Many may not remember anymore, but we actually had a TV show that ran for a couple of seasons on channel 13 called Rebyu. It was quite an experience. We realized how different radio and television actually were. But those couple of seasons on air we would never EVER forget. On the second season, we were joined by some Viva kids, more like tweens, which included Anne Curtis, Maui Taylor and even the guy who eventually found his second wind as Twitter’s PCOS Machine. Why am I even bringing this all up?
My sister actually recorded ALL episodes from first to last on VHS. Unfortunately, their house burned down in 2003, including all footage of the shows that we have. 8 years after, we had a major clean-up at the house, and lo and behold, we find a stack of VHS tapes in one dusty corner of one dusty closet. Apparently, not ALL of the tapes were in my sister’s house. So what my family did, behind my back, was to have the contents of the VHS tapes transferred to CD’s, and so now we have maybe 5-10 episodes of Rebyu ready for viewing.
I haven’t watched them yet. I’m quite nervous to re-visit that part of our lives. But our barkada decided that we’ll have a viewing party. We’ll go to our condo and bring food and watch the Rebyu episodes, and they will have fun at our expense and never let us live it down. I don’t even know what I’ll do with them. Do I share them? Do I upload them on YouTube? Or do I let sleeping dogs lie and keep those episodes where they might belong (in the foggy memories of those who watched)?
I haven’t decided yet…bahala na si Batman…
