the history portion of it pissed me off!, there was no battle for the throne between brothers for KangXi emperor, that was only for Yong Zheng emperor (KangXi's son)

not much is known about Fok Quan (Kenneth) in actual history. Xiao Zhuang was an amazing empress/dowager going through 3 emperor eras

and the guy playing Oboi (O Bai) is not mean enough =(

In the introduction which said KangXi 25th year of something...during that time, KangXi was in war with Taiwan, not with his own brother

idk, it may have a good story but the history are so out of place

I'm just sick of TVB making queens and kings, and all those boring craps. TVB gotta make more mo-lam shits instead.

when referring to a royal grandmother, its not "Wong Ma Ma", its "Wong Jo Mo"

yeah the history part is just....and the fact they found Power Chan to be Kangxi just........sigh >.< and the grandma (Chin Ho Wai)....her voice...sigh. I watched a very awesome Chinese drama about Kangxi a long time ago and the actors in it are amazing. Now looking at TVB's, sigh, just bad.

and WTF is all the modern terms Steven Ma's been saying!? also all of a sudden he spoke in Mandarin! ("Zhao Zi Long") ....

yeh i cant take this series seriously, not to mention i already hate Stephen Ma...

and I hate how they portray Xiao Zhuang as a manipulative, evil empress like CiXi, i mean dude, she helped laid the foundations of the Qing Dynasty

^I think so. Sigh...

I just finished episode 1 and there is nothing that makes me want to watch more. The history portion of the story is a bit too fabricated.

Yah, I agree, TVB should start making the Wuxia series again.
