Our new daughter LOVES television. For the most part, this is not interesting to me–except for the amusement of her being like Orville–because I don’t speak the language here…but I’ve fallen in love with one of the shows, even without being able to understand it.
The show is like a live action anime. The costumes are cool the sets intriguing, the action filled with Oriental magic and wonder, with samauri spells and fairy girls who turn into potatoes when they are tired. (The first time I began to ask John "could you ask the guide the name of the show where a girl turns into a potato" I could not get through the sentence for laughter.) There are evil vampiresses, girls who turn into foxes, monkey king like guys and much more.
Also the characters are very engaging. There’s a main funny character I think of as the Chinese Xander and his female counterpart who goes "humph" in the cutest way. A noble fighting guy in white, a fat comedy side kick and, of course the fairy who turns into a potato.
The show was so delightful that I really wanted to know more, so we turned to the internet. It did not betray me.
The show is Chinese Paladin 3, based on an online video game. You can see some here: http://www.tudou.com/programs/view/qwcRbUHqm6c/
