Overused Smallville phrases and dialogues

16 12 2009

During the summer of last year, I had nothing worthwhile to do so I decided to watch Smallville on DVD…

On a 1-MONTH marathon! … Guess what, since I was watching it day and night I was able to compile a list of lines or dialogues that I kept hearing over and over and over again. This was from Seasons 1 up to Season 6. It’s not that I think the writers can’t think of anything else, but it’s more of becoming engrossed or immensed in the language itself and how it was used…

Yeah I know, you might be wondering what the hell am I talking about…

Anyway, are you a Smallville fan too? Do you remember any of the phrases and expression below? You are actually encouraged to expand the list…

Go Smallville! …

Overused Smallville phrases or lines:

1. Got your message, it sounded important.

2. I have to call you back

3. I’ll catch you later

4. What do you want?

5. She’s not herself lately

6. I wouldn’t do anything to hurt you…

7. What are you doing?

8. You’re very sick, you need help…

9. Clark has nothing to do with this

10. What’s going on?

11. Look at me in the eye and tell me…

12. You lied to me …

13. Are you ok?

14. Never better

15. Somebody HELP!

16. You can’t blame yourself

17. We all have our secrets

18. I will not give up on him/her

19. Close that chapter in my life

20. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer…

21. Teach you a thing or two…

22. I know we had our differences

23. Let’s put this behind us

24. What’s wrong with you?!

25. There’s more to __(name of person)_ than meets the eye…

26. I thought of all people you would understand…

27. Made a deal with the devil

28. You have he abilities I couldn’t even dream of…

29. For what it’s worth …

30. Don’t get me wrong …

31. You’re my girl/guy

32. I get that a lot …

33. He’s on something

34. Something tells me …

35. Never start a game you can’t win ; never wound what you can not kill

36. If I didn’t know any better I think …

37. Vessel

38. RSVP

39. The crisis is far from over…

Just an observation: Louise Lane, Lex Luthor, Lionel Luthor, Lucy Lane, and Lana Lang? Double “L”s? What’s up with that?!…

Just a thought, you might wonder why I didn’t write any inspiring quote or striking dialogue. Truth is, I was so bombarded with the same old lines over and over again and I just can’t stop remembering all these expressions! With reference to the quotes, fans like me or “other” people have already enlisted what you don’t find here.

You’ll probably be taking down some lines as well if you heard it repeatedly. But hey, Smallville’s one heck of a show and it still blows me away! Except from a few lines here and there…

Smallville fans unite!

Wow Mali returns via TV5!

8 03 2009

 

When you thought Wow Mali’s history…

 

Think again …

 

Because Wow Mali is back on TV! …

 

 

 

 

 

 

I remember this show way back in grade school. It’s like the local version of international TV  shows “Just Kidding” and “Just For Laughs”, hosted by Joey de Leon. I personally don’t like him, but well since I like show and he’s part of it… well, what the heck…

 

Anyway, part of the episode I just watched was shot here in Baguio… and the female accomplice by Wow Mali seemed very familiar…

 

The show’s great till its closing segment. The visuals looked very vivid and crisp. I guess the chroma key-ing of the background , against a dimly-lit set in the previous versions, added to dynamism of Wow Mali… now it looks more lively and fast-paced for some reason…

 

The addition of going around the Philippines to draw unscripted responses from innocent bystanders is impressive compared to just focusing on Manila alone…

 

 It was also great to watch celebrities “Wow-malied”… just like the old days… it’s what always gets me rolling on the floor laughing…

 

If Wow Mali’s crew and heads continue to improve the show, it’s undeniably going to rate high, especially taking into consideration, TV5’s strong holdings on the ratings game nowadays (placing 3rd consistently against ABS-CBN and GMA) …

 

Who knows, since there’s no current show similar to Wow Mali, maybe the rival networks could even be brewing something to topple Wow Mali if ever the latter becomes a threat…

 

“sana lang walang gayahan… tulad ng ‘VICTIM’, kung naaalala niyo po yun… “

 

Shake mo TV mo! …
