    It would be funnier if his character was named "Lance Armstrong". "Who knew?" says Larry Bird.

    David Beckham. Although Wayne Rooney would be funnier.

    So, Takei & a certain "Jokester" both appeared...

    Thoughts?

    I really enjoyed these last few episodes... Especially Reggie & Amber. (Oh My!)

    I like this series. My main comment would be: if Toks Olagundoye and Simon Templeman ask for a raise, give it to them, because they ARE the show. They just need decent writers and a straightman character to bounce things off of. I love these two. The rest of the cast are generic sitcom people, but these two more than carry the whole thing. They're hilarious.

    Almost had a heart attack thinking he was going to be on a long running aussie soap of the same name.

    I came here to correct OP. The long running Australian Soap Opera is spelled 'Neighbours'

    In fact OP wrote title soo wrong that infact they are refering to different show altogether.

    should differentiate between 'The Neighbors' and 'Neighbours'
