There are numerous Filipino shows to watch, ranging from Pinoy Big Brother to Wish Ko Lang, but one of the most recent additions to the lineup may have caught you off guard – the Darna Philippine tv series, which airs on GMA 7 every Sunday night. But what makes this show so special? And how does it compare to other Darna shows we’ve seen? We’ll look at these questions and more as we discuss what makes the Darna Philippine TV series so great.
If you love superhero stories
Rather, it presents Filipinos’ interpretations of an action-packed story based on ancient myths and folklore in a way that is culturally sensitive and absolutely Filipino.
One of the reasons I liked the show was because they did a lot of big budget, well-shot fight scenes with lots of motion and incredible camera angles. It felt like watching an action movie without all the popcorn, a really good excuse to finally get that popcorn maker from Costco.
If you love beautiful actors
The only major drawback of this show was that it wasn’t filmed in HD. It felt as if we were watching on a hand-held, black and white TV that can’t fully capture detail. The Darna movie is filmed in HD, but this show was not. This is probably because of how long ago it was made and the tools that were available at the time.
If you love complex characters with depth
The two-part pilot episode gives us a lot of insight into what is to come from all our characters and how they might affect eachother. She also struggles to make sure her relationship with her mom stays strong but at the same time maintaining a one-sided friendship with her step dad, much to her mother’s dismay.
If you need a role model who knows how to fight and look good doing it
She-Ra was a hero from another planet who fought for justice in Etheria. She taught me how to be unapologetically myself, speak up when others won’t, and fight like hell to defend those who can’t defend themselves.
If you’re looking for diverse female characters on TV
If you’re looking for diverse female characters on TV, then look no further than the new Filipino show, Darna. The new reboot premiered on April 7th and tackles many of these societal issues head-on.
