Time to stick to TVB dramas now…


TVB dramas in the first quarter of the year are usually not of those highly-anticipated productions. Those series would be usually forgotten later on and would not be emphasized in TV awards presentation which takes place annually in December. ‘Inbound Troubles’ starring Roger Kwok and Wong Cho Lam would be the exception since the series which is aired in January this year received good rating and overwhelming positive reviews. After that, there appears to be no more good series for me to look forward to, until now…

Started airing last month, ‘A Great Way to Care 2’ is a sequel to the original that was released few years ago that centered on psychological issues in humans which police force and a group of psychologists cooperate to deal with. I didn’t watch the first one, but then I took the time to watch its sequel. And I think I made the right decision. So far, ‘A Great Way to Care 2’ is a good series starring Alex Fong, Yoyo Mung, Tavia Yeung, Ben Wong, Edwin Siu, Aimee Chan, and several others. This time, it goes to a much ‘scarier’ and horrible psychological-based crimes especially the last case involving Tavia Yeung portraying as one of the main characters. This series is going to end this weekend. So, I’m looking forward to how thing ends up here in this drama which is expected to go very exciting in its last few episodes.

More about the series will be shared later on in my review over this drama once I finished watching it by this weekend. So far, so good. But still there is something not very good out of it. Anyway, let’s move on. At another time slot, there is a drama called ‘Bullet Brain’ starring Wayne Lai and Pierre Ngo. I’m a bit ‘sick’ of Wayne Lai already, but since this drama is by Lee Tim Sing, the man behind successful work like ‘Rosy Business’ and ‘No Regrets’, I decided to watch the drama too. However, after watching its first few episodes, I decided to drop it. It’s quite confusing, literally mess-up, and there seems to be no point of having this drama at all. Too much Columbus (character by Wayne Lai), too much of nonsense exaggeration, no sense of story flow, and too much weaknesses found. Quite disappointed.

After ‘A Great Way to Care 2’ comes to an end this week, there would be a new drama replacing it next week. It would be ‘Beauty at War’ which is an indirect sequel to the critically-acclaimed ‘War and Beauty’ released many years ago. It’s similarly about fighting between women in the palace. But this time, there is no more Charmaine Sheh, Gigi Lai and Maggie Cheung. Instead, the drama had Ada Choi and Christine Ng now joining Sheren Tang for the much anticipated ‘dirty’ battle in the palace. Looking forward to it eventhough I don’t think it would be better than its predecessor. But now, it appears that there would be not much of ‘attacking’ between concubines anymore but rather on something else. Hmm…let’s see how it works once it starts airing. More better TVB dramas are expected beginning second quarter of the year, and starting from now, I have to stick back to dramas every night already.
