It’s been an eventful viewing week on TV, with unexpected plotting twists, turns and tumbles happening one on top of another.

For instance, on “Poor Señorita,” protagonist ex-billionaire Rita Villon (Regine Velasquez) has been abducted and is about to be run over by a huge pison, as ordered by an avaricious relative.


Even more unusual is the appearance of her look-alike (played by Marvin Cleofas, aka Ate Reg) at corporate headquarters, to mislead everyone and assure them that everything’s A-OK and hunky-dory.

The appearance of Rita’s (gay) doppelganger last week was really surprising, especially because he/she was such a good copy. Kudos to the show’s talent casters for finding such a believable and entertaining poseur!


On “Tubig at Langis,” the fight between Zanjoe Marudo’s two “baby mommies” (Cristine Reyes and Isabelle Daza) has turned really vile, with Isabelle’s offspring finally being born.

For her part, Cristine has been weirdly “accepting” of late, even going shopping for the new arrival!

But we all know that it’s only a matter of time before all heck breaks loose as Isabelle fights tooth and nail for her “rights.”

The turbulent drama series is turning out to be Isabelle’s strongest bid for thespic “cred,” as her “primal” character tries to steal Zanjoe from Cristine—for keeps.

As the series hurtles to its melodramatic conclusion, we’ll soon find out if Isabelle’s all-out thespic bid shall have been successful.

As all of the series’ clangorous, climactic events take place, we ironically recall that, when the production began telecasting months ago, Cristine initially rejected Zanjoe’s love, because she no longer believed that any man could be faithful and true.

Zanjoe protested to high heavens that he would prove her wrong, so she capitulated. But, it now turns out that she was, oh, so right!


Another drama series that’s been on “upheaval” mode this month is “Dolce Amore,” with Enrique Gil’s kuya, Kean Cipriano, abducting Liza Soberano (!) to get “fast money” for their dad’s major operation.

Enrique rescued Liza and their getaway vehicle crashed, landing them in the hospital!

The crash was very believably staged, but it turned out that they had no serious injuries—except for her experiencing amnesia!

As if these shocking developments weren’t enough, the series’ love story appears to have (temporarily) ended, with Enrique even getting to meet and know a new girl played by Sue Ramirez.

And, in another major plot twist, a song he’s composed “somehow” becomes a finalist in a national songwriting tilt, suddenly opening up a radically new career prospect for him!

On “The Story of Us,” unexpected developments have also perked up the storytelling, with Xian Lim meeting a new potential love interest, even as Kim Chiu is involved (not very ecstatically) with a new boyfriend.

Some of these major changes suggest that a number of these shows are being extended, hence the introduction in midstream of new characters, “love interests,” etc.

Abangan ang susunod na convoluted complication!
