No, i just love mediacorp's idol show
So far I havent not watched a single one.. I rather watch my computer's screen
1) Love triangle
2) Someone heart attack
3) Someone hit by car
4) Mr A pushing Miss B out of the car's way and is hit instead, then relationship developes
5) Unfilial children
6) Parents disown children
7) A plotting revenge against B for something
8) Funeral scene
9) Dying person saying last wishes to loved ones
10) Man always wooing lady, woo and woo and finally succeeds or fails
Gentlemanly man, the cranky elderly parent, the sweet xmm lady, the bitterly rejected but never-says-die attitude guy, etc etc
sick of all idol shows no matter which country they come from.
it is ultra low budget production for the tv stations. no need to pay the contestants for anything, save on salaries for actors/actresses.
also high revenue earner in a earning share scheme tie-up with telcos to urge people to sms votes. there is no proper acting, no drama, no storyline just endless boring drudgery of poorly filmed scenes.
it takes up lots of time slots in tv programming so that the cheapskate tv stations need not spend any money buying expensive and good shows to broadcast.

For hospital scene, someone got hurt, a heart attack or tried to commit suicide, gets rushed to hospital, then one by one, his or her loved ones come rushing to the hospital, wait anxiously outside the operating theatre that has doors looking like cardboards, then a youngish looking surgeon comes out, shakes his head, tells them to be prepared for the worse, then a lot of crying, next scene by the hospital bed, more crying, etc etc. Oh man....
Although soap operas have some things in common, I find the local ones are really so... ____ . I can't even find a proper (or rather improper) word to describe it! Taiwan, HK ones are equally bad, if not worse.
Ok, just my opinions, dun wanna anger those who live by local soap ops.
i don't get sick of those shows because i don't watch them. as a matter of fact, i dont watch tv anymore!!
