TV Show Cancellation Causes Furor Addiction or Political?

The cancellation of two final episodes of  a TV Show caused an uproar in Thailand.

The programmer was focusing on Political manipulation  with a fictitious  prime minister.


Does any one remember  ‘Kissa Kursi Ka’, which angered Indira Gandhi and Sanjay Gandhi.?



A Thai TV station’s decision to cancel a popular and edgy soap opera mini-series has caused an uproar among viewers and critics who are demanding that the show’s final episodes be shown.

Channel 3 announced Friday that it would immediately stop airing the prime-time action drama “Nua Mek 2” after “having considered that some content was inappropriate for broadcast.”

The show, which began Dec. 14 and was aired three nights a week, told the story of a fictitious Thai prime minister, his corrupt deputy, black magic and political manipulation. After the station’s announcement, the final two two-hour episodes, which were scheduled for Friday and Saturday, were not broadcast.

The station did not further explain its decision to cancel the show, but a Channel 3 executive told a member of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission, Thailand’s broadcast regulator, that the channel feared the show’s content would violate the law, Thai media reported over the weekend.

Some supporters of the series speculated that Thailand’s government, which closely monitors television content, had a hand in the cancellation, but government officials denied having pressured Channel 3 to terminate the show.

“Those who know best (about the issue) are the broadcaster, producers and related personnel,” Prime Minister’s Office minister Warathep Rattanakorn told reporters Saturday.



Criticism and discussion go on for four long hours before the fanclub admin of the actress wrote a message admitting that the message was written that way because of what they heard on “Krob Krua Bungtern” that a new lakorn is airing this week, that’s why they second guess that “neua Mek 2 is ending this Friday.” And alluding things to politician is also “guessing”. The message are as below:

“Hello, last evening we wrote that neua Mek 2 is ending this Friday and someone took our message out of the page to a lot of places. We would like to clarify that we heard from Pe’Benz in “Krob Krua Bungtern” that the lakorn Raeng Prathana is airing this week, so we guess Neua Mek 2 is ending this Friday. We also guess why it end so early because the lakorn deals with politcal issues. This lead a lot of people to turn this into a big issue regarding politics. The truth was this is all guessing. #admin”
