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.
