This was a really interesting series to be watching. I felt that the story line was well written and really well acted out by the cast. Each of the individual cases usually spanned a few episodes and there was of course an overall case which is to catch darker. I was sucked into this show from the very first episode onwards. I felt that each of the police officers had their own personality and they brought something different into the group but also onto the cases that they solve. I felt that at first each of them didn't work really well together but as time went by and they spent longer together they started to really care about each other and worked better as well.

I've been on a binge for really good crime shows and had found this one. I realy enjoyed the storyline and the acting and the cast. I felt that each of the characters complimented each other really well. And the plots for each of the cases was very well done and not at all predictable. However, I felt that the ending was very rushed and felt that it hadn't fully finished or had a second season coming. I also would have liked to know a little bit more about each of the main characters that made up the team of detectives. I felt that there were a few flashbacks but things weren't really explained and with an ending like they had I felt that it made things a little too confusing for me. I would be watching it again to see if I had missed some important points through the series.

After watching the new Huang Zhu Ge Ge I was looking for something with the same actors in it. Finally stumbled on this show and I really loved it. It was written by the same writers and it had some of the actors from Huang Zhu Ge Ge. The beginning of this series was a little slow to start and I did get a little bored in the beginning but it really picked up it's pace quick rapidly. There were tears and laughter all the way though and it showed so much in relationships. Between first loves, sisters and parents. These 4 young orphans had gone through so much while growing up and it was just so inspirational that they eventually all found each other after getting adopted and moving to different cities. I loved how they all worked really hard in what they wanted to achieve what they had at the end. It was so heart warming to watch. This was also a huge tear jerker.

At the end of the last season they left us on a cliff-hanger and not knowing who Darker really is. The beginning of this series starts where we finished in the first season. The special unit has disbanded and they were all working together to get everyone together as their team leader is missing. I was so happy that they were all getting back together. And equally excited when they announced that there was going to someone new joining them but that didn't work out well. This season has the same feeling and tone as the first season and I loved it just as much. The ending of this series was really well done and finding out who Darker was was perfect.

I've recently have been really addicted to watching crime-solving dramas. I stumbled upon this one and I was hooked from the get-go. I'm surprised that there hasn't been a review written for this show yet. I loved the characters and the storyline that was there and the series wasn't overly long and so the plot line was very fast paced but they were still able to get the points across and keep the suspense up.

I really enjoyed watching the show and I was at the edge of my seat the whole time. But what I didn't enjoy as much was at points in time the personality of the main character was not very well explained and her past wasn't explained at all but it seemed to be one of the main parts to why she became a police officer in the first place. The last episode was amazingly put together and was a really good finish to the series.

This was a fantastic show. I've been looking for a crime show to be watching and there isn't a lot that's from China. This one is brilliantly done. The acting was done well and the storyline was brilliantly told. It really kept me at the edge of my seat the entire time. It wasn't predictable and I felt that the story was quite fresh as well. It was full of suspense and you saw the story from both ends. This has been one of the best show's that I've been watching this year. I would highly recommend watching this.

There is so much rewatch value in this series, even though one of the main characters was a Korean actress. She was so amazing, didn't let the language barrier be an issue at all. I applaud her performance.  And of course one of the reasons why I picked this series up was because of Alec Su's performance. This series was witty, funny and highly entertaining to watch. The storyline had been done before but I loved the lightheartedness that they went with rather than it being all serious and doom and gloom. There was a little bit seriousness towards the end of the series but they were still able to come back to the comedy which was amazing.

All these years have passed I still come back to rewatching this drama over and over again. I just love it, it's still very mesmerizing to watch even though I know what will happen and can practically remember the lines.  The story, the music and the cast were all A+ in my books and I would recommend this to everyone. The main characters just had so much charisma and chemistry with each other that made this series that much better to be watching. You would be laughing with them or crying with them as you watch how their lives turn out. It really is a top notch series.

This has been one of the most moving story's that I've watched in a long time. This was based on a real story. There was such chemistry between the two main characters that brought the realness of the storyline. There were sentences in the show that was taken straight from the book itself which was a huge impact for me.
Following Aya through her journey of the sickness was such a heartbreaking thing to be watching. But it was so well done that I would recommend just watching it just once at least. It made me so grateful for what I have now and really think about life that I'm living.

I remember watching this when it first came out and I really loved it. I think this was the first drama of Ariel that I had watched and loved her from the beginning. I loved all the main characters and watching each of their lives play out throughout the series. Each of the girls had a different personality but they worked so well together. This is series really reminded me a little of sex and the city but a younger version. I found the story really easy to get into and for a time being I was quite obsessed with it.

The first time that I had watched this I absolutely loved it! Both Zhi Wei and Xiao Ye Zi were so well done. I just loved their innocence and loyalty to each other. They were so bubbly, happy and witty. The story was really moving but that's what Qiong Yao's stories are like. I've never read any of her books but have watched a lot of her series made into Tv shows. I was so surprised at how well the cast had done. As they were all very new to this sort of drama but they had done so well in portraying each of the characters and bringing them together. The music was very moving as well and listening to the music makes me think of the show.
The pairings were brilliantly done as well and I felt that the director did very well in putting in cliff-hangers at the right places that had my wanting for more.

This was a phenomenon drama, really one of a kind. The casting was out of this world, the acting was just at another level, the soundtrack was amazing and it paired well with each of the scenes. This would be one of those dramas that I can watch over and over again. The storyline was epic and it was intriguing to follow through. There were so many parts of it that I couldn't help but cry for the main character and Hu Ge was just amazing in his performance. I fell in love with this series immediately and with each passing episode, I fell more in love each time.

I don't watch a lot of Japanese Dramas to be honest and I had watched the Taiwanese version of this story before landing on this one to watch. I loved both in their own way. I felt that there is something that the Japanese drama can do when transferring a manga into a live action drama that other places just can't. There was this sweetness and certain cultural aspects was just different when it's done in Japan and doesn't really translate to a different country.
I loved the interaction between the main characters and the family. Even though it was a drama it still maintained the cuteness and sweetness of a manga series.

I loved this one much more than the first season. This is super rare for me I usually love the original so much more than the second season. This was very different I felt that there was more going on in this series than the first and there was more about the characters that you could learn about. There is a lot of rewatch value in this series, I always felt different about the characters each time that I had watched them. I loved how they went through with this second series where there was a deeper dive into the story for each of the characters and it still kept my interest.

I was so good!!!!! This is actually one of my first anime shows that I watched that was turned into a live action drama. So I could definitely be a little biased with my review. But it was really good. I loved the characters, music and of course the storyline. It was a really good series to be watching, there was a dream like storyline that was taken from the anime but the live action added their own style and twists. And I felt that each of the characters/actors took the initiative to add in their 2 cents in as well.
I can't even put into words on how much I loved watching this series and I still come back to this to watch every now and again.
