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.
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!
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.
Not much going on in dramaland but music land? Everyone and their grandmas decided to drop a single this past week. Lol. I keep on pushing this batch back and removing bullet points to make individual posts. It’s been…two weeks now? But yes, lots of news.
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*
HAPPY FRIDAY!!! I’m so glad it’s friday, I feel like a walking machine these past two weeks. Good thing my contract work for the summer will be over in two weeks so I can resume my normal work hours instead of these long shifts back to back to back…
Adulthood is hard. Enjoy your kiddiehood, my little friends. >.<”
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!
