Unmatchable comedy, great storyline
Wooden acting and useless characters oh and the Mortons
Coronation street is considered to be among the legends of television viewing and with the storylines it produces it certainly can be considered to be a great soap, but does it really deserve this status?
Well lets start with the good points. The highly comic scenes produced by this soap are memorable and go down in television history as truly inspirational moments to up and coming directors. The storylines are also excellently written by the production staff, but let's be honest apart from vicious Tracy Barlow and acid tongue Blanche, the rest of the characters are pretty wooden.
So let me proceed to the bad points. Well I must start with my pet hate- The Mortons. Loud- mouthed, freaky and the total anti-thesis of what a family should be, I would love for them to be fired ASAP. We can all hope. The current shed argument is so ridiculous, you wonder where most of the good writers have gone. So after the Mortons we have repulsive David Platt and his hapless mother and dim-witted grandmother. Yes most of us are wondering what they are still doing on the street, but after all with the others that live there you know why they are still there. Now onto the storylines themselves. Long, drawn out and agonisingly painful to watch the wooden acting, this is all these storylines amount to.
So let's be honest, this soap is stitch, like Underworld's knickers, away from perfection.
