Grilling me like a cheese sandwich

Monday, April 7th, 2014

John was simultaneously accommodating Harvey and avoiding Roo’s questions; until she barged up to his house and told her husband to leave the Bay and leave everyone in peace. Good advice.

Sasha’s run for school captain got off to a bad start; Matt and the other students drowned out her speech by chanting Tamara’s name instead. Not since the days of Kirsty and Jade have students been so passionate about school politics.

Denny was about to leave the Bay when Evelyn demanded a tete-a-tete. They’ll be devoted sisters before you can say “strike me flamin’ handsome”.

He was a dog

Da Braxton’s on the scene. In an amazing coincidence, while Casey was talking to the school counsellor, Heath was visiting  their father in jail, despite not having seen him in 12 years. Never mind Kirstie and Jade, the Braxton boys must have some kind of psychic connection.

Da Braxton is a gruff Sean-Connery look-a-like. Heath has High Hayley checking out his father’s legal records, in the hope that a release might be on the cards. Brax and Casey were delighted when Da went to jail, but Heath is more stupid and so sees him in a more favourable light.

Isn’t it a bit mad that all the Braxtons call Darryl, Brax?

What do you foresee for Da Braxton? I think he’ll have a dalliance with Marilyn, and a showdown with Alf (who is on his way to the Bay, yahoo!). Whatever happens, I’d say he and his amazing moustache are in for some good storylines.

In other news, Hayley is running around looking for Liam, and Leah’s not impressed. She asked Brax to help sort it out.

Ruby is going full steam ahead with the surf shop plans, despite warnings from Romeo, Leah and Indi.

Car marts and dark arts

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

Liam’s jam/biro scars seemed to clear up between the first scene and the car auction. He got a bit of a land when Bianca tried to get him to buy a family car for when they start a family in the future.Liam isn’t ready to put his rock star past behind and bought another bike, much to Bianca’s chagrin.

April is organising a list of potential take it to the next level dudes. She met a bloke called Jonathan at the auction, who asked her to go to the formal with him. Could he be the one? Apparently not, she told him she’s not ready to move on from Dex yet. It’s between Xavier and Heath at the minute. Bianca is not impressed with her hanging around with Heath. Given how she’s going through a rebellious phase I fear she’ll opt for the bad boy. This good girl gone bad storyline reminds me of when Jade went off the rails and organised a sit in.

Marilyn organised a girly lunch for Irene with Colleen and Roo. Irene thanked the girls for standing by her during her cancer trials. What did she expect them to say, “I hear you’re sick so stay out of our way until you’re better”? They decided to invoke the dart arts by doing a tarot card reading. Unsurprisingly it predicted that somebody will die. Who could it be? Colleen lost the plot and Irene looked worried, so worried that she decided to make a will.

Summer Bay’s most loved

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

Well, we asked and you answered. Unsurprisingly, the most popular person in the Bay is none other than everyone’s favourite galah, Mr. Alf Stewart.

There were some surprises though. For example, Aden and Belle made the top ten. I’d say it was on account of their ridiness. Belle in particular was a bit moany, no?

The no-voters were Brodie, Shelley, Rebecca, Jade, Max, Rachel, Hyde, Roxy, Saul.

Cat show at Mangrove River

Monday, October 11th, 2010

So, Miles told Leah ’twas him who helped Veej write to Elijah.  Leah went mental, then calmed down and called around to the caravan park with a confession.  She’s been writing to Elijah every day since he left.  Where in the name of God did she get the time to do that?  No wonder she’s so flustered.

All this talk of Elijah makes me think he might be coming back.  Normally when someone leaves the Bay, they’re never/rarely heard of again.  For example, Dani, Jade, Kirsty, Cassie, Rhys, Shelly, Tasha, Geoff, Robbie, and the list goes on.

In another unusual H&A move, no-one has found out about Hugo’s money.  Well, Charlie knows, but it’s not public knowledge.  What’s that about?  Anyway well done to the writers for not following their usual path!

Rhys Sutherland

Monday, January 4th, 2010

Given that we’ve no new episodes to discuss this week, I thought it was time to delve into the archives again and examine another character from the Bay’s glorious history.

If Rhys had an anger meter it would go up to 11, and rarely drop below 10. He moved to the bay with his wife Shelly and his family many years ago. They took over the caravan park. Rhys looked a bit like a fish and was a pretty wooden character. I could never figure out why Shelly went out with him.

Rhys and Shelly had 3 daughters: the “twins” Kirsty & Jade and Dani. Dani was a bit of a moany hole. She went out with Will Smyth until she realised that he wasn’t the Hollywood star of Independence Day and Men in Black. She then went out with Josh West who was a tool. Then she was raped by Kane Phillips. Back in those days, they used to say “attack” rather than “rape”. Kirsty found this irresistible and eloped with her sister’s rapist.  All of this drove Rhys off the edge and he had a rage stroke.

Shelly left him to nobody’s great surprise. But he soon ended up with Beth Hunter, to everyone’s surprise. She was a living saint and was a good influence on the raging Rhys. She told him to keep his temper in check or he’d be kicked to the curb. Alas her wholesome ways weren’t enough for dumb ass Rhys and he left Beth once home wrecker Shelly appeared back on the scene. I don’t think too many tears were shed in the bay the day he left. Thankfully, he’s never come back.
