formula gone bad
All-powerful giant network ABS-CBN just worsened their downfall with the release of 'Bora', one of the new 30 shows released by the said network as a plot to snatch back the top spot in the ratings war.

'Bora' is a sitcom about five musclebound actors prancing around in a TV studio cheaply made to look like a beach. Supposedly, 'Bora' is to follow the ancient Pinoy sitcom formula to no avail. Here are the reasons why this sitcom failed to win the hearts of the audience.

Firstly, the Hunks are overrated. Take it from me, these five men are in 50% of the network's programs and their images are very tiring to the eyes. Secondly, The comedy is a joke. Nobody wants to laugh at the pranks of five prancing musclebound actors in a fake beach set... Well, maybe laugh AT them and not at the jokes. Thirdly, the Hunks are too pretty. Blame it on the machismo attitude, but no self-respecting man would ever want to feast their eyes on other good-looking men. THe pretty ladies don't do it for the male viewers either.

If ABS really wanted the top spot back, they should begin to stop muscling their stars and start pumping their creative writing team. As long as they keep up the bad work, nothing will happen to their suffering ratings.
