• @jackjackbug many here, like me, will watch it for Ali ;) She’s so convincing in it! This proves its scripts and acting skills that earn ratings , not big budgets
  • I've enjoyed all the episodes so far. It's definitely fresh and so different compared to all the other themes TVB has produced. I'm an Ali fan so this was a definite must see and I'm so glad I was right. She is so so convincing as an AI and the main cast is just as great. This is my 1st time watching Crystal Fung in any series and thought she is fine and plays her part decently, but Ali has stolen this show. This series was not shot in a studio so it gives the series a refreshing point of view. I find that the office scenes has that Wes Andersen feel; quirky, a bit retro, and has a defin color palette. The irony is that given their high tech business and products, there is nothing in that office that is high tech in 2020! This series has a heart and so many feelings and asks some important questions regarding AI and humans. Overall, it's a great series so far and I highly recommend.
  • I enjoyed this series 100% and the cast as well. The story lines are all relatable and very heartfelt. The writer/s did a wonderful job of telling the story and I teared up in a few scenes. The only story arc I didn’t care for was Shay and Brian’s. Too meh and it felt like the their chemistry was so forced. I also wished it wasn’t 12 episodes so hopefully there will be a sequel. Overall, I really liked this series. Well done to the cast, director/s, and the writers!
  • @jackjackbug Yeah I remember that scene. I didn't understand what he meant with his metaphor it sounded jibberish to me since he's not right in the mind so I thought he was just having a psychotic thought. Thanks for clearing it up!
  • @oligodendrocytes to answer your question about Parker, he had a monologue when he was in the abandoned building. He was talking to his scared wife. He said that essentially when a tiger is raised as a dog, he grows up thinking as a dog since everything he’s learned is that of a dog. But once the guidance of being a dog is gone (reference to his Uncle dying) then the dog one day realizes he’s really a tiger. When the tiger starts acting like what he truly is, then it makes more sense. Parker was basically saying he’s been wanting to be a killer all this time but he was raised to be the opposite. He gets a thrill from killing. I hope that answers your query. My Chinese is decent, so when watching that scene; that’s the take away I got from Parker’s ‘confession’.
  • I really enjoyed this series! It was fast paced, the soundtrack was fun, and the characters were interesting. The plot of underground assassins with agents, no less is a pretty unique story line. Moses and Ali has great chemistry. When I watched them as a couple in ‘My Ages Apart’, it was so apparent that their rapport was so natural. Elena and Wayne had the more believable relationship and I wished they had more of a story. Elena and Wayne also had great chemistry. The rapport between Charlie Chan and Zero was so good. It was a bromance right before our eyes and I’m for it! I really wished Wayne and Moses had more dialogue and more of a friendship in the series. I enjoyed watching these actors but didn’t care for Mun Mun or Teet Yun (Jimmy Au’s Character). His character was too short and the writers wasted good talent on a ‘throw away’ role. Dark Angel was too extreme. I like Katy Kung’s ‘look’ but the portrayal of her being ‘crazy’ was too extreme. This series was one of the better ones for 2020, IMO. I’ve so far really enjoyed ‘Brutally Young’ and ‘Life After Love’. All three series, though different in plot and story structure was all enjoyable to watch.
  • @jimmyszeto I so agree with you! Mandy pales in comparison to the other cast members. TBH, anyone could’ve played that character. It was a ‘meh’ character. Nothing to write home about. Vivian was great!
  • Just finished this drama and it was pretty good. I enjoyed the thriller aspect of it. Mandy is NOT my favorite actress to watch or even remotely close to enjoy watching her. She never seems to have any emotions or dimension. Just ‘meh’. I did enjoy the other cast members’ chemistry and how the story unfolded. Shaun Tam was very good in this series. Showed how he tried to be straight laced (light suits throughout the series) and then he gradually turns crooked (dark suit and different glasses). Vivien Yeo stole the show, Tiger’s wife was really good, and Griselda’s character was so tragic. Overall a very good show. Thankfully it was only 20 episodes. Thank you, TVB!
  • I agree, I don’t care for Shaun and Alice together. I wanted him to be with Dr. Man, Selene’s character. The series is decent and I like the esemble cast. I really couldn’t stand Raymond Lam’s character with Monique. THEY HAD NO CHEMISTRY. The guy had more chemistry with a corpse. He was so stiff and uncomfortable with Monique. I would cringe when they were together. I’m sure they cringed too. I really enjoy Roxanna’s character much better than JW. Roxanna is a better actress and has more emotion and has more depth. JW would’ve just ruined the show even more. I watched her on the series with the singing older men and the maid’s alliance. I didn’t think she was that good and I didn’t care for her characters.
