Discussion Corner: Line Walker (2014, HKdrama)

Still enjoying this drama even if the tonal shifts are jarring at times. For a serious genre, with life and death at stakes, Line Walker befuddles me in its embrace of comedy and happy-go-lucky tunes from time to time, sometimes within seconds of a dramatic scene. I guess even moles need breaks too. Anyway, as …

Line Walker: Episode 1 – 5 “Great beginning!”

hee! I marathon-ed all five episodes last night until 2AM! Haven’t done so in a while, for a TVB series no less. The first episode was rather slow because our group of cops, spies, and gangsters didn’t meet yet but once they do, the chemistry is palpable, not the romantic kind either, but in the …

Coffee Cat Mama: Episode 5-8 “Shipping has settled.”

For two people who are still reading, this is probably my last recap for CCM, unless something awesome compels me to rave. It’s a solid show but I find the humor more funny and the scenes more meaningful if you experience it through watching instead of reading.

Return of the Silver Tongue: Episode 10-13 “Parenthood.”

Being a parent is probably the hardest task in one’s lifetime. While the majority chooses to unconditionally love their kids, drama parents aren’t so selfless. Romance for the leads take a backstage in these set of episodes to let sisterhood, brotherhood, and most importantly, motherhood take center stage. Which means our talented supporting cast members …

Coffee Cat Mama: Episode 1-4 “It gets better.”

These three are the highlights of this drama! It’s a lovely setup that they’re housemates because I can’t get enough of their grumbling bromance. If you have watched and dropped this series after episode 1, I highly suggest you give it a second chance because the speed picked up significantly in episode 3 and 4 …

Return of the Silver Tongue: Episode 5-9 “Romance in the air.”

Chun Chun is a hoot to watch. Such a witty and sharp female character that I could watch all day. Definitely a challenging role to play with Kristal’s recent confession about memorizing the scripts during her sleep because her lines come in paragraphs. Ha. Kristal is fabulous in this role, her every gesture, expression, and …

Return of the Silver Tongue: Episode 1-4 “Sassy heroine!”

How’s this to capture your interest? I wonder if this is all planned. After Kristal bagged home the Best Actress Award a week ago, her drama Return of the Silver Tongue immediately premiered. Not only is she the female lead, she also sings the theme song with adorable actor, Fred Cheng, who has been basked …

HKTV’s Vampire Drama: Still Have Time To Love You

I guess if you’re a vampire, that’s a romantic line to start the first date. So I went snooping around TVB forum and caught sight of this upcoming series, Still Have Time To Love You (還來得及再愛你) produced by TVB’s to-be rival network, HKTV. I was nodding my head until I read: Inspired by Twilight. LORDY. …

Triumph in the Skies 2: Episode 16 – 20 “Not meant to be.”

You see the blue sign? How fitting, isn’t it? This set of episodes are uneven in emotions. Most intense scenes take place in the first three episodes and the last two flake out, adding more irrelevant characters to a cast that is already too big. I do not care about Bee, Flowers, Apple, and Pink …
