Ok first thngs first - this was a great series and I agree with GOH that I prefer this one over Colorful Life although CL was much funnier but one of those TVB ghetto-ness that I don't like sometimes and the fact the family is so fake-y until near the end. But this one is somewhat mostly focuses on Frankie and Annie and it always link back to their story. I agree that Kristy's character is kind of annoying in here but I don't think that Kristy's character is annoying in Snow Is Red. I love her in there although wrong choice to chose the guy - but maybe 'cause he has a kind heart? Lame reason but still. Other than that, I hate him in the series but he wasn't that lame or stupid or useless in the novel by Ngoa Long Sinh (not sure how to translate that to Pin Yin). He character is not the best but a lot more likeable in the novel. Don't want to get too side-track but last point: Kwok Jing (Quach Tinh) is no where near Andrew Yuen's character since he's a lot more useful and although too stubborn sometimes on his policy and beliefs but at least he does pick the right girl! (lol)
Ok, almost forgot and sorry that getting way off topic now but comparing to several of Kristy's role (since I didn't watch them all), I recently watched MDWAV I-III again and thought her roles in the first 2 wasn't that annoying. I thought she's worst in Coincidentally. It's just that most of us wants Eric & Joey to be together that we hate her or thinks that she's annoying.
Getting back to the topic:
Recommend this series to anyone.
