Mulawin Flies Away

Image hosted by

Tonight will be Mulawin's last episode. A lot of things have happened during it's almost 1 year run and it has also proven to be the crowning success of GMA 7 's rule as the leading Philippine broadcast network after the almost unbeatable ABS-CBN buckled in submission to its strew of top rated shows.
In retrospect, Mulawin has probably been the best-produced TV show in recent Philippine TV history. Sure it's got less than fantastic effects, the make up is terrible and the storyline was obviously expanded due to its popularity. But I consider this an attempt to expand the usually shallow philippine C-D crowds threshold for sappy stories into more philosophical epics and imperfect protagonists and bad guys whith a little "good" in them. Also, Its sure as heck easier on the eyes with Angel Locsin and Bianca King than, uuh...Krystala?
