Here’s what you need to know before you dive right back into Siren Season 2!

After a brief mid-season break, Siren is back to enthral viewers with its dark retelling of everything that can possibly occur when the world of humans and mermaids get entwined. If the details are a blur, here are a few refreshers to get you up to speed now that it’s back with fresh episodes airing every Sunday, 7:55pm only on Blue Ant Entertainment.

**Note: SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t watched Siren yet!**

1.    Bristol Cove founder, Charles H Pownall, fell in love with a mermaid, with disastrous results.

Legends has it that the mermaid Charles Pownall fell in love with returned to the sea and left him heartbroken. However, the real story reveals that they had a child whom he tried to kill and subsequently hunted down and killed all the mermaids he could find, driving survivors deep into the sea, never to return.

2.    In Season 1, newcomer Ryn is revealed to be a mermaid, seeking her captured sister Donna.

Stumbling around town, Ryn befriends marine biologist Ben who is a descendent of Pownall. Together with his girlfriend Maddie, they try to keep Ryn’s true nature a secret.

3.    Meanwhile, Donna is experimented on, leaving her bitter and vengeful against humans.

Ensnared by the fishing nets of the North Star, Donna is taken by the military who has been secretly tracking the mermaids.

4.    Ryn is forced to take a stand against her own kin, but Donna wants to fight humans and bring Ryn home.

Ryn believes her people need the humans to survive, while Donna brands her a traitor for siding with the humans. This is a common theme throughout the series, with Ryn forming a bridge between her world and the humans. The repercussions are manifold – unknown to Donna, her people view Ryn’s friendship with humans as a danger to their kind and don’t want to bring her home at all. This leads to a huge confrontation, with Ryn commanding her kin to return to the sea without harming any more humans.  In the conflict, Xander, whose father was killed by a merman, accidentally shoots Donna in grief.

5.    The town’s dark history is revealed by local historian Helen, along with the secret of her lineage.

Apparently, Pownall’s human-mermaid hybrid child survived and her descendants have lived in Bristol Cove ever since; Unbeknownst to many, Helen could be the last surviving descendant.

6.    Siren Season 2 brings a new mystery which drove mermaids and mermen out of the water.

Season 1 ends with Ryn returning to the sea, wearing a tracker so Ben and Maddie will be able to find her. When the tracker signal is found on land and several merfolk show up unexpectedly, Ben, Maddie and Helen are forced to protect the identity of not one, but a whole pack of merfolk from the townspeople. The longer these creatures stay out of the sea, the more they weaken.

7.    Alliances are formed but where will the lines be drawn?

Ben’s friend Xander, whose father was killed by one of the mermaids, discovers that the one responsible for the death of his father is hiding with Ryn and the others. Another mermaid-in-hiding, Katrina, resents and challenges Ryn’s leadership in a furious underwater battle, mermaid-to-mermaid.

8.    New and old threats surface

It’s revealed that an oil company, Klesco Oil, is using a sonic cannon, which is what’s preventing the merfolk from returning to the sea. In addition, their construction of a new oil drill threatens the merfolk further so a daring plan is hatched to destroy their oil drill and drive them away. Unfortunately, things did not go as planned and the North Star ended up in flames, leading to an investigation that dredges up things best left buried.

Wondering what happens next? Where will Ryn and the rest of the pack end up? What happens after the accident involving the North Star? Tune in to the return of Siren season 2 and find out! Block your Sunday nights for the concluding episodes of Siren S2, airing express from the US, every Sunday at 7:55pm only on Blue Ant Entertainment available on SKYcable channel 53 (SD) and 196 (HD), SKYdirect channel 35, CableLink channel 37, and Cignal channel 120. 06/22/2019 (TV Series Craze)

Two petrolheads, one limestone massif and a race against the clock for bragging rights - plus a spot in the Guinness World Records™.

Record Rides comes to South East Asia and Hong Kong on National Geographic in a two-part series airing on June 23 and June 30 2019, at 8.00 PM (Philippines time).  The automotive reality entertainment series pits adrenaline junkie and radio DJ, KC Montero, against race car driver Natasha Chang, also known as Chiney Dolly. 

The gambit is simple: KC and Natasha aim to write their names into the record books as the fastest ascent of Doi Chang mountain by car. The catch: there will be no rocket ships or supercars: KC and Natasha will need to prove their ingenuity in sourcing and souping up their own speedsters for the showdown on an impossible timeline. Whether or not they end up with their name in the record books, the pair will be breaking new ground - there is no such existing record, and indeed, no similar effort made in an everyday car.

Chiang Mai is the historical capital of the old Lanna Kingdom: home to misty mountains, colourful hill tribes and picture-postcard ancient Thai temples framed by blue skies and lush greenery.

Doi Chang mountain in this Thai province is the location of the showdown. It will bear witness to feats of ingenuity, of power, control, and of speed, as KC and Natasha hurtle up the slopes in a battle to carve their names in the record books as the fastest ascent of Doi Chang mountain by car.

KC is a car nut with a need for speed and Natasha is no slouch in the driver’s seat either, bringing her racing experience to the table, but neither will attempt the record ride alone. They will get local help on their quest for the Guinness World Records™ attempt from Phat aka ‘Golf’, an expert of the Chiang Mai racing scene, and his motorhead crew at Phat Garage - plus a boost from Caltex with Techron® fuel as they race up the mountain and into the record books.

“National Geographic has always believed in adventure, exploration and pushing boundaries. With Record Rides, we are pleased to be a part of this attempt at a new world record. Coupled with the natural beauty of Chiang Mai, Record Rides is definitely a spectacle that is exciting and entertaining, all at once,” says Con Apostolopoulos, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific & Middle East, National Geographic Partners.

“As a leading visual storyteller, National Geographic’s programming pillars of exploration, education and science resonate well with the Caltex brand. Hence, we are proud to partner with the channel to create Record Rides for our viewers and motorists in Asia,” says Brian Fisher, Caltex Brand Manager. “This show will demonstrate how Caltex with Techron® fuels can power an engine towards achieving an extraordinary journey.”

Record Rides premieres in South East Asia and Hong Kong on National Geographic (Skycable Ch. 41 / Cignal Ch. 141 / Cable Link Ch. 62 / GSAT Ch. 55) on June 23, 2019 at 8.00 PM (Philippines time), with its concluding episode airing on June 30, 2019 at 8.00 PM (Philippines time).

Now on its 33rd year, the longest-running comedy variety show in the Philippines is set for its funniest, most endearing, and most memorable installment yet! Taking place on June, 21, 22, and 23 of 2019, Live AIDS: G na G sa 33 is sure to give every audience member their time’s worth within the first couple of acts alone!

Live AIDS (Ang Istoryang Dinebelop ng SAMASKOM ) or Acts, Improvisations, Dances and Songs, is an annual musical-comedy series mounted by UP SAMASKOM. What started as a mere applicants’ batch project back in 1983 has grown into one of the most awaited events in the entire Diliman community. With each successive installment, the team behind Live AIDS continues to step up its game, and raise the bar both in terms of audience size, and on how sharp and relatable, yet satirical and enjoyable Philippine comedy can be.

However, more than just comedy, Live AIDS is an analysis, exposure, and creative satirization of the modern socio-political sphere we live in as well as the pop culture that has become so ingrained in our lives. Essentially, it parodies the experiences of modern-day Filipinos in our diverse society. Run by a company comprised of both young, talented students and experienced professionals, Live AIDS boldly tackles the present, trending, and viral. It portrays on stage social realities mixed with comedy, spectacle, and entertainment that everyone is certain to enjoy!

As a result of its unique and unbridled brand of showmanship, Live AIDS has continually garnered fanatics and avid viewers who have regularly flocked to the show over the course of three decades of production. These include big names such as Vice Ganda, Bianca Gonzales, Ricky Lee, Lani Misalucha, Icy Mendoza, John Lapus, Rajo Laurel, BJ Pascual, and Tim Yap.

Here is KaladKaren's intro speech during the presscon:

And here is the live Q & A with the bloggers present during the event:

And yes, we got a taste of a live performance by three of the gorgeous members. Watch them dancing below:

Live AIDS remains a popular avenue for individuals from all across the university to hone their talents, celebrate their diversity, and showcase their creativity through the gift of self-expression. Its staying power can be attributed to the teamwork of the residents and alumni of UP SAMASKOM. The bonds that are built within the “samahan” and the trust that is fostered among the members do not only keep the show alive, but allow it to kickstart the careers of comedy stars like Giselle Sanchez, Ate Glow, Michelle O’ Bombshell, Tuesday Vargas and KaladKaren Davila to name a few.

The 33rd edition of Live AIDS will be quarterbacked by Director Deo Divinagracia. A bona fide veteran of the show both in terms of performance and production. He looks to incorporate both classic and modern methods of direction, stage production, and writing in order to create an even bigger explosion of social commentary and parody combined.

Mounting this show yearly comes at the cost of blood, sweat, and tears from the members. Director Divinagracia stated that, “The biggest challenge in directing and staging a LIVE AIDS production is staying relevant and meaningful while delivering the laughs that our loyal viewers are always expecting. Logistically, gathering students and alumni who have different priorities, interests, sensibilities, and schedules is also a huge challenge for a director.”

Meanwhile, let's check some of the event photos during last year's Live at 32 actual play:

This 2019 installment of Live AIDS is filled top to bottom with satire based on trending topics and viral content kept very relatable all throughout. It is both a sharp commentary, and just an all- around good time for anyone who watches. LIVE AIDS: G na G sa 33 is sure to leave a mark on both the show’s devoted fans and on first-time viewers all the same.

Promising to be nothing less than the most fun and memorable nights of your life, LIVE AIDS: G na G sa 33 is an event not to be missed!
