I really did used to love the show. I'd be there every Tuesday and Thursday ready to watch it...but that was back in the day lol.
I remember the old characters like Ben, Ollie, Harry, Cher, Karen, Flora, Sita and Brigid. The show was great then..but now it's just stupid, sorry and all. I just really think it is. I don't see the point of some of the characters and the acting is truly awful. I think it's good that it deals with teenage issues - but that Stumpy guy is a total idiot...and his friend...dunno his name but he's an idiot too lol. I think the acting quality has decreased recently and the characters are all a bit far-fetched which makes the stories un-convincing.
I just don't see the point of the characters...or their names. We used to have characters with proper names and more believable issues...now it's just a joke - Gadget, Spud? What?
I think it lost it's appeal around the time when Ben left, maybe a little bit before. I enjoyed S9 - 13/14 and only really watched it after that because Ben was in it...then he left and the show went downhill fast.
Sorry...can't stand the show anymore. I wont hesitate to switch it over if I catch my younger brother and sister watching it. I gave it a rating of 7 because it used to be a really decent show...if I was to rate it now it'd probably get a 1.
