    6. Having Wong Hei's ultimate good guy character in burning flames II, Kei Tak die in the end leaving his poor adorable daughter all alone.

    7. Pagaent winners getting lead roles in TVB dramas.....even when they CANT ACT!!! [ex. anne heung, sonija kwok]

    8. Pagaent winners-turned-actresses getting lead/important roles again n again after a big flop in their 1st/2nd/3rd attempt......

    9. Michele Saram getting a role of an ancient CHINESE princess in ASITP.....she does not look remotely chinese...or princess-like...

    p/s: not that i have anything against pagaent winners, i really dont..but if they cant act, why make them act???AND make us sit through it?

    10. Tired of years of success in Hong Kong and international films, Chow Yun Fat decides that his heart is still with TVB, and returns to his roots at TVB to make THE BUND 2005.

    Bobby Au Yeung? I guess he hasn't played too many heavies since becoming a star over the course of the past decade, but in his "keh-leh-feh" days back in the 1980s, he played a whole slew of unsavory characters. My first experience watching him act was seeing him play a good-for-nothing, conniving, murderous playboy in some 1983 cop drama starring Dodo Cheng and Au Yeung Pui San.

    I've seen that series! The story was too preposterous. Liza falls into a coma for 16 years and wakes up again. She's time-warped and can't relate to her family or society. Against all obstacles she learns how to walk, talk, become a successful businesswoman, and wins Damian Lau's heart again!

    All in all she still played the "Lui keung yan" role.

    I just don't get why TVB promotes Steven Ma. He isn't particularly good-looking or imposing. His acting consists of the same weepy face and the only time I could tolerate him was when he was in Better Halves. Sniff-weep-sniff-weep.

    What happened to Louisa? With her level of talent I hope she moves into film-making and forget about this whole silly TVB mess.

    All the above scenerios have already happened. TVB has done all the above things. Why would these scenerios still be considered unlikely?

    Wasn't that the one when she slept through 20 years in the hospital and then miraculously wakes up with amnesia? And when she did, her husband is interested in another lady .... blah blah and then she smartens up. Can't remember if Maggie was her daughter though.

    The Awakening Story.

    Maggie and Tavia both acted as Liza's daughters. Damien Lau played Liza's husband, who hooked up with Louisa So during Liza's long stay in the hospital.

    no, they're scenarios that are meant to have not happened yet, and scenarios that we'd like to see happen.

    just to add onto this one....

    24. TVB will make a series that doesn't involve love-triangles, quadrangles, etc.

    Barbara Yung... Isn't that Yung Mei Ling. I don't think you will want her to act again as she did commit suicide in the 80s.

    That is precisely why the scenario is unlikely.

    11. Amy Kwok (a Miss HK winner) is a Master Degree holder. Other than her, there are many other Miss HKs with high acedemic achievement and high intelligence. Can't act does not equal stupid.

    14. Moses Chan's character in Better Halves, Split Second and Family Man does not have any younger brother.

    15. See "Wong Fei Hung Returns (1992)"
