Joseon X-Files: Episode 4
by | September 21, 2010 | 47 Comments
OH MAN. This episode is sofa king good. Not only is it plotted tightly, staying one step (or, let’s face it, five) ahead of us, dropping well-placed hints, it has a strong emotional throughline. Despite having the most intense plot yet, it’s also the funniest episode thus far. I laughed, I cried, I gaped in... More »

I Am Legend: Episode 14

Ah – much better. I don’t know about the rest of you, but this episode was like a breath of fresh air for me, just as music was a place for the girls to “breathe” outside of their socially-accepted-other lives. Maybe my standards for “good” is a little low (and it has been in the... More »

Playful Kiss: Episode 6
by | September 18, 2010 | 309 Comments
We don’t exactly pick up the same momentum started in the last episode, despite my fervent cheers of, “Come on, Show! You can do iiiiiiiiit!” I just adore Ha-ni’s embarrassingly realistic girl-with-a-bleeding-heart-crush so much that I want more for her. More story, more conflict, more‚Ķeverything. In this episode Seung-jo ups his game and starts to... More »

I Am Legend: Episode 13
by | September 18, 2010 | 33 Comments
I would name this episode ‘The Rise and Fall (and Rise Again) of Jun Seol Hee.’ More push-and-pull between Seol Hee and her ex-Ji Wook. As others have mentioned in the comments, I do think that I Am Legend is trying to do a lot of things at once. But more on that later. Tags:... More »

Playful Kiss: Episode 5
by | September 17, 2010 | 200 Comments
Yay! Playful Kiss finally figured out how to tell a story! This was the episode I was waiting for — one that felt complete, had an arc, told a story, was driven by something more than pure fluffy cuteness. It’s too bad this week dropped this drama to new ratings lows, because it’s just starting... More »

It’s time for the ultimate showdown: Libido vs. Fox Bead. Who will win? Who will lose? Who will make girlfriday cry? You know which horse I’m backing, but it looks like Show might have a mind of its own. Gah. What’s a girl gotta do for some smoochies ’round here? Oh, Show, you big tease.... More »

My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho: Episode 11
by | September 15, 2010 | 197 Comments
Yay, a good episode! I was a little nervous that the drama might start to falter, what with the stresses of the live shoot and last week’s disappointing Monday episode. But this episode was chock full of emotional developments, which have been building steadily to this point, and I always love when latent conflict bubbles... More »

Joseon X-Files: Episode 3
by | September 13, 2010 | 33 Comments
Another really strong episode. The plot thickens, and we start seeing the first hints of a romantic attraction — not too many, just enough little bits to intrigue. The director really has a deft hand with building suspense and drawing out the tension of simple moments. The subject of this episode isn’t particularly scary in... More »

I Am Legend: Episode 12
by | September 12, 2010 | 33 Comments
After the epic-ness that was the MoaE vs. Seol Hee face-off, I felt that this episode was on the boring side. There were too much Seung Hye, MoaE, and law-jingo that I was craving for more performances and more music. And yes – I am nearly bald after all the hair pulling. There was only... More »
