    Angela Tong

    If you have read my review of 2005, you already know my feelings towards Angela Tong. Well if you didn’t, let me tell you them [before-today] Basically I liked her in her various supporting roles. In Life Made Simple, her role as Ah Ho was sympathized by many… I can’t say it had that big of an effect on me to turn into a fan. Well anyways it wasn’t her role that I wasn’t too happy about… it was more of the popularity that she received after Life Made Simple. Don’t get me wrong I’m happy she got more popular but there is always a point where you say its too much. With winning Next Magazine Most Popular TV Artist… well that is something where no supporting actress has gone before. She beat all of the most popular TVB artist currently! [Jessica Hsuan and Kenix Kwok included!] I’m seriously thinking she will be the next Sheren Tang [something I predicted before] I thought that she would place in the top ten but to get first…I can’t say she truly deserved it. Her performance in Life Made Simple in terms of acting was anything but spectacular; I can name so many other supporting actors that had phenomenal performance yet they did not receive much for their performance, what a shame.

    Ok besides Angela Tong shocking number 1 lets look at the ranking.
    Ranking order:

    Jessica getting into top ten was not a surprise… nor was it any shock she placed so high. We all know that Next, TVB, HK, loves Jessica…

    Bosco, Myolie, and Bernice… all part of the “younger generation” was a surprise surprise to getting in top 10. Previous awards were given to the older more experienced actors part of “older generation”. I remember Ron Ng getting on the list was a big deal… but now three of them got in and placed so much higher too! Bosco achieving 3rd! Myolie and Bernice placing 7th and 8th respectively. Much higher then Ron’s 10th place last year. I know there is a lot of media with Bernice but I didn’t know she was that popular in HK.

    This ranking nicely ties into a future article, that I can now tie into it and use as proof.

    3 males in top 10! It is total Female domination! Girl Power!

    Top 10 TV Program

    I don’t think there is much importance to this… I have no real objections

    Always Ready
    This series received so low ratings, kinda a surprised its even here.

    Central Affairs
    An ATV series in here? ATV must be celebrating.

    Overall:

    2.“Younger Generation” artist made top 10

    Triumphs in the Skies 2 back on schedule with Francis Ng?
    Credits to Almond @ http://forums.cinple.net/newtvb/index.cgi?read=253247

    Francis Ng said that he may start shooting the sequel this May or June.

    Not much info in the article and there is no mention on the cast, whether the orginally planned Triumph in Skies 2 cast will be in it as most of the cast have projects already.

    Excerpt from news: 新片「放逐」拍了大半年,幾位帥哥檔期全被拖著,為了好戲都咬牙忍著,吳鎮宇說:「這是一部值得去拍的電影,急不得吧。」他透露5、6月應會接拍港劇「衝 上雲霄」續集,原來觀眾除了黑社會,也愛看他文藝戲和談情說愛,所以這次打算拿出自己買的名牌衣服增帥,非要讓觀眾愛死他不可。

    Full article: http://forums.cinple.net/newtvb/index.cgi?read=253266

    So Francis agree to do a sequel now? why the change all a sudden? there is too little info, but I'm really curious who is going to be in it. Because of the filming dates Francis mentioned it is unlikely Liza, Bosco, and Kenneth will be in it...

    Jessica might still be in it as Do Chueng Fun Wan filming should be done by June but will she film two series in one year? well its not in her contract...

    LWOLAP vs. UTCOL, Why the Ratings?
    Submitted by Sidney
    Inspired by your post “HK Audience: What’s Up” I have decided to do a little bit of comparisons between LWOLAP and UTCOL, mostly for 2 reasons: 1) I’m bored out of my mind in my Organic Chemistry class and 2) just because I want to know, too. hehe…=D

    VS.

    LWOLAP vs. UTCOL

    Lethal Weapons of Love and Passion. One of TVB’s most talked about and anticipating series ever! So why are the ratings so bad? Is it because of the storyline? the cast? the genre? I don’t know. What’s the most surprising is that a series like Under the Canopy of Love could way surpass them, getting a peak of 37 pts for their finale! That’s crazy ratings, when I found the ending just average! Here is what I’ve compared between the two:

    The Love Triangle:

    *Charmaine + Raymond + Sonija*

    The deceitful Sonija; playing with Raymond’s heart to the end. Raymond, oblivious to Sonija’s lies and blinded from Charmaine’s love. Charmaine, naïve but faithful; giving so much, but receiving so little. A typical love triangle that have the audience hating one side (Sonija) and loves the other (Charmaine). Who should Raymond go with? Does it matter? Obviously not! Since the ratings have been so horrible.

    *Bosco + Niki + Kevin*

    Kevin, a wonderful guy; smart and successful, but not cherishing what he had until it’s too late. Niki, a very naïve girl that thinks of others before herself; gives her full trust to people without expecting it to be returned. Bosco, a very sensitive guy, who’s loyalty to his friends and family is beyond limits. An absolute classic with a very original storyline. With fresh chemistry, and a little humor to added to it, it’s understandable that the ratings are good. Even I can’t decide whom TVB should pair whom: Niki w/ Bosco or Niki w/ Kevin. hmm…

    The Chemistry:

    I don’t know how others view this, but I find the chemistry between Sonija, Raymond, and Charmaine in LWOLAP so awkward! The age difference is getting into me the most. No matter how young and beautiful Sonija and Charmaine looks, they’re just so much older than Raymond! Especially when they have to call him 大哥, it makes no sense! Don’t think me wrong, I’m a diehard Raymond and Charmaine fan (Sonija? ehh…) but for them as a couple…not good. Bad call from TVB to expect great chemistry from them. Like TVBsquare once said, “Hydrogen plus Oxygen equals water, it is the concept of chemistry.” I say, chemistry should not only encompass hydrogen and oxygen, but other elements as well. Making H2O = TNT (a bomb!), leaving lasting impressions on the viewers. TVB did just that, but did H2O + TNT = a diffuse unit, unable to spark an interest among us viewers.

    UTCOL, on the other hand, is very simple production, with no exciting fight scenes or dramatic sound effects. Yet the chemistry of the cast is what draws us on along with it; wanting to continue to share the laughter, share the moment, and share the love in watching the series. The chemistry between Niki, Bosco, and Kevin is not just a regular H20 chem, but a bomb! (TNT). No way can it be great with just Kevin and Niki or Niki and Bosco or Bosco and Kevin. It has to encompass all 3 for it to make it work! It doesn’t have to be all about love (but it’s better since it did! hehe…), but also had friendship, family, and many laughs that made us like it more and more. A complete success! Never in a million years, will I find such chemistry! I guess as TVBGeneration once said “TVB is home to several underdogs who are waiting to bite back.” I say, Under the Canopy of Love proves her theory right. They do bite back! With vengeance!

    The Performance:

    *Niki Chow (UTCOL) vs. Charmaine Sheh + Sonija Kwok (LWOLAP)*

    Ok, I’m pretty sure, many of you will automatically think that Charmaine’s acting (& Sonija? ehh…) would beat Niki’s hands down; mostly because of their experience in the industry for so many years. BUT, I found Niki’s character very enjoyable in UTCOL. Not great, but good. Improving slowly with every series she does. (This is Niki’s 3rd series with TVB.) What I found in Charmaine and Sonija’s acting in LWOLAP is that it is so similar to Perish in the Name of Love’s character! But besides the point that they both know kung-fu in this one, (hee yah!) and were sisters in the other, their performance is only so-so. Charmaine’s acting is good. I love her, but there’s no improvement. Nothing “wow” or “Oh my god!” about it. Just good, as usual. Sonija? Ehh…I’m not even going to waste my time with her. (if you guys don’t know by now, I’m not a Sonija Kwok fan; especially not since she stole part of Louis Koo from Jessica Hsuan in ASITP!) I don’t know if it’s a curse on Charmaine right now or not, but her series are just not doing so well when aired. For example: her series, Yummy Yummy, average performance, average ratings; Always Ready, cute character, but gets draggy, again, bad ratings!; Leathal Weapons of Love and Passion, good acting, but nothing special, bad bad ratings. I guess the audiences are waiting, just as I am, for something special coming out of Charmaine’s performance. Niki?...she’s doing pretty good in ratings. Most of her series are really fresh and funny. For example: The Gentle Crackdown; so funny! First time I’ve seen her, okay acting, w/ very high ratings! Under the Canopy of Love, improved on acting, 30+ pts in ratings (average!). I’m beginning to think if TVB really did give the right award to the right person (most-improved actress)! hmm…nope, I don’t think so (not yet, that is).

    *Raymond Lam + Bosco Wong (LWOLAP) vs. Kevin Cheng + Bosco Wong (UTCOL)*

    This is a definite, hard one to compare; with both sides having TVB’s most promoted young actors (Raymond, Bosco, and Kevin) and both sides having Bosco Wong in it! (hehe… =D )making it real hard for me to compare without getting some fans mad! But as Toomanysidesofme once said, “We all have our own views, our own thoughts. I just like to share mine and to inform you guys recent Stuff about TVB!” I agree with what she said, so I’m saying, I’m going to go on typing and not caring what you think! (Please don’t “bash” me!) In LWOLAP, Raymond did an okay job. Not great, not bad, and not much excitement goes on around him. I’m just not interested in his series, like I used to. I don’t know if it’s his fault or is it TVB’s fault for having cast him in such poor storylines, but I do find him having the same curse as Charmaine: Yummy Yummy and LWOLAP. *Hint to TVB: if you guys want better ratings and make more money, don’t cast them together for anymore series. Failed in both modern and ancient!* Will he improve? I would hope so, since I’m a fan of his, but it all depends on HK audience to support him and decide. Kevin Cheng, in my opinion, is not the greatest actor nor is he the cutest or youngest out of the bunch, but acceptable. I find his acting just average, not much difference from his other series I’ve seen in the past. But have to agree with the other Niki-Kevin fans out there; they’re just so cute on-screen! Without Niki and Bosco, supporting him in UTCOL, making him look great, I would have just skipped Kevin in this review! Bosco…Bosco…Bosco. Got 3 words for him: You the man! I’m beginning to like him more and more. Since he was in both LWOLAP and UTCOL, I guess it’s not his fault that the ratings are so good in one and not good in the other; mostly because his character is about the same: funny and innocent at the beginning, and got more serious towards the end. But just look at his performance lately! Besides counting LWOLAP, all his others series are in top ratings! War of In-Laws, Life Made Simple, Under the Canopy of Love, etc. Every series is different, every character is different, and every cast is different, but he’s still does an amazing job. I know, I know, you’re probably thinking that other actor/actresses are affecting the ratings, too, besides Bosco, but I’m talking about Bosco right now, so needed something to back my theories, making him look good! (excuse this one time please! Thanks! =D)

    Overall, here is what I think HK audience likes:

    They like comedy. (Who wouldn’t?!) They like drama. (Who wouldn’t?!) They like Bosco. (I’m assuming he’s a good reason for high ratings, but Who wouldn’t?!) They like something simple and enjoyable, that’s easy to understand without using any brain juice (UTCOL + simple storyline = high ratings; LWOLAP + complicated storyline = low ratings). I don’t know if my analysis is right or wrong, but it’s all my opinion. There maybe no curse on Charmaine or Raymond. And maybe I’m just over thinking everything I said earlier! I don’t know! But what I do know is that Lethal Weapons of Love and Passion, a much anticipated series, has been a flop, while an underrated, “underdog” Under the Canopy of Love has been a HUGE success. Life is forever full of wonders and surprises, and TVB ratings/series are no different. Here’s one more advice to TVB: keep it real, keep it simple, keep it fresh. That’s the key to “keep” us, fans, coming back.

    A Different Side of Ron Ng
    A Different Side of Ron Ng
    By: Sidney

    For the people who know me, I’m not a huge Ron Ng fan, and I don’t plan on ever be! I don’t know why everyone is so obsessed with him, and I seriously don’t know why everyone thinks he’s the next “big thing” of the newest generation of “Siu Sungs.” But I have to admit, my perspective of Ron has changed, all due to the latest news of him and his unzipped pants incident. Don’t get me wrong, I feel bad for him for performing in front of a crowd and having his flies undone, but I’m looking at Ron in a whole new way, different that I used to, but in a good way, I suppose! (hehe...=D)

    I will have to acknowledge now that Ron may be the hardest worker out of all TVB history of “Siu Sungs!” Just look what all he has accomplished in his few short years in the entertainment business! First, he starts off as a dancer, moving on to be a supporting actor, and goes on to being a full-time Male Lead of TVB series. Gaining many fans for his bad boy image in Triumph in the Skies, Ron skyrocketed to stardom; being promoted heavily by TVB’s top executive, Ms. Lok Yi Ling. How can life be just not perfect for him! After debuting his singing potential (I suppose) in his duets with Myolie Wu and Tavia Yeung, Ron got the opportunity to sing the sub-theme song to 2005’s hit series, Revolving Doors of Vengeance; landing him a contract with top music company, BMA, to start having his own album released! Although I’ve made it all exciting and interesting about his career, I still wasn’t very impressed with any of them: not his singing, not his dancing, not his acting. But what I do find most impressive about Ron is that he’s working non-stop, and still be able to add another credit of accomplishments he has achieved recently. Besides being a dancer, an actor, and a singer, Ron has now become a flasher, too! Not many contracted-TVB artists that I know of can actually do that, so “Hats off to you, Ron!” (hehe…) I’m beginning anticipate more and more upcoming news of him, never knowing what more of Ron Ng will be “unveiled” to us next!

    Toomanysideofme opinion: There isn't much else I can say... whether you like Ron or not, you have to admit he works hard to get where he is. And its pretty impressive how far he has gotten is such a short amount of time.

    Bobby and Jessica starts filming Do Chueng Fung Wan
    Bobby and Jessica films for new series

    "Bobby and Jessica are again colleagues for this new series as gamblers.
    Even their smiles are like each others."


    Translations by Sidney @ http://toomanysidesofme.blogspot.com/

    The other day, Bobby Au Yeung and Jessica Hsuan were in Mongkok filming for their new series Do Cheung Fung Wan (賭場風雲). Due to the location is a “tourist spot”, the tourists started using their cameras and phones to take pictures of them! After posing with Jessica for so many pictures, Bobby had to dodge away from getting anymore pictures taken.

    In the new series, Bobby will play a poor, useless gambler. Wearing just a t-shirt, an oversized shirt, loafers, and a huge belly, Bobby was ready to work. Reporters were questioning Bobby if the belly was indeed actual his, but before Bobby could respond, the staffs has already answered that it was! Bobby explained that he has gained about 7-8 pounds for this role. Saying that it was easy gaining the extra weight, Bobby says “I have a huge breakfast everyday, and every night have a midnight snack. Wake up in the middle of the night eats again!” (wow!) The cast has been playing with Bobby and his tummy, constantly lifting his shirt to take a peek at it, having Bobby to say, “Don’t! Don’t lift it so high for everyone to see! It’s not good for them to see my "fake" tummy!”

    During filming, there are always people taking photographs of them and a guy in a suit even approach Jessica, asking her to take a picture with him. Jessica was asked if she minded the interruptions, saying that, “No, I don’t mind. You’ll get use to it. My Chinese isn’t too great, so it was kind of hard to understand them.” Bobby added that “You have to socialize with the crowd or they’ll think you’re rude. Only when we escape from them do we get a breath of relief.”

    In order to prepare for the filming of the new series, Jessica was earlier spotted in one of Macau’s casinos. Although Jessica didn’t gamble herself, she noticed people’s reactions and emotions before, during, and after they’ve gamble; getting to know what the atmosphere feels like. When Bobby was asked if he went to observe, too, Bobby jokingly said “Of course not! I don’t need to go! I go there all the time! No, no, I don’t gamble. I loose every time, so why bother!”

    Jessica buys Jewelry/Diamonds for her Mom
    Jessica buys Jewelry/Diamonds for her Mom
    Translation by Sidney @ ToomanysidesofTVB

    Jessica has been seen everywhere lately! First, not too long ago, Jessica was spotted cleaning house on a shopping spree, and now she’s spotted buying jewelry! Just the other day, Jessica went to Master Price by King Fook jewelry store to do some browsing. Happen to find something that caught her eye, Jessica tried some on and ended up purchasing 3 pieces of trinkets worth up to $100,000 HKD! But since Jessica is a regular customer to the store, the jewelry store gave her a discount for her purchase. (they should! Who wouldn’t give Jessica a discount! hehe…=D) Continuing on her shopping, Jessica was later seen at a HMV video store to buy some DVDs, ringing up a cash total of about $700 HKD. The reporter that followed Jessica went back to the jewelry and asked the clerk what she bought. The clerk said that Jessica just bought 3 items: one for herself, one for her mom, and the last one for someone but unknown.


    1st pic:
    Jessica immediately tried on a piece of jewelry and bought it. Is that a bit rushed?


    2nd pic:
    Jessica spent so much time at the jewelry store, picking out them out that she needs to sit down to continue shopping.
    3rd pic:
    The 3 trinkets bought by Jessica were worth up to $100,000 HKD, but the store gave Jessica a discount for her purchase.

    HK audience, What is up?
    So Under the Canopy of Love received at peak rating of 37, a somewhat staggering number for that kind of series. While just before UTCOL, Lethal Weapons of Love and Passion recieve horrific ratings... so what is up HK? Is it cast, plot, genre?

    Lets take a look though a board perpective on TVB in recent years, what does HK want? what are they willing to watch? What's up or should I ask, what is down?


    coming soon...

    Upcoming TVB Forumla "Bar Benders"


    So... it offically Bar Benders now, lol it changed from Face to Fate to Le Femme Desperado to finally Bar Benders.. hmm either of the three which ever did air it wouldn't make that much of a difference but Bar Benders is a bit better.

    Bar Benders, Adam Cheng, Anne Heung, Louisa So, Sammul Chan, and Leila Tong

    hmm... a lawyer series? I have no clue about this series.

    Cast: Adam Cheng+Anne Heung+Loisa So for older generation and Sammul Chan and Leila Tong to balance it with the younger generation. Hmms, the cast is okay I guess not really a viewer grabber though.

    Story: I have no clue but Leila as a Lawyer seems cool.

    Pairings: Adam Cheng and Anne Hueng or Louisa So?? Isn't he too old?
    Sammual and Leila is really refreshing I have to say.

    Overall: Leila doesn't pull me in series as much as it used to, I liked her alot before but somehow it faded... I don't know if I'm going to watch it, I would rather rewatch Files of Justice for some laywer action!

    TVB: 5 W's and a H


    Who-
    Twin of Brothers
    You wonder who’s the father of Nancy’s Child, is it Ron?

    What- Burning Flames II
    You sit there in shock, saying WHAT! The scriptwriter killed Wong Hei! And made his daughter suffer, losing first her mother and now her father. Poor girl…we cried with and for her, such talented little girl

    Where- A Step in the Past
    Haha, this is one of the funniest scenes in this series. Louis is transported back in the past. He meets this old couple, who are very hospitable to Louis. He ask them where they are… the old couple scratches their heads. And says that a village, would know. Louis asks if it’s close. They said it not far; go east for two days and then south for another day. Louis then sarcastically says it’s not that far.

    When-
    Hard Fate
    Several whens in this series, first, Damien’s flashbacks into his past, I thought the flashback was a little to far back. He was supposed to 18 at the time, added to the number of year since then… I was trying to figure out how far back it was. Also at the end Nikki woke up from her coma… you say when did she wake up! She gets married to Kevin and all of a sudden next you see her grave, you shout WHEN again!

    Why- Detective Investigations Files IV
    Breakup scene- Louis picks Anne, leaving Jessica. They say a few words, Louis crying; they hug… she walks away crying. You sit there crying with them, and ask yourself Why can’t they be together?

    How- Life Made Simple

    Ah Wong (Roger Kwok) running with the Baby, down the stairs, with each fight of stairs the baby grows right in Ah Wong’s Hands… seems like months passed as Ah Wong reaches the bottom of the stairs, How? Haha at this rate the baby would be in school by the time they reach the hospital. Then later, less then a day the baby also had a full head of hair!

    Thanks to Amanda for helping me with the Who =)

    Younger Generation: Hidden Beauty? Part III
    This is my last installment of the "No Makeup" I realized that I had one more I forgot to do, the last two I did back to back. I'll let Asia over by her TVBGeneration to handle this feature.

    ShirleyYeung


    Haha she reminds me of Ernie! I seen worse pictures of her, but I'm not sure where...

    Bernice Liu



    I see her as one with Hidden Beauty, she just looks a bit pale here...

    Michelle Ye



    She doesn't look bad, I see other picture, like most others they just look like 5 shades paler

    Belinda Hamnett



    ok she doesn't fit this grouping but.... whoa... its bad

    Celeb-Bashing

    Celeb-Bashing

    New TVB Series Discussion Forum otherwise known as the winglin/cinple forums, what ever happened to that forum? Now it all just bashing everyone right and left, there is still news, and sometimes on occasion a good conversation/debate. Somewhere along that way something went wrong, you started to see hate threads more and more. People moved from one actor to the next. I actually can remember the order since the end of last summer. As much as I can hate dislike an actor I would never start one. One its just not nice and two, I would be bashed and clobbered by fans (which has happened to me in the past), the last reason there is no point, why bring up the bad part of someone?

    Posted by Mercury

    “Last year is Ron-bashing, this year is Raymond-bashing. Next year will most probably be Bosco-bashing year, and the year after the next will be Kenneth-bashing year. It's good that Sammul has gone to china before his turn comes.”

    I have to agree with him, this is getting out of control. There is always someone next that people will bash…. Sigh. And the added Sammul part was pretty funny.

    Now you might not agree, and maybe part of this bashing yourself. Now lets imagine that the next person that is bashed was your favorite celeb, now you wouldn’t be too happy right? And you probably defend your idol, yet they keep coming. Sigh poor you not able to fend them off. But now lets think about, why should you have to defend your idol in the first place. Why? What a waste of energy and time…

    And most bashings ends up getting personal. Which happens all the time. People take it personal, and they start attacking each other… name calling, and just plain idiocy. Its like we are all back in Kindergarten fighting over a toy…

    http://images.asianfanatics.net/gallery/albums/userpics/59155/0314enew01b1.jpg We all have our own opinions. Lets respect that, but we need to have self-control!

    Long story short if we stopped bashing people! I can’t say that I was never a part of either sides to this, Even I have gotten caught up in it, which I’m not too proud of.

    QuackieChau, the wise person she is, posted this in response to all this

    “I like Ray a lot, too, but what can I do. To each his own. If someone hates Ray so much, no matter how much I stick up for him, they're still gonna hate him. Then, not only do I have to put up with seeing senseless insults thrown at him, I have to get frustrated trying to justify why I like him, which I shouldn't have to do in the first place. No one has to agree with me. If they can see (or at least respect) my point of view, great. If not, oh well.

    I like Raymond Lam. End of story.

    Wise words, wise words

    Upcoming TVB Forumla "The Bitter Bitten" and "Le Femme Desperado"
    Upcoming TVB formula “The Bitter Bitten” and “Le Femme Desperado”


    The Bitter Bitten, starring Benny Chan, Michael Tong, Shirley Yeung, Linda Chung
    Airing after Under the Canopy of Love.

    I saw all of the trailers =) but I have no idea what to make of it… It’s an odd mixture and it’s a about a circus? Hmm… lets look at what TVB has cooked up.

    Cast: Benny Chan + Michael Tong + Shirley Yeung + Linda Chung
    I like Benny, I like Linda, Shirley well it depends, but certainly Michael is a plus plus!

    Story: I’m not so thrilled with it revolving around a circus…Linda trying to become a great acrobat? Can’t say I’m too thrilled but at least a fresh idea. Plus it’s suppose to be suspenseful, some mystery in a circus?

    Pairings: Well it looks like a Love SQAURE… Michael likes Linda, Shirley likes Benny, and what ends up happening (just a guess) Michael and Shirley and Benny and Linda?
    Well Michael and Shirley’s kiss looks pretty good to me. I can see some chemistry.

    Overall: The Cast + Circus idea + The Kiss + the odd title = I say go give it a shot, at least I will.

    Check out MetalAZNWarrior's awesome site on Bitter Bitten
    http://www.virtuesofharmony.net/bitterbitten/

    Le Femme Desperado, starring Sheren Tang, Melissa Ng, Raymond Lam, Kenneth Ma, Kate Tsui. Airing after Safe Guards.

    I have read some articles, seen some pictures of them filming. I have to say what was TVB thinking?

    Cast: The cast spells disaster, you have Sheren Tang, Melissa Ng, Raymond Lam, Kenneth Ma, Kate Tsui. Not saying that they are bad or anything but none of them have enough power to bring in the viewers. Sheren, Melissa, and Raymond are all pretty good actors, but they alone cannot spell good ratings. Kenneth is too new and still building up him fan base and Kate, I guess same as Kenneth. Don't get me wrong I like Sheren, Melissa, and Kenneth very much!

    Story: I don’t know much but something about Melissa being pregnant somewhere along the story…it talk about how hard it is to be a women, hmm girl power! thats a plus. Oh yeah I heard a bed scene? hmm... there isn't too many of those in TVB series. [oh I just think back to DIF IV =)]

    Parings: I see no chemistry with any of the pairings… hey I could be surprised. You can yell at me then but for now I don’t see any… what was TVB thinking, did they run out of TVB actors to pair with Sheren and Melissa?

    Overall: I say Skip it, sorry guys I’m just not interested. Hey if I’m wrong, tell me!
