TVB has been around for 40 years now and some of the older shows haven't aged well at all. Although I do prefer longer shows that go into character development, some of the 70s shows that were over 100 episodes were way too long. Now which series do you think aged well?
My 2 picks are The Bund and Duke of Mount Deer 83. The Bund was only a 25 episode series, so the pacing is quite good for today's standards. In those 25 episodes, you get excellent character development. Storyline was great and acting was brilliant. What I liked a lot was that the love story was not campy like most shows these days. None of that "Oh I like you" crap. The love story was very believable and Man Keung using his body language to make himself attractive to Ching Ching.
DOMD is great even till now is because it's not based on crazy fights and special effects. It's main selling point is the comedy and Tony Leung pulls that off easily. The show was 40 episodes which is considered a long show today. It was paced really well and you really felt like you knew Wai Siu Bo.
