“Four Amigos Bon Voyage” Opens to High Ratings
TVB’s travelogue program Four Amigos Bon Voyage <4個小生去旅行>, starring veteran actors Patrick Tse (謝賢), Bowie Wu (胡楓), Kenneth Tsang (曾江), and Joe Junior, debuted to high ratings on August 17. The comedic series about the four veterans taking trips around the world opened to 26 rating points—totaling 1.68 million viewers—on Monday night, one point higher than its predecessor’s debut rating in 2013. Majority of the viewers stayed tuned throughout the entire episode.
While promoting the series last week in a press conference, Patrick suddenly lashed out at Kenneth for “faking his illness” while filming the show, and attempted to slap him. Afterwards, the two actors said they didn’t have any more hard feelings for each other, but Kenneth revealed that he was not invited to Patrick’s celebratory banquet for the show.
Whether or not the veterans are now at odds, their friendship and closeness did show in the series. On Tuesday’s episode, Patrick, Kenneth, Bowie, and Joe explored the Moscow Kremlin, an air-raid shelter, and hitched a rid on the underground train. Patrick and Kenneth are polar opposites, but they expressed genuine concern and care for each other during filming and often joked about each other. When a fight broke out in the train, both Patrick and Kenneth wanted to see what was going on, but the staff convinced them otherwise, making a humorous scene.
The four elderly stars toured many historic monuments and locations. While making a wish in front of a pile of scrap, Patrick said, “I hope Bowie makes it to 105 years old. I hope [Kenneth’s] gout will get better. When they came upon a grand church, Patrick took off his glasses and silently prayed.
He confessed, “I did many bad things in the past.”
Kenneth defended Patrick and said, “He’s not a bad person, but this idiot always talk frivolously.”
