Storyline

To avoid taking their power, Adran gives a white stone to Aio who is tasked to give it to whoever is worthy to inherit it. Aio escapes to Earth before Braguda can destroy the planet Marte. Braguda follows Aio, and when Aio reaches the earth's atmosphere, Braguda disables her spaceship and it crashes while the white stone fall out of the ship where the young Narda discovers it. Aio survives the crash and meets Narda to tell her to keep the stone until the right time comes to receive "the call". After eight years, Aio secretly disguises as an old beggar calls Narda through a telepathic message.

Annoyingly bad special effects; But who cares? It's a phenomenon!
11 April 2005 | by pope_innocentyearsSee all my reviews

the Darna Checklist: Scantily-clad flying super-heroine? Check. Supervillains trying to take over the world? Check. Handsome love interests? Check. Fantastical special effects? Well...

Darna is a promising new concept on TV: a comic-book like storytelling of the trials of a Superheroine destined to become the savior of mankind against super evil that is desperate to create havoc all over. Angel Locsin, fresh from her stint as bird-girl Alwina on 'Mulawin' starts as Darna, the local version of Wonder Woman. Actors and included in the bill are Eddie Garcia, Sandy Andolong, Christopher de Leon, Alessandra de Rossi, and a whole slew of other great actors.

Even the commercialization of the parent network was outstanding: there is no lack of TV guesting and promotions. In fact, the first few episodes are top-raters.

However, there are a few shortcomings that are not easy to overlook. Firstly, some of the special effects are so bad, its annoying. Obviously, the directors lack of vision, and probably due to the lack of budget alloted for special effects. However, no high budget is needed if the director had the vision... Peter Jackson and George Lucas created their first masterpieces with virtually no budget at all.

Secondly, the characters are one-dimensional: Evil aunt is evil. Hero girl's parents are pitiful. Oh and don't forget a big evil snake ala-anaconda to make things worse.

Thirdly, overacting, overacting everywhere! Hello Sandy Andolong? We can't blame her actually, she hasn't acted for a while. But isn't your 'screaming evil character' just too much? We hope there's development regarding this on future episodes.

n a final note, regardless of all these wee complaints, Darna is still a top-rater among evening audiences. The problem arises when audiences will finally realize that these problems are hard to overlook, Darna might lose the top spot.
