After watching episode 1, what do you think?

The intro music was by Jin Ayo right, sounds like him.

The first 12min was good and was jokes to see that Kevin Cheng was indeed a genuine lawyer. His office is rather in a mess though, for a lawyer that is -sweat

PS: what is that guy's name (Kevin's assistant and the one from My Sister of Eternal Flowers?) cos he is starting to get good roles now -bigclap

Opening theme is idiotic; the booming rap syncopation may have been a bit more apropos for something along the lines of a race care series. IMHO it's rather a musical mismatch to pair it with a show about law, even if the series is based on an irreverent character like the one portrayed by Kevin Chengs's "LA Law."

On another note, I don't know if TVB has gotten new writers or directors, but their dramatic explosions have improved. The scene in which Linda Chung closes ep 27 of Yes Sir, Sorry Sir and the courtroom scene at the climax of ep 03 in this Ghetto Justice series were probably some of the most memorable moments I've ever witnessed from TVB.

Oh, and Mandy Wong 黃智雯 (who plays Abby Mui KamHeung) is subtle, but she's a hottie, much better looking than Myolie, IMHO.

It could be surgery, for quite a while now, she had way to much make up on than needed, seems lighter in this series though.

I'm actually quite disappointed with this series. I think this series focuses far too much on Kevin Cheng's character's unorthodox practice of law rather than addressing more "real" ethical dilemmas which lawyers typically go through.

This show focuses more heavily on "right's right" rather than "whats ethical" which is the opposite of what i've come to love about law dramas. Lawyers in this show readily "sell out" their clients in order to achieve "what's right" (as evident by myolie wu's character in episode 3 by calling a witness to the stand to be easily ripped apart by opposing council) which was upsetting and angering to see.

This series also had the opportunity to question or otherwise challenge the flawed justice system present in Hong Kong but instead opted to be another typical lowbrow, chinese television series content with silly puns and happily-ever-after story arcs.

Perhaps my expectation were set too high as i was hoping for a chinese television series more akin to "The Practice" which i feel to be a much more "real" and interesting drama.

I am pretty much enjoying the whole acting especially the guys Kevin Cheng, Sam Lee and the rest and also Sharon Chan. Never like Myolie much so can't say much lol

What I don't like is the crappy storylines and the cocked up general emotions and psychology. Like, when Joyce was in court for the 2nd time coz of the row her and her husband had and that her kids believed everything that was said to them and not just believe their mum like when they believed that she didn't steal the money at the earlier episodes.

It's a shame that Sharon had died, wanted to see a happy ending for her and Sam... So I will be thinking that the sequel won't be as good :(

Good series and unexpected ending. What I'm surprised about is that TVB already planned a sequel for this and I was like hmm that must mean the ending would be good but would be like a cliff hanger sorta thing

I think Sharon's appearance saved the series. I think she's gotten prettier and her expressions have improved a lot. nothing against myolie wu can't hold it up- myolie's self engaged and boring here. She has more work to do before pulling diva yea.
