Storyline

Serial chronicling the lives of the residents of Ramsay Street in the fictional Australian suburb of Erinsborough. When the series began, it revolved around three families - the Ramsays, the Robinsons and the Clarkes, living at no. 24, no. 26 and no. 28 respectively. Nowadays, the scope of the programme is much wider and only one member of the original families remains in the street. The show reached a watershed in 1997 when the last remaining original character, Helen Daniels, died. The departure of her relatives and arrival of the Scully family marked the start of a new era for Neighbours. There's never a dull moment in Ramsay Street, and despite their many feuds, the residents will always - in the words of the show's theme tune - "be there for one another".

Greatest Sitcom Ever
22 June 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Neighbours is a fantastic situation comedy, huge in all areas, such as cast, episodes and laughs. Neighbours was so real it felt as if you were sitting next to the regular barflys of the most endearing watering hole in TV history.

Neighbours is a sitcom that deserves to be remembered as a classic. Hopefully, in twenty years from now, it will still be doing the rounds on cable TV. Only time will tell.

The characters are so well-rounded that the joy comes simply from watching them interact. As far as I can remember almost every episode of Neighbours ended with someone smiling or laughing, and it's that sense of warmth that is so rare in television, that it makes Neighbours stand tall amongst any competitor, then OR now. I feel wholly justified in calling Neighbours the best program ever made. It's just that good.
