Been catching up on the past few years worth of TVB dramas lately cause I pretty much stopped watching TVB after the The Academy/OTFB/E.U series. So far I've watched:
-A Great Way to Care - 8.5/10 - Never have I ever felt so smart watching a drama. Watching an episode of this was like sitting through a psyc lecture.
-A Great Way to Care 2 - 5.5/10 - This was sorely disappointing. Pretty much a recycle of the first one.
-Highs and Lows - 7/10 - This one was just alright. Didn't love it, but it wasn't too bad either.
-Friendly Fire - 9/10 - Enjoyed this one a lot actually, even though it was the typical TVB-someone-dies-but-all-ends-well kind of drama. One of the better TVB series I've ever seen.

Just started watching Lives of Omission. Maybe it's cause I'm just a couple episodes in, but it's not that great imo. Hoping it'll get better as I get further into the series.

I'm really liking the new series that HKTV is putting out.

Love the fact that they use all the newest film equipment and their productions are very cinematic.

The thing with TVB dramas some shit get's so predictable and recycled and alot of the dramas they put out are too unrealistic where you end up going

With that said I watched
The Confidant: 8.5/10 - Solid acting, story and love the historical drama
Friendly Fire: 6.5/10 - Meh. Watched it to past time. The supporting couple (Sharon Chan & Sammy Leung) had a lot of chemistry
Lives of Omission: 7.5/10 - (This is basically The Academy / EU 4 or 5th edition with focus on Laughing Gor)
Highs & Lows: 8/10 - Cop drama with play on Infernal Affairs. Both male leads were great in this series IMO
Tiger Cubs: 9/10. This is like an SDU version of The Academy & E.U. It ties in with High & Lows.

If you are into HK police drams watch Tiger Cubs first and then Highs and Lows.

Currently not watching any TVB Dramas. Finding most of the recent dramas pretty stale and boring. Looking forward to Triumph in the skies 2 and Tiger Cubs 2 whenever that comes out.

I can't stand watching TVB dramas anymore. It's so garbage. Since the broadcast of Police Boundaries from HKTV, it has given me hope that the tides will turn in HKTV's favor of obtaining their broadcasting licence. TVB production feels so second-class compared to Chinese, Korean, Taiwanese, and Japanese productions. I feel that my IQ is plummeting when I watch TVB stuff.

I just watched the first episode today, and man it was good. I thought I was watching a movie at first...until I realized it was a new drama from HKTV lol.

So glad that HKTV is coming out with new dramas that actually have interesting/new plots vs the same old boring TVB..

Just finished ep. 3 of TITS2, why is Fala Chen one of the leads in this drama? Her acting is appalling, she can't cry for shit if her life depended on it and is being outshined by other leads. She is being out-acted next to the king of acting Francis Ng, Chi Lam, and soon, Myolie (even though I'm not a fan of her, she's a way better actress). Fala looks so out of place.

I hope not, but it looks that way for now. It makes sense why they would issue it in 2015, but for the HK government to not provide any type of timeline since the announcement back in 2008 is a joke. TVB better watch their back cause it's been said countless of times that they would lose at least 20% of their employees if HKTV's licence was granted. Prior to HKTV producing any dramas, TVB already lost 50 directors and producers to HKTV during the same period. The hatred is deep. Lol

Yes yes yes and yes. Fuck I cannot stand her..but the rest of what I've seen so far isn't too bad. The main gripe I have with TITS2 for now is the theme song. I loved the theme song for the first one, but this one though ...
