A General, A Scholar And An Eunuch - 超時空男臣

Time-Travelling Officials
In late Ming dynasty, three courtiers — YUAN CHONGHUAN (Edwin Siu), ZUO GUANGDOU (Raymond Cho) and LI JINZHONG (Matthew Ho) — travel over four centuries’ time by accident and arrive in today’s Foshan. They run into FONG WAI-CHI, who is at the time looking for an undiscovered chef master. Meanwhile, they see on TV an actress looking very much like the missing crown princess GUO QIAN (Grace Wong), WAI-CHI fools them saying that she can arrange for them to see the actress in Hong Kong; since they are eager to find the crown princess, they rashly sign the employment contract with WAI-CHI and become the waiters and chef of WAI-CHI’s restaurant. It turns out what WAI-CHI wants is to rescue her restaurant’s business and reputation, which are going downhill, through JINZHONG’s extraordinary cooking skills. The three courtiers join the restaurant using their new names — WAN TAI-KWAN (Edwin Siu), FUNG YAT-BO (Raymond Cho) and LI SIU-TUNG (Matthew Ho) — and the restaurant becomes a popular “heart-throb” eatery in no time. They become so famous and the restaurant becomes so well-received that other catering groups in town have to launch a series of strikes using monetary means. With TAI-KWAN’s help, WAI-CHI overcomes the crisis, and an indescribable feeling has grown between the two. In the meantime, YAT-BO finds out about WONG YI-SAN’s (Grace Wong) secret while he is investigating her background and history; he even learns about the fate of them all through history books and faces a dilemma when the deadline to return to the Ming dynasty is approaching...

明朝萬曆年間,東宮太子朱常洛與大太監張誠在朝廷互相對衡。太子及後聽得欽天監的預言,決定派人將宮中魏姓太監斬殺。張誠見一眾門生被殺,密謀刺殺太子的未過門妻子郭倩(王君馨飾),藉此報復洩憤。


三子奇幻穿越時空來到現代

東宮都尉袁崇煥(蕭正楠飾)、侍郎左光斗(曹永廉飾)奉命護送郭倩進京,期間遇上東廠伏兵偷襲,眾人遁入附近一個神秘霧林躲避。張誠下令放火燒林逼令他們現身,郭倩於混亂間意外走失;崇煥、光斗則聯同隨行的御膳監小太監李進忠(何廣沛飾)走出霧霾,赫見眼前景物匪夷所思。原來他們穿越了時空,來到現代廿一世紀!

崇煥、光斗、進忠無奈地以現代人的身分重新展開人生,但他們終究是明朝古人,雖然一個武功精湛、一個智慧機靈、一個廚藝出眾,但老套的價值觀、對科技知識的一竅不通,令他們與現代人的生活格格不入,也因此鬧出不少笑話。


古代文人武將化身食店男神

香港菜館鳳鳴居生意每況愈下,負責人方惠芝(田蕊妮飾)為了振興家業,毅然北上訪尋名廚,偶然間發現進忠廚藝高超,遂邀請他出任鳳鳴居的大廚。崇煥、光斗亦答允擔任店員,好趁機會尋訪郭倩下落。

進忠廚藝精湛,成功俘虜不少食客,而他跟崇煥、光斗均因儀表出眾,吸引不少女「粉絲」慕名到來,鳳鳴居一時間成為了「人氣」急升的美男食府。另一邊廂,天朝飲食集團主席朱國豐(李國麟飾)與惠芝的父親方天(姜大衛飾)積怨多年,眼見鳳鳴居生意漸見起色,國豐於是用盡方法打擊對手,並將眾人捲入飲食王國內的鬥爭角力。


東宮儲妃變成香港小明星?

郭倩和光斗是青梅竹馬的戀人,卻因郭倩被選為太子妃,感情難以開花結果。三子從電視片段發現疑似郭倩蹤影,而這位於演藝界發展三年,不論容貌、身形、聲線均與郭倩酷似的香港小明星,正是天朝集團的「御用」代言人汪以珊。


明朝男臣面對人生重大抉擇

隨著相處時間日增,崇煥和進忠確信以珊並非郭倩,唯獨光斗認為二人之間必然存在連繫,甚至不自覺地將對郭倩的愛意轉移至以珊身上。另外,崇煥及後無端與一群江湖人士拉上關係,還幾乎當上黑道龍頭,幸得惠芝竭力擺平事件,二人自此產生微妙默契。方天深恐進忠被天朝集團招攬,遂施展美人計撮合進忠和二女兒方惠玲(朱晨麗飾),這位小太監竟對女生萌生好感。

三位古人於現代經歷一次又一次的衝擊,性格與價值觀亦漸漸改變,隨後更因難得一遇的異象即將發生,而面臨人生最嚴峻的考驗與抉擇……
