Neighbours was magnificent in 2003 / 2004 when you had Izzy and Karl, Sky, Lyn being by herself due to the actor of Joe being sacked, etc. I stuck with the show from 2005 - 2007 when it went absolutely potty with Sindi going insane, Sky's baby being stolen twice!, that awful actress that played Katya, the fabulous Elle. I couldn't be bothered when it had the huge revamp with lots of money invested in to it, I just couldn't stand Ned's son and that boring Parker family, specifically Bridget. They also gave Susan a long-term health problem which was a huge mistake, it was a pretty confusing storyline too.
I remember being anti-social and not going out when it was on, being pissed off at Christmas and Wimbledon breaks. There was a point in 2008 where I just stopped watching Neighbours and Home & Away all together.
I used to be obsessed with that 20 years Neighbours dance with Izzy on a swing above everyone else.
