Easily swayed

Monday, November 3rd, 2014

Ah lads, this is hard to watch. Poor simple Andy Barrett thinks Jake is his new best mate, and is hanging on his every word. THE BLEEDIN DOPE.

We in H&AI HQ were nearly feeling sorry for lovelorn Maddie there, until she was a total wagon to Evie.

Everyone’s keeping an eye on Oscar since his exercise coma, that’ll get tiresome quick.

Brax and Ricky don’t seem to bother going to their jobs on a regular basis.

HSC hooning

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

In the space of one episode, Sasha went from failing her HSC to, um, not failing it. Zac was just acting the tough teacher for a while. Matt owned up to his amazing poetry skills, and all was well.

Oscar loves that oul’ gym. He can’t get enough. Or, maybe he can; 8 chest extensions had him staggering around the place like a drunk. He got pretty angry when Spencer and Maddie told him to ease off, look!

Oscar SMASH!

Oscar SMASH!

Maddie going mad

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

It’s Maddie’s turn to have a go at being a wayward teen. She’s going to try it on with Oscar, to get back at Evie for stealing Josh, and she’s talking about leaving school. She does great brat, to be fair.

Jett is going to be John’s best man. Deadly. That buck’s night is going to be mental. Chris is hanging around like a bad smell, trying to be invited. Doesn’t John know that, in the grand old Home and Away tradition, you’re supposed to have someone you barely know in the bridal party?

 

A quick one

Hahaha they are making Maddie repeat Year 11; she will be raging! ????

From one moaner to another

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Darcy wants to spend her holidays with Heath so he is looking for a bigger gaff, he needs the space to put up both his children. Phoebe is unimpressed by Darcy’s ways, playing her guitar without permission. She wants to live with Kyle but not all of the brothers and children. Phoebe thinks that it would make more sense if they moved out and left the flat to the Braxton bros, which is fine but she neglected to tell Kyle about her decision.

John and Marilyn’s bus tours made a reappearance after a few months. While Marilyn was giving her commentary she spied Josh and Evelyn pashing at the bus stop. She wanted to tell Maddie but John told her to hold off. Instead of that they sat Josh down and told him to do the right thing by Maddie. Josh decided to go back to Evelyn and tell her he’s going to give it another try with Maddy so no more friendship for them either. Tough choice for him, moaner A or moaner B.

It was great to see a bit of equine action in the Bay, we haven’t had that in a while. It reminded me of when Kip Gamblin was in his pomp, galloping up and down the beach after Dani.

Matt is broke and is trying to get a job. He offered to do a free shift for Angelo’s and earned himself 50 dollars for his trouble but Kyle can’t afford to keep him on which is a problem as he already told Sasha he had a job and she was dead impressed with his get up and go. When he went to tell her about his lack of job, she cut him off before he could tell her, in typical Summer Bay style. Next episode she’ll find out the truth and go mad at him for not saying earlier. The episode closed with them about to get it on in the Diner when Irene came in and sprung them, caught rapid.

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.

Not a broken limb in sight

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.

Bruised egos

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Roo returned but wasn’t in too much of a hurry to say why she came back early. Maybe Coleen was getting on her nerves? Roo gave Marilyn a crystal ball which prompted her to say she might start doing readings again. How many businesses is she going to start and then drop? What happened to the tour bus.

Maddie happy to have Roo back. She told Roo things are better than ever, she even asked to move into a van with him, bizarre behaviour.

Kyle wants Phoebe to snap out of her funk so he offered her an amazing gig, a musical residency at Angelo’s. She is so down about her dog Dad, even that opportunity of a lifetime failed to cheer her up. Maybe she’s afraid she’s part canine? To clear the air she’s going to sell everything her Dad ever gave her. Garage sale time.

Casey is nursing a bruised jaw and ego. Chris punched him and then Denny wouldn’t answer his call. Kyle went after Casey to stop him going after Chris, but it’s Denny he’s looking for. He went to the farm for answers but all he got was a bag of frozen peas to put on his bruise, but they didn’t last, she asked for them back when she kicked him out. Kyle told him to cool it and give her space. In the meantime she called over to Chris’s where he was laying low, for fear of Braxton retaliation. She asked him to give it another go but he wasn’t interested. So now that she’s free and single, herself and Casey are going to give it a go, taking things slowly, they’ll make a nice couple.

Romances rejigged

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

It’s all about the romances down Summer Bay way, look at all the recent changes:

  • Chris and Denny broke up
  • Casey and Denny are about to get together
  • Maddie and Josh are surely on the rocks
  • Evelyn will be there to pick up the pieces
  • Nate and Sophie won’t be together too long
  • Hannah might like a go of the doc, or Leah
  • Marilyn and John are trialling Alf’s gaff (and leaving John’s house empty, for some mad reason)

Casey got a punch to the face, courtesy of Chris – that’s one for the Braxton punch count. Denny is too much of a wet blanket for Chris anyhow.

BASH!

BASH!

Roo is back! It took her a while to get her massive dresses through customs, but she’s made it back to the bay safely. Oh my gawdfather!

John likes weak tea, the total weirdo.

Family meeting

Monday, August 18th, 2014

Brax called a family meeting and then proceeded to tell the gang that there was no point to the meeting, he just wanted to see them all and get a progress report. It wasn’t quite what they were all expecting, these things normally involve assassination attempts or somebody being sent to jail. Brax is worried about the boys and wants to have more input from them, some involvement in their lives. He even volunteered to babysit Harley. They had a massive barbie in the garden, looked like a great time, complete with crap music and burnt snags. Brax seemed disappointed that there’s no drama with his bros. Be careful what you wish for Darryl.

Phoebe is still worried about the shooting as she doesn’t know that her Dad was behind it. Brax told Kyle to fess up and tell her the truth which he had to do eventually, she was suitably gob smacked when she found out her Dad is a dog.

Denny is having second thoughts about Chris. He pales in comparison to Casey in her eyes. Hannah asked her whats going on and she told her that she’s going off him, she finds him a bit annoying now. Chris tried to call over to Denny’s but she was having a girl’s night.

Spencer confronted Evelyn about her having the hots for Josh but she wasn’t impressed. Maddie copped on too and told Josh so it won’t be long before Evelyn finds out that everyone else knows. Cue Josh calling over and telling her he knows but she denied it and said it was all in Spencer’s head.

Friendzone

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

John had an elaborate proposal plan for Marilyn, he gave her a metal detector and let her find it in the front garden. It went down a treat, I’d say they’ll be happy now.

Denny wasn’t too happy with Casey telling her about his feelings. She thought they were mates but he wanted more. They’re going to try to keep things on a friendship basis or so they say. How long will they stay in the friendzone before Chris gets his p45? About 2 episodes I reckon.

Speaking of the friendzone, Evelyn and Spencer had been concentrating on their exams so had no time for romance. Once they finished them, Spence wanted to get back in the groove but Evelyn was having none of it. She has her eye on some other buchaill, Josh perhaps?

Himself and Maddie seem to be drifting apart because she is class at exams and studying but he finds it tough. When she finished her exam paper she exclaimed “I’m finished” to the class and skipped out of the room. I would have dumped her for that if I were him.
