• Loved Brutally Young, still disappointed how neglected the drama was during the recent awards show! I really hope this sequel is well written though I don't have that much hope with tvb and sequels- sometimes they just try and milk the same idea (LW ehem)... If there's a 'sequel' without the entirety of the original cast, I really do hope Anthony Ho returns because I thought he was great in the original!
  • @ledge Happy or not, RL is well deserved to win BA since a long time ago where it's obvious a cheat in 2012 that Wayne can win over RL in 100% audience votes. Now TVB's classic channel keeps promoting Raymond lam's past drama. The lethal weapons of love and passion so nice. RL is gifted and versatile in modern/ancient dramas and singing.
  • @ledge Yes, many people are saying Kenneth should have been nominated for EM2 rather than LW3.
  • @ledge I should also add, best actor for Vincent might be better for next year for his role in DID. He definitely has the potential to knock it out of the park and snag a second BA.
  • @ledge yes, his nomination is for LM2, and fave character for al cappuccino - the article made a mistake. Yeah everything is lined up for Raymond to win, has to be. I also don’t think there was enough in LM2 for Vincent to win. He was solid but there was a lot of episodes wasted in the beginning. And yes, exorcist meter 2.0 is a better nomination for Kenneth. He was horrendous in LW3.
  • @ledge also a quick additional point. I still think Kenneth’s role in The Exorcist’s Meter 2.0 was more worthy of a best actor nomination than LW3 but I guess that’s just me...
  • Isn’t Vincent’s best actor nomination for Legal Mavericks 2? And he’s nominated for my favourite male character for Al Capuccino? Anyway, I think surely Raymond (if he turns up to the ceremony) will win best actor and Vincent will win my favourite character as he hasn’t won that before either. It’s very rare anyone wins best actor twice for the same character in a sequel so my bets are on Vincent winning next year. They would definitely want to keep Raymond happy especially if they want a Line Walker 4 however I personally would love Michael Miu to win for Cheuk Sir!
  • It's a bit of a shame that Ruco has been typecasted into such roles. Admittedly, as others have said above, Vincent is the better actor though I feel that Ruco excels in morally grey characters e.g. Brother's Keeper or even imo Eye in the Sky. The issue is that since AFWFW, he's been typecasted into these slightly cheesy, action dramas and other factors haven't helped his position in TVB. Maybe he has really lost his charm? It's a shame again, I remember when we all wanted him to be in more dramas in the early 2010's hahahaha Anyway, as everyone has said, there is absolutely no way Raymond Lam doesn't win best actor this year- if not I wouldn't expect a LW4 xD
  • @ledge The only reason Pakho was cut from LW3 is because of that Insta post he made telling people to vote
  • The only reasoning I could even think of for how his character was written this way from the start is that the writers felt they couldn't fit in all the story line. They may be trying to have an ending that leads in to a potential LW4 and end with Priscilla seeing Pakho at the end of the series?? A big stretch from me but I just don't understand why else his character was basically cut from the beginning.
  • @ledge I’m hoping for Priscilla for BA as well... I don’t think Mandy’s role is really a stretch, very similar to Brutally Young role..
  • @tt23 @bubbles23 Kenneth's hair is outrageous hahahahah. I feel they were trying to age him from LW2 as that was supposedly 10 years ago but it just looks like a mess. Benz looks to have been sidecasted in this series but I feel though Ben and Pris are both only supporting, there has been a lot of promo on them two so I feel there's more to come. I don't really like Mandy here, I'm hoping Priscilla does well because I'd defo prefer her for best actress. It really does seem like a cross over of LW and The Academy with Ron Ng and Michael Tse. I'm quite excited who else will turn up.
  • @ledge yeah agree with all your thoughts here. Hopefully they clear things up by then. Kenneth’s look is killing me, it’s terrible. That eyebrow with the half grey. He can’t pull off the grey hair because he’s Kenneth and also I am constantly comparing him to Owen from AC who looks great with the bleached hair. Omg tony is the worst. Like I just don’t like his overall personality or anything about him. He’s not good looking or a great actor, nothing appealing.
  • @tt23 so I echo what @antibaka said above. I may be thinking too much into it but basically the pics I saw of Pakho were when he was with Kenneth who had that weird floppy hair in that weird brewery (before revealing he was a UC). So realistically, I feel that was his supposed recorded scene cut out and replaced with the dreadlocks guy. The timeline is so confusing but with 37eps I’m hoping it’ll somewhat clear up by ep15 or so. With Shiga and Tony (as well as the supposed appearance of Oscar Leung who died in LW1) really makes me think that there’ll be lots of flashback scenes. A bit upset that out of everyone they chose to flashback Tony hahahaha
  • @ledge this made me hopeful that he was at least going to be in the first few episodes but I think they either cut or refilled some of those scenes. They just need to address it somehow. The timelines so far are all over the place at the moment tbh but since shiga and tony have not showed up yet, I am hoping that the timelines will be sorted out then.
  • @ledge to add to this, there are literally pictures of Pakho with Kenneth and Raymond during filming- unless against all odds they keep those scenes in, it feels like TVB have re-written the LW2 ending to pretend he didn't survive
  • Such a shame, really does look like they've edited out all of Pakho's scenes- I really enjoyed his character in LW2. Unrelated, by looking at the cast list, it seems that Michael Tse aka Laughing gor himself and Ron Ng are one of many who are guest starring!!?? They really have gone all out this time hahaha
  • It’s a shame, I feel Vincent has *finally* come to his own but this is after 24 episodes when he’s dropped his comedic side and become slightly crazy/dark as a ‘real’ gang leader. The series could’ve been so much more but I’m hoping Vincent gives us something interesting to watch over the last 5 eps next week.
  • @ledge Vincent & Ruco are both great at complex roles. In fact, I think most good actors shine in those roles. TVB needs to produce dramas where the main characters are interesting and complex.
  • ***SPOILERS*** I was sooo upset seeing Wayne's apprentice get hit. Knowing TVB, someone has to end up dying so it doesn't look good on that front. And if Brian Tse is the final boss then Siu Bing has to die otherwise it's too soon/easy for them to know the secret. When seeing the final boss strike, it really does look like Brian under the mask so not sure how to argue that. My personal theory however is I wouldn't be surprised if Fung Sir worked out a deal the time he went to Anthony's office when he was following Kill Bill (who also makes me laugh loads). With his previous mental health they keep mentioning, perhaps he has a personality disorder so he wants to catch the assassins but also goes OTT?? Even if not, I still think he'd be the final boss because he'll be driven to the limit the amount of times people don't believe what he says.
