My top 5 TVB drama of 2016 (till date), according to sequence. Technically, the year hasn't end so I can't really say top 5 but I couldn't wait to share this! Haha. Do watch these dramas if you are free! 

I am a huge fan of most TVB dramas, but I just found a new favourite, 城寨英雄 Fist Within Four Walls. I took an interest to the Kowloon Walled City while researching for my Hong Kong trip few years back, and this story takes place in Kowloon Walled City in the early 1960s.

This period drama is part martial arts part comedy. I especially like the love story between 拳佬 ~ 刁蘭 and 龍成虎 ~ 柯德莉! This is the 2nd drama that made me like Ruco Chan alot, after Brother's Keeper in 2013. (Oh ya he was also quite cool in the finale scene of Captain of Destiny.)

Also a favourite, EU超時任務 Over Run Over. "The show centers on a police officer who, after traveling back in time to prevent her father's death, experiences severe repercussions of the butterfly effect." It was interesting to watch how everything affects everything and the conclusion that sometimes turning back time may make situations worse. The awesome thing is, it's not just a straightforward turn-back-time story, it's actually quite complicating with all the plots connected in one huge cycle. I liked Vincent Wong's performance here, especially towards the end. 

Before that I watched 潮流教主 Fashion War, which is mainly office politics in a magazine editorial setting. Quite interesting and fast paced. Another worth mentioning is 殭 Blue Veins, a modern vampire drama. It was a little slow and boring at first but the concept is unique.

I also enjoyed  鐵馬戰車 Speed of Life, mainly because of Benjamin Yuen's funny antics and his relationship with Natalie Tong in the drama. 

Don't mind re-watching all of the above!

Update:  幕後玩家 Two Steps From Heaven is quite interesting too!
