{tvb} 星梦传奇 Voice of Stars Ep 9

I haven't blogged about VOS for a while since MHK took over the timeslot for awhile, and then it got boring to me. However, this week's episode was all about songs from TVB series! I still wasn't interested enough to listen to the judging, so I'll just talk about my thoughts on the singing. haha

Gigi Ho (idk who she is) sang the subtheme from Karma Rider, which was originally sang by Denise Ho, then covered by Hubert Wu for the drama. To be honest, her version was not as good as Denise's or Hubert's... 
Ronald sang the subtheme for Moonlight Resonance. He's not as good as a singer as Suzanna Kwan, of course, but he did really well (imo). Even though I love Fred, I think it's too bad that Ronald doesn't get as enough attention as he does. Ronald's the only other contestant who has performed on all episodes of VOS, but you don't see any news about him at all. His singing is pretty good, so I really hope someone notices him enough to let his talent shine. 
Corinna sang a song by Danny Chan (that I didn't know lol), but she sounded pretty good. She wore a really weird dress, though. 
Yao Bin (I still don't know who he is...) sang one of my favorite themes/songs! haha He sang the theme from Shanghai Bund. It's such a classic, and he did a pretty good job. 
Grace Wong sang The Last Breakthrough's subtheme, which was originally sang by Raymond Lam. It's no doubt one of my favorite songs from him. Although she did a pretty good job, I didn't really like her ad libs haha. It's nice of her to do so, so it's not like she's just copying his version, but I like the original better. Also, I think that Mag Lam sang it better when she was a guest at LF's concert. 
Fred sang Triumph in the Skies' themesong! He already sang it at a function, so I wasn't as excited haha. But I always love his singing, and it was a great performance. 
Finally, Adam Ip (I never knew his name before haha) sang a really old song by Alan Tam for a series called The Turbulent Decade. I'm actually pretty surprised by his performance, since his voice was pretty good. It sounds like a cantopop singer from the 90s! haha I think the only reason he doesn't get any good roles in TVB is cause of his looks, to be honest. 

{tvb} TITS2 & AE Thoughts

The first few episodes were great, so I thought that TVB finally stopped screwing up their sequels, but I guess I was wrong. There were too many characters and subplots that it ended up being unbearable to watch. In all honesty, they should have gotten rid of half of the characters and made it less than 40 episodes. Although I like Sam, his treatment of Holiday made him almost unlikable at the end. I don't really see how he loved Holiday, and I preferred it if Holiday and Jayden ended up together. As for Issac and Summer, I could have done without Josie interfering in their relationship. Roy and Heather was alright, as were Jim Jim and Coco & Hero and Pink Pink. I wish TVB didn't have the Apple storyline and instead focused more on Jayden, whose scenes were cut. TVB should have been thankful that Chilam agreed to film for them instead of cutting his scenes out. I half regret watching the whole series, and the only good things that came out of it was the eyecandy that was Chilam and Him Law. LOL 
So far, I like the ancient storyline better. The cases were all pretty interesting, and I actually liked how it was all tied up to the state teacher's wrongdoings. The premodern period, on the other hand, has gotten to my nerves. I dislike how they gave Circle amnesia, and it really was weird how Tsau Fung "remembered" things that happened to Phoenix in the modern age. But the worse thing of all is Tin Tsau Ngan. Mandy is doing a good job, but I have nothing but hate for her character. It is illogical for her to be so angry at her older sister and be crazy enough to conspire with the person who killed her brother in law. To be honest, I only enjoy the scenes where Circle and Kwai jai are together.
