Anyone who watches any TV programme for long enough will fall in and out of love with the show, especially when it's their favourite telly programme ever. And because it's your favourite programme, you expect so much from it and when it doesn't deliver the goods, it disappoints like no other telly programme can.
Is Corrie delivering the goods for you now? The jury's out on the sofa in our house.
Things I'm LOVING about Coronation Street right now include Sylvia, Audrey and the Platts, Rita and Dennis, Eileen, Paul, Lesley and the Alzheimer's storyline - because it's been done so well despite the fact it's ended so abruptly with no mention of Social Services and the help they can provide
But, come on Corrie, there's plenty for this fan (of 40 years) to not give a toss about right now. Top of the list for this fan, surprise surprise is Stella - her accent of course, is still bad. This week she told Eva "close the door arfter you leave". No Northerner, ever, ever says "arfter". There is only one r in after. And then she threw Karl out which I felt was good to see, finally, I thought, the woman's got a backbone. And then she took him back despite him being responsible for putting her dream of running the Rovers into jeopardy. That's not being a feisty, strong woman. That's just being soft in the head. Also, Karl and Sunita have no chemistry and are awkward to watch, as are Tommy and Tina and I remained unconvinced that there's a point to Maria.
But enough about my moaning. What are you loving and hating about Corrie right now? What would you change if you could?
