“Technical difficulties” marred the highly anticipated June 27 episode of “Be Careful With My Heart,” which was to feature the “first real kiss” of its lead characters, prompting the halt of its broadcast to the dismay of its avid followers online.
The daytime series’ episode aired Thursday had been teased to show the first kiss on the lips of Sir Chief (Richard Yap) and Maya (Jodi Sta. Maria), following the acceptance of the widowed businessman’s children of his relationship with their former nanny.
As the episode progressed Thursday, followers of the program took to micro-blogging site Twitter to complain about the apparent imbalance in the volume of the characters’ voices and the musical scoring.
Numerous tweets observed that the dialogue could hardly be heard, with the background music overpowering the audio.
Before Thursday’s episode of “Be Careful With My Heart” reached its first commercial gap, its telecast stopped, with a programming advisory shortly appearing on screen.
The advisory read: “Due to technical difficulties, today’s episode of ‘Be Careful With My Heart’ will be shown tomorrow.”
The live episode of “It’s Showtime,” the Kapamilya noontime variety program which airs weekdays at 12:30 p.m., was aired earlier in lieu of its lead-in series.
One of noontime show’s hosts, Vice Ganda, re-iterated the advisory earlier flashed on screen: “Sa lahat ng sumusubaybay sa ‘Be Careful With My Heart,’ mapapanood niyo po bukas ang kabuuan ng episode na dapat napanood niyo today.”
