    I know she's popular, but she can't even bite her words clearly.. Sickening and annoying.. Old hag trying to act youthful.

    LMFAO.. You guys are cracking me up.

    "LOW MUN>> DEEM GUY". shit sometimes the words they say, sound like something else...


    Yeah both the OLD GUY + OLD LADY acting like shes 20 years old is sickening. It doesn't seem like a mandarin thing. It could be, but shit.. Its like a LOONG DUO shit.. LOL..

    I hate the lady though.. UGGGH..

    I think they purposely put in people that can't really speak Cantonese as a way of engendering hostility towards certain characters. That way, it become much easier to love their opponent, who then becomes your hero. Classic selling of television; establish friction, then give the audience a target. In this instance, the plays her role perfectly. I wonder if the faux Canto accent is faked; dose anyone know?

    her language sucks. but more so she tries to act young when she is not.

    in BSS 1, diana vs esther kwan was a decent matchup..

    if esther vs teresa mo. that'd rock too.

    not a 70 year old vs 40 year od.

    actually... teresa is 50 and elaine is 53 so the age gap isnt that large. plus elaine's character is suppose to be 46 whereas teresa's is like mid to late 30's.. so get your facts right :p So its actually teresa who is trying to play a character that is alot younger than her real age. Although she can just about get away with it if there arent too many closeups lol


    but yes i agree... i hate elaine's accent and dont like her character much.. but its supposed to be disliked.. after all she is susan... "bad god" - naughty/evil person

    lol i hate that lady too. Even CBC's can speak better canto than that! The older man is actually bearable, because he has a somewhat more of an agreeable personality.
