Neighbours, everybody needs good Neighbours
Member Name: sttb1997
Advantages: Plenty of action
Disadvantages: Bit silly at times!
I still remember the first ever episode of Neighbours with Charlene climbing in through Madge's front room window, and Scott wrestling her to the ground....that was back in 1988 when I was just 7 years old and I must admit I have hardly missed an episode since!
Neighbours is an Austrlian soap set on Ramsey Street, a fictious street with only a handful of houses. The soap centres around a few main characters that change quite frequently.
Ramsey Street must be the most unlucky place to live (other than Summer Bay of course!). Since the start of the show they have had burglaries, fires, car accidents, murders, suicides, abortions, plane crashes, hit and runs, amazing births....the hospital plays a huge part in the soap and there is always a doctor on the street who, as it happens, deals with most injuries/births/deaths on the street. Currently this is Dr Karl Kennedy.
There is always someone arriving or leaving Ramsey Street, and there are always amazing storylines with cliffhangers galore.
I can only remember one point in the last 20 years when I haven't watched Neighbours and that wasn't through choice - that was before the time of Sky Plus and when I was working and going to college. Now I am a stay at home mum I must admit I am addicted again. It is not the most intellectually stimulating show on the plant but it is good entertainment.
I would definitely recommend watching Neighbours but be warned, you get hooked. It shows on Channel 5 twice daily.
Summary: Great show to kill 20 minutes of your time - very addictive
