Awful yet addictive...
30 March 2005 | by LivingMysterySee all my reviews

Hollyoaks is many things. One thing that it isn't though, is well acted out. It has one of the poorest collections of actors/actresses I have ever witnessed on TV. There are a few which are satisfactory, but overall it's terrible. They cast the actors purely on looks, a lot of the cast were models prior to being on Hollyoaks. And I must say the writers seem absolutely clueless, as most of the story lines seem to be totally unoriginal and cliché...

On the other hand, there is a certain spark to the show which makes you enjoy watching it, and carry on watching it. There are a few lovable characters, and a few which you hate so much that you watch the show again just to laugh or cringe at. There's the adictive-ness that I think you will always find in soaps, which is why I must recommend anyone who hasn't started watching this to never start watching this, as you will too become hooked to a simply awful show.
