TVB 2017 Top Drama Countdown

Happy New Year everyone! To start off the new year, we will be reviewing the TVB dramas that aired in 2017. With each passing year, we've noticed that a lot more dramas are in the "Didn't watch/dropped" category. As many of you know, the quality of dramas has declined in the past years. We really didn't see a point in continuing with some of the dramas this year because of the disappointing plot or cast. We will be giving a short description on why each drama was ranked or dropped. Also, if you are interested in seeing where we dropped the drama, please see our drama list here.
Didn't Watch/Dropped:
Rogue Emperor (流氓皇帝) - We didn't watch this because it was filmed years ago and just got released as a remake of the one with Adam Cheng. There was no point in doing a remake of a classic and the cast didn't really appeal to us. From what we heard, it wasn't a bad decision to skip this one altogether.
Recipes to Live By (味想天開) - Jay saw most of this drama,…

2017 TVB Theme/Sub-theme/Ending-theme Song Top Ten Favourites

Image
Hello!

In 2015, we posted a TVB theme song review which had our thoughts for all the main theme songs of the dramas that were aired that year. This year, to change things up a bit, we decided to include all themes, sub-themes and ending themes, but since there would be too many to give comments on each, we decided to list our 10 favourite songs from the 2017 TVB dramas. We did not do a ranking for them since we had a difficult time choosing our favourite one, but here are the 10 songs in no particular order:

胡鴻鈞 Hubert Wu - 到此一遊 (劇集 "降魔的" The Exorcist's Meter 主題曲): We've always been a fan of Hubert and thought he was one of the better singers in Voice Entertainment.Compared to last year, Hubert didn't get too many theme songs to sing. However, his theme song and sub-theme for The Exorcist's Meter were huge hits, paired with his popular character in the drama as 石敢當. He did a very good job for the live performance of this song in the JSG Awards. This song is ca…

LAST POST OF 2017! CeeJay's Pick of the Month (December) - JW 王灝兒 - I Just Wanna Stay With You

Image
Happy New Year to all! We've had a great year in 2017, and we hope we will have more time to produce some more posts in 2018. We know we have been a bit slow on the posts, so we hope to get some more drama reviews out the coming new year.
Moving onto the Pick of the Month we have selected, today we are introducing JW's (王灝兒) "I Just Wanna Stay With You". We started liking some of JW's songs since her single "矛盾一生". We are happy to see that she has her own concert which will take place on January 6th 2018 at the Hong Kong Coliseum. This song is the theme song for her Never Too Early 2018 concert.
We like the new EDM style music that she's put out, since it's definitely not seen often in Hong Kong music, but it's very fitting to try out something new for the New Year, and it works well overall. The song is pretty catchy and reminiscent of some of the mainstream pop music especially with the English chorus, and it will be interesting to see if…

Awards - TVB Star Awards Malaysia 2017 Winners Thoughts and Opinions

Image
Hello everyone,
This post is for the TVB Star Awards Malaysia 2017. We are going to be providing our thoughts and opinions on this awards show!  


My Favourite TVB Variety Programme: The Sisterhood Travelling Gang
Thoughts: We didn't watch this show so we don't have much to say but their friend group is getting a lot of publicity these days. Can't believe TVB even made a show out of it.
My Favourite TVB Enrichment Programme: All Things Girl Malaysia Edition
Thoughts: Again, we didn't watch this show so we have no thoughts on it. In general, we would say the info/variety shows have lowered in its quality so we haven't felt compelled to see any of them and if we had the free time, we would rather watch other shows. 
My Favourite TVB Host In Variety Programme: Maria Cordero (Maria’s Auspicious Recipes)
Thoughts: In the past, we have seen Maria Cadero host cooking shows (Cheap Clean Eats series) and she's been pretty entertaining with Luk Ho-Ming. But we haven't seen…

CeeJay's Pick of the Month (November) - Kayee Tam - New Releases 小堡壘, 花森林

Image
Heyo!

It's another end of the month (crazy, right?), and today, we are introducing two new releases from Voice Ent. singer, Kayee Tam (譚嘉儀). 
In context of Kayee's recent role in the drama, The Exorcist Meter, these two songs seem to reflect the childish innocence of her character as a doll. 
The first song is "小堡壘", which is a story about how this girl found her small "fortress" in which she feels like a princess after meeting someone, and how she is forced to let go of this place, since her lover has already left, and it no longer represents the same thing. The MV takes place at an amusement park with Kayee reliving the memories of her and a man who is no longer with her. It's a sad song that is enhanced with Kayee's soft vocals and a decent chorus.


曲: 譚嘉儀 / 譚耀倫 詞: 譚嘉儀 / 譚耀倫 編: 譚耀倫 / Soya Lee 監: 譚嘉儀 / 譚耀倫 / Soya Lee
離別了怎可拉近 迴盪夢裡亦算最真 不懂得捉你心 懂一個人熱吻 只需你的音韻
留在我的小堡壘 尋覓護蔭是我所須 不需得到允許 分手也可再聚 然而我從沒半點的心虛
人若要走 留住當初心動不要太內疚 這是留住你的魔法 也是重遇你的方法
是我手 能捕捉這心動 長年被私有 看…
