when a serie gets too long, it is hard to keep up the accuracy and good structure.

The Eastern Zhou Series has got a US release. Good thing is it is dual audio, on DVD & cheaper than the Hong Kong VCD release.

A few years ago (I think it was CCTV9) we here in Thailand were able to watch the series "Conspiracy In East" which was about the happenings in early -30's. It was mainly about Manchuria and the story of the two marshals. I found it very good but don't know if it's available on DVD or VCD

Han Wu emperor (汉武大帝)

秦王李世民 - Ugh... Not that accurate but... :g:

Ugh is right. I wouldn't dream of calling this series historical...or even particularly entertaining. Maybe if the actor who played Li Shi Min's elder brother played Li Shi Min himself I would've been more interested :haha:

Overall this series seemed rather lame, even just looking at it as pure entertainment.

So I admit I enjoy the increasing numbers of good-looking actors appearing nowadays. (Finally!) And yes, 严宽's on my list :haha:

But it's not just actor choice that bothered me. I do like Peter He as an actor; he's been pretty good in some things, but the way he portrayed Li Shi Min's character was just too cursory. But then again, I probably shouldn't have expected too much seriousness in the first place.

One quite enjoyable series (actually there are several)are about the Emperor Kang Xi who would travel in disguise around China to see what was really going on. He travelled with a court Monk and a eunuch who tried to keep him out of trouble. He also had an eye for the ladies. The series is fictional but is based on the real Kang Xi who did travel in disguise. Action and humor abound. Click on the link which will take you to one of the series and the go down the page to Other artists and click on Zhang Guo Li (Kang Xi)and you can find more Kang Xi series. :)

There is another chinese historical drama titled ''The Dynasty;set during between the Late Ming and Early Qing.
It is a good historical drama.The early episodes are about how was Wei Zhongxian's dominance of the Ming Government ended and the ascension of Emperor Chongzhen to te Dragon Throne.
