Steph is so annoying
this whole Steph and Toady story is a joke

Kill her off

Donna is annoying as well

We need EVIL Paul back

I will miss Steph, but she's never been a HUGE favourite of mine so I'm distraught about her decisions, whereas I'm still in mourning over James Sorensen leaving - which I can't see myself EVER getting over. :cry: :cry:

I just love this show, I really do obsess over Neighbours :o

I'm sure there must have been at least one ... but I can't think of any.

I love seeing Steph and Toadie trying to cover their tracks ... it's probably the only decent ongoing storyline.

The new Declan is just .. blah. He doesn't hold a candle to the old one; I just can't watch him without wanting to punch the TV.

I just can't even express how depressed I am watching the new Declan. I'm not just biased towards James Sorensen (who is just incredible in every aspect) but the new Declan doesn't even come close to 1% of James' magic of playing Declan.

I hope it's just the actor's first few weeks that are this wooden and bland, and that he loosens up and actually acts well!

The new Declan makes me want to saliva vomit - I just think of him as a seperate character. He doesn't have any chemistry with Rebecca. Granted, James and Jane's chemistry was probably the best I've ever seen in soap. But there's nothing between NuDeclan.

Seph's dug herself into a big sh*t-filled hole, I wonder how she's gonna get out.

The Steph and Toadie story just keeps getting more intesne and complicated as it goes on! It's taking a while, but when it all erupts I'm sure it'll be great. I have no idea how they're going to reveal the secret though... Lyn blabbing? Steph and Toadie being overheard? Toadie or Steph having enough and needing to reveal the truth!? Oh, the possibilities!

And yess the New Declan is difficult to get used to, but James was just the perfect MAN in the entire world, so no one can really compete with perfect. He has a nice smile though...

He has an annoyingly monotonous voice. Steph and Toadie's secret is out at Australian pace .. just two months left for us then.

I've missed a few weeks of Neighbours but just caught up today. Great acting from everyone (aside from the kid who plays Ben) it's been a very intense week.

I'm really liking the new group of teens (Summer, Andrew, Chris, Natasha) - I find them much more interesting than Ringo and that lot.

I just love love love Neighbours so much. I actually can't believe I don't post in here as much as I should, because I'm just obsessed with the show haha.

I'm moving to Germany to 2 weeks so is there any way that I keep up with the UK broadcoast online at all?
If not, my parents are going to have to record the omnibus every week and when I come home it'll be non-stop Neighbours catch-up. :lol:

The only place I can think of is Demand Five ... but I'm not sure if that will work abroad though.

I haven't watched for a few months, the last time I watched it regularly was at Paul & Rebecca's wedding I think?

Basically, I stopped watching it because it had got shit. Which was a shame, because when I first started watching (the tail end of the Timmins' tenure) it was amazing! Then from the revamp onwards it got progressivly worse, boring but at the same time really unrealistic. The highlight of the past year was watching Didge's death. She was the worst soap character of all time.

So yeah, has it improved any? I would love to get back into it, it used to be like a religion for me :o :lol:

One thing that I still occasionally tune in for:

I think it did get pretty sh*t at one point but it's definitely on its way up. There's much less teen-focus and the storylines have a lot more substance.

This week celebrates Neighbours' 6000th episode with a 'Whodunnit?' storyline involving ... Paul being pushed off Lassiter's rooftop!

Some general upcoming spoilers: Steph hits Ringo with her bike and he dies. It's assumed Steph goes to jail as she's leaving the show. Other characters due to depart in the next few months include: Donna, Rebecca, Declan and Zeke. Seems we're losing soem BIG characters. Neighbours will soon become unrecognisable.

Totally agree with that, she even trumps the long-serving cast members in times of quality of acting.
