And so with this, I prefer watching local dramas, on which I guess, one of the biggest mistakes I have ever did.
I have always loved the fact that I am a Filipino, and I would be very confident to take an oath that I have never dreamed of changing my nationality. Even though there are many issues to be ashamed of in this country, there are still good things that are far greater to talk about. But then, it is very incroyable on how some Pinoy dramas left me hanging with the statement: Oh Great. Shame on you Pearl of the Orient.
Even before it had started, I was quite embarrassed on how they copied almost 50% of Twilight's concept, except that the two freaks have fallen in love with each other, which left the mortals completely off the story. But who can blame them on doing so? Many people have been fascinated with vampires and werewolves and the love in between. I gave it a try, since I found it nice how they made the story as a sequel of Lobo, wherein the lead role, Lia Ortega, happened to be the daughter of the werewolf Lyka and the soldier Noah Ortega. Matteo, on the other hand, was the only vampire who was conceived through a mortal mother, thus making him different and stronger than anyone of his kind. Needless to say, to add a spice on their lovestory, they happened to be destined to kill each other to protect their kins. But at the later part of the story, they realized that the prophecy was misunderstood, so that means a sort of an extreme stupidity caused the whole war between them, wow, very artistic.
On the other hand, I like how it ended up that the ultimate monster was not their child, it was Matteo's foster brother and Lia's stalker, Lucas, who was a skipped werewolf (tinalunang lobo daw 'eh!) was bitten by a vampire, and a crossbreeding happened.
I really expected that Lia and Matteo's daughter would be the one to defeat Lucas, I actually thought that the role will be played by Jesse Mendiola. But then again,things fell completely trashy: the main fight happened between the three of them, and where? On an abandoned warehouse, just like FPJ's times, with matching fires and explosions.
ABS-CBN did a very great job on picking celebrities to fill out the roles for the remake of the hit tv series Mara Clara. Especially Julia Montes, the one who plays Clara, she is the very first Pinay celebrity that almost made me cry. The way the story flowed was also good, since it didn't stick to the old plot where everything happens just between Mara and Clara, and all you will see would be endless slaps and pulling of hairs without any further reasons. The way they showed family connection between each and every character in the story was swell too and the lines were also delivered well with the right timing.
And so, I really don't get it why on Earth have they not formulated a very good ending! The scene when Clara didn't left Gary (her biological father, main antagonist) in the house where they hid Alvira and Mara, and even urged Gary to pretend he would shoot her if the cops will arrest him, had actually touched my heart so badly. I really thought that Gary would be shot by the snipper because he would block it for Clara, but then I was wrong, the snipper just missed him, so another ultimate stupidity came in the story. And now, according to the teasers, the story would end up again on an abandoned building. I guess ABS really has a heart for old, abandoned places.
Because I really really love Saab Magalona, I researched all her tv shows and guesting, and I am very ecstatic to now that she had a tv show on TV5, the so-called Lipgloss. I didn't hesitate to researched about it and made up my mind that I would download the whole series online if possible. I watched its first episode on youtube, and I was welcomed with a very bad ambiance What-the-F*ck-is-this. It had the same opening style as Gossip Girl, it showed a site where the conspiracies and gossips about the famous and richest kids on the blocks were posted. I still continued watching, and realized it had the same freaking story as Gossip Girl's season one! Where Serena had a secret affair with Nate who happened to be her best friend Blair's boyfriend! And that was how all the cat fights rooted from!
And you know it already. I stopped. And I actually laughed. I discovered a funded and aired parody of Gossip Girl in national television.
But hey! I still love Saab! I know she's just being professional, so she played the role still. I love you forever Saab!
Yes! I wouldn't review any GMA dramas because... I don't even bother watching them. I know that it would either make me laugh or make drool whenever their is a heart-breaking-moment-as-they-say-it-is. Oh, except if there is some Magalona boys there.
