"Everybody needs good neighbours..." Unfortunately we got boring and confusing neighbours instead.

Another request show, this week Mark and Martyn watch the first episode of long-running Australian soap opera Neighbours. So throw another shrimp on the barbie, open a tinny and look out for brown-eyed mullets in the pool...

"Eyes of the Hawk, Ears of the Wolf, Bravestarr! (Bravestarr) Strength of the Bear, Speed of the Poo-Ma!"

Everyone's favourite bowel movement-related super power joke from the playgrounds of 1987 is relived as Mark and Martyn watch Bravestarr again. Pssst... It's just cowboy He-Man on Tatooine...
