RE: Postscript – Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo (Teleserye)


I write in connection with the recently concluded teleserye, Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo which has been another success for ABS CBN. I am indeed concerned, though, with the teleserye’s plot and presentation, more so because the story revolves around the family.

These are some of my concerns – the countless brutal killings, the merciless and sickening kidney operations, the suicide of the Supremo with no remorse whatsoever for all his misdoings, Ringo’s suicidal tendencies and corrupt ambitions, Robbie’s anger and hunger for revenge at all costs.

On the other hand, there were good points – Mama Pet’s perseverance to save her apo, Gwen’s self sacrifice which left her no choice due to the threat on her mother’s life.

Overall, the characters played their respective roles very well, there is no doubt that they can act. But perhaps for future teleseryes, the producers can emphasize more the positive values of life – such as healthy habits for character building, matters related to and for intellectual development, love and respect for our country; and lessen the negatives – anger, envy, greed (the capital sins), revenge, brutalities.

Thank you and we look forward to more substantive teleseryes from you, one that depicts and speaks of your being Kapamilya.
