Don’t know about TVRI but there’s always Extravaganza for this sort of thing. Although for me I hardly get to see much of these sort of acts, Mrs Patung always changes the channel when they come on…
who the hell is Dewi Perssik? Wait till FPI tars and feathers her.
And where the hell is Inul Daratista?
Well, you should have figured out why.
TVRI is the national television. Therefore it should set an example. Obviously there is a distinction between an elegant show and a trashy show. Though both have their own legitimate audience, I think TVRI has the obligation to lean towards the first. Now looking at both photos you showed above, I tend to agree with TVRI. If you want to see more legs or breasts, you’re welcome to watch … MTV? I watch MTV (when I’m really bored) … but the point is, TVRI is assigned a different role.
Well, I have no problems admiring attractive women, especially if they are persecuted by the FPI.
Dewi is an excellent star, really enjoys herself on stage and makes a real effort to appreciate her audience.
TVRI belongs to the Indonesian people, not the fussy elite.
I wish you wouldn’t say things like that, because it takes the fun out of insulting you !
TVRI should definitely not be dictated by what FPI think, if that what you mean. But TVRI is not there for providing pure entertainment for Indonesian people either, if that’s what you mean by “belongs to Indonesian people”.
Ross- you’re silly. I like it.
BUT the charter of TeleVisi Republik Indonesia is to promote Indonesiaqn arts and culture.
Dangdut and raunchy behaviour are imbecilic and derivative and do not positively educate the Rakyat.
The Rakyat will be forcefed higher culture such as Wayang and Ketoprak until they learn to speak proper Kromo Inggil and use their brains for something higher than idiotic and trite sentimentalism, “Sinetron cengeng” and premature child-bearing.
We “fussy elites” will not make repeat the stupidity of the West by pretending the Rakyat are the best masters of their own destiny.
Demonstrably they most certainly are not.
