Jayne: Is it too early to consider filming “Tiger Cubs”? I think the success of the drama is due to more compact story telling, with a high point in each episode. Something discussion worthy in each episode, as well as the more expensive budget for the filming.

  1. So far, I have watched this serie up to episode 2. The first episode was exciting because it had Kenneth’s great acting. Episode 2 was boring for me eventhough I like the main casts in this serie.

    1. i agree. episode 1 was thrilling and exciting but I think it must be because of ma ming because i feel the excitement went down in episode 2.

  2. I’m looking forward to the episode where Natalie is going to be in it. 😀
    Her acting has improved so much in the past year or so.

  3. My hunch was right JJ only sold Kenneth out so she can save him! I actually really like the Kenneth and JJ love line it’s so sweet! I read a spoiler that Jessica ends up dying 🙁

  4. Then why bother watching when all the spoilers are out? And my hunch was correct about the big time finale. Now I knew why not a hint of Kenneth’s reaction in episode 1 over her betrayal.

  5. Most probably kenneth and JJ had already planned this when they get caught. Everyone knew wat is going to happen when JJ is released. Use your brains to think!! There is don’t need to say “I knew it” or something like that. -.-

    1. Is your brain bigger? Why not think for the rest of us smaller brains one?

      1. LOL! Love your comments Funn! I really enjoy the series. I wish I understand Cantonese so I can catch up. The waiting is killing me…hehehe

  6. Bahaha SPOILER ALERT!! Spoiled the series for myself in a good way! I really enjoy Tiger Cubs but only one episode each week makes me anticipated for more. It’s nice how Joe and Jessica will return for a sequel even though they aren’t with TVB any more. Hopefully an movie or a sequel will be nice! Can’t wait to watch the rest of the series! Yeah 😀

  7. omg i hope nothing bad happens to oscar in the end! he’s my favorite, love how he winks haha

    1. Oh yes yes yes!!! The point in episode 2 when he winked at Jessica…SO CUTE!!! 😀

      So far, Tiger Cubs appears to be a very good series but it’s true that waiting a whole week just for a new episode feels fairly draggy. Oh well, all for a good series. 🙂

    2. Haha love Oscars wink!! In the 3rd episode last night did you see he wink to Christine K?? Cuteness 😀

      1. and his wink at her when they were in the bar in episode 2 was also adorable xD

    3. But she seems to be uninterested!! >;[[[ hahaha

    4. I’ve never paid much attention to Oscar and his acting prior to Tiger Cubs and I’ve heard on many occasions that he’s come a long way and his acting is now very good or at least on par. Now that I’ve watched 2 episodes, I agree that his acting has improved and I also find him to be very cute when he does his trademark wink. His hairstyle in the series also makes him stands out from the rest of the gang and suits him very well.

  8. Jessica looks cool in this serie. I recaled she’s ever played detective character. I like tiger cubs story line. So far 1st episode is better than 2nd one 🙂

  9. Thank you very much for the spoiler alert!! Why is there a necessary to elaborate in a detail manner. I love the idea of this series. No draggy plot, promising action in every episode. Too bad it only airs once every week. Really kill my patience to wait for every epi. Heard it previously that they will air it on both sat & sun . Now shorten to only once ? Anyone plz correct me .

    1. Agreed! TC plot not draggy totally! Except that Joe Ma is boring like hell and no personality. Oscar is much better to watch!

    2. Starting this week, they will air it on Sat (14) & Sun (15).

      1. @DC– Wow really? That is great. Thanks for the info

      2. NP~ It will air every Saturday & Sunday up to episode 9. Don’t know about the rest of the episodes yet. Hopefully the 4 last episodes will air on a weekday? 😀

  10. “Kenneth barges into the police station and beats up Oscar Leung until he coughs up blood! A massive gunfire will occur in the grand finale of Tiger Cubs, as the SDU officers combat the most dangerous criminal it has faced yet!”

    Looking great!

  11. 13 episodes just like Singaporean drama, Secrets For Sale. Thumbs up. Can’t wait to watch this!

  12. “In a SDU mission, Joe Ma suffered a bullet wound while trying to save Jessica Hsuan.” Didn’t quite happen yet…

  13. The info of article is not quite correct. Nothing has been happened yet for Joe & Jessica in ep3. Probably ep 4 or 5. In the other side, in an interview, Jessica revealed that her character in this serie will die at the end. How TVB make sequel? if yes, then no Jessica in or they have to make up twin sister which is rediculous 🙂 I like Jessica much in this character. She proves that she can act in many types of characters not to repeat on role 🙂 Good job Jessica even she’s now 41 but still look bold & young compared with new lines of actresses.

    1. Totally agree with your comment. I love Jessica in the show, she gives the refreshing feeling to the audience, so cool and I never think she could act Madam so well like this.

      In the other side, I love the way TVB let Jessica die in someway. Not boring because TVB a long time never make the leading role die =))

      1. “I love Jessica in the show, she gives the refreshing feeling to the audience, so cool and I never think she could act Madam so well like this.”

        Isn’t that what Jess is good at playing? She did the best in tough professional lady roles.

      2. Kidd, it is only that sort of roles Jess built her career on. So I don’t get why she is any different in Tiger Cubs. BUT in Tiger Cubs her character to me is suicidal and depressed. So I guess that vulnerability is something Jess rarely get to display.

  14. 1. First time I watched Him on screen after the forgettable what name series. Now I understand why girls flock to him, older sister A list Tavia notwithstanding. Not even hints of being bashed up when dating, or stripping to keep a certain rich old man smiling can keep bees away from honey.

    He reminds me of Louis Koo and Aaron Kwok, in their good ways, not a barbequed burnt Louis or the “Love love love you no end” Aaron, with a hand gesture as famous as Michael Jackson’s bandaged fingers in Cantopop. You know the one I mean: Put out your left hand, open your palm and twirl it around three times at each “Love” and shake your bon bon.

    Mark my words. This guy is going to the movies. And I am too polite to say what will happen to Tavia in my crystal ball.

    2. Grouse of the day: The gods are not fair. Vincent what his name has the same number of muscles (yeah, I counted!) and probably spent as much on gym membership fees as Him but this is a guy who only looks muscular naked! I mean it! Tear of his shirt and he looks like Incredible Hulk! Put on clothes and he looks like puny, weakling, crybaby mama’s boy!

    I swear I am not kidding. Poor guy! He should try to get a special exemption from the police for indecent behavior or something, because, you know he has to walk around naked everyday everywhere. That is the only way he can look good.

    3. A guy whom BATHED.

    Oscar Leung was initially a smelly, scruffy, dusty good for nothing who did not bath for weeks and this show managed to get him to bathe.

    How do I know? The smell is not emanating from his armpits anymore.

    I think he is a good actor. Previously I had to hold up my nose whenever he appeared on screen because the stench was too suffocating. Now he looks like he smells of baby talcum powder.

    4. Christine Kuo Versus Chamaine

    Battle of the two Cs?

    Hands up those who prefer a buxomly, air head who is full of irrelevant giggles and has a whole head of hair bands?

    Hands up those who prefer an aging, wise monitor lizard whose neck looks scaly?

    1. Canto,
      Him has already starred in a major film, Patrick Kong’s “Marriage With a Liar,” in which he had numerous topless scenes opposite costars Chrissie Chau and E-Cup Carol.

    2. Aaron Kwok > Him Law.

      As for Vincent, I think it’s because he’s tall. So, he didn’t look as muscular with his shirt on. Plus, his muscle really aren’t as big as Him’s. I saw the bathroom scene. Him’s muscles are bigger. I personally prefer his kind of muscles over the overly bulky type like Him’s.

      1. I have a soft spot for Vincent Wong because I really do think he can act. In Tiger Cubs he displayed all his character’s insecurity well, but unfortunately Him Him gets the attention because his character is all brash and all but somehow my eyes will shift to Vincent Wong and his stricken look when he knew he screwed up.

      2. Yes, it is because Vincent is very tall, so his muscles won’t look very prominent. I definitely prefer him lookwise because I swoon over tall guys, lol. Only exception is Joe Ma.

      3. @ Funn,

        I really like Vincent too. I wasn’t very keen on his character because in the first couple of episodes, he seemed to only be there to prop Him. I was thrilled to see character development for him in E3. Regardless of characters, my eyes will always go to Vincent over Him whose OTT acting makes me want to gauge my eyes out. Doesn’t help that his character is so obnoxious.

      4. I love Vincent when I watched him in Gun Metal Grey. I thought he relates to Joe Ma because they have the same look and height.

    3. Maybe another scandal will finish Him off, hence the end of his movie career dream? Of course he is going to the movies. Question is will he go to the awards?

    4. Canto:

      Why did u need to compare Christine to charmaine out of nowhere? Can u reference the pic that shows her scaly, lizard neck? Sheesh! Why complain about Oscar’s stinky armpit when your breath is just as bad.

      1. Ah, my bad! I got Jessica’s name wrong.

        Not Charmaine.

        But sorry if I offended anyone. Don’t mean to…!

  15. The third episode of “Tiger Cubs” is 30 pts, peaking at 31 pts.

  16. I do hope Jessica don’t get killed by the end of this series

  17. 4 more episodes to go but have not seen love spark between Joe & Jessica yet. So the sequence of Tiger Cubs is inevitable.
    Hope Jessica doesn’t die. If yes then how the sequence is? Jessica said TVB confirmed there is seq & invited her in.
