Jin Yong TVB Chinese costume drama was truly my first love. For years, it was my comfort food living in the west whenever I was homesick and wanted to just hear to someone speak Cantonese. By the time I moved home, the world  had changed and Mandarin Chinese drama was set to take over It was hubris but I was so  adamant that nothing would ever be able to beat the Hong Kong TVB Jin Yong classics. It was true but only for a short time. I believed then that with only four tones, there was no way any Mandarin language show (or song) would be able to come close to the emotional range of expression of the 9+ tone Cantonese language. So I just stuck with Western drama.

Quite recently, one of my dearest friends the Ruby Goddess visited me while I was immobile with an knee injury. She insisted we watch Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms together. And wow.... there are no words to describe how enthralled I was with THE show.  As I binged watched it, I spammed her with alternately angry and grateful wechat messages for challenging by biases and changing my life this way. And thus, I was reborn the PeachBlossomGoddess in another life and another world. Currently still in love with the world of Chinese costume drama but so it is still just my first life.... I have great adventures ahead...

Don't know if I can keep it up but I try to wrap up everything I watch with a review. It is mostly for myself so I don't forget why I liked it (or not) as well as to keep account of the reasons for my ratings.  I have a very high bar for 9.0 and above and 10.0s have to be that very special category that I am unable to stop re-watching. Generally anything above 7.0 is something I consider watchable.
