Also: Name That Drama (identify dramas by the bits and pieces that readers remember), Kolorful Palette (drawings based on drama scenes by the talented Fanderay), and If You Like (recommendations based on drama genres or tropes).

How was your week in dramas? What floated your boat, or sank your ship? I feel like it’s always feast or famine around here; either I’m scrounging for something to watch and dissatisfied by everything, or drowning in so many dramas it’s a wrench deciding what to prioritize, or set aside for later.

We’re back for another check-in on What We’re Watching! I’ve been enjoying the capsule updates, both as the watcher and the reader, and it seems you guys have as well. As we mentioned previously, we intend to have people cycle in and out of the weekly updates, so not everyone will necessarily write in every... More »
