I’ve just finished watching Romantic Repertoire a tvb sitcom of 21 episodes and I’m pretty happy to inform you that it was a pretty good sitcom. 21 episodes seems a wee bit long to me because the end of the story was in such a hurry to end. Wasn’t the ending that I was hoping for , but it was as close to reality as I could tell.
TVB has outdone itself this time with this sitcom. Moses seems to be acting like himself in real life it seems but Joyce Koi seems to be a little bit too old for being the leading lady? Joyce’s real age is 49 years of age but is acting for a 39 yrs old, even though she pulled it off really well – to pair her up with Moses, seems a little off in my opinion. Of course, I understood why they put her in this sitcom because Joyce is actually an opera singer in Hong Kong and a famous one if I am not wrong.
Louise Lee portrayed a very good mother/manager for Joyce (Kan Kit) and I also saw old actor like Pat Poon as well. Although Pat Poon was placed in a very small role, it was good to see some oldies around still.
