For any other Coronation Street watchers, are you also fast- forwarding through great chunks of your recorded episodes? Ughh! Give me the old episodes. Is it new writers? Is it what they think what the public wants? Just curious.
Sorry, not a Corrie Street fan! Perhaps they are trying "to move with the times"?
Yes, I think there’s more of that. Characters just aren’t as “big” anymore.
I've watched Corrie since day ONE. My daughter named her son after one of the characters (he's now a father of three!). So yes, Corrie blood runs through our family. I'm finding some of the stories involving the younger characters rather boring and fast forward through them. Love CBC GEM for that ability!
I started watching Gem on my computer to see My Big Family Farm, which I love, but I’m using the free service, so lots of ads. Now I’m curious which character your daughter named her son after!
And I've never watched. On the whole, I don't care for "modern" stories with young casts.
I was raised on Coronation Street, the entire family are watchers. We all agree it is loosing its appeal. There aren't any characters that I care about anymore. No one tells the truth, no one stays married or committed in a relationship ... I know it's a show, but come on, give us some real life, not just headlines or causes.
Hallelujah! So it’s not just me!
All the soaps seem to have degenerated and are trying too hard to attract viewers instead of staying themselves. I think the only one I watched was over thirty years ago..the kids when very young loved Neighbours!! Now that is finishing!
gz agreed. Neighbour's ending is the end of a world gone by :(
I have never watched it Jenn. I don't know anyone who ever has in fact.
Watched for many many years! Gave up a couple of years ago and husband gave up last year. What a shame, it was a ritual for us.
