Douban 

 

 

Ratings for the first two episodes were ~0.6 

Today should get higher ratings, average was 0.89 so I am guessing around ~0.75 for CSM52. It will take some time and positive word of mouth. 

Hoping that after leads r shown more.. We would get more ratings!! I m planning to watch all 4 episodes today raw!!

Actually many ppl aren't much interested over family dramas.. They like wuxia stuff.. Plus this yr hasn't been grt for dramas.. I m just hoping this drama doesn't let down ZLY coz her OGT also had grt views plus ratings..

I think, this will do better than OGT. I think it almost has 1 billion views and that is without counting iQIYI since they are not reporting views anymore and ZLY dramas always do better in iQIYI. 

Now I do prefer xianxias. This year I am so tired of palace dramas, but I do like historical dramas so at least for me this is the perfect timing for that.

Thanks for responding and giving me more knowledge of the title! @angelangie @thelonetraveller_18 @gleek49 @nnnju I love the fact that they use this title instead using MingLan's name. This is much more meaningful and memorable. 

 

I only have time to check out episode one and I enjoyed it so far. Nothing that make me want to 'fast-forward' or 'roll my eyes', the pacing, the cinematography, and the acting are all good so far. I can't wait to see them grow up but not impatiently lol

 

Btw, I saw two versions in YouTube, the TV version and the Uncut version. So they will both end on 73 episodes? Because I think the TV version have uneven timing for each episode and it is a bit confusing. I assume the difference is just the way they cut the length of the episodes and not actually cutting out scenes. Which version are you all watching?

The acting of all actors/actress are good. I just regret that c-ent is very competitive and malicious. The anti-fans if zly attack douban score yesterday and give only one star in the premise that zly's acting is not good. It is ridiculous as Zly only appeared in the last 20 minutes of 4th episodes last night. Plus they also bombard zly's superspeaking with all kinds of posts concerning other actor/actress. Very childish.

Ignore them. ZLY always gets stuff like this when her dramas come out like every other popular celeb.

Today ratings went up, ep. 4 broke 0.9 so the drama is slowly doing better. As long as the plot is good and we have a good drama that is all that matters.

At the moment, there should be no difference between the two, but Hunan TV sometimes cut scenes or rearrange them. The episodes have uneven timing because on weekends, they get 20 or 30mins episodes to make way for variety show that air that day. I don't think they will cut a lot for a ZLY drama since she tends to bring in lot of viewers. The DVD version is the "uncut" version, the one that was intially passed, and one that gets shown oversea...I think (?).

 

8.2 on douban is pretty good start, ZLY + Daylight + book fans should bring in fair amount of ratings and word of mouth, as long as they keep up the good adaptation, which they shooould.
