Filipino viewers continue to know more about their legal rights every week by watching ABS-CBN’s hit legal drama “Ipaglaban Mo,” which is now in its third year on air.
Through its compelling dramatization of timely and relevant cases, the show continues to generate positive feedback especially from netizens who share their thoughts and learnings about the episodes.
“Rape is not a joke. The victim deserves justice. #IMAbuso,” said Twitter user @MissyNicolei after watching an episode that featured a perverted employer forcing his garderner to sexually abuse his house help.
“Unethical behavior of some public servers. Let’s not violate human rights for personal interests. #IMBuyBust,” commented @chinitooongaaa on the case of a family man who was framed by the police for possessing illegal drugs.
“Whether we admit it or not, this is what’s happening now #IMBuyBust,” shared @atekztersOJD14 about the same episode.
Meanwhile, the “Kapatiran” episode that featured a fraternity leader who drugged and raped one of his new recruits taught netizens to be more discerning when it comes to the company they keep.
“We should really choose our friends. Learn to say no sometimes. #IMKapatiran,” said @HelloThereMark.
“We youngsters should listen to our parents. Sometimes they know what’s best for us,” said @ItsLigayaJoy.
Since “Ipaglaban Mo” premiered on ABS-CBN in 2014, the show has consistently drawn viewers and won in its timeslot. It has also received awards from the PMPC Star Awards for TV and Alta Media Icon Awards.
The show continues to educate viewers this week with an odd case of a young man named Andre (Marco Gumabao) who stabs and kills his friend Macky (Jairus Aquino) out of envy. His mother claims later on that he is suffering from a mental disorder. Are they telling the truth or just finding a way out? Will Macky’s family get justice?
Joining the cast in this week’s episode are Sharmaine Arnaiz, Francine Prietto, Nathaniel Britt, and Mark Rivera.
