Trivia

When the recurring character of Alan Fisher (Simon Kay) was killed-off, the producers later regretted their decision due to a fan back-lash. Several ideas were penned where the actor could make a believable return, including one where a movie was made on Alan's novel, "The Crest of a Wave" (although the novel wasn't launched until 2001 in the show), and Simon would show up as another character "with a moustache" to audition for the lead, stunning other cast members with his resemblance to the dead Alan.

One of the best TV shows ever made!
21 November 2000 | by (Skellefteå, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Home and Away is definitely my favorite TV show. There are not many shows made that compares to this one. It´s a great show with interesting storylines, good actors and a good script. There is not much more to add, really...

Home and Away is definitely the best Australian show ever made, and even counting shows from all countries, it´s still one of the very best. I can definitely recommend you all to watch this.

Since I live in Scandinavia, we are a couple of years behind Australia in the airings so I haven´t seen the last couple of years of the Australian productions, plus that the stations here skipped a number of episodes in the beginning, but the 600 or so episodes that I have seen has been great!
