This review is from: Coronation Street - The Best of 2000-2009 [DVD] (DVD)
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.
