Jericho Rosales’ masterful portrayal laudedBy Andy Bais
Philippine Daily Inquirer
PATRICIA Flores, student: “One TV series that has caught my attention is TV5’s “Kwentong Kanto.” It is hosted by Carlos Celdran and features the history of the streets and other places in Metro Manila.
“Recently it featured Jones Bridge, and I thought it was presented in an interesting manner. The show is fast-paced, and benefits from well-conceptualized and executed graphics that blend well with the host’s narration.”
Cathrina Margarejo, homemaker: “When we were kids, we always looked forward to watching ‘John and Marsha’ because of one true, entertaining, funny, lovable artist named Dolphy! Thank you for bringing laughter and love into our homes!”
Marla Cruzado, mass communications professor: “‘Kung Ako’y Iiwan Mo’ is about many things—not the least of which is the deterioration of a person’s moral fiber due to loneliness when he works abroad. At the center of this teleserye is faith and how it continues to operate in the lives of those who are there, and the families left behind. Jake Cuenca and Shaina Magdayao turn in commendable performances.
“It was also sheer joy watching Jericho Rosales in ‘Dahil sa Pag-ibig.’ He had a depth of character that was truly striking. His mastery of his role contributed substantively to the teleserye’s moving ending.”
Renz Sevilla, photographer: “Is it just me who finds Charice ‘grandstanding’ on ABS-CBN’s ‘X-Factor Philippines’? I’m not sure what’s going on in her mind. From her wardrobe, her looks, and all the way to conveying her comments, nothing has been in the right place since the show’s first telecast.
“Is she doing this because she thinks she’s bigger than the other three judges, due to her international success? They too have achived a lot here and abroad, but they show mutual respect and never attempt to get the better of each other to prove their superiority.”
