• I will check this series out for sure. It's one of my favourite wuxia of all-time. I can deal with the annual re-makes and "lesser" beauties as I am certain that this series will be better than anything that TVB churns out these days yet there are still plenty that watches TVB here.
  • @anon “High school play” is actually a compliment. Anthony Wong put it best when he said that compared to outside, TVB’s series are essentially “kindergarten productions.” So true!
  • @anon "Most of the TVB series churning out these days are worse than a high school play. It’s pretty freakin sad." TVB doesn't really seem to inject a lot of resources to produce high quality series. Its strategy in recent months seems to be just buy productions produced outside. It is a less risky move to buy critically acclaimed Mainland series or air other Hong Kong web series produced by Shaw Brothers. I suspect its strategy for 2018 will remain the same. TVB will continue to produce some series to meet local HK viewers' preferences, but it is not about to put a lot of cash behind its series. It seems happy to just cast amateur actors and produce B-grade or subpar dramas to fill its time slots.
  • @anon I thought I was the only who thought so. In the beginning I was very happily chasing episode by episode. After Ron Ng's dad went to jail it really became much more boring. I skipped thru 20's and not chasing anymore. I think they just can't find good scriptwriters or something that's why they are doing these cop series, it's like they really can't come up w/anything else these days. Garbage is cruel but it's truly what it is on some of these series these days.
  • This drama started going downhill after episode 7 or so when the story lost focus on Hugo Ng, instead focused on Ron which had the worst plot compared with the rest. Many twists and turns don't even make sense (typical TVB). I've caught up to Ep. 28 so far, Hugo's character pretty much vanished by now. Hugo and Christine's story have the best backstories, they should focus more on those characters rather than Ron's pathetic flings and his quick temper (typical TVB) It's your better than average TVB drama series for sure. Christine Ng's acting is good. Hugo's is solid as usual. Everybody else is just playing to their usual typecasted roles. I think the compliments are less deserving than it should. Afterall, it's 2018, this is the quality that audience should expect from EVERY TVB series. This is by no mean a great drama, but it is watchable for most. Most of the TVB series churning out these days are worse than a high school play. It's pretty freakin sad. I have no clue why anyone is watching them still. No words can describe how garbage it is.
  • @anon I already know I am a genius, but thank you. Well, my point also is proven and thanks to @hetieshou for such a wonderful comment as well. There is a reason why you don't see many comments here about older women dating younger men. It is frowned upon more than older men dating younger women, especially in Asian countries. I rest my genius case, lol.
  • @anon From what I know, Uyghurs ARE mixed! You believe everything you read on Wikipedia? I can tell you that I am into DNA testing and all and even I am heavily mixed and did not realize it. You can identify as being a certain ethnicity but when it comes down what you truly are, you will be astonished and surprised. Even looking at her face, you can tell she is mixed. I have a friend who identifies as Vietnamese but one look at my friend, everyone can tell she is mixed.
  • @anon @msxie0714 Good to know that she is not mixed. She's cute for sure :)
  • @hetieshou Uyghurs are NOT mixed. They are their own ethnicity. Just because they look Eurasian, that doesn't mean they are mixed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uyghurs
  • @bubbletea I was basing it on from past responses here, genius. Typically if a similar article was posted about an older man dating a younger woman, most of the responses here would be calling for the guy's head. At the time of my original post, nobody was calling her names. That was my point!
  • @anon which planet you from??? It is more frowned upon when older women date younger men, than when older men date younger women, and that is a worldwide trait. It is worse in Asia though. A lot of men, even celebs, in Asian countries refuse to date older women because of the stigma and ridicule attached to them dating older women.
  • Interesting how it's accepted when older women date younger men but condemned when older men date younger women. The double standard....
  • @anon Oscar's role as a twisted killer is a refreshing change. Ron still plays the 冲动 police officer....boring. Joel shouldn't have been killed off so soon. Michael Wong's Cantonese sounds weird. My favourite is Michael Miu.
  • @littlefish @anon Unfortunately, there aren’t that many veterans worth watching in Flying Tiger, at least not in the main roles. Aside from Michael Miu and Eddie Cheung, the only other veteran worth tuning in for is Hugo Ng, however with that said, he had a much bigger and “badder” (and all around better developed) role in OCTB so not watching him in this series doesn’t really matter IMO. I would honestly much rather watch the veterans in OCTB, especially since most of them were not only formidable actors/actresses in their own right, they were also artists whom we hadn’t seen back on HK television screens in a LONG time (I’m talking 20+ years for some of them).
  • @anon that sounds quite disappointing but I would still check it out and possibly stick to it because of the veteran actors
  • The plot is typical recycled TVB garbage. I admit that I am watching this drama, but not for the story, rather for the acting of veteran actors (Eddie Sheung, and Hugo Ng). Ron Ng, Bosco Wong, and Michael Miu are playing the same characters at TVB for the past 15 years (yes I know this is a Shaw Brother's production, they own TVB). Ron's acting hasn't improved at all since he left TVB - plays the same hot-tempered character in every cop drama. Bosco's role is more or less the same, nothing out of the ordinary. Joel's role is surprising as he died off faster than anticipated. Oscar is getting more screen time than I thought. Honestly, it's 2018............. plot-wise, they are nowhere near international-standard yet... OCTB 2017 FTW!
  • What's with the shaming of the guy? No one knows the whole story. For all we know, he could've said from the beginning that he didn't want marriage but Elaine persisted in changing him. After 3 years, she finally gave up. This scenario is so common. Yet it's Mr Cheng's fault? I am not saying that this is what happened, but it is plausible.
  • @peachyogurt That's better than being in a marriage that he doesn't want to be in while having an extramarital affair.
