nice little one
13 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

don't be mislead by other reviews and the plot summary. it seems like after reading them, one will expect it to be like a "sex and city" type TV series like I..

no, on the contrary, it's very complete non-sexual, there isn't sex or implied sex in it, not even a kiss(except friendly one). even China or India today don't make TVs like that anymore..the TV is about the little life of a bourgeois couple, husband is a cop ,wife is a businesswoman dealing in artworks. the husband is quite innocent and light hearted, though 50 years old, he seems like a big child(OK, today's kids are more than that!). he often falls in love with girls he randomly sees on street..yes!, fall in love! there is one episode, to win the heart of a girl he just meets, he decides to be a boxer.. however the main content is more about the guy and his relationship with his well mannered wife .his wife is wife,sister, mother to him at the same time..and various trivial things.

anyway if such kind a man exists in real life, he certainly deserves huge love around. so i suggest the plot keyword "womanizer" be deleted.because it's derogatory..well, I'm certainly aware that there are likable womanizers like Cary Grant type. but he is still not.

I voting 7 doesn't mean it's not good enough, i'm just more strict
