    List them as you find them:

    At end of ep 05, as the doctor opens the dead patient's shirt to perform the electrocardiogram, the "dead" man's right thumb moves... -^_^

    Not a 'real' blooper per se, but I'm a little perturbed by the usual neatness of all these TVB medical events. Anyone who has ever been at the bedside of a real 'code blue' cardiac arrest or seen a genuine rapid response knows that they are not only confusing, high stress, but frightfully messy too. There's paper trash from the sterile products wrappings strewn all over the floor, along with multiple IV lines in generally both arms and sometimes the legs too. There's almost always blood somewhere with discarded gauze littering the bed; and if the patient is successfully recovered, a multitude of intravenous infusions are the rule rather than the exception. But, in the neat and tidy TVB television scenarios, even the patient's gowns looked like they were starched and pressed, and there's never more than just one IV bag, LOL...

    well... i can understand why the blood and gore is left out o_O

    another "blooper". when kenneth ma and tavia yeung, early in the series, mentioned what kind of cheese her father liked, they mentioned "gouda" cheese. they said it was goat cheese and that her father won't like it because of the taste/smell. me, living in the netherlands, was pleasantly surprised that gouda cheese is goat cheese, because as far as i know, dutch cheese generally is made of cow milk... so i looked it up just to be sure and behold... TVB is bluffing again, gouda cheese is made from cow milk.

    also in yesterday's episode (13 or 14?) they said that andy's parents were in the netherlands, that his mom is dutch... i was like, wtf, that andy dude doesn't even look like half chinese or anything near. somehow TVB always tends to tell X and Y is from or had been in the netherlands and that it is cool somehow, this part i never understood. wtf is so cool about this place? i was born and raised here and i can't see what's so freaking special about this place :p

    Ah yes, you're right about that cheese in episode 05; several issues in fact. Tavia says "be sure not to buy Feta Cheese as my dad's hates the goat smell." She then states that he likes Brie. Kenneth then says his bit about having bought Gouda for his Sifu before and that he had loved it. This mistakenly implies that Gouda is a goat cheese; it is not. Like you stated, it's made from cow's milk. Then later, when the Sifu (Tavia's dad) is about to choose between the two separate cheese choices before him, the plates on the table however, actually contains Feta and Blue Cheese; there is no Brie to be seen. Blue cheese ironically is usually made from a blend of cow and sheep or goat's milk, and is marketed with a distinctive foil wrapping and has a telltale marbling that isn't seen in any other type of cheese product (the one seen in the TVB episode shown below).

    Later, in his study, as the Sifu, a noted Neurosurgeon, is imparting wisdom to his neurosurgeon protoge, the shot of the two sitting together on the couch reveals a Urology textbook (on the desk) in the foreground.

    As for Holland (despite it only being a regional reference, but it is pars pro toto, what most Americans call the Netherlands), I only had the pleasure of briefly visiting that wonderful part of Europe once back in the late 1970's when I was on military exercise; sure wish I could have stayed longer and saw more of the place. But you're also right in that character Andy doesn't appear mixed at all.

    Well, cheese is actually considered some very serious shit. For the ahem... uninitiated, the cheese industry is an multi-billion dollar world wide market, with upscale shops that can rival even the wine or spirits market. There are specialty shops and gourmet restaurants that insist on daily international delivery of specialty cheese products for their customers. In short, it is nothing to sneeze at.

    Agreed ;)

    don't know! maybe tvb is trying to do something different (other then using UK/USA/Canada)...i guess, being different also doesn't make TVB plot feels ok. -_-"

    ep. 20 Benjamin was observing mandy (tavia's sister) when she was performing a task on the child. at the time he was wearing a flamboyant Pink shirt. but back in the pantry when talking to her about the incident, hes in a lighter pink/red check patterned maybe?
    and before that when he was "teaching" her a lesson about love and what it is and how its expressed (in the pantry) it was the previous day. hence they filmed the pantry scene twice and he didnt change. haha

    About the cheese I notice that it wasn't "Gouda Cheese". Gouda cheese is yellow and isn't a soft cheese. It made by cowmilk and it's called Gouda cheese,because the cheese came from the place Gouda in The Netherlands and about the Urology book? That's kinda strange because Sifu (played by Wilson Tsui) is a neurosurgeon and urology is totally a diifirent specialism and the actor in episode 5 is not really dead, but he's just not good to hold his breath and his body still.

    Er... Is there an echo in here? At any rate...

    [​IMG]

    End of ep 22, notice that the pier they're on is large and wide, and at the end of the scene, it's suddenly skinny and narrow? The guy's first wearing a yellow shirt, which magically becomes khaki, LOL...
