Advantages: loads of great storylines, excellent characters
Disadvantages: sometimes boring
Over a year ago Home and Away was taken from ITV and now, after a long wait, it is back but this time on Channel 5. Last year Home and Away was on ITV, we had great storylines such as Gypsy's kidnapping. Now it is back and as big as ever. A few weeks ago on the sunday before it came back to our screens, channel 5 recapped all that had been going on the previous year. Then on the monday it picked up where it left off and the storys such as Sally's wedding and Peta and Edward continued to keep us glued to the screens. A better thing is that there is an omnibus of all the shows in the week on the Saturday and the episode is repeated the next dat at lunchtime. So you get threechances to watch each episode.
Home and Away has been going for a long time and during that time the opening to the show has changed quite a lot of times but the music has stayed the same. Home and Away isa very Australian soap so when you're wathing it you feel like your actually in Australia.
Like all other soaps Home and Away has some dramatic storylines. Some of the best have been in the last few years. Dramatic storylines are what makes Home and Away, it keeps you watching the show and you then become hooked. Some of the best storylines are below.
When Gypsy Nash starts dating a man who her father, Joel, sent to jail a long time ago, you know something is bound to go wrong. That is exactly what happens, he kidnapped her and held her hostage in an old shed for over six weeks. He hardly feeds her and she gets very scared. Then eventually her father and the police figure out where she is and they go and rescue her. Robert (the kidnapper) then goes back to the Nash household and burns it down nearly killing them. Eventually he is caught and arrested.
This isn’t a really big drama but it is a good storyline. After Sally goes travelling she comes back with a guy called Kieran. They decid
e to get married and Sally is over the moon. She gets her dress and is all excited, but meanwhile Kieran is hitting on Gypsy. Then at the wedding they are half way through saying their vows when Gypsy stands up and shouts No! She ends up cancelling the wedding and Sally is left distraught.
Those are only two of the many storylines Home and Away has brought us over the years. From kidnappings to weddings home and away is certainly full of surprises. This is a great soap and I enjoy watching it. Although it can be a bit boring sometimes it is still a great soap.
