This is the episode I’d been waiting for; I’d known that each of our convicts is strong in their own right, but as it turns out, they’re an even stronger team in the face of a common enemy. Not only does an illegal trade run deeper than any of our cops and criminals team could... More »

Seriously badass. I’d been hoping that cable network OCN’s newest crime thriller Bad Guys would satisfy my thirst for some gritty suspense and my hunger for some action-packed sequences—suffice it to say that it does, and then some.

This totally crept up on me, partly because October crept up on me, but also because Saturday night isn’t the usual timeslot for OCN — their newest drama Bad Guys is finally premiering tomorrow, after spending months in development and production.

Seok-ju’s team has assembled to fight the notorious Cha Yeong Woo Firm, but the funny thing is, he never asked for help, and none of them actually belong there: an angry and misplaced prosecutor, a loyal friend betraying his own firm, and a principled yet unrealistic intern.
