I guess I’m gonna start posting some Chinese dramas that I enjoy and worth watching. Kicking it off with the Hong Kong TVB drama “A Watchdog’s Tale”.
Wrapping up this light hearted family/love drama; honestly I really enjoy it and was worth the time watching although it ended with the usual TVB problem which was ending it too quickly and roughly.
A Watchdog’s Tale revolves about things that happened in a small town. The town was peaceful until a retired dog trainer police opening his own dog field, a rich women was kidnapped and the lost of the bag of cocaine.
First of all I find this drama quite hilarious, the names of the town citizens made me laugh and the storyline is quite funny. Chueng Tin Hung who is rich but always get look down by his father kidnapped his own little sister Chueng Tin Ngaw just to get money to build his own business. But stupid as he can be he buried the money in an empty land as he don’t have time to deposit in his bank and when he came back the land was constructed into a dog field. When Chueng Tin Ngaw was released she wanted to find who the kidnapper is which happens to be his own brother. Therefore she with a little clue that it happened in that small town she started being the “undercover agent” and investigate it.
Another major storyline in this drama was the missing cocaine, a gang of mafia was trying to get it back while the town gangster was selling it out in his own bar. What I find hilarious was that the bag of cocaine was kept inside a bowling ball and the daughter of the town gangster was using it for bowling with her police friend who is investigating on this case.
As for the characters, I’ve always liked to watch Steven Ma as most of his dramas are pretty good. Being different from his usual clean and smart looks this time with curly hair and a bit of facial hair he acts as a teen town boy. His acting was great as usual and hilarious as well with his inaccurate pronunciation at some words. Linda Chung challenging the tomboy look was a fail to me, at first sight she totally looks like Bibi Chow (China tomboy-ish singer) with that hair length and the glasses. It was a nice try with the tomboy look but she better off with sticking her usual long straight hair.
Overall this drama was hilarious and great to watch when you want to lighten your mood up although it faces the same usual TVB problem with ending it quick and rough.
