Legacy showed promise with its fast-paced development in the early weeks. But for some odd reason, the story fell flat and crawled back into the standard sappy soap stories.
I would have loved to see Natasha be the strong corporate maverick going headstrong against the Salcedos, and even against her own sisters. Screw being an adopted child, she was trained all her life to take over the company backed by sound education at that! Seems that the character was too flawed as she got too caught up with her personal issues, and instead of showing what could have been Natasha's strengths as a modern woman, she ended up a whiny wimpy damsel in distress. It's even ridiculous to see her being pushed over by Bernadette, who's only fighting chance at this point is having Alcantara blood in her and nothing more. Lovi gave it her best, but I'm sure she could have done something more.
Much could have been done with Cherie Gil's character as well in the corporate scene. After all, she is also an heiress to her father's banking fortune, so I was expecting her to be more cunning than a bored rich housewife. Such a waste of acting prowess.
Diana's character progressed awkwardly as well. She showed promise earlier on, then got caught up with this whole love angle and the character went bust. I was hoping that working for the Salcedos will make her a better corporate woman, but if you'd notice, all she did was create reports and presentations. Bernadette even outshone her in getting sponsorship for that beach event! SGC did not really prosper with her being around and she had no major breakthroughs to be proud of. Sad, really.
Bernadette was fun to watch, however, the development was lacking as well. She could have done an Eliza Doolittle, from the bakya illegitimate daughter to a strong PR head. That way, it won't look awkward when she starts playing bully to Natasha. In the end, it was kinda annoying to have all this wrong english, when in a way, she is expected to improve especially since she started branding herself as an Alcantara.
Personally, I think Maritoni Fernandez and Isabel Lopez should have switched roles. They end up looking uncomfy in their characters and tend to overcompensate to cover it all up.
Sid Lucero could have lost a few pounds and maybe grow some facial hair in order to look more mature and less like his character in his earlier soap, Amaya. Again, another good actor gone to waste. It's just ridiculous to watch someone who should be the Alcantara's biggest corporate foe going bonkers over a girl. Makes him look like a pathetic lovestruck teenager.
No idea how to save the character Josh; he's one of those characters who can leave the show unnoticed.
I guess the only saving grace of this soap was Eddie Garcia, magnificent as ever. He's every inch a cunning businessman, but still comes through as a caring grandfather.
Maybe next time the writers can come up with something a bit more up-to-date plots and less 90's drama.
seguro kaya josh character ay medyo nag lie low dahil sa bago niyang show. kase instead na patayin ang character niya ay nilagyan na lang nang reason para hindi halatang nasa another soap na siya. tama ka sa mga sinabi at I am 100% agree.
