Death by Posting! (11/12)

  1. I always loved the original Leah, her first couple of years basically until Vinnie died. She was almost like Marilyn in a lot of ways, a bit clumsy, very chatty but she became much more serious from 2003-onwards
  2. Hi, long time lurker and recent occasional poster!

    I am re-living the Early Years and currently going through the 1990 discussion on the forum. Enjoying your posts. However, there are a lot of posts about uploading episodes, and I'm wondering if that really is a thing of the past?

  3. Does anyone know the song that was playing a few episodes ago when Ailsa first heard the news report against her before the ad break - she is in the diner kitchen listening to the radio and the song is being played on the jukebox.
  4. I've been trying to find the song played when Mandy left with no luck, such a great song.
  5. I think the new 'Early Years' represents the show up until the year 2000 for me. But then there's also that period between 2001-2004 where it still felt like H&A before it totally changed format in 2005.
  6. ^It looks different from the original design but still clearly recognizable and fits in with the interior sets. I think they should definitely bring it back. They could then have scenes take place in the front garden or sitting on that terrace. Also I assume that the view of the beach from the front door is still as beautiful as ever.
  7. How were you fooled by that? It's nonsense, particularly if you follow Alan and Lynne on social media, most people would know immediately that it's fake because it's so out of character.
  8. It survived it but Imo the show missed that familiarity, especially when it was during a period of high change (2000-2001). With Ailsa and the Stewart House both gone within the space of 6 months it altered a dynamic within the show. And I personally wish that the set was still around and Alf was still living in it now along with Roo and whoever else they may have taken in. It probably would have become as iconic as Alf and Summer Bay House. Losing the Stewart House and Ailsa coincided with a shift Alf's character too and he's seemed quite unstable since then I think.
  9. When I started watching again this year I was confused by what was going on with Leah's house. I just assumed that there would be zero chance of them getting rid of such a well established and recognized set and that they were all at Summer Bay House temporarily. Like you, I really like the family dynamic at SBH and it feels the most 'right' than it has in years. But I definitely see the old 'Nash House' as significant to the show. Getting rid of older sets whether they be outdoor or interiors all help to chip away at the continuity and familiarity which is a negative. They need to renovate it and Leah could sell it on to another family perhaps.
  10. Back to basics? That's when the show went off the rails and was veering even further away from the basic Home and Away format Imo
  11. I was looking at the exterior of the Stewart Store and to me it looks like a building in the middle of a street that has been cornered off by the art department (basically erecting a partition across the pavement). Whereas on screen I always got the impression that it was a building all on its own somewhere across the road from the beach.
  12. ^I hope so! It would be great if they uploaded entire seasons on YouTube/Netflix at some point in the future but I'm happy with what we have at the moment. It's nice to watch all of the episodes in sequence without having the option to jump about into the 'future'. I'm still a couple of weeks behind but I've been having binge sessions and I'm really enjoying it all. I do agree that some of the female/male dynamics are generalised and cringe worthy sometimes though. They do that a lot though, it's like whenever a religious person is in the show they are seen as 'strange/weird' or the nerdy types are always wearing glasses or carry a bit of extra weight on them. I hate those stereotypes, it's embarrassing really. I find Shane and Angel interesting and enjoyable to watch and it's not just nostalgia I don't think. The chemestry between them just make those scenes so engaging. It's interesting to see the 1993 season draw to a close as we gear up towards the 1994 season. It's a real treat to be at this point in the show because I say it every year but I never thought that 7TWO would reach 1994, I just never thought we'd see the 90's repeated again. Long may it continue. It's really nice to watch something that instantly takes you back to that time and all the memories that go with it. It reminds me of what Australia was like in the 90's.
  13. I'm really behind at the moment... up to 1350. Just wanted to say how much I'm enjoying having Irene in the show! Also very pleased that the storyline with Morag is over. Morag was great but I was getting so bored of Ailsa's part because I felt like it was just too repetitive. Glad to see Adam's grief and guilt has been written realistically and continued on at a fairly realistic pace.
  14. Obviously they wanted to keep him in the show otherwise they would have got rid of him whenever they wanted. He was a popular character, people liked that he was in H&A. I've enjoyed his storylines so I'm glad that he's there, I presume the feedback they received back in 1993 proved that people liked having him around. Plus I think he's a pretty good child actor.
  15. It looks like the shape of the house has changed? There used to be more of an 'L' shape wasn't there? It matches the interior now more though.
