Brilliant...most of the time
7 July 2003 | by rock_your_soulSee all my reviews

Heartbreak High is one of my favourite tv shows. I used to love watching it after school on tuesdays? on the BBC. They used to show it on the school holidays too, but this year it aint on :( anyway.....hh was a great show when it started. The grittyness of it was brilliant but it wasnt overplayed. Each character was given an equal time in the spotlight. The story of Nick and Jody was amazingly portrayed. But things started to change when the heartley high kids had to move to another school. Sure there were still many great storylines and characters at that time, like ryan, anita, sarah, nikki etc, but somewhere along the line it seemed to loose its way. By the final series it was still good, but it had seemed to have lost its edge. That was the main selling point about heartbreak high, it was telling tough stories about un-perfect kids, sure they all looked good, but all of them did have their demons, and thats what made it so appealing. It just seemed by the end series it was time to finish. I have so many favourite characters from the show, but my all-time favourites have to be mai, anita, katarina, ryan, nikki, drazic, con, mel, danny, jody, d'espo, nick.....ok thats nearly all of them, what can i say, i love the show!
