Discussion in 'Australian & New Zealand Soaps' started by JROG, Sep 12, 2017.
You are pretty much up to where I am now....
Patricia is trying to convince Gordon that she deserves a second chance...well, not in such direct words, of course.
Fiona tried to explain to David how calculated Patricia can be, but her reasoning was so complicated (basically cramming 50 eps of soap into a few sentences) that even I could not understand what she was saying - and I know more than David.
Or is it Ramberg/Ramburg?
And yet another hunk with gorgeous hair joins the cast of S&D.
Noel Devlin played by Richard Gillespie - according to IMDB it was his only role - maybe his profile is incomplete? Does anyone know more about this actor?
I'd just gotten back into watching again this week but it appears to have been taken down from YouTube. How will I find out if our sons and daughters are what, we too, were once about now?
There are more videos by other uploaders, but not the complete series.
I am devastated because I was "living" Sons & Daughters - when I didn't watch it I was thinking of/dreaming about it.
I've got plenty of other stuff to watch, but right now I'm in mourning and I don't want to watch something else.
Yes, I looked and the first series is on Dailymotion. After that, it appears to be just sporadic episodes from the DVD releases and then a few from the last year or so. Better than nowt I suppose.
No, not better than nowt - I need to watch everything.
S&D is my most-wanted soap to re-watch, and eventhough I hadn't planned to watch these particular uploads (for reasons stated in a previous discussion) I am completely hooked now.
Every morning I wake up thinking "yes! more episodes to watch today!" but this morning there was nothing to look forward to.
I am seriously depressed and don't feel like discussing any other soap at all at the moment.
Incidentally, does "private video" means the same as "deleted video"?
I remember discussing the show with a friend at school and he described her as being "like a vampire". It seemed to fit then and it still does.
It's the same for me this time round. Watching Pat McDonald in Number 96 since the last time I saw S&D in full has helped with that, because Dorrie and Fiona are worlds apart.
I think that's a complicated one and I think there's more than is being said. I think it partly has to do with how Patricia landed Gordon (ostensibly as a carer for his child, but with the intention of working on Gordon).
But I think it has as much to do with Wayne as Rosie. I'd imagine that after Gordon's first wife died, Rosie became a de facto nanny to Wayne and probably got very attached to him. Patricia's arrival would have ruffled some of Rosie's feathers on that level.
Oh my. You've overtaken me. This is what I get for not watching for ten days.
Yes. I was looking forward to watching episode 70 last night and found it wasn't there. The same episode is on another YouTube channel, so I'll keep watching until I'm no longer able to watch consecutive episodes. Then I'll be cold turkey time.
Important update! @Mel O'Drama, @Alexis, @Julia's Gun and @Carrie Fairchild
The Sons & Daughters channel has announced that the videos will be offline for a few weeks due to some kind of update or maintenance.
So...after episode 100 I'm going to watch CONNIE or something.
That's not so bad then. At least they haven't disappeared forever, or been hidden from public view permanently.
While I wait, at least I can console myself that my last episode (69) ended with a beautiful freeze frame of Patricia looking pensive, troubled and glamorous.
But I still may watch the Episode 70 that I found... just to round things off.
Thanks Willie. Much like love, the S&D YouTube playlist is very strange, it can come and go
As much as I dislike the Dailymotion platform, I might struggle on with the episodes there while we wait for the YouTube episodes to make their Alison Carr style return.
Tough decision. A round number seems the way to go, but to cliffhanger it with an end-of-a-decade number creates a sense of melancholy and excitement.
Just checked some random videos and I must say the picture quality is really poor, especially if you watch it in full screen.
Which is fine for the really obscure soap like Flamingo Road, but S&D has been on YouTube for years now.
Then again, knowing that they are available - and S&D being so very addictive - it must be hard to restrain yourself.
You could always opt for "Kidnap-Me", a special service that helps to protect you from yourself.
I agree, at least it explains why Charlie never walks, she glides and slithers.
And every time she says "I'm doing nothing today" I imagine that she would do exactly nothing, like a vampire in its coffin.
Gosh, imagine if Dorrie was Fiona's twin sister...
Excellent point. But in that case it was mostly Gordon's fault since he was looking for a nanny - if it hadn't been Patricia it would have been someone else.
When Beryl told her she grew up in the country she (Rosie) instantly liked her. Somehow this struck me as some kind of snobbery, not the same as the Sydney elite, but there was a sense of superiority and favouristism.
The jealousy between John and Angela (mostly about their respective partners) continues to be funny, disturbing, endearing and sexy-kinky all in one.
The open hositility between Angela and Pru is very entertaining, and it came close to blows.
Additionally, the war between Pat & Babs is now a fact so there will be no shortage of fabulous bitchery.
Patricia manages to win Gordon back, and it was yet another example of her manipulative skills.
Basically, she gave him the chance to think the worst of her (and she actually did all those things) while simultaneously make him feel guilty for doing so.
It's like the sum of two negatives (one true, one false) becoming a positive. She's a terrific bluffer.
The level of performances doesn't always depend on the actors.
Whenever Beryl gets mad she usually has a very good reason, but Wayne's antagonism towards John wasn't based in reality, it's what Patricia wanted him to think, and the result was laughing-out-loud hammy.
Episodes 89 and 90 were great! They all hate each other now, and John has become a full time Hamilton. Shocking!
This could have been a season finale cliffhanger.
I like the idea of them swapping places and confusing everyone. With all the deaths on S&D, Dorrie could would have numerous opportunities to say "last will and testicles". And she could confess to people that she used to be a Protestant.
Yes indeed. But human nature dictates that, more often than not, the injured party blames the third party and not the person they knew to begin with. It's like when a man has an affair and the wife takes it out on the mistress, even though it's the husband that's betrayed her.
I like it. It's another layer to the "us" and "them" factor on the series.
Are you watching them on Daily Motion now, Willie?
No, uploader "Pointer View" has videos (up to ep 100) in the same quality as the S&D channel.
Oh yay. And they've even uploaded a chipmunk version of the theme song.
They were bosom buddies...
