• Lisa is extremely privileged and has been known to be outspoken in the past so I don't doubt that she may have bullied this girl. Although Katie's responses seemed a little overexaggerated, I am more inclined to believe her over Lisa. I also noticed from the videos that her entire neck and part of her chest was covered with what looks like hives. Obviously, I don't know if she recently had any kind of allergic reaction to trigger that but I personally get hives when I am stressed out or going through high-anxiety situations.
  • @scarlett013 she’s def not, shock me to see her recognised as one. That’s why I stop watching the awards in recent years, it’s just people queuing for their turns. This year will be Mandy. I am guessing everyone in TVB was surprised when Ali won
  • @scarlett013 I can't really pinpoint scenes but her entire portrayal of a flirtatious career woman is solid throughout. Her cry scene was good. Maybe her character as the bff is just really likeable too
  • @conan2209 i feel that natalie tong is in that category!! waiting for a breakthrough where she plays a role completely not like herself before i would even consider her BA-worthy (ali was robbed of BA that year!!)
  • @luye @arc78 i also think winki deserves some recognition. pretty sure TVB would not give her BSA but hope she gets most improved! she is definitely worthy of that
  • @luye i think she meant that she's the equivalent to louis koo in that he's in like every big hk movie but she's the tvb drama version
  • @bubbles23 which parts of yoyo's performance were show stopping? not that i disagree, just curious which scenes come to mind. i find yoyo to be a competent actress and i like her but didn't feel like she had that much screen time in LAD? that said, i thought her recollection of the "dates" with mark ma were hilarious.
  • @jimmyszeto To be fair, his story arc and character in BOK was just terribly written and I'm not sure that any actor could have made it better? I actually like Billy and think that he has a lot of potential. He just needs to stop playing dumb roles. I enjoyed his performance in Two Steps From Heaven. That said, I feel like with the plot of this new one being so out of left field, there's a ton of room for things to be cringeworthy.
  • @tt23 i remember reading in a comment thread from Jaynestars that John dislikes it when people call him David
  • @scarlett013 omg yes Ron was pretty convincing as a vet in The Brink of Law. I really like Ron and think he has so much potential. I hope he gets different roles.
  • @scarlett013 Who is the Deputy Director of Jack's character? Maybe hes the big boss. KK? John Chiang (姜大衛)? KK Cheung (張國強)?
  • @scarlett013 I agree, Al Cappucino writers would want to sprinkle in a bit of Infernal Affairs for the sake of plot twists. We know that Jack didn't want to blow his chances of joining the police force so he ended his relationship with Kelly, the daughter of a triad leader. Fast forward, like Infernal Affairs, Jack is now a high-ranking official, the Chief Superintendent of the Police Force. Here's the peculiar part, if he is a mole planted by triads, which triad? who is the big boss? why did he help the Chiangs reclaim the title by stealing the dragon staff (龍頭棒) replica?
  • @scarlett013 oh and John is also referred to as David. It’s very confusing, I was confused when I first found out too lol.
  • @scarlett013 I do take back some comment from earlier in this thread about the female leads because Samantha is growing on me in this series and I think out of her three recent dramas, this is her best role. Kathy is okay and but I don’t think she adds anything to the show. And I’m sorry, I just don’t think anything Crystal does will make me like her, I personally find her very annoying and disingenuous. I think people look at the caliber of the male leads and what is a storyline with lots of potential so they want to see the female leads be able to match that caliber. Although to be fair, not many female artistes these days have that caliber. Crystal should definitely not be the first lead, it should be Samantha or Winki. I think both of them have had more air time than Crystal so far. Owen keeps surprising me every episode - I am so happy for him and hope he gets recognized. His chemistry with Vincent and Winki is incredible in this series. The scene from last episode of him and Winki in the bathroom after he got beat up was so heartwarming. Normally I find TVB makes those scenes soooo cheesy but this was super natural. Vincent is starting to shine through, I think yesterday was his best episode yet but the star here so far is really Owen
  • @scarlett013 ohhh that's so long ago don't even think I watched it :3
  • @bubbles23 i actually skimmed through his wikipedia to see if he has played a doctor before and turns out he was a vet in the brink of law! didn't watch it though so not sure if he was convincing
  • @scarlett013 I don't think he has! Though it would take some serious styling and character writing since Ron has zero doctor vibes. I'd like to see him play a lawyer more lol
  • @bubbles23 would actually be refreshing to see Ron in a doctor role!! has he done it before??
  • @ihearttvb I feel like Jack's character may have done something behind the scenes? I also feel like Jack might be a mole planted by the triads to play into the parody-trope of the drama overall (Infernal Affairs).
  • Thoroughly enjoying this so far so I hope the plot doesn't start to drag in the middle. Also hope they don't mess up the ending! I agree that Owen is outshining Vincent here and I realize how much I like Owen as an actor. I find him versatile and he has great comedic timing. His chemistry with all his costars has also really good so far. He and Vincent have been a duo I've adored since Legal Mavericks but I am enjoying the scenes with him and Winki equally as much. I also feel like he has more chemistry with Kathy Yuen than Vincent currently does. Regarding all the lady leads, I've been noticing a lot of people refer to them all as "nobodies"/unknown which I think is unfair. Kathy Yuen has been a film actress for over a decade. Samantha Ko, although I am not a fan of, has also been acting for quite some time. FYY and Serene also placed in their respective pageant performances and Winki, who is my favorite among the female cast so far has done well in almost all of her TVB appearances so far (except Airport Strikers but no actress could redeem such a terribly written character). That said though, I do think that some of the actresses are doing better than others. Never really enjoyed Samantha in her roles but I think she's doing very well here. On the flip side, Serene could be doing better but I think it's more so do to her voice/accent rather than the actual acting. The delivery of her dialogue makes her a bit awkward to watch. Also, minor but it's John Chiang is 姜大衛's name - not David Chiang :)
