With the exception of Northern Exposure, I don't like TV dramas. This Hong Kong series is another exception; it's well-written and cleverly structured to include a cliff-hanger at the end of every episode. And it has a star-studded cast. Yuen Wah (the landlord from Kung Fu Hustle) and Leung Kar Yan as Wing Chun Kung Fu masters, and Yuen Biao (arguably the best acrobat ever filmed) as a Wing Chun student.
It's worth noting that Yuen Wah and Yuen Biao (along with Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung, etc.) all grew up together at the same Peking Opera School. They refer to each other as brothers. Yuen Wah is Yuen Biao's elder brother. Their on-screen chemistry is wonderful.
