I agree with the review in general; I think TVB had something special until they blew it at the end. If you're somewhat versed in Chinese history and literature, Hong Kong style cantonese w/ the slangs and oblique references, then you'll really enjoy the wittiness of the script and dialog. I decided to rewatch this series because the recent TVB series are all rehashes of old ideas w/ no originality (eg. the same producer's 'Heart of Greed'), and I'm still marveled at the drama's great story telling, comedic timing, pacing, editing, and acting.
