  2. It's certainly looking good so far. The only niggle is the season numbering - they seem to be categorising them by each batch of 200 that they're uploading, rather than the actual seasons. So we've now got the last 29 episodes of 1988 under Season 2 (1989), which finishes with episodes that aired in September 1989. If they then do the same thing again with "Season 3" (touch wood) then we're talking a huge offset. It may not matter much to the more casual of viewers of course, but I think it would make far more sense to include those extra 20-30 episodes within each season so that it's all in sync and the season finales are in the right place. Whether it's a technical limitation or some random company policy I don't know, but it may be worth noting in any feedback so they can take it into consideration. But other than that, it's all good! If another batch is added then it will start off with Dannii Minogue's first ep (#400), which might be a bit of a draw for some.
  3. Bevan said at the time "The actor who played the first Flynn wanted out of the show so we were forced to recast, as we felt the character was too important at that point to lose."
  4. I couldn't say whether it would have affected the actual part of the beach they filmed on or not (given they were at the Northern end in the Pilot anyway), it was more their help with the logistics of filming in the area. It's just one possible explanation as to why it wasn't very beach-centric for a while anyway - I think they may have pulled out after the Pilot, but it could have been later (it was a conversation I had in-person over 12 years ago so it's a bit sketchy). Obviously the surf club itself didn't become a feature in the show until 1989 anyway. Wow. They are identical, got to be the same one surely... unless that particular table was very popular and a common sight in furniture stores for many years
  5. We sure do The frontage has changed quite considerably, but it's still the same house. https://www.backtothebay.net/locations/staceys-apartment/ (thanks to @QUIET ACHIEVER for the pics)
  6. Can certainly see your logic layout wise, but the arch at the back of the room at the Nash House was a lot smaller - so I wouldn't say it's a reused set piece on this occasion. I was told that originally Seven had an agreement with Palm Beach SLSC (the 'posh' one at the southern end of the beach) to assist in their shooting, but they soon changed their minds and gave Seven the flick. So they later went up to North Palm Beach SLSC and the rest is history. Perhaps the lack of beach scenes early on had something to do with that...

  10. Episode 5 is now online, and to mark the beginning of Mental Health Week, Jason talks to Rohan Nichol and Script Exec Louise Bowes about Ben's depression storyline. Acast Spotify iTunes Sarah Roberts and Zoe Ventoura will also be featuring on a future episode:
  11. Excuse the cross-promotion in a thread for current eps, but just a reminder for any UK viewers who needs more of a H&A fix this weekend: https://www.backtothebay.net/news/2019/10/01/home-and-away-1988-season-on-amazon-prime-uk/ It's coming
  12. It certainly is a great thing for UK fans of the show, and it's definitely a step in the right direction! Of course it would have been nice to see a terrestrial television repeat so that it's free for all in the UK, but I think we all knew that was going to be pretty unlikely. It is however only a small step so far. As someone has already mentioned to us on Twitter, it's debatable as to whether 200 episodes (which don't even make up the whole season) is a big enough draw for people to start a H&A marathon, or sign up to Prime video if they're not a member already. If Amazon are indeed testing the water before adding more, then it might be something of a Catch 22 situation. I think all we can hope for is that the word is spread, and the episodes perform well enough for Amazon to see it's a worthwhile thing for them. There is a 'Send us Feedback' link at the top of the H&A page which might be useful to let Amazon know that you'd like to see more H&A, and I see a couple of 5 star reviews have already been added so there's that option too. Of course they might already have more in the pipeline, and they're just releasing on a gradual basis as they work through them, but we just don't know at this moment in time. I've spent the last week firing off emails to see if anyone is willing to answer this (which is the reason I'd delayed posting in here), but we haven't had anyone able to as yet. That said, we need to see it as a positive move I think and keep our fingers crossed. It did cross my mind whether they'd thought of looking into it, given the presence of other Aussie dramas like All Saints, Rafters, McLeod's Daughters etc., but it is still quite a surprise as others have said.
  13. Episode 4 is now up, and continues discussion of the online grooming storyline with guests Lynne McGranger and Courtney Miller. Acast Spotify iTunes There isn't, but Emily Symons will appear on an upcoming episode alongside Lucy:
  14. It survived the transition from the Beachside Diner to the 'Den' half of the new building—and the subsequent Diner/Den merging—but disappeared along with the jukebox after the 2010 fire. It was re-introduced to the current set in 2014.
  15. Wish I could help - Mondays and Tuesdays do tend to be the better days, though I don't think they were at Palmy yesterday so you never know.
