    Yeah, I felt using Steve Ma ruined both 'the Smiling proud wanderer' and 'the 8 immortals', both epic productions for Channel 8. He overacted and as if his custumes and hairstyles weren't weird enough, his frequent brushing of his nose perhaps to show a carefree attitude really put me off.

    I think it was just in the middle. Maybe its just me, but would have soooo perfered someone else to take on the role that Steve got I think everyone else did really well. OMG, you know who annoyed me soooo much besides Steve? Phylis.....argh, its not her, but its her character!!! For goodness sakes already, at first she is all like tempery with Steve and then later she is sorta clingish to him.

    I've NEVER hated any actors, I may hate actresses, but NONE of the actors really gets under my skin. Until the day I know.... STEVE MA and RICHIE REN.

    They *really* gets on my nerves.

    I know! Steve is exaggerating with his silly attempts of looking sad or carefree while Richie is... I guess everyone knows! ARGH!

    I have an idea the local TV station got him for the role because of his fame though god knows how he earned it. His acting skills?

    Yups, you should watch this seires, but get the remote ready cause there will be some parts you will not be able to stand!!! Basically the beginning of the story talked about how the 8 immortals where beginning to form and why they wanted to form it. Then it goes on talking about the story of how each immortal's life is and how they become a god/goddess. Next it goes on talking about how the immortals will fight against this evil force, but afterwards when they kill that evil guy another one rises. So they pull together in the end and kill him. You can go read the reviews for the series and there are some links that you can go to for pics and maybe even info.

    Got his fame becoz of all the sappy, drama-mama Qiong Yao productions in the 80s.

    I was re-watching this series a few days ago and I don't like the dubbing for Yvonne's character. Her character of Princess LongGon. (is that right?) Well it was a bit high pitched, but still okay I guess. Hehe, doesn't she look cute with Vincent? I loved him when he turned himself into a human form instead of being the "shadow" of the Monkey King.

    Yup she is soooo sweet and there is this bubbly arua around her dont' you think? You know what I was rather amused at in the end? How after Yvonne and Vincent got together, they had 8 kids which represented each of the 8 immortals. It was rather amusing seeing the "younger" versions of the immortal in ways, hehe

    I don't like this show. Too draggy, and it isn't the Legend of 8 Immortals at all. It is just using the 8 Immortals' names in a unrelated draggy story.

    You are so right siryu!!!!! He Xian Gu was really interesting and likable, unlike Mudan. Gosh, everytime she appeared onscreen I either felt like strangling her or slapping her. Either one was good for me She caused so much trouble and all though. I thought the whole relationship with Steve and her were boring
