Guys please post your BEST & WORST Original Pinoy TV Dramas.

Well for me my BEST pinoy drama choice is Pangako Sayo starred by Kristine Hermosa & Jericho Rosales.

and my WORST drama choice is Margarita starred by Wendy Valdez.

HOw about ppl.......

you MUST give REASONS for your choices! Explain WHY you think the drama is the BEST/WORST. Otherwise your post will be DELETED.

ako din pangako sa yo and sa dulo ng walang hanggan. I'm a fan of Kristine, I just find her soooo pretty. I don't know about you but I love Gulong ng Palad especially the beginning. I'm so looking forward to her new series Princessa ng Banyera. I love TJ as well but I also like her with her real life boyfriend Diether Ocampo.

Hate ko din Margarita and Natutulog ba ang Diyos cause I don't like Roxanne, I'm sorry for her fans. I also did not like Panday and Sarah's new teleserye with Jericho. I feel like they are trying to force a connection with Echo and Sarah and I just don't see it. Especially now that Heart is there......I was like what the heck is she doing there. It just feels weird.

I haven't watched too many teleseryes but here are the ones I like :

I LOVED Maria Flordeluna's ending.. it was so sad.
I liked Gulong ng Palad because of Sheryn Regis' Song - Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka
I also like anything Sarah Geronimo.. so Bituing Walang Ningning and also Pangarap na Bituin

I don't know if i didn't like any teleserye.. but I know that there were some parts about a few teleseryes that i didn't totally like.

I cant really state the bests or the worsts coz i dont really watch too much local shows but i liked watching Pangarap na Bituin & those telenovelas that stars Claudine Barretto & the late Rico Yan since i really like watching them together. The shows that i really dont like are Marimar, Zaido, Mulawin & yeah most of them are from gma i just dont like their taste when is comes to making their shows they are too unrealistic just like Zaido!

Best - Maging Sino Ka Man and Mga Anghel na Walang Langit
Worst - Walang Kapalit, Till Death Do As Part, Mula Sa Puso etc...

Margarita was actually a good series. Its only flaw was its choice of actors. Wendy, though, was good for a first timer actress.

I like Maging Sino Ka Man and I can't wait for book 2 to start.

I disliked Margarita... the only reason why I watched a few episodes of it is because of Diether Ocampo. He should keep his hair short coz it looks better on him than his Rounin hair... oh yeah, I did not like Rounin either... that series boasted about the special effects, action stunts but goodness, they should've made sure that the story was good... :rolleyes:

best for me is sana'y maulit muli by kimerald. it is my favorite! and also maging sino ka man. i love the 4 lead actors plus the supporting ones too. of all the telenovelas i've seen for both competing networks, the worst for me is BAKEKANG! the story is uncomprehensible and crazy! i don't even like sunshine dizon.. she looks to PLASTIC in my opinion..

well i'm more on KAPAMILYA teleseryes. :D
am not really fond of watching tv but i like claudine's seryes.
Mula sa puso was good, MARINA and sa Dulo ng walang hanggan also.
not really unto walang kapalit and the one where she starred with Diether, angelika, bea, john lloyd and shaina.

best- MariMar
Worst- Till Death Do As Part ( I didn't even know this drama exist not till now)

how can you say that something is worst if you didn't have the slightest idea that it exist? sorry, it's just too confusing...

anyway, best for me is "maging sino ka man", worst is everything that gma 7 produced. that's all!

There are really great teleseryes from ABS-CBN but for me, the BEST is SANA MAULIT MULI. It's the first tv series that has that kind of story. And mind you, the cinematography is also nice. :iloveyou: I just watched it religiously. :thumbsup


The WORST for me is LIGAW NA BULAKLAK. I just hate the character of Leah. Enough said. :thumbdown

my favorites are:
Maging Sino Ka Man (Book 1 had 2 EPIC love stories of Eli and Jackie, JB and Celine which were superbly acted by John Lloyd, Bea and Anne...even Sam's acting improved a lot.

Pangako Sayo (sindicated to other countries all over the world, starring Kristine Hermosa and Jericho Rosales who had wonderful chemistry)

Kahit Isang Saglit (co produced with Malaysia, Jericho Rosales with charming Malaysian Carmen Soo)


Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay (the drama that started the great team up of John Lloyd 'Yuri' Cruz and Bea 'Katrina' Alonzo - their chemistry was AMAZING)

Worst are probably from GMA because yeah their production quality is low and even the actors can't act (maybe some can, but most are just bad) and I just generally dislike anything from that channel.

There are ones from ABS that are pretty forgettable too like the one starred Claudine and Piolo being stepsibblings in love, Panday because Jericho and Heart didn't have chemistry at all!

Best: Maging Sino Ka Man (book 1) _ Love how the they made some twists in the story but it was kinda long, as in.

Babangon Ako't Dudurugin Kita - good acting though there are some bad but they pulled it through.

Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay - this one is classic, dupe long but worth it. SO many twists in the story, worth watching.

Worst: Bakekang - I don't know I just don't like the way the story goes everyday.

and Panday - I just don't like Heart-Echo tandem. It might have clicked if they choose a different pair(especially Hearts position).

Maging Sino Ka Man (Book 1&2) - I love 1st Book than the 2nd.

The Characters were so amazing. I've never seen such an amazing development in characters. They were not like those typical characters you see on other Philippine drama. Especially, JB and Celine, I was so into them. They had the most interesting love story. The lines were very captivating. And the plot was definitely interesting. It's worth watching. :thumbsup

And Kudos also to all the actors for doing such an amazing job for bringing the characters into life. clapclap

Sana Maulit Muli

I've seen this kind of story before. The film 'Only You' had the same plot but still I find this drama okay.

Mga Anghel na walang langit :innocent

A very interesting story. :crying:


SOOo many to mention them all. I just know that all of them were produced by GMA network. :thumbdown :whistle

My two all time favorites have to be:

Lobo - Piolo and Angel's collaboration was just so kilig to the max and the story line wasn't so bad either. It had passion, mystery, intrigue, and very cute scenes. In addition, I loved the friendship between Dimples and Angel in this one.

LaLola - Yes, a GMA show. hah :) This is probably the only show I ever EVER liked from GMA. Rhian and Kimpee were just hilarious and I loved the kilig-factor between Rhian and JC. This show was just so funny; a delight to watch, really.

Some others worth mentioning: Sana Maulit Muli, My Girl

The WORST in my book:

Marimar - DO NOT GET ME WRONG, this show was awesome in the beginning. However, it started going into the crapper when Angelika became Marimar's half sister (GMA extended the show). Then it all came crumbling down on its ass.

Ang Babaeng Hinugot Sa Aking Tadyang - This show was SO not what it promoted to be. Everyone thought it was going to be some kind of spin off of "Mr. & Mrs. Smith." Dead wrong. Far from it. I hate how Proserfina is just so badly beaten up in this show and the directing.. don't get me started.

Afternoon dramas on ABS - Pieta, Eva Fonda, Ligaw Na Bulaklak - All for the same reason: I don't want to watch sadness and pain rolled into a ginormous ball of stupidity during my afternoons.

And that's my two cents. :D

same here!! the best is Maging Sino Ka Man... my family even had our relatives in the philippines send us the original DVDs just for this telenovela...

i haven't watched too many pinoy dramas lately but the worst ones are the fictional ones and when the effects are so ... ughh. :(

the best: Tayong Dalawa (though it is not finished yet, i think this is the only teleserye that get me hooked up and i like the story ..it is not boring to watch and the actors are good)

the worst: all those teleseryes that has kontrabida that is super duper bad to the point that you'll ask yourself are these really human?

BEST: Iisa Pa Lamang, Tayong Dalawa
BECAUSE: Tayong Dalawa has good casting, and Iisa Pa Lamang dealt with Haciendas (Spanish and Mexican plantations), the Spanish and Mexican brought and started the wave of TeleNovelas in the Philippines.

WORST: Marimar, and Margarita
BECAUSE: Marimar (the GMA adaptation) was too long in my opinion and I didnt really like the cast except for Marian :worship
Margarita because the story was weak and the cast was boring for me :unsure:

Maging Sino Ka Man (ABS-CBN 2) - i would like to commend their writers! the characters are multi-dimensional---my favorite is Celine (Anne Curtis) yeah, she's "the best sl*t in town!" the characters developed a lot and their lines are unforgettable.

Encantadia (GMA7)- the only fantaserye that gains my respect and got the standards that i am looking for! even though this is not first-ever fantaserye, this is the most magical plot i've ever seen. i like the idea of putting pinoy culture in here like the diwatas.

Pieta (ABS-CBN 2)- i know that some scenes are very gruesome--but i love the plot. and cherie gil, who is known for villain roles managed to be a protagonist which is tough act for someone like her.


Dyesebel (GMA 7)- I don't know, I just don't like the cinematography---everything.

Pangako Sa'yo - From the story, acting, the set, and the chemistry between Kris-Echo!
And yeah.. who can forget Madame Claudia & Amor?
KTKH - For a drama, it was suspenseful and thrilling. Also because of JLC-BEA. Hehe.
Tayong Dalawa -Despite the twists, turns and extended subplot, it still keeps you hooked.
Pangarap Na Bituin - Cliche storyline but with good chemistries between the leads.

I feel bad for GMA, almost everyone who replied here are probably biased TFC subscribers!
(LIKE ME!) muahahha.Just Kidding
but I have to agree!!

Oh but one TFC drama I did not like at ALL was Panday!
Cinematography, graphics, etc...
Only thing good was the theme song!LMFAO.
