Repedative, weak actors, slow, new actors killed it.
29 February 2008 | by (Aoteroa) – See all my reviews

my sisters use to watch it all the time. it was like the Australian version of shortland street. but now when you watch it, the story kinda repeats itself every month.

Someones heart is broken-car crash-blame game-hugs all over

love-jealousy-prepare for marriage-wedding-something bad happens-divorce 2 weeks later

something horrible happens-blame game-hugs and laughs-no one wonders why all the bad things happen to them

also, the actors are try hards. they cant act. stick to modeling you ugly tarts. i hope they read this =p. another fact. they ain't pretty, they have fat heads, skinny heads, bug eyes, beady eyes. weird lips. no tits. to short, wannabe tough guys but fail.

and the writing is f'd up. and how many times do they have sex with each other? have they realized they had sex with their brothers and sister or ppl close to their bro's and sisters and they still go on in life like nothing happened and when they find out its goes on as a 4 week drama. LAME!

old Home n away was OK. i didn't like it, but this one, its just sad and retarded. save yourselves from the stupidity of this show. its not worth your 30mins of life.
