Well, this must be one of the shortest span opening titles versions ever (three episodes).

Liked Susan’s “Remind me never to cancel plans with you” to Sheila.

I knew Paul would pay Raf’s fine.

The location scenes this week must be the last shot in 2017 which is why Raf’s apology was in the Lassiter’s Reception.

The studio scenes will be 2018 so watch out for any mixed hairstyles.

Interesting they added Chloe to the opening credits but haven't taken Ben out yet. I suppose he is still in the show but its depressingly predictable what's about to happen and then he'll be gone. They need to change the pic of Steph and Paul too, now they don't work together there isn't much of a connection there. Put him with his kids and Jimmy and put Steph with the Brennans or Toadie and SOnya.

The CGI of Number 28 behind Susan didn’t work yet again, she looked like a giant compared to the house, I was very surprised when we then saw her on the backlot backyard as I wondered if she was in-studio only.

Well Terese was awful for not knowing her porter’s name.

The Karl CGI was much better.

The awful production standards are making me irate. It was only 2016 when they hit all all-time high and now they're on a par with production of the 90s. :/

It’s not quite that bad.

As much as I criticise, they deserve praise for attempting to show the backyards of the houses more, even if they’re not real.

I disagree. I've never seen the show look this bad visually, even Susan Bower wouldn't have used a CGI back garden. I'd rather they used no 28 interior than make it look like Susan is walking next to a billboard of the back garden.

The problem is that they don’t have the budget for using the location, they don’t have enough budget for a specialist CGI company to be used and they don’t have the studio space to have ever house set up all the time.

Admittedly these Number 28 backyard scenes didn’t need the CGI or could have been done elsewhere, even if the Number 28 set wasn’t available.

It’s always more noticeable in the last week of the production year too that they film locations a week ahead of interiors, so they’re forced to use every available backlot location for those guests or regulars who won’t be returning the next year.

I'm hoping they're just experimenting and soon realise it's a cheap thing to do. Viewers won't stand for it in this day and age. As mentioned they could have done the scene in a number of other ways, such as setting it somewhere else or writing it differently so Susan wasn't walking from that direction.

I've honestly never seen something so appalling on the show before.

Spoiler:
And apparently they have another scene like this on the boat soon.
