  1. Him being a drip sort of works for this I thought. The book (written by the director) had Landslide by Fleetwood Mac as its tunnel song, which definitely seems more plausible to me as a vaguely niche song.
  2. Have just watched this short youtube series which I had not seen before is a bit campy but a lot of fun with some great cameos of characters going back a good few years. https://youtu.be/mLrNBRrNVl0 There is also a neighbours vs zombies which has its moments but is not quite as good. Main highlight being the theme tune version they use.
  3. Neighbours 4/5 Really had some ups and downs in terms of quality. Some ropey bits in the middle but pulled off a solid ending.
  4. Wish there was a higher quality version of this. Around 3.06 for Harold rapping.
  5. When the end was announced I would have taken who they got back in a heartbeat. Now it's happened I think because they managed to get so many high profile people back it makes some omissions look odd/probably more disappointing than they ought to be. Jim Robinson - odd mainly because he has turned up as a wing mirror ghost for Paul at least once in the last few years. Would have been easy to fit something into the Paul-Therese storyline. Lou Carpenter - they got Harold back for a nice little stint rather than just a snippet and in many ways he was the glue for the concept. Lou checking out Chez chez and playing off Harold would have been great.
  6. They would have known each other off screen(on screen is beyond my memory) Was regularly mentioned in terms of speaking to them on phone and things like visits happening.
  7. I think maybe Kylie was paid by the word. Can't believe they got Finn in and and a dead hendrix but no stingray who died in his chair out there.
  8. I always wanted Billy and Anne together, but the way they got together was weird. Abridged from: http://www.neighboursepisodes.com/index.php?year=1997&episode=2806 Anne comes out of relationship, rejects Billy’s advance. Injures self. Billy helps her home, she falls asleep on sofa (but is actually awake). Billy kisses her while he thinks she is asleep they fall in love and live happily ever after. Do I need to kiss all the girls that have ever rejected me while they are asleep (or pretending to be - how they I even gauge this), in case actually we were meant to be together?
  9. Well this third season was a slog. Only really completed because I downloaded it onto my ipad and have been travelling and have had time in that I needed to watch something. The entire lie about having been to new Eden was so poorly contrived. It stood up to 0 scrutiny and for most of the season they didn't seem to make it clear that there was any increased risk of checking out new eden so it would seem odd the train would vote against it, but even without that instead of downright lying all they had to do was put an optimistic spin on the risk level and no one else would have had the detail to scrutinise it and the truth coming out would have been a subjective issue rather than a downright lie. What shape is the train? I have no idea these days, but all the main characters can just jump between locations and barricades are basically just used at times for highlighting confrontation. Characters flip flop so much. But more importantly other characters trust is odd. Audrey who would trust her again and her and Bess came out of nowhere but suddenly she was trustworthy again which considering her previous heel turn is quite a stretch. Pike - in many ways he was right to distrust Layton but actually he had none of the information that would have validated his turn - and all they actually had to do to make this more plausible was to put him in the room and make him part of the lie and this would have made more sense. Oh well at least the last episode was improved and the resolution sort of different and explosion withstanding they could pretty much stop it at 3 seasons and it be somewhat satisfying.
  10. My hope for the last episode is everyone playing cricket in the street. Susan and Karl come out carrying the blue box for some reason then 1 of them stumbles spilling the depraved contents of the blue box for all to see. End.
  11. The blonde haired one was the weirdly sort of Scottish Andrew, who Chris Pappas confessed his love for. Chris has turned up (hairy guy-gets referred to as freckles by Paul) with some kid (can't remember if the kid was conceived on show). The murdering sons were two different Paul offspring. Actually triplets. The boys Rob and Cam. Cam got murdered by Rob. Rob is still in jail and has made a few appearances in recent years. Harlow (played by a Donovan) turned up as a child of his to add to the active Robinson clan in recent years.
  12. Connor. Haha that is one of the most bizarre things they have done. Completely left hanging. His wallet was found somewhere in Asia. Then maybe 10 years ago? He turned up and was 'shit you thought i was dead, i just went to do some more travelling and lost my wallet' Despite the last scene he was in was him figuring out Pauls son was the murdering one and not the none-murdering twin or similar. Him and Toadie were.really good mates at the time.
  13. Joel Samuels, he had very different hair when he was on the show which prob was post 95 https://images.app.goo.gl/Tc5XhNt7o6ZJUA6L7
  14. It's pretty simple in the Neighbours universe, almost all characters are related or in a relationship with one another so bringing characters back is quite straightforward, if anything the peculiarity is that some of these people have not visited their family in the last 20 odd years. It's most rare for new characters to turn up/move in that do not have any connection to someone.
  15. I did not, but that thing was so long I was questioning whether he might have died and it was some weird obituary.
  16. I don't think it is very diverse. Whatever year it was Bright Eyes played the John Peel and Conor Oberst was out of it and said a bunch of shit like 'wave your credit cards in the air to make poverty history' and various shit which he later apologised for i was sort of annoyed because it was pretty true and also anyone think Peel would have been upset by that his favourite band were the Fall? It definitely has diversity but from my pov it doesn't seem that diverse. On more important news i'm sat in the air waiting for my flight back! 2 and a half years waiting for this glasto is prob the biggest commitment i've ever made in my life.
  17. I am off. I know the pandemic isn't over over, but this was one of the one big things I had planned for 2020 (and is still yet to happen), that got killed by it and i'm doing so assuming I get there (don't trust anything til i am there these days). It will feel a bit like a palette cleanser after 2 years. I am very excited the lineup is pretty decent there's definitely a variety of stuff i'll be more than happy to go see, and no doubt a few clashes. McCartney headlined (04?) which was my first glasto and was excellent live, and Pet Shop Boys were brilliant the year they did this and Latitude. Lots down the lower order as well need to give it a real study.
  18. I habe enjoyed it overall though i'm not sure it's that great in many ways.
  19. Great casting has absolutely shown he can turn on a dime (if i knew what one was) in terms of emotion and delivery he was a bit one note in the first series of sex ed but has completely shown what he can do since then.
