Repedative, weak actors, slow, new actors killed it.

The story-lines are repetitive, which is par for the course with any soap opera (and I hate them all).

And stalkers, car accidents, switched at birth story lines and the like are entertaining.

The show just keeps recycling boring story lines.

And the directing is getting more art-house which just looks pretentious for a soap.

Overall, this show has definitely strengthened over the years and always manages to evoke a mixture of emotions through its suspenseful, exciting, tragic and blissful stories.

But it is such a great show, The stroy lines keep you on the edge of your seat and you always have your favouite love triangle you love to follow-and by the end of it you have totally changed your mind=d about who you want to end up with who.

They're all absolutely dull and are portrayed with abysmal performances from the cast.

Absolutely Unbearable .

have they realized they had sex with their brothers and sister or ppl close to their bro's and sisters and they still go on in life like nothing happened and when they find out its goes on as a 4 week drama.

When compared with British soaps it's more light-hearted, funny and entertaining to watch.

Their characters are not real but is really realistic to life in Australia: Divorce, affairs, children, unexpected pregnancies, runaway kids,abusive families, love, loss, honour, and heroism.

This, combined with the stereotypical representation, make the show seem more like Liberal Party propaganda than an actual drama.

Every character is written in exactly the same, incredibly boring manner and it's hard to differentiate between the characters at times because of this.

A light-hearted but entertaining show .

It is wonderful how a show can provide entertaining Australian drama at the same time as being an avenue for aspiring actors and actresses to further their skills and create more opportunities.

repetitive repetitive repetitive .

They have teenage characters but only give them boring annoying primary school issues.

It wasn't filled with murders, gangs, annoying people complaining about minuscule problems or boring comical relief.

But its silly stories and funny cast are very entertaining!

Some call it predictable, some call it boring...

That felt realistic and was actually enjoyable.

The story lines used to be good, really good now it's just unrealistic, repetitive and just boring.

Because it's predictable, entertaining and familiar, and there's nothing else on at 7 weeknights.

Wildly unrealistic, granted, but entertaining.

Inane, trivial, intellectually-resistant, irritating, amateurish, embarrassing, one-dimensional, loopy, awesomely dumb, neighbor-bashing and cerebrally withering, suburban banality!

It's been a success and now it's getting kinda boring.

I can fill anyone in on any questions they may have about the show or story lines..I live in Ireland which means our show is several months behind, so I frequently take a sneaky peek onto the website to get a preview when the story lines are so exciting that I cant wait!!

Successful Australian drama, entertaining for audiences here and overseas, opportunistic for aspiring actors.

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I LOVE Home and Away, its an excellent show and worth watching every episode.
