wink McLeod's Daughters

Am I the only lame person who sometimes watches this show on We?



Is it on a mainstream channel in Australia? Is it popular there? I am curious....

It's really not a great show; just your average evening drama, but with Australian accents....I can't get enough of that!

The show is on a mainstream free to air channel here in Australia, and it is a popular show. I've only watched half an episode of it though.

Beli
Has it been airing there for a while? I was wonder how far behind the Australia airing we are because WE will have the season finally and then two weeks later it will be the new season premiere.


You got that cool accent too don't you! I'm jealous!

The shows been going for years.

I don't have that accent at all. The actors in that show have horrid Sydney accents.

I'm originally from the outback and sound completely different.

Thank you for the site beli

It looks like they changed a character so we must be really behind.


From the outback I'm sure you have a cool accent. I'm from California don't have even a hint of accent whatsoever

You can't not have an accent. You've probably got a Californian accent. Everyones got an accent.

Not really, it's the boring version of accents.

Thanks for all the McLeod's info...my pillow is calling. Have a good night or is it day there?

California accents are really quite distinct. The people I have met from California have much louder accents than mine. lol.

Tis day time here. Nighty night

Really? They sound different than most of the Sydney people I've met.

Wow, so the show has been on awhile. Last week we had the episode where the youngest girl (can't remember her name now) got married for 5 minutes to the Italian guy, then changed her mind.

Next episode she is apparently going to go crazy on the rebound.

Fun times!

Thanks for the info beli!
