It Runs in the Family

Classic!

Sean Lau and Stephen Chow, the one and only time they are co-starred, ever. This is also the last TV show Stephen was in before he moved onto movies.

This is a tale of two long-lost brothers, played by Sean and Stephen, and how they reunited. The lines are witty, and many of the classic Stephen Chow comedy can be found. Sean Lau playing the straight man? Priceless.

It is so hard to imagine how a show with such serious Chinese and English titles is the beginning of Stephen Chow’s long journey to his unique style of comedy. This show’s got all the big guns: Stephen Chow, Jacqueline Law, Yammie Lam, Francis Ng, Ng Man Tat…just to name a few.

This is also the time where Stephen Chow met his long time director Lee Lik Chi, with follow up movies such as the Flirting Scholar, Love on Delivery, From Beijing with Love, God of Cookery, The Lucky Guy and Sholin Soccer.

The lines in this TV show is classic, the beginning of Stephen Chow brand comedy:

不如我地坐低飲啖茶,食個包,然後慢慢傾呢?How about we sit down and talk over tea and a bite to eat?

It does not look like much, but with the correct context, or the lack of, will make you roll on the floor and laugh out loud.

The theme song is also loads of awesome with under-the-radar singer David Lui, and lyrics that still speaks volumes by Poon Wai Yuen.
