  1. I'm suspending jusgement. We all know that in soap land cancers can be cured miraculously.
  2. Excuse me for just using this small piece of your post. It seems to me that you have just described most of us.
  3. I might be repeating myself when I say this but then we're all doing a lot of that. I think the problems with the Charlie Angelo storyline are with the writing. For me, and I concede it's just my view, too much has been "left out" and not explained. We've gone from Angelo "up a tree" and Charlie wanting nothing to do with him to a passionate rekindling of the relationship without the writers giving us any insight into how each character came to that point. We needed some idea of what happened in both Charlie and Angelo's life journeys that brought about that change. We didn't see enou
  4. I certainly thought Aden went out with a whimper rather than a bang. There really was no acknowledgement of the huge character developement he had undergone or the relationships he had formed.
  5. Some caps from Underbelly with Jess.
  6. It really is interesting that Charlie and Angelo seem to be drawing closer together again. Love is a strange thing and people are sometimes drawn together in some sort of self destructive attraction. They really aren't good for each other but they can't let each other go. It's like watching a train wreck. I tend to feel that their relationship is like that and like a good train wreck I can't take my eyes off it.
  7. Not so!! A lot of us like Nicole and think that Tessa is doing a great job playing her. We do have a number of members of the forum who are quite irrationally negative toward her because they believe that after Belle died Aden should have stayed lonely, alone and celibate for an extended mourning period of their choosing. Because he chose to love Nicole rather than do that they hate her. Ummm excuse me... but that's not entirely true... John... and maybe you should reassess your facts before accusing every Nicole hate of hating her just because she got with Aden... no... I'm afraid y

  9. The departure of Annie wasa cause for regret on my part. Not so much because of her as a character, although I did think she was interesting and a little different to the usual Home and Away characters. My main regret was that I thought the producers had returned to their practice of some years ago of nurturing young talent over a nymber of years on the show. This doesn't appear to have happened with Charlotte. However at this stage we don't know why she has left. Maybe it was her decision to return to school and complete her studies, maybe she got a better offer and we will see her app
  10. I couldn't agree more wit these sentiments. I had high hopes that Annie ( Charlotte ) would see a return to the show developing young talent so that it stayed with the show for an extended period. I guess we don't know whether it was Charlotte's decision to leave. If that is the case there's not much the producers can do about it.
  11. Mug of tea with really fresh hot cross bun. Boring I know, but really good.
  12. Salad roll, skinny latte and a Yoyo biscuit.
  13. I was very interested in the dated picture of Anzac Day. That boozy, blokey culture is sort of fading these days. With the Vietnam Veterans our wives and kids have always been a part of the Association. It's an interesting historical picture.
  14. I like the character of Nicole. I think that she has actually been very consistently written over the years. That's not to say that I would like the "person" Nicole if I ever met her probably I wouldn't. She has many characteristics that I wouldn't find appealing in a friend or acquaintance. However as I said I like the character and think she adds something to the mix of characters that make up the show.
  15. I joined the site in September 2004 after previously being a member of Aussie Soap. For many years I just lurked but finally it drew me in. The Script Comp was my downfall. As one who has always been an enthusiatic writer Frankie's invitation to be a judge was one I just couldn't resist. Congrats to Dan and the other hard working staff members. The more I have to do with the site and Forum the harder I realise they work. Happy birthday!! and on to the next 6 years.
  16. I suspect that we're going to see a much more grown up Annie when she returns. There was a suggestion of that before she left.
  17. Nicely written Steph. You're going to have to revise how you write Annie with all her recent character development.
  18. I don't see Rachel so much as a perfectionist as being a product of her medical training which says that if you make a mistake that can mean someone's life. That can be sustained in a professional setting but in a personal setting like with baby Harry it can build up unbearable pressure which Rachel is buckling under. It's not a debilitating personality fault.
  19. Jess has a guest role in Police Rescue Special Ops coming up soon. I look forward to seeing her do something different. Belle was getting a bit limiting toward the end I thought.
  20. Were Martha and Hugo in tonight's episode? I don't recall seeing them.
  21. Did you see the look on Aden's face. I think it was a classic acse of "the lights are on but no-one's at home" Aden is emotionally dead at the moment. I don't think that any thing he does is making any emotional impact on him at the moment. It's not pretty to watch but it is realistic.
