    I’ve finally caught up on the series and watched all the episodes!

    I started watching it after “When Easterly Showers falls on the Sunny West“, and it really remind me of the series. The music, Nancy’s servant, the betrayals, everything for the name of their family, forcing marriages..or maybe this is all existence in that period of time ^^;

    I really enjoyed watching Silver Chambers of Sorrow 😀 There’s lots of suspense in it that makes me want to watch more of it. So much bad things happen to characters in the series, back stabbing and false accusations, complicated relationships and character-changes that creeps me out. I kept wondering if the series would have a happy ending and I’m glad it sorta does 🙂
    The parts that didn’t really interest me were watching Shirley, Jack and Charmaine’s love triangle. I couldn’t really care less for these three characters and I still found Shirley’s exaggeration somewhat annoying to watch. Other than that she’s pretty cute as the servant.
    I really like how the story revolves around the woman and the central theme about the pains, struggles, hardship and sorrows that woman face in that time period. I really feel sorry for them! All of them have distinct personalities (even the servants) which is interesting to watch too.
    The cast did a great job and I’m happy with Christine, Nancy Wu and Nancy Sit’s nominations for last years TVB awards. The series deserves in top 3, but unfortunately it didn’t make it. I’m also disappointed Paul didn’t get a nomination.

  • i was very happy to read your thoughts..hahah and agree very much with everything you i was thinking of the same thing when i watched fact i think theres like this main outfit thats in gold..that both the ah jies wear in the series..LOL…

    Just finished watching Silver Chambers, and I loved it! Every episode was intense..exciting and intriguing. I really felt sorry for Christine’s character at the start and was disappointed she turned so evil.. I was torn between hating her or understanding her motives and her reasons. There were times that I hated her so much, but then couldn’t help but have empathy for her when she was forced to kill Feifei (Nancy). The whole story is depressing and as the episode move further along, it becomes more brutal, more inhumane and ultimately overwhelming.

    I think Christine, Paul and Nancy Sit did an outstanding job.

    The opening theme is sooo lovely and soft..matches the whole mood of the show. A must watch!
