The Mancunians, Season One, Episode Three

The weather is turning colder, the skies are becoming grey and nebulous (actually, they're not, but that defeats the point just slightely) and you need something to warm the cockles of your heart. Since, I can't be there in person, the best thing I can think of is EPISODE THREE of that most succesful of all soap operas. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, serfs and slaves, boys and girls, pimps and hetairai, it's that time of the week again, when THE MANCUNIANS is updated.

This episode guest stars DR. YEWSLEZ.

The Mancunians, Season One, Episode Four

A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, an author wrote an unoriginal spoof of a soap opera. Put off by some negative criticism from her mother she (a sensitive soul) dissolved into tears and wrote no more. Six months later, a chance finding of the episode plans for said soap spoof rekindled the creative flame in her breast, with the result that EPISODE FOUR of hit sitcom, THE MANCUNIANS is now being given prime airtime once again!

The Mancunians, Season One, Episode Six

It may not be a week since the last episode (though it might be... ooh, the mystery) and I'm really running out of exciting ways to introduce the next episode of everyone's favourite LJ soap... Anyway, here is Episode Six. It is dedicated to romuska. He knows perfectly well why. :P Hope you all enjoy! (And yes, it has become 'Season' one as opposed to 'Series'. I meant that all along. :P)

The Mancunians, Season One, Episode Seven

Responding to criticism is always an essential part of authorship. Sounding like Mr. Collins is an essential part of not taking oneself seriously. I flatter myself I succeed on both counts.

This episode guess stars ROSALIND'S MOTHER.

Season One, Episode Seven: The One with the Political Correctness

This episode of The Mancunians has not been sponsored by anyone because sponsorship is Capitalist corruption of a most obvious kind. This would explain the lousiness of this week's sets.

The Mancunians, Season One, Episode Eight

It happened to one of Shakespeare's plays (only then it turned out not to have been written by Shakespeare after all) and fans are still waiting for it to happen to a Jane Austen novel or ten. In other words, what I'm referring to is the exciting discovery of a lost work by a great author. In this case, it is my own humble creation that has been dredged up from the bottom of my shelf. But I hope the jubilation will be no less than for a "new" Shakespeare or Austen.

So, ladies and gentlemen, with no more ado, it's SHOW TIME!!!!!

The Mancunians, Season One, Episode Nine

It must be about this time that everyone who is away from their city finds themselves in a situation where they miss the delights of Manchester and of Mancunians...

Let me take you back into a world which is like something from a past life... a world where, shock horror, MSN rules the waves of communication. Anything can happen on the internet!

The Mancunians, Season One, Episode Ten

All good things come to an end eventually. Bad things appear not to, but they do as well. Whether the last episode of the first season of everyone's favourite soap, THE MANCUNIANS falls into the former or the latter category, I leave to my loyal readers to decide. As it is, here is the SEASON FINALE!!!

This episode guest stars ROSALIND'S MOTHER.
