Sophie Jo Wasson,
A weekly drama serial telling the lives of the people who live in the Wicklow village of Glenroe. The series, which started in 1983, quickly shot to the top of the Irish TV charts, and remained there until the show ended in 2001.
Fair City used to be good, but in recent times it really has went down hill. Issues like clerical sex abuse, brother/sister incest, drugs, suicide and teenage drinking have been brought in, just for the sake of it. Also the stories are becoming far too sensational, with another recent one involving the school principal's girlfirend having an affair with a student, who is dating her daughter.
This is a total change for the character, who originally was really straight laced and strict
Another thing that really annoys me is the fact that characters can just disappear for months on end. One of the characters, Stephen, has been missing for at least three or four months now. Maybe even since before Christmas! Storylines just concentrate on a group of characters for maybe a week or two, until its all changed and we are onto another group of characters. There's no real continuity.
Unless it gets a major overhaul, Fair City could be axed despite still being highly rated it just isn't the show it once was.
