5th Anniversary

It has been five years since I created Casual TVB to share my passion for TVB. Now, my passion for TVB has faded as the quality of their dramas continuously deteriorates. This year, I only managed to make 78 posts, the vast majority of which were routine drama posts. I thought about quitting on the 5th anniversary of this blog, but I still enjoy the occasional challenge of translating synopsis for upcoming dramas. So I will continue maintaining Casual TVB for now and hope that TVB can reinvigorate my passion as they celebrate their 50th anniversary. Thank you to all the readers that have been with me in this five year journey.


  1. Wow, 5 years already! Time sure does fly! :-) I absolutely know how you feel, maybe even more so given that I've been "following" TVB for more than half their existence and while I should be happy for their big 5-0, I find it hard to muster any feeling for them anymore outside of disappointment and sadness. I admire your continued dedication to translating the synopsis for their dramas (especially since I know if it were me, I would be totally unmotivated to do so because I feel it's a waste of time) and rest assured that there are people out there who appreciate your efforts.

    Thank you for all the insightful and informative posts over the years! Hope that you will continue blogging even if TVB continues to disappoint, as I've always enjoyed your posts -- though of course, I respect whatever decision you end up making. Best of luck to you and hope that we get the chance to chat more in the future. :-)

    1. Thanks llwy12! Seeing your always thoughtful comments is part of what keeps me going. I want to have higher hopes for TVB's 50th anniversary, but the dramas they are producing for it sound so awful. Even with some big name actors returning, I just know the scripts are going to be garbage and a waste of their talents. What a pity!

  2. it's true, there aren't as many good show as before but I always find good ones. I haven't lost interest yet.

    it's so nice to hear you're continuing your blog as there really aren't that many blogs about tvb/hong kong shows, most I found hardly updates.

    happy 5th anniversary! & have a lovely day.
