I have been watching some of the first episodes of Coronation Street, the 50 year old prime time soap aired in England, on YouTube, and have been enjoying the episodes. I've gone to the beginning, and am gaining interet as I watch each one. Great acting, and writing as well. I have been looking around, and it seems this TV show has only been released in Region 2 sets. Of course, this is a problem, since my DVD player from Best Buy only plays Region 1 DVDs. Have any of these sets been released on DVD for region 1 viewers? I'd love to follow this fine show through its' history. The sets I have looked at are divided by decades, with 8 episodes from each year... You seem to be able to follow the storyline somewhat from these sets, which sounds interesting to me. In addition, a new DVD set called 50 Years of Coronation Street has been released. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the show, and it is still being broadcast with new episodes. Move over Guiding Light and As The World Turns. Any ideas for me?
