  1. I like the gap and I'm hoping that this summer they show some classic episodes while current episodes are off the air. I was disappointed to see that Channel 5 didn't bother to air any older episodes this year.
  2. Hard to believe he is almost 80! I do hope we see Donald again one last time.
  3. I know! You'd think they'd find a slot on 5* to show H&A. How hard can it be?
  4. I find that hilarious. As if repeats of Cowboy Builders or whatever other trashy lifestyle show they air will do any better.
  5. What was the official reason given by Channel 5 for ceasing to air Home and Away: The Early Years in 2013?
  6. Australian soaps are so different to our UK soaps in this respect. EastEnders and Coronation Street (the only ones I watch) have always kept the same houses over the years and only ever made subtle changes to the locations such as pubs, cafe's etc.
  7. Haven't you seen any old episodes that feature Morag? She was somewhat cold but never evil. I don't like the way she treated Bobby at first but she certainly gave as good as she got! She clearly loves her family but Morag protects herself with a tough exterior which is understandable considering what she's been through.
  8. I'm Sure Most On the Set Of Home And Away Would Know Of Don Fisher, Especially The Originals Like Alf, Marilyn And Irene Who Are Still On The Show, If I'm Honest I hardly Watch The new Series Now I Kind of Stopped Watching Home And Away Since 08 I Do Occasionally Out Of Curiosity Take A Peek What Is Going On In The Show But I Just Wonder Whether Some Of The New Younger Cast Members And Even New Directors Would Remember Him They Should Tbh Considering He Was Part Of The Show For 16 Years, Remember It's Been At least Almost 9 Years Since His Last Appearance In 2007.....(12 If You take In Account Him Leaving As A Full Time Character) As I Wrote It Would Be Awesome To See Him Back Even For One Show As I Doubt He Would Return For Anything Longer And It Was Sad How He Departed In 2007, They Really Dropped The Bomb On Fisher Then, Infact I Just Felt Sorry For Fisher Who I Remember As A Formal , Well Suited , Intelligent Man And Here he Was Looking Frail , bankrupted And Barely Capable Of Buying A Meal In The Diner If only He Left On A Much lighter Note Like In 2003 When he Embraced With Sally And Had That Dream Sequence Of Him in the Pilot Episode Scaring Her lol. Anyway I Read You Watch Old Episodes Of H&A Too......I Wonder If You Prefer The Old H&A Too It Was much More Fun Then And Wasn't as Dark As It Is Now You Used to Have So Much laughs With The Show , Even The First Two Theme Tunes We're classics. I think 2008 was the last great year for the show, especially the beginning. I haven't watched since late 2012, I just got so fed up of the repetitive story lines and from what I've seen it's not all that much better these days. Yeah I can't believe it's been so long since we last saw him! Norman seemed happy to dip in and out and it's a shame it's been so long since we last saw Fisher. Yes, I have seen many episodes from different eras and have a pretty good knowledge of the history of H&A. I definitely prefer the older episodes, (my favourite period is 1998-2004) they had so much more warmth and the characters were like real, everyday people that you could relate to. The absence of the theme tune is a great shame and I think we all miss it. I can't help but think H&A moving to 7TWO could really shake up the show and get it back to its roots.
  9. I don't see how people working on the show would not know who Donald Fisher is. If they don't then they really shouldn't be working on the show.
  10. Perhaps Dan could confirm but I'm pretty sure it's around the 3800-3820 mark. I've just had a look but I can't seem to find the exact numbers.
  11. Absolutely. I hope Lucy Addario gets kicked off the show before she does any more damage. We need older characters, not an invasion of young, pretty talentless hacks being the sole focus.
  12. Are you referring to the story line from 2003/2004?
  13. I wanted to post in the scored music thread but apparently the topic is no longer open to replies?
  14. Thank you! That's longer than I thought.
  15. Does anyone know roughly how long Megan Connolly played the role of Rebecca Nash in 1998?
  16. Roo is pointless. Georgie is great but the most Roo does is give Maddy a hug are hang around the diner doing absolutely nothing.
  17. What a shame that she misses the show. I hope Morag returns at some point. It is odd that she hasn't been part of Alf's PTSD storyline so far.
  18. I respect the views of others and have never criticised people for having a different opinion to my own. A discussion forum is at it's best when there a range of opinions and feelings IMO.
  19. While I understand Steve Peacocke is popular, I wouldn't refer to Steve's Logie win to support that claim. It's common knowledge that the Logies and TV Week are biased towards Home and Away. If you watched then it was painfully obvious how little coverage Neigbours, an Australian institution, got in celebration of it's 30th year. H&A was inducted into the Logies Hall of Fame at a time when the quality is arguably at it's lowest. Why not wait for a milestone year? As for TV WEEK, they only ever have H&A on the front cover. They are owned by 7 and quite simply are a joke. I don't think Steve will ever be back. He just wants to appease his fans. I think TPTB have done the Braxton fans a huge disservice by drip feeding Brax to the viewers every so often just to flog the dead horse that is the Braxton family. They had their time and it's over. #letitgolucy
  20. Do you think they will continue these episodes long-term? In these days of modern technology you'd think they could upload entire seasons to YouTube or even do a deal with iTunes/Netflix/Amazon to show entire seasons.
  21. 16 going on 25 more like! Still hoping they drop Matt Little.
  22. Haha that would be many cd´s I would buy it tho even if it would be expensive It could be released in digital format, these days they wouldn't bother with a DVD release I don't think. Having it on say iTunes means people can purchase individual episodes. Hmm, does Dan know Seven's position on this?
  23. Does anyone know if there is an archive of every episode ever made of H&A? If so, I wonder if they'll ever be released. There have been no compilation DVDs to date so I wonder if anything will ever be released.
  24. I wonder why they would film new stock shots when there are already so many that were used years ago.
