So, is New Moon going to be called... Bagong Buwan?
So granting that they'll kill the character, who's betting this will actually make Kevin more involved with Julia and Lizzie after the revelation that he's her biological father? Haha! Very soap opera-ish, but possible.
Oh, and Merry Christmas to all! Hope you're enjoying the holidays as much as I am.

My fascination for Hana Yori Dango started when I read the fanfic The Boy Who Loved Lily. It was a take on what the marauders were like when they were still students at Hogwarts and how James and Lily fell in love. Pretty fluffy, but its spot on interpretation led me to be curious about the F4.

- One thing that impressed me most when I watched the earlier seasons of Survivor (Australian Outback & Africa) was their ability to re-create the exact set of the Tribal Council during the finale. Last night fell short of my expectations. Granted that the network forked this much in staging the franchise, they should've opted for an outdoor setting.
- Whoa! Cris sure cleaned up pretty well after being voted off the island, eh? I almost didn't recognize him during the jury portion.
- Zita is to SP what Yayo was to PBBCE2 last year. I have full and utmost respect for the moms out there (mine included) but it ticks me off when the "mommy card" is used in reality competitions to draw up sympathy. Is it really a Pinoy thing na isumbat ang utang na loob? Tsk! Tsk!

Meet your Korean Dao Ming Si Goo Joon Pyo and Shan Cai Geum Jan Di. He looks cute hawt! The series premieres on January 5 in Korea and more likely will hit Philippine TV around six months later.
Oh, can I just say that Fully Booked-Ayala is my new Disneyland? Gaaahhhh, I can stay there for the whole day and never get bored. I love their extensive selection of books which includes titles I've never seen in NB before.

Two episode so far and I'm still not feeling any love for Deanna Russo's Sarah on Knight Rider. Now that they've decided to get rid of her father on the series for its remaining episodes, I'm secretly wishing her character would follow suit. Justin Bruening deserves someone totally hot and kick-ass! Not some chick with a penchant for bra-less, strapless attires.
Dirty, Sexy Money is cancelled?!? My sister is crushed.
Ginny Weasley's kick-ass quidditch attire. Ahhh, I love it! Too bad we have to wait for 8 more months.
I'm off to watching The House Bunny later. Nothing like some good, old chick flick for some mindless TV viewing.

No, that is not Katrina Halili.
Korean actress Han Chae Young (Sassy Girl Chun Hyang, Only You) joins the cast of Boys over Flowers in the special role of Min Seo Hyun. I can't wait to see this since I loved Meteor Garden and HYD so much. Now Korea's joining the bandwagon with their own adaptation of the famous manga. Hmmm, this better be good.
So, will the Philippines follow suit? Gawd, I hope not!

It just dawned on me today, Iisa Pa Lamang's writers are taking their inspiration from US Daytime Soaps! How else would you explain the absurd storylines and lame characterizations spawning a fan favorite villain? The (apparently) never-ending love triangle between Miguel/Catherine/Raphael is typical of these daytime soaps that have been running for years. Campy, I know. But viewers love heightened reality.
If I didn't know better, I'd say the four lead characters were patterned after Ridge, Brooke, Nick and Taylor of The Bold and the Beautiful... with slight tweaking to suit the Filipino taste. Then again, that's just me and my absurd conspiracy theories.

What's with Cathy Garcia-Molina and her fascination with wigs? In all but one of the movies she's done for Star Cinema, the lead girl is always seen sporting one. Does a wig or someone who wore one figure prominently in her past that she's decided to make it a running theme in her flicks? Wala lang, just an observation.
When will they ever air the third season of Criminal Minds? Studio 23 already had the second season finale last week and now they're doing re-runs of the first season for the nth time. Darn! They should be on FUSE too.

But really, have you ever wondered what it feels like to be... seventeen again?

For someone who can't stand Teri Hatcher, Susan was suprisingly less irritating in this episode. I loved her scenes with Mike and MJ (perhaps it's for the best that they stay divorced). Oh, and Jackson acts more like her oldest kid rather than a boyfriend.
I ♥ Juanita! I look forward to this little girl's antics each week.
One thing I'm not buying is Dave going after Mike. It's too convenient. Please, must the bad guys always be after Mr. Delfino?

Oh, and speaking of Brothers & Sisters, looks like they're finally addressing the long-forgotten paternity of the twins. From Watch w/ Kristin...
Hilary in Portland, Ore.: What's coming up on Brothers & Sisters?
A Walker is dying! Dying—not dead—so don't start paying your condolences just yet. There's a liver failing, and a transplant needed, but the donated organ has to come from daddy. And naturally, this will be a Walker feller who didn't know he was a daddy. Who could it be? Your guesses go right down there in the comments.
My money's on Kevin. Just please don't let this turn out as another Three Dads, One Mom type of storyline.

Smallville's getting pretty interesting too thanks to those Clark/Lois moments at The Daily Planet. Now they're far off from couplehood yet but their banters are all that's important. Too bad Lana's returning for a couple of episodes.
On local TV, things at Survivor Philippines are starting to heat up now that the merge is fast approaching. Tsk, tsk... bad move, Jarakay. Now it's pretty much given that Naak will enter the merge having the majority. Kakainin kayo ng buhay. Haha!
