Streets ahead

GLUM! Coronation Street, ITV1, 7.30pm
It’s getting harder and harder to watch the scenes between Shelley and Charlie these days. We knew it was coming, of course, but the storyline has just become so darned unpleasant that it’s starting to make us shiver. It doesn’t look as if it’s going to be settled any time soon either – we’ve been sitting here praying for the return of Susie Blake as the indomitable Bev to come and put a stop to all of it, but so far poor Bev is having no luck – she’s been thrown out of the Rovers, and Shelley’s refusing to speak to her. Ouch. Elsewhere, the mighty Blanche injures her hip, but we’re just relieved it’s not her spleen, as we wouldn’t want anything to tide the steady flow of bile that we’re used to hearing pour out of her mouth, and Sally resigns from her job at Underworld after Janice’s trick. Well, either that or she’s forgotten how jobs work when you’re not sleeping with your boss.

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
