• @funnlim Totally agree with you. Carlos's performance in this series is owesome...he really nailed it. I hope to watch more of him in future series.
  • Baby Kelly is so adorable...looks like her daddy and beautiful like her mommy. I hope the false accusations about who is Kelly's real father would stop because the baby definitely looks like her father; Jeremy Leung. While i do find @bubbletea impersonating the troll was amusing, but i do agree with @jimmyszeto to certain point that we should not bring up the troll's comments as it is really disrespectful to Linda's family. Furthermore, the baby is innocent. Perhaps a better way to stop the troll from keep posting his/her repetitive bad comments is to ignore him/her at all & he/she will eventually stop when there is no more fun for him/her because nobody is responding anymore.
  • I've read in previous post that many people have mistaken Natalie as the supporting actress only in My Unfair Lady. Although i was also surprised and felt that Natalie's win is undeserving, but poor girl...have to clarify that she was actually the second female lead in My Unfair Lady. Maybe because she was so often casted in supporting roles, so many people have recognised her as supporting actress only But in fact, My Unfair Lady has two male and female leads; i.e. Jessica, Natalie, Frankie and Vincent. The supporting actresses in that series are actually Samantha Ko and Zoie Tam. By awarding Natalie as the Best Actress, i hope TVB would also take the next step to cast her in a a good drama and breakthrough role this year, which could help to change the audiences' perspective of her.
  • @llwy12 I also don't think that the major categories awards were really based on audience votes by looking at the shocking results last nite. Yes, Natalie is a good actress and can act, but i agree with you that she lacks the onscreen charisma...and i'm also not keen to watch a drama with her as the main lead. The female categories are basically to award those that TVB wants to promote heavily in the coming years; eg. Natalie, Rebecca and Sisley. But even so, i feel that they should have reserved the Best Actress award to the deserving actress, especially as the station is marking their 50th anniversary. I believe Natalie will be equally happy if she is awarded the Most Favourite Female Character, and that award also can promote her to the next level like Grace Wong (2016 winner of the same award) who is now promoted to lead actress. Meanwhile, Sisley would be more deserving for Most Improved Female Artist...and winning a big award for her first time (in HK) will only bring more hatred towards her again.
  • @lam86 Agree with you that TVB awards nowadays often rigged, and this time was even worse. Also agree that TVB simply award Natalie as Best Actress, so that other deserving actresses are not jealous bcos their competitor got the award for that special 50th anniversary year. After all, they know that Natalie is not a real competitor. I also think that they award Natalie because Jessica didn't attend the ceremony yesterday. Otherwise, Best Actress could be Jessica. It's like a last minute change of winner just like a scene in Married But Available...Lol @jimmyszeto Yup, all the winners for the female categories were unexpected and mostly undeserving. It's a pity no recognition for the veterans although many of them attended the ceremony and were in the race this time...huhu
  • @hetieshou, @rika I wonder how far is Andy's kindness bcos if he really does, he could have done more to help Yammie instead of just helping her financially, e.g. to advise her to get medical treatment from the beginning and give her the courage she needs to expose the real culprits. To me, Yammie's greatest advantage is she has nothing...nothing to lose even if her great attempts to expose Eric's true colors fail. The most is Eric (if he's really guilty) will find people to hurt her but should anything bad happen to Yammie in a near future, then Eric will be the main suspect and his reputation will tarnish. So it's worth the sacrifice to bring down this man rather than living in silence and hopeless situation for the rest of her lifetime.
  • Why they just asked those who have close relationship with Eric? Of course they will support him as friends, especially those who have benefited from his help. The one that should bravely step out to tell the truth now is Yammie Lam. Stop being a coward and ruin your life because of this man. This is the time to tell the whole world what this man has done to you in the past, overcome your fear for him if you are going to tell the truth and start a new life. I believe Yammie is in her current poor state because she is still traumatised by the incident and gives up on herself.
  • I like Jessica but her performance in My Unfair Lady is not TV Queen worthy to me. I was surprised when she won the award in Malaysia last November, because I felt that she was just playing a role that she has been doing previously. I also agree that her role in LW2 was not as outstanding as I expected it to be. So with her characters in both dramas being typecasted and boring, I really hope that she would not be given the award just because TVB wants her to continue filming for them. Personally, i would choose Kristal to win the Hong Kong's TV Queen award this time for her superb performance in Destination Nowhere. Although the series was aired earlier last year, i really hope that her strong performance in the series would not be forgotten by the audience.
  • @llwy12 Thanks a lot for the info. If that's the case, then this series is not that appealing anymore (at least to me) since the focus is on the romantic storyline, which sounds boring to me. @cutie777 I also have not heard of Shaun Tam until when i read news about him co-starring with Ruco in Succession War. Justice Pao is his second TVB series...i think TVB may want to promote him as one of their leading actors.
  • @cutie777 Yes, Tavia left TVB already and she only come back to film Another Era...so yea can't wait to watch her on screen again after quite some time. Btw, why is it not Bobby Au Yeung as Justice Pao? It will be more interesting if Bobby is casted for the role because i believe he will be more convincing and entertaining as Justice Pao.
  • @passingby Good analogy...& i agreed that if TVB had scheduled a 2hr finale on Friday night, the ratings would be higher. As i noticed in other forums, some didn't even know earlier that the final episode will be aired on Sunday evening, and thought it will air on Monday. Therefore, like @funnlim, me too would like to say that lower ratings doesn't mean the series is not good. Speaking of silly moments/dumb scenes, both TEM and LM have their own share of those scenes. But due to TEM being a horror cum comedy series, so i'm fine with those silly scenes in it which i treat as comedy elements of the series.
  • @passingby I know about the 70:30 ratio. What i meant in my earlier post is that Malaysian voters do not just vote for the most popular actors/actress, but they at least take into consideration the performance of the actors/actress to make sure they worth the awards. Therefore as you can see, both the Best Actor & Actress, and Best Supporting Actor & Actress for Starhub 2017 could not repeat their victory in Malaysia because their performance in their nominated series were indeed not the best, particularly for Ali Lee and Jacqueline Wong. Anyway, i do agree with you that the final result is still "moderated" by TVB. @jimmyszeto If it is really as what you claimed, Outbound Love should have won Best Drama in Malaysia that year (2014). Best Actor should have been Ruco (but he lost it to Roger that year in Malaysia). The series did not win any major awards in Malaysia that year despite being filmed in Malaysia.
  • In my opinion, between Singapore and Malaysia TVB awards, the Malaysia awards have more credibility because i noticed that fans in Malaysia do not merely vote based on popularity. Additionally, they also look into the performance of the actors to make sure they are voting for popular actors with best performance. Perhaps popularity does carry a larger percentage (eg. 60%), while performance carries smaller percentage (eg. 40%), but at least the actors were voted based on both criterias, rather than Singapore awards which clearly is a popularity award. Therefore, Ruco could easily won thrice in a row in Singapore due to his high popularity there. Besides, the results of TVB Starhub Singapore Awards normally have huge difference from the awads in Hong Kong due to the fact that the Singapore Awards are totally based on popularity. But to be the real TV King and Queen, actors need to be both popular while delivering great performance. Anyway, congratulations to both Jesicca and Michael Miu. So happy for them and they truly deserve the awards for their long commitment and well-experienced in the industry.
  • @elizabeth Totally agree with you. TEM is definitely a much better and meaningful series than Blue Veins. TVB has made the right decision to include this series as its anniversary series this year. Hopefully this series could grab some awards during TVB Anniversary Awards 2017.
  • This show tells TVB that you don't need a big casts, big budget, traveling all the way to Taiwan, Macau, Mainland, Holland, etc. to film a good show. As long as more creativity are put into the writing of the story, and the production of the show is well-executed by all parties, then even a small budget series like TEM could also come out as a big hit. Kenneth definitely carried his role very well, but not Mandy. As was mentioned in my other post about Mandy's performance in this series, i truly believe she can do even better, but her performance in this series is just so so...not her best. Even Moon Lau outshines her in the show. I also like Hubert Wu and think he's the new gem in TVB. Hope to see more of him in future series and listen to more series theme songs sing by him.
  • @funnlim I think the ending is not bad. It gives chance for a sequel. The only part which i'm not satisfied is it seemed easy to destroy the demon. I was expecting a longer and intense fight between Siu Ma and the demon. Anyway, with the good reception for this series, TVB most likely will produce the sequel. But i hope the production team will not change (same producer, director, scripwriters, etc) to ensure the quality of its sequel. I'm happy that Kenneth didn't end up with Mandy. In fact, if Moon's character was still alive, i would rather he choose Moon who was always there to support him. I feel strange because i have always like Mandy's acting, but i think both her acting and characters in this series is just so so. Her acting as a gentle doctor is boring, while as a demon, she wasn't so scary and she acted awkwardly too.
  • @snoopy, @siro112233 Well, different people have different likings. For me, both dramas are among the few good dramas this year, and both the main leads (Kenneth and Vincent) are equally good. The Exorcist's Meter deserves to win some award, but not as many as @siro112233 has listed though. I would say the drama has the chance to grab Best Actor and Best Themed Song Awards. I really like all the songs for this drama.
  • @llwy12 I feel bad for Gallen. Although i do like to watch him in TVB series again (as i'm not a fan of Mainland series), but knowing the way TVB mistreat him, i'll support him if he decided not to film for TVB again. & Louis Cheung also won't be filming for TVB anymore? What a pity...i like him and is hoping to see more of him in future series. It is really disappointing to hear this piece of news. With regards to Threshold Again, i'll watch this for Roger, Frankie, Niki and Tavia. I won't hold high expectations when watching this later because i know Gallen's character is irreplaceable and was the reason why i love the series so much back then. Just hope that it will at least turn out as a decent series.
  • Was it really so stressful for Bosco? He is just playing the same old...same old ambitious and flirtatious character. I don't think it wil be so much different from his character in Two Steps from Heaven. And pairing with Priscilla again? Anyway, will give this a try for the veteran casts. But even if do watch, i think most likely i'll just watch few episodes in the beginning, middle and the ending of the series...haha!! If only they can bring back Tavia, Linda & Fala...that will be great. I definitely love them more over Priscilla, Eliza and Sharon.
  • I tried to imagine what if Kenneth and Vincent switch roles; Kenneth as the blind lawyer and Vincent as the taxi driver...would they be able to perform each other's role well? My opinion is they both can handle it and both are at the same level in terms of their acting. Therefore, there is no issue of pity votes, but rather whose acting could leave a deep impression to audience. Anyway, given that Kenneth has been in the industry for many years and now that he has improved a lot, it's time to give credit/recognize his efforts as an encouragement.
