The second installment to Triumph in the Skies <衝上雲宵> is finally airing this summer! TVB’s long overdue follow-up of the pilot drama will premiere on July 15, 2013 on TVB Jade, taking over the time slot that will be vacated by fantasy drama A Change of Heart <好心作怪>.


The story of Triumph in the Skies 2 takes place roughly a few years after airline pilot captain Sam (Francis Ng 吳鎮宇) marries Zoe (Myolie Wu 胡杏兒), a passenger service agent who was born with a severe heart condition. When Zoe dies, the introverted and mournful Sam resigns his position as pilot captain and spends a long vacation in England. There, he meets the heartbroken student pilot Holly (Fala Chen 陳法拉), who convinces him to return to Hong Kong to join Skylette Airlines.

At Skylette, Sam meets Jayden (Chilam Cheung 張智霖), a boastful and womanizing captain-in-training whom Sam is in charge of examining. Their opposite personalities clash and their rivalry become even stronger when both of them develop a fondness for Holly.

Meanwhile, Sam’s younger brother Isaac (Ron Ng 吳卓羲) meets aircraft maintenance technician Summer (Myolie Wu), Jayden’s cold and withdrawn younger sister. Summer bears a strong physical resemblance to Isaac’s deceased sister-in-law Zoe, and Isaac finds it hard to ignore her. An unfortunate experience in her childhood causes Summer to loathe her elder brother Jayden, but Isaac helps the pair patch up their relationship. Summer falls in love with Isaac, but Isaac does not want to remind Sam of his heartbroken past.

Isaac’s good friend, first officer pilot Roy (Kenneth Ma 馬國明) is emotionally caught in relationships with two girlfriends. He confides to senior cabin crew leader Heather (Elena Kong 江美儀), whom he considers as his soul mate.

In a related story, Hong Kong national swimming team athlete Jim (Him Law 羅仲謙) quits the team to earn a pilot license. He befriends the ground crew and pilots at Skylette Airlines, also falling in love with cabin crew leader Coco (Nancy Wu 胡定欣), now a pregnant surrogate mother.

Filming for Triumph in the Skies 2 took nearly seven months to complete. Aside from Hong Kong, the drama was also shot at various locations in mainland China, Taiwan, France, and England.

    1. Smart Aleck says:

      I have been waiting for this sequel for ten years! Please do not disappoint me TVB! I remember watching this in second grade, and I loved the themesong SOOO MUCH. Now I am a senior in high school LOL it’s been so long. Please be as good or even better than the first. Crossing my fingers!

      • Iris says:

        I can’t echo you more. I just hope this sequel does not turn out to be like the sequel of “War and Beauty.” A wonderful memory is better than a flop re-make.

        • Smart Aleck says:

          If they really do make a horrible sequel… then I would have rather have them leave the series the series the way it was ): totally agree with you!

      • sel_fi_wu says:

        i don’t remember much of what i saw when it first aired 10 years ago but years later when i download and rewatched i really love the premise of the series!

      • HeTieShou says:

        Was the first installment good?? I have not seen it yet. Do you guys mind sharing what you thought? What was the cast for the first installment??

        • Austin says:

          The first installment was pretty good though a bit draggy at some parts like most series, it’s a really inspirational series. I personally thought they spent too much time on the romance especially on Francis and Flora, it wasn’t as interesting. The original cast had Francis, Flora, Joe Ma, Ron Ng, Sammul Chan, Kenneth Ma, Bosco Wong, Michelle Ye, Myolie Wu and Nancy Wu. Sadly only about less than half of the original is returning. Hopefully this won’t disappoint

        • HeTieShou says:

          Thanks a lot for the info! I may catch it sometime to see how it is. It would have been great to have Sammul, Michelle and others come back. However, there is more to a series rather than just the cast. I feel the script, plot and other things are more important so hope part 2 will be good too.

        • HeTieShou says:

          By the way, did they travel to Europe or any other country for the first installment? Glad they did for the second installment.

        • Austin says:

          Yup they did travel to Europe! And Austrailia and Japan.

        • Iris says:

          The original series had Italy and Russia. I don’t recall the rest well enough; there might have been more. It was a wonderful series–more romantic than realistic–but very enjoyable. Francis Ng’s sitcom-fashion family in the series was probably my favorite part of all.

        • HeTieShou says:

          Thanks Austin and Iris! I am glad that they did travel for the first series too. I must say that I am also shocked since we all know how cheap TVB is. Did the first installment have good storyline and ending?? Just curious.

        • Puff says:

          First instalment also had cameos from stars like Eason Chan and Twins. It was a bid budget production. Bosco and Nancy were in it too.

        • Austin says:

          The storyline was ok I just thought the romance was a bit much and draggy. The ending was alright too, I personally enjoyed S4 training parts as pilots rather than the romance parts.

        • HeTieShou says:

          Thanks and yea, it is really boring when romance stories are dragged out. My mom complains about that a lot. I like romance stories but hate it when they get too draggy.

      • xin says:


    2. sel_fi_wu says:

      finally triumph2 coming out so happy! waited a long time for this and glad it’s finally airing with the great big cast! chilam and myolie are amazing as brother and sister! hope she rys recognition for her hard part of acting as both happy zoe and the introvert cool tomboy mechanic! breakthrough challenge for myolie! love the trailers!

    3. Mt says:

      The story line is so cliche and cheesy…but I still want to watch it.

    4. char says:

      Too bad they couldn’t get Michelle Ye to come back…

      • HeTieShou says:

        I know and I wonder why they take so long to film a part 2?? When they wait too long, it is even harder to get the original cast to come back. However, it is ok since there is more to a series rather than just the cast.

        • llwy12 says:

          @HeTieShou: Yes, TVB is cheap…but one thing to keep in mind is that the first installment was made prior to tightwad Mona Fong officially taking over the reigns of the company from her husband Uncle Six…that’s why they were able to still do filming in all those exotic locations (TVB used to do that a lot in the 80s and 90s). After Mona took over, a lot of the previous ‘perks’ and ‘benefits’ were cut, including off-site filming – instead, they chose to do majority of the filming at TVB City (hey, TVB spent so much money building their studio in Tseung Kwan O, got to put it to good use, right?). That’s also why the Triumph sequel wasn’t made until now, almost 10 years after the original – sure, TVB says it’s because they couldn’t find an airline to sponsor the series until now, but the real reason is because Mona Fong is finally out of the picture and the new owner Charles Chan is more willing to spend money (luckily he’s not a cheapskate like Mona was)…..probably one of the best things he’s done since taking over is reinstating off-site, on location filming….

        • asdfjkl; says:

          I believe I read somewhere that there were conflict with the airport regarding filming too. So that could’ve been a potential factor in the delay.

        • HeTieShou says:

          Thanks for the info and glad that Mona is out of the picture now(hm… I wonder when Virginia Lok will be? I cannot stand her or hearing about her). They should have more off site filming since it is boring to film at TVB city only.

    5. Austin says:

      It is a pity the original S4 won’t be in this one, they were one of the reasons why so many fans liked the first one. Glad Ron is in here though, looking forward to see how his character has matured throughout the years.

      • GD says:

        yeah, i enjoyed the ron, bosco, kenneth and sammul combination. great chemistry.

        • HeTieShou says:

          They were all in the first installment… I love seeing them all together and too bad Sammul and others could not return for part 2. I want to see part 1 if I can find it. Thanks for the info Austin!!

    6. Funn Lim says:

      “The story of Triumph in the Skies 2 takes place roughly a few years after airline pilot captain Sam (Francis Ng 吳鎮宇) marries Zoe (Myolie Wu 胡杏兒), a passenger service agent who was born with a severe heart condition. When Zoe dies, the introverted and mournful Sam resigns his position as pilot captain and spends a long vacation in England. There, he meets the heartbroken student pilot Holly (Fala Chen 陳法拉), who convinces him to return to Hong Kong to join Skylette Airlines.”

      So, his wife dies of a heart disease, literally and he meets a girl who has her heart broken, figuratively? How imaginative. Kinda like TVB’s way to kill off a major character just to push a plot when can’t they be a bit more imaginative by retaining a character and make new plots?

      Anyway plot summary for TITS2:

      A series about a bunch of high flyers (literally and figuratively) who does not need to worry about money or about career because their careers depicted in the series is just a name for any career that sounds glamarous who will meet up with friends and lovers at exotic expensive locations whilst drinking expensive wines in crowded looking pubs and need only worry about love and nothing else where the ending is everybody who should end up with someone ends up with someone until the sequel kills off the least famous one.

      • llwy12 says:

        @Funn: Hahaha….wait, that plot summary sounds familiar…hey, wasn’t that the summary for Healing Hands? Just change the ‘high flyers’ to ‘doctors’ and there you have it! LOL!

      • Purplegirl says:

        So…this is the plot?? It’s nothing inspirational or interesting. It’s just who is getting paired with who. Anyways, I hope it’ll be good. I really look forward to this series.

      • polypeptide says:

        Nice one. I agree.. killing off Zoe is just a major mistake. Sam and Zoe is a classic pairing…

        Also… this is really cliche, meeting Holly while Sam is mending his broken heart. A forceful way to promote fala i guess..

    7. Iris says:

      Btw, there will be no Solar Airways this time? Only Skylette Airlines now?

    8. GD says:

      looking forward to chilam, elena, him and kenneth.

    9. Shrimpboat says:

      I’m quite interested in seeing how Ron will carry his role since his character is falling in love with a girl who looks like his deceased sister-in-law…AND will remind his older brother of his deceased wife.

      Quite a lot of emotions for Issac and Sam to tackle. Hopefully the writers did it justice and not just a rushed scene of Issac saying, “She doesn’t look like Zoe,” and Sam adding, “It doesn’t matter, I’m in love with Holly now.”

      • sel_fi_wu says:

        ron’s role sounds interesting and he’s fantastic in this type of role as seen in triumph1! he and francis and family are great in there. this will be ron’s great comeback series and he look great in pilot uniform! can’t wait for ron, francis and myolie! tvb has been treating ron badly while shifting resources to raymond lam! time for ron to comeback!

    10. Agnes Tan says:

      Looking forward to watch this series

    11. llwy12 says:

      I may be in the minority, but I actually wasn’t tremendously fond of the original Triumph – true, it was a nice series and probably better than a lot of the series TVB put out after that, but it was a bit overhyped in my opinion. Some parts of the series were way too draggy and parts of the plot ended up being all over the place – the cameos were interesting, but too out of place (the only cameo that blended in and ‘made sense’ was pretty much Eason’s). I also felt the romance part was too draggy – for me, the most enjoyable parts were the ones involving Francis and his family (which we unfortunately won’t get to see anymore, since Shek Sau is with HKTV now) as well as some of the supporting cast (such as the Louisa So/Jerry Lamb relationship for example).

    12. Cm says:

      As long as Francis doesn’t have to speak English in this. He was great in the first series, but anytime he had to speak English I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry!

      • HeTieShou says:

        He spoke English in the first series? I did not watch it so don’t know about it. Was it that bad??

        • Smart Aleck says:

          Yea he had to recite a poem about airplanes… and couldn’t agree more his English is terrible!

        • HeTieShou says:

          Oh my gosh, he actually recited a poem?? Boy, I really need to see part 1.

      • Purplegirl says:

        Loll my favorite part is when he speaks English. He just ramble some words out and I would laugh with my mom so hard that we almost cried. Kinda harsh, but I meant it in a cute way.

        • hideLUN says:

          Do u have link or which episode? Wish to watch back the part he read out the poem bout airplane~

      • Shrimpboat says:

        All their English was bad. Michelle Ye was the only one I could understand.

        • HeTieShou says:

          Michelle was raised and educated in the US so of course her English is good. The rest of them weren’t so I guess we can understand why their English is so bad. I heard that Kate was educated in the US(she went to the same university that I did) but can’t speak English well either. I guess she did not care to learn it.

        • Pi says:

          Kate learnt Japanese, stupid.

        • dd says:

          The classes were taught in English, no?
          And regardless, you need English to live in America.

          I also suggest that you stop this petty name-calling.

        • Pi says:

          Do you go to school? Speaking English in Japanese class? Living within a Chinese community don’t have to speak English. US is the united states and you are stupid enough to unaware about united.

        • dd says:

          >Speaking English in Japanese class?

          ….uh, yes?
          It’s called the language of medium. The most effective way to teach a foreign language is through the learner’s mother tongue.

          If you take a foreign language class in Australia/England/America, they’ll teach it to you using English. If you learnt Spanish in China, they’ll teach it to you in Mandarin Chinese. If you learn English in Japan, they’ll teach it to you in Japanese.

          >Living within a Chinese community don’t have to speak English.
          The point stands that you will need English in university/school. You’ll also need English to buy food, catch public transport, etc.

          >US is the united states and you are stupid enough to unaware about united.
          I don’t get what you’re trying to say.

        • dd says:

          language of tuition, not medium*

        • HeTieShou says:

          Dude, you need to watch your mouth and be careful about what you say. She lived in the US so of course she would need to learn English too. As far as I am concerned, you are the stupid one!!!

        • Pi says:

          Stupid dude, this is the last time I have to enlighten your brainless head. Kate can speak plenty of English sentences to buy food. She learnt Japanese in US in a Chinese community university, she doesn’t need English. In US there are all of languages and community for any people with poor English to live, we call it united. Do you question why Kenneth can’t speak English while he learnt English in Canada? Kate learnt Japanese, her English is too good to Kenneth learnt English. You don’t understand, you are stupid.

        • dd says:

          >She learnt Japanese in US in a Chinese community university

          You’ve got my attention. Can you substantiate this claim?

        • dd says:

          Nevermind, I did it myself:


          Academic history: Undergraduate at the University of California – Berkley Campus (that’s UC Berkley, a famous university that teaches in ENGLISH)

          Areas of specialization: major in Japanese, Spanish minor, marketing

        • dd says:

          Why did I write Berkley when it’s Davis?


        • Smart Aleck says:

          I think the only brain that needs “enlightening” around here is you! If you are going to be posting hate or mean messages around here, then you are not welcomed. By the way, universities here in the U.S. are taught in English no matter what you are learning.

        • Terminator says:

          I guess the ‘life of Pi’ has ended here on this board.

          But somehow I have the suspicious that he/she will be reincarnated and continue his/her trolling ways.

        • dd says:

          All in all his/her timing couldn’t have been worse.

          Would’ve waited maybe 2 weeks to a month before going batsh*t crazy on everyone.

        • HeTieShou says:

          I can see you are another troll so I will not respond to you. In case you did not know, I am an English teacher so of course I would know more than you about these things. I hope you get banned as well because you are RUDE and brainless moron!!

      • llwy12 says:

        @Cm: Hahaha….thanks for bringing this up…it was definitely one of the things that annoyed me most too when I was watching back then (after awhile, I started covering my ears whenever Francis attempted to say anything in English…LOL).

    13. Jackson says:

      woah ray hater,
      you definitely have a lot of time and also HATE! what is wrong with you?

    14. claire says:

      To be honest, not so convincing preview. It’s big gambling by TVB to produce a sequel after 1 decade, huge budget indeed for this pilot romance drama. Too bad TVB can’t call back two of S4 members (Sammul & Bosco), more interesting if the sequel storyline would focus to those 4 guys instead once again Sam with new rival :P

      • Smart Aleck says:

        I loved S4… had a huge crush on Ron back then (: all of them became successful except for him though ):

        • HeTieShou says:

          I would not say that Ron is not successful, but maybe he is a bit below the rest of them. However, he is not totally unsuccessful.

        • Cara says:

          Well, I can see why he’s the least successful when his best role is still…Issac in TITS.

        • Austin says:

          Issac is one of his best roles but so is Chung Lap Man in my opinion.

        • lemongrass says:

          Personally I find his acting hasn’t improved much as compared to the rest. He needs to buck up to show his talents. Besides looks, I find no other reasons for him in acting. Sorry if insulted his fans here, but he has to improve otherwise younger and better looking actors will overtake him. Bet it wouldn’t feel good to start acting holding leading post, and dropping to become kelefe… Ron, jiayou!

    15. Austin says:

      Hope they won’t focus thw whole series onto the romance, I mean most ppl enjoyed the first one was because of the pilot theme. I hope they show more of that instead, no draggy love triangles it’s too cliche in TVB.

      As for S4, given Sammul’s negativity towards TVB it wasn’t really possible to bring him back. I felt like Bosco should of been in this instead of Kenneth if they were to switch but I would love it if they were together. Bosco’s character had more to do with the plot than Kenneth if I remembered correctly. Bosco’s character was the best pilot out of S4 given he won that award after the training. He was the most mature out of the group, I don’t exactly remember if Kenneth’s character had his own story in the first one but either way I don’t think the sequel will surpass the first one but I hope it doesn’t fail either. I’m not too sure about Fala leading, was never too impressed with her previous work. Myolie’s acting has downgraded a lot the recent years, she just doesn’t seem that passionate about her work anymore but that’s just me. I’m glad Nancy has a bigger role here, I think Him will fit in just fine. Hopefully this will be a breakthrough for Ron, that guy has been out of the spotlight for too long. The first installment practically made him a start let’s hope the sequel will have him return to that status.

      • HeTieShou says:

        Good thoughts Austin and I agree that they should not focus too much on love and romance since that can get really draggy and boring. By the way, who was paired up with who in the first installment??

        I had a feeling that Sammul was not going to come back after what happened with TVB. Maybe Bosco did not want to be in it because it would have been awkward with Myolie also in it?? I really wonder…I also hope that Ron can shine in this sequel since he has not been in the spotlight for awhile. Lets hope this new installment will not be a downfall as many sequels are.

        • Austin says:

          The pairings in the first one was a lot of love triangles which I hope to see less of lol there was Joe-Flora, Francis-Flora, Francis-Myolie, Sammul-Michelle, Ron-Michelle, Bosco-Nancy, Louisa-Jerry. Kenneth had a romance too I think but I don’t remember who I remember he was annoyed by her though.

          i think there was already too many ppl in the sequel that’s why they cut Bosco out because I remember Kate was signed on to it as well and she and Bosco was suppose to be a pair and in the end they cut both of them out because there wasn’t enough room for them. Bosco and Myolie are still friends I don’t think they would of minded anyways, they’re professional actors after all. Yeah I feel like it’s been a while Ron has been around, he wasn’t really given much good roles recently.

        • HeTieShou says:

          Thanks for the info Austin! WOW, there were that many pairings in part 1? It actually sounds interesting to me. I have not seen Michelle pair with Sammul yet. I think she and Ron were cute in Lost in the Chamber of Love.

          Maybe Bosco just did not have enough time to be in this one? Yea, I think he and Myolie are both professional so it would not have been too bad. I heard that Ron acts for China now so if you do not watch China productions, then you will not see him as much. I have been watching China series but have not seen him yet so I hope to see him in some.

        • Austin says:

          Yeah once Bosco was out so was Kate because I remember in an interview she said she was ready to film then a couple weeks later they pull both of them out, it would of been nice to see them.

          Yeah I don’t watch China productions because I don’t understand mandarin, but I do know he’s filming there a lot. I don’t think he has any TVB series scheduled to film at the moment.

        • HeTieShou says:

          Do you know why Bosco and Kate got pulled out? I vaguely remember that piece of news but do not remember the details. It is such a pity that they both cannot be in it.

          China series are dubbed in Cantonese so you can still watch it. I highly recommend watching them because China productions can be really good. I have seen many that are good and are way better than TVB these days. I grew up watching TVB but lets face it, they have gone downhill and cannot be as good as before. Eventually they will all go to China so if you want to see them, you should consider watching China series.

        • Austin says:

          It was said that Bosco had a schedule conflict with filming a drama in China but he really wanted to be a part of but the thing is they was starting production in May at he time so he was unavailable but then filming delayed until around summer because of Francis and Bosco was free then, it’s just that they Already cut him out of it so they didn’t bother writing his story into the plot. And since Bosco was out there was no reason for Kate to be in it though she never really confirmed the reason it she was set to film a month before it starts filming then a while after Bosco was pulls out so was she. I hope that doesn’t sound confusing lol

          Yeah some are dubbed in Cantonese but there are some that aren’t, I’ve seen a couple before.

        • HeTieShou says:

          Thanks for the info Austin! I am sure there are many series from China dubbed in Cantonese so you can see them.Luckily, I watch my series in Mandarin so I can see them but not all are good, therefore, I try to select the ones that I think are good to watch. Many series from China are really good but some are really boring and draggy too. But hey, with TVB going downhill these days, we need to watch series from other companies and countries in order to get entertained.

      • Kidd says:

        ” I felt like Bosco should of been in this instead of Kenneth if they were to switch but I would love it if they were together.”

        Yeah, it will be great if both Roy and Chris can be in the series. But, I don’t prefer Chris over Roy. It’s precisely because Roy is so little developed in part 1 that he should be included in part 2 so that his character can be more developed. Roy is also easy to write for scriptwriter because he has little background info from part 1 and the scriptwriter can go any place with him. I just hope the scriptwriter remember the little background he has such as his parents working as cleaners in the airport (irrc).

        Btw, Chris was my fave character in part 1. Smart characters always attract me. :)

        • Austin says:

          Roy’s parents were cleaners at the airport? I thought that was Chris’s mom then she was let go cause she had a back problem in Chris wanted her to stop working. Roy’s dad was a bus driver and his whole family is in the transportation business.

          Yeah I liked Chris too, he was really easy going and intelligent. It would of been great to see him back in the sequel.

        • Kidd says:

          Oops. I misremembered. It’s been so long ago I watch. paiseh paiseh.

        • HeTieShou says:

          I feel so left out when you guys are discussing the first installment. I really hope to watch it. Lets see if I can find it.

        • Austin says:

          ^ Don’t worry about it, you’ll catch up when you watch it. I’m pretty sure it’s online since its a pretty popular series.

          They have it on tvbdo.com

        • HeTieShou says:

          Thanks Austin but I hate watching series online since it is a BIG chore to me. I would prefer to watch on DVDs if I can find it. However, if I can’t find the DVDs then I guess I have no choice.

        @Austin why don’t you just accept the fact that your bosco or chris not included in the sequel along with kate and stop ill wishing on kenneth or wishing that kenneth should be the one out? that’s low sorry. no offense maybe you’re jealous that kenneth is one of the leads in this grand saga and bosco not included.

        • Austin says:

          Lol I don’t think you understood my comment clearly, I just said it would be best if both Bosco and Kenneth are included in this. It’s just that Bosco’s character had a more prominent role in the first installment than Kenneth did, it’s a pity he won’t be in this. That’s what I meant, I never said anything about kicking Kenneth out. I accepted the fact, I’m just saying my opinion without bashing others unlike you.

        • Austin says:

          Besides you’re one to talk if it was Bosco included in this and not Kenneth you would wish he was out, that’s a hypocritical statement from you. While for me I never criticize an artiste besides professionally. Why should I be jealous? I’m not one of the actors in this production besides I could really care less who is really in it, if the series turn out to be great that’s good enough for me. All I meant was that it would be nice if Ron, Kenneth and Bosco was in this since Sammul is not an option, besides they were the main reason why fans love the drama it was the chemistry they had. Read what I wrote carefully before you assume the opposite.

        • HeTieShou says:

          We all know that you hate Bosco and will never pass up a chance to blast him,but now you are attacking Austin?? Austin did not say anything bad about Kenneth or anything. What is up with you hating Bosco? Regardless of what it is, I think it is best for you to let it go….

        • HeTieShou says:

          Totally agree with you and as I always say, there is way more a series than just the cast. I have seen series that are good with an unknown cast since there are definitely way more important factors to a series rather than just the cast. If a series had a good cast but a bad plot/storyline, it ends up not being too good overall. The plot/storyline is the skeleton of a series because without a good one, any series would just drag even with the best cast ever.

        • Austin says:

          Really what is her deal with Bosco? Lol I’ve seen quite a few of her comments regarding about him. Yup I wasn’t attacking Kenneth, I like him as an actor too all I meant was that it would of been nice if Bosco was in this as well but in a way I’m kind of glad he didn’t because then he wouldn’t have been able to film A Change Of Heart which he’s doing really well in right now. Take Born Rich as an example, great cast but bad plot. The cast draws an audience first but if the plot is bad no one would bother watching it no matter how big of a fan you are of a particular actor in it.

        • Abigail says:

          I think he/she is just a “troll”. Welcome to the internetz.

          TIPS: “Trolls” must be ignored. The more you mingle or respond to them, the more they will troll ;)

        • Austin says:

          @Abigail I think so too, I see her on the other forum which I think is the same person since she sounds exactly like her lol she seems like the type that just likes to get off on people arguing with her which is pretty sick. But if she is really speaking her genuine feelings especially about Bosco then something is really wrong with her, her words are too unreasonable of a human being, I never seen anything like this.

        • HeTieShou says:

          I think Born Rich’s plot was ok but could have been a lot better. That is a good example of a great cast but bad plot, which shows how important the plot is for any series.

        • HeTieShou says:

          I have actually seen all walks of life on the net and in real life. We all just have to be careful…

    16. Abigail says:

      Haha Austin, certain people turn into another species behind the shield of online identity. Don’t be surprised that some vocal online personalities are introverts in real life. It happens a lot on the netzz. The one that got banned by Jayne was a pretty scary “troll” wasn’t it.

      • HeTieShou says:

        Oh gosh, that troll was beyond scary. I can’t believe that she would say the things that she did…

      • Austin says:

        Is it the one that cursed about Jayne? Yeah I saw those posts whats up with that haha it’s just that it’s been months since she’s been talking like that and I’m surprised she’s still the same, saying the same thing over and over I mean you would think she would be exhausted by now but guess not.

    17. Larry 3 says:

      This series will flop. I can not guarantee :)

    18. lol says:

      the first series on;y got 37 points its not all that big of a hit but i think we will like to see another francis tv series again

    19. Elle says:

      Why are they killing off Myolie’s character when she’s available to come back – and has – only to make her into a different character? If I was Myolie I would be pretty offended they did that just so Fala can be main female lead.

      • sel_fi_wu says:

        they maybe kill zoey to promote fala there are magazine rumours that fala demanded more screentime and the male leads. but i have faith that myolie can use the new role as her breakhrough since she never has this type of introvert mechanic tomboy before. it’s fresh and she can show her versatility by acting both the cheerful girlish zoey and introvert cool tomboy summer!

    20. Hannahh says:

      Looking forward to see Myolie , Chilam , Kenneth n him him

    21. Melanie says:

      Anyway remember the trailer for triumph in the skies 2 with Raymond and Kate? I was scared when that was first released and now i am relieved. I am happy that francis is coming back and to see chilam :)

      I think the sequel will do just fine in ratings as long as the plot isn’t complicated to understand and moves at a fast pace. The synopsis sounds simplistic. Life is already complex and no one wants to watch more chaos and confusion when trying to relieve the mind.

    22. Guest says:

      Same here. I watched the first one back in Feb ’04 when I was 9. The drama sparked an interest in aviation for me, and since I’ve received my PPL(A) and GPL licenses. Looking forward to the sequel, and hopefully it doesn’t suck :P
