I very recently saw this, due to being a fan of Wang Kai after seeing him in The Disguiser & Lang Ya Bang. Great show; it has some funny moments and the layers of plots are very intricate. Anyone else who saw this before?

I took a look at this one yesterday and I didn't mind it at all. Wang Kai's Gongsun Ce plays the straight man to Zhang Duo's Bao Zheng which can be a lot of fun. Nice to see Wang Kai not being as stoney-faced as he normally is. He's even surprisingly comical. I quite like this Zhan Zhao too who seems to be De Cheng's answer to the Nightcrawler. I expect they're modelling this series after the popular Young Justice Bao series.

I won't keep going and set it aside for a rainy day. It's a lot of fun but the urge to marathon is great and I really shouldn't.

It certainly has a comic-booky, art deco feel to it a la Zach Snyder. I think I've probably watched too many detective shows because I managed to work out whodunnit during the third episode.

My only complaint is that Bao Zheng's face doesn't look dark enough. 

;)

Sheesh... what sort crappy ending was that? It was as bad as Young Justice Bao 3.

The subplots/separate arcs weren't bad, the bromance was great but that ending really took the shine off the show for me.

I know, right. The ending was horrible. It was literally the most cliche ending that could have happened.

I know! We all hate the ending! Because in the very beginning they planned to film 3-4 seasons, now it's gone. Plus the charater 孔雀王 is so 中二… Now my focus is all about 正泽's interaction and their funny moments xD.
