ALIAS on ABS-CBN...
« on: Oct 24, 2002 at 09:12 AM »
Caught a glimpse of the Alias commercial on ABS-CBN... haven't seen an episode yet but I heard people say that it's a good series so I was thrilled about the prospect of having to look forward to an ABS-CBN show every week (last time I did follow a show on ABS was when they were still showing BAYWATCH...  ;D ;D ;D)... but then my friend said she saw a commercial of it that was dubbed in Filipino?!? Is that true? Is the whole series being dubbed in Filipino???  ??? :o >:(

How sad... wish they'd also show the English version in Studio 23...

Yup, dubbed in Filipino ???, but the dubbing is good.  The dubbing has a higher quality compared sa mga Spanish telenovela.

You COULD start a campaign. A largeish number of Pinoyslayers are thinking of starting a letter-writing camapign or petition for 23 to air the original series' reruns on 23, a la Samurai X. We're just looking for someone to coordinate and write a letter. (Because I can't. Hi, Bacon!)

There could also be a separate approach, but it won't work well if you intend to videotape the series and want it in English.

Back in the 1970s, RPN 9 experimented and dubbed the Telly Savalas Kojak series for a while. The show aired on TV in Tagalog, while you had the option of listening to the original English language track on RADIO.

A better option would be SAP - can we do that locally? Just be sure Marcel doesn't get a hold of the remote...   ::)

Eh, wrong petition, and it IS airing in October (the 28th). What you guys want is the original series aired in English, yes?

Wasn't able to see the said commercial, but does that mean that Studio 23 will also be showing Alias? or was it just included in their "emmy nominations" commercial because they had planned to show the Tagalog version on ABS-CBN?

I just hope it's the former...  :-\ :-\ :-\

They planned to show it on 23. The PTB had a brainfart. The Monday night time slot is no coincidence.

You gotta see this series .. especially the first season when things are not as complicated yet ...  first three-four episodes rocks !

In one of the episodes, Jennifer Garner reminded me of the German actress in Run Lola Run. I do enjoy all the wigs and costumes ... very campy and cool.

But more than that, I liked this series because of the wonderful Victor Garber and the handsome/cool Michael Vartan.

In one interview, she joked she got this part when the producers saw her acting ability in Dude Where's My Car ? .

Little trivia : He is married to Scott Foley .. Noel in Felicity.

I gave up on this series though. The plots getting deeper .. more twists than a daytime soap opera ...  with lots of action. It is a good series, except I can only watch one secret agent in one season. Jack Bauer is more than enough for me.

This is one of the terrible effects of those Spanish soap operas dubbed in Tagalog. They probably thought doing it this way will make this series more popular to the masses. Never mind if they alienate the ABC crowd. They don't watch TV as religiously as those masses. Do you actually think ABC crowd watch Bituin or any other series or musicals before? They are usually out all weeknights hanging out in  bars ... restaurants .. anywhere else but home.. socializing. Or shopping.

Hence the need for a person <not me, for obvious reasons if you know me> to coordinate. Gusto mo ikaw na lang?

Actually if the ratings tank, they might make the decision to pull it on their own.

I think you mean "She is married ..." I was thinking "Gassy Noel's gay?" for a while there. Can't be too careless with Holly and Pagan and the rest of the Fag Hag Faction around. <weg>

See, and I was entertaining fantasies of Foley and The Vartan frolicking in a stream with flowers. Killjoy.

Really ? Yikes ! I must be living in an alternate universe.

A lot has changed in two years I guess. I am planning to go home May 2003 though so I'd be able to catch up then.

Di sa pagyayabang but why should I care? I've watched em all already. I can watch it whenever I want.

The ABS-CBN execs would respond to a tangible outcry from the fans. Online petition's just solidify their belief that only a small minorty would be affected with the change. There goal after all is to appeal the 80% of people living in the Philippines.

eeehhhh... dehins na lang mga pre. Narinig ko lang kasi sa ilang reviews na okay yung series kaya nalungkot lang ako nung malaman ko na ida-dub nila yung Alias. Mas ok pa nga yun e, pakiramdam ko kasing nasosobrahan na ako kakanood ng TV at DVDs kaya hindi ko na lang aabangan yang Alias na yan... susulyap na lang ako ng paunti-unti para makita si Miss Garner.  ;D

am watching it right now.  Feels weird, being tagalized and all, especially as I've never watched a lot of the dubbed telenovelas before or dubbed movies, except maybe Crouching Tiger?  

what in the world were the ABS execs thinking, putting this show on Dos rather than S23?  the cool gadgets, the action sequences, the premise, the target audience, just the wrong show on the wrong channel. darn.
