It's Not Ground Breaking But It's Decent
31 May 2010 | by loopy_white-1See all my reviews

Okay, sure it's not an amazing drama and the acting can be a bit sketchy at times but you have to appreciate it for what it is. It's a low budget, New Zealand made, get it done quickly soap drama.

Despite the fact that at times they sway from character to character and some of the twists are a bit excessive, it can't be beaten.

There is nothing I would rather watch on a weekday evening at 7pm than Shortland Street simply because the drama is actually well written and entertaining to say the least. For the fact that it has such a low budget and that it has been running for over 15 years gives a sign of it's cultural significance within New Zealand. It's a short piece and it's plot is always interesting and easy to follow, so you could start to watch it at any stage in your life.

Don't knock it, even though it isn't the best - it's worth what it is.
