If you want to go ahead and create new threads for shows, that’s fine. But take a moment to slow down and read what you’ve written before you hit post.

Well there should be more of an effort to add threads since you can’t post in the old forum.

Simple mistake and easy fix. I did FYI reread but these days I am lucky to even know the day.

Have heard some Neighbours promos on SCA the last couple of days, along with the promo push on TEN over summer hopefully reflects in the ratings for the shows return.


#8

Yes has there ever been such a big push for this show…main channel promos and I even heard radio promos today for its return.

I don’t watch it but hope it improves numbers as it’s an Australian icon.

I know the media constantly report about soapie stars trying their luck in Hollywood and here is another one but this time it’s interesting that it’s The Sydney Morning Herald doing the reporting.

Thanks for that.

Although it hasn’t been announced officially yet, Ally Fowler is also joining the cast of Neighbours as Nina Williams, mother of Amy Williams, grandmother of Jimmy and former girlfriend of Paul Robinson. She will now be known as Nene after she “reinvents” herself.

This is a bit of a sore point for long-term viewers because the role of Nina Williams was originally played by Leigh Morgan. Meanwhile, Ally Fowler played a regular character in Neighbours called Zoe Davis in 1986. This isn’t the first time Neighbours has recast a character or recycled an actor for a different role but to some viewers this is annoying.
