I’m not a big fan of this Kapamilya after-dinner offering but it actually got me hooked for some days along with my brothers in the seminary. I’m talking about this Underworld-meets-My Sassy Girl-meets-Devil-Wears Prada-meets-Wowowee primetime teleserye by ABS-CBN: Lobo.
Lobo, for the benefit of those who denies knowledge of this TV show, is about the endless battle between the lycanthropic Lobos and the trigger-happy Lunas and their untiring obsession with the Pulang Buwan. The Lunas, the self-proclaimed defenders of the world from the Lobos, went very creative in hunting the these shapeshifters by disguising themselves as military men on a highly confidential mission. The Wayas, the white-furred Lobos, went incognito by passing themselves as trend-setting, rave party loving fashionistas (roll your eyes here). Then there’s the Itim na Lobo who love to hang out in empty warehouses, salivate rabidly and apply thick eye liners. These three groups were battling each other in a highly believable manner though really, what do these soldiers have against fashionistas?
Ths show apparently tried to extend its lifespan (and its claim for sponsorship) as since two weeks ago, the Pulang Buwan has already risen and still, there’s about a week more of episodes coming this July. Huh? But it doesn’t matter. To the seminarians on this part of the world, what’s important is that Lyka (played by the byutipul Angel Locsin) changes into Lobo and into human again and hope there will be substantial camera exposure to go with it. Why is this important? Go figure it out yourself.
