[Musings] Mysteries Of Love [2010][TVB]-END

Post a comment Print or Download as PDF


The following are my occasional musings after watching TVB's sort of super hit, Mysteries Of Love or as I call it, Galileo Ciplak. Interesting I am quite going to differ from my original musings when I first saw the preview and 1st episode.

This will be a long one so do click the Read More link.The top is the latest post.




23.03.2011 - A very short summary
Best Performance
The writer, for pretending to take inspiration from Galileo when in fact some parts downright copy, some parts you wished they copied properly

Worst Performance
Bernice. If that is acting, then I am Li Ka Shing.

Best Scene
The unintentionally funny ones, like the whole bunch of police doing some kung fu dance with the flying mini helicopter, which was the funniest ever! And best scene because I was entertained, which was rare when I was watching this

Worst Scene
That last scene of Kingsley asking Sai Lik Mui to marry him

Thank You TVB scene
That last scene, when that scene was just cut short and switched to the ending song. I literally said THANK YOU TVB! 

Most Boring Scene
Everytime Bernice is on, I was wondering "What's the point?"

Scariest Scene
When Bernice's character Nicole and Kenneth's Gordon suddenly became so lovey dovey as opposed to independent

Most Overexposed Character
Probably Gordon since he had the most kissing/bed/stripping scenes, or Bernice who earlier has the stripping scene or Tavia with her excessive crying but no doubt, when it comes to the actor himself, gotta be Raymond and his very very obvious celebration for all Asian women that some Asian men do have very very... ermm.. well you see for yourself. Now we all know why Raymond is a hit with the girls, apart from handsome, talented, rich, comes from rich family, etc etc etc.

Most Ridiculous Family
King's family. Such caricatures.

Best Family
Sai Lik Mui's family, and she doesn't deserve them at all

Most Missed Scene
Did Kings and Sai Lik Mui kiss? Did they, at all?!

Probable Theory
I always thought Kings is gay. He gives me that impression. And this is not gay bashing time but the lack of intimacy with Sai Lik Mui is alarming.

Most Confusing Scene
Why is Sai Lik Mui so crazy about a log of wood who insults her and her family? Why?

Most Eye Opening Scene
There must be some competition going on between Ray's wardrobe designer and Kenneth's wardrobe designer because each wardrobe gets tighter and tighter as the series went on and on. Kenneth with his tiny jackets and even tighter jeans where he gave new meaning to skinny jeans. I think  I could see so much of everything. But Ray, his shirt gets tighter and tighter, his pants already right and his jacket worse! And he wasn't even that fat at the end but the tightness of the wardrobe gives an illusion he is chubby. And of course both actors' hairstyle... what the hell just happened??

Worst Everything Ever
Apart from the OTT cases (which thankfully wasn't preachy), the names, whether the way it was pronounced or the way it is. Nicole became Nik-Kol. Uncle George became Ung-kol Jorghhhhhhh. There's Kingsley Kings (urghhhh), Sai Lik Mui who doesn't have a proper name. The normal one is Gordon but pronounced as Goh-dong.

Most Meaningless Part
The end song and the super hyper strange music video where Ray can't even knock down some block of ice. And Kings' wasted talent in helping to solve the cases where no physicist have any right to be involved because surely the stupid inept police could solve those cases themselves?

The Never Changing Look
Sai Lik Mui and her perpetually the same hairstyle, or rather the way she combs it. The same. Boring.

The WHAT THE HELL Look
Apart from the leads' hair, that has to be King's aunt's fashion sense. It is like so tasteless for someone professing to have good taste. Just spells CHEAP and I think it was intentional.

Most Copied Look
Kings who loves to stroke his chin when he was thinking, or the way he placed his finger/hand on his chin, that is so Yukawa Sensei!

Best Everything Ever
That is it NOT anything like Galileo.

Final Verdict
Crap in the beginning, crappier in the middle, crappiest in the end. Generally crappy all over.


22.03.2011 - Episode 24
Last episode and thank god for that! First of, I can't understand how Gordon being promoted to (is it) Chief Inspector is in anyway between his relationship with Nik-kol but he did and in the end with the best boss in the world,the Madam came back and gave his old job back minus the promotion.

Then we have Kingsley's emotional sorry to Sai Lik Mui who in the end showed us all the scar on her wrist (she tried to cut her wrist). Of course we have Kings kneeling and all and there I was thinking "Sai Lik Mui, stop 'diu kou lei mai', we all know you want him". Well anyway in the end separated for a few months, we see Kings getting the "Universe's best physicist,E-VER" award and in his speech said some heartfelt things like sorry that he was wrong about his perceptions that everything is logical and what nonsense, that he lost his girl, that he wishes he could build a  time machine and all and guess what? Sai Lik Mui saw it on TV. Wow, never knew such an award show got people watching!

Anyway she was walking back with her mom when no less than 5 cars (including 2 bosses) and we have sorta like Stephen Hawkins sort of brilliant minds begging her to accept Kings, we have the madam, and everybody and anybody who is not a villain in that scene and in the end Kings asking her to marry him and she said "Stop. I saw you on TV, I heard what you said, I have already forgiven you" and we have them hugging and Ray (I mean Kings) looking rather confused. I mean Ray, what's wrong with you?!

And thank god that TVB decided to cut short that ending scene and just went with the credits because they themselves knew what a dud of an ending and yes, 2nd funniest in the series.

The best ending? Skip 2 years and Kings knew Sai Lik Mui MARRIED AND PREGNANT and Kings in his speech recognises he didn''t understand love when he had it and he knew love too late when he lost the love of his life and he wishes he could build a time machine to turn back the clock but what's gone, is gone and we see Sai Lik Mui smile sadly and switches off the TV and happily go to have lunch with her husband as she has the answer to the mysteries of love; you need not be with the most loved to feel really loved.

THAT TO ME IS THE BEST ENDING and will have an answer to the mysteries of love; that not all love leads to happy ending.

Crappy show. Am very happy it is over. I beg you to watch Galileo to know why this TVB series sucks.

Where the writers tried to outsmart themselves

First of, I am dead bored with Nik-koll and Gordon's story. Yes her name is Nicole but you know HK accent, it became Nik-Koll. I don't care about them but I like Nicole's reaction when she found out her boyfriend cheated on her, yet again. She threw rocks at his windows and she basically slapped him. You go girl!!! Sai Lik Mui can learn from that because she is still depressed and changed dept to the very friendly and super free PR dept. Anyway this is one of the funniest episode ever. I laughed so hard. Why? Read on!


Rich man's son got some sex tapes and got blackmailed by an unknown super hacker who could hack from laptop A to laptop B using some super computer virus. I find that utterly ridiculous. More believable if rich man's son took the laptop for repairs and the stuff got downloaded. Anyway, such a high tech explanation and guess how the super hacker asked for his blackmail money? Yes, leave it on top of some dumpster in some industrial area!! Huh?! That's when the writers tried to outsmart themselves when they wrote how the police of 3 depts worth of personnels saw a small toy helicopter hovering above them and they were like doing this silly dance of avoiding, looking, panic all over and BOOM! The helicopter was carrying and bomb and how the bag got taken will be next episode's story. Stupid isn't it? Not the helicopter but the fact that such a super hacker would have asked for the money to be banked into an account and he will transfer that amount in a way that the police can't track his digital tracks so to speak! That's not the funniest. The funniest was this idea; imagine you're a crook and you asked for money to be exchanged at some industrial area which is usually quite empty when suddenly, one day, you see a couple jogging back and forth, a construction camp besides the road, plenty of people reading newspaper by the side of the road and each looks very tense, gripping their ear piece that no decent Ipod owners will be seen dead with those when we have Bluetooth and more cars than you can count in a year! That was so funny! And of course Kings will save the day by tracing the money. For a moment though I was laughing hard when I said to my family Kings will want to study those laptops and those sex taps and he will say "I will need to look at them, closely and repeated!!" and that was before I cared much about Ray and his real life bedroom scandal so to speak!


The more interesting part is finally a girl is introduced to Kings that his parents and aunt were very eager about; pretty, tall, young, RICH (as in RICHER) and she is ... what's her name? Leanne Li is it? That Wong Cho Lam's girl who is perpetually playing the aggressive go getter girl who never gets the guy? Anyway she looks so promising, going all out when Kings said something that made me want to kick him; he said "I wish I can build a time machine ..." and the girl said "So you can go back and relive your romance with that ex girlfriend of yours?" (yes he told her) and he said "No, so that I can undo what I did, not start the relationship so I won't hurt her that much". Kings, you jerk! Well I was happy, 3rd party, some competition, maybe a nice one who will in the end tell Kings family that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover and show them all what classiness mean when next scene we see her super bitchy to her assistant and vows to make life hell for Sai Lik Mui who will meet with her as they together with the police are involved in some charity event. It's like the richer I am, the snobbier I must be. How cliche; how wrong but that makes for interesting TV because I love to see how Kings NOT come to Sai Lik Mui's rescue. Also the prospect of Kings family knowing how Sai Lik Mui and family felt when being looked down, because this super rich bitchy girl didn't like King's family as she is richer than them but tolerated them for the sake of Kings.


Bollywood drama plus K drama in epic proportion. Funny and disturbing at the same time.

Where the police was so incompetent 

I did not talk about one episode where Kings broke up with Sai Lik Mui quoting about "I thought 1 plus 1 is 2 but it is not that simple. It was never that simple. We are people from 2 different worlds ..." and went on about the same thing his parents said except with Kings, it was a whisper and therefore sounds gentler and not an insult. For me that was the ultimate insult when implied he said he loves her but their status is not suitable for one another. If I was Sai Lik Mui, I would cry like she did and then slap him hard several times and tells him to get lost. She did cry, very very hard as she said "I fell for you before you fell for me! I never thought we had a chance, you showed me we could and now you're telling me we are incompatible. You never told me our relationship was based on a calculation!!" and my god, Tavia is terrible at crying. Anyway after she told him to get lost (no slap), Sai Lik Mui further embarrasses herself by pleading "Please come back! Please! Please come back, don't leave me!!" but Kings was not there anymore so he didn't hear. I know it was supposed to show how DEVASTATED she was by the breakup as she subsequently cried and cried and cried and even said  "I will change my career for him! If his family doesn't like me staying in Yau Ma Tei, I can move. If his parents doesn't like associating with my family, I can leave them too!!" and at that I felt like Sai Lik Mui is a total and utter complete failure. Later on she wanted to quit her job and her father scolded her and rightly so. I don't understand what's so great about Kings who was more wax than human, who did not defend her dignity but instead trampled on it. His reasonings were insulting and the idea they will get back together in the end is like one slap to human dignity. And then Sai Lik Mui's behaviour was more than embarrassing; it was an insult to more human dignity, especially when she said she could walk out of her parents. Her parents and family who stood by her, who accompanied her, her father who hugged her and cried with her and it pained him to see her so much in pain, she could throw that all away for that walking human calculator, Kings who should abandon mental arithmetics and invest in an abacus; perhaps he can count better because Kings, if you say 1 plus 1 is 3, then 3 it shall be! What a dumb writing.

Then today's episode about a psycho husband stalking poor wife accused of having multiple personality. First I had no idea how Kings could narrow down the search and locate her. Surely a hacker would be better in hacking that program that psycho husband use to stalk her? No, must be Kings, doing something look like high school maths formulation. Yukawa sensei can do so much better! Anyway, what amazed me was how stupid the police were. They knew the husband installed cameras in the house, and they just listened to his explanation and did nothing. When the husband pulled put a syringe and injected her with something as she was going mental right in front of our Gordon, Gordon looked surprise and nothing else. The police justified that action as "Well he is the psychiatrist, he is the expert". How many times the woman came close to dying I am not sure, but that scene would not do justice to the HK police's competence.

Maybe in the past I have judged this series on the strength of 1 episode and my dislike that it copied Galileo. But after watching it, I can tell you, it copies Galileo's surface and it became superficial. Deep down this series has characters I do not care about at all. In the end, the story suck. Acting suffers from sucky characters. Kings is supposed to be the prince like guy, but a guy like Kings makes a very bad boyfriend and even worse husband. Gordon's only talking point is his very very tight jeans. Sai Lik Mui is an insults to all jilted women and policewomen. Now I have a legitimate reason to trash this trash. Where is the garbage dump? I want to throw this crap into it and crush it!

The part where Kingsley's family looked down on Sai Lik Mui's family part 1000

Oh I get it! You're high class, they're low class, you drink red win, they drink beer, you eat chocolates, they eat red beans, you sprout English and Shakespeare in Chinese, they sprout Confucius and mahjong rules. You have names like Uncle George, Kingsley and what nots and they have names that identifies their ethnicity. You speak English supposedly with English accent which sounds more like someone who lived your entire life in Kowloon whilst they don't speak English (but somehow Sai Lik Mui communicates with Kingsley in English when using SMS). What an offensive family this Kingsley have but those are caricatures, what I was most disgusted is how useless our hero and heroine is.

Kingsley for one, to show he has like perfect manners, he did not repudiate his family or old Uncle George but he also failed to act like a gallant hero he should be. Not that he should tell his family to shut up but he should have said "I know what I should do" and just bloody walk out of the car because they're more worried at losing him than he losing them! He didn't defend her. He didn't even show his displeasure. He just sat there, meekly and let them not only degrade them or insult them, but basically said some very ugly things about their family and even Sai Lik Mui. He basically did nothing. I know he is a well educated well mannered polite man but showing him having a bit of temper at the right time would show he has character. Right now, he is so bland and so boring and now so weak.

Sai Lik Mui fared no better. She is nice, she is eager for Kingsley but way too eager that she didn't show temper. She lost a bit of patience but basically didn't do much when not only her every member of family was insulted, her ancestors and her beloved profession was insulted. But she did walked away, probably less out of anger and more out of shame for whatever reason. At home, when her father implied she was a golddigger, rightfully she became angry. But the next scene as she eagerly took Kingsley's phone, each assuring one another that what happened was no big deal, that they can persevere, and then line got cut off and again eagerly anticipating, wanting his call, I feel she showed no personality or even strength of character. I know Kingsley is to everyone perfect (to me he is so flawed), and I know he shouldn't be blamed for what happened, but if Sai Lik Mui had any self respect for herself and pride for her family, she would have not taken her call, and tell him perhaps they should cool off a bit. Because however she likes to think they will be fine, in future, her family will be doing all the tolerating, his family all the abuse and surely as the filial daughter that she is, she wouldn't selfishly want to put herself above her family and let them face such abuse? Shouldn't there be one scene to have her doubt her relationship with Kingsley and decides that in the end the love for kingsley is not worth the mental torture for her family.

I find Kingsley incredibly weak, Sai Lik Mui incredibly selfish. What a family this Kingsley have. All the education in the world, and they have such rotten character.

As for our detective's love story with his friend with benefits, I am not bothered. Bernice Liu is such an inadequate actress and Kenneth Ma can pout all he wants, I just don't buy him as some super detective. More like a model pretending to be one.

Not sure which episode

I finally sat down to watch 2 episodes proper after missing a few or rather skipping minutes for some episodes. The case tonight is rather sad; an abused gay man killing his violent lover in self defence, and his younger inteligent brother covering up his crime for him. I am just glad it didn't end with some preachy "Murder is murder, you must pay for your sins" sort of nonsense and show the police showing actual emphathy. But the investigation part is probably the dumbest writing ever. They need Kings to tell them sometimes what you see is not what it really is. Just shows the police has zero investigation technique when they needed a physicist to throw their theory on the time of death. No wonder Kings is overworked. I like the relationship between Tavia and Ray, probably the most boring couple ever but rather cute. However his parents are such caricature. Come on, his mother ain't some rich socialite, she is a rich headmistress. Tavia is a nice girl, I can see why Kings fell for her but his parents... and Tavia's family also rather caricature. The men's pants are still as tight, poor Ray squeezed into that tight vest. He dresses like he is ready to go to some ball at any minute. I still hate his hair, even Kenneth's hair. Everytime I see Ray's lab, I thought this series should crossover with Burning Flame. I can so see Wong Hei walking in and declare that lab as fire hazardous place with all those hanging pipes, large cylinders of whatever and wires everywhere. Still hate the songs, really hate the title, ignore the investigations which shows HK police are so inept and the whole idea of Kings = super amazing catch and Tavia = ordinary girl. I hate the so called social divide preachiness but then we know it exists, except I just wish the characters weren't some cartoon sort of characters.

Tavia still shouts her lines, Ray still whispering away. Anyway I still don't buy Ray as some professor. He looks none of those.

Anyway forget the science. Forget the investigation. These two are the series' weakest link. I hope to see some kissing scenes and bed scenes between Tavia and Ray since Ray's character is so bland, Tavia so passionate, would be great to see a passionate kiss, that is Tavia bringing out the passionate aspect of Ray's Kings. The way he asked her to be his girlfriend is also so straightforward. This man knows no subtlety when it comes to romance. And with such parents, a great wonder how he turned out almost normal as a human being.

Episode 01
I actually sat down to watch the entire episode 1 which I have watched a year before at ASTRO Preview but I suppose I might have missed about 10 minutes of it back then because I have no recollection of certain scenes. About half an hour into the series, my sister turned to me and asked "Why am I watching this boring show? If TVB fails at episode 1, the rest will be bad" but I said "Ep 1 usually is very bombastic, it will cool down in episode 2 but by episode 5 you may groan a little at the story" which is true. And the way I see it, at its core this is not some smart detective drama but like the title says, Mysteries Of Love, so we have 2 different perspective of love; one is friends with benefit sort of love and the other, Ray and Tavia represents the K-Drama or as my sister says, the Bollywood drama; rich boy in love with poor girl ala Bobby.I can't disagree. But when I heard the name Kingsley King Bok and "Gordon" calling him "KINGS!!" I just go "OH MY GAWDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!" like I did 1 year before. I am trying very hard to like this series. After watching episode 1, I can safely say it is not really Galileo Ciplak in essence. It has none the subtlety or fine storytelling or mysteries of Galileo and I have always said if TVB could follow Galileo's storyline, this would be a good story. Unfortunately this is one TVB series where anyone without a nickname is like a forbidden character, coupled with loud music and even worse characters; I so hate King's family. Such foul bombastic arrogant snobs. The story ain't Galileo and that is such a shame. Because if TVB said I am trying to be different with this series, sorry, it has TVB stamped all over it. Whilst Tavia's Sai Lik Mui (another nickname!) is earnest and helpful and nice, my sister commented "What's wrong with such a diligent hardworking character?" and my answer is "Nothing wrong, except her diligence will be of no use in this series because the 2nd and third act will be about love" which is true. Story wise, ep 1 is slow and boring. Character wise, everybody is not memorable, at all. Looks wise, Kenneth Ma is hot, no doubt, since the wardrobe dept was careful to give him extra tight jeans, smart jacket, and the shirt always with at least half the buttons unbuttoned. Pity about the hair and his charisma. Because Kenneth Ma a suave sexy competent sensual cop? Nope. Not there yet. Tavia has the usual normal make up, or in TVB world, a tom boy who is a cop who wears more eyeliner, lip gloss and powder than we who work in office. She is surprisingly short next to Kenneth who was surprisingly not much taller than Raymond. Which means Tavia is petite. Her acting is ok, except she talks too loud. She has of course perfected the K-drama crying technique as in loud, louder and loudest. I was however very excited to see her with a little girl from BTROC aka Big Kam Ling meets Small Kam Ling. Raymond Lam's hair is something I wish I can bulldoze it. I hated his hair here. He is too young to be assistant professor? Associate professor? I am not sure of his rank but his perfect Kings is someone 100% perfect except for snobbish parents. He is dressed ala Galileo except Yukawa sensei's suit looks down to earth and yet we all know designer suit and very expensive whilst Ray looked like a bartender albeit a smartly dressed one. So far he has done little but I am sorta irritated how soft spoken his Kings is. The perfect Prince Charming but lacking in charisma. I find him boring but I find Kenneth Ma sexy. So this is one huge change for me. I did say "I can't fault Ray. He's a competent actor but this character sucks" and interestingly my sister replied "He's not a competent actor" which sorta surprised me because she thinks the world of Kenneth Ma and I said "Wait till you look at him more than 30 minutes then you tell me!". Then the ending song is a MV feel ending with short haired Tavia and still that ugly hair Raymond standing in the middle of 3 or 4 blocks of ice. Boring. But the first case which shall require the assistance of this genius professor (who is actually on the panel of experts advising the police as opposed to Yukawa sensei) is that one guy died of I suppose 3 gun shot wounds. One guy said he heard 3 gunshots, another neighbour said he didn't hear anything. So naturally they will need a physics professor to explain why one side can hear 3 gunshots and one can't and which is true. The case is true but the need to explain that is my attempt at sarcasm by the way. And I am not even sure of Kings is a physics professor. And whatever is real life or TV life, Raymond does not look or more importantly feel like a professor. He should have been made a junior or something. Again I am not sure what's his title is, yet and I shall pay very close attention to it the next time I watch this series.

I suppose I can't say much for the story. I can't help but compare but it is not intelligent stuff. However I feel TVB can do better than to ciplak the Galileo set which by the way feels so sterile. Mysteries of Love in ep 1 is run of the mill stuff. TVB does best with family stories, buddy stories, cop stories but all those investigation stuff, however much they tell you is based on science, we all know they probably read the 1st page and went AHA! THE STORY! but didn't bother with the next 100 pages so all you have is not just half baked but very raw stuff.

I shall see how the case progresses but I really so want to shave off that awful hair on Ray's head. By the way, love is already in the air in ep 2. In fact we are already told they're destined for one another since years ago when their respective ancestors met and irritated one another. And the main selling point of this series seems to be sex or at least Bernice and Kenneth's main selling point. Ooooh la la.

P/S : I so hate the chinese title.

  1. "And I am not even sure of Kings is a physics professor."

    In this series, Prof Kings tackles all fields of science, not only Physics. 2 of the cases involved biology.

    Just check the character profile in TVB website. Kingsley's occupation is stated as 'Associate Professor in the Faculty of Physics' (大學物理系副教授) and his age is 30 years old. Actually the chinese term is 'dai hok mat lei hai fu gau sau'. Dont' know how to translate literary because I don't know where to put the word 'University'. I put it anywhere also it doesn't seem right.

  2. So it is physics! Anyway when you say professor or assistant professor or associate professor, it means university so it is understood.

    Associate at the age of 30? A bit too soon! I know maybe in real genius may be at that level etc, but I am just not convinced.

    I think he tackles even cases involving elementary science when the police should be doing their job! BUT to be fair to kings, he is on their payroll, I consider him a police expert in fields of science so he will testify in court for the police so can't say much on that.

    Oh Yukawa sensei, I miss you so so so so so so much.

  3. "They need Kings to tell them sometimes what you see is not what it really is. Just shows the police has zero investigation technique when they needed a physicist to throw their theory on the time of death."

    Yes, the police are pretty useless here. Kings provide all the brain power for the police.

    "However his parents are such caricature. Come on, his mother ain't some rich socialite, she is a rich headmistress. "

    Agree. King's family is an over the top caricature especially his mother and aunt.

    As for the case, yes, it was a sad and touching case and I think Jason Chan portrayed the gay brother very well. His meekness and all.

    The cases are mostly lousy if you view it from the point of crime investigation story, but, I kinda like the human story behind it. Like the family feud case. It was a very lame case, but, the love between the 2 young couple is very touching. They endure so much to be together and never give up.

    Some of the criminals are quite pitiful.

  4. what's korean way of crying lah?

    ReplyDelete
  5. There will be more to be angry about later. Sai Lei Mui is 100% into Kingsley. She's the one who will be doing all the accommodating.

    Has the family feud case happen let?

    I guess Kingsley is just a very filial son?

    ReplyDelete
  6. Kingsley was in quite a dilemma over the breakup. His mother was sick and his family used her sickness as a bargaining chip to force him to breakup. He would be very unfilial to still keep the relationship to the detriment of his mother's health.

    I wonder if he's like that kampung guy (Fred Cheng), getting walloped until bloody all the time, he would give up or not.

    Sai Lei Mui did one more thing that is even more undignified. But, it was only revealed when Kings tried to get her back. I guess it shows that she really really really loves him.

    It depends of whether you are a hopeless romantic or not. My friend thought the way he got her back was very romantic, but, I felt it's OTT.

  7. "Kingsley was in quite a dilemma over the breakup. His mother was sick and his family used her sickness as a bargaining chip to force him to breakup."

    Actually they didn't. In one scene the aunt (why does she wear those super short skirt? Looks so cheap. Is that the intention? To show for someone talking about class, she dresses like a slut?) in the hospital did complain that Sai Lik Mui was so rude, didn't even turn up to visit King's mother. So they did force him to reconsider her but that was way before the mother had any heart attack. He broke up because he himself couldn't handle the pressure. Coward!

    "I wonder if he's like that kampung guy (Fred Cheng), getting walloped until bloody all the time, he would give up or not."

    Not yet walloped already ran.

    "Sai Lei Mui did one more thing that is even more undignified. But, it was only revealed when Kings tried to get her back. I guess it shows that she really really really loves him."

    Yes I know she tried to kill herself. Really Really loves him? Nope. Really really stupid. I hate not only was she so weak, she was so selfish. Sai Lik Mui is not a good character to begin with. She was so optimistic, helpful, hardworking but then she was reduced into a blubbering idiot.Zero personality.

    That is so NOT Utsumi! Luckily it doesn't even have an ounce of Galileo in it.

  8. Sai Lei Mui is a disgrace to women.No spine and no pride.In every episode,around 30 mins was allocated for the characters love lives.
    I would be crying like Sai Lei Mui if i lost my 1st prize lottery ticket and not over someone like the cowardly Prof. King!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. What do you think of the last case?

    I think King won on luck.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Honestly I missed the first 25 min and when I started watching it was Kings wanting Sai Lik Mui back. So what happened anyway? Raymond Wong is the bad guy right? I still don't get the connection between him and the rich man. Kings I get, he helped to put away his brother.

    ReplyDelete
  11. The rich man was the person caused his family to be broken. That was also the reason his brother came back for revenge. Whether the rich man really did it or not was not stated clearly. But, Raymond and his brother both believe that this rich man framed their father from crime he didn't do.

    I don't recall very well the details. Hope Bridget will correct any mistaken info I gave.
