Coronation Street on CBC
This time of year is a scheduling frustration for Corrie fans in Canada. The Stanley Cup - a 10 week marathon of hockey playoffs - pre-empts the evening showing of Coronation Street. We are left with a Sunday morning 'omnibus' (as they say in the UK) starting at 7:30 AM. That is an improvement over years past when we were left with nothing and simply got further and further behind. Now, CBC is streaming it on the internet. At your convenience - the whole week's worth and no commercials. Now, if only the computer screen were bigger. It's a little cozy gathering around the armoire.
