• @jjwong Unfortunately, looks like TVB is going to continue to celebrate this series because I just saw the ratings report and it averaged 26 points, which is pretty high for today’s standards. And there was already talk earlier about a sequel….well, I guess this means a sequel will definitely be in the works now with the “high” ratings and “good” word-of-mouth…(ARGH!). And please TVB, stop using the history angle to justify your script. Everyone knows that your scripts are rarely ever true to history so let’s stop with trying to use historical context to justify / cover up / excuse poor storyline. I don’t know if you guys saw the promo trailer for FV back when it aired, but the one that they kept showing here in the U.S. was of Louisa So in a modern outfit (black and white pantsuit) with hair cut short walking around the village which had been destroyed. I think Katy Kung was in the promo too with the same modern clothes. The commentary in the background was something along the lines of women fighting for their rights and abandoning tradition and triumphing in the end. I don’t know about you but to me, that promo is implying that the women uprising succeeds in the end and they fast forward to the modern era where the women are the ones calling all the shots and such. But obviously, that is not what occurred with this series. So does this count as false advertising then? As I’ve said before, I really wish there were false advertising laws in HK like there are here in the U.S. – that way, TVB can’t continually get away with this kind of crap where they do some bogus promo trailer that “advertises” one thing but the plot is something else entirely. I remember they did the same thing many years back with Witness Insecurity where the promo trailer (here in the U.S. at least) was this dramatic blood and gore thing of people jumping off rooftops left and right….and turns out the series wasn’t about that at all…no doubt TVB was trying to use some hyper-dramatic trailer just to attract viewers and then deliver something else entirely.
  • @jjwong I don’t plan on watching this but I’m curious to see if the rumors are true about TVB cutting the series down to 15 episodes in order to cut out as many of Flora’s scenes as possible. If they did cut, then not worth watching at all, especially if the story no longer makes sense.
  • Flora looked aged even in M Club series, which I looked forward but was disappointed how little screen time she had. That being said, I definitely look forward seeing Flora in this series. This is not an idol series. She doesn't need to be young and sexy. She just needs to act well, something she always does IMO. Also it seems to have good cast: her, Ben and Waise. Woot!
  • This is one rubbish and falsely advertised as woman power, feminists, gender equality series. This has NOTHING to so with anything above. At the end of the day, women did nothing to earn respect, saved no one nor the village, and showed no unity, smarts or changes. The women should've physically against the evading thieves or strategize a plan to fight them off. All were done by men, Raymond and what's his name. The ending should be the women leaving the village, having their own career and coming back to a ruined and abandoned village because, let's be real, no one (men) is gonna instantly change and respect and love somone (someone) overnight. SMDH. I've been fooled! >_<
  • @bubbletea @passingby @jjwong I guess no matter how much fame and money he have, he will still crave for more. A greedy person like him will never be satisfied despite having everything. These pathetic, money grubbing fame seeker is probably going to spend the rest of his life chasing after fame and fortune.
  • I didn't think she was chubby nor had "baby fat." She was already slim and had a healthy image then too. Now she's like another HK anorexic girl. She doesn't look healthy. But if she IS healthy, then good for her. She looks much older now too. Her new image doesn't fit the bubbly characters she portraits. She doesn't seem natural when speaking her lines BUT she does seem like she's at least trying and taking criticisms and improving on them.
  • @jimmyszeto very pointless article indeed. Also, the prices they compared are 2018 vs 2014. Apples and oranges.
  • @jjwong "Poor girl. She kept getting pound with ridiculous bad image news. She must had pissed someone important or related to media off. It’s like if she sneeze, they will said she’s patient 0 of bird flu. That is so true. The HK press seems determine to paint her as a flirt, boyfriend stealer or homewrecker. Even when she's doing something nice, like buying food and cooking for a female friend (who is also in entertain industry), the reporter feel to need to imply that she's shoe-polishing or buying affection.
  • @jjwong JL is very quick-witted, funny and articulate. That in itself makes up for a lot of faults in her. Her "faults" becomes endearing qualities instead. Makes me wanna go take some improv lessons to learn how to be funnier
  • Poor girl. She kept getting pound with ridiculous bad image news. She must had pissed someone important or related to media off. It's like if she sneeze, they will said she's patient 0 of bird flu. Dude, they worked and won for the same series. He wont Best Actor, the most prestige award of the whole ceremony (though I find the whole ceremony is useless). Of course she wouldn't want to miss his speech to show her co-worker support. If she looked at the ceiling, there would be an article about her disrespectful or even jealous attitude. Smh. Her attitude/behavior reminds me Jennifer Lawrence. Ditzy. Clumsy. Immature-ish. No poise. Though US globs up JL like the most freshest thing. HK casts SC into 18th floor of hell. Lol.
  • @jjwong I think it’s more a matter of things have gotten so bad at TVB that Liza HAS TO say something in order to not lose face. Anyone who has a brain can see that TVB has issues, yet TVB management has continued to stick their heads in the sand and pretend that nothing is wrong (and those who are contracted to them or rely on them have to go along with it -- Liza is one of the few who doesn’t have to go along with it if she doesn’t want to). To be real honest though, Liza is technically “late to the party” already, as both Eric Tsang and Dodo Cheng had already spoken up about similar issues before (and they are the 2 top tier veterans at TVB aside from Liza). And I actually agree with Liza’s husband Law Kar Ying in that Liza wasn’t severe enough – it honestly came across like she was half-joking, which means TVB won’t take it seriously (or it could be that TVB doesn’t care anymore and will only hear what they want to hear because after the ceremony when all the artists were still standing there on the stage, TVB’s management actually gave a few speeches and I believe it was Virginia Lok who actually quoted from Liza’s speech, but ignored everything except for the “we are proud to be TVB employees” part, lol).
  • @jjwong she must have been losing power at tvb. money and power changes people, reducing money and power will turn people against you as well.
  • @jjwong Maybe they are trying to convince TVB to have better working conditions to instil more loyalty so that the younger ones will stay on in HK?
  • @jjwong I agree and hope that the media allows her to live the rest of her life well. She has already suffered a lot so at least allow her to live the rest of her life in peace and quiet. If she is ready to come out to get some justice then I am sure everyone will support her.
  • @jjwong The feeling I get is he is divorcing her because she truly wants to be with someone else. I think he even implied that she cheated on him many times and not just that one time. She seems to not care that she hurt him ,his parents and their daughter. Yes she seems to flaunt the affair too. I read some of her text messages and boy she seems like a bad woman. I wonder how they got a hold of their text messages? Her mom even defended her after this affair. My late mom would have killed me if I were married and cheated on my husband. Like mother like daughter.
  • I wonder what makes Liza changed of heart and went off on TVB? I agree it's a good thing that she did and I'm totally on board that TVB needs to treat their workers (not just the actors/actresses) better, but she hasn't done it before and has been very supportive of TVB. So what happened?
  • Again, I must not be watching the same series... When was there a suspense in the story line? Which character is intriguing? O_O I do enjoy watching Raymond on screen. But one, his character is being overshadowed. His character hasn't done anything impact-ful. And two, I bet Apple-Colada will only have max 2-3 episodes of actual fruit market scene or fruit market topic.

  • @jjwong true! I guess she only wants peace for the rest of her life. I feel pity for her, such a great actress with unique beauty.
  • Agree that everyone needs to leave her alone and give her own life some privacy. If she wants and able to come out, then support her. If she is stable now, let her be. This is one of those: the king is not rush but the eunuchs are.
