    i dont read third edition, so i dont know and dont have my own conclusion.
    what i want to say that, the Dali kingdom also use Emperor hierarchy system and Duan Zhengmin did have a wife who was Empress back then.
    i just dont know about Duan Yu situation , in the first and second edition of novel, it was never stated that Duan Yu marry all his "sisters" , moreover who gets what title or rank in kingdom.

    so the best one to answer this question is someone who read third edition novel

    Someone did noted that MWQ, HL and Xiao Lei are called consorts. There is Chinese name (can't remember) for the consort ranks. Briefly, MWQ is first, HL is second and XL third.

    The latest series only ended with DY going to marry MWQ and HL.

    They had back lash when first trailer released. I think this series and return of condor heroes 2020 went back to edit the fight scenes so there isn't too much slow motion like what happened in heaven sword dragon Sabre 2019. Been wait for all these remak3s for a while.

    It's too soon that I can judge the series but an interesting matter
    I think this is second time that an actress plays both roles of Su Quan in the deer and cauldron and Kang min in the demi gods and semi devils
    1.Zhang Xinyu
    2.Zhu Zhu
    How cool ...

    It's just told in a very messy manner, special effects look 1980s-ish.

    I just watched the first few episodes.

    I dont get the hate.

    I actually like it.

    And the changes they made like introducing Xu Zhu early on were done in a tasteful manner. The additional Wang Jiantong bits also fit in well with the original novel.

    Oh, and bonus points for getting Ah Zi 1997 back as Ruan Xingzhu 2019.

    Extra bonus points for NOT using CGI dragons (so far) when XF does the Dragon Palms.
    Its BIxie Jianfa Gawdammit you guys!!!!

    Been years so long since I've posted on here. While I'm still glad the China still produces classic wuxia adaptations, I sadly say their good days were from '00 - 06. I just don't this trend of cinematography or color palette they like to use. Doesn't feel "authentic" to me. Don't get me started on the unnecessary use of terrible CGI.

    The 2014 version was down right trash.

    Watching these recent adaptations of the classic Jin Yong novels make me appreciate just how awesome the 1997 and 2003 versions were.

    So far I think it is quite watchable and follow the original story largely although the acting and wuxia elements are so-so. People are quite mad because of some unnecessary stupid thing they added especially to Duanyu line. but still better than 2013 although comparing to recent tv drama standards I don't think any breakout stars or performances will come out such as what happen to Legend of Condor Heroes 2017 and Heavenly Sword Dragon Sabre 2019.

    In short as of now I think from my perspective of best to worst:
    1. 2003 tied up with 1997
    2. 2021
    3. 2013
