Neighbours - unmissable drama



This is it. I can see why the cast would hate it. Just a bunch of scenes, no comments from cast, crew or peers about how influential the show has been. Or about the careers it launched. So poorly done.

Yes it does seem a bit short for such a long-running show, but I guess they would’ve been criticised for being disingenuous if they went on too long about it when it wasn’t nominated for anything and not that big in Australia anymore.

It might be more appropriate to have a celebration at the National TV Awards in the UK.
 
All the cast excelled themselves with Hendrix's death and its aftermath. So beautifully done.

In other news, I found the actress playing Estelle to be a real let down. Terese's mother needed a stronger performer in the role IMO.
 
They/them, he/him
Is Morgana returning for the final episode(s)? Naomi deserves a fitting send off for being such an iconic, horny queen!
 
Perhaps as Neighbours is still eligible for awards next year, there will be a bigger tribute then?
Maybe. But it just feels like, they knew the cast had just finished filming and would be feeling a way. There would have been nothing wrong with getting them all up on stage, to say thank you for everything the show has done. Even if they didn't feel they deserved any nominations from the past year, a proper acknowledgement of 37 years was needed. Not next year when there's a chance that most of them won't even turn up.

Also, I love this! And well said:
 
Judging by some of the spoilers released today, the scriptwriters must have picked storylines out of a hat.

Shane Ramsay returning as a millionaire to potentially invest in Lassiters? Totally plausible

Mal Kennedy ditching his wife to date Izzy? Makes perfect sense

Not like Izzy stealing married men and swindling them is out of character, though, especially if it’s a Kennedy! Home wrecking queen.
