Oh TVB, is there any slight hope for your truly glorious days to return? I used to love you so much, SO MUCH. You made me younger days interesting (TVB was the only thing on VHS tapes we got). You made me edge on my seat with writing so gripping and riveting I can still remember scenes that blew the mind. You made me laugh like a hysterical loon with your gags. You had legit actors like Gallen Lo, Francis Ng, Nick Cheung, Sheren Tang etc. You had PDs like the one who did War and Beauty, one of the best best TVB series I’ve ever seen. I practically grew up with you.
But WTF happened to you?
I know the presentation clip isn’t good enough judgement of what the series would be like, half of them won’t be produced anyway, it’s mere tactic to attract potential investors. But heck if I was an investor, I wouldn’t even touch any of them yaiks. They either look too smart for their own good with stupid cheesy CGI to gloss our eyes a bit, or just shoddily put together crap!
The only decent-est out of the bunch that I might be interested to check out, 好心作怪, 巨轮 and 情逆3世缘? The rest you can just forget about it.
The list of series possibly coming out next year:
1.神枪追击 2.传爱事务所 3.仁心解码2 4.老表，你好耶！ 5.寒山潜龙 6.好心作怪
7.单恋双城 8.食为奴 9.On Call 36小时 II 10.巨轮 11.情逆3世缘 12.巾帼枭雄之谍血长天
They omitted 金枝慾孽 War and Beauty 2 and Triumph in the Skies 衝上雲霄II in the clip, which probably will be the only watchable 2 series to come out next year.
