    My Mum Was Responsible!

    How do?  My mum, who was born in the UK, was responsible for my addiction to Corrie.  She watched it back in the day when the episodes were filmed in black and white.  I remember characters like Elsie Tanner and Ena Sharples.  I'm also in Canada and the...

    Long time viewer is down playing it some.

    . It's been 32 years viewing. It's not even all that good at times, and really good other times, but it's part of my life and keeps me feeling connected to the Brit in me.

    Long Time Viewer

    Its Grrreat!

    I just love it.  I have been watching it for about 4 years now.  I'm in Canada and we are about 9 months behind the actual time in England but I went online and spoiled it all for myself anyway.  I don't care!!  I had to know if Tracey was going to kill...

    Miss Tony And Rick

    I had casually followed for years but got hooked around the Tony Gordon / Liam storylines and haven't missed an episode since. I miss Tony. I also miss Rick Neelan. Greg Wood is hot. I have a soft spot for villains.
