• How did Wayne make his first pot of gold? It can't be from his popularity after No Regrets series, can it?? I agree with @diana80 assessment.
  • The article above actually mentioned that 'netizens online miss seeing Wayne on TVB'...not in any dramas produce by other TV stations. So i find that his answer is appropriate that he has been selective on TVB drama that he chooses to film recently. Furthermore, he's on a 'one series per year' contract with TVB...so it is understandable that he's being selective because he definitely wants to choose a good role that could leave a deep impression to the audience. Besides, if money is not a great concern and Wayne is already enjoying a comfortable life with his Hong Kong income, then there's no need for him to shift his career to Mainland, where he could only be a 4th or 5th line actors. Thus, it's a matter of choice for Wayne, and there is nothing wrong if he chooses to stay in his comfort zone, as long as he continues to give us a good show in any drama he is in.
  • Roger's acting in this series is just good, but not deserving for another Best Actor award since his acting is pretty much the same as how he portrayed his previous antagonist roles. Besides, Roger is already a three-time Best Actor award recipients. Winning it again would just be the icing on the cake for him. But it's a different case for Kenneth who has never win the award. It would be a great encouragement for him to do even better thereafter. Therefore, i hope TVB will finally give Kenneth the award this year to recognise his good acting (although may not be the best) and his loyalty to the station. Even Ruco & Vincent who rose to popularity later than Kenneth (in TVB) have won the award...so why not Kenneth? No doubt both Ruco & Vincent have good acting skills, but they also didn't win the award for their masterpiece, instead they won it because TVB has finally willing to recognise their value...after an overdue period.
  • Although the ending is kinda rushed, but it is still acceptable. The open-ending gives audience room for imagination, and possibility for a sequel...as it was mentioned above that the ending was edited. Anyway, i do hope that Kennis' story would just end as her being a MSF doctor, but we don't know whether or not she will go back to Hong Kong...instead of the gunshot scene which left us wondering whether or not she is dead. However, BWD is still one of the good TVB drama in recent years & shows that TVB is willing to improve/try a different method in their production, instead of maintaining the tried and proven formula for years.
  • Kelly's acting is still quite raw...need more experience before she could carry a series by herself (as first female lead). Meanwhile, both Ali & Natalie are convincing as doctors. Ali's acting has been consistent...not so great but not bad either. As for Natalie, I'm glad that her acting is improving, & don't mind to see her leading more series with the lack of talents in TVB right now.
  • This series is ok so far, albeit being draggy on the medical reformation issue. I've been waiting to see what will happen if the medical reform bill is approved by the parliament. Anyway, it is still among the few good series that TVB has produced recently. Hope that it would get more compliments from the audience to encourage TVB to produce good quality dramas in future.
  • @diana80 I don't think he changed. Rather she changed in her perspective. And I don't see any contrast since the whole change happened in 1 episode flashback and present day etc. Not enough development.
  • I want Tong Ming & Zoe to reconcile too. Since Tong Ming has changed some of his habits which may cause them to divorce earlier, and Zoe also begins to understand him better, i think their relationship will work out this time. In reality, i'm also rooting for Kenneth & Natalie to end up as couple. They look sweet together.
  • In my earlier post for another article about BWD, i did say that Roger’s villainous role seems not much different from his other roles in recent series. Thus, it would be more refreshing to see other veteran actor playing his role in BWD. However, if it is like what was mentioned in the above article (i.e. Dr. YT Yeung was wronged), then i'm looking forward to know what is the story behind and how Roger portrays the different characters of his role.
  • Basically i agree with the statement/advice. But i question the credibility when it comes from someone whom i suspected that she also got married because she needs to (probably due to the unexpected pregnancy).
  • The series is so far so good...it's different from TVB's previous medical dramas. Hope the storyline will be consistently good...not going downhill towards the ending. The main leads and main supporting casts are also doing a good job, except Kelly & Crystal who are stiff in their expressions. & Roger's character seems not much different from his other characters in recent series. Thus, it would be more refreshing to see other veteran actor playing his role in this series.
  • @fatchoy Thanks for your feedback. Wow...u was able to watch it from beginning to the end...that's not easy for u since u are a comedy lover! Yup...slow and dark-themed dramas are not my preference. Therefore, no matter how much people have been criticising TVB series for its drop in quality in recent years (which i also agree), but i find their series are still watchable if u are just watching purely for entertainment...not for logic plot or finding the flaws. At least it's fast-paced.
  • @diana80 IMHO, it's not a series I would recommend to anyone. I'm a comedy fan and this whole series has been dark, very dark, from the story to the decor, the music, the clothes. Everything was just cold. After each episode I had this "wth did I just watch" moment and felt drained. I couldn't get attached to any of the characters and yes, like you said, the show is slow. But at the same time, I feel like you can hardly develop a good story with only 20 minutes per episode, unless it's a sitcom. The acting was okay and the only reason I watched the whole series from the beginning to the end it's because I'm a CBC and I want to improve my Cantonese, so I just watch every Canto tv shows lol
  • @diana80 Yeah he is probably on same acting level as Ben Yuen. I think once audiences get used to it will be fine. I remember when Gordon Lam first got promoted to lead, I was like, what's going on. The transition to me was a shock after seeing him as kelefe for years and years.
  • @ricky721 Thanks for your reply. Well, i'll just skip this series then. TVB's Big White Duel is airing already, i guess it should be more fast-paced & interesting than the above series.
  • @diana80 , I echo that! I heard positive reviews and started to watch it. After 2 episodes, I've stopped watching as well. Not as good as everyone was talking about. I watched tried to pick it up again at episodes 29 and 30...Was it the ending? Honestly, it wasn't attracting me at all. I was watching only because of Sharon Tang. Sunny Chan and Bernice Liu I really didn't care for.
  • Can anyone comment about this series? Is it good and worth watching to the end? I stop watching after 2 episodes, and is waiting for more feedback before i decides whether to continue watching this series or just skip it. I was watching it for Sheren Tang and Sunny Chan...but the show is kind of slow in the beginning.
  • @kolo Basically agreed with you. But Mat actually played the comedic role (Gus) in the series quite well (although of course the ending of the series is bad...but that's not his problem). Never thought that he can play a different role other than acting cool as police officer. I don't mind to watch him as a lead in smaller productions because if Benjamin Yuen can lead...why can't Mat leads a light-hearted series? I personally think both their acting are at the same level, but Benjamin Yuen is highly promoted by TVB...thus ahead of Mat.
  • @diana80 i agree, and her message just reflected that she has to deal with her other inner emotions not just what her faith has taught her. it's hard but she has made the choice.
