The Threat of Love II
One thing I like about my video rental store is that they still do VHS rentals. It comes at a cheaper price plus once and a while the VHS tape they recorded over contain parts of another series at the end. Its great to see old series to just rewatch parts again, and sometimes I get series I never seen before which sparks my interests in watching it. I always wanted to watch The Threat of Love II a.k.a. Loving You II, but every video store I go doesn't carry it anymore. I was able to watch one episode that wasn't recorded over yesterday.
Loving You II-"This TVB series consists of ten individual tales dealing with various aspects of human relationship, love and sex. Every story has its own theme. The Threat of Love uses a romantic and heartwarming way to tell stories of modern day relationships, bringing out the delicate and fragile emotions in a realistic manner." So basicly its ten short stories that tackle taboo subjects like fedility, love/money, sexual orientations, and of course sex itself. The episode I watched was about condoms and I was so surprise that TVB was open enough to make a storyline about it. The sex talk was open too, Shirley Yeung's character openly asked for sex from Kevin Cheng saying "Come on, love me like you did this morning", and he responded "I'm tired, you don't understand a man must use up and give off alot more than a woman". I was so surprise to hear that from a TVB series. There were other "open" dialogues even from Sir Chung King Fai.
The Ensemble Cast would be considered a Grand Production cast by today's standard with artists like Nancy Sit, Sheren Tang, Lawrence Ng, Kevin Cheng, Sir Chung King Fai, and Shirley Yeung. Since 2002 (The Year of Production) Sheren, Kevin, and Shirley has had a surge in popularity. The cast is a HUGE reason why I want to watch it. Each cast member has to play 10 different characters somewhat giving the cast of Maiden's Vow a run for their money. The series has mixed reviews, people over 30 don't seem to be very fond of it.
Does any one know where I can watch it online?? In any languages will be fine, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Spanish, French, Hungarian...... I just want to watch it so bad!! :(
