javabeans: This is a highlight episode since last week’s episode took us through the end of the Laos trip, but I’m hoping that there’ll be good tidbits in here. I don’t love highlight episodes since they feel like filler, but this production team is pretty good about finding narratives in any situation. girlfriday: Waaaah, I... More »

girlfriday: This episode begins with an ominous tone, introducing each of the boys as “informants,” which must be a meta reference to Yeon-seok’s latest movie. javabeans: Oh right, we pick up after that night out at the club—and from their reactions (“He said that? I told him not to tell”), I hope we’re in for... More »

javabeans: We’re back in Laos! You know, that blue-screened intro is funnier now that I saw what it took to get that footage. (Which, by the way, I watched about fifty times over the past week.) girlfriday: Yes, she turned it into a clip and sent it to me, and we’ve since been very unproductive.... More »
