I never understood it as a child whereas my friends loved it. They spent hours watching it, they bought the action figures and all the various different games. I just flicked onto it again and i still don't understand it. Is it simply a 'soap opera' style show with pretend fighting? I am well aware it was scripted (and i told my friends this when i was 11/12 but none of them believed me surprisingly enough! ) but i just don't see how anyone could enjoy it. It also looks quite homo-erotic...lots of toned topless men strutting around in tight coloured trunks. I do appreciate the skills/talent that the actors have in doing what they do but apart from that i'm stumped. Anyone a fan here and want to shed some light on the subject?
