“Disappointing story line”

Written on: 14/05/2022 by barb1987 (1 review written)

One of the current storylines about the hospital consultant is so removed from reality it’s almost laughable. The way in which the hospital complaints system has been portrayed is very removed from reality. At no point would a manager have met with the complainant and relayed details and showed him a photo part way through an investigation. The matter would have been referred to the GMC and all communications with the complainant held in abeyance. The storyline erodes trust in the NHS… Read Full Review

“Hospital Consultant”

Written on: 13/05/2022 by Danikau166 (1 review written)

The latest story line in this soap has surpassed any previous unbelievable storylines. A renowned (allegedly) liver transplant consultant is portrayed firstly as a racist, remember he’s white , arrogant female hating individual who plays around with the lives of people that he is saving by betting how fast he can complete a transplant. He is then accosted and assaulted by the, allegedly, aggrieved party. Really. For heavens sake really? The whole story line is utterly and completely bull. The… Read Full Review

“George, snoring, CPAP mchine”

Written on: 09/05/2022

What an unresearched storyline about George and his snoring. George would not be able to get a CPAP machine from his GP. His GP would first have to submit a referral to his local Sleep Service to undergo a sleep study to diagnose sleep apnoea. He would then need an appointment to speak to a physiologist or consultant and only then would he be put on a waiting for a CPAP machine. At present, there is a national shortage of machines. I know it's a soap opera, but the writers really should have… Read Full Review

Like all their storylines. They have become utterly ridiculous. The latest being the liver consultant story and the alcoholic liver transplanted Peter. It surpasses any ludicrous rubbish so far.

It has often said that much of Coronation Street has turned into a medical programme - the only problem is that it doesn't reflect real medical issues, as others have quite rightly stated.

Coronation Street has always been amazingly written with fun sad and exciting times , but on the whole the black comedy ur serious upsetting but offset by humour made it great lately it’s becoming all too depressing , let’s gave some fun times back , don’t lose the ability to draw us in and crate public interest in some really great subjects , some very challenging but you do do well , keep it up but keep some fun… Read Full Review

“Viewer since birth ”

Written on: 13/03/2022 by Donniwoo (1 review written)

Corrie as a special place in a my heart. I watched it for many years and even visited the Granada studios. I watch every episode but I am getting fed up with the storyline and the scripts which are predictable and banal. Craig being the centre of every case even though he would clearly be a conflict of interest. Everyone has been in jail and how many times have they done this Sarah lou pregnancy story, but making it even younger. Don’t even mention sanctimonious toyah I understand that that… Read Full Review

Very well said. The storylines are very shallow and, to be quite honest, on the whole boring. Even now every episode is alas one hour long, the main storyline of note is always right at the end, on the credits at the end.

Also a viewer since birth, the Abi baby storyline I must say is the worst piece of garbage they have ever written and there have been some really bad ones.
I told my wife she can watch by herself for a while to see if I'm going to miss it or not.
I am thinking I may be seriously done with the show after 59 years.
There have been other times where I have stopped watching for periods of time but I believe this may be it.

“Badley Written Stories ”

Written on: 11/03/2022 by Frances478 (1 review written)

I have watched Coronation Street for many years and I have have enjoyed the show. I have watched the adults leave the show and now I see the teenagers and children have taken-over. For that I have lost interest completely. This show is now a soap for teens. The writing and acting has gone downhill and is over the top...bizarre. I will no longer watch Coronation Street… Read Full Review

“New Yankee to Coronation Street”

Written on: 05/03/2022 by Ainsley254 (1 review written)

I'm an American who bought my American wife a subscription to BriBox as a gift because she has been a fan of Coronation Street for years and I thought we could watch it together. I like it a lot but I have to wonder about the quality of the shows writers. The characters just don't seem very smart at times. Most characters have been married to each other or at least have slept with each other. Almost all have been arrested and have drug problems. Diversity for the sake of diversity, not for… Read Full Review

I have decided to stop watching Coronation Street becsvue I can’t put up with Lydia and what that scheming cow has done to Sarah and Adam . . Nobody is ever happy for long on the street and that’s quite depressing to be honest . The Lydia story is the worst ever . She really needs disposing of . When she’s gone.

No humour, no true reality, police that dont behave like police.. Diversity for the sake of diversity.. The hospital should send a bill to the residents of the street for the amount of people who are admitted and the frequency.. There are no characters that reflect normality in a street.. Sinkholes what !! It is dark, boring, unreal, and unnatural.. The women are all portrayed as strong women with one over on the men who are portrayed as weak idiotic and controlled..

Oh what utter trash. Kids storylines, written by people who do not know either their craft or the world we live in. It's not all sensational events. Come back the well written humour and realistic working class banter. Occasioaal social comment but thats it. The programme is dying. RIP my old mate Corrie.

I agree - too much involvement of children. Max/Daniel relationship continues to irritate. Too many political, health etc issues. In the current Classic episodes- around the year 2001 - Sarah is having a baby at the age of 13 - that was certainly true to life. They have found a buried body - that was true to life. There were the bodies buried on the moors and possibly one in concrete on a motorway bridge. This was linked in with humour such as the mouse in Audrey's hairdressing saloon. Looking again at the current what a pity we won't be seeing PC Plod (Craig) acting like a silly policeman who is always there. I could go on...

The storylines are abysmal.

“Absolute rubbish”

Written on: 11/02/2022 by Philippg (1 review written)

I think the Manchester Crime Commisiononer need to get a grip on Weatherfield as there is an almighty spike in so many unsolved crimes in the area and totally idiotic and unprofessional Police officers who have never read the PACE regulations. The unrealistic plots usually come to light by nosey parkers overhearing a loud conversatiin in the street. Pigmy and probably under age writers together with producers need sacking before the programme dies an uncerimonial demise. Get a grip ITV… Read Full Review

You're spot on. I've got to the stage now where I switch over if a storyline is annoying me. Just like most of the soaps, they are getting too dark and the storylines are totally unrealistic. Emmerdale is worst than Corrie and Corrie is bad enough.

“Corrie has gone downhill ”

Written on: 01/02/2022 by KonnerGonzales (1 review written)

I’ve been watching Coronation St for 45 years and I was addicted. It was real life and there was always twists and turns to the storylines but after this soap being a part of my life I’ve decided to give up because the storylines are now ridiculous and the unbelievable. With so many other programmes to watch I’m not prepared to waste 3 hours a week on what has now become rubbish. I’ll watch the Classic Corrie episodes on ITV 3 each afternoon reminisce on a time when this drama was… Read Full Review

It should be renamed "Children's Hour" - there appear to be more storylines involving children than adults. Doesn't compare with the classic episodes.

I couldn't agree more. This has turned into a right load of rubbish. The storylines are too ridiculous for words.
Last night's episode where Craig tinker was supposed to be drunk was a total embarrassment!!! He couldn't act his way out of a paper bag. Policeman!!! Never in a million years. It's lost me as a viewer it just irritates me now. Scriptwriters treating viewing public as idiots.

I definitely agree, started watching with granny at age 10. The storylines were real back then, with true to life plots and good actors. It is a bloody joke right now, and unfortunately, it gets worse week after week! I tune in now and again to snark mainly, whereas before I wouldn't have missed a single minute. I keep saying to my partner " oh Jesus, what a terrible storyline". A lot of the current actors are whack, but not in a good way.
