My very deep thoughts upon this Taiwanese miniseries about skullduggery and fashion design:

1. Sui (the heroine, prone to crying fits and somewhat self-absorbed) is very annoying. And dumb as a warren of rabbits. An intellectually challenged hamster could probably out think her.

2. Liang (the hero, who loves unbuttoned shirts) is very pretty. And is also very nice. As he has to put up with the eternally damp Sui as a girlfriend I believe he should run off with evil textile company queen who wants him for his body and his design skills.

3. Evil dad is great. He keeps separating his son (Liang) and Sui with an effortless ease that bespeaks years of evilness and plotting. And he smirks wonderfully and casts an aura of nastiness with careless abandon. I love evil dad.

4. Horrible teen star who is in love with Sui (like every other man except evil dad, who has taste) should run off with her and leave Liang for for the textile company queen. Or maybe just leave Liang to mope in disturbingly attractive pain and woe. Um.

5. Why did they drop the plot of evil dad running off with Sui's mum when Sui was a wee child? At least it gave her revenge fantasies some point.

And in other news, [livejournal.com profile] meyerlemon, who has been posting about CSI: NY for a while (speciically about Danny from that show) posted a link to a picture of the aforementioned Danny. And all I can say is --- well, yes indeed. I do not know what it is about the picture, but despite the fact that I hate these sorts of programmes I now want to watch this show.



I'm less up in arms about the Doctor (though that's not exactly a nice suit they have him in) than Martha. That's one very pretty woman they've stuck in a horribly shiny brown jacket and made do odd sultryesque expressions or something that make her look odd and strangely stretched in the face. They did this a bit with Rose as well, so I guess it's the BBC phototographer, but they are not doing her any favours at all. (Look at this picture: http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/gallery/doctormartha/1024/docmartha5.jpg). Hmm

I KNOW. That picture is really something.

It has me all flustered. There may be flailing of some sort too.

DUDE I KNOW.

Stupid chest hair. I mean, without it, it would still be a very fetching picture, but I wouldn't be flailing.

I am not sure what it is, but there is something about it that makes me want to say - yes! he should have the girl and whatever else he wants!

Oh yes. Agreed on 1-5. I think Liang totally should hook up with evil fabric chick. Or anyone with a functional brain actually. Or Sui can stick around if she got a personality and brain transplant. Seriously, I am no dorama expert but she is the most annoying heroine by far.

And yeah, I am confused how the Mom thing never gets brought up again. Hello, she married the guy! And oh yes. Evil Dad has best taste as he is only annoyed by moist Sui.

I am still waiting for Sui to nobly sacrifice herself or do something (anything) for other people, like everyone else has for her. I wouldn't mind her egocentrism it if she wasn't supposed to be madly in love with Liang, but she is and she still is absolutely self-absorbed.

And the vanishing mum subplot is just odd. Where is she? Does evil dad keep her in a box and only bring her out if he wants to totally crush Sui?

Well, she did put up with entertaining Fabric Lady for Liang's sake :P But yeah, she is not much on giving, is she?

Btw, I don't know if you noticed, but the Fabric Lady is the same actress who played Qing Mei in Mars and plays Wei Yi's fiancee in Silence. She seems to have made a career of losing hunky men to other women.

Seriously. And why does Sui never think about it, at all?

Because I think she thinks of little that is not a) all about her becoming the bestest designer ever and b)is not in front of her.

Fabric lady looks much more similar in Mars and Silence (losing the same pretty boy twice, must be hard), but looks a lot different in this one. I wonder if tall women have to play the one what loses the man in all soaps, because the love interests seem to be tiny in my limited viewing. (With the exception of Peach Girl, but they make a point about that.)

Well she does have only a limited brain capacity. Very limited.

I actually laughed out loud at this one. I do think that in Silence she is going to hook up with her very hunky basketball playing partner, so being her isn't that bad.

True. Hmmmm. I wonder why. As a very short girl myself, I am all for it though.
