Jackie Woodburne should really get her dues.
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.
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.Perhaps as Neighbours is still eligible for awards next year, there will be a bigger tribute then?
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
