A great soap!
25 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Echo Beach is a totally original idea for a soap. I find it quite addictive.

It is a soap within a soap connecting with Moving Wallpaper, the things said in moving wallpaper appear in the soap, so you see the reason for everything that happens. I feel this is a great attempt as a soap as it appeals to a young and old audience.

It is much edgier than your Eastenders and Corination Street. I will be a loyal fan of this show for a long long time.

There is plenty of eye-candy in the soap. It has a a great soundtrack with new music. I think this will be a great soap.
