Home and Awayfans have called out the popular Channel Seven show for being “unrealistic” after they noticed a bizarre detail.
Taking to social media, a number of viewers questioned whether Justin (James Stewart) still owns his garage as it hasn’t been shown or mentioned since mechanic Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) left Summer Bay in March.
One user inquired on the Home and Away Spoilers & Info Facebook page, “Has Justin sold the garage?” He hasn’t been inside or hired anyone else to operate it from him since Ziggy left. Nothing has been spoken about it.
As soon as they saw the garage was “missing,” fans shared their observations in the comments and questioned whether the writers had overlooked it.
One reader said, “Seriously, it’s not realistic,” and another added, “The writers aren’t consistent with anything at all.”
A third person said, “There haven’t been any cars breaking down, and if there have, nobody to fix them.” And there are no longer any schools or teenagers in the bay.
Is anyone employed by the program? Another person inquired, and a fan made the remark, “It’s Summer Bay, they’re all beach bums.”
Another user said, “No one works in Summer Bay – but can afford to buy breakfast at the diner, lunch at Salt & back to the diner for dinner.”
Another person chimed in, “Wish it worked like that over in Home And Away country where people can just [take] all the time off in the world.
Justin’s community service
Others also compared the plot hole to the fact that Justin has rarely been shown completing the 500 hours of community service he was recently sentenced to.
“What’s happened to Justin’s community service or anger management course?” one fan commented.
“I was thinking the same thing,” another agreed, followed by someone else who replied, “I said the exact same thing last night. And his anger therapy hasn’t helped”.
“Maybe he did it all in one go? Long day…” another joked.
“It’s a bit like Buddy the dog, we haven’t seen him for years and now they bring in a dog lead and no dog,” one viewer pointed out about Justin’s missing pet.
