    Wah, then all the TODAY paplets will disappear faster than you can say 'AOTC postcards'.

    They won't show anything that we don't know.

    The TV in Singapore sucks.

    Channel 5 will be premiering Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace on 12 May, 6:30PM in Singapore.

    Don't miss the BLOCKBUSTER OF THE YEAR!

    Sunday 6:30pm? ARE THEY MAD?

    But at least we can intersperse all those tedious Jar^2 Binks scenes with trips to the fridge... ;)

    It's insane. It's probably the worse time that they could choose! 6.30? Even Braveheart didn't start that early!

    Will see how many cuts TCS will do. Can't believed what they did to ESB. :(

    Heehee, I just lost count how many times Cable Star Movies had shown TPM ever since they launched it last year!

    My friends, it's not the premiere of Phantom Menace on Singapore TV that I'm excited about.

    It's the specials and commercials that will accompany the premiere.

    Being the official Media of AOTC, there will be lot's of Making Ofs and Interviews, not to mention the much awaited "ACROSS THE STARS" MTV premiering in USA next week!

    It'll be a STAR WARS month in May 02. Even SPIDERMAN has been eclisped by Attack Of The Clones!

    *Sigh*
    Media-Corpp(it's pronounced like dat wat) was also the *Official* TV station for so many other programes, specials and such... what difference does it make?
    There are like what two(2) networks anyway, and TV Works can't even broadcast properly... heck, what was the choice again?

    Anyway, Media-Corpp wouldn't know an exclusive if it run up and bite them in the butt. Media-Corpp is all about hype, official media, official that, official this, Home Of The Stars, whatever.

    Prove me wrong Media-Corpp, make me look stupid, I dare you...

    I hope someone here works for Media-Corpp... I mean, if they wanted any information on Star Wars anything, you'd think that they'd send somebody in here do do some 'research', I mean, TF.N is one of the biggest Star Wars resources in the world... but maybe they didn't know that. Ignorant fools.

    Hard to say these Media Corp is . . .

    Guess it depend on which department or company doing what. I been happy with some stuffs but very furious over others. And some of the mass media can go to the WRONG link to get info for certain stuffs.

    And it seems with the coming of AOTC, I've seen NO mass media rep coming to any of the known sources for local SW Fanforce. Maybe they don't know about us, maybe they are too lazy to go hunting.

    Guess we have to wait and see . . .

    I think that: Although Media-Corp may be the all-encompassing media station in Singapore, it still hasn't yet established a rep and image that a well-developed and mature media company should have.

    The movies shown on TV are mostly relative unknowns..it's really been left wanting. Perhaps it's my high expectations as to what a good broadcasting firm should be. [face_plain]

    I do like MediaCorp's radio though..especially Class 95 and Passion 99.5 (dunno if it belongs to MediaCorp).

    Anyway, back to AOTC..I've never really seen any impressive marketing and promoting scheme which MediaCorp has employed on any of its projects. I think for TPM it was just KFC, PizzaHut etc doing their own individual ads on TV.

    No, course I'm not..

    I'm not saying I know everything, I'm only extacting thoughts which are based on what I know, which may or may not be substantial enough to anaylse the situation accurately.

    Media Corp will "promote" a 1998 movie as some exciting "premier". Like they did for "The Prince of Egypt". The Prince of Egypt is a good movie and I don't mind watch it again but promote it for three weeks? come on.

    And did anyone watch "The Rock" last night? what a piece of junk and they treat it like some real blockbuster.

    Premier Episode I in Singapore at a funny timing huh? who cares?

    I feel very very sick of Media Corp, both Channel 8 and 5, especially Channel 8. They simply treat the audience like idiot. Sometime when they say or do something really really stupid I almost want to throw my TV out of the window. But I stay at 20th floor, can't do that. :(

    Don't expect too much from Channel 5, they will show same thing again and again. I bet you they won't show anything that we can't find on Net.

    'aight!

    However, I must say... The Rock is a good show! Seriously, I like it very much and must say that I think that it's one of the classics of our time. It was a blockbuster a few years back anyway.

    Back to Media Corpp bashing... :p

    Haha I think The Rock was not bad...but i've watched it before on channel 5, so no kick.

    I think all of us can expect MC to just get better and better over the years..into a world renowned broadcaster (maybe)~ :D

    DD - I still a student..not working or anything

    From 8 Days No. 602

    Heehee, I should had post TCS 5, right? :p
    If SCV, it should be Ch2. ;)

    Frankly even with the main TV tuned to SCV, I always tune the rest of the house TVs by the usual way;
    TCS5=>Ch5,
    TCS8=>Ch8
    Kids Central=> Ch4
    Suria=>Ch6
    RTM1=>Ch1
    etc etc

    There will probably be more SW documentary next week.

    TV? What TV? *looks around*...

    But seriously, what amuses me to no end is how MediaCorps (or SBC as I still like to call it) tries to brand itself as the number one TV&Radio'caster in the country by brandishing various figures and statistics to the unwary listener. Especially that "Advertisement on radio increased by x%" advert. Hilarious when you consider the facts of the day and what was happening to the rest of the industry.

    Still, if it is AOTC, I'm not going to complain...
