Trivia

Hayley's (Bec Hewitt) pregnancy was written for the show before Cartwright found out she really was pregnant. She was replaced by Ella Scott Lynch, who played the part for the remainder of the year. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the years, numerous characters have referred to "the city" (meaning Sydney) as being either "up" or "down" from Summer Bay. The general consensus, however, is that Summer Bay is north of Sydney (approximately 100km away), as is the real-life filming location. See more »

Past Glories
28 February 2001 | by Oilers85See all my reviews

Home & Away had its best days in the mid 90's when they actually had good actors and a few decent storylines. It started to go down hill after about 1997 when the characters became all to similar and the storylines revisited (but then again what soapy doesn't?). This show is watchable until you feel the recycling and then its a turnoff. I do admire a couple of the actors though who have stuck with the show and not got stars in their eyes and expectations beyond their abilities.
