Last week is not a good week for TVB dramas, in general. It's latest grand production, The Gem of Life, fell 3 points for its ratings for the second week of airing, averaging at 28 points. It's other Anniversary Series, When Easterly Showers Fall on the Sunny West (helmed by Liza Wang, Charmaine Sheh and Joe Ma) also failed to shine, averaging at 26 points.
Hopefully these 2 dramas will fare better in the coming weeks. I, personally have not watched When Easterly Showers Fall on the Sunny West but I caught the first 8 episodes of The Gem of Life. Somehow there wasn't any engaging scenes/plot that is making me want more of the show. The first 8 episodes are just laying down the foundation for more things to come, like an introduction. Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying the series, just not at a maddening pace. Maybe the plot is moving slowly and smoothly, after all there will be 82 episodes.
