Trivia

The working title of the show was The Shortland Street Project, named after its planned filming location in the Television New Zealand-owned studios at 74 Shortland Street in downtown Auckland. The studios however were too small to fit all the sets required and production was subsequently moved to a warehouse in the suburb of Browns Bay, but the name stuck and was truncated to simply Shortland Street.

Slowly Devolving
25 May 2000 | by Rosie-9See all my reviews

In it's original form, "Shortland Street" had a certain naive charm. It was cheesy, it was bad, but it was a soap opera, it was filmed locally (about two minutes from my house, to be exact) and we were young so we forgave it's flaws.

Over the eight years it's been on, however, there's been a definite drop in quality. The early writers of "Shortland Street" knew it was drivel, so nothing was taken very seriously. Minnie's devotion to American soap "Tides of the Heart" was an opportunity for SS to poke fun at itself. Unfortunately, the self-depreciative remarks have gone, as have the enjoyably silly story lines. Current writers seem to believe they're writing Montana Sunday Theatre...only without the talent. Consequently, storylines are now delivered in deadly ernest, and those over the age (and IQ) of 15 are beginning to turn off.
