The ban slapped on the last few episodes of Nua Mek 2 has made this TV drama far hotter than its producer could ever have expected. You are totally out of touch if you don't know that Thais have been talking about this subject practically non-stop since last Friday. It's the current hot topic. 

I'm not a fan of the series and barely know who's who in it, although I did watch a few segments of a single episode a while ago. Normally, I couldn't care less what's going out on television or what programme is replacing which soap in a particular time slot. But this ban drew me back to my TV set again.

How could it not? Everyone was talking about it on Facebook. And some of the Myanmar expat workers I know cried out loud in front of their TV the evening the premature ending of their favourite series was announced. They even staged a silent protest _ although the Channel 3 management would never acknowledge that it had noticed anything amiss _ by not watching the first episode of the replacement series, even though this features heart-throb actor Naded Kugimiya.
