I agree with you on that!! :)
So, who's holding a gun to your head to download any of it?

Frankly, I just love these period dramas; it gets to reinforce a bit of Chinese history by fleshing out the dynasties that people don't ever get a chance to see otherwise (artistic license not withstanding). The fact that TVB spent millions in creation of an artificial period city to shoot these offerings means that they certainly think that audiences will continue to be receptive to these things for years to come.

IMHO, that's a really good thing ;)

rather they divert some of those millions for better actor/actresses. i find some of the old supporting actors/actresses are better than the mains. tvb definitely lacking talents with everyone going to mainland.

TVB hasn't never being 100% historically accurate, still, this is a decent series so far, enjoying it just that bit more than lives.

I like the series so far. It's interesting. As usual Steven is great in ancient series and I think Kenneth is doing a good job as well as the villain. I don't agree with his methods but I do understand why he is so ambitious. I'm waiting for the final showdown.
