PILOT EPISODE TV REVIEW: GMA Network’s “Victor Magtanggol” narrates the events beyond ‘Ragnarok’

Victor Magtanggol briefly explains the events during and before ‘Ragnarok,’ right within the first few minutes of its pilot episode. In Norse mythology, Ragnarok literally means ‘twilight of the gods,’ a series of catastrophic events where all of Asgard is decimated. To followers of the myth, the uncanny similarity screams out. But perhaps, the extremely evident resemblance will strike harder to fans of its more contemporary iteration–Marvel’s Thor.

TV REVIEW: “New Girl” Wraps Up Everything with All the Sweetness It Can Deliver

The seventh and final season of ‘New Girl’ is unexpected—unexpected, not just in the sense that the sixth season was meant to be the last, and not seventh, but largely because this new season starts with extremely adorable charm, mindblowing even, that it makes ‘mindblowing’ an unsuitable word for a situational comedy.

TV REVIEW: A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 2 is Menacingly Sardonic and Funny

The new season of Netflix’s ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ is menacingly sardonic and funny, its choreographic weirdness sprinkled with just the right amount of petulance and darkness. It’s hard to figure out which season is better, really, for while the first season curiously explored Lemony Snicket’s absorbing mythology of the Baudelaires and their distant uncle, Count Olaf, and came up with an ingenious mix of humor and terror, the second season does not fall short either, of fresh and mind-blowing antics, disguises, and peculiarities, …

Not only they aren’t functional assistants (they are shown taking selfies during the operation), …

REVIEW: ABS-CBN, GMA Network battle [again] over ‘Love’ as a theme in their Christmas Station IDs

It’s the Season of Christmas Station IDs. Two of the country’s leading TV Networks—Kapamilya (ABS-CBN) and Kapuso (GMA Network) have already aired their respective yearly Christmas sounder or stinger. Kapamilya’s ‘Just Love Ngayong Pasko’ is shorter, sweeter and sounder as opposed to Kapuso’s ‘Buong Pusong MaGMAhalan’ that is clearly copied, staged and failed in its execution. Writing this down is a difficult since I do PR work, and I sometimes had to resort to deflecting or sugar-coating) in order to be kinder and not brutal …
