Brothel Saga Continues

September 28, 2006

Continuation of my previous post.

Yesterday on Sirasa News First, new issues were highlighted, showing a row at the “Kaduwela Pradeshiya Sabha” meetings regarding this issue and an angry UNP Paliamentarian speaking at Parliament as to why they dont disclose the identity of the politician in concern, and say “Majour Political Party”. He was pissed coz when you say Majour Political Party there are only 2. SLFP and the UNP.

Anyway, people who can lip read sinhala could hear him say “Somawansa Amerasinghege Nangi (Younger Sister)”.

With all this happening one of my friends couldn’t help but comment on the Women Arrested. Saying “Fit Badu”. 🙂

Anyways I think Sirasa news is the program to watch. It’s soo freaking Hilarious. It’s like the Sri Lankan version of “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewert. (If you watch it with a applicable sense of humour).

    Actually, Sirasa do have their own copy of “The Daily Show” (I can’t recall the name. Ah! Andamanda Doopatha or something), and as you said, their real news is funnier than that!

    Now people say Sirasa is innovative.

    American Idol – Sirasa Superstar ( I like that program anyways)
    The Daily Show – Andamanda Doopatha
    Candid Camera – Hina Ina
    Give us a clue – Sawanata Wadanak
    Good Morning America – Good Morning Sri Lanka (That’s bit different in content though)
    And all those crappy Indian copies.

    What more?

    And actually, the initial logo and animation of MTV (When they first launched in 90’s) was a “Gedi pitin copy” of Channel 9 in Australia !!! (After all MTV is a copycat brand of MusicTV !!!!!!)

    Anyways, their selection of original English programs (on CH1 MTV) are very good compared to many others. I love 24, Two and a half men, 8 Simple Rules and West Wing. (Credit should be given when it’s due)

    But what I hate about MBC is their BOASTING. The mantra of “we are the best, we are the #1, we are the innovators” all the day. It’s good to say all those to them selves, to get the employee motivation going on. But, who want to listen to that out here in the audience!!!!

    Even ‘Api nodanna Live’ some time back – that was a copy of Indian show too with ‘Podi Malli and Loku Malli’
