    Question What's the top 10 best acted TVB series?

    What do you think are the top 10 best acted TVB series?

    This is not about how good the storyline or how excellent the production was but how good the acting was.

    1) Wong Kum Sap Nin (Turbulent Decade, I think), starring Eddie Cheung, Jamie Chik, Carina Lau, Dicky Cheung, Margie Tsang

    2) Police Cadet

    3) Chor Lau Heung (the 70s version) starring Adam Cheng, Teresa Zhao, Lisa Wang, Kwan Chung, Cecelia Wong, Koo Miu Tse and Liu Onn Lai

    4) Luk Siu Fung (also 70s) starring Damian Lau, Wong Yin San, Wong Yan Choi

    5) LOCH 83

    6) Geng Fa Chut Gang (80s, about a woman police corps unit) starring Dodo Cheng

    7) Feud of the brothers starring Alex Man and Lawrence Ng (and to this day my father still refers to Lawrence as 'that bl**dy Wilson') =)

    8) Duke of Mount Deer starring Tony Leung, Andy Lau, Chau Sau Lan, Mitra King, Carina Lau, Teresa Mo

    9) 13 Sister starring Cecelia Wong, Maggie Lee, Simon Yam

    10) Cold Blood, Warm Heart starring Adam Cheng, Poon Chi Man, Waisie Lee, Louis Koo, Nadia Chan (this show was not as good as some other 80s series, but it stood out so beautifully among the other series released by TVB in the 90s that it deserved a mention).


    These series were also special because they did not rely on any single star's great performance, but an amazing all-round contribution from all the cast, and some beautiful chemistry between characters and good character development (apart from LSF, in which the characters never developed, but was still amazingly great fun nonetheless).

    Best acted...in my opinion with a MAJORITY of the cast doing a good job (can't ask for the whole cast to be good actors, after all ). In random order...

    1) Golden Faith (as stupid as the plot was)
    2) Secret of the Heart
    3) Cold Blood Warm Heart
    4) Files of Justice V
    5) Burning Flame 1
    6) Reaching Out
    7) Heaven Sword Dragon Sabre 2000 (as stupid as the plot was)
    8) Legend of the Condor Heroes '95 (with Louis Koo and Carman Lee)
    9) The Legendary Four Aces
    10) At the Threshold of an Era 1

    too lazy to make a whole list, but I'd pick "Looking Back in Anger" to top that list. Felix, Carina and Deric were all amazing. Kathy Chow sucked, but oh well, she was never good anyway. As much as I like "Greed of Man" as a show, unfortunately acting wasn't good all around. Amy Kwok in particular just sucks. queen of overacting in that show.

    It means you got eyes like apostrophes, you dress white, talk black, and drive Jew. So how am I supposed to know what kind of zipperhead dog-munching dink you are if you don't?
