Pretty interesting. Love the theme song. :)
The only annoying thing is when they show the same special effect over and over again. :glare:

You mean when the phone connection was made? :D :D

I liked the show, specially the "first" part, the story seemed to flow very fast and didn't drag.

Yup, that scene was tiresome after a while. It was way too long--could've been shortened.

Honestly, I think this is the best (TVB series) of the year. The others I gave up after initial episodes or fast-forwarded a lot. Aside from homicide cases, I really liked the spirit of it. Oftentimes, they tend to overdo repentance, but here I felt, there IS going back or you can start over after you screw up. That's why I said it was personally therapeutic.

Also the love stories were sweet. Maybe because they were so simple, but for once, love without shouldering all that pressure. None of that I'll die without you or If I can't get you, then nobody can stuff, but still very touching.

It was my favourite HK dramas of this year. It moved at quite a fast pace and I really liked the way it ended too. Usually in dramas, I tend to be disappointed in the endings (kind of like whenever I watch anime) but I thought the ending for this series was very appropriate and fitting. The characters were very real and you really feel for them.

I found 3 different batch torrents for the complete series (2 mandarin, 1 cantonese) that came out in late Oct/early Nov, might want to give it a shot, but dunno if there are seeds:

By the number of votes, it doesn't look like many people have seen it... I have it with Eng subs, and might share low quality encodes later on, but I have such outdated equip so it takes forever. Need to get The Rose moving first.

This serie was ok. Not good but not bad either. The theme song was the best though. I likethe first part when Flora was good then when she was bad I just fast forwarded the serie. It wasn't interesting anymore. It wasn't worth keeping it so already deleted the entire serie. Now I'm watching The Last Breakthrough. Honestly can say this is the best serie of this year I've seen.

We all have our opinions. Still standing that this is the best series of the year.

I'm a little over halfway through The Last Breakthrough, and I think it has a great topic, and I found it really inspirational in the beginning, made me cry a couple of times, but the character development seems rather flat, and I don't find it realistic enough. Disappointed me a little bit--they're going for a less dramatic atmosphere, but it gets... bland I guess.

In my opinion, The Conqueror's Story is stronger (if not for how they messed up Lau Bong's character), but I would not have understood 40% of the dialogue without help--but refreshing to see correct language being used.

I'm just curious as to the back up on certain projects translating/timing/subbing issues? There seem to be so many different people working on different series, but there are like 4 different ones that are hella behind. I'm sensing lack of organization somewhere. If I can help in any way......minus the translating (white girl can't read kanji of any sort) holla. Just tell me what program to use and I can figure out the rest...kk....laterz

While I do consider this series better than what TVB has be churning out lately, I thought the ending was so hokey!
I mean geez, they spent the whole series changing the future and then in the end, the monk Zhou Buo Tong comes and gives this spiel to the dad about leaving time alone. Er, really... and I thought this whole time that changing the future was a good thing (2/3 of it anyways). :blink And lest not to forget Wheelchair Flora vs. Triad Flora. Yes, he should feel bad about Triad Flora but the one he really loves is Wheelchair Flora. Based on DNA, Wheelchair Flora=Triad Flora but based on personality they are way different. Suppose that they were identical twins, who would Roger really pick?

It was a good series espcially the first half of it. I especially like the rainbow part and the morse code relationship via the phone. But ohh the second part of the series became very annoying with the very typical misunderstandings and I hate how it ended too. But overall its a good series :D

wasn't the best - but i liked this drama far more than the winners of 2004 at the TVB awards. Flora Chan deserved more credit for her role here.

*sigh* Let me add to the rage. B)
Since Roger knew who "kidnapped" Flora as a child, they could've changed her life for the better and the brother could still be born but nooooooo, they had to leave the messed up timeline alone. Maybe Flora's bro from a different dimension could kick Roger's ass.

i think the twin dragons thingy one lost appeal half way through...

back to topic... liek most of tvb series left a lot to be desired and many scenes were questionable!

Actually -- > http://www.i4u.com/article421.html

Motorola DynaTAC 8000X (that doesn't look too different from the phone in the series) was introduced in 1983.

This is where I'm watching it right now. It's in Cantonese with traditional Chinese subtitles. I can't really understand that much Cantonese or Chinese characters at all, but I'm still just managing to follow it. :)[/url]
