Let's Play "Guess Who"

Guess who I was sitting next to in traffic a couple of weeks ago! You'll never guess, but go on; try.

*waits impatiently*

This isn't really gonna work if I wait in 'Compose' mode for answers to come in, so I'll give you one little hint:

one little hint

That's right, Neighbours' bad boy Paul Robinson himself, Stefan Dennis. He was sitting there, listening to the radio and smiling to himself. He looked content. He looked peaceful. He looked happy. Maybe he'd just run over a kitten or something.

Oh, no ... that's right. The characters aren't real. I keep forgetting.

Anyway, he's one of my favourites on the show (the others being Karl, Susan, Toadie, Rosetta and Frazer), so it was quite a thrill to see that the richest man in Erinsborough was in the lane right next to me -- and that he has to drive himself to work in the mornings like everybody else.

If you're interested, email me and I'll tell you what his licence plate number is.*

* Not really. I don't want Snr Sgt Allan Steiger coming after me.

(Oh yeah, of course. Not real. Got it.)

Why is it that the richest man in Erinsborough actually still lives in Erinsborough? In a brown brick, 2 storey regular looking "palace". It doesn't even have a pool, what's going on there? If 49% of Lassiters is only worth $2 million dollars, how can he live such a lavish lifestyle...
So many holes.

ah clokes, always with the good questions.

i would like to know what kind of car he drives. colour etc. and was he wearing sunglasses, and where EXACTLY were you?

don't be coy - i've known you 2 years now dear little green friend, it's the least you could do.

What is Neighbours? Is it like Friends? Is he hot?

I too have spotted a cast member. I haven't been looking out recently but I saw Ian Smith (Harold Bishop) on my way home one evening a while ago.

If Bevis is too coy, I would suggest that he was travelling in the area of the Nunawading studio or Pin Oak Court where you would be bound to come across someone from Neighbours at some stage.

Do they use the outside of that hospital on Burwood Highway for the Erinsbororough District Hospital (or whatever it is)?

Clokeeeey, shh - careful! They might hear you.

MG, you're biased when it comes to Clokeeeey. But to answer your question, he drives a silver Commodore, no sunglasses, quite cheerful, and although I wouldn't have chosen to identify my whereabouts, Riss has done it for me. I was indeed near the filming location of the show, and after I sat staring at him in open-mouthed awe for three minutes, he turned onto Springvale Road and went to the Network Ten studios.

Kris, it's a 22-year-old Australian soapie, and he's one of the better actors on the show (as I said in the post). To get a feel for what level of quality we're talking about with Neighbours, take Days Of Our Lives, add in a bit of The Young And The Restless, throw in some General Hospital, combine with a healthy dose of The Bold & The Beautiful, then chuck in a jumble of Dallas, Melrose Place, All My Children and Dynasty, before tipping it down the drain and helping yourself to a big fat bowl of Passions.

Well, not really. It's actually pretty good, but we Aussies like to poke fun at it as if we could do better. It's just one of those silly vices some of us have, you know?

Riss, shh - you'll give away that I work for Network Ten! Ian Smith is apparently the nicest man in the business. I hope I understood them correctly when they said 'the business'. And no, they use Maroondah Hospital in Ringwood for the external shots of Erinsborough Hospital. Wikipedia lists all the filming locations if you're interested (but be warned of some SERIOUS spoilers, people).

Yeah, what Clokeeeey said. He's supposed to be a freakin millionaire!!

I think they should create a spin off show for Lou and Mr Bishop, they could live next door to Alf from Home and Away. Good idea or what?

Is Mrs Mangel still on that show? ;-)

So there!!

i also saw ian smith a few years ago, with his wife down at an exercise machinery shop in moorabbin. he was looking at exercise bikes.

obviously went really well with that. he's looking slimmer i think.

I preferred him in 'Infinity Limited'.

Good point, Clokey.

Paul and Izzy were my faves, along with the ever philandering Dr Karl. Susan is exactly like my mum, only my mum never had an affair with a priest, so I do have a small soft spot for that reason.

And Kris, he is not hot, but a good villain.
