My New Favorite Show: LaLola!

Not ONE show since the “awesome in the beginning, but all out horrible in the end” Marimar struck me as charming… until now, all thanks to GMA’s new remake of Lalola, starring Rhian Ramos and JC de Vera.

Having looked at the Argentinian trailer on YouTube and after having watched the first two weeks of the Philippine version, this show is a keeper for me.

I think what makes me tune in every 3.30PM PST is Keempee De Leon’s “Gary” and Rhian Ramos’s portrayal of a man stuck in a woman’s body — they are just hilarious together. The third that keeps me tuned is, of course, JC de Vera, and his crush on Lola (or Lalo heh) — it’s very refreshing that, though it is unfortunate he’s not teamed up with Ysamien Kurdi, at least we’re given a chance to see him with someone different. *Change can be good.

Probably the only thing that annoys me is the whole “witch clan” thing the story has going on in the woods with all that dodged up dust flying everywhere into people’s mouths, noses, and skin. It makes the show seem like a telefantaserye which has become a real drag considering both ABS-CBN and GMA have at least one show that is in the fantasy genre. Just stop it already! It would have been fine if Ada took revenge on Lalo the normal way: hire a 21st century witch and skip all the graphics effects.

However, I can overlook that since the pros definitely outweigh the cons. All in all, I hope this show won’t disappoint!

    @dinu – I wish I can provide you a site that offers english subs for Lalola, but there aren’t any. PinoyChannel even deleted the Lalola vids! So I’m stuck having to watch it everyday on GMAPinoyTV — and it’s still behind schedule to that of the episodes in the Philippines. 😦

    @belacan – I could write a synopsis for each episode, but I’m just currently packed this week. It’s Finals Week here in the US, so maybe I’ll get back to writing reviews/summaries on Thursday of this coming week. I’m not promising anything though. lol

    By the way, are you watching this show on GMAPinoyTV or on pinoychannel?

    Thanks, Heatguy. I’ve watched 10 episodes of the Philippines LLL at so far and am eager to see more. This is a great show. I’d pay good money for any complete Lalola version with English.

    This week a Peruvian version of Lalola is suppose to start (Jan. 20). There is a report that Mexico will try to launch one again, after a false start a couple years back. Am I going to keep studying Spanish? You bet!
