javabeans: Happy New Year! Everybody keep your eyes real open this year, otherwise you might blink and miss it. That must be what happened to 2014. girlfriday: In all fairness, it might not be 2014’s fault. It might just be that age thing. javabeans: Do you have any New Year’s Resolutions? I generally don’t make... More »

And now for the Editors’ Picks, which closes out another Year in Review series (and another year, which hardly seems possible, but apparently time stops for no one, no matter how we beg).

by | December 25, 2014 | 87 Comments
  Can you name these dramas? As always, feel free to email us your questions and requests for future Name That Drama installments.   ALU’s drama feels seasonally appropriate! I saw this drama few years back. I am not sure of the year it came out. The girl is in a Rudolph outfit and the... More »

Santa turns over a new leaf [Year in Review, Part 5]
by | December 25, 2014 | 69 Comments
Ho ho hoooo boy. Well, this sure was a rough year for ol’ Nick, what with the ongoing class action reindeer labor lawsuit and the elf uprising and all. It was getting close to Christmas time so I resorted to training some scab caribou to show old Rudolph that he wasn’t the boss of me.... More »

And the award goes to… [Year In Review, Part 4]
by | December 23, 2014 | 120 Comments
The end of the year marks the beginning of awards season, where everyone hands out shiny trophies for the best of the best. Yes, but what about the middling, and the not-so-stellar? What do they get? This year I’m spreading the love around so that every drama gets to go home with an award and... More »

Kolorful Palette: Wishing you a cozy Christmas [Healer]
by | December 21, 2014 | 28 Comments
Isn’t it so great when a drama hits its stride? After a somewhat scattered premiere week I was actually rather surprised by how quickly all the characters and plotlines in Healer came together, and I found myself fully engrossed this time around with no voice niggling in the back of my mind about missed potential....

The art of lie detection [Year in Review, Part 3]
by | December 19, 2014 | 83 Comments
I think I echo the entire human race when I say that there was something in the air this year that made the days go by faster. What other explanation could there be for the fact that it’s December again? Why does the end of the year have to be once a year? Maybe we... More »

Stocking stuffers for the drama addict [Year in Review, Part 2]
by | December 15, 2014 | 117 Comments
If you’re anything like me, then you’re probably wondering to yourself, How is it December already? It really does feel like this year flew past in the blink of an eye, and I’m already up to my eyes in holiday cards that have yet to be sent out. So if you’ve been procrastinating on that... More »

Kolorful Palette: Waiting for the train [Healer]
by | December 14, 2014 | 20 Comments
Healer is off to a decent—but not fantastic—start and that’s actually something I feel surprisingly happy about. This year’s slew of dramas have been full of great beginnings and at this point I’ve started to dread having my hopes dashed (I don’t think I’ve ever left so many dramas unfinished). Healer had a perfectly enjoyable... More »

Omg is it that time of year already? [Year in Review, Part 1]
by | December 13, 2014 | 230 Comments
How on earth has another year zoomed by already? It felt as though I’d only just recovered from banging my head against my keyboard over last year’s year-end reviews when I had to start banging my head against my keyboard for this year’s batch. And okay, perhaps banging isn’t expressly necessary—but trust me, it’s become... More »

Name That Drama: Wolves and bad assassins
by | December 12, 2014 | 27 Comments
  Can you name these dramas? As always, feel free to email us your questions and requests for future Name That Drama installments.   It’s always about a boy, isn’t it? Do you know the drama Ashley describes? I’m pretty sure this is a movie (most likely Korean but not completely sure). It’s about a... More »
