Triumph In The Skies 2 - 衝上雲霄2 (ep. 5)
Plus 2 for the juxtaposition (pun intended).
(I feel like I have to explain this: Jayden who is a men are adored by the girls, Summer who is a tomboyish girl and adored by the guys who think they are girls.)

See, this resembles more like a dispute between ex-lovers than siblings… #awkward

I only knew Myolie’s character is his sister because I was behind and my dad spoiled it for me. So I knew about their relationship when I watched these scenes and I thought it was eerie as fuck. Don’t get me wrong, I like how the writers built it up and purposely misled the audience (like a billion other sitcom plots) thinking that Summer is his ex-girlfriend not his estranged sister. At the same time, plus 2 to Jayden for character consistency, because if anybody would treat their sister like a girlfriend, it’s Jayden. But I was cringing so hard inside, like WOULD YOU STOP HITTING ON YOUR SISTER?! #SecondhandEmbarrassment
Related:1) They were together in an alternative universe.2) Every time a man says this to somebody, a star falls off somewhere…

Samuel Tong’s character flaw has always been his lack of 人情味 (sensitivity isn’t quite exactly the word but that’ll do), and it’s more evident here when put against Jayden who is more popular and approachable but flirtatious (I think this is his character flaw), what this scene made me realize was why Sam’s insensitivity wasn’t as pronounced in the first series. 
It was because of Vincent.
I’m probably slow on this but I have been so annoyed at Jayden’s character that I have been too focused on seeing them as rivals. Vincent was a lot of like Jayden — or Jayden is a lot like Vincent, actually.
Vincent was the popular one while Sam was the quiet one, Vincent could call Sam out on his stubbornness because they were best friends, but without Vincent smoothing Sam’s edges by his side, Jayden and Sam’s personality come as a more obvious clash. I especially enjoyed watching those moments when Sam couldn’t explain himself. #FrancisNgAppreciation
But yeah, here’s to Vincent (their bromance was the first that made an impression on me and sorta prompted the start of the blog #funfact)

I could totally relate — I don’t stalk, things just happen in front of me, totally.

Of course Samuel Tong would have a mock setup cockpit at his desk. Plus 1 for character consistency. And plus 1 for how physically uncomfortable he is when confronted annoyed by his brother.

Continuing this line of thought, a part of me wishes Myolie Wu isn’t in the show as another character. I have always disliked the “lookalike” plot. It’s so unnecessary.

Hey TVB, glad to know the musical tag is still relevant.

Plus 1 for the political commentary, and only one because Coco’s skepticism and the outcome (Sam threatens that they could only have him or microwave food) were too realistic and telling that I’m not sure how to even feel about the whole metaphor.

This scene is kind of really really fucking perfect. In every dimension. Plus 10 for execution and delivery and most importantly, CHARACTERS CONSISTENCIES (can’t stress this enough).
