    ooooooooo....this looks gooood! (calls to the gambler in my blood) LOL - just kidding
    aw...wong jing as producer, should expect to see some of his usual flair then.

    Kenneth looks ying with his shades, not sure about Ka-lok's mop of hair though.

    I like the cast too ~! Lots of 'old faces'

    Its so hard chasing dramas these days and its all these fresh young faces (have no idea who they are)

    I didn't realize Wong Jing does TVB series...is this also filmed with the 4K look to it? The way the trailer had the colors it look like had that movie feel to it.

    I‘m glad you spotted it, but I haven‘t started this yet. I keep thinking about Abson and that scene where that TVB kelefe with the crooked jaw licks the mcdonalds ice cream cone LOL. Can‘t find myself watching this in HD, see all the fake hair lines and color ins as well as bad skin and plaque teeth gaps. Can tell who smokes and bleeches.

    Any actual pics of him from this drama?

    The cast is a meh to me, but I may get to it later.

    Uwahhhh....I can't stand the acting of Louisa Mak. Her mouth always seem to be sucking on something... and her eyes expression! Ughh...and so many screentime of her in the latest episodes

    just caught up the last few episodes, I agree, she's too new to have that many screentime, probably just TVB promoting her.

    But overall, I like the overall storyline telling so far, this is what I wanted Burning Hands to be, and the other gambling/swindling drama (can't quite remember the name but kinda came back to back with Burning Hands)

    Hmm I thought this was going to be good. With keneath ma and che si man.

    But It turns out no that great.
    I find there is no plot. Don't even know who is main character no more.

    Aiiii

    ikr. I think the problem is too many "main-worthy" people in it, so there's no focus on a particular, making them "main". But I mean, it's not horrible, just average imo, "didn't meet the expectation given the caliber of cast", I think is more accurate.

    I'm still kinda watching this, I think it's still relatively watchable for me. I like revenge dramas and to me it has always been the battle between the To family vs Patrick Tse's school of swindlers. Though I think a major turnoff for this series is them stretching the relationship portion for far too long.

    The 3 pairs, Nat and Monica, and newcomer Louise Mak, which is fine, but so far we're 20 episodes in or so, and more than half of it was wasted on relationships and less gambling.

    Louise isn't entirely terrible but definitely shouldn't be filming the amount of scenes that she did

    And I really REALLY hated the fact how they killed off Monica like that, the script writers did her dirty. How can you make her so good at fighting and then kill her off so easily? I think that's their way (a poor way at that) to linking it back to the story
