primetime crap

this was taken from my previous post in my other blog,
--metamorphmagus--, dated 2006.11.26
the typhoon milenyo has greatly affected a lot of people and destroyed a lot of property...including the electric post in front of our house. because of that electricity, phone lines, and cable tv services are not available.

sadly yes, primetime viewing was very disrupted.

for 3 weeks post milenyo, i cannot watch tv. axn says that "tv is useless without axn". let me correct that. tv is useless without cable tv. you can say that i am so maarte and that there are still local networks. i know but nothing still beats cable tv. :)

honestly, i am not entertained by some of the tv shows shown in the local networks. i am so fed up with the usual shows. let me give you their schedule:
1. Morning: children's tv programs (which is ok) and re-runs of the koreanovelas
2. Noon: variety shows
3. Afternoon: anime, korean and/or mexican telenovelas
4. Evening: news programs peppered with showbiz news and telenovelas (again).
5. Late night: shows in which i have no idea what they are because the telenovelas take so much time that i get too sick and tired of waiting for other more sensible shows to come up.

there you go. maybe i gave enough reasons why i whine about not having cable tv. i have nothing against telenovelas but i can see that there is too much of it. in general, local tv stations have a bad case of unbalanced programming. literally, telenovelas rule the primetime slots of tv programming. for the networks, they should make their concepts new. they never fail to give us soap operas with flying merpeople and a missing heir to the entire gazillion-bagillion worth of riches of the chuvanesse family. oh come on! give me a break. you guys can do better than that!

tv viewing was so generic in the first week of my sem break. but thank god for the immediate action of sky cable upon our complaint! now i enjoy hogging the tv and watching my favorite shows in jack tv, axn, star world, etc, lifestyle network, disney channel, mtv, vh1, crime suspense, hbo, cinemax, star movies, and ftv. whoops! tv junkie on the loose here. duh! as if i can be a tv junkie when the second semester starts. harhar. :)

SCENE 1 from the hit mexican telenovela "purita que amor" (tagalized version)
girl: oh jose mariano david! ano na ang mangyayari sa ating dalawa?
boy : oh maria ana margarita, kahit ako'y aalis papunta sa rancho ng aking angkan sa argentina, ikaw pa rin ang mahal ko.
girl: ngunit jose mariano david, ipapakasal ako ni papa sa lalaking iyon! ayoko sa kanya.
boy: hindi maria ana margarita, magpapakasal na tayo ngayon. as in. now na!
girl: naku jose mariano david, hindi mo alam kung gaano mo ako pinasaya! as in super happy talaga ako.
boy: oh maria ana margarita mahal na mahal kita kaya gagawin ko iyon...muah
girl: (speechless) *tears of joy*
(kissing scene follows)

SCENE 2 from the filipino telenovela "ang iibigin ko ay walang iba kung hindi ikaw pa rin"
kontrabida: siguradong sa impyerno na ang bagsak ng nag-iisang anak na ni don manolo at para mapasaakin na din ang kanyang super hot na kasintahan. bwahahahaha!
sidekick: tama ka diyan madam dahil sinigurado kong nasa loob siya ng kotse niyang ferrari bago ko tinodo ang timer na bomba. siguradong naging mala-impyerno ang pagkatsugi niya sa mundong ito.
kontrabida: magaling ernesto. maaari mo nang kunin ang bonus mo doon sa bag sa ilalim ng supa. wag kang magpapahalata kay inday dahil baka mahuli ka niya at magsumbong siya kay don manolo. masisira ang mga ka-chervahan ng plano ko.
(lingid sa kaalaman ng dalawa, nakikinig pala ang 5 anyos na anak ni inday at dali-dali itong nagpunta sa ina at sinabi ang lahat na narinig na agad namang chinika ni inday kay don manolo.)

SCENE 3 from the telefantasya "gaeyamonda"
bida: ibagsak ang kaharian ng mga masasamang baklor!
masa: ibagsaaaaaaaaaaak!!!!
bida: sa loob ng 23 siglo ang mga ninuno natin ay nilupig nila at ginawang alipin. kaya ngayon na ang tamang panahon na sinasabi ng banal na salamangkero at ermitanyo ng versalifsig upang tayo naman ay makapamuhay sa ating lupain ng bonadeo!
masa: mabuhay si homasulakbo! mabuhay!
bida: mamayang kabilugan ng pang-apat na buwan ng gaeyamonda tayo sasalakay sa mga kalaban.(dumating ang mga kalabang baklor!)
baklor leader 1: lipulin silang lahat! bwahahaha!
(may chaos na parang ni-raid ng mga parak ang isang warehouse na may mga nagpa-pot session)
bida: hindi kami papatalo sa iyo!!!!!!!!! para sa bonadeo, sugooooooood!!!!
(fight sequence na matatapos sa pagpapakita ng casualties sa lupain ng bonadeo)

o di ba? showbiz!
