IN LOVE WITH TVB: BEST THEME SONG OF 2008 With so many excellent series, there are just as many wonderful theme songs. Theme songs should be easy to sing to and has a very catchy tune. The theme song is what introduces or captures the viewer’s attention. Beautiful music is paired with a wonderful singing voice. They simply flow together all the way until it ends. Let’s take a look at our nominees…
1. A Journey Called Life – Linda Chung & Steven Ma 2. Moonlight Resonance – Susanna Kwan 3. Silver Chamber of Sorrows – Ivana Wong ft. Nancy Sit 4. War of In-Laws – FAMA ft Liza Wang
*drum roll* IN LOVE WITH TVB presents this year’s BEST THEME SONG to….
The Results : Like mentioned before, first column represents ranking. Second column is nominee. Third Column represents poll results. Fourth Column represents the additional special guest votes.
MY OPINION Who can’t recognize the series when you hear the amazing piano introduction at the beginning of the song? Who doesn’t know that pitiful tune that climaxes to an emotional outburst? With Susanna’s powerful voice, she makes everyone fall in love with Unintentionally Harm You. Every pause to it has an impact and we enjoy every moment of her singing. My favorite part of the entire song is obviously the climax which is paired with the theme video of everyone throwing red streamers into the air. It leaves a strong impressions as if I need to throw red streamers too (I know..i think I have a bad case of weirdness). Let’s no forget the never ending scenes of slapping, falling and yelling that comes after it =] Of course, it’s no Speechless but it still has the feeling of a classic grand production to it. The words are still catchy and fun to sing along with. It definitely takes me vote for being the best themesong of the year. Let’s take a recap of the beautiful theme song.
Special Version credits to TVBmedia (strongly recommend this user if you want to see the full 4 minute version of themevideos. [this one isn’t the one I described, but just wanted to share it with you])
For anyone else who’s interested, I must give 100% credits to KTVB… I just found out Moonlight Resonance has an OST CD…o.0. it’s been awhile since TVB has released an Original sound track for their series…or maybe I don’t pay enough attention..LOL…
Views on Other Nominees: War of In- Laws by FAMA ft. Liza Wang They were all really good. I'll probably be the only one choosing this. But Susanna's always great. Her voice is just. Wow. Hahaha, and I actually really like all the theme songs, although SCOS's is a little too slow for my liking. It's not something I'd put on repeat on my ipod. It kind of gives me the chills, but I think that's how it's supposed to be. AJCL's theme is really nice and I don't mind this duet. WOIL2, I think chinese rap is hilarious -ahem-MC Jin-ahem- and then the lyrics and everything seem to match really well with the whole concept of the series. But yeah, the song makes me laugh so points for that. – Flor.a
Silver Chamber of Sorrows by Ivana Wong ft. Nancy Sit I actually liked all those theme songs but i thought this theme was very meaningful and matched the series very well and Ivana's singing is so great. – Simply FungYi
COME BACK SOON FOR REST OF THE REVIEW =]

IN LOVE WITH TVB: MOST OVER RATED SERIES OF 2008
The year 2008 has to probably be the most fruitful year for TVB. This year with many highly rated series, viewers are sitting at the inch of their chair. Many series became the hot topic amongst everyone. This person did this, this and this, while that person did this, that and that. Every time a series aired, there would always be speculations of it making it to the anniversary. But could it be that we haven’t seen excellent dramas in awhile, that we completely forgot what a good drama is made up of? Or was it because of its star studded cast? Or is it the screaming and yelling that we have fallen in love with? With so many series being highly rated, it makes it all too mysterious to believe. Could there have been one series we made a mistake on? Let’s take a look at our nominees…
1. Catch Me Now 2. D.I.E 3. Moonlight Resonance 4. War of In-Laws
You voted and now I have it. Which series seemed to run too high? *drum roll* In Love With TVB presents this year’s MOST OVER RATED SERIES to...
Let's take a look at our results in case people don't believe it: The first column simply shows what the placement for each series is. The second column is what you guys voted and the third column includes our special guest's choices. As you may notice, the overall number of votes hasn't been changed. This is the special guest's privileges.
Here is what some of our special guests' reasons were: I felt as if this series had too much hype and it didn't have as great of a storyline as Heart of Greed did. – TVB Think
And as much as I enjoyed the series as a whole, some parts were kind of draggy. Some characters were either very well written or poorly written, or the artiste didn't portray their own individual role well enough that kind of caused the series to be boring to watch at times. The family feuds were...annoying in some aspects. Some were too over the top but I think there were better series this year, and that it's great that MR doesn't fall under the spell of all sequels. It was good, but definitely overrated. - Flor.a
MR was a good series but it did not live up to the high expectations that everyone made it to be. - teddieburr
MY OPINION: Well the results actually shocked me because I thought there were many Moonlight Resonance fans. I personally voted for D.I.E but I can also see why Moonlight earns most over rated. Some of the problems with Moonlight are character developments; there were some that were perfectly nice while others that were perfectly evil. The ones who were in between had some development, but still not convincing. Most confusing part is that the villains even though have been revealed of their evil plans…still manage to somehow stay with the good guys. Either the family is stupid or TVB writers get drunk each time they write a scene and forget what they wrote previously. As well, the chemistry in this series was just ridiculous or poorly written. Some parts I felt were just trying so hard to make a “family-time” scene while some parts were really trying to push us into crying. This series also gained a lot of its points during the argument scenes… meaning every episode. For me, I didn’t understand why the series peaked at 50 points during that last episode where Yu So Sam returns the money to Hor Ma and Jo Bao. I honestly expected it to happen, it was no surprise. Maybe it’s because the scene peaked at 50 points because people have never seen Michelle Yim screaming so furiously which I applaud but I wouldn’t expect it to reach 50 points. But the fact is that… the series did peak at 50 points. How, I still don’t know. But one thing for sure, many of us question how Moonlight Resonance managed to grab such high ratings with so much flaws to its series.
Views on other nominees: D.I.E: Although i like this series but I still wonder how it got the ratings it received in HK there really wasn't much of a storyline there. The ending the D.I.E was just horrible and nonsense IMO it really didn't make sense and i felt they should have kept the original ending with Roger dyeing. I think the ending just bought the series as a whole down. – Simply FungYi
War Of In-Laws II The show was focused on Myolie &Liza. I don't know whether it's the script or the acting, but Myolie &Liza tend to be too exaggerated at times (especially the former). So instead of being funny (like it's meant to be), it gets quite irritating. xD – TVB Obsessions
IN LOVE WITH TVB: MOST UNDER RATED SERIES OF 2008 Not only was TVB fruitful in ratings but they were also fruitful in storylines. Some were refreshing with its idea. Others were refreshing with its acting. Yet some how these series didn’t receive higher ratings when they were up to par to the highest rated. Could it be the lack of cast? The lack of family drama? Let’s take a look at our nominees …
1. Last One Standing 2. Love Exchange 3. Silver Chamber of Sorrows 4. When a Dog Loves a Cat Which series was under credited for its work and storyline?
*drum roll* In Love With TVB presents this year’s MOST UNDER RATED SERIES to…
The Results [column explanation is same as previous]
What Our Special Guests Had to Say:
I didn't watch SCOS and WADLAC, I didn't finish Love Exchange and LOS is a really well written, well acted series. Although I think it took me longer to get addicted to the series, whereas I've read reviews where a lot of viewers got hooked right from the beginning. But from episodes 10+ it really did it for me, and I couldn't stop watching it. Roger's aesthetic appeal in the series reminds me of my cousin so it's kinda weird, I think it's the hair. Anyway, Kevin shows that his acting is capable of winning an award. Award in general, not one of tvb's er, rigged one..aside from this year – Flor.a
I thought this series had a well written plot and was really interesting plus big improvement in acting for Kevin and good to see Roger in a villain role for once. The series was very suspenseful and always had me at the edge of my seat wonder what was going to happen next to the characters. –Simply FungYi
I haven't watched this yet but from what I heard from fellow bloggers and fans..it's very very good. WDLC and LE were so boring to me and TSCoS was just ok so that's why i choose LOS. – teddieburr
MY OPINION Like many others, I too was shocked to find Last One Standing to have such poor ratings. I actually think it’s the best series of 2008 because of the wonderful acting and plot. It was refreshing from the pile of family dramas with a totally different genre. This intense series was heart gripping and shocking. It truly pushed out the acting capabilities of the cast members and everything was daring. Everything was thrilling whether it was watching Roger Kwok choking Elaine Yiu or Kevin Cheng fighting for his life in the office. You just couldn’t miss a beat and the music in the background went so well with everything. It just had a completely different feel to the series we were so use to. It really did have a classic series feel to it because you would just fall into character with every one of them. You know something is lurking around the corner but you have no clue what it is. All you can do is scream at the screen to tell the cast to run for lives. I am extremely shocked and disappointed to find this series not even making it into TOP 10!
View on other nominees: Silver Chamber of Sorrows This series should have been promoted more because it has a great storyline. I think this series was better then Moonlight Resonance. –TVB Think
Last One Standing was great, but it wasn't underrated, was it? When Dogs Love Cats had a pretty lame storyline to start with, &Love Exchange was such a big disappointment (the sales presentation was so exciting, but reality was...). Silver didn't have a popular/young cast, but it did great even without so much promos~ TVB Obsessions
AND THAT'S IT FOR THE FIRST PART OF THE YEAR END REVIEW. SORRY FOR THE LONG WAIT...MAKING IMAGES TO GO WITH IT ALL..IS VERY DIFFICULT. HOPE YOU GUYS UNDERSTAND! MORE PARTS COMING SOON...

Myolie Wu...Leaving TVB Acting behind? [original title: Myolie Wu Moving Away from Fa Dan] Thursday December 11, 2008 Hong Kong Credit: myoliewu.org & YES!!#926 and to linnette_zj @ Myolie's Forum http://myolie-wu.8forum.net
All along there are quite a few artistes who became singers, for example, a few years ago, there were Louis Koo, Flora Chan, Wong Hei, etc. Although after they became singers, the response wasnt very big, but at least they tried! Recently, the trend is back again, starting from Raymond Lam to Linda Chung , Bosco Wong and Myolie Wu. All of them are TVB Siu San and Fa dan. But to be successful, have to really work harder than other singers, because they have to change the image that is already fixed in the eyes of the audience! This time, Myolie decided to try it, have to say Goodbye to Fa Dan.
I can't believe this...I really don't want Myolie to leave!! I know, many have including me criticize her sometimes on her acting but she changed my mind this year. After watching War of In-Laws II, I quite like her acting. She pin points certain emotions really well. Some say she exaggerates but honestly...what current TVB fa dan hasn't exaggerated [DONT GET ME STARTED..LOL]. Some may say, watch her performance in Tai Chi which aired this year..but you cant really count that one..since that was filmed awhile ago. As well, When A Dog Loves A Cat...wasn't too bad.I feel like she's improving and I really hoped to watch her upcoming dramas. She's one of fa dans I feel who have potential to make it bigger.
Yet, I have to admit, I think she does have a chance in the music industry. Ever since she sang her first song, 1+1 (not sure if this is the first) but I really liked her singing. I think I've listened to all her songs and I quite like most of them. And she probably has the the strongest singing voice in my opinion out of the fa dans atm. So I guess I can also see her future in singing...
But lastly...I really hope this isn't confirmed yet. Why not do both?!! Besides...i dont want this to be her final news article for TVB....I still need to write up my spotlight for her....I'm just waiting for a good article to post thoughts about...SO MYOLIE...DONT PLAN TO LEAVE...DO BOTH!!! I STILL NEED TO SPOT LIGHT YOUUU!!! I would not consider this a spotlight...since I dont have a banner ready or anything...TOT I type this up quickly cause I honestly dont want her to go..
ANYWAYS..if this does happen to be confirmed..I share with you all my latest addition to the music box...two of my favourite Myolie songs from her album : Evolve.
