  1. Could members please remember to only post discussion of the week 8 episodes that have been shown in some states but not in others to the Week 8 thread in Australian Discussion.
  2. That´s weird, i have heard so many times the word Yabbie Creek and them going there but im gonna stop now, i don´t think the mods are gonna be any happy if we go more off topic now:) You're right, the Mods wouldn't.
  3. Wasn't it Jett that threw the party? Chris just gleefully accepted the idea.
  4. What happened to the thread i started? What thread are you referring to?
  5. They certainly didn't when I was little. They still had steam trains.
  6. I must say I miss the late night MSN chats with Dan, Karen, Kat and QA etc. We all must have had more time on our hands then!! And the April Fool's Day pranks. The massive "staged"fight among staff one year. The word substitution prank. Good days!!
  7. Time flies doesn't it!! Happy Anniversary to the site. I came on Board with BTTB in September 04 and although my memory is hazy ( I am an ageing geriatric ) I think I migrated over from another site which closed. I started watching the show when I was teaching. I had a group of semi- illiterate students who had no interest at all in reading and writing. I did find in conversation with them that they all watched some show on TV called Home and Away and were animated in their discussion of it in class each morning. It provided me with an opportunity to encourage them to begin writing
  8. They are regarded as SPAM. This is meant to be a discussion Board.
  9. 40 degrees yesterday, 36 today. Hopefully cooler tomorrow.
  10. Mustn't have express myself very well. I agree with you about her developing relationships and I think her community role in the diner coupled with her more involved role with "boarders" in her house places her ideally for that.
  11. Lynne's Irene had massive storylines during her 20 year tenure. But in recent years, she has been neglected a lot. Hopefully, Irene will get a big storyline soon and she'll be interesting. As its previously been said though. It is not big storylines that Irene needs, but a purpose in the show. I agree with this. I suspect Lynne doesn't want massive continuous storylines but interesting little vignettes which give her chances to interact with characters as a source of advice and support. Her varied life experience makes her ideally suited to that role. Whilst I agree t

  13. So Red Ranger does that mean that UK viewers have two breaks each year? One in our Christmas ( Summer ) period and one in your Summer ( July etc. ) If so that does seem absurd as we only have about a 4 week break over Christmas.
  14. Certainly sounds good. I can almost smell it.!!
  15. Just bought the complete works of Credence Clearwater Revival. I'm showing my age I know but they are still fabulous.
  16. Mod Edit. This post contained almost no capital letters for character names or normal punctuation. Both of these are required by Board rules. I have edited to add these. Could you please make an attempt to use Capital letters and punctuation.
  17. Another interesting conversation between Irene and Leah last night about finding some new challenges and being sick of making coffee. I'm a bit intrigued as to where this might be leading.
  18. I agree she's reminiscent of Gypsy and Gypsy was one of my favourite characters. She is an insecure little girl trying to put on a brave front.
  19. I'm not saying he is the greatest actor of all time but between 2011-12 he definitely managed to out-act some of the others (not the older cast) and he could manage different scenes with ease. But this year whenever Casey is supposed to be sad, hurt, angry, happy... it just comes across as pure crazy. It does come across as forced and trying too hard so I am finding myself laughing more at the serious scenes involving Casey. I can't help it ! Agreed with you 100%. The producers obviously love Casey too much. There's no way he is talented like the older cast. It's a disgrace that Alf, Marily

  21. Blowing like crazy. Would blow your dog off the chain.
  22. I thought last night's episode clearly showed the character development of Bianca. She is a multi layered character and becoming more so. Obviously the whole Rocco tragedy has matured her and calmed some of her more volatile traits. I admired how last night she switched from the stunning, red bikini clad, soon to be River Girl to the responsible senior teacher so quickly when the occasion demanded it. I hope the writers can continue to develop these two aspects of her character in parallel into the future.
  23. Just a reminder to all. Although the Character Actor Forum is run at Australian pace events that have not yet aired in Australia or have only been announced in Spoilers should not be posted in this Forum. On rare occasions when spoilers are needed to make sense of a discussion Spoiler Tags should be used. John H Mod
  24. It would be rather random. It would have to be very well written to tie it in with current events and to introduce the Chloe back story to audience members who have never met her. I would like to see Irene back in the school bursars job. I thought that worked well.
