A few wee thoughts

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

I am very slack on the H&A watching these days, but I did catch it today. It was a good one.

It went like this:

Irene: Come back and see us soon, Spencer.
Spencer: I will, yeah.

Adios Spencer

Then Roo and the Doc busted Alf out of hospital (am unsure why he’s there) and they all went to some class of military memorial service.

And Alf unwisely got his feet very wet spreading ashes in the sea. I’d say the Doc is v. unimpressed.

Alf and ashes

Alf’s got a new job

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

Alf has copped on to himself and got a bar job in Sober Lane in Cork. All those years honing his customer service skills in the Bait Shop have finally paid off.

Stay out of our marriage

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Casey felt sorry for Andy because he’s homeless and keeps making mistakes. He found him sleeping in the gym. He is going to lend money to him to get him off the hook with the drug dealers as he doesn’t want Josh getting bashed again, I reckon.

Denny and Casey had a romantic meal but had a bit of a row when he stood up for Andy Barrett while Denny thinks he’s nothing but trouble. Alf told her to talk to Casey and sort things out.

Leah is worried about Nate and told Sophie to stop leaning on him so heavily. Sophie pushed back and told her to mind her own business. That wasn’t enough though, she wants to move out and doesn’t feel happy living under the same roof as Leah. She seems to have Nate wrapped around her little finger. He went to the school and told her to mind her stay out of their marriage. Served.

Roo is still pressurising Marilyn over the wedding but they managed to sort it out and she asked Roo to be her bridesmaid. Hopefully that will be the end of the wedding hassling storyline for a while.

Brax and Ricky are going to try for a baby and got hot and steamy in the shower. Given the summer bay time warp, she’s probably pregnant by now and will be in labour by the end of the month.

One last surf

One last surf

Well, that was amazing. In one episode, Connie came around, handed Darcy over to  Heath, Bianca showed up, and they all disappeared off to The City, never to be seen again. It was like an Irish wake in Famine times. “When will I see you again?”, “Ah sure, I don’t know”. I’m fairly sure The City is not that far away.

Ricky showed her true colours as a Home and Away aficionado when she used a theme song lyric to berate Connie, “you know they belong together”. Her guilt trip worked wonders, and Connie agreed that the Heathcliff Braxton family would be better as one household.

The Boyz went for ONE LAST SURF. Kyle was hanging back, leaving the original crew to it, until Brax muttered “You coming or what?”. They all had a topless pow-wow on the beach, then Brax, Heath and Casey went for a surf. Why did Kyle get topless if he wasn’t even going to swim? And it looked like The Boyz were only body-boarding anyway, he could’ve managed that.

Back at the gaff, Phoebe stood up to Chezza, who just shrugged. Harley wore an amazing hat for his final scenes.

Now that the Braxton numbers have been decimated, Brax has reluctantly agreed to have a baby with Ricky. He needs more troops to continue his reign of the Bay. He’ll be the next Alfred Stewart in no time.

Stewart-Barrett face-off

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Too much madness in that episode:

  • Phoebe not confessing that all she is trying to do is get herself and Kyle a gaff
  • Roo not telling anyone why she went to South America and pretending it was because she needs her own space
  • Marilyn not wanting to move out of the caravan park and live with her fiancé and pretendy son
  • Hannah doing some weeding on the farm! Ok, that’s normal, which is what makes it weird
  • Kyle doing some amazing jaw-jutting aka the most Kyle face ever
  • Andy Barrett being scared by Alf

Avoiding the Braxtonverse

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

Phoebe wants to get a flat for herself and Kyle. She arranged it by getting Matt to pretend to be a reference, she didn’t want to have to rely on a Brax reference. Then she met the landlord on the sly without telling Kyle. He put 2+2 together when he saw them and thinks something is going on. Things will get worse when he finds out that she robbed money from the till for the deposit.

Josh has realised his relationship with Maddy is going nowhere, he must be sick of the moaning, which will be twice as bad now she has to to repeat the year in school. He met her on the pier to give her the heave-ho but before he could get the words out she was telling him that she is going to change and she needs him. He’ll have to put up with her for now so.

Alf and Roo had World War 3 in the kitchen while John, Marilyn and Jett tried to stay out of the way. Alf wasn’t impressed with her going to South America without telling him but she still hasn’t explained why she went there. Mysterious.

Bonkers Braxtons

Monday, September 15th, 2014

There were many displays of mad Braxton behaviour in today’s episode:

  • Darcy broke her arm, so everyone went to the hospital. I broke my arm when I was 11 and there wasn’t an aunt or uncle in sight.
  • Heath didn’t explain the scenario properly, so Dr. Accent thinks he is bating lumps out of Darce.
  • Brax nearly bashed Casey because he himself doesn’t want to have a baby, thus proving to himself that he’s not a fit father, but in fact, A DOG.

Also:

  • The Braxtons were in hospital yet again. I wonder if a month goes by in Summer Bay without a Braxton injury?

Not much else happened, really. Alf wants to know why Chris called the cops on the Barretts. I’m sure he’ll get the full story shortly.

Roo riddle

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

Home and Away is like an episode of House at the moment; Roo picked up a virus somewhere on her travels, and it’s up to Alf and his merry bunch to find out why. According to Colleen, she left Vegas weeks ago. Our money is on a Martha-and-Hugo visit, maybe with some people smuggling thrown in, for good measure?

Darcy and Heath are on their best behaviour, ahead of his custody claim. But Sophie (dressed as a squaw) asked Heath for a meeting, to discuss school matters. What’s that about?

Ricky still wants a bub.

Spencer and Chris miraculously found Andy’s drugs, under his van. They should work for YCPD drugs squad.

Worried Alf

Worried Alf

Roo is still in Summer Bay General and her condition looks to be worsening. She had a seizure after Alf told her to wake up. Rebellious to the last.

Casey and Denny are a bona fide thing now, he even went to the farm for dinner. He also slept in his car as he wouldn’t be able to control himself if he went back for his displaced car keys. Eh what?

Chris is taking a duvet day as he’s finding Denny’s hasty new coupling a bit troubling.

Zac pretended he and Oscar were going on a pre-arranged camping trip, so he wouldn’t have to have dinner with Andy. I’d be inclined to do the same thing.

Eff you, doc

Monday, September 1st, 2014

Doctors are the most abused characters in Summer Bay. Any time someone’s in hospital, their relatives show up and slag off their medic’s professional skills until such time as the injured party miraculously recovers. Alf had a go at Dr. Accent today for being late for work. He was on call, but his phone was mysteriously on silent mode, something the good doc swore he never does. He’s blaming the ex-wife and no wonder, with her erstwhile unreliable druggy ways.

Roo is still unconscious, the victim of an as-yet-unnamed virus. Maddie is taking it hard, so Josh left her in the hospital to go off house riding with Evie. Unusually, this physical exertion didn’t end up with a topless youth in a hospital bed, but rather with an illicit smooch. What will Maddie say? Probably not too much, as she is leaning on Spencer for support and he is currently girlfriend-free. Handy.

Ricky wants a baby, and Brax doesn’t. He’s afraid the child will turn out to be a DOG like Danny, and Darryl himself apparently. Like all Brax decisions, this one is rooted in martyrdom.
