Dreadful, reprehensible, rotten rubbish....
Against my better judgement, I've always been rather fond of Hollyoaks. I always liked Ben, especially Ben and Izzy, even if they did become a little bit of a formulaic comedy sideline for while, and I always really liked the Hunter family, and I liked Lisa. What I didn't like, or could even understand was Ben and Lisa. Ben had always been one of the older set, the grown-ups, and Lisa was one of the kids, and dated boys her age, so as soon as Lisa was legal, Hollyoaks sent her off on a vastly slutty weekend away at a hotel, and when she returned I suppose they expected everyone to view her as an adult and adult enough to go out with a man who'd just been married and had a baby. She wasn't though, she was a kid, so it seemed a bit...urgh. Let Loose just went to reinforce this feeling of urgh from the offset, and on top of that it was needlessly lurid (like most post watershed hollyoaks offerings) and very very weak storyline wise. I think I watched about four episodes of Lisa playing with the grown-ups before I had to switch off for fear of breaking my television.
In summary - AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
