Family Affairs No More
18 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I took a glimpse at this soap last night on Channel 5. The last time i had watched this show was when it was interesting, when Pete Callan was wicked as the villain and Benjamin, a school boy had the affair with that teacher. Well, when i took a glance yesterday, i nearly cried. No, it wasn't the drama included, it was the lack of dialogue and how utterly dull this show is becoming. The script says it all, the conversations the characters have are similar to the ones i have to myself...pointless. It's just doesn't have the knack it had before, there was action, there was drama there was something there for me to watch but yesterday i had to suffer watching this. I only watched it because i wanted to know what was happening, plus i was bored out of my skull. And oh dear god how i regret spending half and hour watching this soap. Card-board characters i could make within 5 minutes, dialogue my brother of 6-years-old could write. Also, the situations does not interest me. For example, one of the characters i found yesterday is gay and his father is currently in hospital nearly dying. So of course before the program started they showed what happened on the previous episode, so i got a general idea of what this episode was going to be about. All the conversations between this character and his mother and all the other people in the show included, "How is your father,"..."He's still in hospital," next scene, "I don't know what to do about my father, " next scene, "Oh what am i going to do about my father," something along those lines. What was worse was the other story that was happening, a lady is currently selling her pub and her friends are not entirely happy about it. "I'm selling the pub, i've made my decision"..."There is nothing you can do about it i am selling the pub," next scene, "Nobody is going to stop me selling my pub," next scene, "The pub is in my name, so i can do what i like with it, i will sell the pub," and her friends, "Why are you selling the pub," next scene, "Sell the pub to someone else, " next scene, " i am angry about you selling the pub, " next scene, "Why are you selling the pub, what about your friends," Thats why i nearly cried, thats how bad it was. If only they could improve on the script maybe they might scrape some more viewers, but at this rate, they will see the light at the end of the tunnel...or in that case...a flop.
