Since the year of 2010, I have not really enjoyed any series, so I honestly did not expect much from Fist's storyline. To my surprise though, I've grown to love the series very much. It definitely resembles Moonlight Resonance, as I've stated before, but in my opinion, exceeded MR.
This series have made me love Natalie more and more! I applause tvb for giving her this role because she truly shined during the whole series. Her character went through alot of misfortunes. She was abandoned as a kid and was taken in by Tavia Yeung.
The series began to focus more on her in episode 7 and onwards. Natalie's always the obedient kid in the family and everybody seems to love her, but in my opinion, also the kid who suffered the most. I was scared for her every time Eric stalked her, and was really afraid that she won't be able to stand up again after she got raped. It was extremely emotional for me when she walked out into the crowd (because of Kenneth), and decided to stand up against Dominic and Eric. I was proud of her character and looked forward to how her character's going to handle it.
I really wish that tvb is going to begin to promote Natalie.......and an award this year? Most Improved would be the category I'd nominate her in ;)
Memorable Scenes of her..........
*Her holding onto the rope of the boat to prevent Kevin from leaving.
*She saying good-bye to everyone in the family before she hanged herself.
*The scene in the hospital where she told everyone what happened to her.
*The scene where she stepped out into the crowd and told her that she won't let Eric go free.
*When Kevin went up on stage to fight, she was afraid that he'll get hurt and only hide behind the wall.
*In the last episode when she was finally rescued. Everybody surrounded her and wanted to feed her. Haha, that part was so cute xD
This guy had the wit and smile that makes everybody love and respect him. Kenneth was the perfect guy to play the role of Ah Tong. He surprised me every time he manages to solve a problem in just a split second. I'm proud of tvb for presenting this character to us. It's been quite a while since I've fell in love with a character^ He's always the guy who you can trust upon and is always there when you need him. Just like Natalie and Selena =D
His charming attitude towards Selena was adorable and I really hoped for them to have more screen time. I really like the way how their relationship develop. Kenneth just started of as a simple patient that Selena found annoying, but as he began to bother her more and more, their friendship began to develop.
I was really happy that they still remained as friends even though their family were enemies. They were both there for each other when something happens. I find that even though they both have different opinions, they still grew closer and closer rather then growing apart =)
I'm glad that her doctor character didn't follow Linda Chung's footsteps in MR. Her character is much stronger. Already stated above, she and Kenneth was super adorable together! As Dominic's daughter, alot of pressure was on her. Luckily, there was Kenneth there to lend her a shoulder. I was a bit surprise when she wanted to jump of the cliff but luckily she thought it through.
Hehe....the last scene of Kenneth and Selena was so cute! I thought (Kenneth also thought the same....) that Selena was going to kiss him but she just said his mouth stinks :P Lols that was adorable. Poor Kenneth :P
Much lesser screentime then I even expected. Of course I didn't really mind that cause Kenneth got more screentime because of that =) I think that Kevin had improved in here since he was in Beyond. His character isn't the most interesting but it was decent. I find that he really cares for Natalie and was happy that he didn't end up with Nancy.
I absolutely loved her in here! She's a wonderful actress, espeacially her in her crying scenes. She's a caring mother who only wants the best for her children and she really loves Dominic too. I could tell she's a kind-hearted person but only did bad things because of Dominic. I felt extremely sorry for her when he decided to send her to the mental hospital.
After that, I wondered if Dominic really loved Kara? I do think he does. The feeling of revenge against the Chus kinda blinded Dominic and that's why I think he hurt Kara. In the end, during their last family dinner.............it surprised me that Kara went insane. And seeing the pain on Dominic face told me that he regretted for what he did.
Tavia Yeung plays as the younger version of Yuen Chau. It was extremely sad to see her loose one of her sons on the train. And again when Dominic framed her and wanted to send her into the mental hospital. Beside being the younger version of Yuen Chau, Tavia is also the braver version of the character.
Dominic is described as the main villain in the series but for me, Eric Li was the scary one. Eric showed of a creepy/scary aura around him, while Dominic was more 'settled'. He wasn't as creepy as Eric. With his eyes and shiny, bald head.......and his singing......he seriously creep me out.
During the flashbacks in the first couple of episodes, the parts where they talked about Dominic, I didn't found him that evil. I just found him hard headed and someone who think too highly of himself. At the same time, I find the 2nd wife to be the annoying one :P
Dominic's suicide was unexpected for me, I thought he'd only go insane. Though it was a surprise, I did like it =) Better than just turning good.
I'm really loving this guy right now. He surprised me in Safe Guards, A Great Way to Care, Beyond the Realm of Conscience and yet again in here =) He's a guy who listens to everything his wife says (Angela Tong) because he felt that he was in debt to her. As a KungFu lover, he stopped it because of Angela. I was surprised and sad of his ending. Angela didn't cherished him and ended up regretting it.
One of my favourite supporting actress, I did like her in here. Though her character is selfish, but she's quite a business woman. I just wished that she could've had a happy ending with Rams.....
Nancy Wu - Eh.....over thinks thing. If she didn't try to get rid of Natalie, she would've actually gotten Kevin.
Shirley Yeung - her role is much smaller in here than I had expected. I don't really like her in here and during her laughing scenes, I find it a little bit exaggerated.
Alex Lam - Sometimes abit exaggerated but alright. Haha, the part where he fell into the cow's poo was hilarious :P Though I must say the jokes and stuff from his siblings at that time went a bit to far.....
Stephen Au - Another I don't have a comment on.......he was cute when he and Alex tries to spy on Angela though =)
Above.........one of my favorite scene ever!! Lols it was so funny. the uncle was so mad at them but when he saw them dressing up as girls, he started singing with them =D I love the uncle so much!! Brings the joy and humor to the family ;)
Rather than a humorous one, this one is quite touching. Because Yuen Chau refused to have an operation, all the kids did something that made her agree to the operation. Quite a touching scene.
I remember I voted for Kenneth and Natalie in the poll^^ Haha, Kenneth is quite popular isn't he? Maybe it's just me but I think Kenneth always get lovable roles xD
This is a definitely must watch series of the year! Even though it did start of a bit slow in the beginning, this series was definetly worth your time. My sister who said that this seies looked boring and only will watch it with vietnamese subs, ended up watching most of the series at night in eng subs. Haha, my sister was really into this series. I've also heard from someone else....that she found the series slow at first but ended up finishing it in 4 days!!
So yah, definitely worth watching ;)
