TV3 karaoke is out of tune

With the premiere of The last karaoke night one of these amazing television phenomena occurred: The advertisement for the series was better than the series itself. TV3 seduced us for a few weeks with a commercial in which, thanks to a fantastic sequence schedule, we were introduced to the characters and the story. They knew how to arouse curiosity in the audience. But if until now Monday was the official day to see crime On public television this week, viewers fell victim to a hard-to-swallow fiction.

The last karaoke night It’s a series that prompts the viewer not to look for coherence or realism. A lot of fictions do, and so it would be unfair to ask that of this premiere. The problem with the series isn’t the inconsistency that a giant three-story karaoke has a kitchen worthy of the worst restaurants in the world. Card game and serve an instantly prepared tasting menu. The improbability is also not to blame for the linguistic reality presented or the jumps the kitchen clock that went back and forth or stopped.

The problem of The last karaoke night it’s artificiality. Everything that is achieved with the good and warm visual calculation is lost with terrible dialogues. The characters prosopopeia leads them to a very wrong type of relationship. The idea of ​​a series that integrates karaoke on the viewer’s screen and brings music into the action is original. It’s also narrative powerful to introduce multiple characters to improve ambitious choral fiction. But the subplots of so many protagonists eventually devoured the main plot. Nothing happened in the first and second chapters. The action and mystery that will lead to the final karaoke fire drowned amid naive little dramas that aroused no curiosity. The acting quality of some actors and actresses was questionable, partly due to a poor script. And as is usual in many television fictions, there were interventions that were not understood, be it because of the actors’ lack of vocalizations or because of the sound system. We could have subtitled it like karaoke.

Narrative, this idea of ​​starting by uncovering the ending and figuring out how to get there usually works. But the Flashback from The last karaoke night it loses power quickly because it doesn’t handle the countdown idea well. The mystery fades along the way. And the viewer forgets the concept of time that the series is supposed to reinforce. It is very difficult to prolong a single night into multiple episodes, and that time trial against the fire that should fascinate us doesn’t exist.

The series title can be fateful foreshadowing. After the first two chapters, it would not be surprising that this Monday would have been the last karaoke night for most of the audience.
