I watched it before I moved to Britain and while I was there then continued when I got back to Canada. I was just frustrated that we are so far behind.

I enjoy Coronation Street. Every day afterwork, it's my easy chair and this 1/2 hour. I like that here is occasionally a bit of humour, the everyday people and the storylines don't usually go on for years, they do end... I think I'll drag out the tred mill - multi-task???

Love Corrie Street. I have been watching since I was about 10 or 11. I either forgot or didn't know that Gayle had an older son that is now on the scene. I do find though, that throughout the years they have introduced a lot more attractive people instead of your everyday people.

The dr would have gone along with the prescription if Joe had admitted how much pain he was in, but then she'd have pushed him for the surgery.

I get such a kick out of Jim McDonald's speaking style!

oh yes! I remember that. But I think even then he was under-playing his pain. She suggested surgery and he didn't want to do that. I have a vague memory of something like he owes money to the evil cousin in the Windass family so can't afford to take time off work for back surgery .... ?

Hey Corrie fans! Can someone remind me why Joe is hiding how much pain he's in? I think it was something to do with not being able to afford to take time off work for back surgery ... but he's tortured with pain and still not giving in to go to the doctor...so did I miss something?

I had dinner last week with some friends of friends who were visiting from the UK ... of course the subject of Corrie comes up but we Canadians didn't want spoilers.

So .... Kevin and Molly, how odd. Disappointed in Fiz, too.

I will be in London in one week and I am going to have to avoid seeing any episodes on tv there.....I am about a month behind on our recorded episodes and they are about 9 months ahead of us in Canada! This could be a major disaster!!!

Yeah, I've missed a few episodes lately too. I do exercise while I watch though, the Wii Free Step is something I can do while watching telly.

Yes, Maria had her baby. You can catch episodes online, fewer food ads! There are odd rules about when they're allowed to show them though, it's only AFTER the Sunday omnibus and I think they only stay up for 2 weeks or so:

Unfortunately I have been very busy and T.V is the last thing on my mind lately. I haven't been watching Corrie for several weeks. I take it Maria had her baby? I have to get back to watching it again, maybe I will try to watch Sunday mornings. I stopped alot of tv watching too because of all the food commercials emoticon

I was in the CBC building, I guess he was there for an interview. He was on the escalator in front of me, coming up from the food court and and I said "hi" and he said he was looking for Pharma Plus so I told him it's across the street, he said thanks and nice to meet you... then I saw him a few mins later and pointed him to the right door. I guess that building is confusing the first time you're there. He was with his partner and looked snazzy in glasses. He's in Toronto for the British Show this weekend, I probably won't go because it's a bit expensive and crowded and I only wanted to go to see him!

cool! I wish I'd started watching it earlier, I only started watching it in 2003. Bet was on for a short time since then, she came back when Jim broke out of jail. She did seem pretty awesome! I really like Rita, she's both kind and bold, fantastic!

What's up with Rosie? I liked her so much when she was younger and goth, I don't think she's pulling off this femme fatale stuff very well.

I haven't check into this board for soooo long, but today's the day! I have to say, I didn't like Steve and Becky together before, but now that they're back from sunny Spain, they kinda look right together somehow. And I agree, that little Simon is a very adorable kid. Better actor than some, too! He doesn't look anything like the two ppl who are supposed to be his parents, though. In fact, it makes me wonder if Craig Charles' character had an affair with Lucy when Peter wasn't looking! He has the same cute smile as Craig Charles, and the same mischievous eyes!
Cheers!

2017 and I am back again... up and down the same 5 lbs, this time on the higher side of 200, depressing since I had stayed just under 200 for almost a year.
Slim is where I wanted to be in 201 & 2011! Never happened, plateaued for a long time and gave up... got off track, but never left, so am back on track again!!! Make 2012 my year! So far, did finally lose 25 lbs. over the summer, but have found about 11 of it so far, it didn't hide g

What's going to be worse is that we are planning a trip to the UK in May! And they are like 9 months ahead of what we see.....that is like almost a years difference when we factor in our being behind. We are just chipping away each night....not enough hours in the day. We got really behind when we moved last year and we haven't caught up since.

OMG! I can't believe I found this group within the Spark People website....delighted! Except for we are about 2 months behind on our recorded episodes! We can't keep up! So...my feeling is to just delete em all and start watching the current ones? My hubby is totally against this....is that funny or what?! Love...the show.

Cheers!

p.s. We are only up to Tyrone and Molly's wedding! Yikes!

Since when did Michelle get so mean? I know she's hurting about Steve and Becky (understandably!) but embarrassing Becky like that in the pub seemed out of character. I haven't watched tonight's episode yet.

Yes, he's awful with the ladies, but he's still a great guy! So I see your conflict. I don't know how he ends up in sleazy situations because he's not a "player".

My vcr tape ran out :-( so I have to wait til Sunday to catch up. Last I saw was midnight on NYE!

Actually, you're right, Magnolia. Steve really does have a disastrous history with women, and it's always his fault. I think I chose to forget some of his past because I've always had a big crush on Steve! Ever since he was a gorgeous teenager!

Steve's been a mess with women as long as I've been watching it. Karen MacDonald, Tracy Barlow, Ronnie and now Michelle and Becky. His character is an easy-going and kind and funny most of the time, but he makes awful choices with the ladies. The first major one I know of was getting Tracy knocked up while he was still with Karen. Rat! But I guess that's what makes Corrie characters sort of like normal people we know....our friends are decent people who sometimes do stupid things.

I watch Corrie online so I didn't know Jed survived. And I didn't know about Liz and Lloyd. Poor Liz, they're really making her out to be a slag, she's had so many men since Jim. I'd go for Lloyd myself though. Red Dwarf, anyone? LOL!

Speaking of other British shows, I was thrilled to see the actress who used to play Mavis on an episode of the Doctor Who DVD I was watching last night. She looks great! She got eaten by a monster in the first few minutes though, poor dear!

I hate what they're doing with Steve's character. He's always had a good sense of right and wrong when it comes to how to treat people, and what he's doing to Michelle right now is very much not right. Ugh!

Cheers!

Yikes! Evil-eyed Tony Gordon killed old Jed Stone! What a scene, too! I could hardly watch it, it was too real! That guy who plays Tony Gordon is really quite a good actor.

BTW, I've been watching lots of DVD's of tv series and films from the UK recently, and it's great fun to see former Corrie Street actors showing up here and there. Sometimes I think there are only about 50 actors in England, because I keep seeing the same people in all productions from that land.

I like watching the new Doctor Who series because many of my favourite UK actors (not necessarily from Corrie) pop up on that show. Plus, it's a brilliant series! David Tennant is a hoot!

I watched the omnibus online yesterday. I hate how Steve is trying to get Michelle to dump him so he doesn't have to be the dumper. Unfortunately, I think lots of men do this in real life. They just start acting more and more like *rsholes, figuring they'll either get away with it and still keep the girl, whether they really want her or not, or they'll get her to dump him and then he walks away feeling no guilt. Grrrrr!

I actually had a man admit to me once that he couldn't stand his girlfriend but he stayed with her for the sex. Yuck!
Men! Phtoooey!!

Steve's not really a player, but he's sure had a lot of lovers. I'm warming up to the idea of him with Becky, but I feel just awful for Michelle, she's having a crap year. But she's awesome and gorgeous, she need not be lonely long!

Becky has come a long way. I really like her, I think she great for the show but too damned good for Steve. She has been through so much with Jason and then her vandalism, but she tries so hard. She certainly isn't ugly and she speaks her mind and has grown so much. Steve is a spineless weasel and deserves to lose Michelle and Becky.

I loved Karen and was disappointed when she left the show.

My problem with Steve leaving Michelle for Becky isn't about what they both look like, but about the characters and story line. Steve has gone through hell with Michelle and had to win her back a couple of times when he almost lost her. Steve has always gone for women who are a challenge for him (can anyone say "Karen"?). Becky holds no challenge for him at all. That's why she's not his type.

I haven't seen last week's shows yet but I do (unfortunately) go online to see what's happening on the show "in the future" (ie on the UK timeline), so I know Becks and Steve-o are ... oh wait, don't let me spoil it for YOU~! LOL!

I can't believe any man would give up Michelle for Becky but this is Coronation St where you can be butt ugly and get the man. That's why we love it!!

I just joined SP and can't beleive there is a Corrie forum! I watch it daily (and then again on Sunday if I can). Tony better get caught! I have a two year old so can't watch the entire episode uninterrupted, but was tehre not something a while ago about him and his ex wife? Was she killed or am I off my rocker? (Quite possible).

I think Maria shoud hook up with Tom,

I have watched Corrie St for as long as I can remember. My parents are both from Glasgow Scotland and they watched it when I was small. I took a few years off, but still watch it now. I have to set my PVR to record and then watch a few days at a time (life's too busy to sit down every night at the same time to watch it). Confession: I also read ahead the weekly updates from Corrie.net... Sometimes the story lines gets a little slow/weird and I want to see if anything exciting is going to happen soon. IMO Steve's an idiot for choosing Becky over Michelle!

I only started watching in 2003, I wasn't really a tv watcher but people I worked with were talking about it.

Lovely Liam! Miss him! I also miss Martin Platt, Karen MacDonald, Les Battersby, and Spider!!!

So many Cdn Corrie boards complain about the CBC! I was actually going to put "please no CBC bashing" in my post. They've put it online on Sundays for 2 weeks so that you can catch up if you miss it. They spend quite a bit of money to broadcast it, we're lucky to have it! I'm often not home to catch it so I've set my VCR to tape it every day then I watch it after dinner in my pyjammies, great way to end the day!

Yeah....what's this Steve-Becky disaster????

That's a great idea, we should start a new team for Corrie fans.

I have only been watching for about 5 years, I vaguely remember Kieran, he left just after I started watching.

I was very disappointed when Liam died, it was so sad, he was a great addition to the show.

Hey there fellow Corrie fans! I've been watching the show since I was 12 years old -- 35 years!!!

Hey, we should start a Coronation Street Fans SP group!

I miss Liam! Although my favourite Corrie hunk of all time was Keith Duffy, the gorgeous Irishman who played Kieran years ago.

If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right. --Henry Ford
