Comments on NetEase:
Not bad, only one person fell asleep.
Being able to fall asleep at the show, just goes to show the quality of the Spring Festival Gala…
Please accept this “best audience member” award.
She’s not considered bad, because she more or less saw the Spring Festival Gala, whereas I didn’t even watch it at all and just played cards, because we knew early on that the Spring Festival Gala show is just some garbage.
A boring/pointless show.
Show how this Spring Festival Gala was the worst ever.
The old woman had a tiring day, and just as she was thinking she could finally rest, her filial children forced to attend the show. Poor her.
Politics simply blind those idiots without education. The entire television program to me is just wasting a huge amount of taxpayers’ money to hold a large scale political performance, without any meaning, all packaged in hardware, entertainment kidnapped by politics, harmonized. Many of the performers are high-ranking military officials, CPPCC members, with double identities, so what entertainment can they provide us poor naive people? It is a tragedy of mainlanders’ consciousness. This is a historical regression.
I fell asleep so many times watching it…
The Chinese New Year’s Gala is just a song and dance version of Xinwen Lianbo, what’s worth watching!?
Good thing I didn’t watch the Spring Festival Gala… especially if it was like this even being there in the audience… Every year it is those same faces [acts]. I got tired of it long ago.
Her sleeping shows that she’s mentally awake. The other people may be awake, but they’re mentally asleep.
Anyone remember this guy “Laughing Brother”?
