Coronation Street Rocks!
18 November 2007 | by (Blackpool, England) – See all my reviews

Coronation Street is a great TV show, From Doreen and Norris' little story lines, to David Platt's evilness, the show keeps me hooked, it differs from the other soaps, since comedy is a main element, with characters such as Becky listening in on conversations and Blanche offering her own view on the going on's it never fails to make me laugh, villains such as Richard Hillman and Mad Maya keeping me hooked I can see myself watching this show until I am old and grey, the show appeals to all ages, with story lines such as the Rosie and John affair to Doreen and Norris amusing romance, and I cant wait until 2010 for the 50th Anniversary episode.
