This Australian soap is not defined by a family (as Dallas' Ewings) but tellingly named after its site: an affluent residential stretch of the Gold Coast in Queensland, where people of different walks of life -the casting guarantees lots of eye candy on the beach, many actors being young and attractive- gyrate around the wealthy owners of villas and yachts. A major story line is the murder of tycoon Sonia Kingsley, who had even more enemies then the initial list of suspects, such as her ex, TV reporter Trey Devlin and various other family and business relations. However as the investigation creeps forward other events unfold and other characters and story-lines are interwoven, including the not so wealthy, e.g. Canadian Tim Browning who works as a lifeguard, and would-be-capitalists such as the young but enterprising Rick Carlyle.

Silly but greay
14 June 2002 | by all_saints4evaSee all my reviews

Ok, Well I was really young when the show went to year at first, and I can't imagine my mother allowing a 7 yr old to watch a show as raunchy as pacific drive can get at some stages (I don't think she really approves of me watching it now). But then i started watching it last year, g-coding it each day before i go to school, and putting it on the second i got in the door, orinally becase my favourite actress Libby Tanner was in it, but more so because I got addicted to this light entertainment after school. The storylines, especially certain ones, were so far-fetched it was good to have a laugh, before attacking the books. The show is corny but I love it. I cannot help it. and I know i shouldn't... but it has provided hours of entertainment for me, and all of my friends as I tell them the daily storylines, each weirder than the next. Pacific Drive is legendary!! It has great acting, despite the bizarre story's. My tribute to the show should be online some day soon, as I feel this show deserves some recognition..despite all the bad press. *Nikki* 16.
