Well-written drama: Better than Heartbreak High!
Matthew Burgess from Sydney, Austrlia
23 November 2001
It was an excellant idea: Six teenages are given the chance to fufill
dreams, when they each recieve a large sum of money for a head start in
their careers. Unfortunately, the first few episodes were boring and
Then it finally clicked.
It become quite clever and witty, and very original. They introduced new,
exciting characters but still didn't get the number of viewers they wanted
and it was cancelled. There are now two more episodes left before it ends.
It's a pity that they didn't get another season.
It was so much more enjoyable and original than Heartbreak High, it's
predessor, yet still it fails to get enough veiwers. Heartbreak High used
the same 90210 storylines and then repeated then (how many times have we
seem the student-teacher relationship storyline?!), yet when something
comes along, no-one wants to watch it.
The cast are very talented, especially Freya Stafford and Megan Dorman who
play Basia Lem and Katherine Ingram. Both are very talented, and should
some more work soon. (I can't wait for Queen of the Damned, a movie coming
out with Dorman)
Charlie Clausen, Aaron, and Meroani Vuki, Jade, are very likable and quite
good actors too, though not as talented as Freya or Megan.
All the other actors, do not stand out as much as the other, but are
enjoyable to watch. The onl bad actors I felt where the ones that left
earlier on: Nadia Townsend (Claire) and Gareth Yuen (Loc).
Quick! There are only two episodes left of this drama, so tune in on
6.10 pm on ABC or Monday 7.30 pm Fox 8, which has repeats.
I'm sure you'll find it as enjoyable as I do.
