非凡夢想 邁向45周年

TVB 45th Anniversary
Woot!! The Light Switching Ceremony celebrates the beginning of TVB’s Anniversary month leading up to the Awards Ceremony 🙂 The event occured about 2 weeks ago in Hong Kong which usually focuses on the Anniversary Series. I didn’t think this year’s show particularly stood out- nevertheless, it was an exciting event especially for TVB Fans XD Here are a couple of thoughts from the show:

  • Firstly…I thought this year is TVB’s 44th Anniversary (since 2010 was 43rd)- Did they skip a year because 44 was a bad luck number or have I gotten something wrong?
  • The show begun with Leo Ku singing the themesong of 2010’s No Regrets. Dramatic song which I liked and reminded me of the previous year’s anniversary series but felt it was kinda looking backwards rather than ahead? Just a thought.
  • I noticed Wayne looking really enthusiastic in the back, singing along to No Regrets Themesong XD
  • Usually the positioning of the artists represent their status in TVB. This year, the artists standing in the front row consist of: Wayne Lai & Maggie Cheung from Forensic Heroes 3, TVB’s “Biological’ son Raymond Lam, Curse of the Royal Haren’s Myolie Wu, Bosco Wong, Fala Chen, Ron Ng and Kate Tsui
  • The other side consisting of the 3 “Fuk Luk Sau”  from Super Snoops (Johnson, Louis and Wong Cho Lam), Steven Ma, Linda Chung, Kenneth Ma and Selena Li
  • I thought it was ‘funny’ to see Steven Ma there given all the recent news regarding him leaving TVB, his dissatisfaction and all. Perhaps this was a way for TVB to show his respect for Steven and hoping he’d stay?
  • When I see the cast from the front row, no one there other than Wayne gives me the confidence of deserving to win Best Actor/Actress award. Maybe it’s too soon to say given Curse of the Royal Haren hasn’t airred yet; but I’m starting to feel that the leading actresses and actors aren’t as strong this year.
  • I’ve never been that impressed with the contestants/winners from The Voice so as with previous years, I didn’t find their singing performance that spectacular..
  • TVB’s 45th Anniversary Series include: Super Snoops 荃加福祿壽探案, Forensic Heroes 3 法證先鋒3,  Curse of the Royal Haren 萬凰之王 and new Sitcom about marriages. As with previous years I’ve skipped the parts where they interview the cast in hope to avoid spoilers xD
  • I thought the dance performance by “Curse of the Royal Haren” was a bit random since they used the music from”Can’t Buy Me Love”.
  • The posing thing forForensic Heroes 3 seemed a bit of a waste of time with no real purpose…but it was nice to see Wayne and Ron sing the themesong 🙂
  • The wonder how the anniversary series will roll out this year. So far I’ve seen half of “Super Snoops” which I quite enjoy watching actually! I’m growing more and more fond of the 3- the comedy is quite cute and funny and the 1960s thing is growing on me again haha I enjoy seeing the three a lot more compared to previous years.
  • I’ve just watched the first 5 episodes of Forenic Heroes 3 and am quite enjoying that too. Maggie and Wayne are so cool together! XD Wayne’s Pro Sir is soo proooo!! XD
  • Looking forward to the Gala Celebrations and Awards Presentation Ceremony 🙂

    Like I said, the Lighting Anniversary is probably the least interesting out of the 4 (Lighting Ceremony, Awards Show, Anniversary Gala, Sales Presentation) but it’s still fun coz it marks the start of Anniversary season! 🙂

    I look at the artistes in the front row too to see who’s “big” in TVB’s eyes this yr. Not surprised to see anyone there except maybe Linda Chung who hasn’t been THAT impressive but TVB always did like her. And I agree that Steven Ma was prolly put there by TVB in hopes of getting him to stay! The only thing that may make him stay (and this itself is a long shot) is if they give him Best Actor. Well, it’s not impossible considering there isn’t any obvious winner this year yet.

    Most of the performances were rather pointless but I did enjoy listening to Leo Ku sing the NR theme song, it rly was an awesome song. And I think they used the NR and CBML themes because there wasn’t any iconic themes/shows this yr :/ Further adds to my point of how TV King is fair game this year. I’m not watching FH3 so I’m not sure how good Wayne is doing in tht show..

    LOL I didn’t even realise that they skipped “44th”. But you’re right, it’s prolly a bad luck thing..

    • KTVB says:

      I guess Linda did get some spotlight from her role as Miss Koo (I disliked the series though)

      I agree…last year’s winner was too obvious; although I was slightly nervous that Moses would snatch the award from Wayne XD I tihnk I would be majorly shocked if Steven Ma won best actor..i’m not saying he didn’t deserve it; but it’s not sometihng TVB seem to be promoting. That- and the series ratings didn’t go so well.

      I like Wayne’s image here in FH3- very professional 🙂

    yeah they tend to skip the 4. they did that a decade ago with 34th as well. this year it’s called “Heading towards 45th anniversary”, (note characters before the 45 sign) and next year will be simply “45 anniversary”

    • KTVB says:

      Oh wow, thanks for sharing that!

      Didn’t notice the “heading towards 45th” anniversary bit- I interpreted that as entering the 45th anniversary month XD
