Dr Li Mei Chen (2003 - 2006) arrived to New Zealand on a study program from China. After arriving with very poor spoken English skills and weak pronunciation of the English language, approximately one year after her coming to New Zealand she had a flawless English accent as if she was a New Zealand born Chinese citizen.

I have kind of a love/hate relationship with this show - sometimes it is gripping, funny and touches on various social issues pretty well, and other times the story and the characters are so stoopid I want to scream! I've been watching it off and on since the beginning of 1992, there's been times when I can't miss a single episode, other times when I couldn't care less. Shortland St does pretty good villains, though - the characters of Mckenzie Choat, Oscar Henry, Greg Feeney and Aleesha Cook (among others) are all unforgettable!
