‘Titser’ tackles corruption in school system



Corruption in a small-townschool results in tragedy in tonight’s episode of GMA News TV’s “Titser.”

Funds for the reconstruction of unsafe classrooms are diverted by a crooked principal (Irma Adlawan), putting the students’ lives in danger.

The teachers (led by the character played by Agot Isidro) are left with no other option but to go on strike.

Meanwhile, former students (played by Lovi Poe and Mara Lopez) return from Manila and learn bittersweet lessons. “Titser,” airs  at 7:15.

‘Barter Kings’

The second season of the reality series “Barter Kings” returns to Bio, Tuesdays at 10 p.m.

The show follows the adventures of barter experts Steve and Antonio, showcasing the guys’ strategy and charisma.

Catch this week’s episode, “Big Rig or Bust,” where Antonio gets Steve to help an old buddy.

“No cash, no problem” is the Barter Kings’ motto, as they prove that they can get what they want without spending a single dime.

Bio is available on SkyCable Channel 65, Cablelink Chanel 44, Dream Channel 21 and Destiny Cable Channel 44.

    This is good, those Shameless Lawmaker they will going to realize now what kind of Pilipino they are, and for their children most especially Jingoy Estrada and Bong Revilla, how do you expect the respect from your children and your constituent. Do you still have the conscience to face the nations after your involvement with NAPOLES and you cannot deny it, your pictures with your wife and Napoles are very clear that you are conniving with her scam. And you cannot say or deny that you do not know her, and now you are hiring a lawyer again for you to deny your corruption.

    Nangyayari yan sa tunay na buhay. Noong nasa Pinas pa ako, naging Sales Supervisor ako ng isang malaking sofdrink company at bago ako makapasok sa cafeteria nila (dun din ako graduate ng High School), bukod sa libreng malaking refrigerator na kasama sa deal, may monthly lagay pa sa Principal na hindi alam ng mga teachers.(Kasalanan din ng company dahil my budget sila dito at kasalanan ko rin dahil naglagay ako). Nakausap ko rin ang ibang suppliers at contractors, ganon din ang gawa sa kanila. Nangyayari yan sa maraming eskwelahan sa Pinas. Magtanong-tanong kayo. Maraming Principal ang corrupt tulad ng mga Politician. Di bale kung ang lagay ay tinuturing na donasyon at napupunta sa feeding o para sa kapakanan ng mga estudyante at di napupunta lamang sa iisang bulsa.

    NOW, THEREFORE, I, BENIGNO S. AQUINO III, President of the Philippines, by virtue of the powers vested in me by law, do hereby declare the period from 05 September to 05 October of every year as “National Teachers’ Month.” Ito yung nakasaad sa Proclamation no. 242 s. 2011 na nilagdaan mismo ni PNOY…2 taon mula nang idineklara niya ito at tatlong taon sa kanyang panunungkulan pero hanggang ngayong ni isang kusing ay walang naidagdag na sahod si PNOY para sa mga kawawa at naghihirap na mga guro…

    Ganun nalang kasi ang tema na gawin ninyo channel 7….yong tungkol sa iba’t-ibang uri ng kurapsyon at kabulukan sa systema ng bawat ahensya ng gobyerno para araw-araw maipamukha sa mga kinauukulan ang mga maling gawain nila. kasi po lahat ng magnanakaw kahihiyan lang ang katapat nun lalo na pag nahubaran na sa publiko. Tigilan na ang mga palabas ng kalandian tulad ng husband’s lover ninyo at sa channel 2 na mag-amo….kung gusto ninyo ng mga kalandian sa 11 to 12 midnight ninyo ipalabas yan wag sa primetime kasi ang mga bata gising pa. MTRCB malandi rin kasi kaya ok lang sa primetime.

    GMA 7 is ahead from other channels for airing investigative teleseryes. First with Bayan Ko and now, Titser. Given meaty characters, our actors can truly deliver, away from usual caricature roles. I commend the script and direction, with a well researched material who can go wrong. Keep it up Kapuso

    Best drama series in Philippine television in the last 2 decades: Bayan ko!

    i have yet to see titser but i have high hopes to this new series.

    Sana i-tackle rin ng GMA 7 ang mga pang-aabuso ng mga guro sa kanilang mga estudyante, katulad ng mga terror teacher na pisikal na nananakit kahit sa biktima ng bullying, mga gurong pinipilit ang kanilang mga estudyante na bumili ng mga so-so na kakanin at inumin sa kanilang canteen, mga gurong ayaw payagang lumabas upang mag-CR ang kanilang mga estudyante kung hindi bibili ng kanilang mga paninda, mga gurong ginagawang gatasan ang kanilang mga estudyante sa mga photocopies ng mga aralin, test papers at iba’t-ibang babasahin, at ang pinakamasaklap, oras na ng uwian, hindi pa pwedeng umuwi ang mga estudyante habang hindi nauubos ang paninda ni ma’am. Naranasan ko ang mga ito sa public school.

    Reviewed Titser’s last episode, the director must learn to shoot ‘day for night’ scenes as I was disturbed the time Mara left home (day effect) to attend Lovi’s party.(night scene). They’re supposed to happen at the same night. Another disturbing scene was, what caused the fall of the classroom wall. The intention was to reveal a poorly constructed school building but the script must justify the cause. Lastly, the music scoring, I felt the air of Christmas,(Carols of the Bells like scoring). Post production procedures must carefully been done before releasing the teleserye to the audiences.
