A Singaporean classic.
The Singaporean blockbuster series about a man who can go virtual reality is an award-winning classic that has touched the hearts of millions here.
One Singaporean, Zho Hee Seow, said: “It’s like The Little Nyonya with a mask.”
“When I was a kid, I wanted to grow up to be VR Man. Now that I am older and working, I know it is futile and have given up all hope because there can only be one VR Man and that man won’t be me.”
Other locals have hailed the streaming of VR Man internationally as a step in the right direction for local media.
Another local, Kua Hee Gong, said the series should be brought back with a continuing storyline: “VR Man should make a comeback.”
“It will cost Mediacorp the same amount of money now to replicate the special effects used in 1998.”
“About 50 cents in total.”
“Low cost, high payout.”
