“Kapag May Katwiran, Ipaglaban Mo!”
This is the line that ruled Sunday TV in the 90’s. I used to watch this legal drama when I was young and during those times, Sunday afternoon in our home will not be complete without watching Atty. Jose Sison’s Ipaglaban Mo.
The drama anthology tackles real life court cases and how they were resolved. I think this show tapped my interest in law, because they emphasized not only on the drama aspect but also on the basic law principles and procedures. Legal terms and maneuvers were also shown thus helping the viewers get the basics in court procedures and proceedings. The show run in ABS-CBN from 1992-1998. Also, because the program became a huge hit to the viewers, a movie adaptation was also created which was shot in our town in Majayjay, Laguna.
After 16 years, the hit legal-drama anthology will return on television and will be airing again on ABS-CBN. It will still be hosted by the father and son tandem of Atty. Jose and Jopet Sison. ABS-CBN also confirmed that it will retain the same format just like the Ipaglaban Mo in the 90’s.
Will definitely look forward to watching this show again, because it’s not only entertaining but also informative.
