Granted he's not a new character, but as Michelle barely said boo about her son for two years, he may as well be. Ryun has been too front burner since his return. Starts a fire, fakes an accident, gets another job, skives off work, and now drugs. In a week. Xin the best friend we had never heard of until she needed a visa. Kirstie who moves in with Ty after what, 2 dates? Stella! All new characters introduced by pounding them in our faces day after day after day. What happened to the fine art of developing characters and relationships and story arcs, of gently layering the complexity instead of slapping it on? I'm tired of greasy fast food, I want a hearty slow cooked meal.

(off soapbox now)

But that's the Corrie writers for you...a new character is shoved into your face constantly until you start skipping episodes. Same thing with Stella's just about every scene. I half expected her to be in the loo with Ryun having a snort. Now we have another go round with Steve and Michelle to look forward to. GAG.

I agree with both previous comments. I never thought I would not bother tuning into the show, but for the past year I have missed many episodes and don't much care if I miss more. A quick read of this column tells me what is happening. There are too many unlikeable characters with awkward personality transplants.

Because there are so many eps a week, it doesn't really matter if you miss the odd few, but that means you can get out of the habit. I usually look at the soap mags, but didn't bother today because the Peter storyline is quiet. I don't much care about Michelle so won't bother following that one. When I see on this site that Roy and co will be having some air time, I'll tune back in. The stories don't interweave so I can select the bits I want. Is that good or bad or just the way soaps are these days?

Agree with all the comments above. Add to that Karl with his barefeet up on Dev's couch five minutes after his tawdry affair with Sunita is discovered..Paul firmly ensconced on Eileen's couch mere minutes after his sobbing 'love of my life' rant over his wife's coffin....all too much and way too soon.
