I looooove this show! It's sooo funny. The priest outfit was great. And the English gibberish that everyone thought was good.

I got hooked at the very first scene though... the um... crotch to the bus pass reader thing was XD.

And there was just something about cruising down the road on a tractor... and rapping...

Wow, I was always under the impression you didn't know Chinese or were learning or something? Kudos if you learned it though.

Yeah. I was really surprised to see someone decked out as a priest in this show. Not that there's not priests in Chinese shows, but not hot ones. Brings back memories of telenovelas and soaps I watched that induced some sort of priest fetish.

Ahem...suffice it to say, he caught my attention.


And it's on youtube:

Priest guy in HQ from episode 1!



From the character order on baike, he seems to be the main guy? Poor Wang Chuanjun seems to not be paired with any of the girls.


I hate to be region-prejudiced, but I am so surprised this is from Jiangxi TV which is kinda poor...I guess they're getting better! But then again Hunan TV is poorer than Jiangsu TV and I think they're better. And I never would have heard of this had it not been for all the Meteor Shower haters who compared it

lol I am learning... but I watch a lot of raw shows whether I fully understand what's going on or not. TV, for the most part, is visual story telling. So, while I may be missing specific details and a lot of the verbal jokes... as long as there are good actors who can emote well it doesn't really stop me from understanding and enjoying the show.

For things like iPartment... I can get the simple jokes but iPartment has a lot of psychical and visual comedy too, so that's funny no matter what language it's in.

People are comparing this and Meteor Shower? For real? It's not really the same type of show though. You would think the Meteor Shower haters would be comparing it to other versions of Hana Yori Dango instead. So... if iPartment is being compared to Friends and Meteor Shower is being compared to iPartment... does that mean Meteor Shower is being compared to Friends? lol

I think haters just wanted to hurt Meteor Shower's ratings in the beginning, and this was conveniently on at the time, and fairly well-written so they tried to get people interested in this instead. But you're right...they're not even the same type of series.

But if one of the F4 was a girl, it'd be 3 girls and 3 guys and just like Friends! :innocent

http://www.viikii.ne...-episode-1.html


And inquiring minds want to know...what is up with this part of the credits?

You see the cute couple Zhan Bo and Wangyu in the bg, and then, there's the two guys in the foreground.

^You know I was wondering about that too....it's like wth. It's not like they are being paired together.....just a very odd picture that doesn't seem to fit anywhere. Atleast from what I've seen so far.

Ok, I think that whoever decided to sub this at Vikii decided to maybe because of this post, because they have my exact character descriptions, which I'm ok with, but I did those character descriptions really fast. There are full character descriptions at Baike, which I will translate later.

Maybe I should make threads for everything I'd like subbed. If you guys at Viikii are reading this, can you sub Ugly Wudi too? It's funny as well....slow at the beginning, but very funny.




I broke down. Out of everything I wanted to watch, Sophie's Revenge, PoT2, Ugly Wudi 3, etc, etc I decided to watch the first episode of this, and so far it's so so hilarious. I'm at the part where Lv Ziqiao's trying to get into the wedding. And you're right! I love the actress for Wan Yu. She's so cute without being annoying. She would have made a good Sakuno.


I haven't loved an Asian sitcom so much since Jia You Er Nv.



They have little Character profile pictures:

Wang Chuanjun ^^ Always playing someone Japanese related.

It's not exactly like an American sitcom but it's pretty close. It's twice as long as any American sitcom but it's got laugh tracks and it's all about the sometimes cheesy jokes. Silly antics and all that stuff.

^Haha it does get pretty cheesy sometimes. But I love the fact that they encorporate so much into this, like HXGG, Romance in the Rain, Wang Leehom. It's all pretty funny.

I'm sad I didn't get to finish this before school started. Now it's gonna take me forever to finish the rest.
