    I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that the target demographic for Home and Away, and Neighbours isn't the same as that of CW.net.

    The Home and Away/Neighbours combo is the reason the English hate Australia. It's the inverse equivalent to Bodyline.

    Speaking of which, does Australian TV steal English soaps?

    Coronation Street is the bane of my existence. Though that said I enjoy it every now and then.

    Eastenders is on a lot too.

    Yeah, Channel 9 is worse than Channel 7. Basically ever since Kerry died, it's like they don't even bother trying.

    Wow, missed this earlier but damn it takes me back to all the high school parties I went to.
