Had a good cry on Tuesday......

was glad I was on my own.  

Now why was I crying..............you're going to think I am daft but I was watching Coronation Street and it was the episodes where Sinead dies.


I am well aware that this is not "real" but have to say it was well written this story line and the actors portrayed the situation so well.  I have been watching Coronation Street for years, and despite having a love and hate relationship with it, I always keep watching it.  Some storyline's seem to drag on, but this one with Sinead was a heart breaker and a perfect length.

Well done to the actors and the writers on this storyline; I wouldn't be surprised if they won awards for this.

we used to be avid viewers of Coronation Street but haven't watched it for years, it used to be on twice a week, Monday and Wednesday I've no idea what day(s) it airs now, but i know one day it's on for half an hour then another programme is shown then corry for half an hour again, which seems mad to me, why they can't just show an hour all in one go I've no idea!
I don't watch any soaps now.

I had to step back from it for a week or so. That story line was to close to home for me right now. We had someone close to us pass last week.
I'm looking forward to some of that unique Corrie comedy!!! Where is Joe Duthey (Tim) these days???

I’m afraid I have a rule only to watch news programmes and comedy ( mind my sense of humour is somewhat expansive and decades ago in the era of the Duckworths extended to Corrie) but just can’t handle pathos

I thought I would have to fast forward through this storyline because these two characters get on my nerves, but I’m really enjoying it (if that’s the right word). The actors have done a good job.

Don't be ashamed of having a good weep. It's cathartic. I often cry in movies and even the occasional book can bring out the tears.

It was a pass the Kleenex night. Even the husband had "something" in his eye.

I just wish Bethany would go away and let the man grieve.

I've never watched it, so I'm blissfully unaware.

Oh Gill, I cry when I watch some TV shows all the time. I also cry at sad parts of books.

God bless.

I don't know the times it's on, haven't watched it for years. Sometimes I ring my sister when it's on, and have to try and chat with her while she has one ear on the tele. I like to watch old Corrie on youtube, can't beat the older original cast.

I cried to so sad , I to have lost loved ones from Cancer . I have been watching Corrie for about 43 years it is the longest running show in television history it has been running for 58 years and still amazes and grips me every time and it covers so much of life's changes, ups and downs and yes even the funny bits of life . I watch it via streaming on android straight from Britain so I am a week or so ahead of our Canadian broadcasting of it .

I haven't watched it for years either. I used to love it when the characters involved were Curly & Raquel, the Duckworths, Alec Holroyd & Bet Lynch, Eddie Yates and Norris but especially Sunny Jim & Minnie Caldwell from the really early days.

I lost interest when it started getting daft with murders & that tram crash.
