Thanks @Luxi -- I will file that away for when I return to Texas later this winter. I always get homesick for China during those stays.

@abcdefg, this series will instantly take you back to China, no matter where you are in Texas. It gets quite mawkish in parts, but I am still enjoying it, especially the underlying message of  'common humanity' with the mortal enemy, and the Manchurian scenery.

I have greatly enjoyed it.   I think all a ting very good and I am now a fan of Sun Li who plays the Japanese auntie so beautifully.   It has an authentic feel of the times portrayed.  It’s slow pace makes a real impression.

"Nirvana in Fire 2" (琅琊榜之风起长林), recently aired in Chinese TV, is now available to view in Viki. It has been subtitled in several languages, including English, French, Spanish and Roumanian. The first episode in Viki is also enabled for 'Language learning'. 

 

Series 2 is independent from Series 1 (also in Viki), it has different characters and actors and takes place at a later time.The main link between the two is Lanya Hall. It doesn't seem as original as Series 1, but it seems well done and the plot is interesting (I'm only on episode 4, can't vouch for the rest).

Meanwhile Amazon has added a big bunch of miscellaneous Chinese videos to their Prime offering. It really is a ridiculously mixed lot: movies (including Cultural Revolution relics, like The Red Detachment of Women - anyone for nostalgia?), TV series, documentaries, language learning and taichi videos and who knows what else. There are a few gems among this lot, to find what's on offer: search for 'Chinese' in Prime Videos.
