I am a lost child.

No. I am not one of those children who desperately looks for the nearest Jollibee outlet (as per mom’s instructions) after getting lost in the mall or one who figuratively lost his way to drugs and alcohol.

Instead, I am one who thickens the plot of every pinoy telenovela in existence. There should be at least one of me in a soap opera or the world will start turning in the opposite direction, self-destruct even.

Does Santino in May bukas pa, JR & Dave in  Tayong Dalawa, Ella & Miguel in  Dahil may isang ikaw, Rosalinda in Rosalinda and of course, Narda in Darna ring a bell?

I won’t even mention other afternoon and evening telenovelas with a similar plot in the last ten years because there’s just too many of them.  Aaaah, the list will easily go up to a hunded!  (laugh)

Point is, this storyline is so overused and abused that it already sounds lame. Redundant. Contrived. Gee, anyone who watches these shows would probably come to a conclusion that we are a nation with lots of absent-minded parents. (kidding)

I agree. There is nothing more heartwarming than a parent-child reunion in the end but I mean, c’mon, how many ways can a a parent lose his/her child or vice-versa?

    I know this about Darna because my son loves watching Marian Rivera in her red swimsuit. He is just two years old but who cares? Whatever daddy watches..

    a lost child (or in some cases, a lost parent 🙂 ), is really one of the extremely common plots used in tv & film.. there must be something in it.. hmnnn..

      ano kaya ang maron doon at wala na silang maisip na iba? hehehehe. i really shouldn’t be complaining dahil reflection na rin naman ng ating society ang mga plots sa ating telenovela pero ayoko nang manood minsan kasi paulit-ulit na lang. nakakasawa rin.

      tsk. tsk. can’t help but think about the victims of ondoy. mukhang nawalan ng gana ang lahat na mag-blog about any other topic.

      ondoy took the country and the internet community by storm (pun intended).

    Oh yeah, that’s what i’ve been telling for so long. I think we come across as a nation with just too many lost children (or is it lost parents?) LOL.

    but seriously, the reason our race has never really reached maturity is because of the false ideas being fed by these telenovelas. e we are a telenovela-loving nation pa naman. (although I am one of the exceptions…wala akong pasensiya sa mga telenobela kasi hindi na pinagiisipan yung mga plots eh, especially kapag nagre-rate)

      yep. money driven na mostly ang mga istorya. heaven forbid a telenovela gets high ratings. masasalaula ang story dahil patatagalin nila.
