    I think ATV is not that bad but their ratings are very different than tvb.

    I've never liked ATV, nor have I ever had the patience to sit through a whole series....

    Personally, I don't know why I don't like ATV but it just seems to me that its a little too gloomy heh

    btw its site is http://www.hkatv.com

    THe thing i don't like ATV serie is their script so bad..

    Can they change their script to something like TVB? Czu ATV in most serie (expecially modern serie) their script talk so much garbage, and doesn't make sense, and really outdate. HK ppl doesn't talk that way... Althought i'm not from HK but i know alot of friend agree with me..

    But other times they just have a trailor

    I think that is a cool step for them to be different then TVB.
    yup, they have the complete The Good Old Days as well as MDWAV available online, and they also have clips of their shows, I always d/l the ones where the ATV artists talk about themselves because they will include clips of the ATV series they did (and it might even contain spoilers to series such as Light of Million Hope)

    I also d/led the complete ATV 2003 Anniversary and the Chinese TV Commercial Awards from their site too

    Yup the quality is not great but is free. Also they don't tell people when they are posting free boardcasting... so this is like a marketing gimmic for us to go visit the site often.

    actually if you know how to d/l the links, the quality of the clips are pretty good, cuz they're mostly encoded in 300kb bitrate

    use the program HiNet Recorder to d/l the ATV 2003 Anniversary held on May 29th 2003:

    there's a total of 8 parts:
    mms://media01.hkatv.com/atv_birthday/529-01.asf
    mms://media01.hkatv.com/atv_birthday/529-02.asf
    mms://media01.hkatv.com/atv_birthday/529-03.asf
    mms://media01.hkatv.com/atv_birthday/529-04.asf
    mms://media01.hkatv.com/atv_birthday/529-05.asf
    mms://media01.hkatv.com/atv_birthday/529-06.asf
    mms://media01.hkatv.com/atv_birthday/529-07.asf
    mms://media01.hkatv.com/atv_birthday/529-08.asf

    each clip is 10-12min and each file when d/led is roughly +/- 30mb

    i give ATV credit for being creative- some of their series are really good in terms of plot, instead of the rehashed crap TVB has been spoon feeding everyone lately.

    i really love coincidentally- it was creative, fun to watch, and very well acted. the mamasan of the brothel in particular is a very fine actress.

    my date with a vampire 1&2 are also very creative- i can't think of anything TVB has created that was that imaginitive.

    as far as the quality goes- its the distributers fault mostly for the audio and video problems.

    tvb humor isn't my fortay-

    take a look at Vampire Expert 2 and you can note how well the dialogue is written

    Yeah, I agree that ATV's storyline usually didn't follow a fix storyline like TVB. Like Project Ji Xiang. The way they reveal what happened in the past to the viewers is so unusual. This is the first time I see a motive review like this. The usual way of revealing the motive is the criminal recounting it to someone else or the investigator reveal his deduction of the crime. Also, Project Ji Xiang can't really be categorize in any category. It is a detective series, with supernatural element and and human drama all in one.
