  5. It's interesting to see a young Joel Nash and Trevor Gunson act as uncle and nephew too. I also find it fascinating how much I dislike Louise Crawford in her role as Shelly, but I love almost every other character she's done since. I guess it does come down to the writing alot.
  6. They are both also available on TenPlay for those in Australia.
  7. The main aim of these anniversary or celebration episodes should be - celebrate the milestone with key current characters at the forefront - Showcase the shows rich history through nods to storylines or characters (frequently come through returning characters) and bring in lapsed viewers - make dramatic television and show the actor’s abilities - create compelling stories that push the show forward HAA’s last successful attempt at this was in 2008 and it worked well with the mystery of Sam’s death/Sally’s departure(and various character returns)/Milco story and the New Diner How would the current show do this?
  8. With Neighbour's 35th Anniversary occurring next week, and EastEnder's only last month it is providing a stark contrast to how Home and Away celebrated their 30th anniversary. Home and Away has shied away from celebrating these milestones (episode 7000, character anniversaries such as Leah and Marilyn and the 30th anniversary) due to a fear of being perceived as old. This article explains the contrast in more detail https://www.mediaweek.com.au/mercado-on-tv-neighbours-never-been-better-long-may-it-continue/ However with HAA filing 6 months in advance, and the show being plotted and scripted even further before that, surely the show is thinking about setting up something for the 35th anniversary celebration and putting the important characters at the forefront of storylines. I know some may suggest that now may be a little premature, but look at how long Alf and Martha's wedding took to come from the initial sink hole reveal. In saying this, how do you think the show should celebrate their next big milestone, or should it pass like any other normal episode/season of the show? Personally, I think the show needs to build/bring back stronger family ties around their original/longserving characters instead of blink and miss it returns. Giving Irene with her biaological children and grandchildren, or Leah with her brothers their children, or Alf and Duncan,Bryce and Martha will open many doors and opportunities for long running anniversary storylines.

  10. I thought it may have been fitting to have Billie die in the fire at Leah's house. Her death was very rushed otherwise.

  12. Students can leave school after they turn 16 years old if they have an apprenticeship, TAFE course or full time job to go to and have parental consent. Students also receive a Record Of School Achievement (ROSA) at the end of Year 10 which is a qualification that highlights marks and achievements to date. The ROSA replaced the School Certificate in 2012 which was a similar to the HSC in which students had to do a series of exams.
  13. Yeah I understand Judy's POV with the 'going out with the trash' quote, but i think that perceptions is just looking at Ailsa's death as a small arc or one episode of her character. Ailsa's death worked great as it showed she and her body weren't able to cope with all the pressure and stress she had undergone recently. I like to think of it as the stress of re-opening the diner and her arguing with Alf was the straw that broke the camels back, as Ailsa already had 2 major breakdowns in her last few years, lost the diner, her home in the last few months and was very different and cold compared to the 1988 Ailsa we knew for the last 13 years.
  14. I actually think if you look at the sequence of events that lead to Ailsa's demise, being the mudslide and losing her home, the diner fire (and there was something else i can't quite recall at this stage), a heart attack was quite realistic. She had had a horrible time in the end of the 90s/2000 and the whole Shauna saga was very traumatic for her. Could there have been a better build up on the day? Sure. Could they have made an effort about it being something more than just the cardboard boxes she told alf to move? Sure. At the end of the day she didn't have a Beth Hunter or Dan Baker death. There was a climax, and it served it's purpose. Judy wanted to leave, and it propelled storylines for Alf, Duncan and Shauna.
  15. How many sieges have there been at Summer Bay High? I recall one in 2001 with Dani, Brodie and Sally and one in the mid 90s. Have there been any more?
