Re: Darna (ABS-CBN, 2022)

No sooner are Borgo and Ishna safe and sound at Rex Vanguardia's pad..then Borgo abuses his assistant again, this time holding Ishna's own knife to her throat! And she just stands there and takes it. When is she going to stop doing that? I'm a little behind with the English subs. Doesn't Ishna know...

Re: Darna (ABS-CBN, 2022)

Random questions I have after watching Darna: How big is Nueva Esperanza? It seems to have a healthy population (judging by social media), a good sized police department, its own mayor, and yet only one tv news reporter. He not only reports stories in the field, but acts as news anchor and presumab...

The final encounter with Borgo turned out to be a dud. I guess the good thing is that we don't really have to wait too long for season 2. I just hope the long game they're playing with Valentina pays off big time, though.

Speaking of bullets and bracelets, it does make no sense that in one episode she's impervious to bullets, then in another, she has to rely on her bracelets to deflect them. Though on the other hand, the inconsistency in power levels is not really exclusive to Darna alone.
