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?
Longest shift today. 15 hours! Then I came home and belated realized the TVB annual awards show was this past Monday. Surprised that it did not generate the usual heated competition like the other years among the contenders. Then I scrolled down the winners list and the reason couldn’t be any clearer. There was no competition at all. The major winners of the night were expected, with only a few great surprises. I think TVB had a decent year in 2014. At least I think so because I’ve watched more series this year as compared to the past few years. But the dismal ratings…so low…
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.
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 in the limelight for his participation in The Voice of the Stars. It’s an entertaining series so far with Kristal anchoring my interest in her vibrant, saucy performance.
