Good Points
Easy to watch when you're having your tea.

Bad Points
Can be a bit boring with long drawn out predictable storylines.

General Comments
I believe Neighbours arrived on our shores in the mid-eighties, originally aired on a morning and a lunchtime. I think it was re-located to its more familiar tea-time slot because of its popularity and that kids were "bunking off" school to watch the programme. Although probably well past its peak in terms of viewing figures, the show continues to be broadcast Monday-Friday at 5.35pm and is suitable for the whole family. My favourite characters on Neighbours were/are Helen Daniels, "Big" Jim Robinson, Henry Ramsey, local Mechanic Tony Romeo, builder Doug Willis, Phillip Martin and Annalise Hartman. Of the current cast, I like "Stingray" Timmins. If you haven't seen it yet, it's probably been on too long for me to give a synopsis of what's happened so far but repeats can be found on UKTV Gold.

I have not watched Neighbours for a long time, I used to watch it all the time when I was younger. I think I simply grew out of the habit of tuning in. My all-time favorite character has to be that lovable Labrador Bouncer. He must have been owned and lived in just about every house in Ramsey street! I remember Mrs. Mangle and Mike locked in a custody battle for him. Lucy Robinson owned him, Joe Mangle owned him, Toby Mangle owned him, and so did Dorothy Burke. Hannah Martin also staked a claim for the lovable rogue. I can remember the episode when Bouncer had a dream he married a sheepdog named Rosie. Crazy
<br/>He had many storylines which envolved saving Madge and Skye from a fire, and almost getting knocked down, ironicaly by Madge. He also fathered a litter of puppies in Anson's Corner, he moved to the country with Doug and Pam Willis to be near to them. He left behind many happy memories of Ramsey Street, and the residents sorely missed him.
<br/>Six weeks after filming his final scenes on Neighbours, Bouncer died of cancer aged seven, he must have soldiered on right till the end. A true professional.

I never realised that Bouncer had so many owners. I always thought he was the property of old misery guts Mrs Mangel. I can now remember that bizarre scene when Bouncer was having a dream. Weird. You mention that Bouncer was the consummate professional and "soldiered on" despite his deteriorating health. I am inclined to believe that his "real-life" owner simply forced his "golden goose" to keep on working right up to the bitter end. Bouncer must have been a tremendous earner for him/her. I would've done exactly the same myself though.
