walang kapalit…3/4 hindi nahahati ang langit and 1/4 maging akin ka lamang

nakakatawa naman. wala man lang rason ang pag-uwi ni cynthia. bakit pa siya umuwi. dapat man lang may dahilan, knowing that she’s escaping from murder and she’s risking “her” son from being taken away from her.

that aside, i watched the preview of walang kapalit. i’m not over 30 yet but i like watching old 80s filipino movies. todo na! parang pinaghalong hindi nahahati ang langit (1985) by mike de leon and Maging akin ka lamang (1987) by lino brocka.

all about walang kapalit

(SOURCE: wikipedia)

Walang Kapalit (in English, Irreplaceable) is a Philippine television series of ABS-CBN. It premiered April 23, 2007 on ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida.

A riveting story coupled by an equally riveting cast. These are the ingredients to, “Walang Kapalit”. Boasting an ensemble cast and a story that will keep you on the edge of your toes, Walang Kapalit will surely keep you hooked to the very end.

Walang Kapalit is based on Mike De Leon’s 1985 drama Hindi Nahahati Ang Langit, an adaptation from an earlier komiks version of the same title by Nerissa Cabral.

walang kapalit…a review

i like claudine barretto. i like piolo pascual. i like walang kapalit in general. but the story has so many loopholes and stupid subplots that it’s starting to drag.

i am highly doubtful of the major conflict earlier in the seires. yeah right ariston and agnes are married, and noel and melanie are brother and sister by law, but they’re not blood related. in my opinion that’s a non issue. i think i can speak for 99% of the people in the world.

despite that, melanie and noel’s bickering were funny and delightful. but what’s with claudine’s wig!?! it looks too much like bea’s (pbb2 winner) hair, all too straight and dry. there are other ways to suggest she’s a teenager. piolo pascual’s transformation on the other hand was okay. he was wearing puruntongs and shirts that made him look younger.  and pardon me, claudine is too pregnant to play a character who’s not pregnant.
