Storyline

This Australian soap is not defined by a family (as Dallas' Ewings) but tellingly named after its site: an affluent residential stretch of the Gold Coast in Queensland, where people of different walks of life -the casting guarantees lots of eye candy on the beach, many actors being young and attractive- gyrate around the wealthy owners of villas and yachts. A major story line is the murder of tycoon Sonia Kingsley, who had even more enemies then the initial list of suspects, such as her ex, TV reporter Trey Devlin and various other family and business relations. However as the investigation creeps forward other events unfold and other characters and story-lines are interwoven, including the not so wealthy, e.g. Canadian Tim Browning who works as a lifeguard, and would-be-capitalists such as the young but enterprising Rick Carlyle.

It's so bad it's addictive!
5 February 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I'm not normally a fan of Aussie soaps, and when I first saw Pacific Drive a few years ago I thought it was pathetic - really corny story lines and pretty poor acting. But once it was delegated to late night screening (I'm a night owl) I started watching a few episodes and I was instantly addicted!!!

I was left hanging when it was suddenly taken off TV here in Australia (probably due to poor ratings), but I believe there are numerous episodes yet to be seen here in Oz. I think it's screened in several countries.

You really have to watch a few episodes before you get hooked. Apart from several really good looking actors, the scenery is great - it's filmed on the Gold Coast in Queensland.

Give it a go, there's worse soaps out there.
