Even though “Catch Me Now” is nicely done with twisting plots, but the audience are able to spot many goofs and errors. On May 6th episode [12] Idy Chan [played Yung Yung] borrowed from Sherming Yiu [played Pinky] the thermos for Chinese medicine, later she gave to Fala Chen [played Minnie] to drink, it became a different one. May 8th episode [14], Lee Sing Cheong [played old Cheng Sir] was wearing khaki cap and caught daughter Yoyo Chen [played Yan-yan] in the bar, but when they confronted each other at the street alley, he wore the blue cap.

[Hm… I’ve noticed the media pick on Idy and criticize her a lot lately, and many young viewers out there aren’t familiar with her voice and they “hate” her. How vain of them.

Anyways, I noted the thermos goof too, but I also found goofs that have to do with technology, such as (1) Johnson Lee (BT) came to Sharon Chan (Kong Kiu) office to borrow a program or something, and she gave him a floppy disk. You can’t even store anything on a floppy now, even a photo takes twice the size the floppy’s space, and who uses floppies these days? (2) When Koni Lui (Cheung Long-leg crab) was watching if Idy’s going to report the police on Damian, she didn’t wear a bluetooth earpiece nor a handfree nor hold a phone , how the heck she communicated with BT or Jack? (3) While they’re in the van on the way to rob the diamond necklace, BT’s laptop was showing a simple music CD player program, which supposed to be a sophisticated tool for voice alterating.

Of course, there’s no way to have a film production goof-free of errors and bloopers, even with big budget Hollywood flix, people can still find goofs. And of course every TVB work was done in a very short time frame, and “Catch” was finished in merely less than 6 months. Shooting started around October 2007, wrapped up around late December 2007, and finally aired just less than 4 weeks ago. Besides those mentioned above, many scenes are cut differently from promo clips & actual ones. Since Jack wears sunglasses so often, and it’d be fun if I can find the camera crew or someone not in the series mirroring via the specs.]
