Re: Coronation Street

Just watching yesterday's episodes, and it occurred to me that certain things are getting out of hand. When half of the characters are homophobic, it is becoming unrepresentative and unreal.

I think the programme would be better entitled 'Lesbos Street'!

Are you sure you mean homophobic? Rather than homosexual?
I agree there is an abundance to be living in one small area. Maybe the water supply needs checking?

Yes, homosexual. Thanks. I was in a rush to get down to Canal Street!

Yes I agree JB, there is far too much emphasis on gay activity.
I also think that Sophie's outburst in 'Speed Daal' was out of character for her.

Re: Coronation Street

No one seems business focused, not really, the characters just play at business folly, god help us post, post Brexit.

Yep, I agree too, Foxy.

Off the top of my head, I can think of 6 gay characters in Corrie.
There is the Vicar, Shaun, Sophie and her mate, plus the two who have just got engaged. Plus we had the saga of David being raped by wots-his-name too.


As for Emmerdale, I can't make out Charity at all. She seems to go both ways!

And now the two lads in Emmerdale are talking about having a baby of their own - exactly the same story line as Corrie are starting with the two girls wanting a baby of their own.

Why do those two soaps always copy each other!

There you go , I've had me moan now.

I think they're running out of ideas.

I have been watching Coronation Street since it first started in the 1960s with only a few necessary breaks.

I'm afraid that not only are they running out of new ideas, they are also trying to populate the place with too many characters and, at my age(!), I'm finding it a little too complicated for my little brain.

Because of the number of characters, there are also too many concurrent storylines and because of the lack of new ideas a large proportion of the programme is becoming boring. Too much of the time is spent on boring time-fillers.

JBR, I do agree with you about so many people now, I can't even remember half their names - as you could probably tell from my post.

Well Spitty, how about this for an idea, stay with me on this one, a rich yank geezer, with a big hat turns up in the Rovers, tells the locals "oma goin a frack on the Red Rec".

Bingo, Dallas on the cobbles.

Re: Coronation Street

Quirky characters needed desperately, Fred Elliott, Spider Nugent and Graeme Proctor. Some hilarious situations they got into.
