by | February 20, 2015 | 65 Comments
I’m still curious about KBS’s decision to make Unkind Women a Wednesday-Thursday show when everything about it screams family weekend drama. That’s not a bad thing — it just follows a pretty familiar pattern that I’m used to seeing in longer-running shows on Saturdays and Sundays. The series is about three generations of hot-blooded women... More »

Personal Taste: Episode 16 (Final)
by | May 24, 2010 | 227 Comments
Dear Show, I really, really wanted to love this finale. So much. But sadly, you ended up being all foreplay, no finish. It was sweet, and fun while it lasted, but I’m not going to call you in the morning. I want to say “It’s not you, it’s me”…but I can’t. ‘Cause it was you.... More »
