Has anyone been watching “Three Kingdoms RPG 回到三國“? The finale was out last night and just wanted to see what your opinions were on the series. Three Kingdoms RPG was one of the series I had anticipated for 2012, mostly because Raymond Lam was in it as well as other casts which I quite enjoy watching (Tavia & Kenneth). The cast sounds great. The time period sounds interesting, although I never really knew the story/history. It looked like it could be quite enjoyable
I’ve only been watching snippets of it during dinner time while it aired so I have some form of opinion of it although it may no reflect the entire series. I love the theme song by Raymond Lam!! The theme video also makes the series seem quite serious. However, from what I’ve seen so far, nothing really appeals to me…most of the scenes I’ve seen which discusses about war didn’t engage me. I did not like Raymond Lam’s look, especially with the beard. I can’t get used to it ..isn’t 諸葛亮 supposed to be 30 in the series? His character comes off as quite old-looking (despite characters praising his intelligence at a young age). He also comes off as a bit “slow” rather than witty because of the way he talks and reacts..
In the series, Kenneth Ma plays a 30 year old while Tavia is a 23 year old maid..I’m just starting to think they can’t pull off the age well enough and I haven’t seen much chemistry between the two. Kenneth’s character was also quite annoying to watch (especially in the earlier episodes) although he is supposed to be the source of entertainment and our protagonist from the present time as we journey with him in the Three Kingdoms. Unless I’m convinced otherwise, I might skip this series in hope to save some precious time watching some better TVB productions (if there are any!). I might watch the finale to see if anything exciting happens. Any thoughts?
