Fantastic soap
28 January 2007 | by hsymonds-1See all my reviews

A great soap which is more 'true to life' than any English soap. The casting is 'spot-on' and the story lines are very up-to-date. It helps that the soap is recorded each day and is aired on TV that night usually so little details like newspapers and rugby matches etc are for the day shown if you see what I mean! My family and I watch using the subtitles but are learning Welsh. I think it's a shame that more people don't watch it because subtitles put them off, but if they watched just a couple of episodes they would be hooked. My children are teenagers and they love it. It appeals to all ages, and the fact that they are all doing well learning Welsh is a plus. We have watched this program for years and we will continue to do so.
