Dr Li Mei Chen (2003 - 2006) arrived to New Zealand on a study program from China. After arriving with very poor spoken English skills and weak pronunciation of the English language, approximately one year after her coming to New Zealand she had a flawless English accent as if she was a New Zealand born Chinese citizen.

Shortland Street was pretty good for a soap (although I prefer Home and Away, which has more excitement like a gun-toting, crystal-meth addict on the lose), but Shortland Street has gone down hill.
If you like your programs with 99% relationship stuff and 1% excitement, then you might like the 2005 series of Shortland Street. I haven't actually watched much of it, but I can tell from the ads on T.V. that relationships are the main source of entertainment for 2005.
But, if you can see episodes before 2005, it has had some good stuff and the end of year cliffhangers are a must for most viewers of this type of soap opera.
