TV5’s Arrow Promo Jabs at Alyas Robin Hood

The controversy surrounding GMA’s ‘Alyas Robin Hood’ spills into TV5.

Recently, TV5 poked fun on the comparisons between ‘Arrow’ and its perceived copycat ‘Alyas Robin Hood’. With season 3 of the Tagalized ‘Arrow’ set to air next Monday on the said network, they decided to have a good time by posting the following questions on their Facebook page.

The third card on the post above needs no explanation. Still, the desperate need of attention is clear, as TV5 tries to make sense of themselves amid their programming woes.

Going back to the controversy surrounding ‘Arrow’ and ‘Alyas Robin Hood’, it seems like many have moved on from this issue. In fact, since its debut, ‘Alyas Robin Hood’ has been faring well in the national ratings, giving the suddenly slumping ABS-CBN drama ‘Magpahanggang Wakas’ a run for its money.

That said, TV5’s decision to poke fun on the ‘Alyas Robin Hood’ issue came too little too late. For the Kapatid faithful who still had TV5’s back despite their quality in question, this is very disappointing.

As mentioned earlier, ‘Arrow’ season 3 will be aired on TV5 starting next Monday at 7:00 p.m. For those who want to watch the original English dub, there is the current fifth season of ‘Arrow’, which airs every Thursday at 1:00 p.m. on Jack TV, and 8:00 p.m. on 2nd Avenue.

    TV5 throwing shots at Alyas Robin Hood may sound funny but not good at all. But it doesn’t mean I watch that show. It’s still a mere rip off of a good show. Even if wala siyang team, the elements of Arrow is being shown. Speaking of Arrow, they will season 3 and not season 2. Back to back with the premiere season of The Flash.

    • Honestly, I don’t care for either of them. TV5 is really desperate to get attention, and their promotion of Arrow to poke fun on ARH is just one of them. Obviously, I don’t have any trust and respect for the said station, since MVP and the entire management ruined everything.

  2. Dati ARH ang pinagbibintangang nakikisakay sa Arrow, ngayon Arrow na dahil sa TV5. Whoa. Tables turned. Di ba puwedeng anime o local programs na lang imbes na mga over-glorified american series na 90% usap, 10% action/interesting scenes)? Maliban sa Supernatural siyempre. Maganda yun eh

    • I’d rather want TV5 to air Tagalized versions of American cartoons that cater to adults, like The Simpsons or Family Guy. Baka mas maganda pa ‘yun kaysa sa traditional kids’ cartoons, anime or even action series. Saka bagay rin sa primetime.

      And forget about local programming. It’s obvious that TV5 lost a lot of money by producing such programs. Pwede sila as a Tagalized alternative to FOX, Jack TV, CT, ETC, Star World & 2nd Avenue.

      • That is Chot Reyes’ vision the moment he became the head of TV5. He realized that TV5 is no match for ABS and GMA, that’s why he had to turn the said network into a Tagalized version of the Solar and FOX networks on cable. Sad, but true.

        If TV5 wants to tagalized Adult Animated Series, dapat meron din consent ng MTRCB because Free TV nga naman and mas matindi regulations satin kaysa sa FCC at least may cursing na walang censor. Pag pinalabas Simpsons on free tv, baka macensored lahat ng cursing pero yun presidente natin nagmumura on live tv.

      • Well, in the mid-90s, RPN-9 used to air The Simpsons with little regulations. And now with some changes in the dubbing script, it can still be aired Tagalized even in the new age of stricter regulations. Family Guy can also have some changes should it air in Tagalized form.
