Goodbye Mr. Black: Episode 14

It’s a good episode for the women in our drama, who both find themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place. Or maybe it’s more like an evil bastard and a truth they’d rather not face. In any case, I like it when Swan takes an active role in the story, especially because I’m... More »

Goodbye Mr. Black: Episode 13

It’s a tough day for Swan, who gets thrown by some unexpected revelations and continues to bear the brunt of continued noble idiocy. The reveal isn’t much of a shocker for us, since this drama never quite manages to make the most of its plot twists, and subtlety tends to get bludgeoned over the head... More »

There are some really touching moments in this episode, but then there are also some big head-scratchers too, and it kind of mirrors the way I keep changing my mind about our hero, and whether I should empathize or just stay mad at him. I guess it’s not Goodbye Mr. Black if you’re not feeling... More »

Ratings more than doubled for Goodbye Mr. Black today, and while I’d like to attribute it to a rise in story quality (which did happen), I suppose really we have to attribute it to the fact that Descended From the Sun is no longer in the race. (Although, is it sad that ratings doubled and... More »

I actually enjoyed this episode, because people start to be less predictable, which leads to crucial mistakes on both sides. I like it when a drama shakes up the established pattern—taking the conflict out of the corporate boardroom, for example, which was much needed in Goodbye Mr. Black—and lets everyone fly off the handle a...

Somewhat to my surprise, things get better this episode! I’m not about to take it for granted, so I’m grateful for the upturn. It’s true that the messiness is still messy and the crude editing still feels crude, but I finally felt emotionally drawn in by the plot, and that’s a big step forward in... More »

Now that we’re in the thick of the revenge scheme, everyone’s got their hackles up and the tables get turned in hyper-speed—one day our hero is on top, the next day the baddie is on top, the next day the other baddie is on top. But the unexpected turns make Black break from his usual... More »

I do think Goodbye Mr. Black is settling into its rhythm, as the various teams (and there are many!) solidify and get to work on their various schemes and goals. Granted, that rhythm is of the awkward and uneven kind, but there’s still charm to be found amidst the jerky parts. Most of that charm... More »

I’m honestly still confused by yesterday’s episode and our hero’s choices thus far, but on the upside, at least we know he’s making deliberate choices now and that he has a plan? ‘Cause I’ll be frank with you—I was about 50-50 on that yesterday. It’s pretty funny how your expectations can go so quickly from,... More »

This revenge did not set up the way I thought it would, but it does give us the room to explore other aspects of our hero’s betrayal and loss of love. There’s a fun caper element driving his scheme, and I’m happy to see the formation of a Scooby gang, even if we’re not given... More »
