Ghost

Current soundtrack: "Bye-Bye" - Mariah Carey. One of the better tunes from E=MC2. Bertepatan dengan current mood.


Just finished the marathon of Ghost last night, courtesy of 8TV.com.my. Wow what a solid production. I watched the first episode sometime ago but thought it's too pretentious and filled with too much current radio hits for background music. But as the series progressed, it's addictive. I should say this is the product I'll never embarrassed to show outsiders as a true Malaysian TV series (with Gol & Gincu : The Series and Sadiq & Co). The cast were good (I'm surprised by Naz), the camerawork is outstanding for Malaysian standard, all the sets are believably decorated (I suspect Eza's apartment is done in a studio). And I'm proud to see the "sebelum ini dalam Ghost" and "akan datang" clips at the beginning and end of each episode. Finally we have some effort to produce a decent montages like those US series.

There's some debate ongoing about the series "un-religious" approach. You know, how the main character (Naz) is portrayed as a constant womanizer and drinker. And dead people are supposed to have their "afterlife" session after they die, and not returning to ground and solve their murder mystery a-la Hollywood. But, I should say, you don't watch this for religious teachings. The series is intended not only for Malays, but other races as well (and yes, Ghost is one of top rated series in 8TV), so you don't want to draw them off with all that balasan kubur stuff. We already have enough of that in Cerekarama, RTM and Astro Ria. And tell me, did your aqidah felt menyimpang after watching this? Suddenly feel like consuming alcohol? Besides, it is clearly shown in the story that drinking will drive you to do stupid things. And even regular drama has characters such as alcoholic-womanizer-abusive father, for example. Takde orang komplen plak. So my word to them, chill out.
