    Why aren't there an option for liking BOTH? Because I like both ancient and modern, period!

    I like ancient series of the past from tvb, but now it's sooooo disappointing. Now, I like ancient series from mainland china or those in collaboration w/ ATV. modern series are a bit repetitive now-a-dayz and is not as down-to-earth as those from back in the day, but at least hair and fashion are amusing to watch.
    How come most 江湖 (jiāngh) wanderers never worry about money? I wonder how a 大俠 (dxi) make a living...does meddling in people's business and righting wrongs pay well?

    Definitely ancient because I see enough of modern stuff around me. And plus every modern series I've seen so far has just been full of sap and angst. The plots in ancient series are much more interesting.

    Ancient ~ I prefer Mainland series because of their breathaking sceneries and costumes. Taiwanese and HK ones often have way too much slapstick humor which is quite inappropriate for ancient series, although Mainland is following their suits which makes me sad.

    Lately though, I do have to say that I prefer modern series---I'm just too sick of the 60th show about the Han Dynasty or Chu/Han etc etc. At least modern series have to make SOME effort to make an unique storyline and they can do so freely w/o worrying about butchering history.

    Korean ~ definitely modern is better considering the ugly costumes they have for ancient, though Dae Jang Geum was okay (I think it's overrated though).

    Ancients are only good when they have an engaging storyline. I don't like the ones that are just people sticking kung-fu in every single scene for stupid reasons.
    History repeats itself. Historians simply repeat each other.
