Original Materials Like 'Destiny Rose' More Attractive To Viewers Than Remakes Of Old Hit Shows

WE HEARD that GMA-7 has plans to make a remake of "Encantadia". We know it's a big hit before but we still wish that they would rather come up with just a new and fresh material rather than with another revival. After all, the viewers today are different from the viewers then and we've noticed they no longer for costume fantasies.

Also, we've noticed that most of GMA remakes are not as big a hit as the original series, which is what happened with their remakes of "Darna" and "Captain Barbell", which were not as successful as the first versions. But this is just one man's opinion. Of course, they're still entitled to do what they want, just like in "Marimar".

But still, good original materials have better chances of rating well on the air, just like "Destiny Rose", which is getting very high ratings on Afternoon Prime. The transformation of Ken Chan last Friday to become a woman was very well received and truly rated so well. And Ken proved to be such a pretty woman indeed. He looks even better than real life transwomen like Kevin Balot and Trixie Maristela who won beauty titles in international gay pageants in Thailand.
