{tvb} Friendly Fire Final Thoughts

As I stated before, I started Friendly Fire with no expectations at all, and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. Since this was coming from a new producer, I didn't expect the series to be that entertaining. However, Friendly Fire was well worth watching. 

Michael Tse as JJ Kam Jo Jan
I was actually disappointed in this character. Although it is true that JJ still loved Chris, he should not have lead Moon on. His character also took a weird turn after his father died, and it was unrealistic how he would harass Pong Tit Sum and tell a witness to lie in court. Michael did do a good job with JJ, and I was glad he did not show his Laughing Gor side anymore.
Tavia Yeung as Chris Fong Tin Lam
A strong character, and one who knows how to love herself. However, it wouldn't make sense for her to always reject JJ, since he was truly sincere. I loved how she had true faith in the justice system and how she was a good mentor to the trainees. However, one weird thing was when she talked to Kam Po Cheung when he was in his coma. Normal people would be hoping that he would live, but she kept saying how it was okay for him to die. Of course, she shouldn't be giving anyone false hope, but her dialogue made it seem as if though she wanted Po Cheung to die. Tavia did very well in her court scenes, and her comedic scenes were funny too. 

Sammy Leung as Kam Po Ti
It's no secret that I love Po Ti Sir. It's true that he's one of those cliche good guys, but I still like him a lot. He's a good kid, and I loved his scenes with JJ and their dad. The funniest scene, in my opinion, was when Judge Man took him out to lunch, and everyone thought he was handicapped because of the way she treated him. His love line with Mei Sun was nothing special, but he would definitely make a sweet boyfriend. Sammy's a decent actor, and his expressions can be cute sometimes. haha
Sharon Chan as Ngai Mei Sun
Mei Sun is a nice girl, except for the fact that she lead her boyfriend on for so long. She didn't really like him, so why be in a relationship with him for ten years? In other aspects, she's caring and a good friend, but nothing special. Sharon was okay in this, but I feel like her acting wasn't as good as it could have been.
The supporting characters were all good, I especially liked Samantha Ko as Kiki. Alice Chan was also good  as Pong Tit Sum, especially since I hated her so much. Louis and Grace were sweet together, it's just too bad that they didn't have many scenes after they went out. Also, the veterans were all good as usual; I loved Benz Hui. 
And just in case you guys haven't watched this, the trainees are singing Be True by Joey Yung. They sang it for Kiki in the series, and this version Samantha sings in it as well. I really liked the scene when Kiki played the video that they made for her; it was very touching.

  1. Hmm, JJ really didn't remind you of Laughing? I felt the opposite of you. Here's my review: http://casualtvb.blogspot.ca/2013/02/friendly-fire-review.html
