Not much to ‘Idol’-ize

GERONIMO (CENTER, WITH MILBY AND MARTIN). A rivalry for her affection looms as one of the series’ main plot and conflict hooks.

WHEN THE new “musical teleserye,” “Idol,” debuted on the small screen last week, we made it a point to catch the premiere telecast, to see what unique treats the new show had to offer.

Big production numbers, definitely. With Sarah Geronimo as its principal female lead, the opening telecast featured bright, colorful songs and dances that gave the show an extra-special lilt.

After that big, bright start, however, the new musical-drama series settled into an all too familiar storytelling groove that had longtime friends, Sarah and Sam Milby, competing in a singing search, which Sarah eventually won.

Financial mess

They’re paired off as a stellar singing team, but their promising careers are abruptly sidetracked when Sarah’s parents are caught in a financial mess not of their own devising. In subsequent episodes, the family hides in the province, where Sarah assumes a new identity and has to say goodbye to her stellar dreams.

For his part, Sam tries to go solo, but without much success. He’s distracted by his ditzy mother (Zsa Zsa Padilla) and his futile efforts to find his best friend, whom he misses terribly.

The program’s third episode focused on a new principal character, a sassy jack-of-all-trades played by Coco Martin, who turns out to have a heart of gold, because he’s bringing up a brood of kids all by his lonesome.

It’s also clear that, despite their initial aso’t pusa skirmishes, he likes Sarah, and a Sam-Coco rivalry for her affection looms as one of the series’ main plot and conflict hooks.

So, after the first three telecasts, how does the show measure up? It gets plus points for some of its bright and tuneful musical numbers, but its plotting is slow and predictable, and its performances are generally high-strung but neither authentic nor dynamic.

As usual, Sarah’s portrayal is generally well-meaning but lacking in believability and genuine emotional investment. She keeps shifting automatically from “earnest” to “kooky” like it’s simply a matter of punching buttons.

Sam’s problem is still his sticky way of speaking Tagalog. On top of that, the character he “creates” is dour and dull, and runs the acting gamut only from “A” to “E.” He either doesn’t know that there’s much more to the thespic alphabet than that, or doesn’t care to investigate those other possibilities.

As for Coco, he too has slipped into a thespic rut, despite his heretofore “indie” credentials. His “sassy” character here is too kneejerk-hectic to be either convincing or appealing. And, what’s he doing in a musical-drama show when he can’t really sing? His number with his singing siblings ended with him doing a rap wrapup!

Thus far, the best work in the series in terms of performance is contributed by Zsa Zsa, who can act and sing with real relish and powerful pipes. But, even Zsa Zsa’s best efforts are diminished in terms of impact by the generally uncreative way her musical number is staged around her.

On point of believability, the series encounters heaps of problems when Sarah and her relatives assume new identities in order to be able to “disappear” in the province. How do they attempt to “vanish”? By putting on colorful wigs!

Come on, that’s only going to call more attention to them in the boondocks—so, the show’s lack of interest in being logical and credible presents itself as an unnecessary distraction that prevents viewers from being genuinely drawn into its storytelling.

We trust that the production will find at least some of these points worth considering and remedying, so that there will be more to “Idol” to idolize in the weeks and months to come.

In fairness kay Mr.Torre lagi niyang sinusubaybayan si Sarah :13bungi1: ...pati tele serye may review siya...akala ko pang movie ka lang Mr.Torre???

As much as i hate Mr. Torre...constructive naman ang pagkakasulat niya...marami siyang good points dito.

Pero i think sinadya naman talaga ang Idol na hindi masyadong seryoso... minsan nga may pagka cartoons ang dating eh.

I think it's better to have room for improvement than none at all. And the beauty of 1DOL is to see how far the production team can stretch their creativity. And it's very bold to come out with this kind of teleserye where everyone is doing drama, fantaserye and reality shows all the time.

All I know is that it is very refreshing to see Sarah doing teleserye or kantaserye again. I really believe down to the very deep core of my being when I saw her act on the movie Filipinas that if Sarah were to concentrate on acting, she'll definitely give everyone a run for their money. She is that good. ym41

I agree na yung first 2 episode of 1DOL were no too empressive ang story. Besides, Pinoy televiewers are not yet ready for a musical teleserye unlike abroad like Glee na na-aapreciate nila. But on the 3rd, 4th, 5th episode may excitement na for the televiewers to watch especially next week na talagang kaabang-abang. I'm sure may mga feedback ng natatanggap ang staff ng 1DOL especially yung negative side, so let's hope na maimprove nilang mabuti yung story which is very important para magrate ng todo ang 1DOL.

thanks for sharing..
di talaga ako nagkamali alam ko maglalabas ng 'review" tong si nestor torre about idol. ok points taken (para matigil ka lang hehe)
well for me, kudos na rin sa first two episodes kahit alam natin na mahirap makahook kaagad ang ganitong genre ng teleserye..di katulad ng mga mega over drama teleserye na nakakhook agad aminin man o hindi dahil yun na ang nkasanayan ng ibang mga pinoy tv viewers..the next three episodes gumanda na sya at marami na ring nahohook. feeling ko sa mga susunod na araw papalo na ito..mas gusto kong not so impressive sya (others may think) sa bandang simula pero gaganda ng bonggang bongga hanggang finale..

OT: re agua bendita, maganda ito nung umpisa maraming nahook kasi magaling yung bata, maganda story, pero nung lumaki na at tumagal na, sala na..di ko na nga masyado pinanood to nung huli dahil feeling ko ginagago ako ng seryeng ito :D .. yan ang bantayan natin sa idol..kung nawawala na yung quality, email agad tayo sa idol staff. yun lang..

Criticism is expected…and this should help the show for improvement… since its still first week of showing, maybe we still have to expect more of the show. Some says while watching the show, it’s just a typical simple repeated story na parang napanood na dati. So it is a show that carried by the actors or carried by Sarah. Not a show carried by the story. About Sam, when you hear him speak tagalog, it’s not pleasing to the ear… buti sana kung sa story, he’s born and raised outside Philippines, isa din yan na nakakasira. Si Coco at least nakakatulong siya because he’s really a good actor at dami nakikilig sa kanila. Hopefully there will be something of the story for the viewers to crave until the end. Of course, as Sarah’s fans we are longing that they will give her more challenging roles para mapansin pa yong kagalingan niya sa pag-arte, given that when you see her smile, her undeniable charm kahit ano na lang puwde na, for me it is not enough, she deserves more break…

peace and joy to all!

After the first week of 1Dol, marami na akong nabasa mga comments and opinions about the program. For me, I found all of them naman valid and reasonable. Here's my share of observation, I hope makatulong din in the future.
Alam ko na ang mga supporters ni Sarah came from different age groups and social groups. Bata, matanda, ABCD crowd, kahit anong gender, kaya meron talagang maganda ang reviews at meron din naman mga constructive observations.
From a point of view of my age group, 40 years old and above, medyo hindi ako sanay duon sa mga camera movements na medyo mabilis. Siguro sa mga younger groups, ok sa kanila yung mga fast movements and cuts. I know somebody from the 60 yrs old and above group na kahit talagang gustong gusto nila si Sarah, hindi nila makayanang manuod ng ganuon ang pacing ng camera dahil nahihilo sila, kaya nag-stop na lang silang manuod.
Meron namang iba, like me, na nagsawa na sa matagal na pacing ng story. Yung tipong ang isang scene na lilingon lang ang gagawin ng character ay mga one minute na. For me, tama lang yung pacing ng story, hindi nakaka-bore. Hindi pinapahaba, kaya hindi nagiging predictable.
Yung namang about using OPM para sa mga songs, napakagandang concept. Una, makakatulong talaga sa pagpapahalaga ng mga Pilipino talents natin. I enjoy specially yung mga songs during the 80's and 90's. And nababasa ko rin sa mga blogs, yung mga younger ones that dont know the 80's songs na OPM, na-appreciate nila and commented na meron palang ganuong songs na parang foreign ang dating. Para naman sa mga newer songs, nalalaman naman nuong mga kagaya ko.
Sa story, some said na medyo unrealistic yung mga situations, like yung pagpapanggap ng family ni Sarah, duon nga pumapasok ang humor, comedy di ba?
Pero I found the story also, very Pilipino. Yung pagiging mapagmahal sa family, yung love for God, yung mga values regarding respect for parents and older siblings, yung pag-value ng education, Yung love natin sa music, yung pagiging masaya natin kahit maraming problema and marami pang iba na talaga naman you'll be proud for being born a Filipino.
If there is an area of improvement, siguro on the technical aspect, also in the contintuity. Minsan mapansin mo na parang iba ang suot ng mga characters sa next scene, hindi tugma sa unang scene. But that is of minimal consideration, but if we can come up with something that is flawless, baka this time, manalo na tayo ng Foreign Award at hindi lang nominee like Pangarap na Bituin.
Tungkol naman sa pag-gaya ng concept sa ibang show. Hindi pa ako pinapanganak, meron ng ganitong concept na show at movie. Pabalik-balik lang naman yan, nagkataon lang yung mga pinanganak sa panahong ito ang naabutan na lang yung "Glee".
I would like to commend lahat ng casts, from major roles hanggang sa mga walk in parts lang, talaga namang magaling. specially the main casts. the production, talagang pinaghandaan.
Over-all, I found the show light but heavy in reminding and teaching us about our roots.
This is one show, na after kang manuod, magaan ang pakiramdam mo at nakangiti ka pa. And you'll have hope that afterall being a filipino is something that we should be proud of.
At para naman mawala na yung masyadong negativity sa paligid, kailangan ng mas positive para mas maganda ang outlook ng buhay. And yuon naman ang pinaka-importante, kung ano ang impact nito sa mga manunuod.


To all the cast and staff of 1Dol, Congratulations, for even daring to produce this type of program is a commendation. I pray that in the succeeding episodes, mas lalo pa ninyong mapagaan, mapasaya, at mag-umapaw ang pagmamahalan sa aming mga buhay.

God bless you all!

Right! Thanks for sharing.

Ganda observations mo, heartfelt, simple and super sincere

like a true Popster. Me, I am just an ordinary fan,

super enjoy just to see Sarah. Kaya responsable sa mga

fans na gaya ko ang mga producers ng mga

shows ni Sarah including IDOLS. Sarah has so much to

give and so talented if her handlers know how to use

her talents well. They can really go miles and miles

with Sarah's fans adulation including much income if

they are creative enough. One and only lang ngayon si

Ms. Sarah Geronimo. Walang katulad!

I and many others will look forward to the producers

and directors and ABS-CBN to strongly consider the

views of fans like me, especially the very bright ones

like ms. rosary, There is still so much to idolise in

IDOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hello po. eto po ay opinion ko lang. somehow, may point naman po yung writer. ako po ay fan ni sarah. however, parang may kulang talaga dun sa idol. parang if not for sarah, hindi ko papanoorin yun. hindi naman si sarah at yung acting nya ang problema at marami ng naprove si sarah na she can really act convincingly. palagay ko po sa story,yung plot ang medyo bland. medyo parang kulang ng something pa na aabangan factor besides dun sa love triangle nila at kilig scenes. sana laliman pa yung story. more twist besides sa kilig. ako po ay hindi fan ng agua bendita pero kahit ganun yung story, paulit ulit na lang na nawala si agua or bendita, inabangan pa rin ng tao. sana ganun. twist, depth, make it more interesting and kaabang abang. lalo na ngayon, yung itatapat sa kabila, kahit hindi ganun kasikat yung artista mukang maganda yung material based sa teaser nila. palagay ko po kasi, pag sa tv, although may factor yung sikat yung artista, mas malaki pa din yung factor na maganda yung material at story. In all fairness naman dun sa writer, mukang naghohope sya na ausin yung idol para mas maging kaabang abang. sana nga mas gumanda pa to, at ng makaatract pa ng viewers at tumaas pa ang ratings, kasi ang tagal hinintay ulit si sarah sa primetime, sayang naman kung isang season lang aabutin nito. again po, opinion lang.


hello, krytel and rosary. i really liked reading your observations as well as the other popsters' opinions regarding Idol and nut (n. u. torre), confirming my own instinct that Sarah's popsters are not only intelligent, articulate, civil...but also are independent-thinking, broadminded and fair (though it's hard to be balanced where Sarah is concerned, but we try, don't we?).

yet nut is one who jumps the gun almost every time when it comes to Sarah. a review of nut's past articles reveals a pathetic eagerness to drag Sarah down although he cloaks his "critiques" in high-faluting journalistic language. notice that nut dwells on shortcomings but NEVER expounds on the obviously positive aspects of Sarah's projects.

nut declared HATING KAPATID as a failure, but we all know that P85M-plus can buy the company he hides behind. nut arrogantly passes judgement on IDOL too soon (again) based on a few episodes, in the process belittling the "thespic" skills of Sarah, Sam and Coco. yet he inserts a "kiss-assy" little blurb for Zsazsa's singing and acting, perhaps afraid of offending someone who might stomp on his you-know-what, or with the juice to have him fired. did you notice he carefully swished around not critiquing IDOL's directorial staff? will nut eat his words when IDOL (as is happening now) harvests praise and acclaim all along the way to the Araneta finale? nut really should stop the habit of stepping on his nut so prematurely.

i could respect nut's analysis if he cared to at least comment on;(1) the attention-getting flash mob scene (i really think that concept was genius), or (2)IDOL as a genuine showcase for fresh filipino talent, or (3)the challenge of using Original Pilipino Music compositions. what nut did was give a sarcastic lecture on all possible reasons why IDOL could not reach nut's personal standards of excellence.

there is so much more to come, i bet. IDOL is set to run thru the new year (?), and there just may be a lot of happy surprise upon surprise in store for us, and for this impatient nut who just can't wait to start bashing. i have faith that the planning team who surprised us with that flash mob dance has more magic tricks to entertain us thru the coming weeks and months.

yes, nut introduced some grudging and lukewarm praises for IDOL, but right away turned and soured whatever good points he just made, actually debating with himself - and confirmed for me that nut really is a vindictive, biased, and ultimately dishonest writer. (popster ashtin crushed nut so thoroughly in her post of 28march2009.) with all of nut's professorially ponderous over-our-heads prose, i really fear that what is in nut's head can make the weeds grow. as a popster said earlier, all those big words but nothing actually understood. ok, breathe in....breathe out...a nut is a fruit...an oily seed....fruit...

In all fairness naman dun sa writer, mukang naghohope sya na ausin yung idol para mas maging kaabang abang. sana nga mas gumanda pa to, at ng makaatract pa ng viewers at tumaas pa ang ratings, kasi ang tagal hinintay ulit si sarah sa primetime, sayang naman kung isang season lang aabutin nito. again po, opinion lang.


hello, krytel and rosary. i really liked reading your observations as well as the other popsters' opinions regarding Idol and nut (n. u. torre), confirming my own instinct that Sarah's popsters are not only intelligent, articulate, civil...but also are independent-thinking, broadminded and fair (though it's hard to be balanced where Sarah is concerned, but we try, don't we?).

yet nut is one who jumps the gun almost every time when it comes to Sarah. a review of nut's past articles reveals a pathetic eagerness to drag Sarah down although he cloaks his "critiques" in high-faluting journalistic language. notice that nut dwells on shortcomings but NEVER expounds on the obviously positive aspects of Sarah's projects.

nut declared HATING KAPATID as a failure, but we all know that P85M-plus can buy the company he hides behind. nut arrogantly passes judgement on IDOL too soon (again) based on a few episodes, in the process belittling the "thespic" skills of Sarah, Sam and Coco. yet he inserts a "kiss-assy" little blurb for Zsazsa's singing and acting, perhaps afraid of offending someone who might stomp on his you-know-what, or with the juice to have him fired. did you notice he carefully swished around not critiquing IDOL's directorial staff? will nut eat his words when IDOL (as is happening now) harvests praise and acclaim all along the way to the Araneta finale? nut really should stop the habit of stepping on his nut so prematurely.

i could respect nut's analysis if he cared to at least comment on;(1) the attention-getting flash mob scene (i really think that concept was genius), or (2)IDOL as a genuine showcase for fresh filipino talent, or (3)the challenge of using Original Pilipino Music compositions. what nut did was give a sarcastic lecture on all possible reasons why IDOL could not reach nut's personal standards of excellence.

there is so much more to come, i bet. IDOL is set to run thru the new year (?), and there just may be a lot of happy surprise upon surprise in store for us, and for this impatient nut who just can't wait to start bashing. i have faith that the planning team who surprised us with that flash mob dance has more magic tricks to entertain us thru the coming weeks and months.

yes, nut introduced some grudging and lukewarm praises for IDOL, but right away turned and soured whatever good points he just made, actually debating with himself - and confirmed for me that nut really is a vindictive, biased, and ultimately dishonest writer. (popster ashtin crushed nut so thoroughly in her post of 28march2009.) with all of nut's professorially ponderous over-our-heads prose, i really fear that what is in nut's head can make the weeds grow. as a popster said earlier, all those big words but nothing actually understood. ok, breathe in....breathe out...a nut is a fruit...an oily seed....fruit...



very well said, maniwala na lang tayo sa goodness...
