Gooo Gooo Gaa Gaaa! Ady! Van Ness! He's always smiling and he's everywhere! He's the guy selling breakfast. He's the janitor. He's the office boy. He's her lunch buddy. He's everywhere. And he plays with carrots! How cool is that! All hail Autumn's Concerto! And oh boy, he's by the far, the only person I've seen that carries a mop over their shoulder and can still look so cool. Oh, and Ady's little cute scream ~ahhhh! She's so pretty in this MV. Ahh~ they are so cute together! You might get diabetes from watching this MV because it's just soo sweet! Cuteness and sweetness overload~ this MV is so filled with love. I like very much. No. I love very much.
This is should totally be made into a drama. Maybe call it, The Strawberry and The Carrot in the Office.
Autumn's Concerto. [V]

There's a saying that goes: one man's trash is another man's treasure. What's a good drama to me might not be a good drama to you. Every drama addict (and non addicts) have their own standards in judging the quality of a drama.
I tend to look heavily at storyline, acting, and chemistry among the cast. Those three elements are most important to me when deciding whether a drama is good or not. Ironically though, they are not the first elements that attract me to a drama but two of three (storyline and chemistry) are key factors that determine whether I will continue a drama. I can forgive bad acting...depending on how bad it is.
The Celsius Estimate Theorem
Sadly, the amount of time we use to watch dramas is precious and limited. We simply don't have the time to sit through every single drama. We have to use our time wisely and choose the good dramas to watch. I'm sure every drama addict has their own way of choosing good dramas to watch. If you don't have one yet, that's ok! You can use the Celsius Estimate. The Celsius Estimate works 90% of the time and it estimates if the test drama has potential to be a "good drama".
Method of Execution (Go in order):
1) Watch the first two episodes: If you enjoy the first two episodes, keep going. Otherwise, proceed to step 2.
2) Watch the last two episodes: If you enjoy the last two episodes, then consider watching backwards or start watching from a few episodes back. Otherwise, if you hate the beginning and the you hate the ending, you'll probably won't like the drama anyway so move on to the next drama.
3) Optional: For more accuracy, choose a random episode in between the first two and last two episodes.
This method is no guarantee. You might miss a good drama or the test drama turns out to be a bad drama despite an awesome beginning and an awesome ending. But nevertheless, it will give you some kind of solid ground to stand upon.
So use and adjust at your own risk!
Thanks friend who forced me to realize the flaw of my theorem

How do people end up in jail and still be so happy? In fact, how do people end up in jail with the person who killed their friend and still be so happy? Only Law Ba, man, only the optimistic him.
Ghetto Justice's ending took a different route from regular TVB happy endings. It wasn't a random happy ending; it was a justified happy ending. PK killed Jing Jing and was sentenced 20 years for the crime. Wong See Fu forges evidence as part of her plan to land PK in jail but Law Ba claims responsibility for the forged evidence. Law Ba's lawyer license is revoked and he is sentenced to jail for 2 years. Although he is sentenced for a crime he didn't commit, he willingly goes as a form of repent for indirectly causing an innocent person's death 7 years ago. Wong See Fu realizes justice is more important than money and power and temporarily takes over Law Ba's "chamber". Maybe 7 years from now, See Fu will meet a long lost sister, who also happens to be a lawyer, but the sister does something wrong and See Fu takes responsibility for her just like Law Ba and willingly goes to jail as a form of repent for forging evidence. Justice is served even if it's late 7 years.
Ghetto Justice in its entirety is very good. The storyline, the acting, the chemistry, this show has it all. The cases were refreshing, intriguing, and not very long. The court dialogues, especially Law Ba's dialogues, were worth putting in my quote book! My most memorable dialogue was Law Ba's closing statement in the Accidental Death by Piece of Flying Glass case. What he said about accidents happening at any time, any where, to anyone was so full of persuasiveness. In terms of acting, Kevin nailed it! He nailed his role to the very core! I cannot imagine anyone else as a better Law Ba! Law Ba is Kevin's breakthrough role! And Sharon was also excellent as Jing Jing! I cried buckets when she died in Ah Dang's arm!!! And gosh, who can forget the chemical explosion between the four males (Law Ba, Ah Dang, Mike George, and But Jik). I loved the scene where Ah Dang took a video of Law Ba singing in the shower and Mike George secretly recording Law Ba's declaration of love. What awesome chemistry these four people have!
Overall, Justice Ghetto is a very good drama. It's number one on my list of TVB 2011 dramas followed by Only You. Kevin is on a roll here!
