    "Celebrating More Than Years 2"

    Returning for the second season, except for the replacement of some supporting characters, all the leading actors return.

    One hour after "Qing Yu Nian 2" started airing, the popularity on Tencent Video reached a peak of over 30,000. On the first day, the popularity on the site was nearly 33,000, which is a figure that only appears at the end of a popular drama. It almost dominates the popular entertainment search list on Weibo, showing its strength. And the attention is evident.

    "Talk about the king of drama, who is the king of drama?"

    It has been five years since the first part was aired. The entire creative team has been "prompted" several times on various occasions and social platforms. Now that the first part has been taken on, the audience can still look forward to it. This may be the case in domestic dramas in recent years. It is the only one to win, and it has undoubtedly topped the charts after it was aired.

    Screenwriter Wang Juan said that the script for the second season took about three years, and "it took such a long time that I was on pins and needles."

    The book picks up from the previous season. This season begins with Fan Xian faking his death and returning to the Qing Kingdom to deal with all the troubles caused by the second prince in the Qing Kingdom at the end of the previous season. After the premiere, there have been nearly 9,000 comments on Douban, but audience feedback is not ideal. Most people said that the content of the series is comparable to the first season, and the sophistication of the series is still online, but the plot logic and actor performances are slightly exaggerated. and nonsensical elements, which amplified the light comedy part of the first season as a "side dish". Many characters showed their talents on the chessboard, tying up the web of struggle between Qingguo's high-level officials, but it was too much, and the feel of the sketch was too heavy. However, after all, it has just started airing, and the fourth episode is starting to get better.

    Still a familiar comedy formula

    In addition, many viewers reported that too many advertisements affected the experience of watching the drama. This may also be an important issue that needs to be balanced in popular dramas.

    "Celebrating More Than Years 2": The feelings are still there

    "old man"

    The Iron Triangle of the Forbidden City is together again, and it’s really time to take care of yourself when you’re old enough. This drama, starring Zhang Guoli, Wang Gang, and Zhang Tielin, mainly tells the story of three retired elderly people, Xiao Changqing, Sun Qiancheng, and Chen Xincheng, who are "ambitious" in their entrepreneurial life in old age. The screenwriter is Zhao Dongling, who is good at realistic themes.

    "Old Guy" stills

    Even if the background of the times has changed, the new story can still give people a lot of familiarity. The three people often "calculate" with each other on the basis of safeguarding their own interests. While forming gangs in pairs, they also need to face life together. crisis. The story does not entirely focus on entrepreneurship, but uses entrepreneurial issues to show the difficulties of the elderly after retirement.

    Perhaps, viewers who are familiar with Audio-Technica are no longer the main audience watching TV series now, and they focus on telling stories about the elderly, based on realism, and the rhythm is eloquent. The series' performance in terms of data is average, and the attention is not high. The popularity on iQiyi has just exceeded 5,000.

    The reason is that on the one hand, the subject matter is biased towards the flow of life and is tepid, making it difficult to create a topic for publicity. On the other hand, although the three actors are familiar with each other, they are not as capable as in "Iron Teeth and Bronze Teeth Ji Xiaolan" The out-of-the-circle scenes and plot lines are quite outdated, and the coordination between the three is a bit exaggerated. It can be used as an evening time series to watch with the family.

    "Heir to Family Glory"

    Another sequel begins. The series stars Charmaine Sheh, Raymond Lam, Luo Ziyi, Luo Jialiang, Hui Siu-hung, and Leung Jingqi. The content has nothing to do with the first part. It tells the story of the Qiu family, a wealthy family that has always favored boys over girls. When the family elder is in a coma due to illness, the group chairman becomes a grown-up. The story of the granddaughter Qiu Haoer, which triggered a power struggle within the family.

    The show had 2.343 million reservations before it aired, making it the top 10 Hong Kong drama reservations in history. It was also the first series to be aired in the "New Hong Kong Drama" slate released by Alibaba Entertainment's "Hong Kong Arts Revitalization Plan".

    "Heir to Family Glory" poster

    As a generation who grew up watching TVB, it can be said that Raymond Lam and Charmaine Sheh have finally "met at the top" again. This is their second collaboration in 10 years after "The Walker" in 2014. Sister Man has just "News Queen" stole the show, and Chen Luojun also regained his home court in "The Siege of Kowloon Walled City".

    In the TVB era, Charmaine Sheh and Raymond Lam were once a popular on-screen couple. They first collaborated in the TV series "Yummy Yummy" in 2005. Since then, they have collaborated in five TV dramas including "The Rainy Day", "The Storm", "Flower World Flower Sister" and "The Apostle Walker". . "Heir to the Family Glory" is their sixth collaboration.

    At a previous press conference to promote the series, Charmaine Sheh admitted that she took on the series because of Raymond Lam: "He (Lin Feng) said I would come to play. Over the years, many fans have said they want to see us get together, and it's time to satisfy them."

    The series has gained a lot of popularity since it was released. It has remained in the top ten on Beacon, Detawen and V charts, and is second on Youku. As a mainland-Hong Kong cooperation drama, the "Family Glory" series has been one of the most popular in the past two years. Although it is not as popular as "News Queen", it has satisfied many Hong Kong drama fans and dreamed back to the era of rich family grudge dramas. .
