I was hesitating if I should write a review on this drama. Some parts were good but some parts were boring.
I thought Michael Tse and Tavia Yeung was a funny and lovely couple at the beginning. The hugging contest was so cute. They met an old couple who hugged each other to give hope for their grandson with disabilities. After Tavia broke up with Michael. I realized that Tavia always hide her feelings and wouldn’t step up. She assumes a lot. It’s funny when she mistaken Michael having and affair with Grace when Grace was trying to find her earrings. I like how Michael and Tavia can fairly collaborate as lawyers after they broke up. They didn’t let their feelings affecting their cases. They still love each other but wouldn’t tell each other. The cancer part of Tavia didn’t play that much of a role in the series except for the excuse that Tavia breaks up with Michael.
Some noteable performance in this drama was Sammy Leung and Alice Chan.
I first saw Alice Chan in ATV The Snow is Red 1997, and she looks prettier and was a bit more chubby back then. Now Alice is still pretty but looks skinnier and her face looks similar to Sheren Tang or Kenix Kwok to me. Her villain character on the final case stood for me. She never fall in love with a guy before. It’s either she’s picky or no one dare to be with her. Her first love is Derek Kwok. Derek Kwok is an outstanding lawyer but he got beaten by Alice. Love can be blind.
This series is the first time I’ve seen the host Sammy Leung in. He’s looking hot. Not bad for his first time acting. He’s so funny when he courted Sharon. Sharon was like “Have you ever court or kissed a girl before?” I like Sammy and Sharon together but I thought it was kinda rushed how Sharon admit liking Sammy. Thought they should have give more time to show Sharon starts to like Sammy. I did enjoyed their scenes together and how they send each other stuff since Sharon lives next to Sammy.
Sharon looks pretty in this drama. I think the first time I thought Sharon was pretty was in Catch Me Now.
Nice to see Samantha Ko again after Last Steep Ascent. Her character is totally different. I’m impressed how Samantha was calm during her trial and after being raped by Alice’s brother. Oscar Leung likes Samantha Ko but scared to date her because he doesn’t want her to think that he dates her out of pity. It was cute how Oscar helped Samantha during the rain after the rape case. It was also cute how the trainees sung a song to encourage Samantha.
Louis Yuen and Grace Wong plays a comedic couple. At first Louis wants to court Grace to prevent her being the third party between Tavia and Michael but he ends up falling for her.
Some of the cases are mini and some of the cases are big. The cases give the perspective that sometimes you have to go out of your way to win. It made us think if it is right to follow the law. Patrick Tang put gun and drugs in Sammy Sum’s room. Michael Tse bribed a witness to lie that he saw Alice Chan crashed Ben. They know that it is true but don’t have the evidence. In the final case Michael Tse and Sammy Leung gave Alice a scare since she killed his dad.
Some scenes I find ridiculous or lame is when Sharon pulled Sammy’s pants off. I thought that was kinda cliche. There’s also pulling pants off of Kevin Cheng in Ghetto Justice 2 or Kenneth Ma in Man in Charge. The other scene I find it lame is when people laughed at Sammy and Sharon for showing their underpants when they got soaked.
It also showed some sexual scene like when Michael and Tavia took each other’s clothes out. Oscar Leung looks at Samantha’s long legs. Alice Chan kissed Derek.
The bike and car chasing scene between Alice and Ben was ridiculous. How could Ben still get up and ride his bike home. I kinda laughed when Ben returned home all bloodied.
The ending was sweet where everyone gets together. Michael told Sammy to fight for his happiness and find Sharon.
Rate: I would rate 3.5 out of 5 stars for the spectacular performance from the casts but some of the cases are irrelevant and some scenes are unrealistic. It is a good series to watch but not a must watch.
