  1. They were both my favourite characters, Belle was a legend, and even when Aden was the bad boy I liked his character, and knew he'd eventually turn into a genuinely great person. Show hasn't been the same since Belle's death, and after Aden left it's just gone downhill.

  2. Haven't posted for a while. Had a major catch-up the other day, watched about 6 episodes over 2 days.

    Great episoes, I agree that it's not quite up to the standards set earlier, still some wonderful episodes though. EVERY scene with Lance and Martin has been brilliant, the 'Martin Dribble' comment was hilarious. Never a dull moment with those guys around.

    Loved the Alan winning most popular student, that was really a nice scene, as was Bobby recieving her award.

    So glad I got hooked on these eps.

  3. I'd heard rumours about a dummy (not Nico) being involved in these re-creations. That Philip/Gary confrontation was absolutely brilliant and a sign of a show that isn't taking itself too seriously.

    It is clearly obvious that the thing that Phillip Matheson was spinning round and round and threw off the cliff in the re-creation is a dummy (and a pretty lame one at that).

    REALLY???? Unbelievable! I'll have to watch the scene again!

  4. Peter Baker was one of the best characters in HA ever. He actually left the show twice and came back. I had hoped for a long time he would still return to the show one day but I guess now there would be no point. So many things have changed since and everyone linked to him has left the bay as well. I am hoping Nick will do well in his new show Body of Proof. Hopefully it will not b canceled after a few episodes like his last show.

    Agreed. Absolutely no doubt about it, he was an outstanding character, and there's no surprise that when he was on it the show was at its best.

  5. These episodes have been absolutely great, I've just had a repid catch-up. I'm so so glad that Martha's now been put up for adoption because IMO Roo is the weakest link of the current cast by a country mile and now that I've watched the stories so rapidy I've begun to realise that.

    One thing I have noticed is that since the episode in which Bertram drinks coffee at the store, the community feel has started to take on a magical feel, which wasn't there in episodes before. It just feels like everyone has their place and a role in the community, and I think that's great. I have to admit I'm a little bit disappointed that the early years relied so heavily on guest cast - I know Home and Away has had a tendency to do that even in recent years, take 2007 for example, but Stacey, Phillip, and particularly Narelle are all really fantastic characters. Colleen is another gem, I loved her interaction eith Donald a few episodes back.

    I also think Floss and Neville have a strong presence in the bay even when they're not doing much. They are among my favourite characters, severely underrated!

    Good post, and I agree about the guest characters. I really like Stacey, Phillip has worn on me and Narelle was great, it’s a pity she left. Last week was probably the best week of TEY, but seems almost every week I'm saying that! I really enjoyed the Carly and Gary storyline, and it's been continuing this week but on a different trend.

    I'd have to disagree on Floss and Neville though, IMO they are the weakest part of the show. I don't mind Floss, but Neville seems totally useless and doesn't really have a purpose.

  6. I don't think I've EVER hated a character as much as the new Dexter. He's incredibly painful.

    I actually like sarcasm, but he takes it way, way too far. Everything he says is full of sarcasm, he's completely over the top. I think I've laughed at about 2 things he's said in a month. He better ease up on it because he's driving me insane, so much so that I had to turn off last nights episode because I couldn't take him any more.

    It's like they're trying to develop a new Robbie, problem is that Robbie was an exceptional character, lots of depth, and was legitimately funny whereas Dexter is just plain annoying and forced.

  7. Phillip seems like a bit of a tool, he was a bit full on in trying to persue Stacey. It actually made Lance & Martin come out of it looking pretty well. :lol:

    I, at least initially, really like Stacey. And is it just me or has Brett grown on you, I don't mind him at all anymore. I actually think his acting has improved a LOT since we first saw him, but as a character he seems quite alright now.

  8. ok after watching today epiesode i have 2 questions

    1 who is that guy with alisa

    2 why hasnt lyn been removed from the titles

    today ep was much more charecter driven then the new epesiodes

    TBH I've stopped watching the new episodes, over the past few months I've lost interest and haven't watched an episode for a week or two. I've tried, but just can't. Today's episodes are terrible. The loss of so many good characters in a short space of time, and having awful replaecments, has been the biggest reason.

    BTW, is there a reason why I can't post (or evcen access) the current H&A forum? Do you have to have been a member for so long or have x amount of posts??

  9. Wow, what a great week this has been. Alf really blew it today!

    I absolutely cannot stand Roo, my goodness what a self centered, conniving, manipulative girl she is.

    Every scene she's in I want someone to punch her out. That obviously means she's playing her role well, but it's so painful!
