Okay, I've watched up to episode 20. Somehow, I was under the impression that this was a 20 episode series, but I was wrong. I guess I've been watching too many K-dramas. But for a fact, it has 28 episodes. Now that Yeung Chi San and his sister has been defeated. The main villain surfaces as the new left chancellor.
I don't know what you guys think but the King Makers series just got more ridiculous from episode 19 onwards. There was a lot of things in episode 20 that you really, really have to stretch your belief. The fighting scenes were mediocre and sloppy. I mean Yim Sam Leung had twin sabres, but there were hundreds of arrows flying at them and she was slowly deflecting them? She's not Cheung 3 Fung. The whole execution of how Hung Ying finds out and becomes confused by her true identity as Yu Jing is so FORCED. I think TVB writers really did not know how to write her character and Natalie just did poorly at portraying "I just found out that my dad is really not my dad and the man I've had a crush on is really my long lost older brother, who I thought was my family's enemy" part.
And really, I don't think because Kent Cheng's expressions are hard to read make him a good dubious villain. I really think given a better actor, say Lau Kong or maybe even Paul Chun or perhaps David Chiang would have been a better choice to play such a role.
I still cannot get get over the fact that the Yu Ching of 10 years prior looks more like Jing and Tsing's dad and Cheung KK looked like the grandfather instead. I really think Wayne, despite his acting skills, should not have taken this role.
I'm sorry if I'm complaining too much, but I gotta critique and TVB is still making poor choices.
