    Isn't the one with Steven Ma and the goddess who reincarnated many time? A lot sad part but it's still a good serie. The ending is kidda sad and happy. I like this serie and Steven Ma was so smexy back than. Same like his look from Justice Bao ATV before.

    The question is: did MD was really in love with LDB or with love itself? My impression is of the latter. Essentially, MD is using love as a form of escapism and rebellion.

    As an aside, why deities are portrayed as leading uneventful, boring, dictatorial lives is beyond me. Especially when 'human love' is more or less seen as the antidote to all these woes.

    All MD's angst and focus is on reciprocation. If that all there is to love - considering we have just entered 'Valentine's Day' today - that's pretty 1-D.

    And LDB...he is Daoist no? He felt the need to make something of himself by 'doing'. Considering his philosophy is based on 'doing' through a passive state (loosely interpreted as dynamic equilibrium methinks), the justification of his cause and actions seemed...illogical to say the least.

    This series was fairly pretty, Steven Ma was undoubtedly suave, unfortunately ruined by a weak plot.

    I loved this show. The cast, the scenery, the outfits, they were all so beautiful. Steve was total eye candy in white with the long hair. The ladies were pretty.

    One thing I couldn't figure out was, were Steve and Jacelyn suppose to have a thing for each other or not? At times, they'll give each other those looks, but as the show goes on, those looks doesn't progresses.

    Anyway, I doubt it, but does anyone know where I can buy a copy of this show?

    This is a relatively old show, so I agree that it's doubtful that you can find a copy in stores today.

    I did watch this series on TV then. Must be ages. I can't remember Steve Ma. But I can remember Jaclyn Tay acting.

    Steve Ma was Lü Dongbin, the lead role. I'm a little surprised you remember this series but don't remember him.

    He followed up this role with another Singapore collaboration in The Legendary Swordsman《笑傲江湖》.

    Jaclyn Tay was He Xiangu. Maybe you remember that.

    I have to admit that I remember little about the story, though.

    I mainly like the theme song.

    Can't remember Steve Ma acting as Lu Dongbin :-0. Yes, can remember Jaclyn as He Xiangu. Checking my memory, I can remember two other things:
    1. Cripple = Can't remember who act. But he woke up and realized he is crippled.
    2. The Eight Immortals sitting on a big "turtle" crossing the river.

    OT: Yes, can remember Steve Ma as Linghu Chong and Jaclyn as DFBB. Indeed, that's the only Swordsman series I have watched to-date.

    The cripple would have been Tieguai Li, played by Lin Yisheng.
