Solid cast! What a salivating cast!! I’m so excited to watch this TVB drama on Sunday with a two-episode premiere. Dead Wrong (致命復活) reunites Roger Kwok and Joey Meng for the X times as a couple. Lol. The story is exciting featuring Roger Kwok and Vincent Wong as doctors being kidnapped and imprisoned in Vietnam. While one (Vincent) escapes, the other (Roger) is stuck in a dark cave for 10 years. In the years he was missing, Roger’s character lost everything, his assets and his wife (Joey). She finds a support system in their close friend (Kenny Wong) and has to deal with numerous traumatic events of her own. When Roger finally escapes the darkness, he vows to uncover the truth, only to discover more shocking secrets about his kidnap and his loved ones. Will this group of traumatised people resurrect or sink in the end?
So fast! Seeing Nancy Wu and Ruco Chan again reminded me I still need to continue where I left off with A Fist Within Four Walls. LOL. Now that it’s over, I can safely watch at my own pace. They are uniting again for a modern drama The Alliance (同盟) with details of the plot still tightly wrapped up but we do know it involves action scenes and Nancy will play Ruco’s bodyguard! That is funny. More so is the fact that half of Fist cast members are in this one as well. Not a surprise since reusing faces is TVB’s strategy nowadays. Lol.
The finale is tomorrow 8/28! I know you guys have feelings that need to be let out and since I can’t be there at the same time, here’s a little corner for ya’ll to rant and rave and cry…. I’m sure you guys have used up boxes of tissues already, knowing the producer’s penchant for killing off his characters!! *fingers crossed*
I LOVE THIS DRAMA! Need I repeat myself? First drama this year to make me squee and scream and kick by the end of each episode. Episode 3-5 must be watched in rapid succession of each other. It covers the whole arc of the first rebellion. I pretty much love everything about A Fist Within Four Walls. There are big, grand moments, but they never forget about the small character moments that poke your heart and make you bleed – for all the good reasons.
Do give the first 5 episodes a try. ❤__❤ I’m still not sure what I want to do with Fist. I want to recap it but there’s no time~ It’s ending in one week and I’m only at Ep. 5. Lol. Watching it slow to extend my enjoyment. Do! Not! Spoil!
Ohhh. I like what I’m seeing so far. While Chusen crawls at a snail’s place, TVB’s A Fist Within Four Walls is giving me the burst of adrenaline I need! What I love most is that we have several real martial artists in the house, plus the fact that the main leads and supporting characters all went through vigorous training to perform the required stunts. The result is some nice hand-to-hand action scenes! I miss those hic! hah! huh! sounds so much. Wuxia dramas from Mainland series are just not the same with heavy reliance on CGI and fancy shooting lights.
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 Hong Kong dramas air at rapid speed with five episodes a week, it’s hard for me to keep up with recaps so I decided on an alternative – this discussion post! So please join me as we guess and recover the last undercover agent (UC) and the big bad wolf in the police force. You can find this post under the discussion corner tab on the right hand corner of this website!
Please refrain from posting spoilers of the identities of the big wolf/last mole if you’ve read it beforehand in TVB magazines. At least wait until it is revealed in the episodes. Other than that, nothing is restricted!
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 got to flex their acting muscle. Verdict? Strong performances.
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 behavior are in sync to bring out the whole of Chun Chun. Is it weird that I find her cute in every scene? So it’s not surprising how I’m not the only one looking at her fondly.
