Skyways
24 April 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I do agree to a certain point, yes .. Skyways was cheap & tacky maybe (i agree) but some people really like these kinda soaps for all there own reasons. Speaking for myself (as a born Aussie now living in Holland) the first time i saw it i was totally hooked to Skyways (and i am not a soap person, believe me). But this series did have a charm all of its own somehow... At the time (mid 80's) it was shown on the UK satellite channel "Sky Channel" (which was on cable-TV at the time here in Holland) and believe me: i did not want to be disturbed when this cult-show was on... But cult it is, and 25+ years later it still has a cult status all of it's own, so whenever you have a chance to watch this again somewhere (which will never happen !) just watch it and enjoy! :-).
