When he discovers a technology that brings him a robot companion from the future, he accidentally programs the robot to model Penny’s ideal boyfriend, instead of programming it to be Penny herself. read moreNow stuck with a male robot companion, A Zhai manages to reorder a female robot and customizes it to be his Penny.
But things get complicated when the robot Penny falls in love with the male robot, instead of Azhai, and the three live together in a hopeless love triangle. What will become of this terrible mess?

I absolutely LOVED watching this show! I finished it in three days. If i didn't have school I would probably have finished it faster XD I can't wait for season 2!

Here are a few things I liked and disliked (in no particular order):

1 THE ACTING

LIKE: I really like the way Bai Zhu plays his character(A Zhai). His facial expressions and the way he brings his lines are quite adorable read more and unique. Even though some people really seem to dislike A Zhai (which I kind of get, when looking at certain scenes, particularly the ones where he mistreats Adam or doesn't listen to his advice, which then results in problems that could've been avoided if he did listen) I think he is a really fun character that brings life to the show.

DISLIKE: A ZHAI IS SUCH. AN. IDIOT! Seriously, I love him, but damnnn he is so stuborn and in some moments pretty mean. I could even call it a little...selfish?. I also dislike the way he treats Adam. Especially since Adam is the one who keeps saving and protecting A Zhai when things turn sour. Which is A LOT of times.

2 FRIENDSHIP

A Zhai and his best friend cracked me up everytime they were together. I loved it when they were scheming and going on missions together. You would think that two heads/two brains together would be able to think of at least a simple, good working plan, but I guess that's not the case with A Zhai and Wang Fu Gui. They are also really bad at lying. But that's okay, It's funny to watch. I think their friendship is really cute.

3 THE CINEMATOGRAPHY

The camera work is done very well. The set also looks great! The whole show gives you a comic kinda feel with all the sound/visual effects they've put in it. All this put together makes the show aesthetically pleasing.

4 STORYLINE

LIKE: The story is suprising and unique. There are a lot of turns and twists that make you want to see the next episode as fast as possible. The pace of the storyline is just right. Not too slow, not too fast. I also like how they sometimes break the 4th wall by talking to us (the audience) directly.

DISLIKE: One aspect of the storyline that gets dragged out too much is A Zhai's obession with Eve. FOR REAL, MAN It just keeps going on and on and on and on and onnnnnn. I rolled with my eyes a lot.

5 THE BL

This is probably what the most of us are here for.
Well, TOO BAD because there is almost none. Except for a few cute scenes, there isn't much romantic action between them. I can't even say ''just watch it for their friendship' because as I said earlier, A Zhai is pretty mean to Adam in every episode. Unless there are more bl scenes coming in season 2 I wouldn't really call this a BL series since 80% of this show is A Zhai chasing after Eve.

CONCLUSION:
It's a really cute show and you should definitely watch it for the cool actors, the humor and fun scenes. But not for the BL.

(Sorry if there are any mistakes or weird sentences in this. English isn't my native language.)

STORY: This writing for this series was all over the place; it was sci-fi, dark, fantasy, romantic comedy, and more. What the synopsis didn't make clear is that Adam loves Ah-Zhai who loves Pei Ni (Penny) who loves Adam. There's a lot of humor and awkward situations because of this love triangle.

ACTING/CAST: Bai Shu (Ah-Zhai) is a very good actor, very expressive. Cai Wen Jing (Pei Ni) is a very good read more actress; she played multiple, and very different, personalities.

MUSIC: I liked both the opening and closing songs of this show.

REWATCH VALUE: Well, I am hoping for a Season 2 but don't have much of a reason to revisit Season 1.

OVERALL: Read my spoiler in the comments section if you want my opinion about the BL in this show.

Both start with the same plot of a humanoid robot to be the partner (taking care) of the main guy.

Both dramas have the lead roles creating a perfect Artificial Intelligence partner in a quest for love. However, the final ending may differ.

      I know right! I think it's a very beautiful song too. If you haven't found it already:

      Name of the song:
      朋友
      Name of the artist:
      張祿糴

      I searched my ass of tryna find the romanization of the artists name, but sadly I can't find it out :/ I think the title of the song is 'Friends', but I'm not sure about this either, because I used google translate and we all know you can't trust Google translate most of the time. Sorry I can't be of more help :( Let me know if you found something out already!

      It's Pengyou by Zhang Lu Di

      Pengyou can be translated as Friend so yes you were right about the title. :)

      It's a Chinese show. Did you really expect the BL angle to be serious?

    does anyone know actors' weibo id?? I really like the series, it's funny (im only on ep 4 so no spoilers pls). I think there will be the second part because we haven't seen the dancing scene or Adam saving Ah Zhai yet.

      There is a "season 2". All together there will be 32 episodes including the part that's just completed. Most Chinese dramas get a part 2 but this drama has the worst way of ending an episode.

    I am so confused it just end like that. Is there more episodes than 16 since I don't think it ended.

    One moment I like it, then the other I don't. It still didn't really get me... after 7 episodes.

    and about BL... it's Chinese drama, people... I wouldn't expect anything! They are against BL-everything (aka they cut all the good stuff from their so called BL movies). :(
