*@SleepingStandingUp*, @CurbsideProphet et al - we filled up a Home and Away thread. This is unheard of. So here’s shiny new one - I know there are only a few of us, but keep the faith.

Oh fab we have a new home smile

SleepingStandingUp Thu 05-Apr-18 19:12:40

Oh dammit I didn't see it when I started a new one. And I got Ash in the Title!!

TWO H&A threads? MN will implode. There are only three of us who watch it!

Of course you got Ash in the title, Sleeping grin I am still a little unsure, manwise - ever since Dr. Nate left, it’s not been quite the same. Brody’s a bit too preppy and although Ash is very easy on the eye, he’s really gone off the rails. I think I’ll make a bid for Luc Babysitter Cop (and should probably learn his name...)

There’s 3 threads..someone started one..and there’s 4 of us watching btw 😉

You flamin’ galahs!

I can’t be bothered to watch any more but dip into the threads. This is too funny.

BlackandWhitePostcards Thu 05-Apr-18 22:46:52

Checking in.
I used to start H&M’s threads all the time and no one would ever reply, I felt like such a loner. Now we have three in one day grin Yay!

BlackandWhitePostcards Thu 05-Apr-18 22:47:26

H&M?? No H&A! Stupid auto correct.

SleepingStandingUp Thu 05-Apr-18 22:49:18

I still think Pa Astoni has something a bit hot for an older guy

SleepingStandingUp Thu 05-Apr-18 22:52:23

Washing I just realised you're my thread buddy on two Aussie threads

TheWashingFairyatemyhamster Thu 05-Apr-18 23:13:45

Sleeping they’re pretty much the only places I post. I should probably get a life.

I'm not sure of the etiquette in terms of pretending we don’t ‘know’ each other back on the other thread wink but I’ll refrain for mentioning your Ash obsession over there. Your secret is safe.

Aussie soaps are my weakness. When DS1 was little and never ever slept I even watched a lot of Macleod’s Daughters whilst breastfeeding between 5 and 7am. Was too sleep deprived to work out what was going on, but there were lots of familiar faces.

SleepingStandingUp Thu 05-Apr-18 23:24:52

Hahah that's ok, I'm not ashamed. I love Tyler too before the bad hair cut.

You should watch Holby, we're a fun bunch over there

ChoccyJules Thu 05-Apr-18 23:32:14

Um, there are five of us who watch it wink

SleepingStandingUp Thu 05-Apr-18 23:35:42

7 Whoo hooooo


ChoccyJules Thu 05-Apr-18 23:47:43

I'm a few days behind so only seen new cop a couple of times. Is it Cody, Corey or summat else because I can't decide what they're saying (and I'm too lazy to look it up)?!

BlackandWhitePostcards Thu 05-Apr-18 23:56:11

I haven’t watched either but I think someone on the last thread said it was Cobey?

BlackandWhitePostcards Thu 05-Apr-18 23:57:31

Aussie soaps are my weakness too. Don’t watch any other TV. Just love the escapism - the weather, the lifestyle.. it’s just a totally different world.

Thing is do you want to be posher and live in the suburbs or live by the sea. If chose summer bay!

user1andonly Fri 06-Apr-18 00:19:51

Eight grin

I think new cop is called Colby.

AGnu Fri 06-Apr-18 01:09:05

I'm here too! Totally just panicked when I realised the last thread was full & thought I was going to have to start a new one!

I'm not liking the new cop. His lips annoyed me in his first scene & I haven't quite forgiven him for doing a weird pouty thing. I don't think he's even done it again! Plus, I'm annoyed on behalf of all the perfectly competent cops who have to hand their cases over to this bloke who's just walked in. It's fine though, I give it maybe a week before his tattoo secret is revealed & a month before he leaves. Then we'll get another Charlie/Kat lookalike filling the spot of uptight only cop in the bay who falls in love with one of the bad boys & ends up dead because of it.

How long do you think it'll be before Roo tracks down her mum? She'll probably have a whole other family now but her new husband will have died & she'll come back to the bay with adult children who'll rub Roo/Alf up the wrong way maybe one of them will be a beautiful, impossibly thin female police officer with brown hair but within a few days everyone will have resolved their differences & Alf & Martha will be making eyes at each other & having "y'know, I never stopped loving you" conversations.

I'm bored of pretty blonde victim woman & Leah speaking for her all the time. Can she not say "excuse me, only policeman allowed to leave the station, my stalker is still harrassing me" with her own mouth?!

TheOnlyLivingBoyInNewCross Fri 06-Apr-18 07:52:45

AGnu - grin

Why has Leah latched on to this new woman so bizarrely? Is she just a VJ replacement? Is it that the writers are going: WTF do we do with Leah? - we can’t give her another husband yet. We have to at least wait for Maggie to die before we match her up with Pa Astoni. Who I had forgotten about and who is actually quite hot in a dishevelled way. I did like his “thump Mick the Rapist first and ask questions later” approach which I feel more men in the Bay could have taken.

Love the roll-call of H&A fans, btw - I literally know no-one who watches in RL. I on the other hand get quite excited when it’s ironing day because I can binge-watch a week’s worth of episodes in peace.

Colby New Cop looks a bit shiny. He couldn’t grow a beard if he tried. It’s a shame he has a Shady Past: why do H&A never have an uptight good guy who falls for the bad girl? (Trying to think of one now...)

Sleeping - I’m on the Holby thread too more occasionally - the Dom/Isaac storyline sucked me in and now I’m in thrall to HH...

SleepingStandingUp Fri 06-Apr-18 09:28:37

I guess Justin's new gf is the closest they come to a bad 'un since they killed off Hunters mom.
Loved the look on Olivia's face when she saw him and Jennifer together

ChoccyJules Fri 06-Apr-18 10:35:45

Colby, right.
I am also on the Holby threads, though finding it all a bit nonsensical recently, like they threw the script up in the air and caught a bit each...
