    The best part about this series is Bobby's character Pang Sir. I've never seen a protagonist that's so self-centered, unreasonable, inconsiderate and insensitive. Enough with the I'm an all around good guy type. Every lady will hate this guy, even though I'm a guy, I don't find him very likable. but he definitely adds flavor to the show, and makes it more interesting.

    best scene, when Pang Sir (Bobby) said to Kit (Kenix) after he came back from the airport, "Ah Chung (Moses) wasn't like this before. if you treated him a little better, then he would not have cheated on you. and he wouldn't have gotten together with my wife. that's why this entire mess, you have to claim the majority of the responsibility." Even though, he was the one that's not attentive enough to his wife's needs, he still tried to blame other people for the problem, claiming, "I'm not wrong. I was never wrong. Tell me where I'm wrong!"

    I just looked at the Trailer. It looks very interesting. I can't wait to see it!

    Is there a love triangle with Ellesmere, Annie and Julian? Who is that girl Ellesmere getting married to in the trailer?

    Here is the rest of the long synop...
    If you have any particular questions, I will try and answer based on the ep by eps but I won't be translating them all I'm afraid - it is just too much work for me at the moment.
    <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

    TVB site synopsis continuation

    In actual fact, Kwong knows his own problems, his wealthy background is an unreal situation because his own father died early and when his mother remarried into the Yeung family, he followed her there to become an outsider and has never been accepted into the family. For the sake of his mother, Kwong is prepared to put up with this treatment and has learned to be humble to make people happy and for the sake of harmony and has created an optimistic attitude. After so long, Kwong does everything with the aim of being finding pleasure and is happy-go-lucky with no aims in life, this application was just as Tung had said, not really because he wanted to become a negotiator. During his training, Kwong meets Ho Yan and finds himself attracted to her, he tries all he can to gain her affections, but she still will not accept his advances, making Kwong very perplexed. However, it is not that she doesn't have any good feelings towards the sincere and positive Kwong, but the fact that ever since she was very young, she has been affected by the pain caused by the departure of her father, who left her to repay his debts and undertake the task of looking after her family and so is concerned by the aimless attitude and lack of responsibility shown by Kwong. She wishes to find someone who is ambitious and responsible who can look after her for the rest of her life. Yan hopes that she can quickly be promoted and give her family a better life so she works exceedingly hard and she strives for achievement during the training, gaining the praise of Tung. However, Kwong can only talk about his strengths, but cannot master the skills and his performance compared to Yan's is hugely different.

    In the specialist team, there is another experienced negotiator Kan Kit who has a sixth sense and feels that the potential in Kwong is great and can be developed. Kit was originally a noted Superintendant in the Special Deployment Unit with a strong, hard approach. Due to the early death of her mother, she has attached a special value to life and with her keen observation, she can see that Kwong has talent and enthusiasm and not only does she patiently guide him, she also has a wager with Tung that Kwong will one day become a success. Although Tung and Kit are a dream team within the unit and on a personal note Tung and Kit's husband Mok Ka Chung are good friends, their personalities are at extremes and Tung is unhappy at Kit's highly feminist beliefs, conversely Kit is totally against Tung's chauvinism and because of this, the two do not get on with each other at all. Kit's words unfortunately come true and on one mission, Ho Yan witnesses a suicidal person jumping to a tragic death and develops severe post-traumatic syndrome. Yeung Hau Mo is Kwong's stepfather's youngest son and is also the Police Force Psychotherapist, out of all the Yeung brothers he has the strongest bond with Kwong, Kwong tells Mo that he must cure Yan, no matter what it takes, however he unintentionally draws the two together.

    Kwong wants to withdraw from the negotiation career, but on one mission, he spots an important point which Tung has missed and based on his perserverance and drive, he prevents another tragedy from occuring. After this battle, Kwong finally realises that this work is full of rewards and retracts his original decision, starting to put effort into learning his skill to becoming a successful negotiator. Not only is Tung disappointed in his working life, he also meets with troubles in his marriage. Due to his over-indulgence in his work, he has been neglecting his wife Poon Man Jing and finally, she files for divorce.

    Kit has witnessed the pain that her own mother went through at the mercy of male chauvinists and went out to choose a partner who respects her, however as hard as she has looked, she is still met wit disappointment, just at this time, Kit finds that she is pregnant. With a failed marriage, she is unable to make a decision whether or not to bring this new life into the world. At the same time, Tung is also faced with problems and due to his injury, Tung is forced to withdraw from his Criminal Investigation work and hide away to nurse his wounds, it is then that Tung realises how unhappy his family had been with his control and that he finally agrees that Yeung Kwong's scolding words were not incorrect. When life falls rock bottom and he is unable to face with his own failures, his confidence fails as he pulls out of negotiation and also has no intention to heal his wounded leg, allowing himself to become disabled. Kit and Kwong feel very sorry for Tung and against all his protests, Kwong uses all the skills he has learned as a negotiator against him, hoping that he can wake his determination once again. At this time, Mo and his former girlfriend rekindle their love and Yan is left devastated, Kwong is there by her side to comfort her and he thinks that his hard work will change her mind about him, but Yan's doubts about him are still present and she can still not let go of Mo, when he turns his affections back to her again, she heads straight back to him and even accepts his proposal, leaving Kwong totally destroyed...

    I don't quite understand this part. So Tung(Bobby Au Yeung) is attracted to Ho Yan(Annie)? Or Is Kwong (Julian) attracted to Ho Yan(Annie)?

    So for spoilers...does Julian end up with Annie or not?

    Man it's great to see Julian in a modern cop series again....

    her name is Yeung Yeun Yee, tripple Y as I call her. Just like you I hate her.

    Hated her since her first appearance in A Kindred Spirit, puked at her in DIF. And this series makes me even dislike her more. No improvement in what? 10 years?

You know her face reminds me of a chipmunk and her roles are so bleh.... <IMG SRC="smilies/angrystick.gif" border="0"> She's also in that other new series with Nick Cheung and Maggie Cheung HY. You call her Triple Y? Haha..Should be WhY Why why! Starr her in any series at all! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

    ice_cream: She played the girl who was Nadia's co-worker, who was sorta fighting Claire Yu for Michael Tong. Michael Tong saved her from her weirdo boyfriend, who went after her with a razorblade. So after that...she kept dreaming of getting Michael Tong. Remember?
