This week, we ask the question "Is This A Golden Era For Corrie?". Personally, I figure that the previous Golden Eras (Corrie at its best) for Corrie was 1962-1968, 1976-1982 and 2001-2004, with the ultimate era 62-68, when Corrie drama was at its grittiest. So what we are asking you is this era (2010-2011) a Golden Corrie Era?
I think so. Corrie these days remind me much of the 76-82 period, where there was a distinctive sense of community in the air, particulary at Roy and Hayley's wedding, which is, personally, my favourite ever Corrie episode. It reminded me so much of the 70's episodes I have watched on my box set. Of course, the Tram Crash episodes may not remind people of Corrie they remember from their younger days, but it reminds people how Corrie is still the best Soap Opera on TV, even after 50 years.
So that is why I think Corrie is currently in the midst of a Golden Era, every Corrie I watch is enjoyable. Sure, it may not equal the glory days of 62-68. but this period of 2010-2011 (and maybe 2012) is certainly Corrie's freshest and best episodes for ten years. Lets just hope it carries on that way.
So it's a Yay from me, what about you?
