I commend QTV 11 (Philippines’ local channel) for airing Super Rookie every Saturday and Sunday because it’s a good series. I like Eric Mun‘s portrayal here as Kang Ho, who have been hired in the Best company in Korea due to computer error. It’s funny and inspiring for those who are not really good in their current jobs. As I said in my previous posts on SK, it pictures corporations as a jungle.
QTV, however, aired Super Rookie with a lot cut scenes that the story seemed to be different if you watched the whole episodes in a DVD. Sadly, Filipino viewers miss a lot of good scenes, where they can wholly understand and appreciate the characters of the story. Those scenes are needed for character building. I hate them for cutting those scenes.
Last April 21, I and my relatives went to Baguio for a vacation. Since I can’t live a day without visiting my blog I went to a computer shop. My cousins were there earlier than me, which I did not notice. I just have known when they saw Super Rookie’s picture on my blog, which on that time I was previewing. They asked, “Ate, nanunuod ka rin niyan?” ["Ate, you are also watching that?"ATE is a term used for calling older sister] I answered yes.
I understand that QTV has to do it because one episode of Super Rookie, originally, is an hour more or less. But QTV alloted 1 hour every saturday and sunday for viewers to watch the Super Rookie, so there is really no spare time for commercials. I watched last April 22, 1PM, and noticed that they almost cut a continuous 15-minute scenes.
Super Rookie has a great story, great character build-up, that is why I pity QTV viewers.
