UPDATE/RANT

We just heard that TVB is going to do another drama with the same cast of My Dangerous Mafia Retirement Plan and we just need to say:

TVB, STOP MILKING SEQUELS, SPIN-OFFS, PREQUELS, ETC. OUT OF OLD DRAMAS FOR EVERYTHING. COME UP WITH SOME ORIGINAL IDEAS AND PAIR SOME NEW PEOPLE TOGETHER FOR YOUR DRAMAS. THAT WAS A DECENT, YET FORGETTABLE DRAMA THAT DOES NOT NEED TO BE RESURFACED AGAIN! WE ARE SO SICK OF THIS!!!!!!

Apologies, we just had to get this out because we are super annoyed with how TVB is acting and uncontrollably spitting out sequels.

  1. Just had to say: Thank you for this post! Completely agree you about all these dumb sequels/spin-offs/prequels for forgettable dramas. TVB can't even create a good sequel for great dramas, let alone one for bad dramas.

  3. Hello miriamfanz,

    Thank you for checking out this little post! We have exactly the same thoughts as you. Instead of trying to reuse pairings and characters, people would definitely be more interested in fresh pairings and new chemistry between actors. Besides, if the first drama's ratings were only mediocre to start off with, what makes TVB think that their sequels will be more successful?

  4. lol I completely agree.... kind of stalked your archive and after reading this post, I felt the need to speak out my thoughts. I don't think this only applies for forgettable dramas that aren't worth a chance for sequels. As a long time tvb fan, I still remember the Forensic Heroes series. The first and second series were both nice. I loved the old cast, but when they decided to make a third series, they completely changed the cast. The cases were pretty intruding and interesting, but if you decided to change the entire cast, why still call it Forensic Heroes?! Wayne Lai and Maggie Cheung (forgive me if I spelled their names wrong) are both great actors, but I just didn't find chemistry between the both of them as a couple.

    Did you hear about how TVB is making a Heart of Greed 3? (lmao with most of the younger cast gone --> only Bosco will be returning; the older cast will be back) They are also making Deep in the Realm of Conscience (indirect sequel to Beyond the Realm of Conscience)......... I hope they won't mess it up.
