Summer Bay’s Sexiest…

Wednesday, August 7th, 2013

…is the name of a series of episodes, currently on Channel 5 at 6:30 (and Channel 5 + 1 at 7:30). Roo the Ledgebag lived up to her (his?) name and let us know.

Today’s episode was Aden and Belle’s wedding. Ah it was gas, look.

Not really living up to the name

Tea bags and tofu

Monday, July 29th, 2013

“I don’t want to marry you” was how April greeted Dexter’s pending proposal. She loves him too much to get married apparently. What’s the rush anyway, is what Indi and Sid were asking him, sure they have loads of time before the need to settle down.

Indi wishes she hadn’t gotten married to Romeo so young. She says it put extra pressure on their relationship and cost them a year, when they broke up, and she’d do anything to have that time back again. He’s still alive and out there now, I wonder if he’ll make a reappearance before he snuffs it? Maybe he’ll come back as a ghost and haunt the beach, riding phantom waves every morning.

Marilyn is moving out of John’s after Roo and Harvs staged an intervention. They told her that she was getting too close to John, again. There is no reason for her to still be living there, given that his back is better now. She moved back into the Caravan Park so they had better stock up on tea bags and tofu.

Casey is on the jar because Tamara left him. He should head off to Sid’s ditch and drink himself into next week, or head to Angelo’s and drink five shots like Brax did when Charlie died.

Gaeilgeoirs in the Bay

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

Friend of my heart, sez Charlie, when she saw Brax’s Irish tattoo. It turns out she’s been attending Irish classes in the afterlife, with Peig Sayers and Miley from Glenroe. “Go back to Ricky”, arsa Charlie, agus chuaigh sé.

What about the gúna on Charlie though? Desperate yoke. There must be an abundance of fabric in the Home and Away wardrobe department or something, huge dresses are all the rage.

Ricky should get a job in the hospital, whispering life back into the dying. How will this pair reconcile their differences, and how will Ricky get back into The Boize’s good books?

Spenca are keeping their new romance under wraps for the mo. Militant Maddie has a cause now anyway, she’s going to fight the injustice that is Bianca’s demotion.

Casey’s out

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

Now, what happened there? Not a whole lot really.

Tamara was discharged from hospital, under the watchful eye of Kyle B. Casey got out of jail on account of the real baddie being caught, so Kyle broke the news to him that Tamara remembers nothing. Casey did some staring.

Ghost Charlie was knocking around again, but still only in Brax’s brain, while Sid was going at him with the electric paddles. Wouldn’t it be amazing if Brax was possessed by Ghost Charlie, and joined YCPD as Officer Brarlie?

If Brax does COME BACK TO US, I can’t see him bring too interested in Ricky after being in the loving embrace of Ghost Detective Charlotte Buckton. Unless the copper selflessly tells him to do so.

The Grand Finale

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

Adam’s criminal warehouse was like something out of Homeland. Brax ran in blind to rescue Ricky, even though he knew it was a trap. Adam was waiting for him and shot him in the belly, the low-down dirty rat. “Now I get to watch you die”, Adam said. I wasn’t sure if I was watching the wrong show, maybe this was Love/Hate and not Home and Away.

Cue Brax’s dream, him standing on top of a cliff, looking out to sea. It reminded me of Alf going on his spirit walk as the Aboriginal man years ago after an operation. Ricky called an ambulance for Brax but he was too busy zoning out and dying to pay attention to what was happening in the real world.

They managed to get him to the hospital and April and Dr Sid got to work on him. Heath turned up at the hospital to give Ricky a serve then went off at Dex and April for not being able to predict the future. Ricky got interviewed by the baldy nameless cop and dobbed on her bro. Casey and Kyle should be in the clear now.

Adam managed to walk into the hospital during the night and knocked Heath out with a wrench. Adam was about to kill Brax when ghost Charlie appeared in his dream. She told him to wake up, his eyelids fluttered open for a second, but it didn’t matter. Adam injected some stuff into the patient causing him to go into arrest. Dex disturbed Adam and Heath tackled him, but it could be too late for Darryl. Only ghost Charlie can save him now I reckon.

Zac is in trouble over Holly’s sex attack claims which appeared in the local news. He’s been suspended from school and had a rock thrown through his window. Maddie confronted Holly again but she remains unrepentant over her treatment of Zac.

I loved Alf’s “no flamin worries” and Jett’s “strewth” in yesterday’s episode. He’s developing into a proper Aussie bloke under the old man’s influence.

Brothers in the Bush

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

For some mad reason, Casey and Kyle went out to the Bush to sort out their differences. They agreed they are better off without Danny THE DOG, and Kyle swore off Tamara. They returned to the Bay after a night hitching, because Casey locked the keys in Indi’s gym car.

Indi fired Casey; she’s sick of being abandoned. Casey ignored the firing and showed up for work as usual. Luckily Indi didn’t argue, as she is going mad with grief.

Brax, now that all the Braxtons are sorted, told Ricky he likes her. Cue disaster, and possible appearance of Ghost-Charlie at long last.



Stud academy

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

Jett has been getting lady advice from John and Liam, unfortunately it was conflicting advice. John told him to get out in the middle of the disco and mingle while Liam recommended playing it cool and maintaining an air of mystery. Liam managed to save the day by getting Sasha and Rosie to dance with him, making the other girls jealous. It all worked well and he was the belle of the ball.

Kyle and Casey managed to restrain Nelson and bring him to the YCPD station. Casey was still very ungrateful, despite the help that Kyle gave him. The cops took a statement from Tamara and told her that she’ll have to testify in the manslaughter case against Nelson. Kyle has his own case coming up, with Tamara and Casey acting as witnesses for the prosecution, so he could do with getting on their good side.

Tamara went to Sash and thanked her for helping her and Casey. Sasha feels like it wasn’t meant to be between her and Case, must mean that “the universe” didn’t want it to happen. The universe seems to be responsible for an awful lot of what happens in the Bay.

Who is the new cop in the station? He seems far more efficient that the old crew. Jack and Charlie would have messed this case up by now.

Here is a question for all the viewers. Where is Leah? Adam is dead and his son Jamie is in jail. Surely the coast is clear now and she can return to the Bay?

Heath overboard

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

Well that was pretty climactic. Jamie spent the episode fishing and filling Heath with drink, two mates having a bonza time. Only once Adam gave the word he whacked Heath across the noggin and dumped his unconscious body in a lifeboat with a hole in it. Heath had better wake up soon or hope that the current leaves him on a desert island before the boat sinks, Robinson Crusoe style.

Brax took a poll of public opinion in the town r.e. Jamie and Adam. Those surveyed included John, Kyle and Natalie. The results were most unsatisfied with the behaviour of the bad boy father and son combo. Brax reluctantly agreed to pay heed and told Adam to sling his hook. Something tells me that he won’t go down without a fight.

Brax was full of Charlie melancholy and noticed that he had a tattoo dedicated to her on his hand. He does like Nat and her nosiness but she can’t live up to a good old fashioned dose of Charlie face. He’s worried that she may end up dead like his ex so he’s dumped her for her own good. It’s never easy being a Braxton.

RIP Rocco

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

Poor Baby Rocco; he didn’t even live long enough to get his first tattoo. His parents are understandably shaken up; I predict a breakup and a return to bad-boy form for Heath.

Brax decided not to tell Casey about Rocco’s demise. He reckons Casey has plenty on his plate, he’s in hospital and the police want to arrest him for breaking bail. An unidentified cop (where’s Watson?) was very skeptical of Brax’s tale of kidnap and rescue. Natalie soon corroborated his story though. That was her last act of girlfriendliness, however, as she broke it off with Brax. Her reasons were that she didn’t want to deal with all the shootings, kidnappings, and general life in the Braxton clan. If only Charlie had been so sensible.

Gina is up in arms against Marilyn, for seducing John. The only thing is that Marilyn didn’t do it. She can’t help it if her bouffant hair and friendly ways attract the menfolk. Roo put Gina straight so hopefully she and Marilyn can be friends again.

As Alf pointed out, John has a lot to answer for when he returns to the Bay.
