I’ve just started watching Strange Hero Yi Zhi Mei on YouTube and I have to say I’m really enjoying it so far. Despite the odd title, this is a good old fashioned swashbuckling action series about a Robin Hood type character in old China that seems to be an adaptation of a Chinese comic book. The tragic but gifted hero and his three assistants do their best to right wrongs and kick the butts of scheming officials and other villains using their good ole WuXia martial arts skills.
Having seen a few Chinese TV series before, I’d have to say that the acting and production values of this one are pretty high (even considering it was made in 2010) and overall the series is very well put together. The whole thing has been subbed in English, so it’s an easy watch and each episode ends with a cliffhanger of sorts so expect to be dragged in and find yourself racing along with these four before you know it!
