  1. Some people do move around a lot. They get opportunity after opportunity and just go wherever it takes them. There's no reason why Frank couldn't have went to London, then back to Aus, then back to America.
  2. The 2nd shop was very early 90s indeed. It was the trend at the time, I remember it in my town and nearby towns, to modernise everything and make it "90s". "Old fashioned" was out. After a few years the novelty wore off, people began to see all this modernizing as bland - everything ended up looking the same. And people wanted "traditional" back. The 3rd store was definitely more traditional and more similar to the original General Store that Ailsa had in the 80s.
  3. The ring is a place for a mutual fight among two consenting opponents. For some reason I was just randomly accused of insulting someone's mother when AFAIK I was talking about how an element of the show had changed So obviously I'm gonna defend myself against that, I think that's quite understandable. Defending yourself isn't the same as fighting but either way it was over hours ago, I don't see the point in dragging it up again. Let's get back to quick questions!
  4. I don't see how that's any sort of comment on how you were raised. The comment was on the logic that because something was ok for YOU, then it must be fine. I don't see how that's remotely related to how your mother raised you. I don't even know how she raised you in order to comment on it!
  5. Good, because I didn't give one.
  6. Talk about missing the point. I am talking about in specific cirumstances when adults realize they were in the wrong but it's still the child who has to apologize. That CLEARLY doesn't apply at all to Karen and Revhead because Alf and Ailsa never came to realize they were in the wrong (because they weren't). I don't know why you have to pretend to misunderstand people's posts just so you can bring up your favourite rinse/repeat subjects. We all know what I said had nothing to do with the examples you gave. As usual you take someone else's point and warp it into a point they were never making and then apply it to a storyline or example that is completely unrelated and nothing to do with anything. And so am I because that's nothing to do with what I was talking about. I was talking about times when an adult comes to realize they were wrong but it's still the child who has to apologize for being rude (even though it was only their "rudeness" - i.e. daring to talk back - that made the adult realize they were wrong at all). The whole "it did me no harm therefore it's fine" nonsense is like the logic of a 4 year old. The inability to see past the end of one's nose to realize that maybe not everyone in the world has the exact same life, circumstances, surroundings, as you seems to escape some people.
  7. You're arguing against a point nobody was making, but then that's nothing new for you.
  8. From what I remember, Barbara was completely glossed over during the whole reveal of Seb's identity and Donald accepting him as Alan's son. She is extremely briefly seen in a flashback Donald has about Alan's death, around the time of discovering who Seb is. I can't remember if she is mentioned in passing, but unless I'm mistaken there's certainly never any discussion about them meeting which is ridiculous when you think about it. I like to think that it all happened off-screen, at least. Barbara deserved to meet Alan's son (her grandson).
  9. One thing that strikes me about the early years of the show is how attitudes have changed towards kids "respecting" their elders (i.e. adults have always to be respected even if they're wrong). Thankfully this rather outdated attitude isn't so prevalent today. In early episodes teenage characters often had to apologize to adult characters for being "rude" even when said adult had been acting totally wrongly and the teenager was just standing up for what was right. Even when the adult realized they were in the wrong, and it was because of the kid being "rude" that they realized it, the kid still had to apologize. It just seems silly now. I don't care if you are 14 or 40, if you are right, you're right; and if you are wrong, you're wrong.
  10. It's great isn't it! I'm not saying this to be rude but instead of (or as well as!) asking on here, the best thing to do is ask Amazon because the more interest people show in the episodes the more chance they will add more. They're not gonna be scouring H&A forums to see if people are asking about more episodes, but if they get people actually asking them about it then it will increase our chances.
  11. Again, Rebecca being Alf's niece is quite prominent in the late 90s. Which I think is good continuity and makes a lot of sense because, unlike say Bobby or Seb, Rebecca actually grew up knowing Alf as her uncle and he watched her grow up from a baby and little girl. So I think it's quite good that Uncle/Niece is their primary relationship and how they treat each other.
  12. Rebecca being Alf's niece is actually mentioned quite a lot during those years.
  13. Seems pretty obvious they are full of bullpoop. Thanks for the update Dan. You should let us know as and when these communications happen rather than wait until someone asks. Make us feel like we're all part of the same community rather than being kept on a "need to know" basis.
  14. She was just lonely. In contrast to her cold nature she did in fact yearn to have children (which is all the more aggravating that she rejected Bobby at every turn although she did have her twisted reasons).
  15. It does seem to have been timed that way. Sophie's last few episodes seemed to be about her coming "full circle", she's ready to move on to a new life and all the drama is behind her. Maybe the writers felt they just didn't want to rake up all the past at this point as it would be a step backward for Sophie so close to her exit. Personally I think it was a very wasted opportunity, it would have given her even more closure. It could also have shown how much Sophie has grown. And it would be closure for the viewer too. There's also a chance that the writers/producers wanted Karen and Sophie to overlap (hence it being so close in the end) but either one or both of the actors' schedules and/or contract situations simply didn't make it possible for Karen to come a little earlier or Sophie to stay on an extra week or so. Whichever one is subjectively more probable, they're both possible, and we'll never know for sure unless someone can ask one of the writers involved and even then they might not remember.
