Pinoy TV

There is something about tv commercials and adverts that frightens me. Just try to think about it.Have you been paying attention to those soap ads that come at night? Heck, looking and taking in those messages could make you cringe. One soap promises that you’d be catching all those nasty infections and deadly viruses if you don’t wash with their 100% effective germ protection. Heck, they even have the whole MedTech association to back up their spiel. If only one soap is good enough to wage war againts germs, how come they put out several variants of the
darned thing?

A Bicolano public official is ranting about a TV series for using the Bicol Word ‘Magayon’ in a very degrading manner. Whoa! You’d think he should be thinking of other important stuff, not just causing so much commotion about nothing. In fact, I sincerely advocate rediscovering our own colorful language and dialects to name our characters in soaps and primetime series.Nevermind that the special effects are still not up to par, even with those class C shows they show elsewhere. I say, let’s have more Sinukuans, Tikbalangs, Rajahs, Datus in out shows. Better that the children start remembering what we adults forgot.

Really now. Does Showbiz have to be so early in your day that Unang Hirit have to split all segments so that showbiz crap gets most of the airtime?

I have no interest in watching Fear factor when it was shown with whites doing what most of us thirdworlders do day in day out. But now that Pinoys are in the show, man, I can’t get enough!

Kapuso network should stop airing QTV on a different channel. Just squeeze the  rest of redundance into GMA7 and nake it a 24-hour TV channel.That way they won’t have to bother with paying people to think and create vew show. What new show? The whole network is one big EAT BULAGA!

And please, 24 Oras is a poor excuse for News and Public Affairs. All
that’s missing there are the Dancers.I thought Connie Sison’s entry into GMA7 could add a little class.

And, pray tell, what the hell is German Moreno still doing in TV? The creature can’t even generate moderate product commercials! Kick his scrawny butt out and just extend the evening with mirror shows that they seem to put out nowadays.

Regional TV shows have come of age. Let’s enjoy the local dialect on our own shows.

“NO APPROVED THERAPEUTIC CLAIMS” should really read ” TAKE AT YOUR OWN RISK” . If these meds and food supplements are not really that hot, why did they allow the stuff to get advertised?

If we are to censor a bit of nudity and a little underwear showing on animated series, how come those Violent parts are still intact? What? We think its better the children see senseless violence than a bit of skin? Are we so hung up on morality? or is it selective morality? Adults should see the show in its own context. And please, try to keep up with the younglings. We are being left way back. The kids are learning fast.

The next TV star to emerge will be Joc Joc Bolante. Give the man his own show. Better yet, let him host a Poker Tournament. The man knows how to play.Just look at how he plays the Senate, deadpan and not cringing at every bluff.

Do we really have to have a gazillion variants of toothpaste? And does utterly expensive toothbrushes put out by the same toothpaste manufacturers have to be in tandem with their equally high priced product?

The chocolate man on a deodorant commercial is scaring the bejesus out of me.

Ruffa’s constant yammering, her Ma’s repeated appearances onscreen about this and that are really badly conceived attempts at being in the limelight. Come on, do we really have to know everything about their family?

Speaking of which, how come Ruffa is the only one that is not effectively acting her part in Betty La Fea? Even Megan who is realtively a newcomer, comes off as a natural. Ruffa’s line fall flat everytime. Pilar Pilapil, with her minimal lines every episode, or the lack of it has more effect on the viewer than Ruffa, trying very hard to act.

Good product placement though. The Clear Products goes well with the Eco Moda gig.

But, is it only me, or Nicole comes off as greasy and oily on that black clad Clear commercial?

I miss Tina Monson-Palma on the News.

Channel9 should get Harry Gasser to teach the present crew how to deliver news in English. Cathy santillan should come out of hibernation and show how classy newscasting could be.
