  2. I don't think I've ever been this angry about Home and Away killing off a character.Certainly not since Chloe.I thought Oscar couldn't be more mistreated than he was last year, when the potential of him and Maddy as a couple was completely wasted, with them getting no real storylines while they were together and him being made to look like a bad boyfriend to justify Maddy hooking up with Matt, but no, it got worse.Three months of being treated as part of the scenery and then, much like Denny, he gets a death which isn't about him at all, it's just a cheap publicity stunt: "Tune in and see whic

  4. I just find the whole thing massively disappointing.VJ was a character too ingrained in the show to have his age messed about with but what we're left with is some very awkward halfway house.In Jett and VJ, we had two teenagers who actually looked like teenagers, rather than the usual 15-year-olds-played-by-23-year-olds, and if they were going to recast VJ, they should have carried through with that and kept a realistic-looking teen group, as they've done with the supporting characters in that age group.But no, someone thought it would be a good idea to try and turn him into the show's new pin

  6. Happy birthday BTTB! There's an even scarier anniversary for me this year... April 11th will be TWENTY years since I published the first issue of Summer Bay News online (the forerunner of H&A Source which merged with Chris' site to become BTTB). That certainly makes me feel old. I have fond memories of 13 years ago. When I hear songs from the time they always remind me of being at my job in the US, being interrupted by messages from Chris for most of the day after he got home from school, always with some new idea for the site. It's really good to be back as a contributor again a

  7. Forgot to mention another piece of useless trivia, the week of Shane's death was quite unique in that all five episodes were both written and directed by the same person - Sean Nash (yup that's where Travis' surname came from). Whilst a director always covers the whole week, back in those days writers would usually only do two, occasionally three eps max (it's most often a different writer for every ep nowadays). So to have someone write all five eps, and then direct them, is something that's certainly never happened before now in the EY eps, and I doubt it's happened again since.

  8. I think one of the main problems with the recast was that everything happened too fast. I was completely ready to accept Matt Little as VJ, because recasts and SORASing happens, that's how soaps work. But it hasn't worked. He doesn't feel like VJ at all. What they should've done is reintroduced Matt Little as VJ, but given him small storylines where he was more of a supporting character, and showed us that he's still the same sweet VJ we knew and loved. Then, over time, they could make him grow up more. If they wanted him to be angry and lash out, that's fine, people change, but they should've

  13. No-one knows what happens behind closed doors? Maybe Sophie and her ex grew apart? Maybe they broke up and parted on good terms or perhaps something else happened, either way it's none of our business. When they were together she did put a lot of pictures of them together on SM, but I noticed she stopped doing so a while back... James Stewart and Sarah Roberts started dating each other at the start and they obviously fell for each other on set and hanging out off it too. Either way i'm happy for Sophie/Patrick they make a lovely and good looking couple and the chemistry between th

  16. They do seem to be trying to take Andy down the same path as Heath…and it’s not going to work. Because they’ve forgotten what worked with Heath, or perhaps never knew. For me, Heath’s relationship with Bianca was almost the least important part of his redemption, it wasn’t what made him a good person, it was what he could be once he became a good person. The change came when he learned he was a father and was determined to be a good person for his daughter, and with the catch-22 that once people started treating him like a human being, after even his brothers initially didn’t think him worth m

  18. Though you're leaving out the fact that he's the only one to have played him for nearly 7 out of the 13 years VJ's been on the show, not to mention that all those before him (with perhaps the exception of Cooper Scott briefly) were non-speaking babies/toddlers with no particular prominence. It's not so much the fact that he's been recast that people aren't happy about, we all know it happens all the time, but more the suitability of the replacement and the rather transparent reason for casting him. Around 95% of the comments I've read both on here and various other places on the net all s

  19. Well, it’s hard to believe but as of today, 14th January 2014, ‘Back to the Bay’ is 10 years old! There’s an article on the main site detailing some of the history of the site, as well as some pics of days gone by, but I thought I’d give a personal perspective in this thread. Whilst it’s a bit of an old cringeworthy cliché to say it’s been a “life changing experience”, my own involvement with the site has certainly had a huge effect on mine. In 2003 I came across Jeremai’s ‘Home and Away Source’ website, it stood out as one of only a couple of sites that actually provided original cont

  22. Long time lurker but didn't see this posted anywhere... In a very unexpected move, the entire 1988 season has been uploaded to Amazon Prime today. I don't know if that paves the way for future seasons but it would definitely seem promising. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07YBNTL7N/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=home+and+away&qid=1569439134&s=instant-video&sr=1-1

  30. RIP Mason, whose death aired in the UK this month. Given that this thread hasn't been used in nearly a year, and there's a post on the last page from over three years ago, I guess he's not someone anyone thought much about. It seemed to take a while for people to warm to him, and perhaps some never did. He wasn't a saint by any means, he could be a bit of a player, he made wrong choices and bad calls right up to the end. But in my opinion, he was one of the few genuinely decent young men on a show that badly needs them.So of course, he got hardly any storylines, and then got casually killed of

  31. It certainly is a great thing for UK fans of the show, and it's definitely a step in the right direction! Of course it would have been nice to see a terrestrial television repeat so that it's free for all in the UK, but I think we all knew that was going to be pretty unlikely. It is however only a small step so far. As someone has already mentioned to us on Twitter, it's debatable as to whether 200 episodes (which don't even make up the whole season) is a big enough draw for people to start a H&A marathon, or sign up to Prime video if they're not a member already. If Amazon are indeed

  35. I feel that it was totally ridiculous... All or nothing... But for what? Some chick that came in for a few scenes then he loves her and goes to jail for her so she can have her family. Like what the! Kyle in my eyes has always been the level headed family Braxton that is the protector. His exit story line has absolutely nothing to do with his own family, even when they begged him to not be so stupid "his answer was I love her" - totally wasn't convincing. I'm quite annoyed at how this has all panned out. It was a really messed up unorganised exit in my opinion. He deserved better.

  36. Wow........ the writing continues to hit new lows! So Brax is fighting to clear his name and is risking spending 20yrs in prison because he didn't wanna go down for something he didn't do and refuses to go to prison and be away from his family and upcoming new baby - so he gave up the option of taking the 8 years to right. Then all of a sudden they come around and arrest Ash for being an accomplice to the murder, he's not close to being convicted of the crime, he's just being arrested - and now Brax all of a sudden gives up everything and states he murdered Dean. I mean really!? How ab

  40. After a less than promising start in 2012, Kyle has blossomed into one of my favourite characters.Along with Heath, he seems to represent the genuinely nice face of the Braxtons, along with possessing a dry sense of humour which makes him always fun to watch.I was worried that he was too similar to the other Braxtons to really offer the contrast but he's managed to quietly plug away and present us with a character who is intelligent and educated and capable of fitting into the world the other brothers inhabit without necessarily being a part of it, he's equally at home in more well-off surroun

  42. it's odd how they haven't given Morag a proper send off. They should dedicate a farewell story to her. She was a lot more popular that people realised!

  43. I thought there was room to explore a bond between Kyle and Oscar/Evie after they all got kidnapped together by the twins father. Afterall Kyle did risk himself to try save them but nope instead we got Andy bonding with Oscar just because he was dating Hannah. Huge missed opportunity right there for non-Braxton relationships that he could've had.

  44. I guess it'd be boring if we all felt the same.I like Kyle, maybe in spite of some of his traits.He's not a violent psychopath, he's a broadly speaking good person who nevertheless does a lot of bad things.He was messed up when we first met him, trying to live up to the image of a father he hadn't really known but deeply conflicted.Casey's killed his father, apparently for good reason, and there's a real sense of Kyle trying to talk himself out of it.He follows Casey around as if trying to convince himself that Casey's the good guy and he doesn't need to do anything, which I think is an import

  45. I was never a big River Boys fan, but I liked Casey, and Heath was just kind of a lug, but I’ve always been sort of indifferent to Brax. I didn’t love him, and I didn’t despise him in the way that some people do. But there was something about him I just didn’t understand – something that stopped me from connecting with the character in any sort of way. But after Monday’s episode I’ve finally worked it out. Brax’s main character trait is being selfish. His motivation, his reasons for doing anything are always about doing the thing that he wanted to do. He’d go after the baddies, seek

  46. The moment we were told within a few minutes of him coming in that Hunter was both Zac's son and responsible for the fire I feared that by the time it came out Zac would have bonded with him so much that he wouldn't care and it'd all just get brushed off.And then Hunter just kept on doing evil stuff, yet somehow it still feels like he'll escape the consequences of his actions.But he's just completely twisted and I think a lot of people won't ever accept him as a main character.People will never forget, just like people could never forget that Kane raped Dani, that Angelo killed Jack, that Kyle
