Addictive stuff...
30 November 2003 | by (Northampton, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's only been the past 6 months or so that I've started watching Hollyoaks (finishing a-levels left me with free evenings after work until uni started) but I have to say it's pretty damn addictive! I think you just have to take it as it is - a lighthearted soap with a mix of serious and not-so-serious storylines. Great stuff!
