• @oystergirl Yeah, I though I kinda wanted Sisley & Matt to get together, I felt like the only reason why the writers did was to get more sympathy for Matt's death. But honestly it felt strange. Sisley is earning my respect though! She did really well in the series but her character made no significant impact. I never really thought her acting was THAT bad but she used to have the tendency to scream her lines which is annoying if you have a whiney voice.
  • @jimmyszeto Yup, made no sense. Especially considering that the first thing to come out of his mouth when he woke from the hospital was, "Did they catch the criminal?", rather than inquiring about her well-being. From the look on her face when he asked, I thought for sure she would leave him for good this time around. But I guess the writers were trying to convince us that she had come to terms with the fact that his job will always take precedence over his personal life, and that she was finally willing to love him in spite of it. That, or she just stuck around more so out of pity than love.
  • @jimmyszeto True, the ending was very rushed (and anti-climactic, typical TVB). The Matt-Sisley story arc felt very choppy as a result. I agree that she's more watchable than a lot of the recent Miss HK contestants, which was why I had such high hopes for her in this series. Was expecting it to be her breakthrough role.
  • @oystergirl Couldn’t feel any connect between Ben and Grace and it didn’t make sense for Grace to accept him back when Ben hadn’t even slightly changed his attitude on his work. Quite crazy to have 2 characters who really wanted to die for their jobs...
  • @oystergirl I thought Sisley’s performance was decent and had chemistry with all 3 Ben, Matt and Oscar. There wasn’t enough time in the rushed ending for Sisley to grieve though so I felt she recovered too quickly. She definitely is more watchable than all the recent Miss HK contestants...
  • @kaylkuo @eleven I think the lack of quality time spent with his daughter and complete disregard for his health were more than sufficient to show his dedication to his job; no need to add Grace into the mix. In fact, I kind of wish they had paired him up with Sisley instead, since these two actually shared a mutual understanding for one another. Both bonded through having similar goals and were passionate about contributing to society, whereas he and Grace had little common ground, making their relationship feel very forced. The fact that they had nothing in common (aside from sharing a daughter) was probably the reason why they had zero chemistry.
  • @jimmyszeto lol, yeah, the writer was really grasping for straws with that comment. Guess I'm part of the minority who thought Sisley and Ben had better chemistry/connection in the show than she and Matt, perhaps because their scenes together were so limited. There wasn't much romantic development, aside from the repetitive flashbacks, so can't say I was sold on this pairing. As far as her performance, her crying scene was good, but that alone, isn't enough to warrant praise as an actress. After all, both Linda and Eliza have received the same praises in the past. So aside from that one scene, I still found the rest of her performance rather lackluster. I never got the sense that she was completely submerged in her role. To this date, Legal Mavericks remains the only series in which I think she truly shined.
  • @oystergirl I agree with @kaylkuo. He adds to Ben's character development. But it's true that she had no chemistry with Ben, making it feel boring to watch.
  • @oystergirl I wouldn't say that she was completely unnecessary. Her role served to highlight how committed Ben is to his work, to the point where he would drop his family with no hesitation whenever he is called in. Plus, with his daughter, we get to see his fatherly side, and the daughter gets involved with Philip's kid.
  • @coralie Not only the scene, but her entire role was unnecessary. They could eradicate her character completely from the show, and it would take nothing away from the story/plot. Her whole on-again, off-again relationship with Ben was so pointless and boring.
  • @oystergirl fortunately they do not have any kids. however her medical condition is worrying. depression is not easy to handle.
  • At least they don't have any children together, which makes a divorce/separation a lot less complicated (albeit, not any less painful), should she decide to go that route.
  • @oystergirl Cheating is by choice.. If one really listened to the clips.. the person who left the car wanted to send Jacqueline home first... IT was definitely by "choice!!" I agree hope both Sammi and Kenneth have the support system to carry through this situation. Hopefully, media will rest the case soon.
  • @oystergirl Agreed, I hope parts is along the same lines of that he feels as well. A very tough situation to shallow for sure.
  • @oystergirl I've done the whole 20 episodes so far. I can't get enough of it. yeh, the Grace character is pointless and is just there so there is someone to care for the daughter who i more significant in the storylines. Grace becoming less wound up though after Sing's brain injury but still annoying nevertheless with the tone o her voice.....
  • @jimmyszeto Speaking of pointless... I'm on episode 4, and I don't understand the purpose of Grace's character. You seem further along than I am, so I'm wondering if her relationship with Ben eventually does ANYTHING to drive the plot forward? Because right now, I feel like he'd be better off as a single dad without her in the picture, and it wouldn't take away from story, whatsoever.
  • @ricky721 Yeah, very tactful response; a bit uncharacteristic of him, lol. Still gotta commend the poised delivery though. Even if the response is curated, I hope his actual train of thought is somewhere along the same tracks, and that he isn't taking it too hard behind closed doors. He has always striked me as a decent guy.
  • @potatochip "Also, men need to stop thinking everyone is interested in them. Just because someone is gay does not mean they want to sexually harass another man." Agree. People tend to forget that gay people have specific standards/preferences, as well. Just because someone is gay doesn't mean they're going to crush on every man who breathes in their direction. So ridiculous.
  • He doesn't look drunk to me in the footage, just tipsy. You can tell by his expression that he had some (initial) reservations, which implies a degree of awareness. Either way, it's so laughable to me whenever someone calls cheating a "mistake". Inadvertently sending an email out to the wrong recipient is what you'd call a mistake. Cheating is a CHOICE!! Hoping Sammi and Kenneth have a good support system to carry them through this ordeal.
  • @oystergirl I can definitely see what you described happening. At the same time, though, babies are cute and you can't help but spoil them. Once they're older and their cuteness fades, then you stop wanting to spoil them lol. Or after spending all day with babies, you become immuned to their cuteness and they're not as special anymore. Therefore, you become less likely to spoil them. It really depends. I don't want to judge this couple's parenting skills so soon into their parenthood, so I reserve negative critique.
