Mara Clara: the longest teleserye on Philippine television
Who could’ve ever forgotten the long-playing telenovela that made judy ann santos a household name? Mara Clara was one drama series that made the 90s, THE 90s. It was well watched because it was realistic -because of the time frame of the story, or as we liked to call it, “pacing ng istorya”.
Although the story, was just like any other teleserye we see these days, has a one in a million chance ever likely to happen, it was able to capture the filipinos because of our love for the rags to riches story.
The show gave names to a lot of the artistas we see today, such as Gladys Reyes and her husband (forgot his name though..), and who could forget the ka-loveteam of juday, Wowie. Hahaha. Can you guys remember the cast? There was even movie of this teleserye (shorter version, of course).
