It had a few fans, but lacked the suspense and the ratings of other soaps
16 July 2005 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Yes, I was a big fan of the show at the time and thought a lot of the girls were cute at the time, including Jessica Napier who is the same age as me. There have never been reruns shown of Echo Point to my knowledge so I don't know if I would still like it today, but it was similar in ways to Home And Away and Neighbours without being ridiculously melodramatic like those two shows can be. Maybe the lack of big shocks and surprises led to its downfall. It was just too pleasant and too close to normal life, and people tend to watch dramas to escape their boring normal lives or watch something they wouldn't normally see, which this show didn't really have. Not even the introduction of former big soap stars like Melissa Tkautz (E Street), Victoria Nicholls (Prisoner, The Restless Years, Sale of the Century) and Rowena Wallace (Number 96, Sons and Daughters, Prisoner) could save this show.

Still, there must've been some talent there when you look at where the stars of this show are today. Jessica Napier has gone on to be in popular Aussie TV shows such as McLeod's Daughters and Wildside. Martin Henderson went on to be in US movies Torque and The Ring, and got seduced by Britney Spears in her Toxic video. Rose Byrne has been in several successful movies such as Two Hands with Heath Ledger and Bryan Brown, Star Wars Episode II as Natalie Portman's double, and Troy with Brad Pitt and Orlando Bloom and Eric Bana (and she's also one of the cutest female actors going around today who I still have a crush on). Tom Long went on to be in successful Aussie TV show Seachange and starred in popular movie The Dish with Sam Neill.

I guess Echo Point was a platform for several actors' careers and was mainly just a way to get some exposure before becoming successful. I still loved it though, but it just didn't get the ratings Channel 10 wanted.
