• @jimmyszeto I tuned in for the vets as well (and the music component) – of course, none of them disappoint, so from an acting perspective, the watch-ability factor is definitely there. Unfortunately though, the script sucks big-time (no surprise there, since this is TVB after all) and the storyline overall is boring….oh and despite TVB’s efforts to play down Jacqueline’s screen time, she still has way too much of it, which is unfortunate because her and Owen’s story arc is the least watchable in here (and for me, drags down the entire series). As much as I want to continue watching this to support so many of my favorite veterans (Hugo, Joe, Jimmy, Savio, Ram, Mimi, King Sir, Law Koon Lan, etc.), not sure if I’m going to last considering the first 5 episodes were already torture (though I guess it’s better than Vincent’s series, which I couldn’t even get through ½ an episode)….
  • @jimmyszeto TBH, I have a real life friend like that as well. She practically sacrificed all career progression just to be close to this guy she has been chasing for 10+ years.
  • @jimmyszeto True, but only if the other parent is willing to keep a relationship with their children, then there is still hope. Nowadays, with technology, calls, messages, or even FaceTime, can help keep in contact with their children. As for the parent who lives with the children, some are truly brainwashed because they've been hurt and they exaggerate and lie to children, but some are just responding through their perspective so it only "appears" as a brainwash. Through Nicholas' childhood and how he's been brought up (articles/interviews/his own words), I don't think he gave up because Cecilia brainwashed them, especially when Lucas (who I think is old enough to realize the difference) said that "he's not good enough for Mom."
  • Sometimes you just have to give up on the children. If one parent brainwashes the children day by day while living with them, the other parent is helpless. It is impossible to overcome. Seen that happen plenty. In the end all the father provides is money while the child will treat the new father more as the real father...
  • @potatochip Natalie shines bosses shoes to be relevant for so long when she has always been irrelevant in eyes of the viewers...
  • @wm2017 It must be Patrick’s background, personality or knowledge which women find attractive..
  • Looking forward to watching the old vets in ‘finding her voice’ once have a bit of time..
  • Get in! The truth is revealed for once from the ones that count. Though the argument fir Nicholas is that with the mother moving the children out of HK, it does make it hard for Nicholas to regularly take care of the children. Also how can a kid know who is the bad person in a relationship? Hate divorces. Always poor parental balance and brainwashing...
  • Who wrote this article? ‘Vincent nearly lost a nose in a fight scene’. From a punch? So all boxers and combat fighters have no noses then....
  • Much bigger reward than toiling late night shifts on the TVB set. Lump sums paid, plenty hired to raise the children. Easy life!
  • Short odds that this man is rich in his late forties or early fifties,previously divorced and not the most handsome...
  • @wm2017 There have been a few who gave up careers for the partner but not marry. The majority of the ones who quit entirely after having kids or at least after marrying. I agree it could be due to laziness once life’s target (to find a rich guy) has been reached but it could also be that they are so smitten in love that the actress can’t bare to be apart or any modest period of time. This can also be negative for the relationship since the freshness wears out. Putting all eggs in the basket isn’t the way to go. There are also plenty in mid thirties and forties who are doing the opposite by putting too much time into work and savings. There needs to be a balance...
  • @jimmyszeto Right? You would think they would pop those kids out if you are NOT working and sitting at home? Sigh...But then she's not the first and certainly will not be the last. Remember Margie Shao? My aunt loved that woman and she used to say how she was so popular why did she even cohabit and give her career for that noodle dude. Nothing lasts forever is fitting and it's reality sometimes. But I also think some women are just lazy as well. I have seen it. I mean I don't understand why they would stop working and not doing anything at an early age. I mean yes I understand some are just plain lazy to be in the work force so they at least pop some kids out. What do you call these? Not popping kids out and gave up career for what for nothing? Sigh....can't understand it really....It's like you lose some but gain some in other ways but you are losing all and gaining nothing. haha lol...
  • Hmm...giving up a potentially elite career to a guy who didn’t seem interested in marrying and prioritised his own interests....
  • @jjwong Shirley is a compulsive liar to the point where she denied she was pregnant. Saw that she could still earn a few dollars as 3rd rate celebrity so cut ties with the father of the baby and talked rubbish about his ex-boyfriend’s family. Realised she could play the pity card as a single mother so milked it. Waited for rich man who was happy accept her and daughter. Never once did she admit wrong and now using the excuse that it was no one else’s business but here and Gregory’s...
  • Would be a risk for Raymond who failed to crack the movie industry when young already. It will be even tougher this time round so hopefully his increased experience and maturity will help him shine...
  • @jimmyszeto Agree with the relationship between Billie Luk and Zoie Tam. I felt the story was kinda stupid and they had no chemistry at all. But at least it lightened the mood up a bit from some of the dark sad endings of the other stories. I think the Indian actor did an okay job there's still room for improvement. He's basically a substitute for the old time Q Bobo. He's gotten recognised for his role where some people actually know his Chinese name which is really nice. I do hope that Gloria Tang gets more roles in the future of prominent characters because I think she's a good actress and is likeable.
  • @oligodendrocytes Agree that Alex and ah Siu was the best couple. Much better than the Yuk Fai-Coco combination since Yuk Fai was a greedy flawed character. Ting Ting-Wa Wa was ok but the wooden acting of the Indian actor didn’t give Gloria Tang much to work with. First time I have been impressed with Kelly Cheung and her natural playful acting combining well in the underdog love story with Jazz Lam. Therefore Jazz-Kelly will have to be my 2nd favourite couple. The worst couple by a huge distance has to be Billie Luk-Zoie Tam. Billy is out of his depth when he moves away from his comedic scenes. It was awkward between the pair throughout with zero chemistry that it was difficult to justify how Carmem gave up the rich guy partner to get back with Choi San
  • @jimmyszeto Buying a degree is getting too common. Really stupid thing to do as being caught and shame is such a disgrace.
  • The father of the baby 'is her husband'. This is a good start for Shirley...
