I'm sure they can come up with good plots soon! The only thing I honestly dislike about some filipino tv series is the length of the whole drama. I find it so long!!

i think i saw this same topic over and over again..lolz
to tell you the truth i was actually surprised because i found out that they actually air filipino dramas in other asian countries just like what koreans did in the philippines.
i was surprised to find that out because i didn't know other people would actually watch it
anyways..in my opinion i think they can..if they ever broaden their choice of audience..they always have to think about the people who's watching it..besides i don't think the directors/writers or whoever makes these dramas have any plans of getting their dramas noticed worldwide..they don't even have enough money to fund all their dramas..let alone the whole country..
so i guess in the near future they can...so long as they pick damn good artists..not the ones who are just popular.

one word i can think of when it comes to philippine series/movies:

Corny!

seriously, they don't get over their animal/alien/whatever sidekicks
and those "laos na" superheroes? yuck!
not to mention the lousy visual effects

i'm beginning to think that philippine shows are only for promoting the actors/actresses.. i think that they really don't care about what we actually like.. or maybe, the writers and directors are not skilled enough

I think that when watching shows from other countries, such as shows found here on CR, you really have to keep an open mind. You have to remember that other cultures have different ways of seeing things, what's funny to us may not be funny to them, and vice versa. To call something crap without first understanding the culture behind is foolish.

In the end all they can do is do their best, and if you don't like it, just don't watch it.

Filipinos are talented people. They can and they did make movies that are as good or sometimes better than foreign movies. It's just that the local industries are so fixated in making gooey, icky, love stories because that is where they will profit. Movies such as Batch 81, Himala, Ganito kami noon Pano kayo ngayon are just some examples of good and high quality films that Filipinos made...

Shows here are so lame because the plot is so predictable. The story always revolves between the rich and the poor and stuff. The only thing that is different is the names of the characters. But generally, it revolves bout the same plot.



hey have you seen encantadia?? that was way different from the usual filipino plot.. it was the best fantaserye here in the philippines.. but then the character of jen mercado and mark herras came.. ruined it...
