As a 'follow up' to previous polls concerning the storylines this poll is concerned with what you'd like to see in the show coming up and what you'd also like to see LESS of.

Think about how the show would move forward and what you feel it lacks.

Please keep the discussion polite.

Edited to Add: You can select more than one option for each question.

I would like to see a new family join the show. I'm talking about a proper/nuclear family. It needs to have a mum, dad and set of brothers/sisters. Oh how I miss the old days of the Sutherlands.

More family members for Irene!!! I said this in an Irene Robertst topic but she is a very iconic character and she needs some family. It is disgraceful that NONE of Irene's family had visited her in Summer Bay yet :/

I want more family orientated storylines and LESS crime storylines. I don't want Home and Away to completely abolish crime storylines (that would be unfair for some viewers) but they need a balance.

I couldn't agre more.

I really mss the whole Sutherland/Hunter family.

Which some of them might return to the Bay one day.

This family had so many different kind of relaionships. The best one being Max/Colleen friendsip.

I like big families. This one was really two + some extra relatives/ kids.. like Max Brodie.

My votes:

1). More family-oriented/feel good plots and a new stalker storyline. Who doesn't love a good old stalker storyline :P

2). A new family, a returning character (with a family possibly) and family members returning related to Alf and Irene

3). Love Triangles, 'Who's the Daddy' storyline and teen focused stories.

In the first section, not really any of the options. I would have liked family issues to be explored, but they don't really need to be feel good storylines. I want drama for the characters without the stalkers and revenge storylines. I want storylines like the Hunters got, or the Sutherlands or some of the characters in 2007 and 2008 (Geoff, Annie, Aden, Roman - the Nicole part).

I only want new characters that are really good developed from the start, everything from their secrets and families. And I also want a natural development of the characher during their stay on the show. It need to be a natural portrayal of personality and happenings, and not change in personality and behaviour just to fit the storylines.

I can like a storyline about revenge or illness, but the characters have to be developed during the storyline. And I don't want to see characters to pop in for revenge without a real good reason and they need to have more emotional, human and realistic reasons than Adam Sharpe, Geoffrey King, the Stalker or Mumma rose. And I also want the storyline to be more realistic and not include too drastic actions. For example Kelly/Amanda storyline, it could have been really good if it was toned more down and not so extreme. It should have been a more realistic storyline about sibling jealousy, betrayal and how that can push people in the wrong direction.

Funnily enough I ticked all the boxes in the "less" options! Lol. I mean, I love the show, but TPTB seem to be too focussed on one lot of characters and there is no follow up with other characters. And the unbelieveability of people getting over cancer in a week is just crazy. Noone can get over any major illness in such a short time!

I love the old school families that there used to be (Hunters, Sutherlands etc). Real biological/nuclear families...where noone cheats and noone does drugs to survive. Whatever happened to a mother and father having a couple of normal kids that just go to school and don't have drama/baggage? There are actually families out there like that!

I believe that every person and family do have baggage/history. But I think the point is what kind of baggage do they have, and how the writers are exploring the charachters' baggage and past.

I think it is exciting when they are digging really deep into "the baggage" and the characters history, we get to know the character better that way. It is far better to explore the characters, their past and personality than putting them in triangles all the time.

But the baggage don't have to be a criminal past without no depth or a lot of weird enemies. The Hunters, Sutherlands had their baggage too, but it was more "down to earth".

I would like to see a complete family move into The Bay as well, and that family could have a few foster children, I think the Sutherland and Hunter era was another golden era for the show like the Shane and Angel days. And have the children be like what the Hunters and Sutherlands and Parrishes and Roberts children were. I'd love to see a Lance and Martin/Damo and Shane type double act.

I ticked "same sex couple" even though I don't think they'd do it right, but hey, we can dream. What I've really been thinking about lately is Dan Baker, and how we never SAW him die, and how Leah deserves so much better than what she's getting lately. And if by some ironic twist he happens to wander in with amnesia and same-sex tendencies (amnesia can do that, who says it can't!?) so much the better :) (although I don't know how that would help Leah... maybe they could be best friends instead??) OOh he can bring Anthony Callea with him. That's just the kind of gimmicky thing Seven LOVES doing! Except last time I checked, I think channel 9 owned them both. Hmm... someone should look into that...

I think that the show would definitely benefit from some older characters too. But they have to be GOOD characters. Not just... well, the 30 something set that's moping around in love-triangle land... Yeah, I ticked "less love triangles" too.

I did not tick "stalker" but if Corey came back for another go at revenge it would certainly give Irene something to do. I think he died in jail or something, but again, I don't remember seeing it on screen therefore it may not have happened!!

Of course in my wildest most desperate and literally been having recurring dreams about it for years fantasies, I'd want Robbie back. I don't care if he'd be on his own. I don't care if he'd have to have split up with Tash, or abandon his child (I'd prefer if the kid came with so he had something to do, but that would probably imply Tash was dead and I don't think I'm okay with that). I don't even care that he'd never see Kim again (because THAT'S not going to happen, and I'd scratch the eyes out of anyone who suggested a recast... UNLESS it was for magical gay reasons... MAYBE then... but that is also never going to happen, so... ). I've been casually Facebook stalking Jason Smith for years (he knows, he's cool with it). He's mostly writing these days. He can write AND act at the same time! I have faith in him!! And I've been prodding him about it for years. He hasn't flat-out refused... So who do I need to prod around here to make it happen, huh?? WHO???

... I'm sorry, I got a little over-excited there. I'll calm down now and go write my two lines about today's actual episode...

EDIT: I should probably point out that Jason Smith has never said he WOULD come back to acting on Home and Away, that I recall, he's just met my occasional inquiries/stalkings with polite indifference. Class act :)
