• @oligodendrocytes the only sequel i can think of that tvb didn't ruin is rosy business 2 but the 3rd one was awful. can anyone name another?
  • Selena Lee is such a nice and humble actress. I do hope she has great projects in the future! I wish her all the best! I'm a bit saddened that the producer gives the idea that Joel Chan and Selena Lee (if she comes back) have a minor presence in the sequel. I do really like both of their performances in this drama and I hope this performance carries on in the sequel. I like the characters of Alex and Ah Siu. But I'm okay if they venture to different characters but still having the same actors/actresses. Hopefully the sequel is better than the first! As TVB have usual tendencies to ruin sequels :/
  • @oligodendrocytes I think Ching Ching's father became security of the building, not police. But how do you know Raj & Ching Ching werent married?
  • @oystergirl All kissing scenes by TVB artists all look bad. Maybe they just don't know how to kiss. But with cameras and people around its understandable and because they're conserved.
  • @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.
  • @jjwong I had an idea that the cat was a significant person. Like an actual human being in a cats body. Maybe in relation to Teacher Lam. There were times where Old Lam was speaking to the cat with lots of hatred that he could've got rid of it long time ago. And also how he turns into a beast all cat like with claws? Gave me an idea that he's some sort of descent and relative to the cat. Sad that the writers didn't give an actual storyline to the cat explaining everything. That'll be great. I also agree with the pipes. It would've been better if she died in the water tower. In a recent interview the screenwriters said at the ending when Old and Young Lam were standing at the roof stroking the cat were to be guardians and protect the new Alex and Ah Siu. Its a shame that the screenwriters in the end only focused on Ah Siu and Alex's relationship (although I'm a shipper). But knowing the background of the entire Twilight Mansion, the significance of the cat and relation to Lam and in general. (Also anyone wondered after that glasses guy dude living next door what happened to him? He had no story after besides giving back the toy to Mia in the end lolol) Maybe in the sequel they'll give us the answers missing. But they said they'll make new stories. So I'm excited for that!
  • @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
  • @potatochip @oligodendrocytes I was hoping there's more to the cat too! but nope it was simply there to be the 'similar' trait/connection between last and current life. Pity, really, because it's essentially an immortal cat if it indeed is still alive after 50 years! And yea, thought I would've been better if CoCo did die in the water tower too, which explain the eery pipes and how CoCo and Alex are tied to the Mansion. So, what was the point of burying young young young Lam alive? I mean he came back as a beast so did that mean he's always been a beast? Or was he cursed because of Twilight Mansion? Then again there was no TW when they buried him. I would think TW is still cursed and has its quirk because Lam was buried regardless what the new future is. This is not simply an 'open ended' ending or intentionally make it ambiguous. It seems they simply forgot about the significant of the cat, water pipes, and closing the loop on TW origin. Lol, typical. All started great, meh middle (at least not so bluntly useless fillers as 99% of their series), and disappointing ending. Imagine with Selena, they need bigger production budget. Lam beast mode is a joke. Other monsters could've been better done. Overall, I enjoyed it until Selena and Joel storyline got draggy and unrelated to the other tenants. They had no interaction with Jazz and Kelly story at all.
  • @jjwong Yes, that was a bit annoying that they were no longer together. @oligodendrocytes I was also confused about how young and old Lam were together. Did he invest as Joel instructed and became a millionaire? Is he still a dangerous creature? Did Joel come back for the pictures? And what was the cat? I had thought it was going to represent someone. I had also thought Selena was going to drown in the water tank or something. Wouldn't the building still be haunted? How did they break the curse?
  • @jjwong ikr!!! I was kinda upset about that they were the best couple after Alex and Ah Siu. It's as if Ching Ching became Mary this time around haha. It's also weird how Raj is a chef now and Ching Ching's father is now a policeman. The roles reversed. Also Yuki is now blind?! - I guess that's better tbh now she doesn't have to obsess over her youth and beauty.. I wonder if the Twilight Mansion is still got that mysterious quirk. It probably disappeared. Also I wonder why Old man Lam and young self is standing at the roof stroking the cat.
  • Woaaaaaaaah!!! Mind blown! The screenwriter is so good!! I wonder what happens in the ending of this drama. I hope it's a good ending as the drama is getting a dark turn now. My prediction is that Alex died in that plane as a plane crash incident which is quite sad :( Weird though I never saw her leave puddles of water when she walks. Does that suggest she drowned? Time will tell!
  • That's really sad the wife shouldn't ever have to experience that. Instead the husband put it all on himself by cheating with so many women. I wonder if he'll continue to cheat whilst being married. Once a cheater always a cheater.
  • @funnlim Yeah I do agree with you. The whole aspect of the child disappearing like he never existed was a bad ending to that story. It was quite heart wrenching. I don't understand what message the Producer is supposed to convey here. Its like having no child saves a relationship? That's all I got. Also yes, when Selena and Joel's characters slept together I thought was pretty rushed. I felt that the characters chemistry hasn't built to that stage yet. I see them as very good friends and Joel's character being clearly obsessed with her with I find creepy especially when he draws her and rings her doorbell 24/7. Either way it makes sense as the drama only has 20 episodes until it ends so I hope their relationship can build further.
  • @jimmyszeto I didn't realise this scandal only read about it now. This gives me the whole Jacqueline Wong and Andy Hui scandal vibe again.
  • @oligodendrocytes if it wasn't for his fling with the rich heiress, he would have been a lead many ions ago.
  • I remember that time Joel Chan won the award for Best Supporting Actor and shouted to the audience that the next time he wins would be for Best Leading Actor like Ruco Chan. Now is his chance! Hopefully he gets more lead roles, he's a good actor, likable and handsome.
  • I wish all the best for Selena Lee! I can't wait to see her appear in movies or maybe TV shows in the US. It's kinda sad that only some people now recognise her in this drama. I remember when she played in the drama Ghost Dragon of Cold Mountain where she also played 2 different roles and she was amazing in it. I was a bit sad that she wasn't recognised in that drama and didn't get an award because she really deserved it.
