Da Tang Shuang Long Chuan Zhi Chang Sheng Jue (H-DVD) (End) (China Version)April 22, 2015 Lousy!!
A lousy series. Poor writing, directing, acting. Chan is old and withered, ugly as heck. Stupid dialogs.
Mr. Director make your movies. You are out of your league in doing a TV series.
Daughter Back (H-DVD) (End) (China Version)April 11, 2015 Excellent!!
A wonderful series. Very well scripted, directed, acted. Excellent acting by all main players. Full of intrigues, suspese. A very flowing and entertaining 50-chapter series.
Xiu Xiu's Men (DVD) (End) (China Version)January 22, 2015 Suspenseful.
A very well done series. Well scripted, directed and acted. Truly suspenseful.
Not a big cast production, but a very well crafted product. A rare find among many trashy TV series in the market.
My Father Is Ban Deng (H-DVD) (End) (China Version)December 8, 2014 Messy
Disappointed that a big-name director can deliver such an inferior product. Bad script indeed.
The acting is not good. The fault rests with the director for bad acting. The story has too many loopholes.
The acting of the female lead is not up tp par. The frequent presence of the little girl is very irritating.
Not a good series!!!
Da Mi Shi (H-DVD) (End) (China Version)December 3, 2014 Great Series
Interesting story. Good acting. However, the male lead really misses the boat by having a heart for the female lead who is not all that smart and lovable; I hope that in the end he would take the lady with the kid. The ending is not explicit, but kind of indicating that.
Chuan Yue Feng Huo Xian (H-DVD) (End) (China Version)October 10, 2014 Messy & Boring
38 chapters of boring stuff. Poor script and acting. The male and female leads are very disappointing in this poor production of implausible and infantile scenarios, full of loopholes. The directing is amateurish.The main characters are not smart, hard for me to root for them. Really very frustrating for me to continue watching them. Too many unnecessary kiddy scenes, noisy and childish.
The War Of A Man (DVD) (End) (China Version)September 10, 2014 Trashy $ Boring!
This is a lousy series. Lousy in all respects: script, directing, acting, costumes/makeup, backgroung music...The production team is full of mindless amateurs. Lots of needless flashbacks, stupid dialogs, loopholes galore. Most of the perfomers do not know how to act. I have never seen the male lead in a good series yet. The females are really dumb looking, many with low-class and nauseating costumes.
A 40ish chapters of ripoff!!
Da Zhang Men (H-DVD) (End) (China Version)September 9, 2014 Very Good!
Didn't expect much at the start. But, it turned out to be a very well done series. Interesting plot and subplots. Very well acted by all. Very good script, directing and, again, acting.
One of the best TV series from China that I have seen.
Battle of Changsha (DVD) (End) (China Version)September 1, 2014 Great Disappointment.
The title is very misleading. It is not a war series, it's a family series. This family has no lovable characters.
The young female lead is ugly and does not know how to act. Her brother is a disgusting character.
Too bad, this otherwise good director has given us a lousy product. Poor script has lots to do with it.
There are very little redeeming features about this series!
Suo Ding Mei Jun Te Shi (H-DVD) (End) (China Version)August 17, 2014 Quite Well Done
A well produced series. No big-name stars,but all the performers play their parts very credibly. All the main female cast act well and very pleasant to look at. The storylines are interesting. Very good script and dialogs. A much better series than many series laden with big-name stars.
Jie Zhen Guo Chuan Qi (H-DVD) (End) (China Version)August 12, 2014 Boring!!
Unfortunately, another boring and poorly produced series. Full of loop holes. Uninteresting. Lately, I have been luckless in finding a decent series of the war genre from China. Sub-standard script writers are the most glaring culprits. Really sad state of affairs.
Warriors Of The City (H-DVD) (End) (China Version)August 10, 2014 Further Evaluation. Even Worse!!
Upon further analyses, this series does not deserve even a "2". There are simply too many loop holes, too many stupid characters and moments, too many unnecessary flashbacks. The producer, director, script writers are all brain-dead.
Too bad, many good actors have acted in this trash. 40 long chapters are a total ripoff for the paying customers.
Really, one of the very worst series I have had the misfortune of watching!!!
Warriors Of The City (H-DVD) (End) (China Version)August 10, 2014 Extremely Disappointing!
What a great disappointment! With all the veteran stars billed, I expected to view a decent show. Not so, the female cast is horrible, the script is messy, the acting is ok but the "Japanese" are poorly portrayed.
The storylines are dragging, no real tension. Much of the dialogs are totally mundane and boring.
Really a 40 chapters of nothingness!
King Of Legend (H-DVD) (End) (China Version)August 5, 2014 Sluggish
Interesting premise. But, poor script, sluggish directing, unintersting dialogs has made this series a dud.
Best acting is by Kenneth Tseng. The woman neighbor is a disgusting character and actress.
The male lead and director is affected.
My Magic Wife (DVD) (End) (China Version)August 2, 2014 Excellent!!
An excellent series. One of the very best. Great script, interesting storylines, great directing and acting.
To me, the best showing by the leading man. The leading lady is excellent too.
Very rare to see such a well-crafted production.
The Sinistar Love Of Mother And Son (H-DVD) (End) (China Version)July 8, 2014 Quite Interesting
Uneven but quite interesting series. On the positive side: good acting, intriguing story, sustaining interest all through. Negative: character of female lead is weak, naive and frustrating: too much dwelling on the boy who often causes inopportune and frustrating moments.
Divination Cases (DVD) (End) (China Version)June 27, 2014 Interesting Premise, Poorly Done
Interesting premise. However, this is not a well done series. Poor script, shoddy performance, except the male lead who is the redeeming character of the show. The female cast is not professional and many of them are not pleasing looking. The fighting scenes are fakey. Storylines are muddy and confusing.
Really a trashy series.
Glory Land (H-DVD) (End) (China Version)June 23, 2014 Messy&Boring
Bad script! Poor casting! Messy plots! 36 chapters of nonsense!
The cast: disgusting female lead, the stuttering bandit(stupid series always seem to have stuttering characters),the maniac-looking household manager. The male lead overacts.
A very stupid series.
Protect The Country's General (H-DVD) (End) (China Version)June 18, 2014 Very Loose!
A horrible script, full of irrelevant subplots and dialogs. Many disgusting characters and stupid dialogs. The main character is weakly portrayed. No drama, no tension, no desire to wait for the next happening. Some over-acting and much under-acting.
What a waste of the main plot.
Jie Wen Ying Xiong He Chu (H-DVD) (End) (China Version)June 17, 2014 Uneven and Boring
A quite subpar script. Quite a few long-winded dialog scenes. Acting is not good, including that of Tang's(he is not into his part). The beginning few chapters are ok. The latter chapters are dull. I didn't bother finishing the show.(stopped at chapter 23).
Forget this one!!
