Default C-Drama Recommendations and Discussion - 05-19-2010, 12:21 AM

Recommendations:

Legend of Condor Heroes 2008
Return of Condor Heroes 2006
Shanghai Bund 2008
Royal Tramp 2009
Chinese Palidin
Chinese Palidin 3

These are all Martial arts dramas. And of the recent type as well. If that's your thing then go for it, other wise they may bore you. Oh and these drama's rely on the same dodgy CG effects, which annoy the shit out of me, doesn't make em any less entertaining, just somewhat annoying.

TVB dramas are the go if you want the best of the best. The actors can act, the company has an extremely long history, and they don't rely on crummy CG to make up for skill. Legends such as Tony Leung, Chow Yun Fat and Andy Lau began there.

Moonlight Reasonance - Prob as good as tv dramas can get, about family life, some romance, just don't expect Jdrama randomess or Kdrama romantics in it.

I remember watching Return of Condor Heroes 2006 2years ago in like 2 weeks during summer break, because every episode ends in a fucking cliffhanger, so that you cannot stop watching :/
Funniest thing was when my dad spoilered me something because he's seen the '84 version.

Oh that's right, thanks for reminding me to finish Return of Condor Heroes 2006, i've had that stalled for years on my harddrive.

As well i concur that TVB has awesome dramas, especially E.U.: Emergency Unit. The way the plot carried out was mind blowing.

If you can understand chinese and have sky TV i recommend 785 for pcne xP

there's usually some decent drama here and there, though there's no english subtitles at all. Don't bother with it if you only like martial arts though, it's mainly war/drama.

star tv? you mean extra star that domestic power appliance advert? o.o
pcne is the one with the pheonix (i prolly spelled that wrong).
I watch chinese drama occasionally, though mainly cause i'm chinese.
The best channels for martial arts drama aren't availible over at europe and quite alot of the pcne series have a rather slow going plot.

Can't Buy My Love; it's a new TVB drama, a comedy and it's pretty damn good. Chinese Palidin 3, the start was pretty interesting, but after a dozen eps, I kinda lost interest. Summer Desires is pretty good though, should check it out, and Moonlight Reasonance is prob the best TVB drama out these past few years.

You can watch it online, download HD or english subbed versions of it here. New site, found it not long ago myself. Alternatively you could try D-Addicts or Yellowcinema

Just finished watching Aftershock (2010) and damn, that was a pretty amazing movie. Kind of reminded me of Joy Luck Club actually.

But I thought this movie was going to be about the big earthquake, but that is just the beginning of the movie... the very beginning. The only thing I didn't like was that they skipped so much important stuff IMO; stuff I really wanted to see. But damn... the ending was so powerful... I was like crying the whole time.

So far... I think the best Chinese movie I have ever seen is An Empress and the Warriors: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

It is such a beautiful movie with an epic but gentle love story; and Donnie Yen is so awesome when he is fighting at the end of this movie.

Just finished watching Strange Hero Yi Zhi Mei. I've gotta say, it's prob one of the best quality drama to come out of the mainland. I highly recommend it.
