The early years had the most memorable villains


Recommended Posts

I have been re-watching the classic episodes of Home and Away on 7Plus as they are only available for 7 more weeks and watched the episode where Robert Perez burns down the Nash house with them inside and kidnaps Natalie. That could me thinking about how the early years had some of the great memorable villains. Saul Bennett, Dodge and Robert are easily my three top H&A villains in terms of their evilness. Even 20-25 years later, I still remember the reign of terror all three characters brought to the show. 

The "middle years", which I consider to be 2000 - 2010, had some memorable villains (i.e. Angie Russell, Sarah Lewis, Johnny Cooper, Mamma Rose, Eve Jacobsen), but to me, they still don't hold up to the nineties villains.

Don't get me wrong, we also had many equally forgettable villains in the early days (i.e. Nicholas Walsh, Zac the shark hunter), but I feel like the major villains such as three I mentioned above were more complex and well-rounded. The current villains just seem too frequent and most of them are two-dimensional, probably because the crime element is such a a huge aspect of the show now. 


What are your thoughts?

Dodge is the greatest villain hands down. He was even more deranged in his return in 1995.

To be honest I would put Brad Cooper ahead of Robert Perez.

Brad was one sick individual.

Both were psychotic, but Brad was a twisted individual to say the least.
