The ultimate soap which has gone to far

Advantages: Long standing with bizarre storylines
Disadvantages: Some storylines drag on
Coronation street is a classic all time favourite soap for not only myself but for many many people, however in recent months Im not sure whether it has changed writers or the writers have simply gone a little mad.
The programme is on every monday at 7.30pm and 8.30pm, wednesday 7.30pm and then again on friday at the same times as monday so a double bill really.
It has been going for 50 years now and each and every year it has the craziest story lines and albiet many of them are based on real life, this life then goes into absolute madness mode and I feel lately their storylines have gone a little bit to far, so much so they are funny.
The tram line crash was quite spectacular and a very good storyline, however the breakdown of the marriage between kevin and sally is a little boriing now as well as the storyline with the dead colin and the murderer fizzes husband being almost humourous about his acts of murder. Im not sure where this storyline is heading but its certainly one that is now dragging and needs to be concluded. I havent felt this in the past with coronation street as usually storylines have gone on but have always been quite substancial and yet occasionally lately it has dragged in the wrong direction.
Dont get me worng however with such a popular soap and with some characters who have been in it long standing you never fail to familiarise yourself with this soap and it is endeering as well as funny and a mind number to watch in the evening to relax with.
One soap to watch for sure and possibly the only rival to eastenders.
Summary: The only soap to rival eastenders so watch it
