Uneven, and Damaging to Chin Ho
4 April 2015 | by (.) – See all my reviews

I remember as a child, and now, my deep appreciation for Chin Ho, the character, and Kam Fong, as a person, in real life.

A great human being, and one of the best TV police officers, ever, in part because he was a REAL police officer before the show.

So, it is most disturbing to script even a hint of corruption on his part.

The plot is goofy, and confusing, and no matter what, Chin Ho, should never have been suspected.

Some of the events, are bizarre, like him leaving in the night, to meet someone, and then, no forensics, about the crime? Come on.

Terrible ending.

Family of Chin Ho, seemed strange and non supportive.

Crazy script, wrong to damage his reputation, even to viewers.
