Please enjoy this new weekly review series from Exiern reader Shan. ~STH
Episode 1: “You’d think the most you could lose for making a pass at the boss’s girlfriend is your job, wouldn’t you?”
OK, before embarking on this weekly blog covering the Chinese Web TV Series “Go Princess Go”, just a few links to things if you want to have a quick look at what you’re getting yourself into before just diving straight in (unlike our hero and look what happened to him).
Admittedly, this one may not make things very clear even if you speak and read Mandarin Chinese.
Congratulations to the makers of this trailer for the series that somehow makes it seem even more strange than it actually is. Still, this trailer is definitely worth seeing, despite its seeming incomprehensibility, just for those guys with the feathers though.
Hats off to this fan made trailer by Bree Chan, by the way (nb: where it says “turn to” probably should be “turn into”). This one might actually make things a bit clearer than the official one.
She also wrote excellent episode summaries which will be linked to every week as well. Well worth reading to clarify what’s been going on each episode and fill in any missed details, as what they lacked in budget they really made up for in a richly plotted story. With Chinese royal court politics involved, complexity is a given, hence recaps are a great help.
OK, on with the show.
We get thrown right into the thick of the action as three women speed towards their target, the man who wronged them all. One in a sports car, one on a motorbike and the other of the three down the modern freeways of China … on a horse. It’s less than a minute into a 35-part series and I’m already sold. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
