Editorial Reviews

Audio: Mandarin with ENGLISH Subtitle (Chinese sub is non Removable). The story begins with Xiao Shi day dreaming on her balcony, wishing for a successful love. In her dazed state, she accidentally knocks her mug over the edge, which then lands and bounces off the front of pop sensation He Qun's sportscar, when he happened to be driving past. This marks the beginning of their intertwined destinies.

Having been practically hogtied in front of the TV to watch this by my 22-year old daughter, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of Smiling Pasta. Whilst actually intended for teens to young adults, this grandma really enjoyed the Taiwanese TV series.

You need to keep in mind that Chinese/Taiwanese people laugh at themselves and they love a good joke. And there is a lot of importance attached to "saving face". In this lightweight series they find a lot to laugh about and the mixed messages, misunderstandings and general chaos that ensue from saving face are wonderful. I found myself laughing out loud on several occasions. Of course, this is about as embarrassing to admit as it would be to say I played with barbies last week. Fortunately, I have a grandson, so I shan't be subjected to THAT indignity.

I digress...

Unlike a lot of froth out there, it's an all ages show with some depth and character to it. Personally I did not find either the language or the subtitles a problem, but they do move quite fast, so you may find it irritating if you are a slow reader, or get distracted by having the original soundtrack in the background. The soundtrack is brilliant, and is almost a character on its own, giving voice to usually voiceless items such as expressions and feelings. Really great fun!

I have seen this show probably a good dozen or more times over the last several years (Yes, I do watch too much television ^_^) - as an avid watcher of Asian drama in Korean, Taiwan, Japan and such, I'd have to say that this is one of my top favorite series. It fits well with the Asian feel of shows and is quarky and simply fun to watch - a rather sweet love story as well.

A pervious reviewer said it was a bad knock off of the Korean Show 'Full House' - this simply is not the case (I even went and watched both of the series again just to make sure I remembered this correctly - If it was supposed to be a knock off of Full House, which I highly doubt that rumor is true, I wouldn't bother trying to compare the two. The two storylines are so different it's not even funny.

Many Asian dramas revolve around male rock stars (like Smiling Pasta), movie stars (Like Full House), mega rich heirs and such, that is where the similarities end. Don't get me wrong, Full House is a great show but that reviewer obviously is not much of an Asian drama watcher if they are comparing this series as a bad knock off to that one because they are nothing alike. (Sorry but I felt this needed to be clarified for those looking for an informed opinion based on someone who watches these types of dramas on a regular basis).

However, for the show itself, I have converted many non-Asian drama fans into Asian drama fans off of this show alone - you can find it for free viewing on several fanbased websites. It has a unique feeling, characters and storyline that is rather refreshing and fun. A bit more goofy than the usual seriousness found in these types of dramas, without getting too out of hand to make it painful to watch as some tend to get when they try too hard.
