And yes, it is unfortunate I mean the 'new muslim family'. That woman screaming her lines is so irratating and I have to switch over albeit to the news such is the hurry I'm in! Please do not bring racisim into this, because I do know the actor 'Dev' and he and his family fitted in to Corrie quietly with some great story lines. I fear we shall have marriages, babies, fights and more visits from overseas re same family. I tried (with fingers crossed) to watch Peter's trial and with remote control at the readyin case that woman - extended brood popped up. Great hearing the news of Jim returning with Cilla, but 'up' that family pops again and off I go (C 66 COPS). So I daresay when Curly returns I will miss out any storyline involving him. Why didn't Corrie opt for a West Indian family/ Greek family/Chinese family? We have recently being subjected to harrowing news re our British men being murdered - so Corrie should have known their would have been some un-rest thus affecting the viewing. Of course not all muslim people are to be tarred with same brush, but it is unfortunate this family cannot act and the viewers are turning off.
Same thing happened with EE and look at the ratings despite winning the Soap Awards. I'm not a saddo, but have enjoyed Corrie for years with great storylines - alas no more. As someone said on another site: will the last person watching Corrie turn the lights off on their way out....
I don't understand why Corrie has so many different writers and directors in the pot. It seems there is no end to the the writers and directors. Each episode has a different writer and director. The story lines aren't cohesive. The show goes from one crisis to another. Is anybody faithful on the show? I think the producers need to rethink the way Corrie is going. Pretty soon it will be going going gone!
I love Corrie - have watched it since I was a kid - very funny and usually a good range of story lines, but the last year has seemed like one story - is there any character who hasn't had a cheating storyline ?.
Not sure if the Corrie writers read feedback - check Corrie Facebook. Seems fans are getting fed up with repetitive cheating storyline.
The success of Coronation Street over the years has always been the balence between comedy and tragedy. Lately though it is just one awful event after another and it is really starting to wear a bit thin. The murder of Tina followed by the loss of Carla's baby follows the death of Hayley. Then there was the car crash involving Gail's two sons which almost left one of them brain dead. A murder in the Rovers caused by a fire, an ongoing blackmail by a building contractor - the list goes on and on. It really has turned into Eastenders at its worst. I can't see it getting any more cheery for the forseeable future and in fact it has become depressing. It's a real shame that the writers now need a murder or attempted murder every other week to keep veiwers interest ed.
I've watched Cori for the past 10 years, but lately I like to PVR it so I can skip through to the good parts which are getting fewer. Todd should never have come back into the show - the conduct of him and Marcus makes me sick - and Maria, who used to be sweet young girl has turned into little tart - as has Peter's little thing on the side. Why so many perverted relationships?? Sophie and Maddie for instance.
Lets get back to the good clean storyline where we could use our imaginations instead of having undesirable conduct shoved in our faces. Seriously I'm not all that keen on the show any more. I used to hate to miss it - now I almost hate to watch it.
Owing to a busy life, I had 39 (yes, 39) episodes of Corrie recorded and finally sat down to watch some of them the other day. Amazing what trends you notice when seeing so many episodes one after another. In every single episode and in half of the scenes, the people are holding mugs of tea - it's as though they've lost the plot and can only say their lines with a cup in their hands. The 'put the kettle on' phrase is used hundreds of times and is becoming exceedingly irritating. You may have missed this little bit of trivia, but watch next time, and I'll bet you'll see it cropping up. I know it's no big thing, but can't they think of another 'prop'. Poor script writing again.
I do so agree with the comment from a viewer about Maddie - her character drives ME mad and the whining voice of Sophie is just so irritating.
Wish we could see more of Mary and Norris in the story lines - they're both brilliant!
Just watched Corrie catch up from last week and can't believe how bad it's getting!! The acting, the storylines, well just about everything is going rapidly downhill. I've always loved the characters so the bad actors amongst them were bearable but now even the good ones are melting fast. It's as though they've been told to change how they act! Nothing seems "real" anymore! The fun run was a complete joke! Since when have extras been allowed to grin straight at the camera ?? Did anyone notice the guy who kept popping up everywhere with a stupid grin on his face?? He was stood at the start line waving a banner, leaning over everyone to be seen , even squashing poor Amy Macdonald in the process, then he popped up right between Eileen and Leanne with a big grinning face as well as loads of other places!! I couldn't believe it! What a Wally! It was like watching something from a Harry Hill sketch! I thought extras were meant to be insignificant in the background. How come no one told him you can't stand their grinning at the camera so all your mates can see you!? Everything about the show has changed and I'm not liking it! I always watch it because I always have but please bring back the "real feel " or I don't think I can take much more!! Such a shame
Has anybody noticed the lack of table manners in Coronation Street, I know the actors are acting when they eat but please, if you are going to mimic real life scenarios, please show some decorum! I have been watching Coronation Street since I was a young girl and have never noticed the lack of table manners before until recently. The actors eat with a fork or fingers,there is no sight of a knife at all. If a knife does actually appear, they clearly do not know what to do with it. They chew their food with their mouth open and slump over with elbows on the table! OMG, If this really is representative of our society today,god help us! Please, Please, come on the script writers of coronation street, show us some good table manners! We are not all Neanderthal up north,honestly!
the maddie character who is involved with sophie - please make her homeless again - preferably as far away and off our screens as possible - so far she had robbed, assaulted, kidnapped and been seen to suffer no consequences. what sort of a message is this sending to young people - apart from her acting is beyond wooden and unpleasant.
Corrie has got more + more depressing iv given up watching as the writers are rubbish and getting characters to do unbelievable unrealistic crap its one disaster after another trying to boost ratings - they forget you only get high ratings if people care about the characters - i dont anymore. The storylines are an insult to intelligence.
I do consider all are brilliant characters in this series. I am not a melodramatic or depressive but consider it is inconsiderate to deal with cancer, especially terminal cancer, as main subject material in programmes over xmas period.
Hayley portrays a brilliant example of strength and determination to try to continue enjoying what life she has remaining and should have been allowed to continue with this until after the xmas period.
It is a time when many (incl myself) also endeavour to ignore the illness and consequences and just get on with the festive time. Last week we also said goodbye to a life long friend who lost this same battle.
Please be more considerate on the timing of such episodes. Surely a little light relief is warranted over the festive period,
Lloyd, with his look full of hate, is the racist. Well, rather mean-spirited. I always thought the storylines were a bit axxagerated, and I hope it`s the case here in that it does not reflect the average Manchestarian
hi there , i would like to alert you of a matter that has really offended me on national telelvision on cornation street soap on week ending 07/07/2013. you have faye and her dad's story line scenes which are not only distrubing on themselves but also represent children to have similar thoughts and why it is fair for anna to have faye is still debating in my opinion. why do mum's always get custody of children? i do believe that faye was lying in this story line hence all the confusion was created but imagen what other dad's are experiencing at this time who have no acess to see their children. this legal system is so unfair towards dad's and its like they are not classed in anything as equal partners but yet they are because they have half created a child . i find this very offensive and know that many people who have watched this will agree. why do hou have the need to bring in such stupid tory lines which offend parents abilities and put ideas into children's heads ? i think you should be banned from presenting such redicilous storylines which are so influrencing and mean towards dad's . this is why a dad's rights are taken away , watching too much bloody cornation street with such crap in it.
This has become one of the most depressing shows on tv-almost topping reality tv, lol! Nowadays anyone can send their ideas in to the producers in a bid to write for it, and it does show. The storylines seem to now be written by the viewers of Jeremy Kyle, all non stop misery and manic shouting with the occasional crying for an hour. In a desperate bid to maintain the next generation of viewers that live on Jeremy, by any chance? Unlike Jeremy's shows however (which has its comedy moments), for those watching coronation street, it certainly isnt likely to make them feel any better about themselves or generate a good atmosphere. A fair difference compared to the show 10 years ago, it now has far more negative than positive moments. Its the soap equivalent of what movies have become-where constant 'special effects' are more important than the storylines. In soap terms, its the radical storylines and high vocal argumentative tone throughout that rule to draw in the crowds. Some may argue 'but this is life', but that sounds more of a reflection on their own life than anything else.. terrible show-no depth, miserable.
I have been watching Coronation Street for many years, all good things come to an end!!
I WILL NOT be watching it again, it has turned into the most negative TV show ever. What alot of backstabbers are on it now. It is no longer a pleasure to watch, nothing uplifting about it, just a street full of people hurting other people.
I would rather watch Maurey Povich at this rate.
What alot of rubbish the great Cornation Street has come to!!!
My whole family loves the show its awsome even my husband watches with me after work everynight lol.. and he aint much for soaps! We really miss Becky though she was our favorite actress in the show would be nice if she returned !!! HINT HINT and Iam sure alot of others would also love to see her back she kept the show alive and fun always wondering what was to happen next just love it use should make the episodes longer!! lol but bring becky back to start some fun!
Coronation Street has become a dark depressing dour clone of Eastenders, soulless and humorless and devoid of interesting and engaging characters. It should be renamed, how about Northenders or Depression Street ?
