Wild about Wowowee

Sep 29, 2008 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Winnipeg Sun

If you mixed The Ed Sullivan Show and The Price is Right inside a Filipino disco, you might have a phenomenon close to Wowowee, the live taping of which drew a huge cross-section of Winnipeg's Filipino ...

You must be joking? Talk about Filipino trash! The show sucks and only for the brainless. Spare me the adulations for a show that didn't do much for the victims of the stampede inspite of the hype.

This show would make a ton of cash if adopted for the American market. Those girls on the show scream American superficiality.

You call it a show? It is one big circus run by clowns and trying hards. If GMA and ABS-CBN should leave the air for good will not matter a bit for me. Most of their shows really sucks and really an insult to the viewers and perhaps one of the reasons why there are a lot of dumb Filipinos.

I have no problem with being called by you as "one of the dumb Filipinos" and I will continue to patronize Wowowee. You cannot categorize laughter. You laugh because there is a reason for laughing and who really cares if it was Willie or Joey de Leon who provoked it.

I picked the three of you because there are several similarities in all of your responses: idiocy, insensitiveness, colonial mentality at worst and professional social-climbing at best. I don't think you belong to the elites of the society so don't talk like you're way above the masses.

Ako po ay isang tunay na masang Pilipino. Ipagpaumanhin niyo subalit wala sinuman sa inyo ang nakikita kong tunay na nabibilang sa uri ko kaya't masasabi kong ako'y naiiba sa inyo at maaring masabi na wala sa lugar na ako'y makipagulayaw sa mga tulad niyo. Sa kabila nito sana'y ipahintulot niyong ako ay makilahok sa inyong talakayan upang makapagbigay ng aking sariling opinyon ukol sa usaping narito.

Hindi po ako nanood ng wowowie sapagkat wala akong TV, putol ang aming kuryente, at ubos ang aking oras upang kumayod para ako ay hindi lumiban sa pagkain. Marahil ay totoong nakakaaliw na manood sa nasabing palabas lalo't kagiliw-giliw ang mga artista at magagandang kababaihang tampok dito, subalit ang isang tulad ko ay nawalan na ng karapatang maging maligaya at masaya magmula nang ako'y isilang na mahirap. Kahirapan din ang dahilan kung bakit ako ay natutong maging tamad at batugan, at sa kahirapan na rin ako papanaw.

Maraming salamat po.

Nais kong ipabatid sayo ang aking pagkaluha sa iyong kwento. Ngunit ganun na lamang ang aking pagkataka na sa kabila ng iyong kalunos-lunos na kahirapan ay nakuha mo pang bumili ng kompyuter at magpakabit ng Internet. Nakakaawa. Nakakahabag. Nakakasindak.

Salamat po sa pakikiramay niyo sa aking kahirapan. Nakuha niyo pang ipabatid ang inyong pagluha sa aking salaysay, bagamat naaaninag ko ang sa wari ko'y may kaunting pagdududa sa panig niyo.

Hindi po sa akin ang ginagamit kong "computer" at "internet connection". Nakikisuyo lamang po ako sa aking kaibigan na mapalad na nanalo sa lotto noong isang buwan. Kung tutuparin niya ang kanyang pangako, marahil ay makapagpatuloy ako sa aking pag-aaral ngayong pasukan. Ipagdasal niyo po sana....

@masa

are you for real?!

sorry hunny but sob stories don't often get my sympathy. especially sob stories that are obviously bogus.

the show is a joke. have you any idea what other people from other countries think of us when they watch the show? nakakainsulto!

just last month my cousin tried buying something at the store and some guys followed her around singing boom-tada-tada in a really insulting way. tapos meron pa yung isa kong kaibigan, last year he asked if i can dance like those "hos" he sees on wowowee.

I'm sorry if i just can't agree with anyone who thinks this show is great. it's the cheapest form of entertainment with the dumbest people for contestants and viewers as well.

You miss the point of entertainment. Nothing is entertaining for all. One man's jewel is another man's trinket. Such is life.

You focus on what 'griefers' will ridicule rather then the aspects of the show that are purely filipino. The people in the audience showing their pride from where they have emigrated and the loved ones they bring the island to experience the show's entertainment. People are dancing, smiling and joking. Kids, elderly, the popular, the unpopular... The beautiful, the handsome, the ugly, the fat... The talented, the untalented, the crazy, the silly... Everyone is equally represented. People are sharing simple talents and the country is laughing at the common aspects they find entertaining from friends in their communities. For heaven's sake, the producers have even created a game show in which english speaking foreigners can take part! Truly Filipino 100%!

This is your country. Who gives a rat's ass what anyone thinks of it. The attributes found in the show I find enjoyable because it fully shares the filipino experience at the layman's level. It is what it is.

Nothing is perfect, but that doesn't you can't find beauty or creativity in something.

You're ashamed? Ewww. Sorry pal but you have no choice. You have to live with it. And whether you like it or not, you will always be a brown monkey. It's totally up to you how you'll deal with something you cannot change. You're such a pathetic loser.

And sadly dumb people like Jem don't see it. But she's complaining how dumb the show is when in fact she is the dumbest of all the damned.
