So sad to see the end of such a visually symbolic era...sort of like bull fighting in parts of Spain. But the arguments against it are pretty valid as @Adora Tsang mentioned. Clearly the business interests were given more priority than quality of life with no downtown to escape from. I just ordered a neon Hand Made Dumpling Sign on Ebay for my living Room so neon can live on in spirit and trade without affecting anyone else.

I liked the more serious topics you seemed to tackle in season one... Budget cut for this season? I am disappointed in all of the HK stories in a row. Still a good show but noticeable drop off from last year.

The music you keep using for the Borders series is not only painful to hear in its composition, but also ridiculous in volume compared to the dialogue--the part that is IMPORTANT and NECESSARY. Your taste in indie music may be too distracting and painful, and that's your choice, but the volume levels need to emphasize the voices and make them heard. Otherwise, I have no incentive to watch your crap if I can't hear what you want to tell me. Borders isn't the only perpetrator of this terrible volume dynamic, but it is the worst. Please stop this. Believe it or not, I came to these videos for what you have to say, not for ear-grating crap that I didn't consent to or expect from the title or thumbnail.
