escflashmalta.com is currently focusing on the upcoming edition of the Eurovision Song Contest whilst keeping dibs on the latest news from the local music scene and one of the features which we promote highly is that of the television series, D.R.E.A.M.S whose script is written by Evelyn Saliba La Rosa and Michael Vella Haber with original songs composed by Maestro Ray Agius. The element of creating original music in Maltese was met extremely well by music critics and this gives the public the opportunity to venture out of the typical drama. Maestro Ray Agius is an established composer noting that he has achieved success locally and internationally with two of his songs in particular, representing Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest, where they achieved top ten results. These were of course; Keep Me In Mind by Mike Spiteri in 1995 and Let Me Fly by Debbie Scerri in 1997 and both achieved top ten results for Malta. The series which airs on Television Malta, the main organ of transmittion for the Public Broadcasting Services will return for a twenty-second episode this evening.

A plot is known to have a series of twists and they are definitely not lacking at the moment in the case of Karen (Lara Dimech) who recently learned from her mother, Helen (Roberta Briffa) that her father is not the figure she has known for all the past couple of years but Paul (Kevin De Leonardo). This will surely come as a shock to many for the simple reason that his name is not new, and indeed so because he also happens to be the father of Diane (Michela Galea). Karen who is being accompanied by her brother, Jeremy (Mikhail Attard) is dumbfounded at how the cards have played out in what was meant to be the final house of the night. The second story which is receiving a lot of coverage at the moment is the one featuring Frances (Sabina Attard) whose sole is to convince her husband, Samwel (Joseph Fenech) that she is innocent of the fraud charges that landed her in prison in the first place. Pamela (Lara Cuschieri) had played her cards right in a bid to get the former job that Frances had as a high level executive and the man whom she truly loved. Nevertheless, Amber (Celine Cuschieri) was having none of this and she was foiling Pamela's plans in a series of lies. 

Samwel is visited by someone at the door, that someone most likely being Hilda (Evelyn Saliba La Rosa) but this will be revealed this evening. In the meantime, Antoinette (Annalise Psaila) is still seemingly being given the cold shoulder by Brandon (Jean Pierre Cassar) over numerous faults created specifically by Tiffany (Kristen Camilleri). Jade (Rachel Genovese), Jasmine (Rachael Tedesco Triccas) and Katia (Jade Cini) will be trying their best to show the evidence they have acquired against Tiffany but will he believe them or will he rather believe his mind. His reaction might be expected but what will it unfold. Antoinette on the other hand is told of the issues at hand and decides to confront Tiffany this evening but the latter might be playing her cards right, so much so that deception might the key to success in this storyline. The social stratosphere has taken an intriguing turn of late but nevertheless, when turning back to the limitation of a classroom with Carlo Francalanza (Joe Tanti), it seems that everyone is seemingly spaced out but what is the reason behind this? Another scintillating episode of D.R.E.A.M.S awaits on Television Malta right after the evening news bulletin at around 20:45 CET. Remember that every part of the episode bears a lot of importance and thus it is vital that one sees it through.

D.R.E.A.M.S: More Twists and Turns Tonight

Lemons are existent for a purpose, and that is to be turned into lemonade and whilst situations might look somewhat difficult at times, one has to see the light at the end of the tunnel and encounter the issue head on. Writing is one of the stumbling blocks that an individual may face especially when it is a line of work because being original and creative takes a lot of time and dedication. Evelyn Saliba La Rosa and Michael Vella Haber would like to transcend their thoughts into a script and that is why the television series D.R.E.A.M.S came into existence with a flair for music inspired by international sitcoms such as Glee and Smash amongst others. Scriptwriting is one thing but penning the lyrics to songs composed by Maestro Ray Agius is clearly another and it seems that success is always well attributed. escflashmalta.com has always been proud to support upcoming artists and this is one series which promotes the future of the local music industry. Rewind Productions in collaboration with Television Malta will be airing the nineteenth episode this evening.

Gloria (Joanne Busuttil) and Robert (Andre' Penza) are no longer married according to the recent progression of events noting that separation papers have been filed and it seems that Edward (Manuel Cutajar) is already taking advantage of the situation by virtue of asking her out on a date. Despite the reluctance, Gloria accepts on the condition that they are just friends. Celebration is definitely not a word that comes to mind in her current situation but nevertheless, Edward had other plans and it seems that she is being played big time. The audience knows a bit of the background story but nevertheless, the relationship with Cynthia (Stephanie Attard Vella) is very much difficult to understand. The truth is always revealed at one point and it seems that more will be known by tonight! Relationships in recent weeks have somewhat been extremely messy whether inclined within a family or whether developing in terms of love. The next couple to garner airtime is the one featuring Jade (Rachel Genovese) and Alex (Luke Brincat) who are keeping things at an extremely low profile.

The two absolutely hated each other at the beginning as seen when given the assignment by Carlo Francalanza (Joe Tanti) but it seems that the social issues that they both seem to be facing incorporating the element of exclusion has brought them together. Moments are hard to get and during a conversation between Alex and Jade, it seemed that things were steadily progressing until the former gets a phonecall, most likely from Gina (Josephine Fuller), his mother unless it was someone who might be spying on the whole family. The story is once more pretty much in the dark and the audience might have to wait a while until they come to know of all the details. Helen (Roberta Briffa) gave Karen (Lara Dimech) a lot of hefty information to handle especially for a teenager raising a child but despite disappointing her daughter in not giving her the name of her actual father, she is seemingly giving clues and hands her a note with some details scribbled down. Tonight! Another scintillating episode of D.R.E.A.M.S awaits on Television Malta right after the evening news bulletin at around 20:45 CET.
