2012 End of Year Drama Review

This year I opened myself to different dramas as well as different genres of dramas. There were some ups and some downs and there were some surprises. I haven’t seen as much k-dramas, c-dramas and tw-dramas as I would have liked so my new years resolution for next year is to watch more dramas outside of hk-dramas. As I do not watch k-dramas, c-dramas, dormas/j-dramas and tw-dramas as often as I watch hk-dramas, I tend to be picky with what I watch and usually I would pick up dramas that I find interesting or  appealing to my tastes.

This year I managed to watch some dramas that were really up there as well as a few that fell below the radar. I found myself jumping back into the c-drama bandwagon after a long overdue hiatus and for those that I watched, I found it bombarded with tw-actors/actresses which is probably why I am drawn to them in the first place. Ahahahas! This year, I ventured out into doramas for the first time (yay!) and I was ever so glad I did because this drama literally blew me away and makes me ready to jump into doramas. With hk-dramas, there were a few that I loved but there was only which I loved everything from top to bottom and in between. Even until today I am still swooning over it. I was quite picky with my k-dramas so all in all, I was satisfied with what I watched, though this year with what I watched I find it in high standards of all sorts. Lastly, with tw-dramas, nothing really blew my socks off and I wasn’t overly excited for any one drama so this year for me, I wasn’t too happy with the offerings of tw-dramas when compared to last year’s share.

Sergeant Tabloid Episodes 16-20 Overview

Oddly, I had twenty-one eps… LOL, maybe it was a special two hour broadcast? Anyway, I especially loved the ending with the two flying butterflies. Wasn’t that symbolic? The butterflies were  a beautiful reminder that people can change from bad to good. Yay! Yat Yat and Lui Hap got together in the end! But I was really disappointed with how they treated each other after they started dating. They were bickering before they started dating, now they are all too sweet with each other. I would have much prefered it if they still bickered with each other. Anyway, a nice drama with plenty of room for a sequel to develop. (: The characters all had their own ending which was a nice touch. Continue reading

Sergeant Tabloid Episodes 11-15 Overview

First of all, I’m going to start off with quick quick recap. If you like this, please tell me and I would be more than happy to do so. 🙂 It’s been over half the drama and I am disappointed because I have yet to see some romantic progress with the lead couple. I am pleased that they are slowly getting over their ‘dislikeness’ towards each other. I am annoyed at Madam Kui’s father. Can I call him sexist? One more annoyance is Oi Oi. It’s her voice, her acting and everything in between. However, I do find her voice more tolerable. Continue reading

My Opinion on Sergeant Tabloid Episodes 6-10

What a fast 5 episodes.  Finally, Matthew makes an appearance! So much happened yet it all seem to flow in a way. Dating, fights, break-ups, friendships, you name it and it has probably happened. Niki is still as brilliant as she ever is in any of her roles. Surprising she really suits being a police officer but she has handled that more on the emotional side, which suits her well because she has done an excellent execution of her role. Michael can play any role! From serious to comedic, he really does a good portrayal of it. Urghhhh, why is Mandy always given the cool/fierce/determined role?  Continue reading

My Opinion on Sergeant Tabloid Episodes 1-5

I think that it is kind of ironic that Michael Tse is playing a reporter. I was kind of expecting him to be playing some kind of police officer because of his now famous Laughing Gor role. Niki Chow is once again given the emotional role of Lui Fei Hap. Not that I have anything against it, but I would like to see her with some challenging role. And hi Mandy Wong once again! She is ubiquitous! She is in every drama that I have seen recently. And it’s nice to see Matthew Ko back on screen. I missed his handsome face. It’s interesting how both of his dramas are warehoused dramas – The Greatness of  a Hero and this drama. I also like Lui Hap’s group of besties. I actually like this drama.

Throw in some romance and police and what do you get? A wonderful drama! Continue reading
