Overview - A General, A Scholar and A Eunuch

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.

Overview - Legal Mavericks

After losing his vision due to an accident, Vincent Wong faced discrimination and bullying. But it only boosted his willpower and determination to obtain his barrister's license. At the same time, he developed a superior sense of touch and becomes widely-known in the legal community as the Blind Lawyer. Still, it is difficult for anyone to truly understand his dark inner-world. Fortunately, he has two friends who are always there for him. One is his housemate and private detective Owen Cheung, the other is his paralegal with a triad background Sisley Choi. The trio is known the "Three Swordsman", unafraid of standing up to authority and helping vulnerable populations fight for justice. Vincent's borderline tactics attract the attention of judge Ali Lee, who is interested in developing their relationship beyond friendship. The four people's fate experience drastic changes as they encounter many difficult cases. On top of that, Vincent's father and junior classmate (Tracy Chu) reappear, leading to problems that even the law cannot resolve...

TVB will be airing Legal Mavericks on Saturdays and Sundays, beginning June 24. The Mandarin version will be released weekly through iQiyi.
