Storyline

In an age of turmoil, heroes will rise. . . It is the end of the 2nd Century and China is in a state of turmoil. The land is divided by warlords and the country is facing famine, droughts, and invasion from bordering tribes. On top of the problems the country is facing, Zhang Jiao and his brothers begin to rebel against the Han, while advocating the arrival of a new era, the era of the "Yellow Dragon," implying that if people followed him, they would lead prosperous lives. Thousands of desperate villagers flocked to follow Zhang Jiao as they raided government offices and plundered towns and villages alike in protest of heavy taxation, wearing only a "yellow turban" on their heads. As their strengths and numbers grew, the "Yellow Turbans" overthrew some of the Imperial Court's best generals and strongest forces. Concerned for their capital in Luo Yang and for the Han empire, the Imperial Court immediately constructed an "alliance" by requesting volunteers across the country to settle ...

Something really different :-)
23 January 2002 | by Master_of_My_DomainSee all my reviews

I got this series from Hong Kong on 58 VCD discs (beautiful special release box-set) and after seeing first episode I put it back on a shelf. Quality of picture is poor, english subtitles are so small even on my 36'' screen hardly readable... But after a while I played it again on big screen tv and altough blockiness and all artifacts from poor encoding showed up even more, tiny english text became easier to read thus I could follow action :-) And what an action it is! By the end of first disc I was so immersed in an ancient historical events of China, it took a sunrise to get me off my lazy chair ;-) I have no idea how historically correct are all shown events, but I must say it is very fascinating to watch it how the Great Empire of China was erected... It seems more like a kind of fantasy for a western person like me, yet it is so similiar to western countries history with familiar if not exactly the same behaviour of Lords of those times; there is treason, there are heroes and anti-heroes... There are plenty of scenes one not being chinese may not fully understand, yet it didnt bother me much. Flow of the action sometimes stutter due to unbeknowst to me reason like concentrating on some (in my opinion) not important details, but make no mistake: it is really *worth* to view this made for tv series, what an incredible experience. Just give yourself a favor: get it on DVD instead ;-)
