Home and Away Kissed A Girl…Yeah, You and Everyone Else

You can just imagine the producers of Home and Away at their most recent brainstorming meeting (I imagine the Executive producer to be reminiscent of Murray from Flight of the Conchords).

“Right guys, it appears we’ve been a bit slow on the uptake, all the other soaps have been jumping on the girl-on-girl wagon and its time we followed suit.?

Err ok, but why?

Is the concept original? No. Sure to attract thousands of male viewers from pre-pubescent boys with raging hormones to the wrinkled old duffers who haven’t seen so much as an ankle of naked flesh since the eighties. Yes. So, is this just another cheap attempt to boost viewing figures?

Perhaps not.

Rather than going for a saucy blonde housewife and her equally buxom red-headed best friend Home and Away have picked a realistic albeit still stereotypical couple – a love affair between a policewoman and a trawler worker. Which poses the question – just who is the butch and who is the b*tch?
