I overheard someone talking about 'The Old Ones' when I was in town at lunch. Perhaps we will need the garlic shampoo after all...

Kia-Ora. I used to love that stuff when I was a kid, but it made me high as a kite.

Kia-Ora - the only thing on my list that I missed trying on my England trip.

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

The chorus to bastilles Pompeii always reminds me of Hal

In The Hard Problem "Vampire" Bats, and when heard the "You of all people" quote...

funny this popped up and i scrolled down to the Kia Ora discussion. Couple months ago some BHers came to my house for the weekend (to watch The Hard Problem thru NTLive at a theatre near me because there were none close to them) and I ordered a litre of Kia Ora on Amazon from a UK shop.  Pricing was not bad, it was a novel thing and I knew the girls would get a kick out of it, and they actually "upgraded" me to 2 litre size bottle.  Which it says makes something like 45 cups!  I presume they didn't have a 1 litre.

We were giddy try it! I poured some in a cup, diluted, and took a sip.  It was nasty! I read the bottle and it says "no added sugar" so suspicious I looked at the ingredients and it's sweetened with aspartame. I dislike soda in particular, and "diet" anything in general, so I was completely disappointed.  And normally it takes a sip or two to identify the aftertaste of aspartame, but with the Kia Ora, literally the second it hits your tongue you want to spit it out.  Everyone, including my two kids agreed!  We tried mixing it with some alcohol into mixed drinks, but nope, still nasty. Looked up the info online, I had not ordered the sugar free, and it turns out they only make the sugar free now.  So.....down the drain it all went.

No kiaora for me then.  hmm

Me too Kallie!

An entirely different character obvs, but did anyone else see a teeny tiny touch of Hal in Spike's more arrogant moments?

Whimsy, kia ora is truly yuck... maybe our theories of what happens to Hal when he drinks kia ora are all wrong.. and it is in fact that he spews his guts up spectaculary!

The Kia Ora story is hilarious, Whimsyfox.  I've always wondered what it would taste like.  Now I don't have to even try it.  I can't stand artificially sweetened drinks or drinks sweetened with high fructose corn syrup.  I think they both taste awful.

Sorry about your Kia-Ora disappointment, whimsy. It never tasted nice and was more renowned for it's artificial food colouring which made children hyper! It had an awesome TV advertising though with one of those songs that everyone of a certain age knows! I'm sure it will be on YouTube somewhere!

Sure I had Kia-Ora... Wasn't the advert something like "we all adora... Kia-Ora". Trying to remember and all I can come up with is the "umbongo" advert...

It was the "It's too orangey for crows, it's just for me and my dog" advert!

"....I'll be your dog....."   Ahhhh....they don't make ads like that any more. Lol!!

The ad is on youtube - or at least it was. I remember making my kids watch it to convince them that I hadn't made the song up! (Can't think why I would've been singing it!)

Yes......Kia-ora was always pretty nasty!  And - like you said, rosie - there's a good reason why the BH writers specifically chose it as the drink Hal shouldn't have.....it had a reputation for hyper-activating(?!) children due to all the additives.  I totally share Annie's bemusement that it's still being made!

Sorry nobody warned you whimsy!

One Kia Ora theory, the one I subscribe to, is that the additives and artificial sugar affect Hal like they do autistic children. I think rubyrosettared, who has an autistic son, proposed it.  And then this was tangentially supported last year by Jamie Mathieson saying that Hal is a bit autistic. So I imagine it makes him hyper, but in a more "adult" like way. As Sarah Dollard said he acts like a loud, obnoxious, drunk, horny frat boy...  biggrin

I'm still looking

This song reminds me always about Hal and Sylvie, maybe littlebit about Hal and Alex too.

 

 

The last bridge says it all:

But it's a bad debt
Certain death
But I want what I want
And I gotta get it
When the fire dies
Darkened skies
Hot ash, dead match
Only smoke is left
It's a bad debt
Certain death
But I want what I want
And I got to get it
When the fire dies
Dark in the skies
Hot as a match
Only smoke is left

Good choice jozie 

Army of two by olly murs always reminds me of Hal and cutler 

So just follow my lead, repeat after me 

Our faith is the bullet, hope is the gun 

And love is all we need

Now fears on the run

We've already won 

Now march with the band, raise your right hand 

We've only just begun

Hello! First time posting.
I started working at a National Trust property this year that's been used for filming Being Human (and Doctor Who, and Sherlock - sadly all before I got there!), so pretty much every day I go into work I'm reminded of Hal!

Wow, Aradia, that sounds really cool! It sounds like a place that might get used for filming in the future too. There's no telling who you might end up seeing.

Here's hoping! It wasn't being looked after by the Trust when most of the previous filming took place, but I'm hoping Doctor Who and Sherlock will come back again (it's in South Wales, so it's possible!).
