Revisiting the Fever

Thalia is one of the few celebrities that captivated the hearts of the Filipinos. Not so long before, her name wasn’t that heard until RPN-9 (a local television channel) aired Marimar and the rest was history. As far as my memory is concerned, that triggered the big networks to follow suit by creating their own telenovelas/teleserye (novels/series on TV) and for ABS-CBN airing 2 more of Thalia’s soaps – Maria Mercedes and Rosalinda.

And coming from a house who can’t tolerate nor accept the bastardization of a local TV network on TV classics (such as Shaider and Marimar), I have decided to have the household a copy of two of the previous “Thalia fever” series: Mari Mar and Rosalinda.

Rosalinda

Marimar has 3 DVDs, two of which are double sided (I am not sure if a side is single or double layered) and Rosalinda has 2 double sided DVDs. The Marimar copy that I have is the one that was recently launched last 12 February 2008 from Amazon and contains English subtitle. I am not quite sure if the initial release didn’t have English subtitles but as for the quality of the content, it isn’t as clear as expected from a traditional Region 1 DVD. Perhaps the series being cramped into fewer discs, that might have affected the quality of the show. Nonetheless, these DVDs are really a collector’s edition.

No que no? 😛

    My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being ripped off? I’d certainly appreciate it.
