Easy to watch when you're having your tea.
Can be a bit boring with long drawn out predictable storylines.
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.
