Have you ever notice there are some things in a
TVB series will ALWAYS happen, and ALWAYS happened in some way? Well, the following statements I am sharing with you is to
put those most-likely-to-happen-things into a formula, which I called the TVB formula...
THE LOVE STORY
This section is where you can find most of the
Formula # 01: The couples will most likely to go through the following stages to form an excellent relationship
who hate each other --> Realized misunderstood each other --> Become great friends who support each other --> Begin
to have feelings for one another --> Falling in love together
# 02: The break ups
The couples will have at least one break up, and then get back together.
For the ones who will
not get back together, the most repeative reason is: You and I just don't fit, and I am in love with someone else, sorry...
# 03: Leading actress and a supporting actor
If the lead actress is going to marry a supporting guy, it is often not
successful, and the lead actor will most likely to go to her wedding and fight her back
Formula # 04: The third factor
There will always and always someone
in between the couple.
Most of the time, two brothers (or two best friends) will falling love with the same girl
Formula # 05: The deadly disease
If the guy or the girl had a deadly
disease, he or she will most likely to hide it from the other person. Or, just make up some stupid reason to break up the
Formula # 06: The gifts
The first gift a lead actor gave to a lead
actress is always something stupid, cheap, but memorable
Formula # 07: Supporting actress and a leading actor
If a supporting
actress is in love with the lead actor, no such luck for her, the lead actor is only going to treat her as his little sister.
If she is lucky enough, she will found someone else, who is always there for her, take care of her, willing to marry her.
If she is unlucky enough, she will die because of the lead actor
Formula # 08: Two actress and an actor
Two girls in love with one man,
in ancient times, they all get together. In modern times, one is going to die or marry someone else, or just left
Formula # 09: The look alike
There will be a possible someone else
who looks just like the lead actress or actor
Formula # 10: The airport
This is the place where the lead actor FINALLY
realized how important the lead actress is to him
Formula # 11: To get the lead actor's love
If the lead actress is in
love with the lead actor, but he is in love with someone else, the lead actress will most likely to help the lead actor and
that someone else to be together. However, it will not succeed, and the lead actor will realized he does not love that someone
else, but in love with the lead actress, what a great way to get a guy! But, don't try this at home, this only happens in
a TV series!
Formula # 12: Lost memory and stay in coma
Often times, there will
always be someone who lost his or her memory, so that he or she will totally forgot their love ones. The love affair has to
start all over again, but he or she will recover their memory somehow, so please do not gave up! Other times, someone is going
to hit by a car, and stay in coma forever, who knows when he or she will wake up, but please be patient, they will wake up!
Formula # 13: Always good at the beginning
villains do not born with cold blood, there will be something or someone turns them mad and drives them crazy. So, they blame
on that something or someone for their behavior
Formula # 14: The brothers
If you are a guy, and you got a brother,
better watch out! He will most likely to become a villain, because he hates you, he thinks you get everything he is suppose
Formula # 15: The best friends
Best friends don't last longer, be careful
about your love affair, don't get your best friend's boyfriend. He or she will be very mad at you, and come to hurt you!
Formula # 16: Bad endings
If the villains died, they don't die good,
their death scenes are not memorable. If they did not die, they are most likely to go to jail, and become a better man, OK,
who care?! You tried to hurt me, now you are a good person? Forget it!
THE LONG SERIES
Formula # 17: There are more than 40
Formula # 18: Stupid beginning
Basically, most of the long series have
a really dragging beginning, all the love relationships are messed up. Everything seems to be stupid, then, all the sudden,
the real story begins
Formula # 19: The turning point
Whenever someone becomes a hateful
villain, that makes the whole series more and more interesting, and grab everyone's attention, "hmm... this series rocks"
Formula # 20: Death scenes
Yes, you will see lots of people die, one
after another, get use to it
Formula # 21: Stupid ending
They either end the series with too many
people in it, or only has the leading actor and leading actress in it. Most of the endings are stupid, which you will hate.
