Coronation Street....

A fly on the wall observing the fictional escapes of the soap world.

Its been diabolical this past week! So boring and with very little scripts or anything of interest. I have turned it over the past couple of nights and I am not keen on this twice Monday and Friday either. They seem to be dragging the storylines out for way too long - this whole Ryan escapade! AGGGGGGH! And as for this whole Liam/Maria/Carla thing, its getting beyond tedious now!

I hear they might be going to
spoiler:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
make David's girlfriend pregnant
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

which seriously will make me turn the show off because the last thing I want to be seeing again is
spoiler:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
another teenage pregnancy and David running amock again!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Couldnt bear it!

Hope it livens up soon, I'd like to be posting something more positive about it but in short its been shite lately!!

The thought of Satan's grandson being born fills me with dread. Will the number be 333?

Emmerdale I gave up on years ago, its so far fetched and has some sickening characters in it, its gone into stupidity more than anything else. It was better when it was about life on a farm rather than this modern sex fuelled little village its emerged into :pp:

None of the soaps are a patch as good as they used to be. I used to watch all the soaps with my mum when I was little and have slowly dropped off watching them all. Only one I watch now is Corrie but its really getting on my wick so I may have a break from it for a while.

Even Neighbours was good once! Remember when Kylie was in it :jester: I used to like Home and Away too when it first started!! :eek:

Neighbours was great once. It got too sanitised ( even more than it originally was ). Everything was far too clean. Even the dirt was clean. I saw an episode were Toadie (?) ad just come down from the loft and he had this freshly ironed T-Shirt on and patted it to show this ultra clean dust flying around.

And the other distasteful thing about Neighbours is that it has this almost religious like underlying moral guidance about it.

I haven't watched Neighbours since I was about 6, so thats a good 14 years! I guess absolutely no one from when I last watched it is in it now. Although I did see Madge pop up on Emmerdale when I was channel flicking the other day :chin:

I have now switched off from Corrie for a while as it is grating on me way too much, there is far too much time spent on that Connor family and now more of the buggers are being brought in. Maria has started to grind on my nerves in a very huge way with her acting, facial expressions, voice and posing. I am thoroughly bored with Ryan and his shenanigans and the whole Sarah and Jason thing is still bloody well dragging on. :yawn: Oh yes and I cannot stand that Violet and her sister either. So its time for me to switch it off until it picks up and becomes better again and all the arses whom I cannot bide have gone :pp:

They all seem in the doldrums now.

I hate it when they bring a character back with a complete character refit. Claire in EE was a studious, sweet girl when she left and now she's a psycho bitch from hell. Why not just bring in a new character entirely?

And, as for the sickly sweet moral guidance in Neighbours, yes, I agree. It is like that and they always seem to injure people badly and them nearly always they miraculously recover soon afterwards. But Home and Away has even more sickly sweet moral guidance! Why hasn't Oz produced some hard-hitting, Brookside type soap set in a rough part of Sydney or something, which deals with difficult issues, such as racism etc? There should be way more older Brits in those soaps too, considering how many are emigrating.

Plus I've never seen Pamelal in one yet! How can that be?
