The one hundred and fifty-third TV show: #366 Neighbours

Here's another soap - I'm trying to get through them a bit - but rather than the British ones I've mostly seen so far, this is an Australian series. It's a show that skews young - a lot of it seems to revolve around showing off a bunch of hot young people and the problems they get into, while mostly living the sort of middle class lifestyle that leads to and almost requires more complex storylines - amnesia from boiler explosions, charity sales to cover debts while pretending it's for underprivileged kids... I'll be honest, I found it hard to connect, even more than the other soaps I've covered here. Beyond that, it's a case of different people, same problems, made up to the standards you expect from a soap, but I personally I don't really get it.
