My love/hate affair with this crappy soap
1 July 2007 | by Ryu_DarkwoodSee all my reviews

The oldest Dutch soap on television. Like its genre demands, it is a mix of cheap sets, worthless actors, plot lines that don't make any sense and dialog's that seems to be written by a 5-year old schoolboy. You can safely conclude that it's a burning pile of crap. But hey, who cares about that, it's a soap and therefore its viewers just don't ask for some quality in it.

I personally have a hate/love affair with this show. I can't watch it without complaining about everything that is bad. But at the other hand, growing up with my mother and sister, I watched it almost everyday from my 12th till my 16th. When I started to live on my own I noticed that fore some nostalgic reason I kept watching it. Just because it came after the news of half past seven and just before movies start at half past eight.

Nowadays I just see 1 or 2 episodes a month with my mother and that is enough to stay up to date on the ''exciting'' story lines that this show has to offer.
