1993 Episode Discussion

Hence he would have been charged with manslaughter as opposed to murder, along with committing arson, and of course the other crimes he committed such as theft and etc.

Amazing to think he only served about 6 years of his sentence considering the serious nature of the crimes he committed. He must have been a 'model prisoner' when he was in jail to get an early release as I assume he was paroled.

It was actually 5, according to dialogue. He must have either behaved or spent a great deal of time on remand before sentencing.

There have also been no mentions of Alf's parents since it was established in 1988 they were off on a touring vacation.

But it was nice to hear Donald talk about the fact he wrote some manuscripts and always struggled to get them published. Was this the first mention of this?

Alf went to see his folks in 1995 after running over Angel. And c.2002. Morag mentioned their father Gordon had died of Alzheimers (or at least alluded to it) during Alf's brain tumour/Ailsa ghost story arc. Gordon was also mentioned by Colleen, wishing he was here and Morag saying he'd be about 90 if still alive.

And does anyone else find it funny how Shane waxing his board in the titles segways into Luke rubbing suntan cream on Roxy? ^_^

If the writers in the last year had remembered that Bobby was meant to wear glasses maybe she would have seen that log

Just to confirm that the Early Years airings are indeed continuing over Christmas as they did last year. Which also means our timeline (spoiler alert) as to when the major events of the season air

Here's a little something from the archive that may be of interest regarding Bobby/Nicolle:

I know all of this as do most others on here. Like with my post about Lynne McGranger playing drunk Irene, I'm discussing the show up to this point in the The Early Years. :) I don't mean to sound rude but I don't know why you keep replying to posts with "spoilers" about things years ahead. Maybe you think we don't know these facts?

Irene is staying full time, very happy but FIn doesn't look happy. A bit confused about that :/

I love her friendship with Sally. They formed a strong bond since day one and love her calling her "toots!"

Greg is so annoying me at the moment. Not a great example he's setting for Sam at the moment.

^ It's a pet name like buggerluigs, or Girlie (for any given female under 30 she encounters)

But I think it's still the same era!.

I see 1993 as a whole new era even before Blake leaves and Angel rocks up. It's a brighter sunnier look and the action moves at a slightly faster pace. We know what kind of stamp Des Monaghan left and what stamp Andrew Howie will put on the next two seasons.

^ New credits, New era. I like them.

Looking back from a 2014 perspective, the black credits stand the test of time better. But at the time (1993) they were looking dated. Pastel colours were in (just look at the t-shirts on the show!). The 1993 credits fitted the period and at the time of the change they had a wow-factor.

I agree, I see the change in credits as the start of a new era - which is good in some ways and not so good in others. It's already a vastly different show than it was in 1988 (scarily so). But there are still so many things true to the roots of the show, thankfully.

I love Irene calling Sally "toots"! It's so cute. Love Irene and Sally's growing friendship in general.
