When Tomato-Man Asks, "Where Is Joe Jambul?"

Favourite television programmes; I'm sure we have, at least one each. Whenever we watch a TV programme, we tend to think of whether or not it suits us. If it does, we'll watch it again, and then it becomes our favourite show. If it doesn't, well, obviously it won't become a favourite.

Little do we know, that when we grow up, we become demanding. We judge everything. Including TV shows. Every angle of it we observe, trying to find some sorts of satisfaction; it's either because of its perfection, or its flaws. It's not wrong. It's far from wrong.

My question is, do you still remember the shows that you used to love when you were a lot younger than you are now? If you do, do you still remember the content of those shows, or at least the reason why you loved them?

I used to love a game show called 'Di Mana Joe Jambul?' (Where Is Joe Jambul?). I loved it because it was a detective-like game show and I loved to see those participants failing the missions. Hee.

Then I also loved a cartoon series called 'Tomato-Man and the Knights of the Salad Table'. I enjoyed seeing his (Tomato-Man) determination to do the right things even though he was not so bright, and quite shy.

Well my point is, I didn't think much of their so called pros and cons. I just loved them the way they were. I didn't think much. But now, perhaps it's due to the community's demands or something, I'm not sure, people tend to think too much of a programme or show. This positivity, and that negativity, allow this and ban that, blah blah blah. Just watch it and shut your damn mouth, will you? You wanna have you say? Share it with your friends, discuss it, talk about it, but don't go around and attack people.

p/s: And one more thing, is there any good game show, ORIGINAL and GOOD game show out there in this country? All that I can see are those stupid game shows or those inspired from the foreign ones. Where is originality? Where is creativity? I'm damned bored, so bring me something! Oh, here is the magic word; 'Please'.

that's so true la.. Malaysian game shows are boring and serves no purpose.. I happen to watch Kelab Pop for 10 minutes and it bugged the hell out of me.. so stupid la.. aiyohh..the only Malaysian show I watch sometimes is Tomtombak, coz the kids are cute and innocent, and funny too..

but when they have the kids performing, I always look at it in disgust.. the girls with 10inches of make-up, dancing or singing, some wearing scantily clad clothes.. Malaysian mentality, so engrossed with entertainment that they manipulate children.. it sickens me..

on a lighter note, I can't remember any favorite TV shows back in the days, except for Barney and Friends.. hehehe..

Mine would have to be Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.
I used to get my parents to buy tonnes of Power Rangers video tapes and play them over and over on the VCR that we had.

But now, when I watch them over, I found that the acting was bad, the story lines left much to be desired, and it turned out to be a disappointing viewing experience.

Why didn't we think of all these small things when we were smaller? Why were we able to accept all those flaws and enjoy the damn power rangers shows? Maybe because we weren't critical of those things yet. Now that we have learned to scrutinize almost everything, we use the knowledge to good effect.

But I miss the innocence of my childhood. :(

1. Dulu membesar dengan lambakan superheroes; Flashman, Maskman, Ultraman, Power Rangers, Gaban, Suria Baja Hitam, etc2. The only insight I grasped was "power is justice".

2. Spongebob. I was surprised when my 6 year old brother commented:

"Patrick tu tak pandai tapi dia kawan yang setia kat Spongebob"

Kalau ikut huraian KOMSAS, nilai murni yang berjaya diterapkan ialah Persahabatan.

Good job Encik Spongebob Celana Segi Empat.
