This Dallas-type series is about two competing Dutch families, Noordermeer and De Graaf, running ancestral firms in the Rotterdam shipbuilding business, each with numerous internal tensions, especially between the generations, as some are business-prone, others adverse, some ruthless, some soft or moralistic, but also with their staff, often meeting each-other in both ruthless commercial rivalry and personal relationships, again also with staff and third parties (clients, competitors, suppliers...), producing an intricate web of sub-plots, some sex, some crime etcetera.

overbudgetted soap
16 April 2001 | by jbindy2See all my reviews

1st season was ok, it had a kind of "new" feel to it, 2 shipbuilding families, one succesfull the other on the verge of collapse. in the cliffhanger of the 1st season the show took a radical and strange turn for the worse. Sam, the daughter of the de Graaf family, joined the navy and stole a machinegun and shot the livingroom up.

From then on I occasionally watched a few minutes of the later seasons, but it has turned so ridiculous that I stopped watching.

Too bad, this show could've been something different to all the bad soaps being produced..
