(TVB) Come Home Love: The sitcom continues, with its added episodes, slated to end at 700 right now, but who knows, there might be more. And as much as I enjoy it, enough is enough. I, like other fans, have also been patiently watching just for John Ma and Alex.
(ATV) Light of a Million Hope: I stumbled upon this around March, and grew to love it, although it was ten years old. But it was reairing on ATV, so I got to watch it. There were A LOT of characters, but there were also historical elements in it, so it was nice watching how Hong Kong grew and prospered. And as the title suggests, as long as there is light, there is hope.
(TVB) Missing You: There was actually no plot to this, just like a case per a few episodes, about helping long-lost family members reunite.
(TVB) Friendly Fire: I don’t quite remember what was the storyline of this series…
(TVB) Inbound Troubles: This series was hilarious! Wong Cho Lam’s Cantonese is the essence of the series.
(TVB) Season of Love: The first three stories were alright, but the last one was quite confusing. Four mini-series with five episodes each, and either the male or female character’s name relates to the four seasons.
(TVB) A Great Way to Care II: A continuation with the first one, although I wished the original cast participated instead of adding new people. I missed the trio (Ram Tsang, Raymond Wong, and Alex Fong).
(TVB) Slow Boat Home: Just another lighthearted comedy set in Cheung Chau, so it seemed very summery.
(TVB) A Change of Heart: A more suspenseful drama, of a heart transplant changing Michael Miu’s life, but really, I watched it for the storyline of Bosco Wong and Nikki Chow.
(TVB) Awfully Lawful: This was an OK series, with some funny elements, four middle-aged male lawyers and how they deal with life in different views.
(TVB) Triumph in the Skies II: Ten years since the first installment, this became more focused on the relationship between the people within the series, but nevertheless, as you might have noticed, I’ve found my liking for Sam and Holiday.
(TVB) Brother’s Keeper: I would have to say that the series started out pretty well, with historic elements between Macau and Hong Kong over the span of forty years. I don’t know how to explain it, but the last few episodes got a bit draggy and I didn’t like how it was an open ending, despite us having watched 30 episodes of it.
(TVB) Will Power: A legal drama that did not start off well, then got better around episode 15 or so, and from episode 25 onwards, it was obviously just dragging. This should have ended at 20 or 25 episodes.
(TVB) The Hippocratic Crush II: The series started out quite well, but because there were too many side stories, the main characters became a part of the side stories. I definitely did not get enough of Ben and Mei Suet for sure!
(TVB) Bounty Lady: I’ve boarded on another ship: Guang Nam and Jennifer. The first ten episodes were about how Guang Nam helped single ladies find their other half. But, sparks between Dayo and Kate flew in the second half of the series. If Laura hadn’t came back, I would have been more satisfied.
(TVB) Return of the Silver Tongue: I would have to say I am still unsure what exactly the plot of the story is, even though it has aired for two weeks already. I guess it’s ‘lawyers’ of the ancient times?
(TVB) Coffee Cat Mama: I do have to say that Vincent Wong plays his best: roles where he is dorky and nerdy. Most of the characters in here contribute to the laughs of this series.
(Thai) Roy Lae Sanae Luang: Let’s put it this way. I completely fell in love with Weir and Mai after this, although the storyline was sometimes inconsistent due to the editing of the episodes. It started out as a revenge, but before you know it, its goes wrong, because Weir is confused and charmed by Mai. It was a roller coaster ride from watching the three episodes that came out to waiting during the weekdays for the new episodes to come out.
(Thai) Maya See Mook: So many sweet scenes between Vee and Green AF5! The series was really funny as well. The subtitles have completely came out, so if I have a chance, I’ll watch it from beginning to end.
(Thai) Majurat See Nampeung: Ken and Namtarn make an OK couple!
(Thai) Nak Soo Maha Gaan: Had to skim for Weir, and the subtitles came out way after, so I never got a chance to watch the whole drama, from beginning to end.
Should Have Dropped:
(TVB) The Days of Days: This was another ‘no-plot’ series, made just because of Chinese New Year. I should have dropped it.
(TVB) Bullet Brain: This series was a complete failure in my terms. I did not understand the plot. Everything in the story seemed irrelevant and out of place. Another abstract series that failed. I regret not dropping this. I’m still questioning myself, what exactly is this series supposed to be about?
(TVB) Karma Rider: Benjamin Yuen was at the beginning of the first episode… But, after the second episode, I was confused, so I dropped it after two or three episodes.
(TVB) Beauty at War: During the first week of its broadcast, I had high expectations in it because the first one had such good ratings and feedback. But, turns out I had no idea what was going on, so I dropped it within the first week.
(TVB) Always and Ever: The first era, the ancient era was not bad. Then the pre-modern era was getting nowhere, so I dropped it halfway through the pre-modern era.
(TVB) Sniper Standoff: There was no point of me skimming through the entire series that had so much action, so after the second episode, I decided dropping it was the best way to go.
What did you guys watched, dropped, or skimmed this year? Wishing you all a very happy and healthy 2014!
