Yes I laughed when I saw the pictures of the first series, the cast looked so young... oh well that's becasue they were young
I watched the first 2 series faithfully, followed every single episode and was totally into the story. The third installation bothered me alot. Cos I think its a pathetic attempt by Mediacorp to chalk up ratings by banking in on the success of the first 2. The 3rd series had a bad story, bad acting, bad cast and too many (lousy) computer effects.
And yes, i hated the son too, he was irritating, annoying, stupid, lazy and boring. I hated both version of the son. Ugh. Eh, i did not quite make it through the 3rd series, just watch snippets of it when i channel surf.
