I am a native Texan now living in Central Illinois. I began watching Corrie in 2000 when a friend copied off-air tapes he rented from a British grocery in Los Angeles. My best mate and I immediately became engrossed in the events of The Street ca. 1993. I managed to see most of the era up to sometime 1996 via the now defunct cable network TRIO. Through the wonder of the internet I have been able to see and archive most every episode from October 2002 to the present (as well a smattering of episodes from the past and of course the official "Best Of..." releases.) I long for the day ITV/Granada make it possible for us to see ALL of the episodes from the past.
Other obsessions include Pet Shop Boys, Doctor Who and Iain (M) Banks.
