Shirts off, one and all, it's a hormonal teen week and we're here for it!

Dipi fully installs herself over at the Cannery to our dismay; and an adorable Elmaloglou cherub turns up to Koyle's Buddy Club with a gangster-scientist's gun!
CJ, Kate and Vaya recap the week of February 3 on Neighbours, in the PirateNet Studios.
Just a cheeky little Episode 150! No biggie. Karl, Paul and Toadie try to recruit Pufferfish into their Little Cheaters' Club after news of his lips being near Roxy's oozes out on to the street; plus Koyle's Ceramic Sex Doll, and WHAT'S IN THE GODDAM BOX??

Our final episode of 2019 recaps Christmas Day on Ramsay Street! And what else do we get in our stockings but a prison escapee on the loose... A safe and happy festive season to you from CJ, Kate and Vaya at PirateNet HQ.
RobRob is Kidneyrella! His kidneys are a match for David and now he holds all the power over papa Paul... Also Finn's mum Claudia drops a love triangle grenade on the Kennedy house; and Jimmy's back from mixing with the wrong crowd in New York, to prove that Koyle is a dropkick. Only a couple of sleeps till Xmas!
Erinsborough's 3rd wedding of the year goes off without a hitch except for Karl pocketing some blue vein; Amy has a pregnancy scare that leads to a Koyle baby-daddy scare; Leo's back to hand out kidneys; but the standout moment of the week was Elly's Awkward City Limits lunch with the mother of Amnesiac Terrorist Millsy! CJ, Kate and Vaya pull up seats in the PirateNet Studios to unpack the latest from Neighbours in the week of December 11, 2019...
Bea and Vi have to crash Ned's underground fighting ring for him to see the light and call it quits; the Class Action suit is settled in an easy day of work for Toad, the Mother of Millsy and Dry Ice blows into town with a dastardly offsider in tow; and Pierce and Chloe celebrate their Hucks while Hendrix tries his signature move: the no-consent-kiss.

CJ, Kate and Vaya in the PirateNet Studios recap the week of November 11, 2019 in which Lassiters is in the literal shit, Terage teeters on the edge of the wagon, Toadie's charity needs charity and Elly's teaching career finally gets the dunce's cap.
The Neighbours who haven't said #NupToTheCup hit up the Lassiters marquee in style for Melbourne Cup Day but the big loser of the day is Pierce Greyson's parenting. We score a daily double with two proposals; Hendrix hits up Kogan.com to deck out his new room in the Bren Den; and Harlow's fly-by-night mother Prue arrives to launch truthbombs on the Robinsons. CJ, Kate and Vaya gather around various mustards that adorn CJ's dining table in the mobile PirateNet Studios to discuss...
CHRISTIE WHELAN BROWNE, star of theatre and TV and Scarlett Brady herself joins Team ScarBra (CJ, Kate and Vaya) in the PirateNet Studios to break down the complexities of this cheese knife-wiedling villain. As Scarlett chases clueless Ned through a hedge maze, the Scooby Gang of Ramsay Street crack the case with zero police involvement! And we also find a moment to discuss Dry Ice's fate in the Swiss avalanche... Christie also blessed us with plenty of behind the scenes scoops; alternative casting, having to kiss your good mate, and the toughest scenes to play out. #TeamScarBra
Muso/ podcaster David James Young joins us to nut out Shlive's illicit desk affair, the ScarBra Captain Problematic storyline... and we enjoy Millsy's live wolf reveal on The Masked Singer Australia!

Plus Paul Mercurio appears to commit the two greatest sins: transphobia, and shirking his dancing commitment.
Jackie Woodburne answers a Neighbuzz listener question in honour of Karl and Susan's 25th Ramsay Street anniversary; and our new favourite Holy Trinity (Sheila, Harlow and Roxy) help kick DetMech to the curb after a shameful display at the 82 wine-tasting. Ding ding!
Kate and Vaya are joined by Bec Dahl from The Bench on Joy.
Scarlett goes off the chain in only her second Ramsay Street appearance! We also enjoy a peaceful/pissful protest at the Erinsborough High loos for trans rights. Plus another cult is in our midst!

Vi loses the V Plates and we are all extremely confronted! CJ, Kate, Vaya and Legal Eagle Bec settle in to chat through NedVi's big step; Puffy's Consent Sandwich; the Preggo Massage Sex Dream with Chelly; Bea and Millsy's clandestine date choice; and Dee's old feelings for Toadie bubbling back up to the surface. What a week of juicy relationship antics! #Neighbours
We hit Rox bottom in the week Paul and Terage get engaged, Roxy kisses Paul, then a mysterious figure crowbars Paul! And that's all before the DeeNA test results for Dee Bliss, Andrea Somers and Nanny Alice/Heather come back! So back to the prison we go for some hypno-magic... CJ and Vaya are in the PirateNet Studios in Melbourne with a whole lot of empathy for everyone in Erinsborough except Gary.

We begin at the gig of Alan Fletcher's band, Waiting Room! Kate and Vaya bring you along for a Sunday session at the Waterhole before launching into the triumphant return of Nanny Alice in her leopard-print best, snooping on Erinsborough the only way she knows how: from behind some shrubbery.

Elly tells Mark that not only is his baby not his baby; but it's Millsy's brother's baby! Every now and then a Neighbours episode comes along that is close to perfect.

Oh and GazCan tries to spring a wedding on Amy, who's like, 'nope'.
Australian Podcast Award winners, Sana Qadar and Natalie Hambly, from The Handmaid's Tale companion podcast 'Eyes on Gilead' join Vaya in Sydney's PirateNet Studios to recap May 14's DISASTERSODE of Neighbours in which a chemical terrorist attack hits the Erinsborough Community Centre!
Master of infinite characters, actor [Emily Taheny] answers the call to speak to Hot Mess Life with Kate and Vaya in the Pirate Net Studios. We try to untangle the newly-minted Dumpster Fire Elly's web of lies that caught up with her on Thursday 2nd May. Concealed paternity, ultrasound crafts, teenage blackmail, and all before midday shots at the Waterhole! We also have to deal with Toadie's reunion with the late Sonya under a humdrum bottle brush tree; and Dr Em steps into our dream role for her as Erinsborough's therapist.
Ariel Kaplan (aka Imogen Willis!) takes a break from soaring up the corporate ladder to chat to CJ and Vaya in the PirateNet Studios about Immy's greatest loves: the law, Mama Terage, and Nurse Daniel Robinson. We hear what it was like in her early days on Neighbours, plus the sassy 2019 comeback to run Toadie's law firm and let AmnesiacTerroristMillsy loose on the cul-de-sac. There's plenty of Hot Mess Elly chat and we mine Ari for fitspo to see if there's any hope for a couple of sedentary over 35s...
Comedy writer and Queen of Twitter Rebecca Shaw (aka [Brocklesnitch]!) allows us into her room at the Flame Tree Motel to recap the Neighbours episode from Wed April 10 that includes AmnesiacTerroristMillsy's defence lawyer Imogen receiving a special delivery of a pig's head on her car bonnet; plus Dipi doing a tarot reading for Hot Mess Elly that predicts a continuous onslaught of hot messes.
Lucy Rogue (future occupant of Mark Brennan's caravan) joins Kate and Vaya in the PirateNet Studios to look back at a wedding, a funeral, and a fizzer of a reception as Detective 'Four Times a Fiance Finally a Groom' Mechanic finally hauls his arse down that aisle. And then during cocktail hour the groom learns his missus did the deed with his sister. The horror! Plus we have thoughts on the new addition to the regular cast: Amnesiac Terrorist Millsy!

Strap in!
Vanessa Muradian is a truly excellent being. Vanessa and Vaya met through a wild radio station party-turned-on-air-segment a decade ago and she was generous enough to visit the PirateNet Studios for this beautiful chat about losing her mum to Ovarian Cancer; and to recap Sonya and Toadie's latest path on their Neighbours cancer journey. She also shares crucial thoughts on the Leo/Terage/Paul triangle, #Chelly, and we stumble down the memory lane of that Mr Not-Quite-Right Party...
Sonya has been diagnosed with Cancer of Everything and it's looking pretty bleak. CJ, Kate and Vaya are barely holding it together so we enlist comedian Cal Wilson to lift our spirits. She's written a children's book called 'George and the Great Bum Stampede' so it's impossible to stay sad when discussing that. Is Neighbours broken though? Or is Rebecchi Torture Porn the new normal we have to accept? [THIS EPISODE CONTAINS THE BIG LEAKED STORYLINE SPOILER]
There's a gunman terrorising the Lassiters Complex and we got him! Actor/director Frank Magree (Raymond Renshaw) connects to the PirateNet Studios via Lyra to give us the insight on what it's like blasting into Erinsborough for a casual siege.

What a time!
The Holy Twitnity of Melbourne Neighbours tweeters celebrates a rare great day for Erinsborough High with the dismissal of Elly; plus the passionless pash between the BrenSis and her brother's girlfriend; and we play one of our favourite games: guessing which cast member is going to bite the dust! Sam Mazur aka @sammynopants, joins Kate and Vaya to deep-dive into the episode that aired Wednesday 5 December, 2018.
It's a case of folie à quatre as Suz Kennedy becomes captain of the Big Little Lies club in the aftermath of Evil Millsy's clifftop tumble - and by the way he was planning to kill all of the high school staff and students in Another Dark Day for Erinsborough High. Luckily there's only one other evil-doer about; Kerry Armstrong as Fake Dee's mad-as-a-cut-snake mother, in disguise as the Rebecchi's saccharine nanny. She's got a touch of the V.C. Andrews about her and her weapon of choice: shortbread. Plus, CJ, Kate and Vaya weigh in on Tyles' release from prison; and Channel Eleven's re-brand as our new peach overlord.
Neighbours played the long-game on Boiled Ham's hot tub murder from last November!! In this mini-ep (definitely not Ep 100!!) CJ, Kate and Vaya plough through all the loose weeds that Cassius has pruned into a neat bouquet, despite his complete lack of horticultural skills.
Plus genealogical product placement; and Aunty Suz makes up Elly's sex bed... WTF?
Is there a doctor in the studio? YES! Neighbours dropped a health BOMBSHELL on poor BrenSis so CJ and Vaya consult friend of the show Dr Cathy to walk us through it; and since Amy is broadcasting her pap smear news around town we debut a new segment called Pap Chat. It's a great time.
That's not clickbait; that's just what Dee is called now. She reckons she's back but we're not falling for this schtick again. From Melbourne's PirateNet studios, Kate and Vaya celebrate the arrival of Pippa from Home and Away; puzzle over same-day interstate travel; and the Ceramic Pig takes the form of Ned and Aarondownthemines in their togs. Also Vaya has a pod-based ANNOUNCEMENT!
Rob 'Millsy' Mills, best known as Evil Millsy/Finn/Patrick on #Neighbours, joins CJ, Kate and Vaya in the PirateNet Studios for an examination of Finn's evil deeds, cold-shoulder fashion, and his musical Robnaissance. Dare you to hate Finn after this!
Australian Podcast Award winner Carla Donnelly from Across the Aisle podcast joins Vaya and Kate to review Puffs the Play starring Rob Millsy Mills! And more importantly, to catch up on 20 years' worth of #Neighbours episodes. Sonya's jacked up on IVF hormones, Colette Nann won't let XanCan be average at her dreams, two tomboys go wedding dress shopping off a jetty, and #FenceGate rattles our chains.
Once in a blue moon, we are blessed with a near perfect episode of #Neighbours. On Thursday 28 June, 2018, we got a cracker. Never in our wildest dreams did we expect the Ned and Loz plot of 2017 to get another run and yet here we are. Also Toadfish has spawned. And there was a dance-a-thon. Bec Dahl joins a Madge-esque Vaya to talk it out.

And, not to be outdone, ColetteNann wears a jaunty side-scarf...
Vaya's besties since the tween years, Jo and Charisma, are in the PirateNet Studios to have flashbacks to 'Nam - er - Year Eight. We get triggered by school camp, trial a new segment about hot guys, celebrate ColetteNann's non-compliance; and judge the school bully's period humour.

The Pregnancy Kaftan comes to PirateNet! Also CJ, Kate and Vaya talk virginity, toxic masculinity and French theory on Neighbours. XanCan is no longer GazCan's little princess and he is as weird about his daughter's body as he could possibly be. And speaking of thrones, Pufferfish puffs up over her piss engine and Dipi draws from Hamilton the musical for pisspiration. Plus the skies open up and the Shitizens of the Week rain down on Erinsborough...
Baby Gigantor is kidnapped and an ex-cop, an ex-priest and an executive assistant head out to buy him back for $25K. Vaya and CJ christen the new PirateNet Studios in West Waratah and do a deep dive on the Neighbours episode from January 10, 2018.
