Why do they do that?
So you see E1, it looks great. Then 3 min. into E2, the writers take a cheap route with the script. If you suspect something isn't right about the circumstances of a death, and you have an even more suspicious voicemail from the deceased, why would anyone give up that cell phone to a foreign country's police? This is what's wrong with too many of the series today. They have a good premise, then they write trite and stupid things into the script. We'll try to get beyond this cheap move by the writers/director, but this really is a turn off when this soon into the series they pull a high school stunt like this.

Slow. Painfully slow. This series is a slot-filler to take up time.
Guys, Guys, Guys at Amazon Video...C’mon!! I get you’ve got time slots to fill. I understand...but good God almighty! To do that, you’re taking something that would make a great 2 hour video and turning it into an excruciatingly painful series...that moves so slowly that watching grass grow seems fast paced and energetic. Also, seriously bad take to start episode 1 with half a dozen side stories. I know, I know...you gotta fill that time up with something but for crying out loud...how dumb do you think your customers are???

Too slow paced with real life dim dark dreary scenes
Just too slow paced, rolling out the plot clues. Totally not a fan of films going for real life shots of dark rooms with one lamp on, where I can barely identify the actor and they capture the mood of the film. My mood is then bored.

Good blend of British / Chinese in a new crime-drama series.
Crime drama fans won't be disappointed; politics, corruption, murder, deceit... interesting setting and pacing, and I love a "good" Asian crime drama. For those who hate subtitles most of this is in the queen's English!

There's nothing better than a well developed and produced series to allow viewers to sink their teeth into.
The 2 male stars are accomplished and respected actors, and the plot is intriguing right from the start.

I'm 4 episodes in and won't be skipping through filler scenes that too many even good series' directors do to fill episode time; you know like long music laced stares, recapping prior scenes that take up 30% of each episode, and no blatantly gratuitous violence and sex (although it is PC there to a point with the 2 hip young Chinese ladies getting it on)
It's exciting enough and tastefully done. Thumbs up.
Edit: just finished the series. 100% Excellent story telling imo.

Green Hornet part 2 or White Privilege
I am so disappointed and annoyed with this series. It has a good premise and the actors did a superb job. However,
Jonah and David form a team of detectives to investigate the murder of a loved one in Hong Kong, but Jonah is a regular white guy that is outside of Britain for the first time and David is a native and former police officer and yet it is Jonah taking the lead on everything. He goes into places and screams at the locals, disrespects people left and right and gets away with it. He makes every significant finding and deciphers every clue. It is reminiscent of the Green Hornets where Bruce Lee had to take second fiddle to his white counterpart who was not even a martial art fighter. They should do a second season where a random Chinese guy goes to London and screams at the locals, insults the British police and then solves a murder before Scotland Yards officials can. It is just fair.

Intriguing But Dark
Quite an interesting premise for "White Dragon" with the plot twists and surprises that, unhappily, become somewhat too hard to swallow. But the problem with this production, as with many recent movies, TV specials on PBS or Netflix is that the films are way too dark. I don't mean that in the figurative sense but literally. Most of the scenes here as in many other production are shot in a dim light, which is all too annoying. This is supposed to impress the sophisticated viewer, but I assume it's a way of keeping production cost down since brighter scenes require powerful mechanical lighting that add to the production cost. How sad is that?! I was frustrated watching this series all in the dark, dim, and depressing screen, half the time confusing characters' faces. Shows how unsophisticated I am, though my eyes are getting a beating with all these new cinematic styling.

A great one to binge watch ...
Does anyone really know anyone? That's the central theme in this intriguing and unfolding mystery. I couldn't resist binge watching and even found the ending to be a satisfying one.

The sound track was also quite good and corresponded well to what was happening on the screen. I'd recommend you give it a go and see if it doesn't engage you enough to find it worth the binge.

recycled story; Simms is better than this
The mystery started out with great possibilities - but too quickly lapsed into some shlocky acting, stereotypes and less than normal, perfect acting from Jon Simms.
His name is why I watched, and I was disappointed as this was the weakest thing I've ever seen him in.
On the plus side - watch anything else with him in it, and you won't be disappointed.
