    I have seen three promo vids and they look boring. I kinda find Ada Choi being paired up with an old dude kinda disgusting. It's 80+ episodes too, is the storyline really that good for that length? What's up with LInda Chung in so many dramas recently?? I am getting tired of her cuz she CAN'T act well.

    Anyway, what do ya'll think? I might just watch the first few episode and see what happen ...

    Just finished watching the first two episodes, I also worry that the story might not be good enough to last through 80 episodes. But there will be episodes that are gonna drag. But this cast is very strong esp with Maggie,Gigi and Ada being the core. Also this is going to be Gigi's last series. So bring on the drama!

    What do you mean this is Gigi's last series? I thought she needed the money after her bro was in a car accident and no longer able to practice as a physician. Unless ya'll know something that I don't or is she getting marry to some wealthy guy so she has no worry about the "mula" anymore. Fill me in here! Well, not that I like her much anyway but just rather curious about it.

    I cannot get over the fact that ADA CHOI has that ugly teeth, (sticking out). Otherwise, she'd be a great example of what makeup can do to an ugly girl.

    GIGI LAI is blind or something, her eyes seems to be unable to focus.

    Maggie is purely ugly and a disgusting thing to watch on screen. I like ada choi. good to see her back.

    I do have good expectations from the A-List cast...but 80 eps....that's two HOGs!

    keep your hopes up cuz the supposedly A-list cast can become a F-list cast if the storyline sucks. bear in mind that this series is 80+, not 8 eps so it better be something outrageous good for me or anyone to sit through.

    read the chinese news section it has recently reported that she will be retiring from the entertainment industry to take care his brother.

    shinobi, i don't read chinese ... lol .. anyway, i thought she needed the money too to pay the bills and all. weird, don't you think?

    bbes Incredible

    not rele cos she will earn enough money from this to then go and take care of her brother. anyway i do think that 82 episodes are excessive. dunno i guess we will have to wait and see whether it turns out to be any good but the cast are certainly impressive. then again the cast for HOG2 were impressive and that was only 40 episodes and that was just the right length i thought. so if this is 82 it better be good. might try the first episode later.

    ^Even 40 eps were a bit too long

    80 episodes is quite long. Looking at the plot right now, i can see how TVB can drag it on for 80 episodes cuz i'm sure the plot evolve into something very complex. Might not continue watching.

    I'm hoping this series would be good and will last even if it's 80 episodes long. The storyline is alirhgt.

    Well its a long series therefore it starts slow and goes up with tension. But so far I don't like the series because I don't like the roles in the series. The mom is very annoying and the girls are very annoying too. Don't like Bowie Lam character.
