Lorenzo's Time

Lorenzo's Time is another unique and uplifting story brought by ABS-CBN starring Zaijan Jaranilla and Carmina Villaroel. The story will open up a rare genetic condition called "Progeria". It is an extremely rare genetic condition wherein symptoms resembling aspects of aging are manifested at an early age.
Zaijan will portray the role of Lorenzo "Enzo", the child who will suffer from such rare condition. In order to look for a cure, Enzo had to undergo cryonics procedure in which his body will be preserved and will be revived until the time that they find the cure for his genetic disease. However, it took him 30 years before waking up from his poor condition. When he woke up, the people around him have aged but he himself have kept the same physical features.
It somehow reminds me of Brad Pitt's "The Curious Case of Benjamin Burton" but I think it has a very interesting approach for Filipino viewers.
How will Enzo (Zaijan Jaranilla) react when he wakes up from cryonics and finds out that the people around him have aged but he himself have kept the same physical features? How will he go with the flow of the new generation that is new to him and how will he cope when he finds out that he has been asleep for three decades?
This is indeed another masterpiece of ABS-CBN that everybody should look forward to. The series is set to air on ABS-CBN in July 2, 2012 replacing Dahil Sa Pag-Ibig.
Other cast memb ers include Amy Austria, Gina PereƱo, Alfred Vargas, Belinda Mariano, James Blanco, Joel Torre and Rommel Padilla. With Special participation of John Estrada, Dimples Romana, and Kaye Abad

TMSB : Broken Vow Final Review

Broken Vow had its final episode last Friday. Broken Vow is an afternoon drama soap top billed by Bianca King, Luis Alandy, Gabby Aigelman and Rochelle Pangilinan. The Story was written by Dode Cruz and directed by Gil Tejada. This series follows the story of Melissa (King), Felix (Alandy), Roberto (Eigenmann) and Rebecca (Pangilinan), the four protagonists whose lives and loves entangled by deception, obsession, broken love and broken promises.
Originality - The story has a unique approach. - (9)
Casting - I think the show came up with an impressive set of actors here. They took a risk and I believe that the actors portrayed their role well. We've seen Gabby's acting skill in "Munting Heredera" and Rochelle showed us that she's more than just a dancer after her break in "Amaya". This is also Bianca King's second lead role after "Sinner or Saint" - (9)
Story - The story was written by the critically acclaimed Dode Cruz. He's the writer behind several successful drama series including "MariMar", "Legacy", "Impostora" and "Kokak". I think he did another tremendous job for this one - (9)
Acting - The moment that these actors managed to switch their roles from being a protagonist to an antagonistic role is highly commendable. I think the show gave them a chance to showcase their versatility. Comparing Bianca King from her first drama series, I think there is some sort of improvement on her part. - (8)
Impact - Originally slated to air for just one season (13 weeks), the series awarded several extensions (6 weeks extensions) after it scores massive success in television ratings, both in Urban Luzon, Mega Manila and National Urban Philippines, outshining its competition in the afternoon slot.According to Nielsen Television Audience Measurement (Nielsen TAM), Broken Vow was ahead of its competitors by an average of 5.5% points since it launched on February 6 (period ending March 16). It reaped an average nationwide household rating of 14.1% points, while its competing program only got 8.6% points. - (10)

Average : 9

Online Tutorial

Teaching has always been a passion to me and this is probably the reason why I took Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education. Even though I failed to finish my college and began to focus more on my work, I still have the same passion inside me and in fact, prior to this current job that I have, I was working as a part time private tutor.
It's always a pleasure for me to do such thing because I love sharing my knowledge to others. I've been working as part time tutor since I was in fourth year high school. I used to help my cousins, nieces and nephews in making their home works and assignments. I used to teach them almost all their academic subjects especially before their exam.
It was quite stressing especially when it comes to a point that they failed to understand even a single thing from your lesson and you have to explain it much deeper for them to understand but despite of that, it is indeed a rewarding experience when you see their progress.
Interestingly, children do not need a personal tutor to drop by on their place for their tutorial sessions. All they need is a stable Internet connection and be involved in the so called "online private tutoring". The drill is almost the same but the main advantage of these online tutorial programs is that they are obviously convenient, less time consuming and very much affordable.
If you want to know more on how this private tutoring works, please don't hesitate to visit https://tutorhub.com/ for more information.

The Wonders of Spirulina

Are you looking for some effective diet plan? Are you tired of changing from one diet plan to another just because they didn't work for you? Keep in mind guys that the key towards a successful diet is self discipline. A diet will be useless if you can't even control yourself from being tempted to some unhealthy dishes. You have to establish a balanced diet and regular exercise to keep your body in shape. You have to accept the fact that diet takes time before you can see the actual result though you can try some alternatives to expedite the process.
The use of nutritional and dietary supplement is an effective way towards a faster diet. However, you have to be aware that taking pills is quite risky especially if you do not have enough knowledge with the product that you are dealing with. It is advisable for you to get some recommendations from friends or relatives or better yet search the web and look for some reliable reviews to help you out.
Among all the leading Dietary supplements today, Spirulina is probably one of the most amazing dietary aids you can try on. So what is in spirulina that makes someone diet more effective? Spirulina is indeed a wonderful dietary supplement with amazing dietary capabilities that no other supplement can offer.
Suprisingly, Spirulina came from a microscopic type of blue-green algae that grows naturally in fresh water lakes which means the supplement itself came from a natural source which is obviously safer than those man-made formulated pills. In addition to that, Spirulina contains other nutrients and vitamins that are essential to our body. Several products today make use of Spirulina as their main active ingredient including the well known BioLumina. You can check more about the product here http://www.newphoenixrising.com and see what else the product has to offer for you.

The Worst Fantaseryes Ever Made in Philippine TV

Fantaserye has become one of the most beloved genres in Philippine television. As what the term suggests, Fantaserye is a soap opera or telenovela combined with fantasy, magic and myth. The first ever Fantaserye in Philippine TV was Marina topbilled by Ms Claudine Barretto. Since then, Fantaserye has become the highlight and the most awaited part of the primetime blocks of both GMA and ABS CBN.
Fantaseryes were embraced by the viewers and has become a part of Philippine pop culture. However, some of these so-called Fantasy series failed to impress the viewers due to the following reasons.
Storyline. Seeing the same kind of stories about fairies and providing some predictable twist or endings will keep the viewers away from watching such program.
Special Effects. Fantaseryes are known for their special effects and people are expecting to see some cool and realistic graphics.
Originality. Some shows were almost copied from other foreign shows which is quite frustrating because I know that Filipinos are more creative than that so why not produce a show that showcase their original craft right?
Anyway, Listed below are some of the worst Fantaseryes ever made in Philippine TV.
Sailor Moon Oh, I mean Super Twins is a story about twin girls named Sha-sha and Tin-Tin who transform into teenage superheroines Super S and Super T, respectively, and daughters of Manuel Paredes and Ester Paredes. They transform by kissing their special rings. Using their powers, they commit themselves into saving people's lives. As far as I know, this is Marian's first primetime show but that is not good enough to give this show a credit. It was obviously based on a Japanese Anime ~ Sailormoon. One good evidence is the way how the twins transform into superheroines. Good thing the show came up with a notable chant which was spoofed by several tv shows including "Bubble Gang".

Kokey is indeed a successful Fantaserye , however, the sequel didn't turned out so well. Kokey @ Ako will follow the alien Kokey and the human reporter Jackie as they work to reunite with their families while the aliens from Planet Kukurikabu plot to exterminate mankind. Despite of the amazing comedic duo of Toni Gonzaga and Vhong Navarro, it seems that the show failed to meet the expectation of the viewers. You can't blame the audience for comparing the sequel from the original story. In addition to that, Kokey @ Ako has nothing much interesting stories to offer compare to first one.

Kungfu Kids. It tells the story of seven kids of different personalities united by a prophecy. The story reminds me of the 1995 movie ~ Batang X. As far as the rating is concern, the show earned respectable ratings though I don't think the show will be remembered for the next five years. Kids might compare it to Super Inggo which shares the same kind of costumes and props.

Iglot. Iglot is topbilled by Milkcah Wynne Nacion and Claudine Barretto. It tells the journey of Luningning and his friend Iglot which is an Unggiko. Actually the story of Iglot was surprisingly not that bad however the show ended unexpectedly as if the network made it in rush. The show ended with an unnecessary ending. I think it's all about the ratings. The show might not be good enough to compete with 100 Days in Heaven that time.

Majika. Majika was the last Fantaserye of Angel Locsin under GMA 7. Majika tells the story of Sabina, a seemingly ordinary girl who lived in the world of mortals but is unknowingly the one destined to become Saladin’s most powerful female Salamangka. What makes it worst? Well, I think the show was quite overdone with special effects and props. The non-sense spells chants, the crappy story line are good enough reasons to consider Majika as one of the worst Fantaserye ever made in Philippine TV.

Rounin . It's an almost forgotten show of ABS-CBN. Even though it is considered as the first Filipino series shot using high-definition video technology, the series is a big failure when it comes to ratings. Rounin is the story of an elite group of warriors who live in a place called Lumeria. They are tasked to protect the city and its inhabitants against the threats of Helion, the City of Death. I think the series was derived from some MMORPG games. Whew... I can't remember any characters from this show. Yikes!

From Cinderalla to Beauty and the Beast, to Little Red Riding Hood, to Snow White. Name it! The Last Prince got them all for you. Unfortunately, that is not a good thing! Who would have like seeing your favorite Fairytales being messed up? The props, the special effects and the continuity of the story are not appealing enough for me and I know most of you who have watched this show felt the same way. Should we blame the actors as well for not portraying their roles so well?

Did I mentioned something about Acting? I don't think Aljur has the guts! Machete is indeed a failure! Okay, maybe viewers are expecting too much from the show. Since this is a remake, you can't blame the viewers from comparing the show to the previous films starring Cesar Montano in 1990 and Gardo Versosa in 1993. Anyway, at least , "Machete Diet" has become a popular term that time.

Popular Celebrity Engagement Rings

When a celebrity wears a diamond ring, it will instantly become one of media's center of attraction, spreading rumors that she's now engage or married to someone or something like that. Then afterwards, people will become more interested with that ring and how much does it cost. Well , we all know that once, we are referring to celebrities, it is usually very expensive and sometimes way beyond our expectation.
Remember that radiant pink diamond ring that Ben Affleck gave to her ex wife Jennifer Lopez? They said that the ring was worth $1.2 million. However, since they're relationship didn't last for long, I still find it impressive for J.Lo to return the ring after they broke off the engagement. His ex husband Mark Anthony offered him a bluish diamond ring that is worth over $4 million.
Mariah Carey also received a worthy ring from her fiance Nick Canon. It looks pretty cool and one of a kind for me. They said that the ring is worth $2.5 million.
Could you imagine how much we can buy with this 7 money figures. If i'm as rich as this guys, then I don't mind offering such expensive yet precious item for my love one.
If I will be given a chance then , i would definitely offer one of those pear cut diamonds 0,40 carat diamonds or something similar to what Enrique Iglesias offered to her fiance Anna Kournikova which is said to be $2.5 million worth.
Well , actually, it doesn't have to be that expensive. You can offer an engagement ring with good enough worth for your sweet heart. When it comes to the value of your jewelry, i think it would be a bit risky, if you buy the item alone. Seek some expert advices or better yet make your own research on what and where to buy those engagement rings. You might want to consider sydney diamonds or put them on top of your list since they are well known for providing fine class and high quality diamonds that no other local and typical companies have to offer.
Those engagement rings houston might meet the high standards too and is highly recommendable for thjose who are looking for a perfect and ideal proposal or engagement gift for their fiances.
Other notable celebrity engagement rings include Jennifer Aniston's ring designed by his ex husband Brad Pitt, same thing with Angelina Jolie's ring. Beyonce's emerald cut diamond ring which is worth over $5 million has become a sensation too. Princess Diana's deep blue diamond ring which was recently inherited by Kate Middleton is truly a phenomenon.

Introducing TV Marathon Score Board

Introducing TV Marathon Score Board. Starting today, I will be doing series of TV and movie reviews which are all base on my personal opinion and point of views. The reviews will be done subjectively so if you have any opinion, suggestions or event violent reactions (LOL), feel free to raise it here by simply leaving your comments. I would highly appreciate if you would follow my blog to receive all my latest updates and reviews. TV Marathon will officially be one of my active main blogs and I will try to do my best to keep this blog updated. As for the TV and movie reviews, Listed below are the following criteria that i came up with. This will be our official guidelines to rank a certain Tv show or movie appropriately. I know that the ranking is subjectively done but I will still have some proper basis to guide me with.
Originality - We're tired of those regular drama routine right? Most television shows today are very predictable and we're tired of those common tv scenarios. Originality is what exactly we're looking for in a movie or tv programs.
Casting - If an actor is quite in demand and has a huge fan base, that would definitely be an advantage but if you keep seeing him typecasting the same roles or you'll see them in one show to another, then that will surely bore you out. Seeing new face and new talents will make the viewers more interested. Casting will judge a program based on how intelligently the casting was made. Is the actor or actress appropriate for the role?
Story - A story serves as the brain of any shows. It's the entire foundation. No matter how good the actors are, if they came up with a crappy plot, it will be useless. Story will judge the program base on it's originality , script, the continuity of the plot and the show's entire concept. Did the show moved you at some point, touching your heart and became notable for the audience?
Acting - A good story will be useless as well if the actor failed to deliver his or her role properly. The actors should extent their acting skills to the point that audience will feel all the burst of emotions. Acting will judge the way the actors portray their roles and how well they are in delivering their scripts.
Impact - This is all about the ratings. We will be using AGB Nielsen and Kantar as our reference.

The score will range from 1-10 where in 10 is the highest. We will score the show per category will sum them up to get the average score. The scoring will take place after the last episode of the certain program.
