Shows we loved.

Oh it's those memories, we cherish in our pubelescent years. Such is the case of another addictive Aussie soap, we love so much and eat up. Like Prisoner, eventually the stories here, lost much potence and importance. Happening to watch this the other morning, Sunday Morning, 4 a.m - 5 a.m, back to back, I am up near the show's last year (remember the names Craig and Debbie, young star crossed lovers) , well that's where I am. I do like the later blood of actors in this show, where I do miss the splendid performance of Ms Wallace (Pat the Wallace) where you couldn't believe this great actress was homeless once. And the other, well not much a standout, but one of the better players, is of course, Rawlings as the scheming Wayne, plus the delectable Kemp, as the lovable Charlie, who really won't come down to planet earth. Yes addictive and bad, if you watch now, corny, yeah, but addictive viewing of a bad show or movie is a good combination, and one I like, but I really gotta be honest, and lay my cards on the table. With the title now, as referred to this much later part of series, how much reference does the title have tothe characters? Ask yourself that.
