I don't know whether I've outgrown neighbours or the current cast is just crap. The Karl Kennedy actor simply can't act, the Scullys will never be the Robinsons and I hate Boyd and his annoying stereotype of a family.
Neighbours lost its edge around the 1996 season, when Stanley Walsh took over as Executive Producer. He left last year and a new producer has started to improve things. He's bringing back links to the 80s and older characters such as Sky, Jamie Clark, Des and David Bishop. The drama lately has been so much better.

I don't think you've outgrown Neighbours. I think Neighbours has outgrown itself. The actors in Neighbours don't seem to stay long as long anymore. Most of them stay about 2 years and go on to other things. There's a lack of continuity and the 80s episodes had a lot of that. Also, the acting isn't as good as they seem to take on people new to the acting world. Neighbours has become more of a training ground for new actors. They don't seem about the show's quality as much as they used too.

why do you think all british soaps are rubbish and what makes the australian/american ones better?
British soaps have a repetitive, ongoing storyline which often takes a lot of time and patience to understand. Also you often have to watch several episodes consecutively in order to have an idea of what is happening. Also, many of the storylines are so absurd that its just ridiculous. I mean take Eastenders, in that one tiny square, there has been rape, incest, divorce. child abuse, murder, drug trafficking, drug taking, etc etc etc...the list is endless which makes it just so annoying and very difficult to believe.

With Neighbours, all you have to do is watch and you can instantly know what is happening. It is very very light-hearted and easy to follow. Although some storylines are rubbish, its this quality which makes it so interesting, as the audience does not need to have much input. Generally its fantastic.

heres a fact for ya when i was in aussie right stuart (real name BLAIR) came second in big brother aussie....thats how he got his part in the show!! x
Fact 2 - michelle in neighbours is an aspiring artist. she sucks
fact 3 - Susan kennedy's actress is a lesbian. She dated the woman who played Ruth.
Fact 4 - The libby actress and karl actor dated lol
Fact 5 - Ian smith aka Harold is suprisingly rude in real life. In fact its fair to say hes more alike to stoke harold. A famous quote from him was at a book signing. Some teenager shouted out 'why are you so fat?' and he replied with 'because your mum gives me a cookie every time i f*ck her'

I've heard about Fact 3 and Fact 5 before and I think they're true. I haven't heard about the others though.

There's a society at my brother's Uni called 'ARSE' - the 'Association of Ramsey Street Enthusiasts'. Neighbours is top student TV I personally prefer Diagnosis Murder though.

Wow....

Neighbours IS really good at the moment, especially since it went really bad about two months ago (it was just really boring).

i watch it almost every day. wasnt there a story on recently about that girl doing photo shoots for that seedy looking dude who's like over TWICE HER AGE? It seems to give out the message that he's a bit perverted looking at her on the internet. but still he's TWICE HER AGE and maybe more than that.

Harold was hungover, well funny! Lou and Trixie left and the Sculley's were making a video to get on that home improvement show.

I haven't seen todays yet, I think we should make a rule, no discussing the days episode until after 6 o'clock to give everyone a chance to watch!

was looking at the Austrailian section of the Neighbours website, and Lou and Susan kiss, how wrong!

I'm really not. go to neighbours.com and click on the Austrailian updates, thats where I read it. Its so wrong. Apparently they feel bad about it after, but it'll be too late then, I'll already be scarred for life!
