I felt like the first half of the episode was there to remind us about how boring last season was.  ph34r.gif

Oh, the whole retta/carbo stuff,  especially carbo going on about how it just wasn't meant to be.  Couldn't they have come up with something else?

Hugh Sheridan cannot act. I don't mind the rest of them, but he bugs me with his sad dog face. He should just stick with play school.

Im not sure where they can really go from here. No move to the country, no baby, so basically everything stays the same. Then a last ditch effort for interest in bringing back the rest of the family.

So... they're hardly packed to the rafters with ACTUAL rafters anymore hey.  sad.gif

I like it better when the kids are home... *sigh*

I want to know why Ruby isn't getting any older? She should be like 3 1/2 now but, she's still very young. I know it's petty it just annoys me.

There not at all packed to the rafters, I think this will be the last season. The storyline seems to be struggling.

LOL i was thinking that just the other day.  They said something about her "not talking" and I thought, "still not talking? red flag..."  It's a bit Maggie Simpson, really.

I watched last night after taping it on foxtel. I said halfway through  that I only give the series another year at most. When they start bringing in characters who are peripherally related to minor charcters you know its all gone to hell in a handbasket. Pity as I really liked it originally but its gone downhill FAST.Even  Julie is annoying now.  I think Coby is the only character still watchable .Very sad.

I must admit I went a bit   oomg.gif at the no talking.  

The way has been scripted lately it has Julie talking like she doesn't even have a child at home.

I don't think it will last much longer either.

Posted 15 February 2013 - 03:37 PM

Maybe that's where the storyline is heading. Julie will attend a MCHN appointment & find out Ruby needs to see a speech therapist or something  shrug.gif

Something has to happen or else we will all die of boredom.

Ruby seems so young still because the current episodes being shown were originally scripted and shot to be shown last year.  The network pulled the season off halfway through so we haven't seen Ruby's 3rd birthday yet, given that she was born around the season finale of S2 she's obviously a December kid.  The current episodes I think make her around 2.5 which is still late for not talking especially since she goes to daycare and someone there would have mentioned it as a potential issue.

But I agree, there is a good chance there won't be any new episodes filmed.

Wasn't the fire supposed to happen on Tues episode?  I watched online last night and waited the whole hour for it lol, as awful as that sounds.

#22 Etcetera

Posted 17 February 2013 - 05:44 PM

I think the fire is Ted's fault and he just left the BBQ on or some such.

Anybody else giving up on this show ?

Last night was the last time we'll bother after watching the series from the beginning. The story lines are just ridiculous now and the characters weak. Its such a shame so many of the original cast left as I think it started going downhill then.

Absolutely.  It is just so dull.  I get about halfway through it and honestly I am cringing at the bad acting and yawning in boredom.

This season was pitched in the ads as being the last season, so no surprises there.
