"Quick! Let's make a super-heroine series before the enemy start their own!"

... And that's exactly what the executives of the parent network said when they realized they lost the rights to the country's most popular comic book character. They immediately began working on a super-heroine series immediately before their rival network even began filming the original. Afterwards, the network claims they started the superhero series fad on TV. Shallow, huh?

'Krystala' is, a poor clone of the 'Darna' storyline: poor girl discovers superpowers and helps mankind, sacrificing life and family in the process. The network's superstar Judy Ann Santos stars as Krystala/Tala (Darna/Narda?), the fully-clothed super-heroine with amazing powers. Senior actors include Cherie Gil as one of the enemies that resemble Darna's arch enemy Valentina. Later in the series, a mysterious hooded dark lord (who is a dead-ringer for Star Wars' Emperor Palpatine) appears as the main enemy of Krystala.

And the shallowness ends there. The storyline is decent enough; think peter parker's dilemmas in the 'Spider-Man' movies where the hero/heroine struggles to balance real life and hero life. Again, audiences have seen this scene before... in various superhero movies. The only thing good that ever came out of 'Krystala' is that it became a sort of 'pre-programming appetizer' of Darna.

Audiences, i included, can only say, "Thanks for warming us up, Krystala! Now move your huge butt out of here and we're ready for Darna, the real super-heroine!"

I can hardly wait for Darna to finally come out.
