    I think the more interesting thing is the difference in generation preference with Felix being a predominantly 1997 and before lover with the exception of Gods of Honor and Angel being around 2000 and after with the exception of Remembrance. LOL.

    I also get the feeling that this is happening.

    Felix: What, TVB after 2000, never heard of it, does it exist?

    Twinsangelkiki: What, TVB before 1997, never heard of it, does it exist?

    Not to say I don't like any TVB series after 1997, just that if compared to the rest, my list is too long, just so happens none of the new series make it to my top 25.

    I will try to have it span over a greater time period. I will look at its iconic status in time as well as how good the storyline was. So no run of the mill things (hopefully)


    1) Man in the Net
    2) Can't remember name (Wong Gam Sap Nin. a lot of stars. )
    3) War and Beauty
    4) Square Pegs
    5) War of In Laws
    6) Greed of Man
    7) Police Cadet
    8) Cold Blood Warm Heart
    9) LOCH and ROCH (1980s version. I consider them as one)
    10) Country Spirit and Plain Love (again, the same kind of show. Plain Love came first but I prefer Country Spirit)
    11) Detective Investigation Files
    12) Healing Hands
    13) Chor Lau Heung (Adam Cheng)
    14) War of Genders
    15) The Challenge of Life
    16) Looking Back in Anger
    17) The Shell Game
    18 ) Yesterday's Glitter
    19) The Breaking Point
    20) Blood of Good and Evil

    Sigh. I think I can only come up with 20. Probably cos I dun have the best memory anyway.

    Great choice. One of my fav. series of all time as well.

    25 is such a big number. I'm still trying to formulate my list.
    How come most 江湖 (jiāngh) wanderers never worry about money? I wonder how a 大俠 (dxi) make a living...does meddling in people's business and righting wrongs pay well?

    I'll see if I can reach anywhere near 25 and still maintain any kind of standard...

    In no particular order

    Duke of Mount Deer 1984
    One Sword 1979
    Cold Blood Warm Heart 1995
    Recipe for the Heart 1997
    Legend of the Condor Heroes 1994
    Legend of the Condor Heroes 1982
    Return of the Condor Heroes 1995
    State of Divinity 1996
    Luk Siu Fung 1976
    Legal Entanglement 2001
    Heaven Sword Dragon Sabre 1986
    All About Tin 19.. um... 90?
    Eternal Happiness 2002
    The Romantic Swordsman 1978

    There was also this series about female police cadets.. in Cantonese "Geng Fa Chut Gang", with a beautiful themesong sang by Anita Mui. Not sure what the English title was, or what year it was, but I remember being extremely sad that it was over. I think it had Dodo Cheng in it.. can't even remember anything about it other than it was extremely enjoyable.

    That's 15, which I think is already quite a lot! There's lots of other good ones out there, but these 15 I'd gladly watch over and over again.
