How do you compare the T&T television series called, 'Westwood Park' as compared to the other local production from Jamaica called, 'Royal Palm Estate'? Note, that this is not just about acting or movie lines, but about the way it depicts the culture and realities of both islands.

Westwood Park by far out does Royal Palm Estate. Now I am speaking as one who has not been to Jamaica so I do not know how well it portrays the culture, but from the other aspects mentioned I can safely say that Westwood Park is a far better show in terms of acting, set production, storyline and emotion. I find Royal Palm Estate always wanting and the actors speaking in their throat - even the intro is in need of a revival.
I cannot stand Royal Palm Estate, everytime you turn on the show they are talking about sex or showing explicit scenes about it, is a bit too much for a 8:00pm Sunday night show. :rolleyes:
I remember these! How come they don't show dramas like these again? Trinbago needs some good local TV so we aren't always influenced by everything from America.
