When will the awful kidnap story be over? And that Kylie nonsense be finished? I generally love Corrie but these stories have nearly tipped me over the edge.

When will it be safe to tune back in?

I'm not watching til Andy is free. It's beyond ridiculous. I know it's not real, but still. Phelan just makes me feel angry inside!

JustPutSomeGlitterOnIt Tue 10-Oct-17 21:09:52

Same. I just can't bear it. My man keeps patronisingly reminding me 'it's not real' angry but it's just so, so unpleasant.

Why is Billy suddenly a thief? Makes no sense.

MusicToMyEars800 Tue 10-Oct-17 21:15:26

We are all moaning about the same stuff on the Corrie thread grin
It is just ridiculous at the mo.

ferriswheel Tue 10-Oct-17 21:24:29

Oh, I thought the Corrie thread was just too big to read and catch up with you all.

I liked Phelan but that bloody cellar is beyond grim. And as for the vicar being a bad guy, its just too depressing for words.

I seriously used to love Corrie but since I got Netflix I really can imagining just ditching it. It is so, so tedious.

Billy's a thief?

And poor David's kids must be sooooo mixed up ....

MusicToMyEars800 Tue 10-Oct-17 21:33:53

I feel sorry for David's kids, And for the kids that never seem to be home with their parents.

OP, there's a new thread, It's only 4-5 pages long so would be easy to read through smile

Free the Weatherfield One!

Thanks, I'll go and have a look. Am watching Doc Foster on Netflix now rather than Corrie. I feel a bit sad its not a good watch anymore, well for me anyway.

I have up with Corrie a few years ago and have what he Netflix's ever since. Really couldn't imagine that I'd ever stop watching but i really don't miss it

Gave up on corrie a couple of years ago when they (yet again) used cancer as a story line(fizz s kid). I don't find cancer entertaining, having lost friends and family to it, so I stopped watching, after 30 years of loyalty. And I have never missed it either.

Lucisky I'm sorry to hear that.

And yes I agree, I realise I miss weeks of those stories out too.

Yeah, I'd actually buy myself back a fair bit of time if I stopped watching it. It used to be a firm favorite.

ferriswheel Wed 11-Oct-17 06:59:04

Actually that means the only thing I watch on normal tele is Cold Feet, but surely that will be on Netflix soon enough too.

MusicToMyEars800 Wed 11-Oct-17 10:39:23

Doctor Foster was good for the first series, the second series was just craaazzy grin
I don't have Netflix, but am really considering getting it in the future.

Corrie has gotten stupid, but I watch anyway as there's normally nothing else to watch, I didn't watch it for years.

HarrietKettleWasHere Wed 11-Oct-17 10:46:14

Rana is gay now too. The gay storyline has been done to death in Corrie!

MusicToMyEars800 Wed 11-Oct-17 10:54:20

It has Harriet.
I know a few storylines that are coming up, seem ok, so will watch for those ones.

TurquoiseShine Wed 11-Oct-17 11:08:15

I feel similarly Lucisky.

Stopped watching Eastenders for various reasons at the moment. Many scenes would not be out of place on a horror movie. The Girl in a Prom Dress being set alight (shades of Carrie). Its not engaging. Just sensationalist and depressing. I think at the moment they are filming someone having a mental breakdown even though she has loads of support just like in real life.

TurquoiseShine Wed 11-Oct-17 11:09:58

^I'm not sure exactly, as I stopped watching in 2 weeks ago.

Finally gave into Netflix.

But really, just want a half an hour of not-too-heavy, but engaging TV to relax in the evening.

Is that too much to ask angry?!

Bluelonerose Wed 11-Oct-17 11:13:06

I really want to punch phelan in the face he is so irritating and "faking a car crash" how the fuck could you even do that??

charmedrose Wed 11-Oct-17 11:35:26

The cellar scenes have actually made me stop watching. Are you listening Corrie scriptwriters?? They are depressing to watch and also beyond ridiculous. angry

Katedotness1963 Wed 11-Oct-17 16:27:06

Oh god! Is Rosie back? I haven't watched since David's sister with the mouthy, back chatting, sneering daughter came back. I could not watch her scenes. Tina? No. What was her name?
