Here we are, at the end of the psychopath’s road. Mysteries (what’s left of them) are explained, our heroes come to an understanding of sorts, and hitherto unsolved investigations are closed. I would say all of our major plotlines are resolved, and characters receive a measure of closure. As for justice—is that served? Hm, I... More »

Triangle may not be the flashiest show to assault your optic stems week to week, but there’s something to be said for the way it keeps building upon itself to become more than we expected, deeper than what we hoped for, and achingly human despite itself. Watching Young-dal forge a path down memory lane only... More »

Yay, our hero’s back, his real-life injury gets written into the story in a seamless way (complete with hospital rest), and the secret identity cat finally gets let out of the bag.
