[Love Exchange] 疑情別戀

A List of all the posts made on the series:

Final Thoughts/Overview of the series

Is this a must watch? Not really haha..I did enjoy watching the four leads though and I was curious to find out about Dick and Bonnie’s death. However, I had to wait A LONG TIME for the main storyline to happen!! Watching the Sales Presentation Clip, I think this series had a lot of potential. Unfortunately I was disappointed with this series because it didn’t meet the expectations built. It was definitely not a Romance/Thriller series as it promised to be. They pretty much changed the story completely and had too many filler episodes in between. The first episode was pretty exciting but after that, the main storyline starts to lose its attention as it starts to focus on Anita starting her life again, her working life, her family and Michael’s sister in-law etc Those were nothing new and I felt it was a waste of time. They were showing some character development and all but it wasn’t enough to keep me watching. I had to build up that ‘driving force’ myself lol. I also wanted to see more of Anita and Michael but they didn’t share that many interesting scenes together. I grew to like watching Power and Krystal as a couple together instead. (I don’t think they look compatible at all though =X Same goes with Tracy as well…)

The latter half of the series was when it started to get back on track about the case etc. The complicated relationships with the main couples were interesting and I like watching truths being uncovered.. However, it felt like bits and pieces were just getting thrown in your face, like suddenly this evidence appeared, or that man appear, and the evidence just comes out one after another. It feels very random and could have happened a long time ago instead of having us to wait through it all XD

Watching this series makes me wonder though..are affairs really that common?Is a relationship really that insecure?

All in all, it’s not a must watch series but still a good series to pass time with. I’ve actually told a few friends of mine the story of Love Exchange- complicated relationship etc , what happens in the latter half (i.e omitting off all the fillers, and family background stuff) and my friends love the ideas haha. I guess that’s why I’ve decided to put up the Love Exchange Episode Summaries skipping those boring parts off, so you can all feel the essence of the story.

It’s better than a lot of other TVB Series out there, trust me haha!

*Note: A lot of the earlier episodes are focuses on Anita (Zita)’s family – brother in-law, mother in-law etc, Michael’s sister in-law, Ai Wai (the cop friend) which aren’t particularly appealing to me.. so I left them off the summaries XD My apologies for those who are interested to find out more about their family matters. INSTEAD, my posts will focus more on Anita(Zita), Michael (Lap Tin), Power (Anson) and Krystal (Jackie)’s characters ..and of course! And clues which are related to Eddie(Dick) and Angela (Bonnie)’s death

    wow. this took you a long time to post 😀
    well anyways. i thought the first 2 epsiodes were pretty interesting.. then it got boring when it was only about Anita’s family.

    No offense for those of you who like the series, but I think it was the most disappointing series of the year — especially because I was anticipating a gripping, intense, and romantic plot. 🙁

    To Liling: I guess that’s what happens when they put have the sales presentation clip, build up expectations, and then fails to deliver (worse, having pretty much the whole plot changed!)
