Usually, I divide it up by region but since I haven’t updated regarding this as frequently, I’ll try it at one go this time around.
A Pillow Case of Mystery II (TVB) – They’re finally airing this! It has been like ages. I was wondering what was happening to it OR if they warehoused it. (Still doesn’t really affect me since they would probably release it overseas BUT still…) New team (if you watch the previous one, you would know what I mean). A Bobby and Jessica reunion. And a Jessica and Leila reunion. And…well, if you’re watching a TVB drama, it’s hard not to see same groups of people over and over again. But this is one of the ancient ones I’m looking forward to.
Fat Mong Kwan Ying (ATV) – Okay, don’t know when they’re going to release this. BUT I want to watch so badly. There are so many people that I can’t wait to watch in here.
Gun Grey Metal (TVB) – They changed it from Interpol? Seriously? It was getting repetitive with the ‘Interpol’ line but it can’t be avoided because of the theme, but did they have to change it to be that lame? I was expecting Felix and Michael to be chasing some other cowboys down in their distinguished cowboy images with Jessica and Nancy cheering on the sidelines (of course can’t forgot those lovely gowns they wore back then in the wild west days in those Western movies). Aside from that, a Felix and Michael reunion. Something to look forward to and crossing my fingers, hoping that I can trust Felix’s taste since he did return for this. (With Michael’s persistent persuasion–of course).
Heaven and Earth (TVB) – Somewhat similar cast to those WAB or DOP again BUT it’s all right. I can swallow this–maybe. And hope Maggie gets a role worth watching this time. I’m just curious since they’re supposedly doing a different theme. I could always drop it.
Little Miss Unreasonable (TVB) – Hey, I’m a sucker for a Roger series and would try it out, considering he hasn’t done an ancient one for a while? I remember liking Dong Xuan in Eight Heroes so that’s another thing to look forward to. It’s a comedy but with Roger, I don’t have to worry since I know he could do comedy and not be over at it. (Even if he’s over with it, you could still laugh ’cause it’s too funny watching him. At least to me.)
Only You (TVB) – Seriously, are they going to compensate for Kevin and Yoyo regarding to Last One Standing? Just wondering, like how they were compensating for Roger and Yoyo in The Threshold of a Personna (though that sort of failed too ’cause of the script). They had me at Johnson and Evergreen–though I could always drop it (of course). And is Natalie going to get another ‘loud-mouth’/rude/rash role? If that’s the case, it’s just a shame. I mean watching someone portraying those types of character too much is just kind of unbearable. She needs something else and hopes that she will get it since I rather she’s some supportive, boring girl than the siren going 24/7. (TVB tends to mess up on showing the innocent side and straight-forward attitude that you end up wanting to slap people more than feel that that person’s still innocent and should be sympathized with.)
Reunion (TVB) – Roger, Ron, Sunny, and Derek. Oh wow, can’t turn it down. Okay, Ron’s not as experienced or impressive as the rest of them, but he turned some projects down to work with Roger so have to support him for that. We’ll see what happens. And let’s see, was I the only one feeling a bit robbed (okay, maybe A LOT) with The Brink of Law? So I hope to see more of Ron and Kate in here. Words are flowing around that they will be the couple who will always be together–from start to end–let’s hope it’s true.
Seven Days Love Isolation (TVB) – Another Steven one and Sonija’s reunion with him. I never knew that they had some misunderstandings in the past but since they sorted it out now, it seems hopeful that they would make it work. If all fails, there are always Evergreen and Kwok Fung (though I wonder if they would get roles worth watching for). Hopefully the suspense will deliver.
The Mind Reading Detective (TVB) – I don’t know. I’m a sucker for those mystery theme. Might be worth checking out. If all fails, I could always sit and stare at Raymond Cho for the rest of time. No problem! (LOL) But I have a feeling this one is going to be a suspenseful one. NOT completely sure but hope it won’t disappoint.
Transferred Connection Temptation (TVB) – Okay, I’m a sucker for Steven Ma too. Not to mention I’m quite all right with Fala and Yoyo–though quite worried that Yoyo’s taking on the villain role (again). Hope she won’t overdo it (or try to shine like some people).
Twilight Investigation (TVB) – Might be a skip for me though I’m a fan of Wong Hei. And not to mention Johnson’s in there. YET I don’t know how much of it would stick to the ‘investigation’ part since they tend to go astray with overly suffocating romances and other dramatic moments.
When Lanes Merge (TVB) – I’m actually looking forward to it. Yes, it’s another typical cast and might be a let down, but some promotional pictures from Weibo convinced me. I can’t wait to see Sonija trying out a different role though. Yes, they always make a hype about how ‘different’ those roles are at times, BUT for once I want to see a role of Sonija that’s more down to earth – and possibly less tense of a personality than some of her previous? Even if some of the cast is making me have second thoughts but I got convinced like right around the time of reading ‘Raymond Cho’. Gotta support Ray, right? Besides, getting to see him pairing up with Elaine this time around. Might be something.
Women Hurt Most (TVB) – Is Maggie going to get a decent script this time? We’ll see. I could always drop since I swear the previous one was wasting her time.
Rookies’ Diary (FTV) – I have been ranting about it since the last post so of course I’m looking forward to it. It has been ages that I get to see Tang Feng and Xiao Xiao Yu in anything so have to grab at the chance. It looks quite promising and hope it doesn’t go down the corny lane. Yes, some jokes might be a tad in the ‘corny’ area but I hope the rest of the cast could pull it off with the clever element and all. Unlikely that it might be as successful but I could always wish since it doesn’t look like some idol drama.
*Note*: I’ll update on my to-watch list later on since some of the dramas aren’t confirmed as of airing dates yet.
