Mainland China TV Series Worth Watching

Okay, here’s the 3rd list as promised. (Although I sure take my precious time, lol.)

Ancient:

Journey to the West I & II (1986 & 1999) – This is what I call classic. Though Season 2 had some variations but still retained a sense of cleverness from within.

Li Wei’s Resignation – Surprisingly good. I didn’t realize it was that good either. I meant okay, it got random at times too, but it didn’t fall short of quality. The mystery and constant humor kept it going. Not to mention the witty battle between Li Wei and the king.

The Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils 2013 – Yeah, I couldn’t help putting this in after finishing it. Seriously, it was a surprise for me – as mentioned in the review. But I just had to make an exception because how they did it, which made sense to me more.

The Story of a Woodcutter and his Fox Wife – So unexpected and surprisingly good. I didn’t realize I would become so addicted to it from the start. It was a lovable folk tale and a mix of humor here and there. There were frustrating moments but it wasn’t as unbearable as it seemed. Qiao Zhen Yu and Song Jia Ling were so cute and lovable.

Water Margin 1998 – I haven’t watched the new version yet so can’t comment, but this was pretty good. So awesome with the cast and the plot unfolding. They managed to keep most of the stories intact. Though sometimes you felt there were ‘mis-cast’ here or there regarding ages, but because they were sticking around until later so it wasn’t too bad.

Pre-Modern:

Detective Tang Lang – It was surprisingly good. Usually, trailers are misleading since it only show exciting parts, but this one was consistent throughout. The suspense and witty humor were what kept the series going. The cast was also likeable, at least to me. IF you like detective and action dramas, this might be it.

Modern:

A Chance of Sunshine – Major skipping around but the ending result was good. Not to mention the Lu Yi and Alyssa chemistry was really addicting to watch so it was worth the wait in a way.

Sound of Colors – Soapy and it has its faults with draggy moments and bloopers but it was good overall. And if you don’t mind sad endings.

*NOTE*: This post will be updated from time to time. Therefore, it will be included in the ‘Helpful + Fun Posts’ section to make it easier to locate – IF anyone’s interested in following. Also, keep in mind that I back-watch from time to time, some might NOT be on the list yet. Others, call it difference of opinions – IF I didn’t put it on there.
