Title: Heart of Greed
Description: what do you guys think?
RLF Lover - April 26, 2007 04:53 AM (GMT)
What do you guys think of Heart of Greed so far? Are you sastified with Raymond's acting? Are you sastified with HOG's scripts, actions etc etc in general?
My comments: *warning, might contain spoilers!*
Firstly, Raymond's appearance is quite off and on. Like in episode 7, he appears in a flashback (apple green shirt how cute!) for not more than 5 seconds. Then he re-appears again in episode 11, with more scenes. So far I think its okay but i'm starting to agree with the review i read earlier which stated that Ray was just a guest star.
Secondly, I cannot really agree that Ray was just a guest star though .. in the theme video, Ray appeared in the 7th shot which was before Bosco so that made me thought that Bosco was less important than Raymond. Of course, Moses had the most scenes and Bosco had well, some boring scenes.
Back to Ray, his acting so far is pretty good. His role has that character that is making me deeper in love with him than I already am. Potraying a stubborn playboy lawyer is quite unique afterall!
Lets talk in general yeah? I quite dislike Tavia's image this time. Her character is rather annoying and frankly, whats with those bangs?! Okay, so maybe its not her fault, her hairdresser's probably on drugs. Still.... =.="
Bosco's a <3! I really like the way he protects Tavia, such potential in being a boyfriend! like WOMG, was is 700 HKD Tavia borrowed from Bosco for the blackmail case?
All in all, Moses is quite okay... so far that is. Such a jolly character, if he was fatter and had a white beard, everyone would say he's Santa Claus.
Fala Chen, she needs to improve on her cantonese but i didn't find her as annoying as I did before. job well done ^^
The scripts, its funny.. in the beginning. When I first watched episode 1, it gave me the feeling that it'll be really funny and everyone would think it'll be a happy go lucky series but as the theme video depicted, a lot of crying. In episode 11, there was a scene where Fala spoke in English about her oral examination. I was turly touched by that script, so it was really good. ( i even cried T.T )
As of episode 11, I rate it 8/10. Ratings are due to change though. The theme video is really tempting, all the crying and that car accident. I anticipate for the ending.
So what are YOUR comments?

I can't sastify with Fung's part. In fact, he appeared average few mins each eps ( even less than). So I can't see how he portray this role. Alfred just have to talk and walk, nothing happen with him till now. If that will continue, Fung won't have to pay much time for his scenes. And I doubt that his love will be very very rush cuz it's eps 13 now and he'll die in eps 35. And I heard that till eps 15, he still appeared in few mins that way. >"<, disappointed! So around 20 eps, he'll luv, then say goodbye, then luv, then say goodbye, then cheat, then fight for Sui Sam, then die ...blah blah... It's too too rush. I feel tired of finding his scenes each eps.
The themevideo lied us. It shows most of his scenes in this series. He is a gueststar for sure.
'bout the series, I find it ok. I like 2 characters: Susanna's and Michelle's.
I often hate good perfect guy. As Chi On (Moses), yeah, he is the Santa Claus ( with his laugh =)) ). He is too good to be everyone. Lolz, he is human, aren't angel, so the way he is an angel annoyed me. And the storylines focus on Moses - Linda's love too much. They slowly, slowly fall in luv. However, I think Sui Sam (Linda) dun luv Chi On (Moses). The one and the only she luv is Alfred. But her dream of Alfred broken when they become luvers. Alfred is a weak in mind person, so he keeps everything inside his heart. Tat's why Sui Sam can't live with him. She gave Chi On a chance because she feels Chi On is more safe and he luv her with all his heart. A girl dun need a guy she loves, she need a guy loves her.
I dislike both Gil & Jackie, I think this couple is weird.
'bout Jackie's wedding, my gosh, her mom can let her daughter get married without her acceptable in 21th centuary??? It's can't be. She can get out of this marriage in many ways. She've got a job, can feed herself, she is >18 years old, why her mom can let her? And if she realli dun like, why can't she fighten for her freedom. A big problem is her husband's family. If her husband dun luv her ( i feel it in the way her husband treats her), why he accepted it? And her reason that dun like to hurt his dad-in-law is funny. Lolz, she hurt him cuz she dated with Gil secretly. Well, if oneday, her dad-in-law find the article that Jackie and Gil dated, he'll be hurt more.
Gil is totally selfish and crazy in luv. I can't stand with the way he treats her family. I can't understand his words to his family ( cuz I dun noe Canto), but my friend watch it and said that it's very hurt. Yeah, he luv Jackie a lot, but he must THINK of other ppl, as his family, Jackie's dad-in-law. Jackie dun like to hurt did dad-in-law, Gil said he'll go to tell him --> hurt him. And even his mom in the hospital, he still dun think of her, continue his forbidden love. That's call blind in luv. If he thinks his family is important, he can't do that way.
And now their luv becomes more and more unexpectalbe. Jackie has a baby so Gil MUST got married with her, except everyone. And Jackie suddenly can divorce. Hmm, she dun mind hurt his father anymore? Cuz of the baby? I can accept that she can't stand a marriage without luv, but the way she did is wrong. She had a baby with other man when she still has a husband. That means she cheated his husband. Well, if I'm her husband, why can't I dun get mad with her. So if her husband "plays" her, I think I'll accept with him.
The only one scene that I really wanna watch now is the car crash ^^. I rate it 7 as of eps 13.

Ha Yu-I love this guy and i love his character.He makes the character much more interesting
Louis Yuen-Hes a total butt in the series but hes a seriously good actor, he got me to hate him but everytime after the series i think back about VOH and likes him again!LOLS!
Moses-His character is really good, no comment.
Linda-Her character is really good but she screwed it with her acting.When she trys to talk quick or emo she doesnt sound right, and dont say im judjing her too hard cause since the moment she got the award she knew that people would expect more from her and besides she didnt deserve the award.I just dont like her.
Raymond-i dont really knoiw much about him at this point of the series but i think hes pretty good now
RLF Lover - April 26, 2007 08:29 AM (GMT)
i agree with you fox, i'm starting to accept the fact that Ray's just a guest star. still, we can all look forward to Drive of Life.
in any case, what really annoys me most is the part where Ha Yu or Moses laugh. its realllyyy freaky, frankly speaking.
My mom loves the part where Susana and Michelle argues. i find it quite nice too, those scenes.
at the point of episode 11, i find that the series is going just too slow. and i think its not constant. like at some parts the scripts will be very nice and at other parts it'll just be downright boring.
nevermind, its okay if Ray didnt major his role in this series. we shall all look forward for Drive of Life. i have higher expectations for that series.
MeiMei - April 26, 2007 12:34 PM (GMT)
Ray apperead only for a few minutes in eps 11 and 12, and 28 SECONDS in eps 13! :( wanna watch more of Ray! hope in the coming eps there'll be more of him....
RLF Lover - April 26, 2007 12:51 PM (GMT)
yeah.. such short scenes!
fox - April 26, 2007 01:43 PM (GMT)
So I'm not watching Ray's part in this series, I'm finding it.
RLF Lover - April 26, 2007 01:48 PM (GMT)
yeah .. we kinda cannot expect when Ray would appear.
vickie - April 26, 2007 02:26 PM (GMT)
Raymond DOES appear as GUEST star. it was stated when they were filming it. but LUCKILY, his role is LARGER than ANY other guest star. (see how important it is?!)
anyways. THERE WILL BE MORE RAY..;) just WATCH. lols, i even know wen his "MOST IMPORTANT PART" comes. (ahem*) lols. ep...lols..guess. LOLS
HE DOES NOT APPEAR ALL THE WAY BTW.
so FAR: i think that the acting is GREAT. everyone's. i HECKA love the BoTa scenes..AND where the "elders" act. lols..the FIRST mom and dad are just BRILLIANT. ^_^ OF COURSE with the help of uncle bo and second mom, and auntie lei...things are MUCH more interesting!!
d0ggiel0ver - April 26, 2007 07:55 PM (GMT)
Raymond: so far so good, but not much screen time yet
the only thing that is dissapointing is the ending of his character *sighs* :( :angry:
and ohh i like ha yu and michelle yim in the series also .. they're like the fun older ppl
and i like moses, so funny with linda and funny with ha yu .. i know why ppl fnd him annoying character, but i dont know why, i like it! it lightens up the whole series :D
and dislike 2nd mom and uncle how annoying .. :angry: they're like selfish you know ..
RLF Lover - April 27, 2007 12:51 AM (GMT)
yeahh that uncle bo is really getting on my nerves. there was once where keeps talking about how moses stole the 700HKD and he kept on till his big sis had to kick off the dining table. hah! serve him right.
well its alright if Ray's a guest star. like you said vickie, that role is wayyy bigger than any guest star ! and if not mistaken, i've never seen any theme vid with guest stars scenes pratically at every shot and ray comes in ranking at 7th, even before bosco!
FallenAngel - April 27, 2007 01:53 AM (GMT)
so far i loved this series.....quite interesting....and i really like moses character! sooo funny...cracks me up most of the time...but sometimes i find it a bit too exaggerating....like hes trying tooo hard to be funny...its ok overall....i must say linda improved....i used to hate her lots....shes ok in this show....BoTa is ok...they were good...its just that im biased towards Fungyi....out of the elders i like Ha yu the most...he cares about his family and hes fun....ok.........finally....ah fung! hes sooooo cute!!! but i want more scenes of him!!!! oh gosh....in every eps since eps 7 im craning! my neck to see him....but theres like only 5-10 mins of him out of the 45 mins in each eps....its killing me...hoping for more scenes of him soon!
Julia. C - April 27, 2007 02:04 AM (GMT)
HOG!! is Awesome!!!!...i havent watch a series like this for a while...not just the ray parts are good but the other parts are good too!!!....this series liek really does effect my feelings...like when ever i watch a sad scene i would be like sad!!...its a really good series!!...im looking forward to seeing more of it XD
magarita30 - April 27, 2007 02:27 AM (GMT)
I do the same as FOX did. Trying to find Ray.
Oh he appear in Epi 13 aswell. Umm. I have to watch again.
I kind of miss the scene (28 sec. <_< )
I didn't pay much attention to others.
But I have to admit that Mose's character is annoying me with his freaky laugh and stupid look. I don't understand why he has to make his face like a monkey. It's too exaggerate and weird acting.
Actually I quite like Linda. Can't wait to see her having more screentime with Ray.
Yoyo look old. I don't feel that she match Ray at all.
vickie - April 27, 2007 02:49 AM (GMT)
ep 14. SERIOUSLY, now i SUPER think the second wife is SUPER annoying. its COOL that if she go against the first wife. but FREAK, admit wat u did...dont even LIE in front of ur husband and pretend nothing happened. SHOOT.
lols. ray was soo darn CUTEE in this ep. YELLOW shirt. ^_^ lots of car scenes. LMAO. i likeyyy it. 13 roses=has a crush on u. red roses=confession. LOLS
ahching20 - April 27, 2007 06:48 AM (GMT)
So far, ray doesn't have any long scene, only couple of minute which i think is not enough. I watch this serie because of him. Well lets just wait and see
RLF Lover - April 27, 2007 09:52 AM (GMT)
haha, luckily i started this thread ^^
i agree with some who says this kind of series really affect my feelings. like if the flow of the story is sad and emo-ish, i'd feel just the same way!
MeiMei - April 27, 2007 11:40 AM (GMT)
ep 14: a lil better... abt a total of 7mins Ray-screentime and FINALLY Ray&Linda subsong! :D really cannot understand why tvb waited until ep14 to air the sub! :angry: the maintheme is not that good... <_<
RLF Lover - April 27, 2007 01:32 PM (GMT)
its true, if compared to the subsong, the sub is wayyyy better but i quite like the themesong too. the way susana kwan sings it gives the series itself a lot of strength ... u know?
i know, i'm crapping. ><"
fox - April 27, 2007 01:40 PM (GMT)
Lolz, I do like both theme and subtheme. After hear Life Art's themesong ( well, I dun hate Kevin Cheng's voice but this song is too bad for me. Sorry all Kevin's fans here ^^), Susanna's themesong is way better.
Today eps 15 will out. Only 45s T_T o_0. Hope next week will better cuz he'll in luv with both of girls next week! Come on guy, show us how can U portray a player!
MeiMei - April 27, 2007 01:53 PM (GMT)
45 secs?!? :o ok, let's wait for next week.... :(
d0ggiel0ver - April 27, 2007 05:25 PM (GMT)
here u can vote for the fav. in HOG .. raymond and bosco are mostly on the top, it really changes fast .. but then raymond just a guest star and already got so many votes, while just appearing in this week's episodes :D go raymond B)
fox - April 27, 2007 06:02 PM (GMT)
Wrong info. He appeared in eps 15 for few mins, not 45s.
'bout the vote, can cheat with it ^^. So the result is for whose fans have more free time.
vickie - April 27, 2007 11:07 PM (GMT)
u know..heart of greed makes pplz cry><" i dont like it wen dat happens. LMAOo....it makes me all ECKY!!!
i kno for sure ill cry later in the series...wen MORE complicated stuff happens. lols..HAHAHHA. LOTS of stuff will happen><" its gonna be a dramatic series.
RLF Lover - April 28, 2007 12:37 AM (GMT)
the series really tense me up at times. you know, suddenly they all get into a huge fight and then ... all the tears and anger all out. like in episode 13, omg, i really felt like crying loh when the 2nd wife was arguing... she got probs yaw.
Celestience - April 28, 2007 02:29 AM (GMT)
at least he'll appear for few mins =)
i hateeee the 2nd wifee =__= soo biatchyyy
RLF Lover - April 28, 2007 05:16 AM (GMT)
i just finished episode 14. did everyone notice that the song "My Love Will Get You Home" was in it? .... and that song was also in The Last Breakthrough ^^

haha yes i remember . i believe it was the song for nick and sonija ?
and still hating that 2nd wife .. i cant imagine her playing this role since glittering days character she was all nice and stuff xD
and i thought it was funny in ep 14 where moses sees linda sleeping in the bus and he was like you have to slap yourselfs to stay awake and he was making those sounds and she moved her head as if she was really being slapped and then her eyes were like :wacko: , i thought it looked funny hehe :D
RLF Lover - April 29, 2007 03:30 AM (GMT)
haha yes! you read my mind! i wanted to talked about that lol but i just didnt know how to put it =) omg genius ! XD
jen1113 - April 29, 2007 06:49 AM (GMT)
for now im not a big fan of this series even theres bota and raymond but linda kills it for me...
RLF Lover - April 29, 2007 09:08 AM (GMT)
aww well i quite dislike Tavia's character in here but i guess she doesnt influence me into disliking the series altogether. i'd watch it for Ray ^^
and umm yoyo gets on nerves 24/7 =/
jen1113 - April 29, 2007 07:06 PM (GMT)
really?i kinda like yoyo in the series, if they had to pair raymond with anyone in the series that not tavia i would choose yoyo...
FallenAngel - April 29, 2007 10:57 PM (GMT)
so little moments with ray in it....im actually not hating linda...lols...shes not bad at all...improved LOTS compared to before....but of course...she can still do much better...
oh my gosh! i LOVE that doreamon that ray gave linda! sooo cute!!! im wondering whether it belongs to ray or not...lolsim gonna steal it from her! lols
waiting for new eps that has scenes with ray for more than a few mins...
Celestience - April 30, 2007 06:59 AM (GMT)
<3 Linda! i wanna cut like her hairstyle one day =D
hmms, so little ray scenes but better than nothing =)
to me, tavia looks a lil' fat o__o
jen1113 - April 30, 2007 07:23 AM (GMT)
tavia looks fat?!i thought she looks skinnier..
bosco's hair in the series is just not all so good...lols
linda again sucked at the crying scene like when she was talking to moses blaming herself, it was so unconvincing but hey all you are ABC's usually most of ya'll just like the actress/actor because of the character...well not a big fan so far but i love the bota moments =]
MeiMei - April 30, 2007 09:56 AM (GMT)
Celes:yeah, I like Linda's hairstyle here too.. I think it'd makes me look thinner... :D
FallenAngel: I noticed too that doraemon... when I saw it I immediately told to myself: Ray chose it by himself! :lol: since he likes doraemon so much... ;) but, perhaps u r right, it can belong to Ray... I bet he has tons of doraemon at home, cuz everytime fans, knowing his tastes, would give him something related to doraemon as gifts. :P
RLF Lover - April 30, 2007 10:02 AM (GMT)
but didnt u guys see the doraemon lying by the side of the road? like there was one part where duk duk dei sent sui mak mak home? and when he came back down seung zhoi sum wasnt in the car anymore? and duk duk dei was like looking for her everywhere and saw the doraemon on the ground.
haha well maybe Ray chose it but i dont think its his =)
fox - April 30, 2007 02:57 PM (GMT)
He'll upset when saw his beloved doraemon lying on the side of the road, if it's his.
RLF Lover - April 30, 2007 02:59 PM (GMT)
yeah and he'd be outrage cos perhaps most of his doraemons were given to him by his fans?
did u get my pm fox?
fox - April 30, 2007 05:30 PM (GMT)
@ RLF Lover: Yes and reply already.
Lolz, maybe baby Fung have some Doraemon of himself. Fanz gave him many but he luv it, he must have some of it....
Rmb, a doraemon umberalla....
Back to HOG: Eps 16 is none of Fung scene...
