Coronation Street Fantastic!
6 September 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I love Coronation street and have been watching it forever..I would watch it with me mam if I stayed home from school due to illness.

I remember when I first started watching, it was in black and white. I miss the old characters like Ena Sharples and Uncle Albert.

I do not care for the Sarah storyline much. Maybe it's because I don't like Sarah. Her mother, Gail, is an old shrew.

I love Blanche Hunt, doesn't everyone have a Blanche Hunt in their neighborhoods?

And lovely Rita...she's my very favourite. What a brilliant actress and a shining star.

I love when Les Battersby refers to Norris as "Doris"!

I hope this show runs for another 42 years so I can watch it when I'm in the IL' nursing home.
