Heartbreak High was an Australian TV high school series that lasted from 1994 till 1999.

The difference with a more classic dramatic high school series was that here, nothing went OK after a few episodes, every sensible situation evolved generally to a cornelian conclusion. The guys generally hated each other, sometimes got even killed.

It must be said that Heartbreak High was set in a very trashy neigbourhood. Stories involved incest, rapes, teen pregnancy, prison dropouts, ethnic community clashes, hate crimes and more. This gave a very dynamic storyline, which resulted in most characters only lasting a few episodes. Few were those who lasted more than two years.
