Several things -

If I was Rani, I would be in seventh heaven if Kyle called me his girlfriend <teenaged swoon>

Connor is back!

WildWorld2004 Wed 28-Nov-12 14:40:24

I caught the end of an episode the other day. I just have one question. What the hell is going on with sonyas bump??? Its weird.

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Wed 28-Nov-12 14:41:14

Harley...not Kylie, just sayin wink

alisonsmum Wed 28-Nov-12 16:12:56

ewwwwwwww i cant bare sonya.

TwllBach Wed 28-Nov-12 18:24:27

Whoops blush

Although Kyle is pretty hot as well.

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Wed 28-Nov-12 18:28:08

Yes i prefer him!

No idea why they have brought Connor back, seems a bit random.

Home & Away is a bit more easy on the eye than Neighbours though.

Felicitywascold Wed 28-Nov-12 18:29:22

Connor? Toadies friend that just randomly disappeared years ago?

Because if so I might have to start watching it again...

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Wed 28-Nov-12 18:31:30

Yes the one and the same!

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Wed 28-Nov-12 18:31:54

He keeps talking about his daughter Maddie - who is her mum i can't remember.

Felicitywascold Wed 28-Nov-12 19:16:23

Not a clue, but I'm going to watch! It's been about 3 years, is half the cast the same still?

CelstialNavigation Wed 28-Nov-12 19:56:05

Brace yourself Felicity - Susan and Karl have finally split. Karl is currently pursuing internet romance.

KatzGold Wed 28-Nov-12 20:18:42

Did anyone else notice that Karl's lady friend is the same actress who played Jen handley who married Philip Martin?

Felicitywascold Wed 28-Nov-12 20:19:38

No way! I'm putting it on series record as I type...

FrillyMilly Wed 28-Nov-12 20:25:50

Sonya is so uptight. Connor is toadies best friend and she was whining about him arriving. Maddies mum was Lori she was a New Zealander and I think of Chinese heritage. It was around the same time that Taj and Michelle scully where in it.

MyCatsRule Wed 28-Nov-12 22:11:38

I thought I recognised Karl's new friend!!

Taj... now he was pretty grin

threesocksmorgan Wed 28-Nov-12 22:44:49

(if anyone watches Home and away can you look at my thread please.)

why does Sonya keep rubbing her bump?
I have never seen anyone do it that much

SinisterBuggyMonth Thu 29-Nov-12 14:38:01

I'm confused, I thought Clonnor was burried under a shrub in Ramsey Streer by Pauls evil twin-son

FrillyMilly Thu 29-Nov-12 16:51:19

Sinister everyone thought Paul's evil son killed him off then months (or maybe years) later a letter arrived saying he had gone traveling.

SpanishFly Sat 01-Dec-12 10:50:33

yeah, i wonder what Connor is here for - seems random if it's literally just for a visit.

But THE HOUSE OF TROUSER IS BACK!

I'm beginning to dislike Sonya even more than I dislike Kate. shock

SavoyCabbage Sat 01-Dec-12 10:53:13

I thought Connor was dead.

Maddie's mother was from New Zealand I remember that as she called her Middy.

TwllBach Sat 01-Dec-12 14:44:19

Sonya is genuinely a ridiculous character. She makes me ashamed to be female.

SpanishFly Mon 03-Dec-12 08:12:08

She acts like she's in a pantomime, all exaggerated gestures and facial expressions. Weird.

And when she started dating toadie she was so plain but her hair suddenly became all shiny and bouncy.

Clawdy Mon 03-Dec-12 09:03:04

Anyone else NOT feel sorry for Summer? Silly girl.....although I hate seeing Susan proved right.

SpanishFly Mon 03-Dec-12 10:19:47

I used to love Susan's character but she turned into an irritating busybody. Even if u disapproved of summer leaving, you'd still say "I hope it all goes well for u" type of thing, not just keep telling her what a HUGE mistake she was making

threesocksfullofchocs Tue 04-Dec-12 11:49:40

what about Paul and Priya(not sure how to spell it) that is so odd.
although AJ is so irritating, he seems to never let her breathe

PuffPants Tue 04-Dec-12 13:38:09

Paul and Priya is very wrong. She is really unattractive too with her bright blue eyeshadow and her poker up the arse face. Her husband is very annoying though with his big stupid smiley face and unsolicited shoulder rubs - a cloying man is a big turn-off.

Phew, really just had to vent that. I just don't like the Kapoors at all. Including the daughter who looks and sounds like she's been eating magic mushrooms, all spaced-out and drifty. She has one acting mode at all times!

Anyway... Anyone else thinking Tash and Andrew back on soon?

Oh and yes, good riddance Summer - I'd rather have a lifetime of shiny Kate than one more episode with her in it! grin

KittyMcAllister Tue 04-Dec-12 14:21:32

Tash and Andrew are leaving soon, as is Summer. Reckon they'll do something quite dramatic for their exit. There are also some old characters coming back like Steph (not that I read the Channel 5 Neighbours website or anything...)

The most annoying thing about Priya is her whiny voice! Don't think her affair with Paul is at all believable.

Clawdy Tue 04-Dec-12 16:18:07

Yes,perhaps Priya is a bit sick of Ajay's constant grinning. She doesn't look as stunning as she did at first,perhaps it is the metallic eyeshadow....

threesocksfullofchocs Tue 04-Dec-12 16:59:55

oh I will miss Tash, I think her character has grown, I s Chris going?

TwllBach Tue 04-Dec-12 17:49:45

Priya is a nob
Ajay is a nob
Paul is the biggest nob of all
But Susan is a nobby nob as well.

That sums it up for me smile

SpanishFly Tue 04-Dec-12 18:09:43

Noooooooo! Don't tell us who's leaving soon!?!

CelstialNavigation Tue 04-Dec-12 18:28:20

Ooh. Wonder if they'll put Andrew and Summer back together again then and send them off into the sunset?

They can't just kill them in another road traffic accident, seeing as they dispatched Bridget, Ringo and even Todd (remember him??) that way.

Obviously you should never go near a road if you're under 21 in Erinsborough.

TwllBach Wed 05-Dec-12 17:42:19

Are they heading towards crazy controlling boyfriend with Harley? I really howp they aren't!

TwllBach Wed 05-Dec-12 17:42:41

Ummmm... Hope blush

Jojobells1986 Wed 05-Dec-12 17:54:52

Ajay reminds me of how my DH is when I'm annoyed with him - so clingy & needy! I can kinda see Priya looking at someone else but not this whole Paul saga! Ew.

I'd not be surprised if Harley got a bit controlling, given the character's backstory. It seems like he had no control in his previous life but suddenly has someone who will apparently do/say anything to keep him happy!

I love psychoanalysing soap characters! blush

TwllBach Wed 05-Dec-12 17:57:33

That does make sense, about his back story, but I was hoping that it wants going to happen sad

FrillyMilly Wed 05-Dec-12 20:41:45

I'm glad Sonya has buggered off for a bit. Toadie is so dull now. I reckon Priya is going to get pregnant and Rani is going to become the next Kate/Summer, really boring and annoying yet inexplicably attractive to every male.

RobinsBaubleSparkles Wed 05-Dec-12 20:46:41

The Paul and Priya affair has to be the most boring in soap history. Why do women only ever have affairs with Paul Robinson. They never cheat with anyone else - he's such a snake. In reality there's no way anyone would ever find him attractive!

I'm finding Neighbours really boring ATM.

PuffPants Wed 05-Dec-12 21:11:32

No, if there's any waltzing into the sunset to be done, I want Andrew & Tash to do it. Summer & Andrew were a horrible couple, she was so condescending towards him.

I'm loving how caring Tash is of Andrew right now.

Clawdy Wed 05-Dec-12 22:54:48

Yes,Tash/Andrew would be nice. Paul's personality seems to change every so often. He never used to be a harsh parent to Andrew,who now seems afraid of him. Wasn't he an indulgent dad not long ago?

SpanishFly Thu 06-Dec-12 09:51:55

Robins I find Paul attractive. blush

I am SURE Priya will be pregnant soon. She'll convince herself it's Ajay's, but it'll be white with blonde hair. If only- that would be worth watching.

CelstialNavigation Thu 06-Dec-12 18:48:15

I think the idea is that Andrew is dying for his father's approval, and that's hard to earn when it comes to Paul's work interests.

I like the way Paul was proclaiming Andrew had lied to him "all his life!". Umm, apart from the 16 or so years you never saw him eh Paul?

Didn't think of Priya getting pregnant but that sounds so true. There'll be all sorts of daft questions like "can you tell the baby's race from the ultrasound scan?" and then the baby will be born and start babbling in a occasionally scottish accent like Andrew.

I have no interest in Vanessa's fake marriage story and i can see my lack of interest is shared by people on this thread grin

anonacfr Thu 06-Dec-12 19:13:39

What's Vanessa fake marriage story?

I stopped watching when Sonya was trying to convince Lucas he should break Rhys and Vanessa's relationship because after treating her like shit he suddenly decided he fancied her after all.

Clawdy Thu 06-Dec-12 19:39:46

grin at the baby babbling in an occasionally scottish accent....

CelstialNavigation Sun 09-Dec-12 19:01:22

Anon, Rhys and Vanessa broke up (but are still in love).

Vanessa's incredibly stereotypical catholic mother turned up and threatened to disown her for having child out of wedlock.

Lucas thinks it is actually a good idea to therefore marry Vanessa.

Toadie seems to be his best man which is fairly appropriate since last time they did a fake wedding it was Toadie the fake groom marrying Steph, who Lucas was in love with.

In fairness to Toadie he is now of the opinion that fake marriages are not the best idea.

ShipwreckedAndUnderTheTree Mon 10-Dec-12 21:12:15

Paul and Pryia are so unsexy it's just awful! Is it possible to have that little chemistry between two people?

moajab Tue 11-Dec-12 15:19:51

I want to point Vanesssa to the Relationship boards on MN for some advice in how to deal with controlling parents!

And Ajay just giggles at everything - it's very annoying.

SpanishFly Tue 11-Dec-12 17:20:43

I must be a freak cos I'm a tiny bit in love with Ajay and would with Paul. Seriously, even I know that's weird.

ShipwreckedUnderTheTree Tue 11-Dec-12 17:32:26

I can't believe you admitted that out loud!! grin

TwllBach Wed 12-Dec-12 18:29:49

Vanessa is beautiful isn't she???

CelstialNavigation Wed 12-Dec-12 18:53:32

Was it because of this video SpainishFly? www.youtube.com/watch?v=trfYjucLGj0

Paul Robinson and his short-lived but cheese-tastic 80's singing career.

ShipwreckedUnderTheTree Wed 12-Dec-12 20:16:59

No!! That. Just makes it worse...I refuse to go back there and open at link...

ShipwreckedUnderTheTree Wed 12-Dec-12 20:19:29

Couldn't resist!!
I had forgotten how cheesy retro that was!!

SpanishFly Thu 13-Dec-12 13:27:33

Don't it make you fyeeel good?

SpanishFly Fri 14-Dec-12 16:28:49

NEIGHBOURS WON'T BE ON FOR A MONTH!! AAAAARGH!!

HoHoHokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Fri 14-Dec-12 16:31:12

What?!!

Bloody Christmas balls'ing everything up!

I know it's how we catch up but still, that's bloody rubbish!

SpanishFly Fri 14-Dec-12 16:39:56

I know!! A MONTH?!?

readyforno2 Tue 22-Jan-13 20:06:47

Wondering if there is a different thread? Found this just before Christmas and the month off...

SpanishFly Thu 24-Jan-13 15:34:07
