PlayBack: Tayuan Mo! At Panindigan

05/16/2011 | 04:44 p.m.

When you were a kid during the previous three decades, you may have noticed that in some TV channels, talk shows are their specialty. The content simply comprised of commentary, information, and spiels. Just pure talk.

Perhaps, at present era where soap operas eventually became the icons of primetime television, there are few programs that still stand for the type of the old style. And one of them turned out to be my favorite in Tayuan Mo! At Panindigan.

It all started when Aksyon TV, a news and public affairs (and sports) channel owned and operated by Associated Broadcasting Company (ABC, who also owns TV5) was also launched.

The date was 21 February 2011. Tayuan Mo at Panindigan, aired after Dong Puno's hard-hitting Kalibre 41, was hosted by Joey Reyes, Lourd De Veyra and Aida Sy, with Carlos Celdran as its' segment honcho.

Reyes, a director and writer by profession, was one of the most-recognized talent judges in Talentadong Pinoy,  as well as for being a television personality and critic.

Joining him were De Veyra, a writer, television personality, and also a musician; serving as the front man of the band Radioactive Sago Project; and Sy, a businesswoman, serving also as radio host with at Radyo5 92.3 News FM. Celdran was a tourist guide whose also a RH Bill advocate to the extent that he was facing charges by the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines.

The program usual dwells on the matters related to the unusual and common problems of society. They also invited some personalities whom were featured guests for such issue involved aired on the episode though there are some instances that they will talk about headlines or news that happened the previous week by every Monday of the week.

They were broadcasting for Mondays to Fridays, 10 pm (later moved to 10:15pm) and their episodes ran for  approximately 45-60 minutes.

Okay, (and kailangan ko talagang Tayuan at Panindigan ito): Apparently, this talkie can cater to anyone barely interested to watch such programs with the format an unbarred discussion. It's like as if like you were just having a normal chit-chat along with your friends or barkada.

Every scene of them appeared to be just done spontaneously. Almost no tape cuts, just pure straight discussion as if (for another comparison) you’re just listening to those talk shows on radio.

They are like the more casual type, but at least with lots of sense, information and a bit of humor. These three hosts got a very good chemistry that makes their viewers tuned in for them.

Though there are bad sides that the show had and have happened in between (specifically, technical difficulties). Some people may have find them wrong, but given their existence, this program still have some room to improve.

Plus there are instances where one of them should know the ropes of doing a good interview. Give them time if you think medyo sablay sila, though.

Another downside: Tayuan Mo At Panindigan was unexpectedly cut to pre-empt three times within its five airing days between May 3-9, 2011. However, the TMAP aired replays of (though by random choice of episode) during Saturday nights (if I’m not mistaken, 9:30-10:30pm).

So, this is my final verdict. This show is a great one. For the crew of TMP and Aksyon TV, keep it up. This had captured my interest in watching TV again.

Verdict: 9.5/10

Update 1: After more than 6 months of airing the show had launch a new format and hosts of the show. Gone are the three main guys except for Aida Sy and Cai Cortez, as Danton Remoto and Jojo Alejar entered to do hosting chores. 

Since May, Joey Reyes had left the show and a month later, de Veyra also went out of the frame. 

Temporarily, Shawn Yao, Giselle Sanchez, Issa Litton and Alejar did the hosting chores for this one and Cortez had been replacing Celdran's spot since he left. | updated: 10/08/2011

Update 2: TMAP has ditched their nightly airing basis into weekly before the turn of the year. Also, Aljear left the show, giving only Sy and Remoto the main anchoring chores. Since moving onto Tuesday evenings (at 8:35-9:25 PM timeslot), TMAP has been trying to put up a package-content talk show with their Headlines segment on the program's very first part. 

Sy was reportedly axed from Punto Asintado, making TMAP as her only program in the network. But in August 2012, Tayuan Mo! At Panindigan formally bade goodbye at the airwaves:. | Updated: 4/25/2014 4:08:15 PM
