is that the show for kids ages ago? where the two kids get to travel back in time?

i love that show!

i always look forward watching that along with sineskwela and hiraya manawari!


Yep
I've loved it since I was a kid and still does...
Wow I love those other two shows as well

Difference is, "Bayani" doesn't show much blood when a person is killed



hehe, well, after all it's a kid show so i guess they want to make it rated GP,

yeah, me too! my morning is not complete if i missed those shows! hahaha!

and i would be happier i think if shows like that are being remaked rather than these ....


PS
sorry for going off topic, i can't talk about zorro since i never saw it...actually, i had a glance of it and all i can say is that i think they re used the wig he used in his previous drama, Sugo... ne?


ROFL hahahahah!
Now that I think about it, RG looks like his other character in Sugo again
I sorta watch Zorro everynight...
And todays episode, his biological mother is killed....
Mmmmm...
Still, I'd rather play MMORPG... But who knows, if there'll be an interesting scene, I might watch and stop playing for a moment

I've seen a lot of posts on the forum of iGMA (official site of GMA)
and a lot of them are saying that GMA has already bought the rights to REMAKE
ZORRO - A heroic icon created by Johnston McCulley

So what do you think?

Honestly, just hearing this news makes me want to PUKE real BAD. (Sorry RG fans)
I mean, c'mon! As I've said before (in another thread) there are a LOT of creative writers and directors here in the Philippines....!!! This "trend" nowadays in Phil. TV is an act of DEGRADING these creative and talented writers... WTF???

What're they gonna remake next? NARUTO?? BLEACH???


Maybe after zorro, richard " overrated" gutierrez will do the remake series of james bond 007 title "Mr. Overrated"

Then after that, richard will do series of remakes like batman, Twilight, Wolverine, captain america and etc...

Richard is the king of remakes and fantasy series....he will not win at least a best supporting actor award if will continue doing some joke fantasy remakes...!!!

im too selective when it comes to filipino series im only watching two shows theyre both from abs cbn entitled TAYONG DALAWA(interesting actors are in it)and MAY BUKAS PA(i really like santino).These kind of series are worthy to watch as you could see the growth even with the younger casts like kim and gerald,the child playing the role of santino and it has the original storyline.Remakes are okay but they should put a depth on the story and i really hope that richard would undergo acting workshop first hes always using his brow or forehead when expressing emotions so most of the time his acting is not effective.

Okay lang siguro kung adaptations ng pinoy movies, komiks, o novels....pero kung katulad ng zorro na medyo may kultura ng mexico mahirap i-adapt yun..... asan ka nakakita na nag-eespadahan sa Pilipinas with matching kabayo eh paano nila i-aadapt sa Pinas na setting si Richard nakasakay sa kalabaw may dalang itak...


i like this part..

"si Richard nakasakay sa kalabaw may dalang itak..."

pede na rin.. hahaha >:)

Yes, I used to watch Bayani and Hiraya Manawari when I was younger, they were cool but different and like comparing apples and oranges when it comes to this show.

I dunno tho who put it in your head to say that I should watch so and so, I know what I want thank you though for the reminder to watch a show that's probably not on air already since it was produced ten years ago?

I don't need to watch something about Filipino Heroes, I read history which happens to be my favorite subject, that's why I really like this show, they try to show the way of life of the common Indios (Filipinos born in the native land), which to my recollection was only touched upon by other shows in passing.

I also like the fact that there is a character who's a Chinese immigrant, because most of the time they are ignored in historical/period dramas, but in fact will later prove to be influential to the unique social bubble of the Filipinos.

This thread got on the wrong footing, yes GMA does have a tendency to remake and base their dramas from popular comic books and myths.

But, I do recommend this show to every Filipinos, you can ignore RG's atrocious acting and your hatred and immature participation in network wars and see for yourself the effort of the production team and the stellar supporting cast.

I dislike the fact that this show is a Zorro remake, but there are similarities between Mexico and Philippines if you just brush up on your history, since they were two of the major trading destinations during the heydays of Spanish colonization. They too suffered from the brutal rule of the Spaniards and the Friars.

I am given hope that Filipinos will start to embrace period dramas and rediscover our rich history and provide fresh and original platform for dramas.

Their costumes, location, faithfulness to Spanish era routine life is breathtaking, and you could see that they really spent a lot for all the show's shebang. It is not yet perfect, but hopefully we're getting there, not merely Kapamilyas or Kapusos, but Filipinos.

Yes! lol, you noticed that too? It seems like it, but knowing his mom, she'll probably have another major fit.
Anyway, I can't stop raving about this show, thank God it's far from Princess Sarah, EEWness lol.

Yes the time setting is when we are still under the Spaniards
Haven't you noticed? They lack something?
Showing how indios live that time still doesn't show some "realism"

And a show needs a little comedy
But I don't think Chinese act that way during those times





I too hopes and wants to see a series where we can show our rich history and culture...
But not in a exaggerated way... Like the women's wardrobes in Zorro

I'm still watching that everynight hoping to see something new...
Because the show somehow shows Philippines past

if you take RG out of the equation, you have a great series

the setting, the story, the costumes, and the supporting cast have been excellent so far.

I hope they can venture into original period pieces some day that doesn't necessarily involve a foreign franchise.

If they lack 'something' as you say it, I think it all boils down to personal preference. I for one think that they did a pretty good job and paid close attention to minute details, so I don't know what that certain 'something' you're looking for.

Comedy? Needs a little comedy? Do you even watch the show and missed some funny characters?

Lol, of course it will be about the past, do you want a Zorro set in the year 3000?
They are not exaggerated, the costumes you are nitpicking about are probably faithful to the colonial era. The German Fedor Jagor, a historian who traveled the colonial Philippines did say that the Indio seems to imitate everything from Spain (I'm guessing including the fashion of Europe at that time).

How do you think the Chinese acted during the Spanish colonization of the Philippines?
They were called as Sangleys by the Spaniards, they were into trade, and were attracted to Philippines during the Galleon trade era.

Yes it wasn't bad as many people here put it, in fact most of the Philippine dramas are crap and I for one will be the first to say this,however I see promise in this series and I hope they could maintain this kind of set-up until the end of the show.
