5.0 out of 5 stars A superb collection 26 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase
I'm reviewing this set as an amateurish 'Corrie' fan who wishes to familiarize himself more with life on the cobbles. Having watched only a handful of episodes for nearly 4 years when I was studying in England during the mid-90s (brings back memories!), I now know a lot about the cosy 'Corrie' community watching these discs. Apart from episodes selected from each decade (the lack of plot continuity is regrettably, but understandably, unavoidable), the 'specials' are to be treasured especially for the well-edited footage within character introductions (such as 'The Stars', which I wish were arranged chronologically) and interviews (for example, 'Corrie Controversies' and 'The Street Undressed'). Even if you're not familiar with the situations involved, the extracted dialogues (alternating between the tragic, hilarious, and romantic) are simply brilliant (touching and funny scenes are sandwiched between fiery kisses and gory fisticuffs). Some of the 'specials' are mostly biographical: an in-depth view is given of the actors' real-life drama (domestic joys and sufferings), but with strong reference to their fictional roles in the series. The other 'specials' focus on various relationships, including the major 'Corrie' families (some scenes - for instance, the Tracy and Karen plots - recur in two or more 'specials', but they are hardly monotonous). The golden 12-DVD box has each disc in a separate case (the breaks between the parts of an episode are edited out without any sign of a clumsy jump from one part to another), but (alas) there is no booklet, not even a leaflet; however, the presence of English subtitles for the HOH - except for the short 'Celebs' and 'Best' extras - is a great asset (regional accents can sometimes be difficult to catch).

5.0 out of 5 stars Subtitles -- Yes! 19 Oct 2011
By S. Day
I am so glad ITV has included subtitles. I have resisted getting Network's sets for the various decades precisely because they do not include subtitles. Even with hearing aids, I need subtitles; so thank you ITV. Like other reviewers here, I also hope you will issue composites for each decade, with subtitles, of course.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coronation Street 31 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
DVDs arrived within the week and were well protected by packaging. We have spent a lot of hours watching them and reminiscing about the characters and episodes, deciding whether we remember them or not. A comprehensive archive with plenty of variety.
Do not be tempted to buy 'The Stars of Coronation Street - 50 years, 50 classic characters' which comes up as a recommendation by Amazon - they are the first 5 videos in the collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars coronation Street 21 April 2013
Verified Purchase
An excellent dvd collection if you're a Corrie fan, really enjoyable. Loads of memorable programme clips with profiles on families such as the MacDonalds and the Battersby's, as well as profiles on individual characters such as Ken Barlow and Jack Duckworth. Excellent viewing!

4.0 out of 5 stars Coronation Street Gold 28 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase
Being a massive fan of Coronation street to have a collection of best bits over it's fifty years is fantastic.
would have liked a lot more epesodes from the 90's and 00's though similar to the other coronation street box sets from 60's, 70's and 80's.
A great box of memories.

By Barney
I cannot believe the dreadful selection of episodes from the noughties. Norris at the Commonwealth????? Mel Hutchwright?????? 2 episodes of Tracy Barlow and Charlie????? Hardly the Street at its best. Which buffoon chose these duds?! How could they deprive us of some of the better stories and characters.

Where is Gail and Eileen's fight over Todd and Sarah? Where is Mad Maya burning Dev's shops down? Where is Mike's death in Ken's arms? Where is Karen McDonald's heartbreaking Christmas Day exit?

The lacklustre choice we are given really lets down this set and as a result I will not be buying it. It's not worth the money.
