Underrated when compared to other Soaps
25 March 2007 | by lucky_star_1See all my reviews

Currently, Hollyoaks is my favourite Soap. It's the one I never miss during weekdays In fact, it's been my favourite for quite a few years now, given that Eastenders has certainly suffered a great 21st century downfall The viewers' ratings for this Soap always suffer in comparison to the universally watched Soaps (Eastenders, Coronation St), much to do with the fact that Channel 4 suffers in comparison to BBC1 and ITV Nevertheless, I would say it is the most realistic of all the Soaps, and doesn't overstretch the boundaries in storytelling. In fact it is more in touch with human nature than all the other soaps, relating its plots to real teenage problems and even parental problems Moreover, it doesn't need to bring a character back from the dead to boost ratings; and most of the families are central to the main plots so you become familiar with them My current favourite characters are Louise, Warren, Carmel, Tony, John-Paul and Jacqui, all of whom are very much involved in the current gripping episodes I would recommend this Soap to both genders and to people in their teens and above, however the Late Night Specials include more adulterated content
