    Dislike Raymond from before and now. He is irking.

    But like Grace very much. This drama is intriguing to me. Grace fits this role very well.

    I've always supported things with meaning. hahah.

    I like the underlying message in this drama. For people that actually know and realize what's going on in society, this movie has a lot of it, especially with equality.

    Finished this a while back. Typical TVB cliche ending. Although, The evil general who plays the dad in CHL did a really good job playing the evil role.

    This one falls way short as it progressed.

    Gets a C+ from me.

    Only 6 replies guess not many watched this.

    To be honest, it was a good drama. I can see why this rating is the highest so far, especially if the housewives are chasing this drama. Story about female inequalities which got the message across IMO. Thought it'll be a horror series from the start but it was nothing like it.
    • Raymond Wong - Nothing spectacular. Wasn't bad though.
    • Grace - Surprisingly suits her role quite well.
    • Louisa - Nice to see her back but I thought she'd be given a bigger role
    • Rebecca - She starting to grow on me but idk if it's true.. seems like she's always playing these roles (chic characters). Would love to see her act something different.
    • Katy & Zoie - Nice turnaround from My Ages Apart roles. For Katy, two consecutive roles that doesn't back up her title of Best Supporting Role. Perhaps it could be filmed before that award is given though.
    • Cilla - I can see why she left TVB.. she basically KLF in this
    • Bandits - Kind of expected this part to be in, but it entered and left the story in like 2 episodes which was kinda quick.
    • Jeannie & Jessica - Would love to see more of them lol
    • Willie Wai - He started to grow on me too. Too bad I skipped his drama where he won his award a few years ago.
    • Tsui Wing did a good job on his role
    • Ending was.. TVB.
