“Highs and Lows” Premieres at 33 Points

TVB police drama, Highs and Lows <雷霆掃毒>, opened to good reception on Monday, September 24. The premiere episode averaged 31 points, peaking at 33 points.

Cast members, Michael Miu (苗僑偉), Ben Wong (黃智賢), Elaine Ng (吳綺莉), Ella Koon (官恩娜), and the crew met for dinner to watch the first episode over dinner. Ordering thirty-six crabs per table, the group wished that the ratings would soar to 36 points.

“We have confidence in the series. We don’t know if it can reach 36 points, but there are many compelling reasons to watch the drama,” Michael said. Raymond Lam (林峯) will be portraying a cop for the first time in his acting career. Leaked spoilers regarding Kate Tsui’s (徐子珊) “Drug Queen” and tragic fate have fueled online discussions regarded the challenging role, improving her opportunity in the TV Queen race.

Raymond Lam was absent from the Highs and Lowsdinner since he had already flown to Beijing for another promotional engagement.

Responding to Raymond’s comments that Michael is very “chok” and “man,” Michael laughed, “He is over-praising me! Who can be more ‘chok’ than Raymond? When he refers to me as being ‘man,’ does he mean that I’m older than him? A young man should know what is the proper way to speak. The premiere episode is now broadcast and he’s not seen anywhere! He’s lacking loyalty!”

Michael joked, “The bill is Raymond’s! I don’t know who is supposed to treat for dinner. No one paid, so I footed the bill. As long as everyone is happy.”

      I agreed, Michael is hot!
      At first when I saw that he grew a beard, I thought it makes him look older but actually he looks really hot and “chok”.

        Yes, the facial hair definitely makes Michael look more “chok” and “man”!

    yay for Michael Miu, the original ‘chok’ king. Raymond has no game compared to Michael.

    Michael looks very manly and handsome in this series.. i love his side-buzz cut and the hip glasses. Goes to show that men are like fine wine..they get better with age.

      LOL, some men age like fine wine. But MM is definitely one of them. I find him much more attractive and masculine than loads of TVB’s younger siu sangs.

        Oh, quote from 3 Gor himself: “does he mean that I’m older than him? A young man should know what is the proper way to speak.”

        Can change a little to you, unless you are not a young man.

        @fox, oh i’m sorry but raymond still sucks.quote from CYF “speaking hard doesn’t mean you are not polite”,you can blame if you cant stand with my comment. but for me its just freedom of speech.

      • Fox replied:

        I don’t care that you think LF is sucked, don’t be worried. You can think he is watever you want, not my business. Just that 3 Gor dun like to be old, lolz. Your comment is making him old, so he won’t feel happy with you :P.

        In case you don’t understand, I teased you in the above comment.

    If this drama is as good as the trailer has shown, then I believe it can beat WI as the highest rate drama of the year.

      I have my bets that it will beat out WI. The first 2 episodes were already really good!

    Yes I love a police drama and this one seems to be getting better every episode! From the spolier hope Michael is not the traitor. Not a big fan of Kate but she looks good in the first few episodes.

    I really don’t care about any of the male stars on TVB, but when M.Miu shows up, I don’t miss it. I so love him that I wished I will shed a tear when he isn’t on TV anymore (I’m hetero-male).

    How the hell Raymond Lam survive when he goes over to car to stop it without further damage to his body. Just a scratch to his forehead. I really don’t think he could survive the impact in ep 1.

    Kate still sucks in this series. Overdoing it with her face, outfit, dialogue, etc.

    This is very similar to “Lives of Omission”, pace of this series seems face. Some parts are boring with Micheal Miu and Jackie Chen’s mistress divorce… Not interested really in family affairs in a cop series on the cop side
