Addictive but silly
In our house we nicknamed this "the trash" because it was such a transparently unrealistic soap, but we still videoed it every night. A lot of the characters appear in more recent stuff, especially Peter Phelps aka John who as in Stingers Undercover, Water Rats and Ned Kelly. Frankly the idea of John and Angela being twins was implausible to begin with - they didn't look the slightest bit alike. The show had some all time classic villains though - obviously Pat the rat but also Wayne. One thing that also sticks in my mind is that everyone in the Hamilton house appears to be raving alcoholics - there was hardly a scene where they weren't drinking whiskey. Wouldlike to see a rerun one day just for old times sake, but they don't seem to show it anymore.
