    Yeah...not sure if I can accept that explaination. Sounds like he was being prejudice based on his own beliefs which had nothing to do with his experience in Vietnam, unless he mentioned that in his explanation . 

    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

    Charlotte was bad person and don't see why anyone should think any less of Josh and more to point it was not intentional of Josh to kill Charlotte, it  was self defence. 

    Charlotte would have killed more people had she lived. 

    Josh West...

    Completely off-topic, but my brain is obviously working hard to block out the Braxtons & Barretts as when I saw Josh killed Charlotte, I was thinking Josh West & Charlotte Adams and thought, ‘no Charlotte drowned!’

    Josh did feel responsible - he thought he could have saved her, if he had a defib

     Has Alf had the letter is his wallet all this time? If not, why would that survive the mudslide when the Stewart family records didn’t?

    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...

    So I'm under the impression that home and away films around 6 months ahead right? So can someone please explain how the Charlie Joey storyline worked. I heard it got pulled really quick because of all the public backlash but if film so far ahead doesn't that mean they had already pulled the storyline well and truly ahead of time or did they film to diffrent outcomes?

    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....

    In my opinion that is too much of a change of character. Maybe Georgie Parker can’t play the old Roo and maybe old Roo can’t play new Roo. It’s all very bizarre

    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

    I am always surprised that Bobby was not already in foster care before Pippa and Tom moved to the Bay.

    And I always thought it was strange that Alisa didnt take Bobby in or even Alf or at least reported her to social services. 


    But I guess it fitted with storyline for pilot but still is good a point. 

    Lots of kids have bad home lives for a long time before someone realises...

    She did but I not sure if it's fair to call people "stupid " for having an opinion 

    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.

    Nothing wrong with an Actor wanting to improve their craft. but Justine had been in TV series for 5 years prior to Home and Away and according to the interview below, she was scheduled to appear in another TV series 6 or some months after she left Home and Away

    The new series Family And Friends

    " undeserving of the sudden fame" 

    In my opinion this definitely means that she wasn't anticipating the backlash of her character  and it affected her in a negative way, which is understandable. she wanted to get away and lay low for a while.

    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.
