Pinocchio: Episode 11
by | December 17, 2014 | 165 Comments
I wish I could tell you that learning the truth meant that everyone got a happy fluffy holiday reunion, but that would be a big fat lie. It’s time for our hero to face the music about everything he’s been dreading and denying about his past, even if it means waking up from the dream... More »

Pinocchio: Episode 10
by | December 12, 2014 | 163 Comments
It’s our heroine’s episode to shine, and she steps up admirably to the task—as a girlfriend, a daughter, and a reporter—without losing an ounce of herself and her integrity in the process. I sometimes wonder how this show manages to make an episode where all of the shit hits all of the fans in one... More »

Well, there’s no more keeping everyone in opposite corners now. Worlds collide and secrets that we want buried just keep finding their way to the surface.

You know you like a character when you see very plainly how everything’s about to go terribly awry for him, but you keep telling yourself that it’ll be okay—through some kind of magic, he won’t be faced with his most devastating heartbreak yet, and he’ll come out on the other side without losing anyone he...

There are some harsh growing pains in store for our rookies, and as it always seems to be in life, the most idealistic of the bunch with the loftiest expectations is the one who falls the farthest. Today’s episode is inspired by a proverb about the frog in the well, who refused to look outside... More »

Pinocchio: Episode 6

It’s an episode about rivalries every which way imaginable, between romantic rivals, TV networks, rookie teams, and the shouty sunbaes who train them. The newbies get sent into the field for the first time on their own, and as expected, it’s a jungle out there. I’m not even sure if they’re fighting each other, their... More »

Now that feelings are getting mixed up with warring agendas, things start to get complicated in a good way, and more is left unsaid than ever before. Sadly for our heroine, even denial leads to hiccups, which means she either has to confess her feelings, or be stuck hiccupping for the rest of her life.... More »

Okay, I seriously love this episode. I swear it’s not even because our hero finally gets a makeover (even though that’s worth a round of applause in and of itself—fare thee well, Mop of Shame!), but because the family stuff hits all the right chords. It’s an episode about fathers, and the kind of love... More »

It’s another zippy episode that sets the stage for our characters to find their calling in life, and takes us from the teen years into young adulthood, and off the island into the big city. For our heroine, chasing her dream means coming to grips with the mother she’s idolized her entire life, and that... More »

It’s time to say goodbye to our plus-nine boys, and wish them well wherever their love lives take them. All four boys have their stories wrapped up in ways that stay truthful to the characters, which is a lovely thing to see; and while they may not all have had the year they hoped for,... More »
