    Default TVB and ATV series under Taiwan?

    Why are Chor Lau Heung 2001, The Duke of Mount Deer 2000, and The Monkey King- Quest For The Sutra under Taiwan when the box cover writes TVBI?

    Also, why are Treasure Venture and The Legend of The Condor Lovers under Taiwan when the box cover writes ATV?

    Chor Lau Heung 2001, The Duke of Mount Deer 2000, and The Monkey King- Quest For The Sutra are all Taiwan productions, just that TVB bought the rights to broadcast them on their station.

    Same case for ATV.

    Is really hard to define which is TVB and which is ATV etc.... with today's market... actors jump ship all the time.

    I remember able to associate actors with the company they work for... now you can't

    Default ATV, TVB, CTS

    Many period dramas starring Hong Kong and Taiwan actors are now filmed on location in China because of its yet unspoilt backdrops suitable for such productions.

    My favourite is CTS (Taiwan) for its epic productions on "Bao Qing Tian". ATV's version of "Baogong chu cai" cannot be compared to the original Taiwan production because it had been given a light-hearted touch to it.

    In comparison, TVB productions score better than ATV in terms of colour, sound and dubbing. For dramas in Mandarin, I'd choose CTS, for cantonese, I'd choose TVB and Hokkien, I'd choose FTV.

    if TVB or ATV put in the money to produce the show, then it's a TVB or ATV production. not all that difficult you see.
    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?

    Yeah that is true. Some productions now look like other productions.

    They probably don't got any ideas so that's why they're purchasing Taiwanese series.

    It doesn't matter to us which station it is broadcasted at. If it's made by a Taiwanese production company and broadcasted on TVB, then it is under Taiwanese series.
