Home and Away
I watched Home and Away for about 6 months when it first started airing in 1988. Tonight I was channel flicking after finishing watching a video, and happened to stay in Home and Away just long enough to see Don Fisher (the school principal) have his farewell episode. Now I seriously do not watch this show, and the chances of me seeing this particular episode out of all of the others that have aired in the past 15 years are so small it's amazing. It was one of those sentimental sorts of episodes with footage from the past 15 years that I like in TV shows.
But the coolest part (and probably only redeeming feature) of the show is Kate Ritchie. She was 9 years old when the show first started in 1988 and has literally grown up on the show. She went all through high school and university and has just been named the new school principal. And I found out tonight that she has the same birthday as me (14th August), exactly 5 years younger than me.
