Ramadan TV series for 2006

October 1st, 2006


Big productions, huge budgets, more action and extensive visual effects… BUT, poor scripts, pathetic acting and bad choice of actors. It seems that producers and directors do not care anymore about sense of drama anymore. Now they focus more on visual impacts and WOW effect. But I think the main reason behind this weakness is that most of TV drama directors do not have sense of acting, and they want to finish the series before Ramdan so there is no time for good acting.

I also noticed that most of series includes a multinational cast and production team… I think this phenomenon is positive and could enrich Arabic drama by exchanging experiences. And at the end it could lead to a strong drama production and powerful media.

I am not a regular viewer, nor a drama critic… So I don’t have much to say about TV series for this year. I just wanted to explain a clear opinion of what I saw during my weekend journey on Arabic TV satellite channels.

    you are not bad as a critic!!

    Despite of all the mistakes happens with acting and stuff, we have at least a new generation of drama people who starts thinking out of the Egyptian-Box and the boor quality at all levels.. i felt so happy last ramadan.. it was better than this year.. i like the one national (not multinational) works.. so you see jordanian, syrian, saudi, palestinian, lebanese and moroccan staff working together under one category: Arabian Drama.

    wael: from where you get those still photos?

    This is true, the majority of these shows are crap, some are Ok, the only two i watch is دعاة على ابوب جهنم and باب الحارة which i found are the only acceptable ones to watch.
