Advantages: loads of storylines
Disadvantages: a bit OTT
Neighbours has been going for years and years, and over those years it has bought us deaths and births, marriages and divorces but it has never failed to keep us glued to our screens. A lot of the characters like Lou and Harold have been there for a very long time and others like the Scully's have only been there a while. But whether they are old or young they have still made an impact on the Australian soap. The biggest thing about Neighbours is it's fantastic storylines, although they can be over the top, they make it what it is and it is these storys that attract the viewers. I love watching neighbours and in some ways it is a funny soap, but in others it makes us sad and angry. I have been watching it about 5 years and over those years I have seen many characters come and go, but my favourite has to be Harold, he must be the funniest man on TV. Harold has been there since the beginning and he has definately made the show what it is. His trumpet traumas keep us loving him.
There have been a lot of storylines on Neighbours, some of my favourite ones are below.
Madge and Harold;
This couple have certainly had their fair share of troubles. When Harold and Madge went to the sea a long time ago Harold fell in the water and drowned. This devistated Madge and she was leftheart broken. Then it turned out that Harold was alive but he had suffered from Amnesia and forgotton who he was. Then they were reunited and got back together again. They were getting on fine but then a few years after their reuniting Madge was diagnosed with cancer and there was no cure for it. So, a couple of months ago she died surrounded by her friends and family. Harold is still getting over it.
The Motorbike Crash;
Last year Stephanie Scully and Libby Kennedy were on their way home from a trip on Steph's bike. But they hit a car and crashed. It put them both in hospital. Steph escaped with a few broken bones, but Libby was left in a life threatening posi
tion. When she finally began to recover she was told that because her insides had been messed up so much during the various operations she had, she could never have children. This was devistating for Libby and she was so upset she called off her wedding to Drew because she thought she couldn't give him what he wanted.
Those are only two storylines, but big ones. Neighbours is a great soap, it is one of the best Australian ones around. I love watching it and it is great fun. some of the storylines are a bit over the top but that's what makes Neighbours, Neighbours. Have a watch and see what you think.
