From someone who grew up in the west then went to live in Singapore I can warn any of you of watching a native "Sitcom" and wanting to laugh.

Singapore is a very strict region with draconian laws and, while a very safe place to live with no crime, its hardly exciting. This is reflected in the TV humour.

No offence to anyone who lives there, just a word of warning for any westerners.

Hi.I'm from Singapore and I've actually seen a few episodes of that drama. Its not what it my seem. It may look cute but the overall acting was pretty bad.

The writers tried to create a intergalactic nerd but couldn't pull it off. The charater was only into transformers and star wars, gijoe tmnt and motu were all forgotten. Very sloppy. His 'prime' phase was for only a few episodes only. He imagined the gal as arcee because of a simple reply which was kinda similar to his transformers lingo.

It may be funny to look at for others.But if your a transformer fan it brings bad reputation and negative stereotypes as it was kicking up dust left from 40 year old virgin.

hahaha... as a singaporean i'd like to warn everyone that singaporean tv (in particular the english sitcoms) can be pretty terrible and unoriginal. Over the past 10 years there has only been one sitcom that I would say is marketable to an international audience (Under One Roof, for those in the know), and one other one that was pretty funny, but definitely a nono for an international audience (PCK. Fans of the Amazing Race might remember this weird guy in Yellow Boots when they stopped over in Singapore a couple of seasons ago).

I'm studying in the States now so I'm not sure what's what on Singapore TV right now, but what the previous poster said sounds eerily familiar and I wouldn't be surprised if the show sucked.

THAT BEING SAID, however. The actress is very famous for being hot in Singapore; arguably the hottest actress on Singapore TV right now, although she gets some bad press sometimes. If anyone was turned on by the Arcee costume it must have been the actress radiating sexiness from within :D

Sorry for the double post, but I'd also like to mention that the rubbish TV on Singapore has got nothing to do with the laws of Singapore; it is more about a complete lack of creativity in the Singapore TV industry. Singapore's "draconian laws" do not screen off popular western comedies like Friends, Big Bang Theory etc. There is nothing in Western comedies that Singapore would censor off. It is unfair to say that the lack of quality in Singapore TV is down to any of our laws. But I must agree that TV in Singapore is painful to watch sometimes.

I'd also make a case for Singapore's so called "draconian" laws, but I think that would be pretty off topic. I think it would suffice to say that I think most of the laws are fine as is and help make our country a safer and better place to live in.

Thanks for the reply, glad to open a bit of debate on this.

I think my post might have read as a little harsh (it was late here when I posted) but the laws in Singapore are by no means a bad thing so sorry if thats the message that came through in my post.

Having spend all my life to date in England which is pretty liberable and to some extent lawless in some regards, moving to Singapore was a huge culture shock just for do's and don'ts that seem very strict to outsiders.

I did tend to look at everything I couldn't do there or that I missed (such as good TV) and bundle it all together under the laws being the main cause.

For better or worse one of my fave pastimes is going out with my mates drinking after work on a friday, which normally ends in the entire night in the pub, and then results in some carnage which is often worth a tale. Singapore has none of this as no one is drunk and disorderly (not a bad thing) so there was less fun from my perspective.

Still just my two cents, lots of other stuff about the Island that I did like
