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.

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.

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…

Hello, more stuff coming up!

Hello! First of all, we would like to apologize for the long break in blogging. We have been very busy and not many interesting things have been happening in the asian entertainment world. With TVB's anniversary season, we figured we would come back and post some new things. As for the new canto-pop, not many songs have caught our eye either.

In the following months, we hope to have more frequent posts and this will include a full year review of HK entertainment including TVB dramas, music, etc. We also look forward to doing more drama reviews with the TVB anniversary dramas.
