Okay, I got the idea because I found a topic here that's about http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-183413/Annoying-Habits-in-Korean-Drama.html
Therefore, I thought why not make a topic similar to it but for Filipino dramas.

In Filipino dramas:
- the love rivals are always either related or best friends. Usually, it's related. (brothers or sisters!)
- There's always revenge and betrayal involved.
- SO MUCH MISUNDERSTANDINGS! As Filipinos say, "Maraming namamatay sa masamang akala." (Rough translation: Curiosity killed the cat.)
- There's always a rich/poor status between the two leads.

Well, go ahead and tell me the little things that annoy you about Filipino dramas.

Come on! There's lots of Pinoys in crunchyroll, I know that even a few will contribute to this list!

no originality in storyline... actor/actress can't act... fight scenes are always cheap... predictable ending... it always seems like they're stuck a decade behind evey other country; i.e. the way they dress and how the movie looks like when you watch it(i dunno if its still like that)

the stories r very cliche.

and predictable sometimes.

they copy the plot and title. ex: GAGAMBOY = SPiderman

the good ppl always win.

the special effects r kinda gay.

actually its not a little thing hehehe

1. The main character usually are naive or stupid, easily defeated by the villain
2. The villain are so bad, in most filipino dramas there will be killing
3. Too much character, some characters are not useful
4. Draggy
5. Overacting actress and actors

anyway don't hate me if i wrote those thing, im filipino but i really dont like watching filipino dramas, that's why i fall inlove watching korean, japanese & taiwanese drammas
