Okay so it's hardly Dallas but don't dismiss it because it's Scottish and you've 'heard' its mince. It's actually a very good watch, with story lines just as credible as other soaps shown through the Uk. With story lines such as explosions, drug addictions, the comeuppance of a notorious gangster involving a stabbing, hostage situation and a confrontation at the docks - to name but a few (see link below for screen caps) http://www.bbc.co.uk/Scotland/TV/rivercity/gallery/docks/index.shtml You feel for the characters as much as you would in any other soap, its not only dramatic it's funny some of the one liners are fantastic and have you in stitches.
A weak starter but has really come into it's own over the last few years receiving all most as many ratings as the national soaps on occasion.
Don't listen to people who say it's rubbish and don't just take my word for it, watch it - see for yourself - you won't regret it.
