• @boomer That's a bit harsh. It's normal to forget the details of series, especially such a purposely confusing one, a year later.
  • Looking forward to this but it's gonna be very hard to live up to the first instalment. If the writing will be even 80% as good as the first one I'll be happy. Also very glad that Nicole Wan will be in the sequel, much deserved recognition. Does the inclusion of Katy and Zoie mean Mandy is not going to be in the sequel? Shaun-Katy doesn't feel like a suitable pair but let's see how it'll go.
  • @boomer Tiffany wore a similar sheer glittery dress before but this one is a lot better!
  • @boomer I love Kelly too, but I thought this year her outfit was not sexy compared to last year.. She was in a black cross top gown which was eye catching, what was different this year was her color choice in pink I think when everyone was white or black...
  • Kelly looks amazing!!! Even more gorgeous than usual. Her outfit has such good fitting and I love the look - unique, refreshing colour and very elegant! Perfect for her. Yoyo also looks amazing. Definitely the most head-turning of the night. I also think Tiffany pulls off her dress with her tall and fit figure. (And did she wear it before or did I remember wrongly?)
  • This is the first time that none of the wins were undeserving. Maybe I'm biased because pretty much all the winners were who I wanted to win, including Best Drama! Only slightly sad that Brutally Young didn't get any recognition.
  • In what world was there great feedback??? It was the worst thing I've seen from TVB in a while. The 5.1 rating on douban also says something. The only reason for the high viewership is its lucky airtime during the worst of the pandemic restrictions.
  • @boomer the tvb paradox: small production have better storylines but crappy sets and cinematography; blockbusters have the big celebrities but horrible character development/ plots. They just cannot have both. The ratings this year are too dependent on the covid situation in HK... I really hope LW3 does poorly just cause I don't want it to win Best Drama.
  • I hope Line Walker 3 and Legal Mavericks 2 don't make it into the top 10 ratings. So that Brutally Young can stay at #10. That was such a good drama. I just re-watched it again. LM2 was good, I enjoyed it - I thought it was better than the first one actually. LW3 on the other hand was bad. Plot was all over the place and too many 'main' characters. TVB's big productions always disappoint.
  • @boomer Convergence of all the UCs in the TVB universe ha ha ha indeed. But to be honest, when The Defected aired last year, I kept thinking that could be a sub-plot of Line Walker and Benjamin's character's backstory or something, Bingo is just too good to pass up for LW. Oh well, a'lil bit lame but at least wish came true haha. Very interesting to see Michael Tse joining too, but come on the introduction could be more creative, at least choose something different from Kenneth's introduction in LW2. Wait, does that make Michael part of the Ngai brotherhood??!! If Joseph Zeng could be revived, I want to see Kobe revived too. Surely, by that time no one will remember Pakho's CCP insult right? So let's fix the 'plot hole' and bring his character back too. SERIOUSLY THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!!!
  • @boomer yes my personal favorite is BY, nothing can top a good storyline and Vivien's acting was a highlight. My other favourites are LAD and Of Greed and Ants. You should continue DBZ imo, the end is sentimental. Airport Strikers is such a joke, why do they bother filming these....
  • @bubbles23 It'll all come down to viewership. That's how TVB has determined it's Best Drama for the past few years. I don't know which would be worst though - LW2 winning, or FH4 or Airport Strikers winning lol. The latter 2 currently have the highest viewerships of the year but were both absolutely atrocious to me. My favourite series this year is Brutally Young but it definitely won't win, so I'm rooting for Al Cappuccino which I really enjoyed even though it had several big flaws. I watched several episodes of DBZ but didn't continue till the end, which is rare for me. Just lost interest for some reason. I'm gonna watch LM2 and I hope it'll be good.
  • @tt23 hahahaha yes exactly, the character is so fluff. I think Kenneth tried his best but his evil expressions are a bit OTT and when it comes to gentle/sad parts he just defaults to his puppy eyes expression and I can't take him seriously lmao. Agreed about Owen, something about him/his portrayal of the character just draws me in. He brought a charisma to an otherwise nondescript character I feel. Which is why I thought he was a semi-major character. When he went to prison I was expecting that storyline to continue somewhere down the line but it just ended, wtf indeed.
  • @anon I find that some small productions have had great scripts (supported by good performances by a non-star studded cast), like Barrack O'Karma and Brutally Young. Then ironically the super hyped and promoted huge productions end up disappointments.
  • @boomer I was still cutting him some slack for his subpar acting in BWD but honestly he's such an embarrassment of a "best actor". Awful character development on top of one dimensional acting in this drama. And people thought Moses was bad in LW2 lol, KM is 10x worse.
  • @boomer I don't have hopes for TVB scripts period. TVB can't write a decent script to save their life, but what I can count on are Raymond, Michael Tse, Charmaine Sheh and Philip's acting.
  • @boomer @bubbles23 he literally was like “I am not going to be Ngai tak lai” for two episodes and then one conversation and he’s all “I am ngai tak lai!!!!!!” Like what???? So annoying. Kenneth is killing this series for me with his facial expressions and hair. Owens story was random but his acting really made me like the story but then it just ended like wtf??? It’s not confusing to me because they finished one story before the next but none of it ties into each other seamlessly and that’s the problem.
  • @anon I LOLed when they brought out Laughing Gor and Bingo in the last 10 minutes, they are really dead set on making LW4 a convergence of all the UCs in the TVB universe lmao. I don't have high hopes though, if the writing is gonna be like LW3 - even having a bunch of good actors can't save a bad script. And oftentimes too many stars dilutes the focus...
  • @bubbles23 Gosh his character is so badly written. That whole dual identity thing was ridiculous. I was pleasantly surprised at first when they revealed midway that he actually didn't want to live out his 'destiny' as Ngai Dak Lai, then out of nowhere he suddenly can't bear not to fulfil his destiny of continuing the Ngai legacy. Ok fine. But when people start finding out he is Ngai he starts killing everyone to keep his identity a secret. Dude make up your damn mind. And Kenneth's acting also didn't help.
  • @boomer completely agree. it got really boring after ep 20. Kenneth ruined the series for me
