the first TW series that hooked me was Huang Zhe Ge Ge I (that was 4 years ago)~ then II.................and then Meteor Garden.......

and pretty much i've been hooked on TW dramas ever since.

i'm not sure if there was "a first" TW series, but there was a thread about "your favorite" TW series in the Chinese Entertainment forum. :)

I believe HZGG 1 and 2 are Mainland productions, while 3 is Taiwan? I could be wrong. All three have definitely got Taiwan and Mainland stars/people collaborating in them, anyway. A great series of series. :P

If it's the very first Tw drama ever, I think my first was the Taiwan remake of the ancient wuxia story Legendary Twins, with Jimmy Lin and Alec Su. Awesome and fun series!

As for Tw idol dramas, the first was Meteor Garden! Then I went F4 hunting and was rather disappointed with Marmalade Boy, Poor Prince, Love Storm, etc, till Mars came along and saved the day. :wub:

Since Legendary Twins, I've seen quite a few Tw series. Some of them are lame beyond compare. But on the other hand, the good series are exceptional. :)

The first twdrama I ever saw was, of course, "Meteor Garden". I moved on to jdramas and kdramas but "The Outsiders" and "Mars" brought me back to twdramas. I've been kind of disappointed with some of the other F4 dramas--I couldn't make it through the first episode of "Love Storm", but I did enjoy "Marmalade Boy" (probably because I really enjoyed the manga)--but "Mars" was fantastic.

Lately, I've been watching "Devil Beside You", "Express Boy", and "It Started with a Kiss", all of which I'm enjoying very much. :wub:

You too? There is just something about Vanness. Sure, he didn't have nearly as big a role as Jerry, Barbie, and Vic, but I thought he was adorable and have been obsessed with him ever since. :wub:

My first twdrama... Meteor Garden. To be honest I don't like tw dramas much, the tacky acting annoys me.

It seems a lot of us had Meteor Garden as their first Taiwan series. It's what tuned me into Taiwanese and Chinese series. Unfortunately, I haven't seen any that compared to it since.

I watched a couple of taiwanese shows when i was a kid, but i don't rememebr the titles for them. The taiwanese oldest show that i watched, that i actually remember the English title of would have to be Meteor Garden. I think that show got me addicted to Taiwanese dramas...after that series, I started watching taiwanese dramas all the time.

The first Taiwanese series I've watched was Meteor Garden, though they say that The Amazing Twins was the first Tsinovela (Chinese shows) shown here in the Philippines. As of now, I'm loving Prince Turns Frog. :wub:

my first taiwanese dorama was meteor garden, and it was my very first drama too...
It's because of it that i'm hooked to dorama today......

I know this serie suck a little ( because of the very bad acting ) but i can't help it .... I often watch an episode.... I'm addicted to the hanadan story ...

Mine was Meteor Garden, too (also so far the only one). But only because I'm so hooked on Hana yori Dango that I couldn't resist checking on a drama that I didn't understand a single word of. ^^;
Not only do I think the acting could be better, the quality of visuals and sounds is also quite poor. According to the low budget, I guess they made the best of what they had.

My first TW drama was Meteor Garden...second and last was Mars...i also saw a little bit of MVP Valentine and Devil Beside You, i also wanted to wath The Outsiders but never got around to seeing it because of 'Full House' and various other Kdramas and Canto dramas and some Jdrama...

Even though i've only seen two, i guess compared to kdramas and Jdramas, TW dramas don't really cut it - especially acting wise - or maybe its just the TW dramas i've seen...

I do not know my first series >_>. I was only young when i started it Probably like around 11 years old.
I watch all the mandarin series from channel 18 at 12pm and 7 pm because I have no source to get more. Plus, I didn't like it back then, I was forced by my parents. But about 4 years ago, I fell in love and I started to watch more than my parents. So yeah, about 9 years with Chinese drama and at least 4 or 5 years of mandarin school. I pretty much understand.. and can't really speak well, just decent. Wish I hadn't messed around when I was younger.

Being born in TW, I've grown up on TW drama.

The first drama that I can recall enjoying is YanYuMengMeng (Smoke-Rain-misty-misty, circa 1984?) and JiDuXiYangHong, tho I don't remember which came first. I still find that to be classic in it's force and novel for it's time. Of course, the genre's been done to death since then. I guess for you youngsters it would look ultra dated. Virtually all of the dramas in that period are crap tho, hence I generally refuse to remember them :lol

YanYuMengMeng was remade with Vicky Zhao and co, but I found that underwhelming from plot and acting view.

Not sure if it was a taiwan's production but I know it had Da S in it. She looked good in ancient clothing...She played as a demon in love with a human being...which it was prohibited. Not sure of the the title...

hurm i watched a lot of chinese series. but tw drama that really hooked me is meteor garden. i was obsessed for awhile with F4. i like vic zhou but you know as you watch meteor garden you simply like jerry character better. it's all lovey dovey. since barbie didn' end up with vic in meteor garden you're kinda hoping they will be together in another series.then mars comes along. that was good series although i don't really like barbie character in that.

My first Taiwan drama was... ::drum rolls:: Meteor Garden. My mother borrowed the series (and All About Eve) from the local library and took over the only tv in the house. I actually hated it in the beginning, but it grew on me (whining about how I wanted to watch regular tv didn't help much). Now TW dramas consume a lot of my tv time...

my first TW drama was meteor garden...actually it was my first drama ever, so it'll always be special to me ;)....its kinda insane how i watched it though....went over to my taiwanese friends house a million weekends in a row so she could translate the whole show for me and my other friend...then we went thorugh this whole F4 phase [love jerry] actually i watched it again i think last nov, its a good drama so if anyone hasn't seen it yet you should...and if you have seen and liked it i recommend the jdrama hana yori dango- same story but wayyyy condensed compared to MG

Actually, it's not surprising. TW was in a slump where the majority of dramas produced were of low quality "localized" dramas of negligible interest beyond TW.

I happened to be in TW on vacation and watched the episode when it was first shown (parents were playing mah-jong, I had nothing to do, etc). I knew about the series beforehand because I was a regular watcher of the Happy Sunday variety show which auditioned F4 and announced the MG project.

After the first episode, I immediately knew that it was going to be big. Sure enough, it set many records in terms of how many countries it was shown in, sparked F4-mania, etc. It also started a renaissance of mandarin speaking drama in TW largely targeted towards the younger audience, choosing actors mainly by popularity, which continues to this day.

My first TW drama (and it was also my first drama) was MARS, and i've watched it because i was deeply in love with the manga :)

I've seen some other TW drama after Mars, (Meteor Garden, Devil Beside you, It started with a Kiss, Lavender, love contract) but Mars and Devil Beside You are my favorites.

I can't watch all what I would like, because I'm french and I don't speak chinese language. So I watch those with english subtitle.

My first was Meteor Garden when it aired in the Philippines. But right now, I'm not so crazy about F4. Now, I'm more about Rain, Kang Ta, Wang Lee Hom, and Se7en on singers.
