[I missed episode 1 and 2..]
After watching episodes 3-10, what can I say about it? The series is so-so. The cast isn’t all that great, even though Bosco is there. So far I think the storyline is narrow-focused. I’m still not sure where this story is heading; what the story is based around (for example, Dicey Business- Casino, At Home with Love- Real Estate etc) and its already half-way through the series. Who is paying the price of greed? Sammul’s character is the greedy deceptive evil guy, but what price does he pay? Everyone around him does and suffers instead. The only other side one I can see is Kate’s step mother. I really did not like Shirley’s performance here..or her character. She was plain annoying and seems like she’s just doing random gentures rather than proper body language. I did not feel the same when watching Chilam Cheung’s performance in Return of Cockoo. She was just not likeable. The whole thing about her playing the violin and giving up entering the competiton because she realised her dream was to stay with Bosco was ridicious..I did not feel any sympathy for her and thought the whole thing with everyone on the streets clapping and following Shirley playing the violin was lame.. I also thought it was so silly how she became a teacher ..how can she teach if the students can’t even understand her? Shirley’s character seems to exaggerate a lot too. I preferred watching Kate’s storyline more. At first I was wondering how she can be so in love with Sammul’s charcter only being her financee, until we find out about the other girl and how he decieves people its no wonder she believes in him so much. Its also very stupid in that they found a photograph Sammul had taken with the other girl and he just simply denied it was him and they couldn’t arrest him, what the? ?? There’s no technology at that time to have photoshopped or mucked around with the photo, and other people found the pho. How can he get away with it just like that ?? Like, in other series, if he was actually innocent, he would probably have been arrested and it would be up to him to prove himself inncocent. Also, all those people who pointed to him saying he is the same guy became quiet after Sammul started telling them off… =__= What’s wrong with them?
The sister who told Bosco and Kate that Sammul did have Cancer is very suspicious as well.. could she be Sammul’s mother or someone trying to protect him? That reminds me; didn’t Sammul’s character say he had cancer? How come he doesn’t appear to be dying anymore?
Such frustration watching this..
After watching the whole series, I went back to watch episode1 to realise how nicely the episode was put together!! It was a very interesting episode!! A lesson learnt~ its important to watch the first episode to know what’s going on..XD
