It Wasn’t A Sequel To Begin With

My 3rd novel wasn’t meant to be a sequel to the 2nd novel in the first place. Then something happened. Characters began to beg to be included in the story. Thus, a sequel was born.

Drama Review: Death Investigation Extension 2 – D.I.E.2

Submitted by on February 19, 2010 – 14:35No Comment

Rated as my favourite drama series of 2008, D.I.E. is back again with a second season. And this time, there is no disappointment at the end of the 25 episodes. There is only addiction.

Synopsis from MuShieMoShiu
Members of the once dissolved “Death Investigation Extension (D.I.E.)” have been called together. Yue Chi Long (Kwok Chun On), Cheung Ching Yee (Kwok Jing Hung) and other team members are all gearing up to crack unsolved cold cases with their usual out-of-the-box style. Ying Ching Ching (Kwok Sonija) has been looking forward to this for a long time. She is so excited that she even brings along her baby son to work! Long is not happy about this, yet he has no choice but to take turns with other team members to take care of the baby, bringing about rounds after rounds of hilarious episodes. Ching discovers by chance that her son has inherited Long’s supernatural powers. In order to prove to Long she is as capable as him as an inspector, Ching makes use of their son’s powers in investigating. Long is even more displeased, and their relationship has suffered a great deal. Later, Long finds out that a bad guy is using Ying Pui Pui (Nancy Wu), Ching’s younger sister, to attack Ching and their son. Long gets ambushed and put in a coma, during which he has an out-of-body experience. Seeing that his wife and son are in danger, his spirit takes over Yee’s body, unexpectedly resulting in…

… a drama totally worth watching! The chemistry between Sonija Kwok and Kwok Chun On is back to burning like fire as they resume their roles as husband and wife in D.I.E. Again. As lovey-dovey as they can be, it’s clearly expressed that each of them are individuals whom have a personality of their own. Their characteristics and personalities were not compromised to ensure that their characters are credible. You’ll still see them going against one another when it comes to investigation styles, and yet lovingly in love when they are back home after working hours. This is a true reflection of what true love is supposed to be: Never compromise who you are to be with the person you love.

One new actress you should keep your eyes on in this series is Jessie Sum, who played the role Icy in the drama. She must be new in the entertainment industry because I don’t think I have seen any TVB series with her in it. She is this sharp beautiful looking girl who totally rocks in her character in this series. She can carry the serious character perfectly charmingly, be a flirty girl, or simply be Miss Beautiful. Yet, she is so attractive in all the different roles required of her. A TVB potential to be looked out for, definitely.

The other actor whom I am fancy of is the handsome smart looking Stephen Huynh. He played the role Pierre in this series. Very charming in his white suit. Overall, the entire cast is a brilliantly put together harmony. I’ve never watched a drama series in which I love every character in the show. There’s always bound to be someone I dislike in a series. But with D.I.E. Again, I’m in love with every single character. Probably it’s because all the actresses and actors involved are playing roles which are totally different from their usual ones, and they actually successfully brought out the essence of each character. A job well done indeed!

Thank you, producer, for not allowing the awful ending in the first season to repeat in D.I.E. Again. In fact, for this series, the ending is perfectly superb because it displayed that the scriptwriter has given much thought into the entire 25 episodes. I love this very much. And I could watch it all over again if there is nothing else on my waiting list.

For all you TVB lovers out there, this is a must watch! So what are you waiting for, grab the DVDs and popcorn and start investigating through D.I.E. Again!
