Olé, olé, olé, oh…

…so H&A is off until the World Cup is over. Hopefully Heath and Bianca will take the opportunity to have a good hard look at themselves and cop on. Harley’s mam died, and Bianca can’t tolerate the heathspawn anywhere near her, so Heath is going to dump the child on some rellies. Ridiculous situation. Why did the baby’s ma send Harley away just before she popped her clogs?

Zac mistakenly confessed to Hannah that he ran over Tamara while drunk; it’s only a matter of time before he goes to YCPD. Oscar better face the music, and sharpish.

I can’t wait to see what adventures John and Jett have in the Diana boat. The orange jumpsuit brigade will no doubt be involved.

Let joy be unconfined

TBTG, Home and Away is back; we haven’t seen Brax, Jett and the gang since 2013. The elder Braxton has gone to jail for at least 10 years and the rest of them don’t know what to be at. Heath is pretending to be a grown-up; he even defended the medical profession at one point, which must be a first. Ricky is a basket case, and can’t handle her man being banged up at all.

Hannah is a nurse, apparently. She helped out when Josh arrived in hospital, thanks to his mam’s fondness for handguns. So that crowd are sticking around, Hannah, Oscar and Evelyn of the shocking attire.

Jett wants John to tell Marilyn he’s only mad about her. John doesn’t want to let Gina go. Eh, John, this is Summer Bay; you’re only expected to mourn for 8-10 episodes.

Vogue does Home and Away

…is on tonight (RTE Two, 9.55). We didn’t make the cut but I’m sure there are plenty of wonderful insights into the world of Summer Bay, or at least, some sunny scenes to warm us up on this cold November evening.

Details are here.

In the words of the woman herself,

Home and Away back next week and filming in London!

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.

Ooh, the writers of Home and Away are toying with our emotions, and no mistake. The Family Palmer were as happy as possible, and Jett was being as cute as possible, so of course something had to go wrong. Gina had some class of aneurysm. You know things are bad when you start seeing yourself as an apparition.

At least she remembered one of her other sons before disaster struck. I was half-expecting her to answer the phone with a “Xavier who?”. Poor Bandicoot and Hugo don’t get a look in.

Marilyn foresaw it all, of course. She’ll be feeling mega-guilty for days now.

Dex felt bad for taking it to the next level in the hospital. He’s obviously never seen Grey’s Anatomy. April, spurred on by the positive-thinking-vibes of her recent girls’ night, confronted him and wished him luck in the future. He just looked confused.


Do you want to be on telly, talking about Home and Away?

Well? Would you like to proclaim your love for H&A to the whole world, or at least, the Irish viewing public?

If so, and if you are between the ages of 18-24 (*sob*), leave a comment below to tell us, or email Orla at

25 years a-flamin’

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

Happy birthday to Home and Away! It’s 25 years today since it first aired. Back then, Alf was but a nipper, and Gawd hadn’t saved Ireland yet. Tell us what your favourite H&A moments are in the comments! My personal favourites are Saul’s cult (I said cult), and most recently, Sid in the ditch. Milco turning up was pretty good too.

In today’s episode, The Boize went to The City to fetch Kyle. They had to wear jackets for this. A serious operation requires serious clothing, or, at least, fewer vests. After some police action, and chats to Kyle’s mate, Brax and Heath got their man. Now, what will they do with him?

Bianca is a shambles. She fell asleep at work, then went straight to the next level with Adam, in order to ensure her gear supply doesn’t dry up.

Brax’s bad bud

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Adam is some piece of work. He’s feeding Bianca “drugs”, and told Heath it’s nothing to do with him. Eh, hello Adam? You’re obviously not a local.

What is it that attracts baddies to Summer Bay? No-one has much money. Maybe they like the beach.

Heath is concerned about Bianca, but can’t be bothered sticking around to help her, not when there’s a Braxton adventure to be had in The City. So he dumped his problems at Natalie’s door. She tried to explain that’s not how counselling works, but Heath was deaf to her protest. See ya, sucker, sez he.

I’d say Casey is raging he can’t go on the BBA (Big Braxton Adventure). At least he made up with his bezzie mate, Sasha.

Mr. JP (ah what ya got for me) provided some light relief when he made a show of Gina at school, by inviting her to lunch on bended knee. However, circumstances conspired against them, so they had to make do with dinner.
