When did you last watch?

That’s the thing I used to love about Neighbours. Pure escapism and never took itself too seriously and yet still produced high quality drama.

I have watched all of the 2017 season, but probably hadn’t watched since 2003 - I know I stopped watching before Karl had his affair with Izzy.

It took a while to get back into it. The thing that made me want to watch again was Dee returning as that’s probably when I was last a regular viewer. I thought it was really clever that her and Toadie’s ‘reunion’ only featured characters from when she was first in it (aside from Sonia, whom I hate) - that’s what got me hooked again.

Neighbours and Home and Away are the only soaps I now watch.

Just amazing the way Rebekah Elmaloglou or Terese has changed since she was in Home and Away :o

I love Sonia. I’m not watching at the moment to be fair but she’s such a believable character, I can see why people wouldn’t like her though. Eve More is the best actress in the show (after Jackie Woodburne).

If Sonia was my friend and Neighbour, I’d be telling her she needs a good slap. I’d be telling Mark the same, but on different cheeks :lol:

Nah it’s all about Aaron. Though a Brennan threesome with Tyler too wouldn’t be a bad shout.

Tyler does nothing for me at all. He’s like Beiber - he has that lesbian look about him.

Any fans? This is totally my guilty pleasure. They swap partners more than any other soap, but it’s all fun and games.

Can’t wait to see what’s happening with Fake Dee this year. I’m still clinging onto the idea Real Dee was on the bench and at Toad and Sonia’s renewal.

I see Izzy returned on Monday night? Loved her back in that day, arguably one of the best soap land bitches ever.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if the fake Dee is pregnant from her encounter with Toady!
