I haven't seen any threads on Neighbours Australian pace and thought I would start one.

How convenient that a week and a half after announcing she was pregnant with Lucas' baby, Vanessa has moved in his house (invited by the annoying Kate). And she has no friends or family at all!

Vanessa - good? bad? or inbetween? Not too sure yet...

I think she's genuine and I think Lucas will eventually get together with her: Neighbours like to do happy endings for characters don't they...

In other news, Jade's new dog is too cute!! And did Tash's dad eventually sell the house, or not yet? I can't remember what happened there...

This storyline annoys me...there is no way Michael would decide to sell his house so quickly leaving his beloved daughter homeless...that goes completely against their relationship upto now...no matter how it was when he left

So they get rid of him just so they can move in their token ethnics?

I liked Michael and Emilia.

2 legit, I think your post could be deemed as racist...

The Kapoors are not token ethnics, they represent a part of society that has not been represented in Ramsay Street before.

It is 2012 after all...

Hardly racist.

They've been brought in because some people were moaning last year that the Aussie soaps were too white.

Well, it was too white, same as it was too hetero.

Chris started as a token gay, and has rapidly become a favourite (of mine, anyway).
Hoping the Kapoors will go the same way.
Although I'm a bit of a fag-hag, so I don't think they'll do it for me quite as much as Christos does.

The Erinsborough News Spy storyline lasted only one episode! I thought it might have gone on a little longer.

Surely Paul has the final say on things as he is the owner??...Especially on the advertising side.

I haven't seen todays EP yet, what was up with the spy storyline? I think they are making Paul into a token panto villain, always doing bad things for no real reason. Like why exactly did he try to frame Ajay with the party thing? Ajay didn't even do anything to Paul !

As for the token ethnics thing: there is no reason why a non-white family can't live on the street withoutbeing the ''token ethnic family"

Paul got one of the reporters to spy on what Susan was doing. She reported back on how things were going, he's not happy and he wanted her to get into Susan's e-mail. She got chatting to Summer and when Summer was logging onto Susan's e-mail (Susan had given her it to go through the Editor's letters) the spy saw Summer type it in while Summer was busy looking at Andrew. Susan went to Charlie's and talked to Tash who said about some woman with Paul, Susan the super sleuth figured there was a spy and got the identity from Tash as the spy was wearing an orange scarf. Confrontation time and Susan fired the spy and Summer got an official warning. After all of that don't remember the spy's name!

I love Chris, his scene with Tash in the house on Wednesday was so lovely!

I was hoping that Tash and Chris were going to live in Number 32 together permanently but with Michael selling it so quickly that is now not going to happen.

Does anyone know where Tash ends up living?

Thanks vaslav, had a feeling that's where Tash would end up.

I hope Chris moves into Ramsay Street soon.

Maybe Freckles could move in with Paul and Andrew.

I think Karl with Summer and Tash could be a good dynamic.

I like Susans new appartment, I hope we see it more often.

I didnt watch neighbours for ten years so I don't think i saw it when paul had it. It may be the same set but it's been modernised since Drew/Libby had it.

I really don't think Susan's apartment was the one they used for Karl/Izzy, Drew/Libby and Paul. It's far too different. It's nice looking though, so I hope we get to see it again.
