Swipe Tap Love - Review

 Series: Swipe Tap Love
Eps: 20

Main Leads: Raymond Wong, Priscilla Wong, Elaine Yiu, Vincent Wong
Producer: Andy Chan Yiu Chun

I really didn't expect this series at all. Honestly, I was away from my blog and from TVB for so long that I have no idea what was going on. I didn't know what new series were coming up, I didn't know what series were airing. TVB world has been out of my loop and I didn't know anything about it. So I definitely did not know about this series at all. I came across an commercial or a picture of this (don't remember) and I thought it was one of those TVB ads about phones. But then I was done with this semester and gotten bored so I decided to pick up some TVB series again and I saw this. I thought it was just a commercial, but it was a series. To be honest, I didn't like this series in the beginning. I kept questioning myself "what am I watching?" but I kept with it because I was so bored at home and wanted something to keep me occupy.

Reasons why I didn't like it were simple: 
  1. I lost interest of TVB 
  2. Kaki Leung's character really annoyed me 
  3. The pace was kinda slow 
and I want to say Priscilla was leading this, but that's really not a reason lol. I was surprise that she is leading this and not Elaine. Leung Kaki's character really annoyed me in the series, but I'm so glad that later on in the series her character had tone down a bit and not as annoying. And the pace kinda picked up later on. But yes, as I watched on, I grew to like this series. I really had enjoyed watching it and I liked how they inserted the songs to this. It fits so well with this series.

I'm glad that I had stuck with this series and watch till the end. This series is something really fresh, its refreshing and new. It's something that we all can relate to and its realistic as well. In today's generation, all of us, especially us youngins love to play with our phones. Always messaging and always have our phones on us. And always expecting a message from friends and someone. Its true isn't it? LOL. But anyways, I felt that this series really relates and its realistic as well. Something that we can relate too. I also like the how the romance developed, its realistic and it taught us lessons. But overall this whole series taught us something. The quotes used in the series were something that we can think about, something that we all can relate too. They were really good quotes and I love how they inserted quotes here and there. I especially like it when series gives us good life quotes. As I was watching this, I was thinking about these quotes and I was also thinking how this series relates to my own life. That was one thing I really liked about this series.

Memories are inevitable, and each characters in this series has memories that were painful, bitter, and bought tears to them.  Each of them performed their emotions and thoughts really well. I can feel their pain through the screen. It was a job well done from each actors. And to match the feel of each scene, I liked how they inserted songs into it. It was a throwback and I really enjoyed listening to those songs. I am glad that they were able to let go of their past memories and found happiness. 

I thought that each actors portrayed their characters really well. Especially Love the little girl. She is so adorable and fill with cuteness. One thing I thought it was weird is that she doesn't missed her mom at all, maybe because she is much closer with her father? Anyways, they all carried their characters out really well and I enjoyed watching them. One thing I really want to mention is Elaine. I thought she carried her role out the best! Her crying scenes has improved a lot and I felt her pain. She improved a lot too and I hope that one day she will be able to lead! 

Overall, I really did enjoyed this series and I really did like how everything came together. It wasn't rushed or anything, it was simple and can relate to. I want to re-watch this series again even though I just finished it last week. I really like the feel of this series, its something different and its really refreshing to watch. Maybe because I can relate to it and those quotes really had me thinking. Well anyways, yes I would rewatch this again.. maybe I'm going to watch it after I post this up LOL. 

Yes, definitely, you would not regret it! Trust me.

@Cindy - yea you're right. That is one thing that is pretty annoying. They repeat the word way too much!
