        Hahaha that little package is plenty special as far as I’m concerned.
        1. It’s a gift from a friend.
        2. It contains something BTS and Yoongi. ^^

        I’m honoured to be the recipient of first overseas package. *bows*
        *sending positive thoughts to the American and Indian posts for a speedy and safe delivery*

I have now become my dads personal kdrama calendar.

Dad: Is Life on Mars tonight?
Me: No, the weekend. Tonight it\’s WWWSK.

Dad: Is WWWSK today?
Me: No, in 2 more days

    To me, V is the most attractive member of BTS. Jin may be Worldwide Handsome and Jimin may be my bias, but V is just, idk, godly.

      I agree 100%!!! All of the members are good looking, don’t get me wrong, but V is just on another level. He is my bias, but that doesn’t change the fact that he is damn gorgeous regardless. He sits on the pedal stool next to TOP as the handsomest of men to me. 😆

        Ah, TOP is in his own realm of handsome.

          Seriously. He has a place of honor next to young Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp as most handsome EVER!! I didn’t think anyone could ever match their beauty until I came across TOP’s beautiful visage. V now resides among them too. But hot damn TOP 😍

Has anyone watched the Japanese drama Miss Sherlock? My dad picked up the first 2 episodes (in his first dive into the world of illegal streaming thanks to Life on Mars) and says it quite good – he likes it better than Elementary, which he watches religiously. I just want to get an idea if he will be disappointed and I should warn him and also if it\’s worth my time picking up too. I am already watching 3 shows currently so I need a good reason to pick up a 4th.

    I watched up to ep.7. Love the genre but it got a bit predictable with the not-quite-moriarty shrink plot so I dropped it. I like the idea of an all-female spin on Sherlock so I wanted to love it more… The mysteries are fun as long as they stick to the procedural format (solvable hints but not completely trivial). Sherlock’s acting I find a bit over the top (acting weird for the weird’s sake) and the Watson is kind of dumb on occasions. Ok, but not great. (Note though that I also dropped Elementary after a couple of seasons.)

      Thanks for your input. Sounds like a relatively enjoyable if not amazing mystery show. At least you didn’t say it was utter crap! ^^

      FYI, there are only 8 episodes in total – if you ever desire to pick up the show again 😊.

    If he likes procedural shows with a quirky twist, I suggest the C-drama Medical Examiner Dr. Qin. It is not your typical Chinese drama, not a romance, but it does deal with the forensics side of things, and at times gets a bit gruesome. But the three leads are great and have good bickering team chemistry.

      Thanks for the recommendation! He does indeed like this type of show. I will suggest it to him for his next show to watch. Thanks!!! 😆😊

Got my dad hooked on Life on Mars while I was home for Father\’s Day. His one question to me was \”is this a show where I have to wait each week?\” Yes, dad, I\’m afraid it is… Of course, all this then meant having to teach him how to use an illegal site and cast the show to the TV before I left home.

Finally got around to watching the Sense8 series finale. IT WAS SO GOOD!! I think my favorite part was the fact that Sun and Detective Mun wore couples outfits – so sweet! Bae Doona really is amazing.

    yay!!! a Sense8 thread!!!!

    I have mixed feelings about the ending, and the show in general. I started Season1 last year, with my boyfriend, and we both felt the show took way too long to truly “take off”, in terms of their powers and enemies and the overall plot. Sure, we love the strong LGBTQ stories, but in terms of the main plot ( From Google: “The story of Sense8 begins when the psychic connection of eight strangers from different cultures and parts of the world is “birthed” by a woman called Angelica, who kills herself to avoid capture by a man named Whispers”), it took waaaaaay too long!! I mean, it literally didn’t properly kick in until Season 2, and by then, it felt like we were scrambling to catch up on lost time.

    Then Season 3 was cancelled, and there was the promise of a movie (Last Ep). and the movie took what seemed like forever to come out (understandably so), so by the time we sat down to watch it, we were a little lost and not as engaged.

    Doona Bae remains my fav character, she and Wolfgang.

      For me, it was all about the characters and less the sci-fi aspect or even plot. It was so wonderful to see the characters grow and show such a diverse and amazing cast. I cannot tell you how happy I was to see Wolfgang patting the bed for Rajan to come over for some sexy time. I actually clapped! I look at the finale as the best they were able to offer considering the circumstances, I try not to imagine what could have been if we had gotten a full season.

        I know, right? I saw him show up in Paris all romantic and like… “I’ve missed you” and basically melted. I wish we had the same emotional payoff for ALL the couples/relationships (I still think the Wolfgang/Kala conflict could have been resolved with a little bit more care and a bit more agency on her part) but overall, I’m very happy with what they did 🙂

I\’m sorry, but you people are crazy: Proposition to split California into 3 states will be on the November statewide ballot. Really?? 😒😩🤔🙄😂 The proponents got the required signatures for it to be placed on the ballot – this means there are 600,000 crazy people wanting to split the state into thirds.

    …But why, though.

      Because people are morons. The only reason I can possibly imagine would be to get more Republicans for the legislature. Thankfully they say 70% of us would need to be swayed. It’s going to fail, but the fact that it got on the ballot boggles the mind. Make sure you vote now that you are of age!!!!

      After a quick read, I speculate it is one way to break up the world’s 5th largest economy while also segregating via state borders (and therefore tax bases) different populations. Most probably along both economic and racial lines.

      Two years ago, I would have said it will never happen, but right now we live in whack-a-doo world and anything is possible now.

    Regardless of how the vote would go (and it won’t go anywhere), it would require congressional approval.

    Not going to happen.

    As an aside, the people behind this must be the same wacky group behind the plastic bag ban and the latest, plastic straws. …… Don’t even get me started on this.

I don’t know why I thought Random Dance Play would be fun, instead it just broke my heart a little seeing the empty space. I am still surprised how much his loss affects me when watching SHINee. The :40 minute mark crushed my soul. 😢 Fighting SHINee!! You guys are amazing!!

Reading Vulture as I am wont to do at work I saw this article splashed across the home page: http://www.vulture.com/2018/06/a-deeper-look-at-why-bts-has-thrived-in-america.html

A really interesting read on the reasons for BTS\’s success in America (and one that acknowledges that BTS isn\’t the only kpop act to write their own music or make socially conscientious songs etc.)

    Easily the best article I’ve read so far. Precisely because most articles, “seldom involve a guess as to why BTS is the one K-pop act to have inspired such a following”.

    Thanks for sharing!

    That was a very good read. I found it so refreshing in its objectivity, in the wave of either sycophantic clickbaits or superficial bashers, that have currently hit us. And so well researched! It really hit the nail on the head with the tracking of the rise of BTS and the reasons why.
    Thanks for the share UmbrellaMan!
