Many of us, yours truly included, started with the adaptation of wuxia before moving to the novels. I would not have any contact with wuxia if it werent for the adaptation.s But on the other hand, these adaptations (not only TVB) often do not do justice for the novels.
When I was younger, I loved the adaptations. But now Im into the novels, and I get more irretated by the adaptation than enjoying them.
Have I become a wuxia snob? Or did the novels ruin my enjoyment of the adaptation?
Should we ban adaptations? Or is it an easy way to introduce new generation to the wuxia world?
