Nowadays, there are plenty of television shows that captures the attention of viewers. Whether it be their plot or the characters, these TV shows surely become popular among the crowd. In fact, a lot of international series are gaining attention among Pinoy viewers. One of which is “The Walking Dead.”
GMA-7 head writer Suzette Doctolero spoke out on the alleged imitation of the new thriller “The Cure” to the international show “The Walking Dead.” On her Facebook account, Suzette replied to the accusers.
“Adaptation, inspirasyon, o kopya? Kumplikadong usapin ito. Marami ang nagmamagaling pero wala naman talagang alam.”
The head writer cited “Alyas Robin Hood” to support her statement. She was the concept creator of the fantaserye.
“Ang Alyas Robin Hood, na binansagan ng ilang syonga na kopya daw sa Arrow, na sa totoo lang ay mula rin naman sa Robinhood (na ikasisira ng ulo ng mga fanboys kasi for them ay orig ang arrowroot). Kung susuriin ang kwento ng Alyas Robin Hood, malayong malayo talaga ito sa Arrow (nireview na ito ng CNN Phils at wala silang nakitang pangongopya).”

Suzette said that many Filipinos commend foreign shows. The problem is they have complaints if the show is local.
“Teka muna, bawal bang gumawa ng zombie series? E kung bawal, paano ang iba pang foreign series at movies na zombie din ang sentro ng mga kwento? Bat di nyo rin tirahin na kopya? Dyan tayo magaling e. Pag dayuhan ang gumawa, todo praise. Pag pinoy, kahit di napanood, mema agad na kopya. (Note: wag mag judge kungdi napanood. Kung gusto mong magsalita against it, panoorin muna.)”
