• @diana80 That is disappointing to hear about My Ages Apart being just ok but I will still give it a try for the cast, especially Bobby. His chance of winning Best Actor will be reduced greatly if the drama isn't going to be a great hit. Not every actor can be convincing in serious drama and comedy.
  • @bearbear Yes...Kenneth acted the role of Ma Kwai very well. In fact, Kenneth has been improving lately and i don't mind if he is casted as one of the male lead alongside Bobby for FH4. As for My Ages Apart, it is just ok so far (not as great despite the strong casts). I'm pretty much watch it for Bobby and Louis' funny scenes...and some of Moses' too. I'm fine for Bobby to win the TV King (if not Kenneth) this year because he is indeed a good actor and his acting is always very natural.
  • @bearbear I can say the exact same thing about Kenneth Ma from HK. He is always boring no matter what kind of role he plays. The face itself spells BORING. Sometimes just a vibe has nothing to do with physical appearance sometimes.
  • War of Genders, Kindred Spirit and Virtues of Harmony are my favourite although I began to lose interest in KS and VoH towards the end. There is also Happy Harmony (餐餐有宋家)。Remember I was hoping to see Louis Koo and Jessica Hsuan pairing up in it but Louis' character disappeared as he had to film ROCH. Regardless, Jessica Hsuan and Vincent Lam were quite funny when they realized that they liked each other.
  • @wm2017 Totally agree with you. For the longest time I just can't figure out why I am never interested to catch his drama series. Not attracted to his looks but there are average looking actors whom I like for their acting and versatility and he is not ugly or good looking, like you mentioned.
  • @diana80 Yes, FH1 was good for its cases and the cast. Bobby wasn't his usual comedy role and portray the character well. Yoyo and he were comfortable as a couple. I dropped FH3 after a few episodes, it was boring despite the leading cast. I also enjoy watching Kenneth in his latest drama. He's quite convincing as a taxi driver, isn't he? :) Haven't watched My Ages Apart so can't comment but Bobby is a good actor and deserves more recognition.
  • @coralie Agree with Go Princess Go, Wuxin: The Monster Killer, Nirvana In Fire, Scarlet Heart, Empresses in the Palace. Wuxin 2 has been released. Haven't watched it yet, heard that while it is not as good as 1, it is still watchable. Caught episode 1 of River God, another China web drama, seems interesting so likely to continue with it.
  • @bearbear I was re-reading an interview that Susanna had done back in the 80s where she said that she and her husband are like twins -- where one goes, the other follows. She also said that in all the years they've been together, they've never had an argument, not even once...she said they love being in each other's company and whenever they both didn't have to work, they would stay home and play games together: chess, checkers, Chinese checkers, even 2-person mahjong! They were truly soulmates in every sense of the word, which makes it even sadder now, as I'm sure Samuel feels like part of his life was taken away...(I'm getting teary-eyed again just thinking about it...)
  • @llwy12 Saw the interview, it was so sweet. He also shared his fear of needles but let her poked two needles into his forehead when she was studying to be a Chinese physician and was practicing acupuncture. Reporters still had pictures of them holding hands in public a few years ago. It must have been awfully hard for him right now. She's my favorite middle aged Wong Yung and her role in Chor lau heung'79 is one of my favourite characters in the drama serial. RIP
  • @bearbear Yes you are right. Their roles in MBF was a huge mistake. Not like them at all haha. I still prefer him in forlorn and cool roles haha.
  • @nigel I am one of the minority who prefers Ah Man. There were discussions back in those days supporting Tong Sum and Ah Man and why he should end up with who, hahaha.
  • @tiffany @nigel did they come up with that "opening" ending at the bar in DIF IV since Tsui Fei would go back to his ex girlfriend anyway? Or did they suggest that he should go back to his ex girlfriend? Both LJ didn't quite fit the roles in MBF. He is not the laid back cop material, neither is she the shy, rural girl. Besides, the plot was quite pointless, the ending even more so. The only good thing that came out from it was that they ended up together and the themesongs by Sammi were quite good. Yes, no fault of hers as she was sick to cut back the screen time in ASITP. Their romance development would probably be less choppy than it was. He was basically dealing with politics and into his modern-times-lookalike love interest when suddenly, JH saved him and they became a couple.Their flirty prior to that was a weak twist leading to this love development. As for the ending, even her giving him his only son didn't appease fans that he had two wives and he was more into his other wife (or maybe his modern times girlfriend), lol.
  • @bearbear @nigel MBF was a joke lol Even Louis couldn't save it. DIF4 - Louis and Jessica came up with the ending. Went for that bittersweet feeling, which caused quite an uproar back then. They succeeded since fans still remembered lol ASITP - Jessica was sick during filming; hence, Sonija's screen time increased. Louis and Jessica's relationship was also poorly developed.
  • @bearbear You know what I have to agree with you that all 3 collab sucked. 1st one - Coz the ending was super, duper stupid. 2nd - Yeah, didn't like the fact that Jessica had to share him with Sonia emm :( 3rd - I didn't like Louis in that role. It just doesn't suit him. I still prefer him as Tsui Fei. haha. He was so cool-looking. He looked best in forlorn roles haha
  • @nigel I haven't heard about that. A friend told me years ago that he was a player. Regardless, really hope to see both of them pairing up again. Their 3 collaborations have not been very satisfying - Comparing to the earlier installments, DIF IV cases were of substandard. It should have just been given a different name, rather than banking on the popularity of the series. And they didn't even end up together. A Step into the Past was good but the romance, especially between them, was passable and though the drama removed most of his wives in the novels, he still had two (but it was a time traveling period drama, men were entitled to have a harem). As for Man's Best Friend, probably would have given a miss if they weren't a couple in it.
  • @bearbear indeed that is wishful thinking but seriously their chemistry is just so amazing. I cannot verify this but a friend told me that Louis is a gay so that would definitely be impossible.
  • I'd love seeing them pairing up again on TV or in movie. They have always been my favorite onscreen couple, the other being Bobby and Esther. Would be better if Louis and JH becomes a couple in real life although that is wishful thinking on my part.
  • @melia880 Agree. It gets irritated whenever actors/actresses or their fans whine about how much hard work they have put in yet viewers don't give them the chance or don't recognize their efforts. It's like they are the only ones working hard. A toilet cleaner earning much lesser than a leading actress is also working hard daily so what makes her so special that we have to be overlook her consistently bad acting since the beginning?
