Advantages: Good Actors.
Disadvantages: Can be repeatative.
Coronation Street is a soap which has just celebrated their 50th birthday! It has shown over 7620 episodes over that period, and you can watch it on ITV1 on Monday at 7.30 and 8.30, Thursday 8.30, and Friday 7.30 and 8.30. Each episode is 30 minutes long and the show has and will feature many different actors and actresses.
The story is set in Greater Manchester, on a street, and if you hadn't already guessed it's called Coronation Street (!). The show is about characters that live on Coronation Street and how they all have their own problems, but their pathways all cross at some point.
The storyline features the usual soap material: pregnancy, pub-fights, the odd murder ect. Sometimes the show can be very simular to other shows, such as Eastenders, but Corrie character's make the show unique.
The storyline is difficult to keep continually running for 50 years, so from that aspect I think the writers, cast and crew have done a great job with the show so far, but, nowadays their efforts are becoming futile due to some of the reoccuring stories. Some of the episodes are slighty predictable and a little bit boring, but on the other hand, some episodes are interesting and keep you on the edge of your chair.
Summary: Getting worse?
