Hollyoaks can get really rather addictive, but no matter how juicy the storyline you've been following is, there is no doubt that it will have a VERY anti-climatic conclusion and all the characters will return to normal within the next week and completely forget anything remotely traumatic ever happened to them.
The acting is dreadful, there is no real emotion, the dialogue is stilted and the accents are painful. There are one or two gems in among a bad, bad bunch which make the show bearable, but recently (end of 2011ish) the show has been attempting to impersonate skins, one of the key shots being a direct copy of the DVD cover of the first generation, which makes it just awkward. It's brought in a bunch of new characters, all of which have intoxicatingly overdone personalities.
There are also many cringe-worthy moments where the show attempts comedy, and fails.
The show gets a 3 out of 10 for being mildly entertaining at times, and for a few crazy story lines that did get me hooked (I'm ashamed to say.) However, the writing is terrible. The acting is terrible. The plots string you along and then completely disappoint you.
Just...don't watch it.
