Does anyone that has seen this series recommend it? The ratings weren't so great, but sometimes that doesn't necessarily mean a bad drama.

[HKDrama] Burning Flame 3 (TVB 2009)

Hello! I just started this third installment of TVB's fireman-based series. The first series was the best and had characters that really drew me in as well as a good climax in the plot. The second series was not a standout for me. And now we're at the third so what do you think? My thoughts so far (...

I didn't know the part about the writer thinking of Vic when he wrote the part, but I do agree he's doing a good job at picking different roles for himself (if indeed he does.. the system they have in Asia is a little reminiscent of old Hollywood it seems).

Therefore, JingTian is definitely not Li Xiao Yao, but later on in the game you'll discover that JingTian is the in fact the master of Li Xiao Yao's father. Yes, the setting of CP3 is 50 years before CP1 =) Hu...

You don't know how much I agree!! Yeah, I watch about 1-2 dramas per season too. And even those sometimes I don't finish entirely. I miss the caliber of the late 90s early 00s dramas.

The occasional manga-derived drama feels fresh but now the industry is inundated with them. ~__~
