    the storyline is pretty good, reminds me of the one that just ended, the one with Ruco and Rosina. With that said, I am not feeling Fred as lead and Jacqueline as a business woman, they both don't fit their roles in my opinion

    Gallen and Ali both are doing well so far

    Not that pleasant to watch so far....the starting was quite good but storyline is pretty much predictable....And Fred's character has some charms but not convincing...

    Reminds me a lot like Hidden and the Gambling one earlier, where there‘s a group of bandits conning people.

    Typical TVB plot of thr son aka Fred coming back for the Dad aka Gallen. TVB plots are too easy.

    Ali and her kid scenes are irritating. Not sure why, but her trying to play these vulnerable workaholic single mom doesnt convince ANYONE. Too used to her being a bad person.

    I'm like this drama better than Burning Hands, I still think the two storyline are pretty similar in a sense. However, this one has somewhat of a better storyline. While I like this drama I still think Fred and Jacqueline's character could have been easily replaced by someone else who looks the part, for example Jacq's role I would love to see someone like Elaine Yiu try (just throwing a name out there). Fred I don't know who's a good candidate on top of my head, I like to say Ruco but I am just thinking how his and Gallen's age are closer than Fred and Gallen.

    With that being said, I am quite enjoying Fred's crew especially Jonathan Cheung, been liking him since House of Spirits, he's one I like TVB to start developing. Roxanne also isn't bad, I think the 4 teammates under Fred are also doing very well.

    Like most TVB shows, it often starts off pretty enticing, but then some how takes a nose dive w/ illogical plots, unreasonable plots, and just 'backward' filling story lines. Typical TVB style. But this has 'mission impossible' or 'the hidden' undertones to it. A bit far-fetched at times, but it is what it is.

    usually skip the intro, because they are dead give aways, but can tell the father and son having the same feelies for the same women. LOLZ
