    Okay wel i was planning on starting this a while back but didn't get round to it.

    Anyhow just to keep say one thread to talk about the show - favourite charachters, storylines, moments etc et...

    Anyhow just a general discussion about it - whatever say old, current whenever - hopefully it'll start up and enough people will reply to keep itgoing.

    Fave character: Jim Robinson!!!! (Alan Dale)

    Why?
    I dunno. I've just always thought there was something funny and great about him. Maybe it's the shape of his head. Maybe it's the fact that he didn't seem like your average soap star and more like a regular guy. Maybe it's the fact that every time he fell over, he always fell into the recovery position!

    In my uni, I started an "Alan Dale Appreciation Society". I put up posters all over campus to advertise a society meeting, it had a nice big picture of Alan wearing a pink shirt. Sadly, no one turned up for the meeting. It's so ironic that Alan (an actor whose career was well and truly over at the time) would go on to make it big in America.

    Sexiest female: Anne!!!! (Brooke Satchwell)

    Why?
    Are you blind? She's gorgeous! By far the fittest girl Neighbours has ever seen. Nobody else has even come close. Libby and Kerry fight for distant 2nd place.

    Sexiest male: I will say Drew or Joel, because that's who all the girls seem to fancy.

    Favourite story: I think Harold falling off some rocks and turning up about 10 years later with memory loss has to be the maddest thing in soap history. Oh, apart from Dallas, where an entire season was all a dream and Bobby came back to life.

    Favourite moment: er... When Todd died.

    Favourite theme tune: The original. Why do they have to keep messing with it!?

    Biggest mystery: I heard that in Australia, Neighbours doesn't air over the Christmas holidays. But here in the UK it airs continuously. So you'd think over the years we would have caught up with the latest episodes by now. But we never seem to!

    The reason why it doesn't air over the Xmas holidays here GD is cos the ratings season has finished here for the year and they're making new episodes for the next year....normally Neighbours comes back about mid-late January here, so that's when the new season begins....and don't forget, it's our summer here too at the time
    Let's embrace the point of no return.

    (This was a good idea)

    Fave characters: Madge 'n' Harold, Cody, Sarah, Helen, Hannah, Todd, Jim, Joe, Brad

    Fave current characters: Valda, Karl and Susan, Connor, Toadie, Libby, Lou, Taj

    Sexiest Female: Analise, (her sister, Jo I think), Dee, Amy

    Sexiest Male: Lou, Taj, Malcolm, Harold, Brad

    Fave Storylines: Harold being washed into the sea and returning with memory loss. Helen dying (I bunked off school to see that)...The 'affair', Joe's wife being killed. Cody dying...Ben having an accident and being unable to walk. Susan's memory loss...the millenium edition where Lousie was trapped in the Scullys burning house. Cheryl being hit by a car and dying.

    That doesn't answer my question: if Neighbours airs 11 months a year in Australia, but 12 months a year here, then we should be slowly catching up with Australia. But we never do. Cos if we did then we would have to wait a month over Christmas, too.

    We are catching up Dizzy, we're only 4-6 weeks behind Oz now. We got as close as 3 weeks behind, and then they took it off while Wimbledon was on.

    Neighbours isn't shown over Christmas here and it is also taken off for events like Wimbledon and Easter - which is about 2 weeks each time plus it isn't on in Bank Holidays....though it is a mystery to me also.

    This is such a great idea for a topic! Suprised it hasnt already been done!

    Favourite Characters - Dee, Toadie's Mum, Afro Harold, Connor, Steph

    Worst Characters - Lynn's Dad, Summer, Valda, Darcy (and that old woman he was going out with), and Harold's unlikely shoplifter/gambler buddy, the priest woman

    Sexiest Females - Lance's Girlf, Natalie Imbruglia, Nina, Anne, Tess

    Favourite Storylines - The whole recent wedding goings-on, Cheryl dying (remember they kept changing her character? strange)

    Favourite Family - The Skullies

    Favourite Pet - Billy's Sheep! Lol

    Does anybody else agree there should be a Neighbours Omnibus at the end of the week?

    The upcoming Steph storyline is great, I read it on the net, and twoz confirmed by the Australian exchange teacher weve got in our school at the moment. Neighbours rulez.[/b]

    Oh my God, Neighbours is offically the best program ever ! I was thinking about making a thread a while ago, so nice to see it's finally been done!

    Fave characters:
    (Afro) Harold , and the legend that is Valda ! And Cheryl when she was around actually!

    Least favourite current characters: Hannah and Michelle :x !

    Sexiest Female: Analise, Flick, Dee, Anne and Steph

    Sexiest Male: Jack , Tad, Taj and Paul

    Fave storyline: Afro Harold , Susan and her memory loss, Harold and his memory loss ... and Cheryl's death!... Apparently Valda has a really big storyline this Crimbo though, which should eclipse all Neighbours storylines ever !

    Hey, talking of famous portraits, how about that awful one of Mrs Mangell that hung on her wall for years. I've forgotten who painted it, now. Anyone remember?

    I'm pretty sure it was Helen Daniels, and although Nell didnt like it at first, Helen convinced her of the artistic merit of it.

    I just remembered how much of a fantastic character Marlene was ! It was aaages ago that she was around though, but he was the Valda of her time

    I can't remember how she left though... didn't she migrate to Graceland - the home of Elvis or summat :-? ?
