    Default CHOR LAU HEUNG '84 (Michael Miu)

    Started the 1984 TVB adaptation THE NEW ADVENTURES OF CHOR LAU HEUNG tonight. Story is just getting underway, so not much to say about that yet, but Michael Miu is a worthy successor to Adam Cheng as the charismatic and dashing Chor Lau Heung. Oddly, Chor's three attendant ladies (Soo Yung Yung, Hung Ling Jau, Sung Teem Yee) seemingly have more to do, but also paradoxically lesser roles this time around compared to the 1979 adaptation. Additionally, Wu Teet Fa, so prominent in the 1979 adaptation, is nowhere to be seen yet and I believe he doesn't come in until considerably later.

    I think Michael Miu is a better looking CHOR LAU HEUNG than Adam Cheng.

    However, Adam Cheng is better overall for the character, plus his songs are mesmerizing.

    The first week so far has been kind of fun, but it's odd to start off with this inconsequential little story about conspiring to get two couples whose wulin families disapprove of their relationships together. Kind of a lightweight start, but I assume things get more involved later.

    Things finally began ramping up with Chor Lau Heung accused of committing murder with a snake-shaped sword that he's also been accused of stealing. Nothing new for him.

    Not sure why it took nearly a week of a fairly irrelevant ROMEO AND JULIET story to lead into it, though. The story could have started right here with a few adjustments. I doubt we're going to be seeing those other characters from the first four episodes again (half of them are dead). The first four were fun, but kind of pointless.

    Soo Yung Yung, Lee Hung Jau, and Sung Teem Yee really help Chor Lau Heung get stuff done in wulin as investigators and combat support. He doesn't just keep these girls around for their looks. His operations in wulin wouldn't go nearly as smoothly without their contributions, and in this version especially, Chor Lau Heung appears keen on allowing them to act independently and then capitalizing on the results of their groundwork.

    I'm really liking the girls in this adaptation...not only because they're easy on the eye, but because they're quite resourceful and helpful. Even without Chor Lau Heung present, the three girls are a force to reckon with. They're all like top-level operatives with great disguise, detective, and martial arts skills who set things up so that Chor Lau Heung can do his thing.
