Jane: So, what did you think about the puppet theater TV show? Ian: To be honest, I'm amazed. I thought it was fantastic. Jane:I told you you'd like it. Ian:I know, but I didn't believe you. The puppet shows we have in England are not very entertaining. They were popular about 200 years ago, but nobody watches them now. Jane: Taiwanese puppet theater has a very long history too, but the art has adapted over time. I guess that's why it's still popular. Ian: You might be right. This puppet show used lots of special effects that didn't look old-fashioned at all. Jane: And the puppets are quite intricate, so they appear quite lifelike when you see them. Ian: Yeah, but the best part was the story. English puppet shows use silly stories, so it was great to see the performance tell a serious story with lots of action in it. Jane: That's great. I'm really glad you liked it!
