Like Home & Away, but more pathetic.
9 December 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

It is very much like Home & Away in the sets (majority is in a seaside diner) and acting performance. The actors are all fairly attractive, as well.

It is unlike Home & Away that it is so dull, the acting makes all the sentences the exact same (if they reveal a killer, its the same as tone as if they talked about going to sleep the night before). The cameras they use always have a fuzzy white wash on it, it makes the entire show seem so low quality.

The cinematography is pathetic. It's like they pulled it out of the rulebook, but didn't quite understand. It's like everything is filmed with a $200 Mini DV camera on a tripod. The slight pans are just stupid and a waste of time. The audio is very bland and boring. It honestly looks like it was shot with something much worse then a cheap Mini DV camera.

It tries to go further then Home & Away with more camera angles (but definitely not better), a more ambitious story and a more freelance look (going to more locations). It doesn't pass, though. Everything it tries it pretty much crumbles.

The "year 12 student" looks like he's 25. The story might indeed be interesting, but it's certainly not shown.

Technically this show is pathetic, it's so bad I can't continue to watch anymore. The tone is horrible. If my friends made this movie, I would tell them it's horrible. It's that bad.

This isn't even cut out for YouTube. I have definitely seen better stuff on YouTube.
