The original ‘Agimat' holders, the Revilla family, are very much impressed with the way ABS-CBN has executed its TV remake of Tiagong Akyat, the first installment of Agimat: Mga Alamat ni Ramon Revilla.

"Thank you ABS-CBN for keeping the story of Agimat alive," Senator Bong  Revilla shared. He has nothing but good words for Gerald Anderson who plays the role of Tiagong Akyat. "Galing ni Gerald. He deserves all the praises."

On the other hand, the Agimat boys namely, Gerald (as Tiagong Akyat), Jake Cuenca (Elias Paniki), Coco Martin (as Tonyong Bayawak) and Jolo Revilla (as Pepeng Agimat) have drawn a huge crowd in their mall show held at SM Dasmariñas recently.

In fact, according to the management of SM Dasmariñas, the biggest crowd ever in the said mall was pulled by the Agimat mall show. "More than a thousand have attended the event, which in our records, the biggest number ever."

Gerald even shared, "Sobrang saya noong mall show. Natutuwa kami nina Jake, Coco at Jolo sa response ng mga tao. Parang concert na rin sa dami ng nagpunta (laughs)."

This week in Tiagong Akyat, an important person in Tiago's (Gerald) life will be placed at the brink of death. How will Tiago deal with the unwanted incident?
