Drama series about the women married to members of Earls Park football team. Ian gets offered a place on the first team, while his wife Donna tries to track down the son they gave up for adoption nine years ago. Glamour model Chardonnay Lane and resident heartthrob Kyle are looking forward to their wedding. Earls Park announce a new signing who is a threat to the team's current captain Jason and his scheming wife Tanya. Written by
More plot per episode than can be imagined. Higher cliffs to hang from, thicker glossier makeup, higher heels and hair, flasher cars, brighter clothes. Not much soccer, but you didn't tune in for that purpose presumably. As Tanya Turner Zoe Lucker found a role of enormous power and variety. She lights up the screen in every scene she's in, especially when Jase, both true partner and nemesis, was around. Dragging Joan Collins in for an episode or two was true to the genre but not to the show. You enjoy the gesture only for its trueness to type, not its product.
Addictive in a way most television could never be, sly but blatant and insane. Sorely sorely missed.
