by | January 18, 2015 | 64 Comments
Now that the premise is all set up and the characters introduced, the show is starting to settle into a cute, quirky groove that I quite like. Hong-do takes some positive steps forward in getting to know Doo-soo, and we get a glimpse of what a good, intuitive doctor Yi-seok can be when he makes... More »

More of the general picture is revealed, but the secrets of the past are still hidden from us, as they are from Do-hyun. Hints of Do-hyun’s true strength... More »

Punch: Episode 9
by | January 16, 2015 | 29 Comments
So far, Punch has managed to up its own ante without fail each week, and not only meets the sometimes insanely difficult challenges it creates for itself, it actually exceeds them. If that sounds like high praise, that’s because it is, and because there’s no reason to hide one’s feelings for a show that’s as... More »

Aw, it’s time to say farewell to our band of reporters, who based on this drama, are pretty much defenders of truth, justice, and guardians of the galaxy.

Pinocchio: Episode 18
by | January 14, 2015 | 75 Comments
This episode is our big windup before the final pitch, where all our characters choose sides and reveal their true colors. Some are more conflicted than we might’ve anticipated, while others are far more principled than we gave them credit for. Well, when you start the show a soulless vulture who feeds off of other...

Spy: Episode 2

Sleek and stylish, just how I like ‘em. That and how briskly-paced this show is, since Spy isn’t messing around when it comes to getting in and out without wearing out its welcome, which is pretty nifty considering its double-header format and its unusual time slot on Friday nights. The limited timeframe also cuts lingering... More »

Healer: Episode 12

One of these days, I’m going to run out of words for this show, because I will have used them all already to tell you that it’s worked its weird witchcraft yet again to deliver yet another compulsively watchable episode. I find the recent explosion of interest and excitement to be at once totally understandable... More »

Healer: Episode 11

More good stuff! It’s pretty gratifying to go into each episode hoping for the best and to be rewarded, because so often we’re met with disappointment instead. This episode makes some huge strides forward with connections being drawn and continued shifts in the relationships, bringing forth some unexpected (but totally welcome) alliances, while hinting at...

Kill Me, Heal Me: Episode 2
by | January 12, 2015 | 78 Comments
Kill Me, Heal Me‘s premise had so much potential to go very wrong, so I’m glad that it’s taken the path of thoughtful pathos rather than cheap laughs and overwrought melo. By packing some emotional heft into the characters, even the much-used battlefield of corporate takeovers can be refreshed. Fighter Se-gi provides a strong counterpoint... More »
