• @sherla1019 Did you watch this series? In the series he was rich so I think that's why girls flock to him. Also, it was later found out that the after the girls sleep with him they immediately marry rich; so that's why the girls use him. I personally think 6wing acts better than a lot of TVB siu sangs nowaday. He doesn't have the look but he's very charming. He was great in Two Steps From Heaven.
  • I'm liking the fact that the each case is not predictable. I was so afraid that everyone will have a typical TVB happy ending but that does not apply to all cases. Honestly, I love Joel but he hasn't impressed me yet. If anything, I feel like he over-act on some scenes. Selena on the other hand was very natural and continue to showcase her acting abilities.
  • @iciel Lol, I agree that TVB oftentimes is not scary but with Barrack O’Karma I think writers have done a decent job thus far with the horror element. And I too anticipate more of Selena and Joel’s story! I think Selena will end up a fan favorite for the award, but I doubt she’ll win since she’s no longer contracted. She still has Forensic Heroes 4, but that’s to be aired next year probably … so if she doesn’t win this year, perhaps with FH4 haha.
  • I haven't been so excited for a TVB drama in such a long time. I started watching episode 1 online at 1am thinking, eh, it's TVB, how scary could it be? I closed my browser 5 minutes in lol. The cases are unpredictable and the horror part is mostly psychological. Not much jump scare which is great news for me. I can't wait until they dig further into Selena and Joe's story. Since it's Selena's last series, I don't think TVB will give her the TV queen award, but she might become one of the top choices for fans.
  • #6 and 7 is somewhat reasonable but the rest are ridiculous lol. These children don't know how the industry work. If the company can't make money from their artist why do they even bother managing them?
  • @iciel Yeh, the big productions are always handed out to the likes of Nancy and Ali with the rest having mop up the cheap productions. The current TVB landscape though, anybody could make a breakthrough then can be promoted into the bigger productions with many starting a family, aging or blacklisted. Ben Wong is another example of a lead who has been mopping up the crappy 'nobody remembers' type series for years...
  • Looks interesting! Samantha is one of those actress where I don't hate seeing in TVB dramas but she's always given really bad series. Her face is a bit unnatural but her crying is good.
  • @iciel, thanks for the review. Not much more we can debate about these negative comments from people that have not and probably will never see the film. To each his own I guess.
  • @iciel The point is the girl was only 12 years old when they were filming this movie/for the bed scene.
  • I wonder if such negative reactions from everyone here is because they're thinking of sex scenes like in Lust, Caution lol. I watched the Third Wife, there is a very short bed scene that was done artistically. The director focused on the facial expression and mostly filmed above the chest area. There was like a 5 second scene where part of her body was seen but her chest was covered by her long hair. I feel like "hot scenes" from TVB are more daring than this. And it's a very small fragment of the film. The media blew this out of proportion. The film is very mellow and slow and if you're thinking this is a film about fighting in the family between the wives you couldn't be more wrong. It focused a lot on normal every day life of this Third Wife, when she transitioned from a girl to a woman.
  • @iciel jesus the writing sounds horrible and lame. The worst in recent record of bad writings.
  • @cutie777 It was a nickname that fans and colleague affectionately called him by. I don't know where it really originated from. Some sources said Joey Wong, some said Carina Lau.
  • Oh man I thought it was just the angle on the first pic but the following pics look just like him too. I miss gor gor :'(
  • @iciel Agreed, though I don’t think any of us should be surprised, as this isn’t the first time TVB has appeared to “normalize” rape in a series and it probably won’t be the last. I don’t watch much TVB anymore nowadays, but I did catch most of this series and to say that it’s a disappointment is an understatement...the emotional piece is severely lacking, which is a shame considering there are a lot of really good actors/actresses in the series...everyone’s reactions are off-kilter and the story is all over the place. Basically, the poorly written script is a huge problem, which unfortunately even a relatively good cast isn’t able to salvage. And yes, the series is super draggy and boring with the side stories of the younger generation that really should be cut because they have nothing to do with the main story line. This series proves once again that TVB is incapable of handling controversial / taboo subject matter in their series.
  • @iciel Exactly how I felt! Alice’s character wasn’t at all angry at Max’s character. And Max’s wife! No disgust that she found out her husband raped someone when he was 17! No one’s reaction was as I expected and seemed to brush off the gravity of the character’s actions.
  • @iciel I agree TVB is incapable of properly grasping the emotions/reactions of characters. The way they chose to reveal the truth is ridiculously calm. Is that even normal? Who are the scriptwriters these days? Terrible! They lack real life experience to write a decent story.
  • I started watching this because I was interested in how TVB would show when it comes to the women and men's point of view regarding rape. I was highly disappointed Alice completely forgave Max after she found out the truth and she was only angry at his father... I mean, the fact that she was raped and all the hard life she had to endure was still there. Just because she used to love Max that it makes his crime any less disturbing? When she saw Ben again and still thought he was the culprit, her reaction was very different, very angry and irrational. And what about Max's wife and son? Even if they came from Australia I doubt they're that forgiving. After it was found out that Max was the culprit, his wife asked him if he wants to get a divorce so he and Alice can get married --- like not at all angry or disgusted that her husband raped someone. Same with his son, I would have loved to see some sort of struggles to sort out their feelings, but nothing, just 100% supportive. Even the villagers' reactions to Max's father lying were stronger than when they see Max. I can't wrap my head around this series. They have the potential to explore such interesting and taboo theme yet played it safe again. I don't know what I expected. But I'll be dropping the series. It became extremely boring now with the whole head villager election & the ping pong team.
  • I just re-watched On Call 36 Hours so I'm a little bummed out to see Kenneth looking so haggard in this series lol still handsome but he has shown his age. It has a very different vibe to On Call; darker, more politics and also doesn't have the typical TVB hospital scenes. The hospital in this series looks more realistic, grim and cold.
