Braulia Santos, student: “I was impressed by Angelica Panganiban’s natural acting in ‘Every Breath U Take.’ But I was disappointed by Piolo Pascual’s portrayal—he didn’t exhibit the stamina and joie de vivre required by his character. He also gives a lackluster performance in ‘Dahil Sa Pag-ibig.’
Irish Katada, televiewer: “Sharon Cuneta had a grand time interviewing Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago on ‘Sharon, Kasama Mo, Kapatid.’ It was one of the rare times that I saw the feisty lawmaker not projecting a combative nature. Sharon elicited interesting details from her guest—the senator’s relationship with her husband and children, how she is as a friend, etc.
“But, what really struck me was Santiago’s sense of humor—she even regaled the audience with her own ‘pickup’ lines! The show benefits from Sharon’s insightful questions and nonintrusive way of asking them.”
Yuki Romeo Sacurom, fashion designer: “More celebrities are touted as possible candidates for next year’s elections, like Annabelle Rama and Alma Moreno.
“I have nothing against them—but please, don’t turn politics into a career option when acting roles are scant. If they’re serious about serving the public, they can always help in other ways. Enough of nonperforming actor-legislators!”
Mikhaila Angeline Manalastas, student: “I hope someone tells Sarah Geronimo to relax and really feel the songs she sings. I’ve been noticing her singing style lately—parang lagi s’yang gigil o galit. In one of her guest appearances on TV, she didn’t do justice to her tribute to Whitney Houston. If she finds it hard to hit high notes like she used to, why doesn’t she settle for a lower key?”
