• @hetieshou wow. Never knew these two women’s are that evil until you mentioned it. Yes it is a shame for sure. About Michelle I thought it spells with double l’s no?
  • @megamiaow Ok I guess I need to watch it myself to see. Sadly. I was not into modern series back then so missed out on many back then. I only watched ancient series and a few of the classic modern series and that was it. Hugo is a very good actor and can play pretty much any role.
  • @llwy12 I actually thought Ray and Kathy were fine and the age gap of 11 years is not too bad. My late parents always said that it is fine if the guy is older. I used to believe that until they said that even if the guy is 20 years older it is ok but not ok for a woman to be even a few years older. That is BS to me. I feel as long as the age gap is not ridiculously big whether older or younger then it should be ok as long as you are compatible, love each other,etc... Kevin Cheng is 22 years older than Grace Chan which is way too big of an age gap. Now,I wonder if they will last down the line. But anyways, yes Leon and Kathy seemed more compatible. I know what you mean and I found it a bit awkward when I first saw Leon in a costume series but got used it. Same with Gallen but got used to it as well. Yes, Eddie was good in Sword of Conquest but my family did not like him much. They said he was a bit off in his acting but I enjoyed his acting.
  • @llwy12 Ok 40 eps is not bad... I thought it was a lot longer than that. I guess I have to watch it to see for myself. My late mom liked complete endings and she hated open endings. Like the ending in Looking Back in Anger was an open ending which she hated. As long as the ending makes sense, I do not mind open endings.
  • @pompidur Oh ok, 40 eps is not too bad. I thought it was 60 eps or more. Deric is good at playing villain roles. Yes, I was watching some old 80s series and saw Wayne,Frankie ams many other green leaf actors when they were still playing extras and minor characters. I am more of an 80s child but love the 90s as those were my teenage years. Boy, I feel so old...
  • @hetieshou Yeah he was the villain., he played it well. Just something in the plot I wont say in case I spoil it for people.
  • @hetieshou To be honest, I never thought Ray and Kathy were a good match so not surprised it didn’t last. Most of the 80s couples I adored but they weren’t one of them...I just never got the vibe from them...it probably didn’t help that Ray was 10 years older than Kathy, whereas Leon was the same age as her and probably had more in common. I actually can’t imagine Leon in Swords of Conquest...Eddie was better fitted to that role (plus Eddie has more “costume drama” vibe than Leon does)...I’ve always felt that the 2 actors who are the least natural-looking in costume dramas are Leon and also Gallen Lo (purely my opinion)...so in a way, I guess it’s good that they didn’t do a whole lot of costume dramas back then (they did some, but majority were modern series).
  • @hetieshou Depends on what you define as long. The Breaking Point is 40 episodes, which isn’t long by “old” standards (most of the “big” series back then were 40 eps or more). I don’t feel it’s draggy, but not sure if my opinion counts, since I’ve seen it so many times. As for the ending..well, depends on perspective...I’ve personally always hated the ending to the series, but then again, I hate the endings to most TVB series. I remember there was a “fan-fic” ending that someone wrote in a magazine back then that’s actually closer to what I would’ve wanted the ending, but oh well. I read an interview that the series’ producer Mui Siu Ching did years later where she talked about the ending and explained why they did it that way...it made sense, but I still didn’t like it.
  • @hbc1 I actually do not find Grace that pretty and her acting ... well we all know.
  • @hetieshou It's 40 episodes I think. Can be draggy at times, especially the first half. It gets interesting when Deric turns into a villain. There were a lot of kelefes from familiar faces, Wayne Lai, Gordon Lam etc. And Power Chan was great as Leon's 'brother'. Also, I love the nostalgic feelings of those 90s Cantopop in that series
  • @gnomageddon Oh that old wise tale. I think the ring trick is more accurate and even that is not 100% accurate.
  • @funn I have a feeling something bad may have happened for him to diss her like this. To be fair, there are times YZ can be decent but at times can be a complete idiot. People have fall outs all the time so it is nothing new. Even a happily married couple can suddenly divorce so nothing is shocking anymore.
  • @jayne You are right and if Hk can cater to the international audience then they have a chance to remaining relevant in the long term. It is sad thar the Chinese government has so many restrictions which will stop the creativity and expansion to the international community. Time will tell how the HK movie and drama industry will do. With TVB,they are truly going downhill. I miss the good old days which are gone. They do not want to invest in anything and go cheap on everything hoping to profit more. They make too many modern series but do not to invest in any good ancient and wuxia series. I guess they still cannot compare to China productions with a big budgets and all.
  • @m0m0 Yes he was which why I think Ray got angry and I heard even hit Leon. I think Leon was supposed to act in the Sword of Conquest with Kathy but he refused due to the incident with Ray. Therefore, Eddie Kwan took the role instead.
  • @megamiaow What happened that made you hate it? I heard Hugo’s character was very bad.
  • @llwy12 Thanks for the info and I should give the Breaking Point a chance. How long is it? Does it get draggy and have a good ending? I do not mean happy ending but an ending that makes sense.
  • @pompidur Ok thanks for the recommendations. I will give Breaking Point a try. How long is it? Does it get draggy?
  • @megamiaow I have seen him in many series and his acting is not too bad. It is better than many TVB actors for sure. He has played a variety of roles and is not a bad actor. His acting is decent. It depends on the role and series.
  • @anon If you are aiming at looks then it should be much more than looks.
  • @cutie777 You know the saying, women like fortune/talent while men like looks. The age gap between her and Wallace was big but I have seen women older men marry men that much if not even younger. It just depends. With Rosamund’s reputation, she can do anything to get what she wants. She even broke up Maggie Chan’s marriage and caused her to get a miscarriage. Some of these women like her and Michele Reis have no shame... They hurt and break up marriages without caring at all. I find that so sad and I guess they do not care until it happens to them.
