>> Currently On The Playlist: First off we've finally made it through the week (pat on the back), my lazy nature started kicking in yesterday. Now lets get started. I've been about half a year "sober" on HK sitcoms since VOH & Women On The Run ended. I recently just started catching up with Welcome To The House. Alot people praised this series so I decided to see for myself what the hype is about. I wasnt eager at all in the beginning because 240 episodes drove my lazy behind away, I dreaded downloading them even though not all 240 of them have been filmed & released. each episode is only 20 mins long, & so far from what I've watch focuses on one plot & later moves on with each episode.
>> Worth The Watch? I say its worth the watch. The sitcom is overall enjoyable. I read it was designed to be a sitcom that entertain & relieve HK viewers after a hard day of work. I think it did what set out to do. The overall family atmosphere from VOH is somewhat brought back. The family has really good chemistry. I read Raymond Cho & Jonhson Lee dont really along so sometime you raise your eyebrows & sorta ask yourself "are they for real?". The title Welcome To The House is 100% perfect for this series because more than half of the screentime in each episode takes place inside their house.
>> Likes & Dislikes: I really like Shermon Tang (MHK 2005 Miss Photogenic). She kinda won me over, I now understand why her fan base is growing so fast. I was so surprised that this is her first acting job. I also have been reading her blog, she also sems very down to earth. Cracks me up every time she bites Raymond Cho's arm. I absolutely love Christine Ng, but I prefer her character in Women On The Run more than this one. In WOTR she had alot of screentime, and she was alot funnier with alot of spunk & personality. Her character is kinda dull in Welcome To The House, I dont necessarily dislike more like in the middle.
*Viet Release: I know that this hasnt been release in the U.S. for Vietnamese viewers yet, but based on the order of release it should be release fairly soon. Dont quote me on it though, I dont exactly have an inside scoop on TVBI.
