How long 50 episodes Introduction This is my top favourite period drama in the 80s. Although it has countless flaws in the eyes of the present audience, it still fascinates me. The intriguing story is helped by a strong cast. TVB is unable to come up with such a wonderful cast today. It follows Jin Yong's novel about 70% and leaves enough room for detail. There are 30 episodes for '6 Sword Skill' and 20...

my favorite TVB series of all time. love the chemistry of all the actors. lovely costumes and great cast. i cant find it in my heart to replace anyone especially Chan Fok Sang. her character mad me hate her so much that it made me love her at the same time. it also introduced me to Yeung Pan Pan who played her role fantastically and stole my heart. although it didnt follow the story as well as i wanted to, i love the twist. i just hate the rushed ending and believe that it could have ended better.

Strong casting and very generous budget for the awesome, detail wardrobe and hairdo. Cecilia Wong shined as Ah Zhu and Ciong Ling. The best Murong Fu from all versions, really suit to the description of Murong Fu: elegant like a prince, but very manly.. Opposite to Duan Yu which is a pretty guy and less manly, nicely played by Kent Tong. Strong casting and nicely composed theme songs make this version very memorable. My only complain: Too long and not effective plot at the beginning, but too rush at the end. Some improvisations which is different from the book make the ending a better climax for a final fighting scene, but not better in a philosophical meaning. Murong Fu became mentally ill is actually a better punishment than a death.
