What, when, where and who
This is a very good and emotional story about the lawyers.

There are lots of things going on in this story, and every character has its unique and touching background:
For Kenix, her story is the most emotional one, because her son was separated from her since he was one month old... With all the pain about divorce and loosing her son, she still fights back and finally got her son back.

- Love Factor
Kenix Kwok
As usual, Kenix is really good in the series. Her performances are very promising and touching, especially when her character has a sad background. Her character is also really strong, who went through lots of problems, but she learned her way to be more and more stronger througout the entire story

Michael Tse
Two thumbs up for Michael's performances, everytime I see him, I just want to laugh, his character is kind of dumb, but very funny. I loved his fake teeth, and the way he tries to talk with those teeth!

Best Scenes
Here comes the list:
1. Everytime you see Michael by himself, or with others
2. Kenix's final speech to fight to get her son back, very emotional scene, get ready your tissues!
3. When Kenix and Hacken are in love, they are great couple!
4. When Patricia asked Stephen why did he protects her all the time, and they hug ~.~


- The Performances
Great performances by every single character is the story, especially for Kenix and Hacken, who are a great pair by the way. I totally loved their chemistry as they went through so many problems.

As Stephen's first TVB show after he left ATV, he had a small role in this series, not as promising as in Burning Flame II's role. But, I still enjoyed his performance.

- The Storyline
I think this series is more about each character's lives and the people surrounding them. It's not only about the lawyers and their cases, in fact, I didn't pay too much attention to the cases, I was more moved by each character's background...

- Worth Renting?
Yes for everyone who likes drama, and emotional stories. If you are expecting some interesting cases, then no. For all the Kenix, Hacken fans, this is a must see!
