My Comments: This series is good I think, everyone did a good job but then there is too much people in this series, so even if you have a bigger supporting role, there isn't THAT much scenes of them. I like watching Shirley and Jack the most, that was nearly the only thing I like. But not exactly, I also like watching Christine's evilness, she did great I think, way better from TBBOL. I also think she and Ng Wai Kwok actually quite match too. Also Shirley and Jack too! They're so cute together but too bad, they don't have much scenes. If the series isn't that much family arugement, they could of made more scenes of them. Nearly every episode I'm waiting for their appearance. The beginning of this series may be not that good but up to episode 15, the series goes way more exciting! Also, I thought that Rebecca Chan's character was SOO annoying! But then when Matt dies, she turns all crazy, I actually felt sorry for her. And for Matt, he's really naughty and stuff but inside his heart, everyone can see that he's not actually bad, its actually because their parents keep letting him do anything.

Main Cast Thoughts:
Nancy Sit: Haven't seen her a while, she was okay I guess, but I really didn't like her the bit where CHristine is already sick and she takes her to some temple and also Charmaine's wedding to that ugly guy.

Paul Chun: He was so evil, but then fun to watch. Have you realized that there's a few of his series lately? Like Wasabi Mon Amour?

Ng Wai Kwok: His character was alright, I liked him and Christine.

Christine Ng: She was evil in the series too, while you watch in the middle. I like watching her evilness, but she's actually quite kind hearted.

Shirley: I love Shirley! I really like her paired with Jack too. They're so cute, I hope TVB lets them work together again and hopefully paired together! And hope it's not a family arugement, so less scenes of them. I liked Shirley's appearance in TSCOS.
