The Synopsis

Let's watch the journey of the twins Ador and Cardo (both played by Coco Martin), who were away from each other because of financial reasons even as they followed the same path of law enforcement. Ador is a celebrated PNP police officer, with a very loving family as his source of strong moral support. On the other hand, Cardo loves the solitude of the mountains as a SAF Trooper. Their lives take a dramatic turn after Ador gets himself trapped in a syndicate which got him killed. To cover for his death, Cardo was ordered to pretend as his brother, family and all, and be re-united with his grandmother whom he hates for abandoning him when he was still young. In this difficult situation, how will Cardo face the life of his dead brother, Ador, which is an entirely different world from the world he used to live? Will he ever get the satisfying opportunity to avenge his brother's death and all the loss the syndicate dealt to the family?

Video - FPJ's: Ang Probinsyano October 21, 2015 Teaser

This is also a teaser of the lowest rating episode of "Ang Probinsyano" that got 35.4% rating but when compared to other TV series it is still a good rating. Onyok and Cardo are reunited in this episode. They really are partners in action!

What Some Facebook Users Say About "Ang Probinsyano"

 

Jhay Lastimosa says: "ang galing.panalo talaga the best." (It's good. It's really a winner, the best.)

Rai Millano: "Very well executed production and FPJ's Ang Probinsyano continues to dominate the ratings in its timeslot. Slashing the Rival's Marimar to only a piece."

Anika Mharditte Aninon: "Heart touching eksena kagabi sa probinsyano!. Ang galing nla lahat!" (Heart touching scene in "Ang Probinsyano" last night! They are all good[actors/actresses]!)

Kathleen Llanes: "Hanip talaga ang teleserye the best ang kapamilya." (The series is really great/cool, kapamilya[referring to ABS-CBN] is the best.)

Meriam Colangoy: "Malufet talaga ang dos lahat ng teleserye ja abang abang." (Channel 2/ABS-CBN is really great, all of their tv series are a must watch.)

 

 

My Short Feedback

What I really like about "Ang Probinsyano" is that even though it is an action-drama series there are a lot of scenes that really make me smile and laugh! This is mostly because of Onyok and Cardo. If you ever find time to watch this TV series, I'm sure you will also find yourself laughing while watching these two characters! Onyok's expression "Hay, naku!"(an Filipino slang expression similar to but does not exactly mean "Oh my God" or "Oh my gosh") is also one of the things I love in this series.

Well, that's all I can say about my favorite TV show or series. I'm pretty sure you will also love this series! Cheers!
