This is a sophisticated look at those pre-wedding jitters when we question whether we are doing the right thing, and the love and commitment needed to persevere to the big day.

'Never Give Up Dodo, shows how love makes us foolish and sometimes drives us crazy from the many challenges to relationships; but if we persist and get it right, we will be happy and fulfilled. That is the core message of the drama. It is an intelligent, adult satire on love, relationships and to a small degree on marriage.

The use of humor and satire to highlight a more serious message is brilliant and very well done. There are many 'laugh out loud' moments, and scenes where you are compelled to say 'what the hell…!!! ^_^' . Though we laugh in jest, we are aware of the underlying message of love, trust, respect for your partner or lover, and his/her family. I liked the use of satire to deliver the message, because if you can see the ridiculous, then you understand what's sensible. If you can see what is rational then there is hope for finding the answer.

I liked that there is a right balance of mockery, and a good use of 'Greek chorus' (group of minor characters mimicking lines to comment to the audience) in this drama, which added to the humour.

Of particular note is the frank treatment of issues including the sexual innuendoes and inferences, as 'sex' can often make or break relationships and this drama acknowledges that.

We can connect with this drama because some of these situations, although exaggerated, we have experienced to some degree, so it's relatable. We recall those moments in our lives when we did something equally as petty, or scheming and at the time it was justified, but watching it in the drama it is seen for what it is, petty or foolish.

The two main actors Gau Godfrey and Yin Hang, are both very attractive, have good chemistry and do a credible job in delivering their comic faces and roles. They are also well supported by the other actors all of whom delivered strong performances. The cast for this show were for the most part very attractive, lots of eye candy.

Excellent to watch with a lover, partner or good friends because it is hilariously funny but with an underlying message about relationships and commitment. It may seem weird or silly to some people (based on comments posted) but you must bear in mind, this narrative is satirical in nature so it will not follow the usual rules of sense and sensibility, and it is actually quite cleaver. Highly recommended, sit back with snacks and enjoy.

To say the truth... I only watched it because of Godfrey Gao... *-*

The Story was refreshing and I really liked it.... When I started it I first thought this would be super boring but the first few minutes already showed me that this drama wasn't boring at all!

The Cast was awesome... As I already told above I only watched because of Godfrey and hey... I never regreted it! he is such an awesome actor! *-*
This was Yin Hang first drama and she was awesome... When I heard that it was her first time acting I was speechless.. She is an awesome actress ^^
