  1. It's quite common for prejudice against "the enemy" to stem from military service - certainly a plausible explanation as to why someone would be prejudiced against one ethnic group, not another. Having said that, I would expect Alf not to like Roo's suitor because he wasn't good enough for his little girl, rather than his race
  2. If he was going to be against a particular race, it would likely be the race that was shooting at him during the war.
  3. Alf fought in vietnam - makes sense he'd have more problem with Asians than Europeans. And Frank was pretty Australianised
  4. Could be that they all thought bringing up Bobby would be too painful for the other characters...
  5. I'm not sure the police would rush in like they did on Jesse and Kylie's wedding day. It would me more off a here's a summons crime.
  6. Josh did feel responsible - he thought he could have saved her, if he had a defib
  7. It strikes me as the sort of thing that Alf wouldn't have hidden in the house he shared with Ailsa - it was a secret he was kept from her and he would have kept it elsewhere...
  8. Yeah, but that was always meant to happen - they even go by the same name - the first syllable of their surname....
  9. They just cut scenes AFAIK - for example they may have embraced and kissed, but we just saw the hug - something like that. Damn Celia Stewart types....
  10. The Checkout is an Australian consumer affairs television series. The show's first series of 10 episodes premiered on 21 March 2013 on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) television station ABC TV.[1] A second series consisting of 16 episodes commenced airing on 20 February 2014.[2] On 9 April 2015, a third series consisting of 12 episodes began airing.[3] The series was renewed for a fourth series, which began airing on 7 April 2016 consisting of 12 episodes. The series returned for a fifth series, airing twelve episodes between 6 April 2017 and 29 June 2017.[4][5]The Checkout, with a new look, logo, opening theme and art, still retaining original cast and segments, returned for a sixth season on 30 January 2018.[6] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Checkout
  11. I think she was a reasonable kid - she didn't deal well with her mother's death and father's re-marriage, at the time - so she acted out - rather than those things being personality traits. Curious: do you think any re-cast is better than the original?
  12. Adulthood makes a lot of difference to people - you don't notice it so much if you watch them grow up, but if you meet them again after a number of years it's very obvious
  13. Lots of kids have bad home lives for a long time before someone realises...
  14. That is the age they turn during the year and depends on when their Bday falls.
  15. I don't think there's ever been a cat?
  16. Shannon and Curtis had a dog when they came to the bay too.
  17. We haven't heard he's not returning either... There hasn't been a list that he's not on....
  18. There haven't been any rumours posted about folks returning at this point
  19. Judgement based on purely on physical appearance. (I'm answering your question not expressing offence)
  20. To be clear - I'm not calling anyone stupid for hating (teen) Roo - certainly she wasn't a nice person and hating that character is a perfectly valid opinion for that reason. Likewise liking the character for bringing interesting story lines is just as valid.
  21. I didn't call people stupid for having an opinion. Treating Justine badly because they thought Roo was a horrible person, isn't having an opinion. It's not knowing the difference between TV and reality. Some people have "opinions" that aren't matters of opinions - facts are not opinions - choosing to believe the opposite of a fact is not "having an opinion" that's just being wrong. It is fair to call that person stupid.
  22. A quick google tells me that Family and friends started out as 1hr per week. It's often said that the work load for an actor on H&A is heavy given the 2.5 hr each week so that should have been a less intensive gig - she may have been able to balance that with drama school whereas it wasn't an option while filming H&A. I'm sure I've read somewhere that she refused to revisit the character - guess she would have been asked back for something like Alf's 60th - due to the negative backlash. It shows she did she did a great job playing a villain but also the bad side of people being stupid not to be able to separate the actor and the character.
