That would depend on the vision of the writiers pitching it. It isn't as much as about the story being "realistic" as it is about it being believable. Like I said, nakasalalay ito ultimately sa vision ng writer and how he connects that vision to the audience. At the hands of a skilled writer (at mind you, marami ang ABS nun), even the most outlandish idea, such as a love story set against the backdrop of a post-alien invasion Earth, can be made immersive and believable for the audience.

Ibabalik ko sa iyo ang tanong mo, why do fantaseryes click with the audience even though hindi naman nag-eexist ang setting nila (duwendes, engkantos, superpowers, etc. )?

As I said in my previous post/s, dahil nandun parin yung core plot na common sa lahat ng shows (love/family). Sibling rivalry pero may magic involved, paghihiganti pero may superpowers and so on. Iba lang yung angle na tinitignan.

May areas pa na believable ang setting ang hindi pa fino-focus or tinatackle so dun muna. Wag muna lumayo. Maybe sa movies pwede yang sci-fi/fantasy genre kasi pwedeng paghandaan (script, effects).

One believable/reality na pwedeng gawin ng concept is on social media. Maraming issues dyan: madaling gawin, hindi magastos, at relatable pa. Career-driven teleseryes na kahit ang kabila na most innovative network daw ay hindi or wala pang concept.

Actually, mas gusto ko weekly format for teleseryes, regardless of genre, period. At least, the writers themselves will have time to plot and write their stories. Hindi katulad yung current setup natin wherein sinusulat yung script habang shinushoot, tapos airing na mamayang gabi.

A good intention for the writers. But for the viewers, medyo hassle sa kanila. Iba yung viewers natin kesa sa ibang mauunlad na bansa. We rely more on TV as entertainment unlike sa first world countries na maraming technologies. Mapapagod ang masa viewers sa paghihintay ng next episodes kasi may one week waiting period, impatient pa naman yung karamihan.

Medyo magastos din pag weekly series, since iba yung scheme nung ad rates natin dito so madadamay yung pagpapalabas ng ads. Kaya nga may product placement sa mga weekly series like for example korean dramas kasi dun sila kumikita. Nagkaka-problema na rin yung korean broadcasting companies dahil magastos nga daw yung production para sa series nila.

Nasabi ko na ito sa ibang thread dito, pero ang pwede nilang gawin to improve production is to avoid extensions. Gawing fix yung run ng isang series.

Anyways writers can think of a concept na pasok sa panlasa ng viewers at the same time iba yung atake. They just need to find a different angle (Tadashi Hamada, Big Hero 6). ;)

Actually, it's not uncommon kahit sa US and other countries that shows get extensions, as long as the show rates well. Though, unlike sa atin, sa kanila kasi e canned na yung series, meaning lahat ng episodes for a particular season e nai0shoot na and are already in post-production by the time na i-ere siya. Extensions come in only after the season ends and the network goes "okay to a, nagrate" and orders more episodes. Kaya nga usually me one or twi-season gap sa pagitan ng first season ng isang show at yung extension niya, since yung gap yung production time para sa extension.

ABS did experiment sa canned shows dati. Vietnam Rose, IIRC canned na when it aired. Half of Rounin was also already canned, kaya they had a lot of time working on the VFX. Kaso sa tingin ko e sa ngayon takot ang mga local network bosses na sumugal sa pagsushoot ng isang buong season without the assurance that it would actually rate.

Going back sa ideas, gusto kong makakita ng series akin to Big Bang Theory na ang humor is more on the intellectual side.
