FEATURED REVIEW
VIETNAM ROSE

By LJDB

I gave it a good review when it first premiered. But I think I was blinded by the shockingly well done Vietnam War scenes. Since then, the show has just gone downhill. You can’t get invested in the stories, everything seems overly predictable, and the “magical-realism” is getting old.

No wonder its not ratings gold in the Philippines. Rumored only on for 3 more months? I say good riddance.
