Season 1

Eloquent Ji Xiao Lan
  • Broadcast year: 2001

Synopsis

Based on a real person in history, Ji Xiao Lan tells the story of a brilliant scholar during the Qing Dynasty, a high official under Emperor Qian Long. Ji Xiao Lan, the righteous scholar, is basically the foil of the 'evil', greedy official He Shen. The plot of the series revolves around the issues that the Qing Dynasty's China deals with, and makes some thinly-veiled points about today's modern governments (or actually any governments ever) and the corruption that sprouts.

In general terms, Ji Xiao Lan stands up for the people's rights, and He Shen supports corruption, for lack of better ways to classify these two characters. In actuality, they represent a whole spectrum of humanity, and are neither all good or all bad. There's a lot of humor in this series, playing with words, plotting, deception and fighting when the Emperor goes into the country incognito. Several different stories and issues are examined, though all are connected loosely overall.

Synopsis

The wise scholar Ji Xiao Lan, who shares the people's worries, has an ongoing mental and verbal battle with the seemingly gentlemanly, but actually influential and corrupt official He Shen. He enjoys the battle immensely, which neither is clearly winning or losing. With Emperor Qian Long's sometimes deliberate, and sometimes unintended sowing of dissension, Ji Xiao Lan and He Shen rack their brains restlessly in order to beat each other.

The Bronze Teeth III comprise six stories: "The Beauty Fight", "The Fake Truth and the True Fake", "Qian Long as a Street Performer", "The Cunning Plot", "The Rouge" and "The Dragon and Tiger Fight." They vividly reveal the power struggles in the Qing imperial court with mirth, laughter, anger and curses.
