Coffee House: Page 5

More laughs and antics, but now we start peeling back some of the surface layers to get at the backstory. This episode felt really short to me, which I interpret as a good thing since it zipped right by. What gives me hope for this series, on top of the laughs in every episode, is... More »

Cinderella’s Sister: Episode 18
by | May 31, 2010 | 81 Comments
Well look who turned the titanic around in the moments before impact. While this episode mostly has me screaming an exasperated “FINALLY!” at every turn, I can still appreciate it for being what I wanted the show to be around the midpoint. We’ve got plotting, wheeling, dealing, sharing, and hugging…but the real star of this... More »

Bad Guy: Episode 2
by | May 30, 2010 | 94 Comments
I thought Episode 2 was mostly better than Episode 1… except for one particular aspect of it that almost lost me. I was all ready to dive headfirst into Bad Guy until that scene gave me pause. I’m still interested because everything else is so intriguing, but it pinged my earlier misgivings about story contrivances.... More »

God of Study: Episode 9
by | May 30, 2010 | 38 Comments
It seems the majority of the people who like God of Study mostly liked it for the kids and their interactions with each other. So I decided to focus more on the little things they do and make the…dragging parts less significant. Tags: Bae Doo-na, Go Ah-sung, God of Study, Kim Su-ro, Yoo Seung-ho... More »

Cinderella’s Sister: Episode 17
by | May 29, 2010 | 98 Comments
I think I have to start out with an apology, because I’m just so emotionally checked out of this drama that I can’t tell a good episode apart from a bad one anymore. I’ve read a lot of comments about how Episode 17 is so much better than the previous ones, which was promising to... More »

Bad Guy: Episode 1
by | May 27, 2010 | 84 Comments
At long last, after several scheduling switches Bad Guy made its premiere on SBS this week, and got off to a promising start. I’ve been itching for something darker, more serious, and thriller-esque for a while now, because I’d been getting a little bogged down in romantic comedies. But there just aren’t as many thriller...

And the hilarity continues! I’m really loving how things are going so far, and I really, really hope the drama keeps its vibrant pace going. This episode had me cracking up several times, and the love triangle also gets going in earnest. I had thought that I wouldn’t like the triangle, because up to Episode... More »

Cinderella’s Sister: Episode 16

Well, if you’ve made it this far, you deserve a prize. Perhaps a bobblehead Eun-jo doll, or a Ki-hoon weeble wobble, perfect for punching. What we get in this episode, along with the last one, are finally some major revelations and confrontations, ones that we desperately needed perhaps last century, but hey—when you’re dying of...

Coffee House: Page 3
by | May 25, 2010 | 81 Comments
Coffee House isn’t wildly original, but so far I’m getting a kick out of it — it has just the right touch of wackiness to twist the comedy into quirky territory, and the characters are still winning me over. Also, for those of you who were worried or displeased about relationship vagueness, I think this... More »

Personal Taste: Episode 16 (Final)
by | May 24, 2010 | 225 Comments
Dear Show, I really, really wanted to love this finale. So much. But sadly, you ended up being all foreplay, no finish. It was sweet, and fun while it lasted, but I’m not going to call you in the morning. I want to say “It’s not you, it’s me”…but I can’t. ‘Cause it was you.... More »

Cinderella’s Sister: Episode 15
by | May 23, 2010 | 72 Comments
As I was watching Episode 15, I couldn’t help wishing this part of the plot had happened at the halfway point rather than three-quarters of the way to the end. If this shift in family dynamics had come at the midpoint, I think I would have been a lot more excited about the dramatic possibilities,... More »
