    Default Searching For ATV Series

    Hi,

    I'm trying to identify and find these series:

    ATV, 1994 (or possibly 1996)
    Beauty Pageant - 鳳凰傳說
    30 episodes
    Cantonese

    With: Annie Man, Nich Cheung etc...



    ______________

    This is probably a long shot, but I'm hoping to spark somebody's memory:

    Very old series, probably around 10 +/- years, and therefore probably ATV

    I am looking for a serie about Bruce Lee's life. All I remember vaguely, is that it was a serie, it was about Bruce Lee or some other guy who fought with the same weapon as he did (the chain thing-y, he was famous for?), and that he had a bad relationship with his father, ?

    The second serie, I am looking that I also unfortunately remember very little about: a serie about a woman who's disguises herself by night and kill (bad?) people. By day, she a innocent-ish woman. Her disguise was a a black turtlenech shirt, a beige trenchcoat and possibly a mask? (Not Old Time Buddy - to Catch a Thief.) Wasn't comedy but more like drama?

    For all the series, I don't mind if it's torrent or DD. For the last two, I would even be grateful for just a name.

    Hmm...I don't remember a series about Bruce Lee's life. But something close to it, starring Donnie Yen is Fist of Fury,which I think Bruce Lee did play the same role as Chen Zhen, who is Huo Yuan Jia's student. The series focuses on Chen Zhen as a main character.

    Is this a remake of the 1982 version starring Bruce Leung? Is the story the same, or is the story closer to the Jet Li Fist of Fury movie?

    Sorry, I don't know about 1982 version. There are some scenes that was in the Jet Li version and it was in this series as well. I think this series was done with a historical focus but I have no doubt there are some fictional artistic changes to the story. It was a good series, just didn't like Chen Zhen's end.

    Too be honest, I can't tell. But my memory fuzzily tells me that it was a modern serie, modern for that time anyways. The one you're suggesting seems older.

    Also, I don't think Bruce Lee was actually in it.

    I remember that the main character ( maybe the fictional Bruce Lee),, had a bad relationship with his father through man years, but they reconciled and the son carried his father on his back - because he was sick, or weak or something. And the father also died later.

    The main character also married and had children, I believe. It actually needn't be about Bruce Lee anyways, but the main character fought with the same weapon which is why I have always associated it with BL.

    The one I'm suggesting was only made in the 90s, I'd say about 1995 or 1996.

    Can you be more specific about the time setting and the details that you remember about the serials you're looking for?

    Actually, there was a series made about Bruce Lee by ATV that came out in 1995/1996 called Spirit of The Dragon. I recall the poster having the main character dressed as Bruce in a yellow suit with nunchukus. Hope that helps.

    ATV did make a series in the early 1990s about the life of Bruce Lee called 'Spirit of the Dragon' starring David Wu as Bruce Lee, and Lau Kar Leung as Bruce's dad

    Is this the one you are talking about?

    Not a remake but just a longer TV version of the old Fist of Fury/Legend movies. The 1982 ATV Legendary Fok was mainly about Fok Yuen Gaap (Wong Yuen Sun) while the ATV 1995 Fist of Fury is about his student Chen Jun. The Donnie Yen Chen Jun has a different background to the Chen Jun played by Bruce Leung though.

    Speaking of the 1995 Fist of Fury with Donnie Yen, I just finished watching it with my dad today. Even though the fights are way under-cranked and Donnie Yen's acting is really bad at times, the series itself is excellent. The acting is really good and the transformation of Chen Jun from a naive country bumpkin to a philosophical patriot is believable due to the strong cast around Donnie Yen. Definitely recommended.

    It's very possible that this is the serie that I'm remembering. Thanks for the help, if anybody else know more, I would still like to hear from you.

    Does the other serie spark any memory for anyone?
