A long time ago when I watched Coronation Street and EASTENDERS,
Ena sharples and her 2 cronies, Elsie Tanner with her stupid son Dennis,
Angie and Den it was fun and entertaining,
What happened is it because I got old with a victor meldrew complex,?
Or maybe the standard of acting and writing has deteriorated to an extent that they are not worth watching?

I really believe you sqad., when you say mrs sqad knows everything :.)
Question Author
SANDRA,you should know by now,not just Mrs Sqad but all missus know everything and are always right
Well almost everything............;-)
I think the acting in Eastenders has got better and it is generally very well cast. The trouble with Coronation St is that they tried to make it 'camp' and the characters aren`t real anymore.
Jordy/anne..........she also knows everything about, fashion, cooking, the Royal family, F1 racing, interior designs, spending money, looking after her husband.........you know, the wife of yesteryear. I went out to earn the money and she always looked immaculate on my return home with a properly prepared meal.

"The trouble with Coronation St is that they tried to make it 'camp' and the characters aren`t real anymore."

Mrs sqad says: you are quite correct but that is the wauy of the world now and there is even a BLACK family moving next door in Coronation St.
Oh no. What'll happen the property prices. They aren't gay as well are they ?
O_G...put your money on at least one member of the family being gay.........or a Lesbian.;-)
I don`t mean that there are gay characters in there. There are gay characters in Eastenders. It`s just that they camped up the characters which made them OTT (I`m thinking of that man who was a butcher and I think he might have worked behind the bar but I`m not sure as I only glanced at it when my Mum was watching it) - quirky, but not real.
One of the sons is gay :-)
Margo......LOL.....well i never.......;-)
Forgot to add he's also a footballer. The mother is played by Lorna Laidlaw - Mrs Tembe ex Doctors
Mamy - could you provide a link to when - quite old episode but a couple were cavorting in bed and the roof collapsed - that I found funny. Can;t remember names but Sherrie Hewson may have been the lady.
I too think the acting in most of the soaps is not too bad - they are coping with very bad script writers.

As Waterboatman aptly describes the TV as the idiot box - he is correct.
jj, I think that was Cilla and Les Battersby. Cilla was a character something like Beth is today ! I still love Corrie and it's the only soap I watch. Yes, it gets daft and boring at times, like how quickly Norris moved out and the new people moved in, it's never that quick in real life - but I still love it !
Sorry JJ, been at the hospital.

One of the characters is older than his own mother I think
thanks Mamy - that's the one - she was good Cilla and Les too.

Hope you are ok.
I'm getting there JJ x
