  1. Frank Morgan returns, and the last ever scene features him, seeing as the first ever scene featured him (flashback I know but still a scene).
  2. Torn between Donald Fisher and Alf Stewart. If it had to be just one of those two I think it would be Donald. Alf is a legend but I always was more invested in Flathead. I say yes, Flathead is my fave ever character of all time. Alf and Bobby a close joint second.
  3. A new foster family move into Summer Bay House after Alf's funeral. Revelations that is was just a dream are so against the show and just destroys years of investment into a show. It is H&A not Dallas.
  4. Floss said Cooooeeee as well which made me laugh.
  5. Neville McPhee, he may have been scary if he blew his top. He was usually placid and cheerful.
  6. H&A had a huge teen/young adult focus right from the moment Tom Fletcher got retrenched and left Sydney to move to Summer Bay. I say even in the first 2 years, the show was predominantly for younger people, then difference is they were mentored by older people such as Tom, Pippa, Ailsa, Alf, Floss, Don and Neville. When the show begun it had a huge younger character focus as it had Stevo, Frank, Carly, Bobby, Roo, Sally, Matt, Lynn (all youngsters), and Lance and Martin who were slightly older but still youngsters. Then Alison Patterson who was a semi regular. Brett and Stacey Macklin were
  7. Colleen was brilliant. Colleen, Morag and Celia were good as a trio when they got together, they were like the Ena, Minnie and Martha of Summer Bay.
  8. It is now 18th Jan in Australia but still 17th here, so happy birthday for yesterday H&A in Australia. The first regular episode had Matt chatting up Carly on the beach with Lynn. Carly takes Lyn's thunder from her after Matt asks Lyn to her his surf jacket zip up. "I'm Carly" says Carly to Matt, "I'm sick" says Lynn to Matt.
  9. Bobby being recast would not have been good for me, I'd just think of her as "Not Bobby". Like the recast Cody in Neighbours was a fake. If Don Fisher was still a head at SBH today, no doubt the lippy students would reply with "OK boomer" to Flathead when he admonished them lol. Don is too old to put up with such crap now from pupils anyway.
  10. Yes it was a slight change of the character's age but H&A has done this on numerous occasions with other characters. A 33 year old soap is bound to have such errors. Some character ages such as Don, Steven, Ailsa, Hayley and Flynn's ages have always been consistent it seems. Ailsa was hinted at being 38 in 1988 and 50 in 2000, tallies nicely.
  11. On the romance DVD is a highlight of H&A romances from the start to 2006/2007 when the DVD was released. Yes the Pilot ep is still the only 1980s full ep on DVD. Some 1980s eps were released on VHS in 1883, 5 classic episodes. The 2000th episode video from 1996 was brilliant. They should release more classic H&A on DVD.
  12. Managed to find a H&A Romances DVD the other day, which has the pilot episode, so bought it, mainly for the pilot episode bonus feature. I have watched all of the 1988 season now, so the pilot completes it, as it set the stage for 33 years (and counting) of drama. Nice to have a H&A episode on DVD, the movie which opened the show. Huge mistake Bobby being killed off in 1993. Although every time I open a fridge I think of Bobby.
  13. Yes, in the 1990s, H&A had just 3 proper villains - Dodge, Saul and Perez. The days when proper villains were rare in the show but made their mark. Those 3 men were my fave villains as well. Today, H&A villains are the norm, and are regular characters.
  14. Never say never, as Ross Kemp says about any EastEnders return. Jodi returning to H&A is probably a never say never answer.
