Netizens Rally to Take ‘Devil’s Disciples’ off Air
TVB’s new drama, ‘Devil’s Disciples’ averaged ratings of 31 points and peaked at 35 points during its debut week on the small screen. Such results are very satisfactory for television series that has aired for only week. But ‘DD’ has also attracted negative light as an online forum has begun an online email petition to make TVB discontinue airing it.
Since its first day on air, ‘DD’ has been accused of having plagiarised, being outrageous, having crude dialogue and bad special effects. On top of this, an online forum has a started a ‘one person one email’ rally, calling for TVB to immediately stop airing the series. In a few hours, the page had 2000 hits and 80 replies. But most of the netizens believed that the call for ‘DD’ to be taken off air was too extreme and the whole cause was worthless.
Those who started the stance believed that ‘DD’ should discontinue airing for 4 major reasons: 1. the numerous special effects were poor, 2. there was no evident line, the kung fu displayed varied from gold needles to drums, 3. worthless and poor jokes, 4. grammar of speech was poor thus being a bad influence to children. Many of netizens who replied admitted that the series featured many poor jokes but it is positive that people still find them funny and that this was not a reason for ‘DD’ to be taken off air. At there same time, there were many other threads in the forum that criticised ‘DD’, with ‘What is bad about DD?’ and ‘DD is rubbish?’ to name a few.
On the other hand, the message board at the TVB ‘DD’ official website was filled with some complaints from viewers, including some that mainly focused on Shirley Yeung, by saying that Bernice Liu and Sharon Chan being prettier than her and even saying that the former MHK is ugly! It is believed the reason why Shirley has become the receiver of all this criticism is because it is known that she would end up with Bosco Wong in the end and have a child and so, kicking out Bernice. Such result has angered Bernice fans and is making Shirley look bad.
