Coronation Street


Seriously ITV, is this the best you can do? Coronation street has become and abysmal predictable, depressing show. I’m 61 years old and have been watching Coronation Street since I was a child, most likely since the very first episode. Ena Sharples, Minnie Caldwell, Albert Tatlock!!!! Elsie Tanner (Swinging Dodgy). I’ve sympathized with Hilda Ogden. Laughed with Eddie Yates, Stan Ogden, Curly Watts, Jack and Vera Duckworth. It was ALWAYS a pleasure. Annie and Jack Walker, Bet Lynch! All of these people had personality.
Now, the enjoyable characters in the street are overshadowed by the nasty unlikable predictably awful folks. The unbearable Kayla, dear lord, who thought that one up? Most of the recent additions in the ill-fated street have personality or add value to the show.
Like many folks, after over fifty years, I picked up the remote and said ENOUGH! My husband gave a sigh of relief!
What will make me watch again? Hard to say but getting rid of Kayla, Peter Barlow, Tracy Barlow (in fact the whole damn Barlow Family) would be a great improvement. The show would be much better without sappy Toya, whining Maria and the terrible acting of Simon, the ridiculous broody teenager. Kevin doesn’t add much and for heavens sake can someone get him to wash. Also are folks in the Manchester area always that tanned?
A new plot would help, not sad repetitions of previous ones. Coronation is a like a very bad Groundhog day. Endless, mindless and depressing.
