Latest ‘teleserye’ updates

/ 09:43 PM October 25, 2013


Alas and alack, the two actors we recently cited for doing the best work on the new “Genesis” sci-fi drama series (Robert Arevalo and Laurice Guillen) are no longer “extant” on the show, their characters having perished in the aftermath of  an asteroid crash. —That was quick! What will the series do now to keep its thespic level up?

Leads Dingdong Dantes and Rhian Ramos are only passing muster, so we hope that Lorna Tolentino and Jackielou Blanco will step into the breach and turn in crackerjack portrayals.


The last time we watched “Genesis,” Dingdong and Rhian had finally been reunited after many years, so we expect that her present partner, TJ Trinidad, won’t like that one bit, and the melodramatic fur will fly in subsequent telecasts.


Melodramatic upheavals

Fine, but now that (President) Lorna has announced that the world is expected to end real soon, don’t all these melodramatic upheavals feel, uh, out of place?

Who cares who ends up with whom, if everybody will soon be a goner? Just asking.

But, let’s face it, the world won’t end just yet, despite Lorna’s presumably informed prediction, so the teleserye’s life goes on: Dingdong has been instructed by Lorna to locate some VIPs, so that will take up most of his time in the coming days—or should!

Will that give TJ more room to maneuver in relation to Rhian, and do his dastardly worst? Abangan.

All told, however, now that the human drama has taken over, “Genesis” feels less exciting than it did on its opening week, when all “asteroidal” hell was breaking loose. So, we trust that the series has more sci-fi tricks up its ample sleeve, and will unleash them—soonest!


Eyesight regained

On “Kahit Nasaan Ka Man,” Julie Anne San Jose’s character has regained her eyesight, but her travails definitely aren’t over, because her grandfather’s girlfriend hates her like heck, and is hell-bent on making her know it—especially now that she believes Julie Anne caused her recent miscarriage.

As for Julie Anne’s leading man, Kristoffer Martin, he’s faring only passably in his first stellar outing on TV, so he needs to get his thespic act together pronto, or else some people will think that his is a case of “too much, too soon.”

What seems to be the problem? The young actor has to come up with a more natural and felt portrayal, and forget about porma and making self-conscious lip and mouth movements in a misguided effort to come across as “thoughtful” and “cute.”

For her part, Julie Anne is sometimes too sluggish, and needs to be more emotionally expressive. We’re not just talking about doing crying scenes well—there are many other emotions that performers need to express to affirm the range and depth of their feelings!
