    I thought Barbie was okee. Daniel ya is bad... kind of thought his starting role become supporting role...

    Jessica was awsome. Wu Jing, Yuen Wah and his wife were all very funny bunch

    There were some part that was draggy like the break up and make up between Barbie and Daniel and some of the storyline seems right out of other movies but I thought the series wasn't boring and it sucks you in.

    Sucks though the cantonese version doesn't use the real actors and actresses voices.

    Chinese Ghost Story series? Does this have any connection to the movie with Leslie Cheung?

    The theme songs sound like it was sung by him. The beginning is kind of the same, it has the same charactors but it branch off after that.

    the story involving the main characters is really really boring the drags on 4eva. but the supporting characters n subplots r interesting. personally, i fink da main characters should haf been nie yuan's qiye, jess's hong ye n wu jing's liu wun.

    I seriously think that the lead actor and actress were outshone by the supporting cast led by Jessica, Jason, Nie Yuan (of course!) and even those other guest like amy chan and apple hong..
    I watched it 5 times already..
    here's some pics from the episode (my favorite episode) Unrequited Love

    Hehe I got it from Yes Asia when it first came out kind of was really expensive But now I know it drop a bit.

    I was really suprise the packaging was pretty nice (better then the TVB packaging).

    Also when Jessica was possesed and turn her hair to white... this reminds me of the The Bride with White Hair...

    i agree. daniel chan was so lame in there. sometimes i just wanna slap him good on the face for being so stupid and pathetic. while everybody was racking his/her brains trying to save the planet, all he did was sitting there thinking about xiao qian. big s was not that impresssive either compared with her performance in meteor garden. i was really impressed with the performance rendered by jason wu on the other hand. really good chemistry between him and jess. nie yuan was very good too.

    Could it be the script that made Daniel's character so dislikeable. I mean Barbie (Big S) charactors at least don't give up as easily... but it seems for a minute, Daniel will say screw the world I am going to mate with this Fox... while in another minute, he has to be respectable and honor my mother's wises. Is like Daniel's charactor was two different person.

    There is a part I was kind of confused. I thought they married on the altar when Daniel was poison by The demon Black Mask, then he cough some blood and the Blue Demon Stone glow which means Barbie found true love from a human which save her from the grim reaper. Yet later on the story they have to marry again and weren't able to.

    yes, the script certainly didn't help. but i really had some serious doubts about his ability as an actor. absolutely no offence to his fans or himself.

    can't help you on your last one, james. cos it's been a while since i watched the series. im confused too. how many times did they try to get married.

    I never really saw Daniel act... I have some of his series that I haven't watch it. Feel 100% etc. I didn't mind him acting in movies. He was alright. The really werid thing is some scene he reminds me of Leslie.

    Anyone have that experience too?

    well, da costune's really familiar, so there is dat slight similarity. But dat guy seriously can't act. he might do alrite in modern series, but i dun fink he didn't really grasp his character. has any1 notice dat everytime he cries (more like try to), he covers his face wif his hands n u dun see any tears?

    he lookd like leslie because he copied his facial expression..that's why his acting looked so fake... Da S is really not suited for the damsel in distress type of role because you can see through her face that she's the type of girl who gets what she wants...she does not have the tragic look..

    Kind of like the charactor in Meteor Garden... but I thought that was needed with the way Daniel swinging back and forth with the relationships.... someone got to hold the pants on that relationship

    Btw did the script writer and producer add lots of the story themselves or was this based on some book?

    the script writer used the beginning of the original story and made the rest up himself. Some of the plots were actually made up while they were filming and the actors all had a say in the plot. For the ending, nearly everyone wanted their character to die

    Daniel sang all the theme songs in the series. And Sugar, haven't seen you in the Nie Yuan thread for a long, long time. Come to the thread, it's not as dead as it used to be
