Little Nonya 3 Minutes Extra Footage -The Final Nail...

Ok, what was that? Heavily publicised for a no content whatsoever to speak of 3 minutes footage? They just wasted 3 precious minutes of my time...

Just yesterday and this morning, I was thinking Mediacorp finally know how to play the marketing game. I had thought they actually shot an alternate ending to feed audiences' dissatisfaction with the original one. Though it was not new tactic for TVB did it once for their drama - La Femme Desperado (女人唔易做), so little Nonya will have the ending that Yue Niang and Chen Xi finally get together in the end. Plus the Chinese News Paper speculated the writer actually had 5 version of the ending, I was so into the thought of an alternate ending!
Whatever happened to the producer’s comment when asked if there will be a sequel – 见好就收?

This is typical – 画蛇添足。 Not one somemore, but three feet*.

Hai~ should have ended at the peak, now it is officially crappy show. Wasted my effort to try rebutt those bad press earlier on.

*Additional Note - Looks like the snake will have 6 feet now... Not sure if it is true, but I just heard that they are going to repeat the 3 minutes footage tomorrow... LOL...

Well I not a fan of Little Nonya from the start. Only watch it a few times in camp during my ICT when the attention was on the pushup bras.

Think Mediacorp still has lots to learn and improve.

The 3-mins footage is too short. The last 2-episodes was a rush ending. What happens to the rest of the characters?? The producer should considers re-make/extension of the last 2-episodes.

Seriously, I think they locked themselves in. Haven't they read what are people's comments before plotting anything? They have an online forum for them to scout for opinions loh... I wonder if they are NATO when they continued to feed the Chinese papers with more versions of the story... No Footage, You can talk as much as you want. :P

Hi there,

Saw ur comment on my post. Haha. Ripped it off some lyrics website, so didn't bother to remove it. I think hypy is good, so maybe someone can sing along with it?

Anyway, the little nyonya extra footage is stupid. The ending seems to be done in a hurry, as if in order to end the series so that the reunion dinner will spread to cny making it relevant.
