Goma’s got game
Richard Gomez lets loose his playful side as host of TV 5’s comedy game show “Quiet Please! Bawal ang Maingay!” (Sundays, 8 p.m.)
It sets itself apart from other game shows with its concept: Contestants must accomplish a series of timed challenges without setting off a giant noise-meter.
Goma made fans swoon in all his teleseryes and movies. This time, Show Town’s original Adonis lets his hair down in the game show. While the contestants try to move as quietly as possible, Goma will be the “Smooth Operator” who calls the shots.
After all these years, Goma remains hot and cool in equal parts.

It is unpredictable and the games are simple and easy. The show makes you realize how much noise household items generate.
