Cast: Felix Wong, Sam Lee, Kelvin Kwan, Adrian Wong, Kathy Yuen, Crystal Leung, Anita Chan, Janice Ting, Dominic Lam, Lo Hoi Pang,

Scriptwriter: Lau Choi Wan (Ghetto Justice), Director: Lau Shun On (A Step Into the Past)

Plot: A supernatural-themed detective series – however the ‘supernatural’ won’t be the traditional ghosts and spirits-theme that audiences are used to seeing. Rather, it will utilize ‘super’ scientific concepts as well as realistic methods to investigate a variety of mysterious, unusual cases. The series will revolve around the main character San Kei Yuen (Felix Wong) -- a former high-ranking police inspector who, after being traumatized by the mysterious death of his son, acquires the hidden ability to capture and enter other people’s subconscious, as he deeply believes that his son was actually murdered in the ‘inner confines of the subconscious’! At the same time, he starts to display signs of having a split personality and works hard to study about the ‘hidden subconscious’ in the hopes of one day finding his son’s killer. Each main character in this series will have some sort of ‘hidden ability’ that makes them different from other people. Even though each of them will have a ‘regrettable flaw’ and perhaps even be viewed by society as being ‘abnormal’ or ‘weird’, this does not affect their self-esteem. In fact, they are able to turn this ‘regrettable flaw’ into a ‘hidden ability’ and use it to help them solve many mysterious cases. (Translation by: llwy12)

I am really sick and tired of the Hong Kong government playing politics when it comes to granting broadcasting license to Ricky Wong's HKTV station ... he applied for the license to broadcast his own production television dramas back in 2009 but after four long years the government still refuse to grant it to him. TVB dominates Hong Kong television for forty-six years but as the long years go on ... TVB dramas has significantly decline in their qualities ... competition motivates progress ... it's time to give other local TV stations a chance to compete with TVB ... competition in television industry needs to be promoted, not to be prohibited.
