CayleeLee's review of Hollyoaks

“Unrealistic storylines”

★★☆☆☆

written by CayleeLee on 18/02/2024

Hollyoaks lost its way a long time ago and unfortunately has done nothing about it.
Being a soap opera, storyline is paramount. Hollyoaks storylines are getting more and more implausible. Each time implausibly enters the viewer’s mind - they are reminded of the last one. Too many, and one starts to question why they watch Hollyoaks.
I have watched Hollyoaks from the beginning and thus continued during dire storylines, but enough is enough.
Excellent storylines do not need sensationalism and yet that’s all Hollyoaks seem to do.

0.2 to 0.3% of children are born deaf - this is 1 in 400. one character in Hollyoaks is represented as deaf since birth and one became deaf during a car accident. Is this proportional? Have there been 400 child actors in Hollyoaks since its inception in 1995?

3% of young people (To 45 years of age) identify as queer, there have been at least 32 characters since the first homosexual character. Does this represent the U.K. demography? Have there been over 1000 young actors in Hollyoaks since 1995?

0.5% of the U.K. population identify as trans. 4 Characters in Hollyoaks have identified as trans - is that representational? Have there been 800 actors since 1995?
Currently 2 characters are trans, are there currently 400 charters in Hollyoaks to make the figure of 2 representative?

1.5% of over 16 year olds identify as bisexual. There have been at least 17 Bisexual characters since the first bisexual character in 2007. Have there been over 1100 over 16 year old characters in Hollyoaks since 1995 to warrant the 17 being representative of the public?

Are we supposed to believe the village of Hollyoaks somehow has an inordinate number of trans, homo or bisexual characters?

I don’t believe the script writers should have sensationalised the storylines in this disproportionate manner.
