User Reviews

Deals with real life, in a humourous way...
15 May 2003 | by fritchie83See all my reviews

Hollyoaks deals with the trials and tribulations that many teenegers/early twenty year olds do. Instead of simply concentrating on the boring stuff, like school or college, Hollyoaks adds a more interesting and fun way to telling the stories. Sub stories like murders, sexuality, family problems and pub life are shown to make the programme more realsitic to student life.

Hollyoaks is not noticed enough like other programmes, but it is definately much more funner!
