仙剑奇侠传 Game & Series

Just finished watching the series 仙剑奇侠传. It all began with a game that I played in 1998, a Chinese RPG game that had a great storyline with heros wielding swords and magic. By no means that this is any cheesy normal sword fighting game like the newer RPGs out there. The storyline was just beautiful, comparable only to the likes of Final Fantasy (there's none other than can really compare... really). After coming to SH, i learned that it was made into a TV series in 2005. Normally TV series changed some of the important aspects and introduced some fan service to boost up ratings (like Harry Potter); but this one stayed on the storyline till the end and I'm very impressed on how much it resembled the game, even with very hard to create CG scenes, along with a great cast that really fit into the role that they were playing. Even LOTR at times felt awkward since some things are better told in literature than in film, but not with this series. Damn, I shouldn't have got so obsessed in the series and completing 34eps within 1 week, now I feel so nolgistic and sad (because of the ending and completing it so soon) after watching it. Ah... but can't complain, it's just too good of a series, i'm thinking of replaying the game or even getting the authentic movie discs. Now I got the music stuck in my head: 一场雨把我困在这里 你冷漠的表情会...

ha ha ha, don't blame me for simplified chinese :p It's all due to the translating program^^

No ar... actually Ling-yee's actress is very pretty - she was also the cast for little-dragon-girl. Only this angle looks bad, i think she looks prettier than yuet-yue, but i still do like yuet-yue way more... she's like the perfect character man. You got to see the series or u are not a hardcore fan of the series... muhahaha.... (I'm going to rewatch some gd eps now)
