There's about 15-16 cases in all. I think ATV's Justice Pao is slightly better than TVB's Justice Pao, although both came out in the same year(1995). The characters, substories and cases are interesting and exciting, not quite predictable as TVB's Justice Pao. Yes, its more suspenseful, ATV did pretty well. They had a mixture of taiwanese and hk actors and actresses acting in this series. I like it a lot!
Plus, I think Ray Lui's Zhan Zhao has more human like emotions than Felix Wong's, Felix's just seem too heroic and we just don't know him personally as Ray's.
I watched almost all the cases in this series except some are missing and I'm currently watching the case with Steve Ma Jing Tao. I looked on ebay for this series and it seems the cases are out of order, I know because Erica Choi's character likes ZZ it happens later and Erica Choi's foster father becomes the imperial sorcerer also later on in the series, so Steve Ma's case couldn't be the first case. Anyone else watched this series?
Here's the poster for his case:
