No problem, Chenjamin . I've gotten other people thinking I'm a guy, maybe because it's assumed girls aren't interested in wuxia series. Lian Cheng Jue was more serious than some wuxia series I've seen, though I didn't think any part of it dragged, except for some scenes when they were all stuck in ...

I actually don't find many of the mainland actors attractive. I like the Japanese and a few Korean actors better. Ah I feel like a traitor. I do like, Jimmy Lin(林志颖), Alec Su(苏有朋) from a few dramas. [决代双矫] anyone? 决代双矫 with Jimmy and Alec 太好玩儿了! One of my fav Tw series. 小鱼儿很可爱。 Nothing traitorish a...

If you want to nominate a series for the next CSoTM, do it in this thread.

ZybeR, thanks very much for helping out here. There should be a seed for every batch eventually; since this series is so huge in size and ep number, it's hard for the volunteer seeders to get to every batch immediately.

Haven't watched season 3 just yet. So it's not as good as the 2nd? I'd say 1 and 2 are comparable to each other in goodness. I didn't like the last story in 1 as much as the rest of it, but it's still great overall. They introduce a lot of pretty actresses in series like this. That hua-hua Emperor.

Jiang Xin has appeared in a lot of ancient series like Tian Long Ba Ba, Da Jiao Ma Huang Hou, Xian Jian Qi Xia Zhuan and Liao Zhai too.

Barbara is so awesome as Rong'er. :)

I'd take Jimmy Lin over Alec Su any day. Definitely agree with Vic Zhou and Mike He, and I'd add Ken Zhu, Eddie Peng and Blue Lan to the Taiwan list too.

But I want to know where all my Mainland hotties are! :unsure: :P
