So much to say, but I want to keep brief and not long winded.
1st: The first 10 episodes of Drive was bleh... It was a horrible idea to use the Damian Lau and the three brother's love hate relationship as the opener to the series and hook people. It quite boring to me...
2nd: The dialogue about cars through out the series was so zzzZZZ... They were talking about mechanical parts, car engines, tires, and the list goes on. This might be new to some people but the majority of people that watch TVB series are women. And most women aren't that interested in hearing about car parts... Raymond Lam's body parts, that's another story...
3rd: The last 25 episodes was actually REALLY GOOD. The storyline had finally developed into it's climax. We finally knew who were the true villains and the suspense building towards the finale.
4th: Toby Leung was TERRIBLE! Actors basically pretend to someone their not and most of the time it is believable. Toby does such a horrible job at "pretending" that she looks like one of those people that are bad liars. It was like she was lying to me onscreen. Her crying was just so BAD. She basically just opens her mouth REALLY wide and cringes her face.
5th: I know the storyline was male dominated but I found the women's storyline more interesting.
6th: Best Actress in this series goes to Sheren Tang, hands down.
7th: The most dynamic character in this series is Wing Sau Fung (Charmaine's). So well crafted and had such a huge impact on the series. Wing Sau Fung to me was a combination all four dominant women in War & Beauty because possessed qualities that existed in all of them. On Sin-Highly Intellegant; Yuk Ying: Foolish; Yee Shun: Cunning; Yue Fei: Strong Willed. (By the way, I know the series were not produce by the same producers.)
8th: WHY JESSICA? WHY?! Why did you accept this role? Her character was so annoying and did nothing dynamic to the overall storyline until all the way towards the end. She basically lived off of what Joe Ma's character did. Her character was irrational, stupid, and a push over.
9th: The ending could have been better. It was good, but I really expected a better ending.
10th: Overall, this was a really good series. I have no clue way everyone is saying it is bad. Alot of them didn't watch it yet, but they had to jump in with comments saying it's not interesting and it's a failure. I think they're just bandwagoners who dislike one or two of the cast members so they'll say anything to bring it down or bring up the series their favorite stars are in. This is so stupid to me, if you're a TVB fans you should have an open mind about all series... This goes for all series, not just [Drive] by the way...
