Angel in the Making 實習天使 TVB - Review

Angel in the Making 實習天使 - Review

This is our review of Angel in the Making. This time we are also featuring thoughts from our part-time contributor Ah Tao!

Basic Overview: (We're gonna skim through this part so we can get to our thoughts!)

Halley Kei's (Eliza Sam) dream is to become a nurse and in this drama, she plays a part of TUNS 6, a group of intern nurses going through an internship at Hang Yan Hospital. She is a caring and kind character that works under her "devil" mentor Ray Yeung (Tony Hung). Tony Hung is an enigmatic character that is still traumatized by his family's death in a car crash when he was six. He was the lone survivor and was taken up by Dom Cheung (Chung King Fai "King" Sir). Tony became a nurse under the care and love he received from the nurse Dom. Initially, TUNS 6 (consisting of Eliza Sam, Moon Lau, Jinny Ng, Momo Wu, Oil Chan, and Kevin Tong) hated Ray because he always yelled at them for doing things wrong. Adding to thi…

連詩雅 Shiga Lin - 舊街角

Image
Hi everyone!

This is a new update on Shiga Lin's new song that came out 5 days ago called 舊街角. We've started listening to more and more Shiga Lin's songs this past year and we are starting to really like her. At first we noticed her song 只要和你在一起 on the side of our YouTube account but it wasn't until Jay gave it a try that we discovered her songs. She usually comes out with singles every month or two months always bringing new surprises. As the year is ending we're finding this new song to be super fitting because it talks about reflecting on one's past life. There's no turning back, 時光總不留人 as the lyrics say. There's always going to be that street in your life which reminds you of a special someone or a special time in your life.

Watching the JSG awards this past weekend also made us wonder where the awards for Shiga went. This year she had some great songs especially 大了一歲 . But with the politics at TVB, she was snubbed of all awards and instead, Alfred…

2015 TVB Anniversary Awards Thoughts and Red Carpet

Image
Firstly, we would like to apologize for the late post on the TVB Anniversary Awards this year. We have been super busy with the holidays coming up!

We will first talk about the winners this year and our opinions about them. Then we will have a red carpet section to take a look at some of the outfits of the night.


Award Winners:  Best Series: Lord of Shanghai
Definitely the best drama of the year. It was amazing to watch and TVB hasn't had too good of
dramas in 2015, so this one was a huge contrast to that. All of the actors and actresses did a great job acting and didn't mess up the drama like how COD was messed up. It was so suspenseful and the characters were just so well written. The drama was so highly anticipated before it came out and thankfully, we were not disappointed! We hope to see more of these dramas from TVB but that seems a bit unlikely from the sales presentation we saw....



Best Actor: Anthony Wong (Lord of Shanghai)
He was no doubt the best actor this year and …

2015 TVB Theme Song Review!

Hey everyone! With the TVB season wrapping up this year, we decided to create a post on TVB's theme songs this year. Just a small note that we will not include sub themes in this post, there will be a post on that later! Hope you enjoy our little review/opinions on them.

TVB Theme songs:

鍾嘉欣 Linda Chung - 我不夠好 (劇集"東坡家事" With or Without You 主題曲) - ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING.... HORRIBLE! Spare your ears and do not listen to it!!! Yes.. it was that bad and as much as Linda had bad songs before, this is probably her WORST. She literally sounded like she was suffocating and could not catch up with the lyrics. She is bad at singing fast songs and keeps breathing heavily. It was like she didn't even want to be there to sing it and had no heart whatsoever. SO ANNYOYING TO LISTEN TO.

泳兒 Vincy Chan - 獨一無二 ( 劇集"無雙譜" Under the Veil 主題曲) - The song was soothing and very comfortable to listen to. Her voice is soft and not forceful to convey emotion through the song like some…

TVB 2015 Top Drama Countdown

Image
Hello! This is our TVB Drama countdown list of all the dramas we have seen this year and our thoughts on them!! As always, comments are encouraged to share your views on dramas as well!
As we didn't watch or finish some dramas, we decided to leave them out of the countdown since it would be unfair judgement if we never watched the whole thing.
The Ones we Didn't Watch (and why):

Every Step You Take - Nothing interesting and Moses Chan is such a bore with his dramas this year. We aren't too into dogs and stuff either so no.
My Spiritual Ex-Lover - NO THANK YOU.
The Empress of China - It was way too long and although it did look appealing, we didn't have time. There's also something weird about dubbing, maybe it's just us? But it's not original and the mouths don't match and it's just not real so you will find that we don't watched dubbed stuff.

Half-Watched or Not Finished Dramas:

Come Home Love - Saw a lot of it but missed some, way too many episodes …

Angel In-the-Making 實習天使 Theme Song TVB

Image
The theme song of "Angel In-the-Making" (an upcoming TVB drama) was released early on and is sung by Jinny Ng. The song is called "我們都受傷". We think that this song is okay but it from what we know of "Angel In-the Making" so far, we don't know how this will even tie in with the drama. It's sorta a thing on its own and not really that suitable as a theme song. The Voice Entertainment Group has been putting out some really poor quality MVs and songs lately and even this song isn't great. This MV is just basically the same as Hubert Wu's "明知故犯" that was posted around the same time. We understand how it is a collaborated MV, one from Hubert's point of view and one from Jinny's but it just doesn't cut it.  Voice Entertainment is trying to use one stone to kill several birds by filming one MV for many purposes.

No offense, but we think The Voice Entertainment Group's MVs have become really cheap. Most MVs are just singe…

Captain of Destiny 張保仔 TVB Review

Captain of Destiny 張保仔 Review



Basic Overview: Captain of Destiny is a historical fiction/sci-fi drama of TVB. It is a time travelling
series where Wong Tai Mui (Grace Chan) who lives in Hong Kong 2015, goes back to the Qing dynasty. Wong Tai Mui is a Hong Kong policewoman who got stationed at Cheung Chau. There, she encounters a criminal mastermind, Bowie (Ruco Chan) and during a motorboat chase, she gets sucked into a waterspout and travels back in time. There she meets a group of pirates including Cheung Po Tsai (Tony Hung), Cheng Yat (Lo Lok Lam), Shek Gui (Maggie Shiu), etc. The story basically unravels from there and talks about conflicts between the pirates and the Qing army and journey of Wong Tai Mui trying to go back to 2015. Along with that, there are other stories like in the palace about prince Man Ho/the 11th prince (Ruco Chan), Imperial Consort Yim (Elaine Yiu), Imperial Consort Shun (Susan Tse), the Jiaqing Emperor (Lau Kong), or in Macau with Chu Suk Kwan (Mandy Wong…

Awards - Starhub TVB Awards 2015 Thoughts!


My Favourite TVB Actress Liza Wang from Limelight Years

Wow! We both think that this is surprising but at the same time expected. At first, we thought that the people voting online would be cheering for their idols and not for Liza Jeh. But, Liza's acting is undoubtedly the best out of all the nominees. Although we didn't watch the whole drama, we managed to see more than half the episodes and it's really something special from TVB. We were originally planning to skip this drama but after some recommendation, we decided to give it a try. If you put aside the naïve Linda and her story with Alex Fong, it is a great drama. Liza puts in her real life experiences into acting this role and we have to say that she performed better in here than Master of Destiny and Divas in Distress. We are happy that she is the winner of this award.

My Favourite TVB Actor
Ruco Chan from Captain of Destiny

As for Ruco, again expected. Ruco has been working…

Come Home Love 2 愛·回家 Thoughts, Opinions, Review

Come Home Love 2 is the spin-off of the TVB sitcom Come Home Love with a new cast and story line. It stars Louis Cheung, Priscilla Wong, Katy Kung, Owen Cheung, Quinn Ho, James Ng, Evergreen Mak, Helen Ma, Li Fung, and some other actors.

The story focuses on the business and workers of See See Fitness, some on-goings of On Fai Dry Goods, the Lun Family, etc. However, viewers have complained that this drama was a bad continuation of Come Home Love and lacks the theme of "home". Some also feel that it should be called "愛瑜伽" (Love Yoga) instead. The story is uninteresting with Anson (Owen Cheung) and Billy (Quinn Ho) constantly bickering over Lei Lok Yee (Katy Kung). She serves no purpose and is even naive... having two boys just fight over her yet she has no feelings for them. She should just say that she doesn…
