A question I've been dying to ask....

do any Aussies here actually watch Neighbours?

....or does anyone in the world watch it, apart from me!

(A bit of a break from tennis discussion!!).

Re: A question I've been dying to ask....

Yeah I watch it. A lot
Izzy is really growing on me now
Home and Away though... it got worse as I grew up. At least neighbours is kind of closer to reality. I don't know what kind of dumbass girl (Dani Sutherland) walks around a beach in a miniskirt and knee high leather boots

Re: A question I've been dying to ask....

Hmmm I worked with Izzy on a charity event at the start of the year so I must admit, I have been watching it a lot more than I used to. Don't watch Home and Away, that show has just gone to crap. Yeaaahhhh Neighbours. Even still, I don't like it that much.


GOOD LUCK

Re: A question I've been dying to ask....

The only thing worse then American soaps is Australian soaps, at least with American ones you can laugh at absurd storylines and the "stare" prior to every commercial break.

Re: A question I've been dying to ask....

Ah jezebel, you come up with the best threads, don't you?

Personally, having experienced all three, I can also add to Wyvern's point that the only thing worse than Australian soaps is British ones. Neighbours at least attempts to be both optimistic and realistic in tone (American soaps are lacking in the latter, and British soaps are lacking in both), although the constant use of the same half a dozen soundtracks over the last decade or so does get a bit wearing. I stopped watching it in the last couple of years... when Ms. Goodrem first made her appearance on the show, I had little idea that in a short space of time she would be known as a) a cancer sufferer, b) a chart-topping singer and c) most importantly of all, the Scud's most enduring squeeze. You don't think one of the younger male members of the cast is going to start dating Aussie Kim while she's on the rebound from Lleyton, do you?

I thought not...

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.
