I find it kinda of yucky!
btw, though their channel 8 are pretty lousy, i think CNA and arts central are really good.
worst was that they risen the bus fares to "face rising costs". haha, rising costs?Originally Posted by Paul_Yeo

Can someone tell me why local Chinese serial programs here like to have scenes of crying, shouting, anger, plots of revenge? I dun watch them but 10 years ago it was like dat. When I turned on recently, it was still like dat!
Is it cos these are the preferred ways they can display their actors'/actresses' skills? Other than these, it would be the typical hosptial scenes where someone is critically ill, more crying at bedside, etc.
Coz they're for the lowest common denominator, and that's where the $ comes in from advertising. Sadly, it's still the bottom line that counts.Originally Posted by David
This gives me the impression MCS is out purely to make money. As long as the minimal dollar is met, that's it.
To think they boast about "high viewership". High viewership yes... Because viewers have no other choice or that they're really good.
I haven't watched any shows on TV for years except for the news sometimes. I prefer my drama series dvds .
the shows nowdays.. especially on channel 8
no sense of orginality...
you can predict what`s going to happen next..
and oh yes.. channel 5.. boring..
i rather watch dvds~
plus the comedian searching show. channel 8 or U? darn lame.Originally Posted by redstone

What about some local variety shows, that, not just copies the concept/idea of certain segments. They virtually mimic THE ENTIRE show and just give it another show title. All you can expect is a pathetic local version.
Well.. Many of our shows on local TVs are copied ideas.. Singapore Idol and all the other IDOLIZING shows.. the chinese show on creativity are all copied.. and what`s more.. worse than the original.. tsk tsk..
storylines for serial shows has no kick.. you can almost guess what is going to happen.. the typical kind of beginning that will lead to a typical type of ending.. woah~ how "interesting"?
singapore idol.. what a letdown.. i wonder if they are voting for the faces or if they are casting votes because the voice is good and they look reasonable enough to represent singapore..
