The lolz before 1997, the prophecy that came true

A lot of Villagers would probably never forget the 1990 TVB comedy show The Funny Half Show笑星救地球》that gave us 13 hours of lolz every Saturday since 6 January 1990. Apart from the lolz, if we watch the show again today, we can't help but figure how prophetic it was. The clip below told us how our Village lives would change after the 1997 handover to the Motherland. Sorry, our expat friends, you could probably only enjoy half of the lolz, as English subtitle only came after seven minutes to the clip; still I encourage you to watch it and tell us if you think this is what happened in this Village after 1997.

Listen to a heartfelt song about how Villagers felt around 1997, sang by hosts of the Show Mr Liu Wai-hung and Mr David Wu here.


  1. Great memories, Henry!! I think I saw that show when it was on repeat in 1994. I missed the original showing as I was in England at the time. Even though times have moved on, a lot of what was prediced still holds true, especially of what I've seen so far in the Mainland.

  2. I was looking for this information, thanks for put in this easy way, I mean in a easy way to understand it jajaja, well until the next time.
