“What a come down for a great show”

Written on: 22/02/2021 by Rochede1968 (1 review written)

I've watched Corrie for 30 odd years. It's had its ups and downs, but for the last fifteen years it has slowly deteriorated, and the last three or four years in particular have been dreadful. The storylines are poor, too many are dark or sensationalist, while the humour, that used to be great, is now pathetic and unfunny. They try too hard to please the pc brigade, but in doing so have ruined a great working class show. For example, how many straight people have suddenly turned gay(?), and the… Read Full Review

“Standard of acting and storylines.”

Written on: 15/02/2021 by Holty17 (1 review written)

I really think that the story writers, and actors would be unemployable in any other show but Corrie. Not in the least like reality, a 5 year old could do better. And, at the end of the programme when viewers are asked if anything has affected them to contact the number shown, I would say yes, all the crime which goes undetected,in punished, exactly the same in Emmerdale… Read Full Review

“Lost it's entertainment.”

Written on: 06/01/2021 by PERKIG (2 reviews written)

I have watched Corrie for 60 years but it has now become unwatchable, the new Bailey family are just awful with both Michael & Grace 2 very unlikeable characters. The current storylines are unbeliebeable & the humour has vanished. So sad as this used to be unmissable entertainment… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/01/2021

I agree. Its like we need to have a diverse family so we will throw this lot in and make it up as we go along. pointless gay conflicts, assault, murder, unwanted pregnancies, cast members disappear and then suddenly turn up, and the latest ploy is Ray who with a bit of luck, will buy up all the houses and businesses and move the whole lot out. I would like to see the garage, Roy's rolls and David Platt
and Shona carry on, and Joe Duttine and Sally make a good pair, but the rest of them are made to look stupid with story lines that are quite ridiculous to be honest.

This has now turned into a programme for teenage children. However can anyone tell me that any teenager is watching Coronation Street? As I have said before when it started there was very limited tv channel choice so you could discuss it the next morning in the school playground. Things are a little different with covid but I think this still applies.

I agree with everything yo have said, you are very brave to mention the diverse issue, it really is spoiling many t.v programmes today especially as the writers don't seem to know how to write for them.

“It's complete dross!!”

Written on: 01/01/2021

The storylines are so predictable and generally they are so ridiculous and unbelievable. PC TINKLER will soon be chief inspector with the way he's involved with all crime on the street, it's a joke. The people who do the storylines need sacking and though you do need some laughs along the way Corry is now just one big joke! R.I.P… Read Full Review

“My Old Favourite - being ruined”

Written on: 10/12/2020 by mikol99 (1 review written)

I love Corrie & have been watching it since it began (I am in my mid 70's). There has been some excellent acting (Leanne), but some of the story lines have become ridiculous. For heavens sake..two pensioners clinging onto a roof and the granddaughter who has just been bashed on the head & kicked while she is down.... suddenly appears on the roof with them !! I do love the comedy parts of Corrie.... but this is funny in a bad way… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/12/2020

What you don't mention is that Geoff sets fire to the house and it almost becomes a raging inferno, yet miraculously it puts itself out. No further mention is made of the fire. As regards to the people going on the roof - utter rubbish!!

As other reviewers have almost said - why watch it? I only do so out of a misguided loyalty having watched it from the early days.

There seems so little continuity nowadays and I forget who lives where and who lives in the pub.

Getting worse!! I suppose the only consolation is that we can record it and fast forward whereas in those interesting days of the 1960's you either watched or you didn't.

Ray Crosby is putting on the most awful and non authentic northern accent it is cringeworth and Embarrassingly bad ‘acting’ Stop it please ...He is not from the north and so his accent is not watchable . You would think there are much better northern actors that could have been given the part and acted the part more professionally and Over acting Unconvincing And ridiculous… Read Full Review

“This Yasmine episode is being taken too far ”

Written on: 02/12/2020 by SusanJE (1 review written)

The way he is being allowed to get away with things and do what he does is too far fetched. People who are in this situation at this moment need to be able to see a light at the end of the tunnel. It is about time it was brought to an end that gives those in that situation hope. People watching this would see no hope. It could cause them further problems… Read Full Review

We need to be cheered up, a bit of humour people have suffered enough this year the program has become self indulgent it's supposed to entertain the leanne storyline is really badly timed it was a mistake running this story now it's the last thing everyone needs big big mistake people watch soaps as a bit of light relief from their own lives to catch up with the everyday lives of other folks let other programs deal with the big issues we just want the gossip back bitting and tittle tatle a soap by its very nature shouldn't be taken too seriously its a bit of light relief otherwise we would all be going out to watch shakesperion tragedys it should be a soap opera not a soap box, bring back the light relief

Cannot agree more. As my brother says "it's now a medical programme". What medical issues and other social issues haven't they covered - I think most things have and have been done to death.

I watch and look forward to the classic Coronation Street on ITV3 Mon-Fri afternoons. They have a combination of humour, tragedy and are very much true to life.- certainly life at that time.

In the current series (which is no way to celebrate its 60th birthday with the current storylines ) such things as Shaun and can't remember his name going door to door like an ice-cream lady in the cinema selling beauty products has put it to new depths. Horrible.

And now we have the new Todd talking to the new Summer. It gets worse and I only watch it because I have done for years.

“END CORONATION STREET NOW”

Written on: 02/11/2020 by GabrielleEwing (1 review written)

Will someone please drop a bomb on Coronation Street and put us all out of our misery. I am starting to swear at the screen, especially when some of the child or young person actors appear. Not only are the story lines unbelievable but it is a pain to watch. I enjoy the Classic episodes during the afternoon. The present Coronation Street has had its day and is nothing to do with a street in the suburbs of Manchester. So please let's have a storyline, maybe a spaceship comes and wipes out the… Read Full Review

I stopped watching about 4 or 5 years ago when corrie and emmerdale had similar story lines.
I thought I would have a quick look yesterday and was so so disappointed at the rubbish acting,dragged out storylines..so so bad.
I saw some actor quoting Churchill, a silly girl acting even sillier in front of a bulldozer.
Rita Sullivan looked as if she didnt belong as did Ken Barlow.
We are watching "Classic Coronation street " at the minute,where the storylines were both so very funny..but also keeping you gripped to your seat..
I am amazed these veteran actors want to be associated with awful writing.
I cringed and my husband and I both agreed they should end it now.

The way the latest episode finished with two people on a roof and then a third person but what about the fire that had been started in the house? That was the height (?) of stupidity. I couldn't agree more about the Classic episodes - humour, tragedy and to a large extent true to life. In the present serious certain actors make me cringe. Enough said!!

I agree with all of that. I suppose an actor has to work, and Some of them are paid ridiculous sums for what they do, but sadly the program is being dragged down in the gutter with most of the other soaps.

I only really continue to watch the current episodes because I have done for years (the Classic episodes I actually look forward to watching). However last night's episodes seemed to be directed at teenagers. Surely teenagers don't watch Coronation Street? When I was a teenager in the sixties we had only 2 or 3 TV channels and you either watched or you didn't, with no video recorder. In those days you might talk about last night's TV in the school playground but surely that cannot be the case today.

Written on: 30/10/2020 by TaraMcDougall489 (1 review written)

Who researches the story lines. Yasmin and Geoff, the police took the laptop why didn't they check the hard drive for all his deleted footage. Imran is a criminal lawyer or family, seems to take anything on. We have now have the story of the street being bought up, is anybody using a conveyancing solicitor or is Imran too busy on other things. I thought Coronation street researched their stories, must all be on lock-down. Wont even go down the Johnny road… Read Full Review

Yes they do insult your intelligence. They seem to pander to the p.c. brigade these days, and us oldens, are supposed to except it. There are some good actors but they are dragged down with ridiculous story lines . I fast forward until David, Roy, Garry, Kevin, Tyrone, Tim and Tracey come on. The son of Nick who has just joined is very good as well.

I don't swear in public and I don't like swearing. However I sit on my own watching the latest Coronation Street and especially with the latest "new" family I am constantly swearing at the screen. The programme is now utter rubbish - why does someone always suddenly appear when something happens. Please please put us out of out misery and maybe dear old Ken and Rita (plus Roy) can be abducted by aliens from outer space who simply make the street disappear
