  2. I guess it depends on how popular the character was and how long its been since they played it. I think if the character was just a guest, and then they come back as a different character but as a regular, then its not really a big deal (like Rohan). I mean I imagine acting jobs are quite limited in Australia as it is (hence why so many have appeared on both H&A and Neighbours), so if an audition comes up then they're going to go for it, regardless of whether or not they were on the show before. I think recasting is trickier as sometimes its so jarring (as Homeandawayfan pointed out), but if the character has been away then its fine. I didn't like VJ's recast as it felt too jarring and very 'Hollywood', where its obvious the actor is twenty-something but playing a teenager.
  3. I would've been happy for Ash to die lol, but I suppose they wouldn't kill both him and Billie. I also agree that Billie's death was very rushed, so it would've made more sense for her to die sooner or in a different way. I think Maggie almost dying would've been interesting. We would've got to see Ben struggle more sooner and also some more bonding between Ziggy/Coco.
  4. Not necessarily a storylines you'd like to see, but what would you like to see more (or less) of for the next season? Personally I'd like to see: - Less love triangles. Some of them are okay, but some felt very forced to me and like they came out of nowhere. I think especially amongst the teens - they feel thats the only way they can make drama. - Roo to get an actual storyline/purpose. A lot of the times she's just sort of there or on a break, and is just kind of floating in the background and offering support to the younger kids. Maybe she could foster or take over as principal if Maggie ends up leaving? - More teens. I don't mind the adult drama but do miss when there were a few more teens on the show (like when Romeo/Indi etc were there). I also think it would help with the friendships - I think part of the reason Bella seemed so isolated was because Raffy/Ryder were dating and so she didn't really have anyone to hang out with. I also think this could be a means for more fostering. - Less crime. I don't mean all crime (as it would put Colby out of a job...not that he does much anyway), but the Robbo stuff got very boring after a while and was dragged out way too long. I just don't think anyone cares anymore. - Allowing more characters to be single and follow passions/storylines outside of that. I think relationships are the go-to for drama, but they don't have to be. There's so many other interesting storylines or topics they could explore, without someone jumping from one relationship to the next. - Handling sensitive topics better and revisiting them. For example, mental health - I do think they did a good job with Ben's mental health storyline, but sometimes they wrap it up and its never mentioned again, or that character is never seen struggling again and magically seems fine. Its just not realistic.
  5. I agree - it felt like they just put them together when they did because Maddy/Josh were finally leaving, and there wasn't many other teens/young adults left on the show for them to have scenes with. I liked Nate and Tori but agreed. It felt a bit pointless after the build up for him to just leave - especially after the whole Riley thing. Another one is maybe Raffy and Ryder. She kind of liked him in the beginning but then he dated Coco instead.

  13. I don't have Prime but thats awesome. Hopefully it paves the way for more old episodes to become available! I agree that streaming is probably the best way to go about it.

  17. I was looking forward to Jett's return but it was a bit disappointing. He only really had scenes with John & Maz (I guess because everyone else he was friends with had left).
  18. I could see her coming back if it made sense for the storyline and was only a short stint...that and if it didn't interfere with her current career. Then again, I felt like her last appearance felt very final.
  19. I think H&A was (possibly) more popular in Ireland for a while. When some of the actors have come over to do club appearances etc, it seems they mostly go there? I think part of it could also be that Neighbours seems to get more promo (like some of the actors have been on This Morning etc to do interviews), where as H&A don't (possibly because they don't rely on the Channel 5 deal as much as Neighbours, so aren't as bothered about international promo). Nowadays I also think it could be because Neighbours is a bit more out there and willing to be more inclusive. (Which is probably why they have a big LGBT following)
  20. I think Ty was originally going to stay longer, but the actor got a place at some school so they wrote him out at his request? I think someone here mentioned that before and it makes sense judging from his Instagram, and the fact they wrapped it up quite quickly. Skye I think wasn't very well received...I like her at first but then they had her start getting involved with Tank, so I guess figured it was easier to just write her out then keep her around? I guess at the time there wasn't many people she was close to other than Tank either. Jordan I'm confused why he didn't stay longer as well. I thought he was quite well-liked but his exit seemed quite rushed. It seemed kind of silly to introduce him if he was only going to be there for a month.
  21. I agree, I thought that was odd tbh. She could agree for Irene to sign over her share of the diner (which would protect both of them really if something happens, not just Leah) but still persuade her to see if Bella would change her mind about testifying. Its not as if Leah couldn't of given Irene her share back if she avoids jail, or even if she does serve but does x amount of months/years and comes out. Its one thing to be optimistic but it puts their whole livelihoods on the line.

  23. Totally agree! I just hope they pace the storyline well and it doesn't just magically go away like Coco's eating disorder...which I don't think they've mentioned since. Hopefully they will continue doing it well though. I like what he said about how Ben's issues go way back and aren't just from the recent events.
