My Date With A Vampire was the series I fell hard for vampires and its hunters. Lol! If you have watched ATV series, chances are you loved their Vampire franchise (both Date and Vampire Expert) as well because its one of their biggest runaway hits over TVB series. Its a classic romance with our heroine hailed from generations of ghostbusters and our hero who turned into a vampire after helping her ancestors. 60 years later, past mistakes meet present problems. The story is so intricately written and all the characters are connected in more than one way. Like Huan Zhu Ge Ge, part three doesn’t exist for me!
I have been looking forward to TVB series, The Unholy Alliance, for a while now and it’s finally aired! With the same production team (from Jazz Boon) and main cast lifted from last year’s hit series, A Fist Within Four Walls, The Unholy Alliance is considered its modern brother, led by veteran actress Nina Paw.
Deep in the Realm of Conscience (深宮計) is the second installment of Beyond the Realm of Conscience, released 8 years ago, led by Charmaine Sheh and Tavia Yeung. Yes, I did watch it, being an avid fan of the leads and all but the characters were written in one extreme or the other, making it not a very stimulating watch. The second part has cast leads in Steven Ma, Annie Liu, and Nancy Wu. It will be set during the Tang Dynasty, ruled by Emperor Xuanzong of Tang, same as Glory of the Tang Dynasty.
Thanks for everyone for participating last time! I think this post will just be my random spazzing of everything under the sun, so feel free to rave and rant about anything and everything, and who knows you might find that one person who shares the same opinion. =D
Don’t you like my post title? Hee! I have only watched a handful of tvb dramas this year so every time I tune into the anniversary awards, I’m surprised at the same faces every year. Lol. Oh Tvb, you need to groom new talents! You can’t compete with the same names every year with other productions!
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.
