4.0 out of 5 stars A trip down memory lane 21 April 2012
Verified Purchase
Coronation Street has always presented quality programming, and that didn't change at the beginning of the 00s. However, there is definitely a change in the show. Episodes in this boxset are much more action packed, maybe even too action packed. There's a heck of a lot of explosions and fires which can be slightly draining, although still entertaining nevertheless. Compared to the previous 4 boxsets, it's got to be said that this one just simply isn't as good. It's entertaining stuff, don't get me wrong, particularly in terms of nostalgia, but the influx of terrible characters/actors in the 2000s increased. Sean and Tracy spring to mind, but there are many more. Of course there are some fabulous characters, such as Richard Hillman and Shelley, but to me this boxset stands out as the weakest of the 5. However, it's still worth a watch, but with no subtitles or extras, £42 is slightly a high amount to pay.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but a lot missing 7 Aug 2012
By Jaynie
Verified Purchase
I have all of the Coro boxsets now, but have to agree with other reviewers, now I have seen right through the years, the 2000's aren't as good as the 70's , 80's and 90's. When you watch them from decade to decade it is really obvious the stories are just trying to be too dramatic, which I suppose is keeping up with the times. Also, there were far too many 'to be continued', most frustratingly 2007 when Tracy whacked Charlie over the head with the statuette. Instead of showing the outcome (which we all know) the next one was a boring episode from 2 months later, featuring just Tracy and Deirdre, talking about Tracy's upcoming court case for the murder. So boring, infact,that my daughter and I fast forwarded it, something we have never done in the history of all our Coro boxsets! I really dont know how or why they have chosen some of the 2000's episodes, but disappointingly have missed some really good ones out. (I never thought I would give a negative comment to Coro, I am a life long fan! Sorry)

4.0 out of 5 stars Splendid collection 15 July 2013
By Wim2600
Verified Purchase
Having only quite recently become a regular Coronation Street viewer, it's been great familiarising myself through the 80 episodes in this box set with the characters and storylines that made the show the institution it is today.
I had already started collecting and reading quite a number of books on the Street and its origins, and these dvds are a terrific way of bringing to life what I'd been reading about.

The dvds come in a nice, compact box, and I was pleasantly surprised the box includes a booklet outlining the contents of each episode in the collection.

As I'm not a native speaker of English, I would have liked English subtitles... although I must admit I find the dialogue in Weatherfield easier to understand than that in Walford.

To all Coronation fans, this is a must. Great viewing and some great memories, some that I hadn't seen either which was good. I think I have got every dvd made of coronation street and Me and my mini friend (we do minitures) watch them all the time over and over!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Change rules the world 13 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
Change rules the world - also on Coronation Street - a very well depicted social epic of the years 200 - 2009 in all its glory and downfalls of a modern society living in the millenium.

3.0 out of 5 stars I remembered more 23 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
I know when there are only eight episodes covered in a year that all the great episodes can't be covered. I think there should have been a few longer episodes so that the storylines could have been played out. It was good to see the old characters though, and I'm sure I will buy the next decade when it comes out

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Memories!! 19 Mar 2012
By Ed
I was pleased with how quickly this item was shipped internationally. Product arrived in perfect condition. We were in the UK for three years and loved Coronation Street. It was nice to watch the ones again we remember seeing. My only problem with this set was picking only 80 episodes and since they were just randomly picked there was no flow to them. This does not deter me from recommending this set, however. Please note these DVDs are Region 2 so if you live in a country that has other than Region 2, you'll need to purchase a multi-region DVD player. I did that and it works great. Classic stuff!
