I’m always wary of jumping onboard a long-running drama, because man that is a time commitment, but I did find Six Flying Dragons rather strong in its premiere.

javabeans: New Journey to the West ended this week, and, as we’ve come to expect of Na PD shows, was a hit from start to finish. Really, as soon as it was over I read a bunch of articles that used phrases like “Na PD’s magic” and “This is why we need Na PD” and... More »

This is what I’ve been waiting for. Exhilarating and fast-paced with sudden moments of poignancy, our first look into the disaster’s aftermath gives us an excellent overview of the conflicts our disaster response team will be facing.

I didn’t think this hero could get any swoonier, but he just keeps raising the bar. I’m convinced this is a fantasy drama now, because people like this just don’t exist in real life. It’s a rough day for our heroine as revelations come hurtling at her from just about every single person around her,... More »

You know, I’ve never been so happy with a show that has such slow plot advancement. But it’s because Twenty Again delivers so much emotional gain and character growth that it makes me want to dwell even longer in every beat on our heroine’s journey, not missing a single look or feeling under the surface....
