  1. When Marilyn had amnesia she made a reference to Irene's change of hair colour. This was not a reference to the recast as Lynne McGranger had blonde hair for her first few years in the role.
  2. It's really sad that the writers need Marilyn to be drunk in order to write her as funny. Oh bring back the old writers who understood characters
  3. To be honest I would put Brad Cooper ahead of Robert Perez. Brad was one sick individual.
  4. Also one of the few sets where the studio set was a replica of the real indoor location.
  5. No offence but this was before Roo and Marilyn were in it. This was around the time Sally was leaving. If she had been written properly then she could have added a lot. But yeah judging by what they did (or failed to do) with Marilyn and Roo, she probably wouldn't have done anything anyway. But my point was she COULD have if the producers were half competent and cared half as much about the show's long running legacy characters as their own personal 2.5 year contract creations.
  6. Rebekah Elmaloglou (Sophie) said something similar years ago about being open to returning. H&A promptly ignored it, despite the show desperately needing someone like her at the time. So Neighbours snapped her up. H&A's loss was Neighbours' gain.
  7. As much as I love the whole saga, there is no denying that the writers only focused on the aspects they wanted to focus on. And not anything else. They wanted Alf to be the one who knew the secret, but they didn't want to focus on any wrongdoing on Alf's part. They wanted Don to have cheated on Barbara (and her sister to have betratyed her), but they didn't focus on, or even show, Barbara's reaction to any of it.
  8. Yes, he makes some blink-and-miss-it remark along the lines of "I've kept quiet about this long enough" before heading to see Morag. But really, his negligence in the whole thing is severely downplayed. Nonetheless, the way the writers wrote the story, they needed somebody to "be in the know". So whoever that was person, it was always going to seem that they were a bit negligent just by nature of the way the story was panning out and tying in with the backstory.
  9. Lack of imagination and effort on behalf of the production team. Everything is just filmed in the same part of palm beach now (the part directly under the surf club) and the area around the Pier Diner on the other side of the penninsula. You don't even see the other interesting little beaches anymore like Fisherman's beach (once a huge part of the show), Snapperman beach, Whale beach, Avalon Beach, the rock pool, all the places that used to be pasted together to feel like Summer Bay. Of course the current producers don't have a clue what that means. I don't think they even get the difference b
  10. And a certain 1999 episode for a pre-Dani Tammin Sursok
  11. I don't think the poster means officially fostering Bobby through DOCS channels, rather just Ailsa taking her in and letting her live with her (there were plenty of bedrooms in that general store flat as we found out later on). Bobby was living independently anyway (sleeping in squats etc) so it's not like anything would have had to be done officially. It's a good question. I can only assume that Ailsa felt it was best not to "push it" with Bobby. Ailsa as a mate, was the one person Bobby could trust and come to for support and advice. Maybe Ailsa felt if she made herself too much of a "m
  12. I agree with that. She was the sole comic relief in 1993 and 1994. When Marilyn returned some of the comedy went back to her (although personally I didn't think they got Maz's character quite right to start with in 1995 and she didn't really hit her stride until 1996). Irene continued to have a mix of comedy moments combined with character growth between 1996-1999. By 2000 I think she'd had all her growth and the comedy aspect was pretty much gone, she was ready to settle down and the intention of the producers was for her and Ken to become a solid family unit on the show. Sadly the actor
  13. I agree when you think about it objectively. His happy memories of growing up with the Fletchers were 10 years in the city with them. He was only in Summer Bay for slightly over one year and in that time he was nearly tricked into marrying and fathering a kid that wasn't his, nearly died in a car crash, married again only for it to end in divorce a matter of weeks later, and it's also where his foster father died after he left. Not quite sure why he'd want to return and celebrate a town that did all that to him in less than a year after a comparatively happy childhood in the city. Yo
  14. Jack was literally the worst cop ever, he flouted the rules whenever it suited his personal desires, yet used the law to assert moral high ground over others at every opportunity. What a hypocrite. I agree about Joel, if he had been on the list. Peter should have been included as the show was plenty dramatic during his era. And he was actually smart and not corrupt (for the most part, compared to most others!)
  15. He just became a little mini replica of Donald, always on Shane's back, hanging around that kicthen set like a bad smell. It was like, get a life of your own Nick. You're a 20-something guy. I am not surprised they wrote him out in the end as they had clearly lost all interest in him. Shame as he was a decent enough character at the start.
