Personal Note: A number of artistes in this series actually has experience in the police force. For example, Joe was a G4, Dominic was a police cadet, and Tsang Sau Ming was an auxiliary cop. Looking forward to this! :D

Jessica was supposed to cut her hair, but producer Lam Chi Wah said that it wasn't necessary.

The person who I had mentioned would be guest-starring on my Cbox is in here, and that person is Ma Ming!!!! Ha ha.... Love JJ for confirming Ma Ming's participation! :D

  4. I think Jessica should really cut her hair to give a fresher image and to allow audience to see a different character! She's had this long hair in several series already and her last action role in Matter of Custom with WongHei had a similar ponytail look! Don't know why Jessica's image for her series doesn't seem to change as much compared to other actresses. It's quite boring. Think last time she had short hair was in the 90s.

  5. In "The Drive of Life", Jessica had short hair but in the begining, she did use the technology to make her her longer and in the last episodes, her hair was short. Jessica has cut her hair usually but we don't have a chance to see her in series. In this series, Jessica actually cut her hair and the producer said that it's not necessary.

    I think poor to Jessica because under Tommy's side, he doesn't have too many actress so Jessica always his first choice in grand production. And the most important thing is the script writer under his side is not as goo as Cat's one.

  6. To Anonymous:

    Yes, Mandy and Nadia do resemble each other.

    To sport3888:

    I don't think it's a big deal, as there is a strict image for this profession.

    To Alec Nguyen:

    Don't find the scriptwriters on Catherine Tsang's side to be better. Tommy Leung's scriptwriters excel in police related dramas and comedies, while Catherine's series deal with enlightenment and are family-oriented.

  7. "The production cost will be 30 percent more than the budget of a typical series."

    Maybe that's why the series is only 13 eps. long.

  8. Jessica looks better and great with short hair or medium lenght as she current gets now. She does not fit or looks older with long or curly hair. It is right decision that she had her hair cut in short for Tiger Cubs. She looks great quite fit in madame Chong role in the series.
