Under-promoted shows Little Nanay & Because of You are actually Worth Watching

Funny how GMA Network's less promoted, less talked about prior to pilot episodes, and less hyped shows turn out to be the best soap operas for this year's lineup. We're talking about Little Nanay and Because of You.

Little Nanay, a realistic light but very heartwarming drama.

Pairing Bembol Roco & Superstar Nora Aunor as grannie couple is a perfect one. Their characters don't demand too much but their depth make it appear so realistic. Thanks to them, Kris Bernal gets surrounded with good acting atmosphere. Because of that, she pulls off her role as Tinay beyond expectation.

To date, this is Kris Bernal's most important role in her showbiz career. We sure hope she gets recognized for this one. If not through awards, at least through longer run of this show and sustainable and even surpassing ratings.

The supporting cast is but perfect for this show. This is like One True Love in terms of casting ensemble yet also less hyped.

If you want a show that would again touch your heart for real life situations aside from romance, watch this one! It actually is the most sensible soap opera on TV this season. No joke.

Because of You is one material perfect for Gabby Concepcion. It reminds us of Sir Chief in Be Careful with My Heart but with another flavor. He gives the role so much justice. It tells the networks that he can pull off a TV show.

But more than being a material for Gabby, this is the perfect material for Carla Abellana. She is perfect for romcom and this one is the best so far! Thanks to the writers who gave her another character different from the other shows she's done.

The direction of Mark Reyes is fit for the light and sometimes funny concept.

Watch an episode of this one and you'll find yourself quickly liking the character of Carla along with her friends played by Iya Villania-Arellano and Vaness del Moral.

If you want something funny yet still about love and not overdone, watch this primetime series. If only GMA Network can move it to an earlier timeslot as soon as Marimar ends, this would have been watched by a lot more viewers. It's easy to love.

So we have a question: what's up with GMA Drama? Why do they promote the wrong ones but lack promotional plans for the best ones like these two?


  1. I have the same question on my mind.Little Nanay hasn't been in showbiz balita, not even once compared to Because of You
    which has been in showbiz balita 3 times. Thank God fot the overwhelming
    success of LN despite of this.

  2. I have a feeling na si Gabby ung sinasabi nilang tumangi sa role ni sir chief dati.. Pang hapon lang kasi yung timeslot nun.. di natin masabi bakit sya tumanggi.. Pero imagine kung sya ang gumanap nun.. sure na mas effective at mas gwapo sya sa late bloomer na si RY :) Gabby since the beginning bata pa lang pang hearthrob na hangng ngaun golden na pang hearthrob parin.. bagay na bagay...

  3. My mom and 9-year old niece are "addicted" to this show. And out of curiosity, I watched an episode and from that on, I got hooked. The show's light yet 'relatable' story have pulled me. Now, it's part of my evening 'staple'. Happy lang!
