I still cannot move on from The Untamed, keep rewatching the BTS. Really hope we can get fun BTS from pillow book too, Tencent really spoiled me with The Untamed BTS :sweatingbullets:

My favorite :lol:

 

Hmmm..i just can't with the untamed. The GCI is so stupid that it's killing me slowly :joy: they changed the story too much for my liking.. whyyyy, whyyyyy, when it's such an amazing novel :dissapointed_relieved: i don t want gay scenes, but stick with the plot.. what is that stupid yin metal and other things they changed :unsure:. Meeeh..i stoped around ep 20, read the novel again and now i am debating whether should i continue the drama or not.

Yup, I dont like how they make Wei ying weaker/less evil. The only thing that keep me going is the lead chemistry :sweatingbullets: 

I'm quite shocked with how big The Untamed is but the bugdet is small (20 million?) Anyone know TMOPB's or Pillow Book's budget?

Maybe you could check the animation? The fight scene is better and there is no Yin iron/metal~

 

Part 2 :lol:

I will stick with season 2 of the animation..better this way. Hmm..i don t know the budget for pillow book, but i think tencent invested more money than in the untamed. At least this is what i get from the teaser.

True, the CGI was lame and the fighting scene was meeeh, but the story line was quite good. I think that 'yin metal' plot was acceptable as "collecting chopped off body parts" most likely won't pass the censorship board anyway -_- I kinda like the drama better than the novel because they compile the flashback parts in one go instead of going back and forth like in the novel.

Not much costume drama lately, I'm running out of things to watch :sweatingbullets:

Try Longest day in Chang'an, Love and destiny and Novoland. I am watching now Longest day in Chang'an and i am mesmerized. I think it's one of the best chinese dramas ever made. The Douban rating is 8.4, and for Love and destiny 8.0. Can't wait to watch LAD and Novoland, but I am waiting both of them to be subbed completely.

 

After we finish watching these ones, i don't know what we will do till December, considering the 100 days ban :weary: maybe watch some dramas from that recommended drama list, but to be honest i find only one appealing. sigh...hard days indeed ahead of us :confounded::tears:

I've watched Longest Day in Chang'an already. The story line was not bad, it got nice cinematography. But it is about that specific 24 hours only,  not much closure.

I'm waiting for L&D and Novoland to be fully subbed before I can start watching. 

I'd just finished watching Princess Silver. I'm gonna look around for something light/comedy to neutralize my mood :(

 

I'm on break until December, so I have lots of free time to catch up cdrama. I hope Pillow Book will be available by then *fingers crossed*

What do you guys think about this?

For ancient/historical dramas I think 40 is not enough, but for modern dramas 16-20 is more than enough, Our glamorous time is 50 eps and I couldn't get past eps 19 :sweatingbullets:

Yes you are right!!! But their timing is less than k drama na that's why their episodes are more than 20:lol: I think 25-30 is a good no. Of episodes to complete a series

Hmm...i think for fantasy and historical dramas 40 ep is not enough, just like u said. Though ashes of love could have finished in 30-40 ep, nirvana in fire also, longest day in chang'an also etc. The only fantasy dramas i felt to be not long enough were TMOPB and Journey of Love. TMOPB ended perfectly..not even one episod i felt it was draggy. I hope now that this regulation will not affect Pillow book....i want the whole story, even if it's 70 ep, not some chunks of it glued together in 30-40 ep:joy:

It depends. When the Drama has many sidestories and characters like TMOPB then it is okay. But even with Fantasy Dramas that is rare. I wouldn't mind the cut but there should be exeption for complex stories. Proably that would give us better scripts in future.
I don't think Pillow Book has enough "meat" for a very long Drama but if they make changes wisely like in TMOPB then I would like to be surprised.

Yup, Ashes of love is too draggy for me but to cut it from 63 to 40 eps is still really pushing it, maybe 50ish? NIF is still okay for me because of the politics and scheming. TMOPB maybe could do with 50 eps if they cut Xuan nu and Su jin's screen time LOL. Lets hope Pillow book aired before this regulation become official :sweatingbullets:

First off oh my goossshhhh Bai Gun Gun is too adorable for words!! I didn't think they had anymore of these to churn out :love:

Secondly... totally agree with Ashes of Love being too long, there were definitely times that I was about to drop it because there was a lot of unnecessary filler/ useless scenes
Also agree with cutting Xuan Nu and Su Jin screen time hahaha, I would've loved to replace a lot fo Xuan Nu parts with more Ye Hua x Bai Qian lovey dovey moments tehe:lol:
The thing with Chinese dramas are the complexity of the stories, a lot of arcs and whatnot especially in historical dramas...
If there has to be a cap 50ish is ok, but I feel like it really depends on the story (it would have to be a case by case scenario)
For Pillow Book, I'm hoping they'll be able to fit everything in 60 episodes because they are condensing 2 whole books in to one drama (plus adding a human world arc)

When I watched Our Glamorous Time, I felt that it would be perfect if they had stopped at episode 27.  They used too many screen time to develop the love story for side couples. 

For me, I usually binge-watch full episodes so I tend to lose interest at around ep30.

 

3L3W (TMOPB and PB) need longer air time because they need to tell 3 stories of 3 different worlds. 

Anything with complex story lines can maybe divide it into Season 1, Season 2 if necessary.

 

Modern drama 25, historical/fantasy drama 50.
