Tamra the Island: Episode 16 (Final)

So here we are. The finale. Tamra, you have been an excellent drama. While obviously the (cursed) cut hurt the ending, I still utterly adore you. And utter adoration is really all you can ask. [As this is the final Tamra recap, I’d like to give nattacatta a big thank-you to taking on this project... More »

Tamra the Island: Episode 15

That damn Lady in Red! This woman grates on my nerves so much. I have long been wishing for her to stop smirking so infuriatingly smugly, but it seems I have another hour to wait, as she keeps putting all of our characters through twists and turns. The only good thing about Tamra ending is... More »

Tamra the Island: Episode 14

And if we thought last episode was enough angst for us, it seems it isn’t. As Tamra speeds towards the (imposed) finale, there is a lot of ground (and emotions) to cover. Luckily, however, the necessary plot developments aren’t getting in the way of two of this show’s biggest strengths: character and relationships. The characters... More »

Tamra the Island: Episode 13

Hello angst. From the opening argument to the final tear, there is a lot of tension (and plot development) in episode 13. After our lovely reprieve in the previous episode, things for our characters are getting kind of awful. But Tamra does angst so amazingly well that I still love this episode. Tags: featured, Hwang...

Smiling Kyu has returned bright eyed and bushy tailed this episode, so get ready to swoon. I’ll apologise now for my overuse of the word ‘adorable’ in this recap, but I think that basically sums it up. Except for the two murder investigations, of course. And the corpse. And the government corruption. But who pays... More »

Tamra the Island: Episode 11

This episode the dynamics change and bring some new possibilities: a couple of murders throw a spanner in the works, a certain foreigner’s entire destiny changes, a young girl is made over (to the delight of her love interest) and a meddling mother wishes she’d had the sex talk sooner.

I cannot sing enough praises for Tamra. This episode delves into new territory, both literally and figuratively, but the change doesn’t at all impact the unique flavour of this show. Tags: featured, Hwang Chan-bin, Im Joo-hwan, Seo Woo, Tamra the Island... More »

Tamra the Island: Episode 9

What a great episode. We move from climax to climax, with few breaks in between. People fight, people die, leadership changes, parties are had, boats sail away and there is a whole lot of crying along the way. So strap in.

This episode sure focuses on the take-over side of the plot, and I love that it doesn’t bother me. It is still fun, interesting and vibrant. And therein lay Tamra’s charm. Tags: featured, Hwang Chan-bin, Im Joo-hwan, Seo Woo, Tamra the Island... More »

Man, I love Tamra the Island. The pacing continues to be tight, the acting continues to be strong, the characters continue to grow and the scenery continues to be beautiful. What more could one ask? Perhaps for some skinship? Well… Tags: featured, Hwang Chan-bin, Im Joo-hwan, Seo Woo, Tamra the Island... More »

Tamra the Island: Episode 6

Beware: steer clear of irate diver women if you are trying to run away. This episode was fun and eventful, and I love the speedy pace so far. It stretches out the plot points to the right moment- it doesn’t become repetitive or, conversely, resolve issues too quickly without building the dramatic tension. Tags: featured,... More »
