• @oligodendrocytes I agree, is definitely a weird number to end with, but I feel like that means they can air episode 21 and 22 on a Saturday and Sunday.
  • @scre I really don't understand tvb.... They have a bunch of stuff filmed a year ago that they won't release and rather air a Chinese drama and then goes ahead to air that drama filmed this year... They are really stacking up the Best Actor noms but I think the female side is rather lacking... I can only see Mandy winning it... Can't imagine Sam or Kelly getting nominated.
  • @tt23 Yes, those dates are correct. They definitely want to finish the year strong with these to anticipated sequels.
  • @scre I don’t think they dated. It was the fan who wished they did.
  • @scre yes I think that would be a fresh pairing too. I miss Ruco in those lighthearted family/office dramas, but then again he's older now so dunno if he will deliver the same vibes again. I think aside from Nancy his onscreen romances aren't too great, dunno if it's bad writing or he just can't channel the chemistry. His brother sister relationship with GraceW was way better. We need Ruco to play an anti hero or a villain again. @potatochip I didn't think Ben did that poorly in The Defected, but literally everyone outshone him, he became the lemon. From Benz Hui to Ben Wong, to Oscar Leung to Sisley. Literally everyone else was more believable and delivered.
  • @scre Oh what!! I didn’t know Ruco and Nancy dated
  • @potatochip I agree AFWFW was good, but not worth winning all those awards back in 2016. I was thinking Ali and Ruco would be something interesting and fresh for both of them but I am not sure, I think Ali is still not in good terms with tvb.
  • @scre @bubbles 23 I agree that even though his status dropped, he is still going to be lead for some time. AFWFW was above average, but it was overhyped and then that caused a backlash. It shouldn't have done the blind plot point and had Ruco become a sappy love idiot constantly chasing after Nancy. The break ups were repetitive. He should have been more mature and focused on his parents' deaths instead. TUA was a raunchy, poorly written mess that was a waste of everyone's talents. Jazz Boon is a one trick pony. Burning hands was also cliche and did not focus on the fun deception parts but got into the goopy romantic nonsense. Succession War was actually pretty good but no one watched it. If finally let him be more of a dramatic actor. The storyline did falter because it did not go far enough to make him ore despicable. Ruco is probably the best lead for fighting and action series, but those tend to be poorly written. They need to put him back into dramas. Besides Nancy, Kristal and possibly Selena, he has had weak lead actresses to work with. It's a shame. Ben Yuen was very likeable in LW2 and Threesome, even though his acting still needed improvement. The Defected was his golden chance with a character/storyline that was made to win awards. But he really failed to deliver, painfully so.
  • @hbc1 Its basically the same thing, the only difference is that its filmed in Thailand. I think Nancy isn't in it because she and Ruco dated a few years ago and its kind of awkward for them to film together.
  • @bubbles23 The thing about Ruco is that he needs to stop making fighting and action series with Jazz Boon. Its always the same cast and plotline and I feel like the audience are tired of it. I know he is more of an action series actor but I feel like he should try other genre. For example I think he did really good at Brothers Keeper. The problem with Benjamin Yuen is that he failed to deliver with his role last year in The Defected where everyone was hyped about. That's why he went to main lead role to to 4th male lead in LW3 and 3rd male lead in TMD
  • @potatochip Even though Ruco hasn't been onscreen for quite a long time and his status has dropped quite a bit. I still think he is a top 5/6 actor in the tvb. He can easily be the main lead in any series.
  • @scre I guess we can say the same about LF then lol. Kenneth ended up with arguably the best image out of all of them, if not the most $$$. He's the real winner here lol
  • @bubbles23 I mean if Wayne wins again he will be the tvb actor to have the most ba awards won, so I guess it can be some kind of motivation for him. IMO kenneth won it last was more of tvb giving him the award for him not winning all those years before rather than his performance. You can make the case that he should have won at least 2 before winning it this year. And also its not kenneth fault for LF,Sammul,Bosco and Ron to leave tvb and join other companies.
  • @scre the way I see it is that even though Wayne has outperformed himself again, winning the BA again probably won't do him anything. It's not even that they are promoting younger actors, imo it's that they aren't promoting ones with talent with a heavyweight drama, so now it's almost like a "time for you to win". For real would Kenneth win last year if Bosco/LF/Ron/sammul didn't leave tvb? Tvb has dropped value in everything, from sets to cast to awards, we could say it again but where else will we watch canto shows lol.
  • @scre Raymond’s acting is meh, all he has is his looks. Joel easily outperform
  • @tt23 The problem about the BA award is that it has lost its value in the recent years. Tvb will rather give it to the younger actors they want to promote or with the biggest fan base instead of the ones who really deserved. That's why I don't see the older actors (Bobby, Roger and Wayne) winning again. For example: Wayne performance in DBZ imo its the best so far, but he will probably ended up not even getting nominated.
  • @scre ||even if Raymond Lam has an average performance he is still winning Ba Cue Kenneth Ma..... Lol
  • @bubbles23 I feel like since a lot of people are excited about Raymond Lam return ( I am not that excited, I think he should stick with the film industry) and also Line Walker its a co-production with big sponsors and companies, the spent a lot of money making this series. Its easily tvb most successful franchise in the last decade. I feel like even if Raymond Lam has an average performance he is still winning Ba
  • @scre I wanna complain about these random china productions cause when they air these usually in Americas we're stuck with some other shtty dubbed series that no one watches. They really don't wanna any competition for LF lol.
