What do you lot think about the ending? Was it rushed, okay or perfect?

I think the ending was 'ma ma day' because Michael didn't really need to give the baby to Sammul to Joe when Joe would have already know they are still alive. Indeed it's 1 life for another but still. Good thing though is that they have another baby at the end.

ending was pretty good actually. Most stuff went according to history, some didn't, but overall I liked it

What went right:

Fong Hao Yu (JianWen Emperor's teacher) did piss off Emperor YongLe, and was executed along with 10 agnates (9 generations + his disciples), only 10 agnates execution in history of China ,total of 800+ people were executed
YongLe changes Ma Sam Bo's name to Zheng He > Zheng He then goes on for his 7 voyages, Largest Sea Expedition in World History
Li King Long did indeed open the city gates for Zhu Di, so conquering the region was that easy

What went wrong:
Yee Wah (Joe Ma's wife in the series), did give birth to 5 children (oldest son goes on to become HongXi Emperor, YongLe's successor), and he was supposedly in his teens during the rebellion against JianWen, I think this is one big mistake in the series though

so there overall its a 3 to 1 for the ending, but i rate this series a 7/10, mostly because a lot of the female characters pissed me off. Like the ninja girl, Sire Ma and her horrible acting, action scenes, etc

It was ok ending, nothing to much to moan about and nothing surprising.
Nothing too much to moan about? LOL, did you see the size of that baby that the princess supposedly gave birth to? I bet she was a moaning and a groaning to get that little heffer out of her.

That's true, the baby would risk getting ill or something.

for some reason, i thought this series was pretty good. i mean what more can you expect from tvb rite? i like tvb ancient dramas from this era/dynasty although i don't know jack shit about the 'real' history.

i personally don't like Joe Ma very much but i have to say he did a pretty good job in this series, the character suits him well. I like Sammul Chan and Michael Tse's characters too.

The baby saved Joel and Michael lives, because when the baby was in JOE's arms. He memorized that Elanne and Joel had been in his arms, too because of the baby he decided to pardon Joel and Michael.

if it makes you feel any better, in actual history Fong Hau Yu, is supposed to be killed by waist execution =), imagine if they did that kind of scene, not to mention all the complaints it will get afterwards lol

i admit the Gordon/Joe Ma fight was horrible, like straight out of a cartoon. But then again, as i said few post above, 70-80% of the ending went according to history and that is what most important for me
