I recently watched an old episode of Home and Away and compared the characters to the more recent version. I was stunned at seeing how unrealistically 'perfect looking' all of the characters on the show now are. There is not one single semi-attractive person on it. They are all gorgeous! Considering we live in a time where the pressures of body image and what is depicted as beauty is affecting our Australian society, wouldn't it be great to have some 'real people' on that show, which also should include people of multi-cultural background? When I watched saw the new cast I was so appalled that the only statement Home and Away is now making is that to be an actor it requires little talent, you have to be Caucasian, and beautiful with a perfect body.....
I have grown up watching Home and Away every week night at 7pm. It's an aussie classic!
A few months ago my fiance and I went for a late night drive to "Summer Bay" (Palm Beach) and even as a 21 year old I couldn't contain my excitement as I walked along the jetty, sat on the beach and drove up to the lighthouse.
Funny thing is when I was 8, I named my puppy Sally and recently my fiance and I bought a rescue dog and we named him Jett.
Come on man wadaya doing! Poor Brax had to act alongside that ridiculously poor actress cop (dont know her name because she left such little impression) And now your torturing him with having to act "interested" in this even worse actress - The counsellor. What the hell! Brax deserves soooo much better than this. Its embarassing and frustrating to watch. my daughter and i are currently boycotting coz its too painful to watch. COME ON MAN! Be Fair!!!!!! Poor Steve : (
So disappointed with the pairing of Steve Peacocke and Catherine Mack.There is NO chemistry between the two of them and The Natalie character is SO irritating always playing Miss Goody two shoes which has a lot to do with the script and her turning up in peoples houses which no counsellor would do..This is a great show and the producers got it right pairing Brax with Charlie but the Natalie/Brax is a real bomb.Please please find a strong character for Brax otherwise its painful to watch.Natalie simpers and has that weird smile all the time.Pretty girl but not the girl for Brax.
OMG - why are the Braxton Boy's making it so hard to get their father out of their lives..... If the old man is doing another Job and they know about it, why don't they just tell the cops. He will go back inside, thus no longer in their lives.... Too Easy.... Drrrr
I must say this the best soap i have seen. I do not watch many soaps for the reason that they are are hard to follow. I do not follow this either. The reason i do not like soaps is because they are so hard to follow and you need to see so many episodes. I do not have much time on my hands to watch every single episode so it becomes complicated.
I am sorry but soaps are extremely bad and unrealistic, they always have break-ups, or people dying just as they find love. Love affairs are a big favourite, but it always happens. The best soap so take that for granted, but it's a soap!
Utterly pitiful. Made even more hilarious by the original boast of its cast members that it was more "realistic" than Neighbours... *POT KETTLE BLACK* anybody....? If realistic means a town where all the inhabitants have white teeth, there's no smoking, everyone is politically correct, there's lashings of bizzare family disharmony and ether soaked rags, morality is policed by local mutton head "tough nut", the humilliatingly naff Alf Stewart, and there's *never* any swearing, then er, BRING IT ON! I haven't bothered to watch this slop since 1991, no doubt I'll be accused of something or another, but hey rack off... Zzzzz...... Avoid like the plague.
I love watching Home and Away it's a great programme, with very talented actors and actresses both young and old.
My personal favourite is a actress called Tessa James who plays the character Nicole Franklin, she used to be in Neighbours for a bit and played a blind girl which i thought she played brilliantly, and in home and away now she plays a rich spoilt girl, she is very funny.
Then you have Alf Stewart whos been in in from the very beginning, and his sister Morag Bellingham wow shes funny, will she ever find love haha!!!
Its set in summer bay, and all the locals no each otehr, its a great show to watch, focusing on everyday issues etc
Home and Away = My life This so is amazing. I love it. I choose Ahead of it's time because it is. It just grabs your attention so easily and after every episode it makes you want to come back for more it is just so fabulous. I love it
The charaters are perfect for the part they play and it is directed so well. The person that envented Home and Away should become a saint. Everyone I know watches Home and Away. For me it is like a rituial to watch Home and Away I couldn't imagian life without it. I will love Home and Away forever.
home and away is great. i love it. i like all the story lines and never want to miss it. my favorite character is martha. i feel she gets the best story line and has a great sense of personallity. you can see how she has changed over the years and you can really tell what she would proberly want in a sicuation. overall i like all the characters. most of the events in summerbay ends up in tradedy and starts a new story line. i will always watch home and away and i will always love it. it is great and would really advise anyone to try and watch it. i don't know how any one can diss it.
this show is awesome it just keeps getting better and no one can doubt that. look at past storylines if you dont belive me, physcho stalkers, killer cops, explosive weddings, hostage situations, drugs, on the run, storms, shipwrecks and much more. have you ever had juicy and gripping plotlines like that on things like corrie, and neighbours. NO. and you probably never will home and away is way before its time and its one show that channel 5 shouldnt ever let go of i don t know what the ratings for this show are in britain but i know that i hate it when i miss an episode and people say ozzy soaps arent as good, i cant stand neighbours the show physically knocks me sick, bad acting and story lines wereas home and away is off the scale juicy ahead of its time storylines what more can you ask for in a soap.
Well where to start with this terrible show. Its actors are shocking. They replace them almost bi-monthly. Except for the ones that have always been there. Yet they form such close bonds to each other and their best friends, even though they change every 2 months. The story are just are bad. If all that bad stuff happend in your town, I'm pretty sure you would leave. If you hadn't already died in the weekly distaster or car crash etc. Really i have no idea how this show is still in production and why people watch it. Its terrible! Not to mention its almost exactly the same as another show on 30 mins beforehand by the name of neighbours. Get rid of this show!
I think Home and Away is great, its not as annoying and stereotypical as British soaps and isnt quite as crazy as US soaps. I do admit that its not the best put together show in the world and some things in the past have been forgotten (a psychic twin who turned out not to be a twin) but the story lines are great, the characters are unusual and the quys surfing are always great fun to see. We have just had a 2 week summer break of the show on channel 5 and i can not wait for it to start up again, and it will be starting with a bang as the best show do. It is a great, light show to watch (most of the time) and i will continue to watch it for quite a long time.
Home and away is one of those shows people don't admit to actually watching! Infact it is so bad that I have to keep on watching it. Its a great little 1/2 hour filler for when there's nothing else to watch. Sometimes the story lines are dragged on and can get a tad annoying. For example good old Irene and her jail stint for shooting a coppa! No one should be subjected into seeing Irene in that prison outfit!! As for Alf what is summer bay with out Alf Stewart I could sink a few Tinnies with that man so wise and full of knowledge. I also love when they have a town meeting and about 15 people rock up that is gold!
One last thing in the words of Irene.. For Gawds sake will someone tell Geoff and Annie to grow up, Geoff doesn't need to be babysat he is an adolescent as if Pippa needed to come down and look after them. Cut the cord Geoffy boy.
Summer Bay was allegedly founded by Alf Stewart's ancestors in the early 20th century, and is the home of the show Home and Away which initially was based around the foster family, The Fletchers, and their caravan park business. However, 20 years down the line, the show concentrates on the lives of it's residents in a more complex style. Home of many a natural and complex disasters, the residents of Summer Bay have their local Diner, Surf Club and beach to hang out on, and of course the school for the teenagers. This show is by far more superior than it's Melbourne counterpart.
Haay its a good show but the story lines are just a little bit over the top and silly lol ...

I have been watching Home and away since it began. I sometimes watch the new episodes. I like to watch Home and Away because I am interested in the characters and the stories. They are funny somtimes, sad but always entertaining.
Home and Away is set in a small town on a surf beach. For years the main characters have remained in the story. Others come and go sometimes for short periods and sometimes for many episodes. They help to make the story more exciting.
Some of the main chracters are Alf, Sally and Morag
Each episode is a story on its own but it forms part of the whole story.
Home And Away is about the fictional town of Summer Bay, which is located just north of "The City" (Sydney) with a lot of trouble in it.
This show will explore the relationships, scandals and lives of the characters in Summer Bay.
Like I said in the Summary Home And Away is about a fictional town just north of Sydney called Summer Bay. The Summer Bay citizens are quite the trouble makers as the show is based on their daily lives.
In this show you will be able to explore the daily lives of the people of Summer Bay. Things that you will see will be relationships, friendship, shocks, scandals, affairs, kidnappings and most of all Logie winning performances like the ones made by Kate Richie (Sally in Homa And Away) whom has just left the show.
In all Home And Away is a pretty good and simple Aussie show, I would rate it better than Neighbours because it is just more interesting and full of no-stop new ideas.
I used to enjoy Home and Away. Now it is getting a bit too unbelievable. There are too many catastrophes, killings, and stalkers for such a small town. Nearly everyone has a secret and most relationships fail. I enjoy some of the characters personalities like Alf and Morag. The show does need fine-tuning. It is very, very predictable and the twists are not as good as they're made up to be. I think I will stop watching Home and Away soon, although I'll give it a chance to redeem itself. Overall Home and Away is your ordinary, average TV show. 7/10.
This show is one of the best soaps on Australian TV right now, and probably the only Australian show I really watch. But for some reason over the past two years I'm getting so tired of all the drama going on. Bringing Johnny back was eventful - but not surprisingly they killed him like they've killed many villians before him (Felix, Sarah, Zoe, just to name a few) which is stupid. I don't think in real life stalkers, murderers and crazy psycho people die in real life once they go for their revenge. Seeing how much drama has happened, I'm surprised people will still move to Summer Bay! I'm sad to see Sally go - she's been one of the best characters on the show, but I'm very interested to see how the show will go without her. I'm hoping they can recover from Sally leaving and make the show more substancial. I'm sick of all the drama - but then if it's completely perfect, the show will be boring. I just hope they can make their drama more realistic and think of ideas outside of the box, not just bringing back villians that have all been done before.

I used to love watchin home and away,and i thought it woz really good,but now i think its gone really down hill,the storylines are'nt near as good as they used to be but its more how long they drag them out that bothers me,they also used to have really good looking guys in it too,well they have afew but they could do with puttin in some more,i think im still alittle bitter after they killed off noah i no it woz awhile ago but he woz really cute,but im still watching it waiting for it ta get better i have hope
ok so it depends what episode it is... some i like some "BORING" oh well... dont u think its abit weird Sam and
Jack i mean c'mon Martha that is sooo old.... but u no wat they say u cant help who you fall in love with... and Sally and Brad i guess it's all complicated. it is a good show abit dramatic dontt you think.... it's always changing every episode so i think if you dont already watch it that you should... its basically about a little home town "summer bay" lots of problems happening ETC stalkers, natural disasters, marriage break downs, family separations (break downs) back stabbing friends, lieing and cheating ETC its really a drama kind of soapy romantic TV show. last season there was Martha getting caught out trying on Sam's wedding dress and Jack still having feeling for Martha after the incident with the other police ( i dont call police cops cuz my dad is a police and they find the term "cop" effensive") jack about to marry sam but i guess Martha is gonna ruin EVERYTHING... poor Rory. always something happening in summer bay like that guy who likes Belle man he scares me....
This is an all right show about the people living in the town of Summer Bay, their lives and so on, just like any other soap. I got into it, when I saw it while my mum and sister were watching, and I started watching too.
It gets boring after a while, when there is no interesting plot, but when a good plot appears, I really want to watch. I think the show needs to do something to make this a bit more interesting.
My favourite character of all time, for some peculiar reason, is Morag Bellingham, probably because she is funny, but I also like Sally, Jack, Leah and Lucas from the current cast.
Home and Away is an Australian soap focussing around a foster home in Summer Bay, a fictional town north of Sydney.
The foster home is ideal for bringing characters in and out of the show easily without having to come up with obscure storylines.
Home and Away is an Australian soap produced in 1987 going to air in 1988. In New Zealand it broadcasts on TV3 at 5:30pm weekdays and as an omnibus showing the past week's episodes on Sunday at 10:15am (depending on other events that may be broadcast that morning). TV3 has since been copied by TV2, placing rival Aussie soap Neighbours at similar times.
The omnibus is known to be popular amongst teens and 20-somethings as New Zealand law states that no advertising can be broadcast on Sunday mornings, making the Home and Away catchups ideal.
Home and Away is not a typical Soap Opera in that it operates in hours and days per episode rather than your typical minute for minute soap where after a single episode only an hour has passed.
It is however a great soap that you can leave and come back to at any time, this is in part to the characters staying long term including Alf Stewart (Ray Meagher) and Sally Fletcher (Kate Richie) who has only recently left the show and to the clever writing of the script in that they get the characters to talk about past events, helping you to catch up. This is done simply as gossip amongst the characters but is extremely helpful and possibly one of the reasons it is so popular.
