And finally, somebody else (two people no less) is onto Izzy's bitchiness.
This will totally jinx us, and everyone will hate me, but I can't believe there's been no Horsebutt family for about a week. Yay!

But anyhoo, I'm totally for Steph and Max breaking up, 'cos Max is a cranky old whinger, and Steph can do much better. Even a Curry brother is 110% better!

I know! Even if Mal is more interested in a bit of Karl smackdown, great to see that Boyd is onto Bitchzzy, and he's making sure that Steph is not getting hurt. Please, please let Bitchzzy get what's coming to her.
What's the deal with Malcolm coming back anyway? Was he back in the '03 finale? And is just me, or was Mal always such a wooden, shite actor? Seriously Dude, dial down the aussie block method acting already!! Watching him have to carry a scene on his own (when he was on the phone to Susan) just goes to show how bad an actor he was. I was cringing for him!

Come on previews chick, do you seriously expect us to believe there's a possibility Harold was kidnapped from a fully staffed hospital in the few seconds Lou said he'd be gone? The only question remaining is has he run away, or is he simply in the toilet/having tests/at physio and not missing at all? Not that it matters since he will probably be found before the first ad break, and definitely by the end of the episode.

As for the Steph Vs. Izzy thing, she interfered no more than other people, less than other people. And, as she is working against Sax, I don't really see the problem. Root for her, people. If she wins Sax is no more!

Bitchzzy is clever at turning everything into "poor Izzy". In fact, she truly is the Dani of Neighbours. It's.All.About.Bitchzzy.
She'll tell Karl that she's feeling unwelcome at home, but most of it is because she won't pay Sad Sack Max back the loan, she's planting wrong ideas in the kids heads about Steph, and lets whatever issues she had growing up affect how she interacts with other people.
As for Karl, I haven't decided whether Bitchzzy wanted what she can't have, and now Karl is "aingle" she doesn't want him anymore, or whether it's all part of her grand scheme, or even it all has to do with her "happy family" issues and she's just a homewrecker.

I still like Izzy. And I still think Serena is more of a Dani than Izzy. She's a bitch, but has no blame in the Kennedy break-up or whatever it is. It's all Karl. And Mal is just too much of a dropkick to realise it.
In other news, Sky's going blonde. Which is actually the actresses original hair colour, she looks totally different though, a lot like our good friend Michelle Scully really.

Have decided to anoint Lilijana at "Clueless". Your daughter and niece are having a ferocious bitchfight, however when told it was nothing, thought no more of it. Plus the whole HorseButt financial loss deception.
Am looking forward to the Serena bikini photo smackdown though!
2/2 - David and Liljana clash over Serena's punishment. Lou witnesses the extent of Trixie's pain. Summer begins to appreciate Sky's point of view.
3/2 - Serena is humiliated when Liljana vents her anger publicly at Chris. Izzy helps David realise Harold's behaviour isn't normal. Lou makes a surprise commitment for Trixie. Fear turns to opportunity when Stuart gets a visit from the law.
4/2 - Karl continues to keep the truth from Susan. Lyn tells Susan about Karl and Izzy. Audrey suffers a terrible accident. Harold is not happy with Lou & Trixie's news. Reality TV beckons Joe and Lyn.
5/2 - Karl needs more time apart from Susan. Stuart considers life as a cop. Joe cuts Jack down to size. Sky and Boyd prepare for a sleepover. Mal announces he is selling the Hoyland House.
6/2 - Susan insists that Karl undertake couples therapy. Steph, Max and Izzy misunderstand the house situation. Sky and Boyd struggle with intimacy. Joe avoids asking Jack to help him on-site. Summer takes Sky's advice with Declan.

This? Is Why Neighbours is the superior show when it comes to portraying teenagers. H&A writers should be spending 6:30pm weeknights checking out their competition.

And now, the Serena Smackdown Update:
Lights, camera, Serena
Serena Bishop is humiliated when she finds out the shocking truth about the man she has fallen for, photographer Chris Cousens.
In dramatic scenes, Serena (Lara Sacher) goes to see Chris (Simon Mallory), who has promised to launch her modelling career, and is stunned when she finds a hidden camera he had set up to record their intimate encounters.Gee, we never saw this coming
“Serena is about to sleep with Chris when the phone rings,” Lara reveals.
While Chris answers the phone, Serena makes the awful discovery.
An angry Serena “refuses to give Chris the satisfaction of crying”. “She breaks down afterwards when she’s outside by herself,” Lara explains.
Lara, who joined the cast of Neighbours halfway through last year, admits this has been a challenging storyline for her to film.
“It was quite confronting,” she says. “I think this is a big coming-of-age for Serena. She will always be very sheltered, but this teaches her a lot.”
This is combined with Ch10 advertising that tonights' episode is one that they tried to ban (yeah right). They probably only tried to ban it 'cos tonight might actually be entertaining!

What reality TV are Joe and Lyn going on? Maybe they're the 14th Hothouse couple. I sense a terribly ridiculous storyline approaching. And maybe the craptacularness of it all is what kills Joe?
Posted Feb 2, 2004 @ 6:05 AM
I love that Harold has blown his decency and tact chip!
Mebbe Joe and Lyn go to "the resort", and Joe runs off with a nubile young babe.

The Harold smackdown was awesome!
Posted Feb 3, 2004 @ 1:41 AM
bluezombie, Harold basically told Lou that Trixie was a golddigger. There was some other minor insults towards her but it was the golddigger comment that hit it home for me.

It was Scruffy that was run over tonight, and not that bitch of Libby's, wasn't it?
Posted Feb 4, 2004 @ 6:04 AM
The Audrey/Scruffy accident, and Karl's reaction afterwards were the only things which made this not a great episode tonight. Karl was practically hysterical, as though his one great love had died. Seriously, calm down.

Did I miss anything the last 2 nights? Was up in Sydney playing a great game of "Override Mommy's authority" with my mother and grandmother.
12/2 - Serena steps closer to danger. Goody. David and Lil worry about Svetlanka's arrival. Is she as vague as Lilijana? Lou and Trixie leave. Lou leaving? For good? Toadie comes face to face with Rocco's darker side. The Scully's audition for reality TV.
13/2 - Serena discovers the truth regarding Chris. Jack impresses Joe at work. Liljana's controlling mother arrives.
16/2 - David seeks revenge for his daughter. If she was my kid, I sure would want revenge as well! Sky's attempts to get back at Erin goes horribly wrong.
As for TV Week....
A sad farewell
An era comes to an emotional end this week when Dr Karl Kennedy takes his leave from Ramsay Street!
Increasingly distraught over their marriage problems, Karl’s (Alan Fletcher) wife, Susan (Jackie Woodburne), begins to suspect that he is secretly meeting up with the beautiful Izzy (Natalie Bassingthwaighte).
Determined to try and find out the truth, she finally approaches Izzy and insists on some answers.
Later, returning home after their meeting, Susan packs Karl’s bags and asks him to leave.
Karl is very surprised, but his shock turns to humiliation when he finds himself driving out of Ramsay Street with all of his neighbours watching.
Everyone in the street has taken sides over the Kennedy marriage breakdown, and Karl suddenly feels very much like the villain.
I didn't catch this ... why does it look like everyone (Lou, Karl) is leaving, but Joe is the one who got sacked??
