• @jayne Yea, this has been more of Nancy crushing on Ruco vibe to me too.
  • @blest62 I see them as dating co-workers. TVB is a work environment for them. They see each other days in and days out. It's not unusual for them to start dating each other. Celebs in 80s/90s married other celebs in the cirlce; e.g. Julian, Nick C., Tony L., Jacky C., etc. It's not a new "trend."
  • Holy wow, ID'd by blurry pics of his fingers xD This is cra-cra fan at a whole new level, lol. And whoever wrote this article must be hurting for story. What a non-story story xD I'm amazed...
  • @jjwong I don't care too as long as he acts well in the dramas he has been roped in to unleash his prescribed roles. Looks like most or a few actors in TVB circuit have gone for beauty queens. Wondering whether it is the norm whenever opportunities come their way. Or it's a publicity gimmick. Adding value to one's acting career going north so to speak!
  • @janet72 number of days isn't the issue imo. It's number of times they "do" in those days. If they really up for the challenge, should do multiple times a day; assuming they both physically able and willing of course xD
  • @llwy12 heh. I finished TMB. It's a very decent series. Very under-rated. I did like Bottled Passion up until the end, which made absolutely no sense and very hair-pulling, wtf moment xD Side note: Raymond W. is really good at that kind of role: a righteous, love strucken, puppy xD
  • @blest62 what on-screen chemistry? :p I still don't see what most sees and dubs them have great chem om Fists. They both acted well, but chem? No for me. Anyways, why is this chic styled/styling his outfits? She works for TVB costumes dept or something? Also, he seemed to be annoy (rightly so) and less savy with his answers to the media. He used to be very "hac hac hey hey." Now he's more direct and "gtfo of my way." IDC as long as he can still act well :)
  • @jjwong LOL...thanks for the lowdown on Tiger Mom Blues....however that was a series that I actually did watch, albeit not in its entirety (gosh, can't even remember the last time I watched a TVB series in its entirety -- I think the last one was Bottled Passion back in 2011?). As I said elsewhere, Tiger Mom Blues was a pretty decent series and even though I only watched half of it, I enjoyed most of what I watched. Finally, after years of churning out mostly rubbish series, TVB comes out with a series that is realistic, relatable, and altogether worth watching despite the series' many many flaws (though whether they will be able to keep up the momentum is doubtful).
  • @llwy12 Yea, I basically stopped at eps 5. I’m busy with Tiger Mom Blues instead. You should give it a try if you haven’t seen it. It’s decent, slice of life, somewhat relatable and enjoyable plot. I’ve love/hate feel for both Ben and Elena characters; they’re both great, making me sympathized with their “hard neck” attitude. If someone else were in their shoes, I bet I would’ve hate the characters. (Just imagine Sharon as Elena *shudders*). I even don’t mind the youngins, except the guy (Hayden) needs to learn how to emote. Hayden would’ve been an “idol” character if the actor was better. (I think the guy who plays Hugo is much cuter btw xD) I even don’t mind their cutesy, teenage pooper love/crush thing. It’s the same “swan song” but it’s not done OTT and it’s relatable/realistic-ish. Koni is pretty good, a little cringe but not over the edge. The weakest link is Sharon. She seemed dull (not just because of her character) and bored; maybe she was tired from the baby. IDK, she’s like a Kate Tsui to me. Started out okay in their careers, but then went downhill overnight! Anyways, there’s your unsolicited rundown of the series xD
  • @jjwong All valid points, lol. I'm still holding out hope that TVB will surprise me and throw in a twist that is truly a twist (like Fred not actually being Gallen's son despite portraying himself to be), but I highly doubt it. I do think that the no romance thing between Gallen and Ali might be true though, since I read some stuff about the plot that seems to support this, but again, never know what made the final cut and what didn't (plus TVB's scripts are never complete when filming so some plot points could've changed during filming). Raymond will definitely come back, but doesn't seem likely that he will be the big boss or whatever. But we'll see once they start getting around to talking about his disappearance (which has only been hinted at up to this point). Ha..to be honest, I'm not sure if I'll follow through either. Already started to lose interest, plus I think I already missed like an episode or two due to the 7 day airing thing that TVB does now (and I'm not motivated enough to go watch the episodes I missed on encoreTVB either -- every time I go on there, I gravitate toward re-watching the old series from the 80s/90s that they have on there instead, lol).
  • @funnlim that's 19 eps, practically the whole series lol xD Forgot what year it started in but I pretty much can watch first few eps and last eps of a series and stipl get the jist of the story. TVB is notorious about their fluffy middle. @bubbles23 Oh yas! I did enjoyed STL lots. One series in a long time that I didn't cringe at the romance. Out of all their pairings (Raymond and Priscilla), I like them in STL the best. Their development seemed natural and not OTT. Yes, there were still some cheesy, only in TVB set up but they were well done. @canadian That's typical TVB laziness when it comes to their villains. The only possible way they can ever explained why a person is bad is they're mentally disabled. Just as how overused the twin concept and baddies sex change -_-;
  • @jjwong Give it 16 episodes plus 3 more. Don't give up before 16.
  • @jjwong Blur as is "What am I doing here? Who are all these people? Am I supposed to be hear? Jet lag! Jet lag!"
  • @jjwong @funnlim Agree that DN is pretty good. But it could have been a bit more fast paced. Ayyy Swipe Tap Love fan! I just finished rewatching it. Tiger mom Blues was also a pretty solid drama :)
  • @funnlim Rly? I had gave it a pass bc of the cast. Hrm... Maybe I'll give one or two eps a go. I'm actually watching Tiger Mom Blues atm. I like it. Enjoy everyone's performance thus far. The slice of life story ain't bad either. This might be my new "swap, tap, love" where it was lowkey and underrated but so deserve some sort of recognition.
  • @funnlim Hrm, rly? I usually hear the opposite where celebs are much better looking on screen than IRL. KM is at a disadvantage if he's the opposite, ha. What do you mean by he was "looking rather BLUR?" Like 'mun mun cha cha', just woke up, drowsy, ditzy face?
  • @jjwong Seen him in person very very upclose and after from looking rather blur, as in like he's blur, he is actually in person very handsome and about physically right. Just on TV he looks a tad big.
  • Was KM ever have "good looks"? He looks goofy and dorky from start. Lol. His best chance of taking his career to the next level was On Call. I think his ship is sailed. It'll be hard for him to find another hit character like that one. I don't think he'll make in the movie wolrd either. Anyways, hope him and Jacqueline blossom and bear fruits. Everyone needs love! :)
  • Eh, Kevin was never a "masculine and macho" to me. He was more of a pretty boy like a member of a young boy band.
  • @llwy12 The spoiler ain't much of one since by eps 2 or 3 or whenever they revealed Gallen's flashback, I'm like yup, father and son. More of a twist if like Fred is not his son but his son boyfriend xD Now TVB, that would be a surprissse lol. Doubtful. Or maybe Fred is the son's neighbor who stole the identity, shout out to Gallen's old series. Ha. So 5 eps in, I'm still meh. Fred is so dull. He can't be savvy or cute. He doesn't have the look or built. He really can't carry. Then again, I'm still optimistic that TVB gave him a chance. LikeI said, if he starts as a supporting role, TVB will never turn him lead. Now that he snatched it, hopefully he's smart and try to stay by improving and doing something wow-ing. Thus far, he suck. Ali is also meh. The two chics are meh too. I like Jacky (he seems buff-er?). Jonathon is eeeeh his same wanna-be-cool self with monotone (except when he's mad). He needs more expressive scenes rather then the cool guy; frankly tired of that image of him. Jacqueline is also okay so far, didn't have much to act yet. I really hope it's true about no romance between Gallen and Ali. TVB would be doing something different for a change. I feel like Raymond Cho will come back toward the end and he's the big boss somehow. Loke you said, he's a BSA after all. And no death is final in TVB world. They always have a way to resurrect someone, lol. Eh, IDK if I'll follow through. Probably let it all air then turn it on as background noise.
