i didn’t know until recently that star cinema is still into producing television shows. though star cinema and abs-cbn are sister companies, i find the ones produced under star cinema better than abs-cbn, like pangako sa ‘yo and kay tagal kang hinintay. “kaya pala maganda ang istorya ng ysabella and maging sino ka man book 1.”
hindi ko nasubaybayan ang ysabella. partly because of its timeslot. too early. timeslot now is better. but the few episodes i watched are nice. the story seems to be solid, with the right foreshadowing and motives. and it’s not that dragging. pero inis na inis ako sa pag-amoy ni ysay sa pagkain, yun paglagay ng spice na parang knorr or maggi powdered seasoning. overkill! OA!!!
too bad i’ve been hearing andrew will die. andrew the character is cool and very noble. but i think ryan agoncillo will still be in ysabella. my guess is that albert is his twin. ryan’s acting is getting better. talgang judy ann and ryan complement in each other. judy ann is so sexy now and she looks sophiscated in her two preview magazine covers. it’s possible pala to be masa and sophisticated at the same time. kudos to judy ann for the tremendous improvement she’s done to herself. i agree that’s party ryan’s influence. (si jolina masa pa din. di nag-improve ang kasosyalan level!!!)
derek ramsay’s acting is so so, kinda pilit in drama scenes. mito the character though, kahit medyo nakakainis siya ngayon, i understand his pains and his reasons for pushing ysay away.
alex is funny. aiza is a good cast. the actor that played tiyong perry acts well. but gina pareno is still the best. she’s such a good actress. she might give judy ann a run.
as for valeen, bad acting. and sobrang puti niya that it doesn’t look good. aldred is such a cutesie, but he doesn’t act well too. but he seems to have potential.
hopefully this drama doesn’t drag to abnormal heights and depths, like they did to the ending of maging sino ka man book 1.
one thing’s been bugging me is who is the young boy (jairus) young ysay and young alex (sharlene san pedro) met? is it mito, andrew or albert?
