Doctor Stranger: Episode 20 (Final)
by | July 10, 2014 | 163 Comments
What a strange finale indeed. We get one half filled to the brim with sheer ridiculousness, while the other serves as an epilogue chronicling the bitter pill that is Doctor Stranger as it circles the drain of eternity. Looking back now, I’m becoming more and more convinced that Myungwoo was never a hospital at all—it... More »

Doctor Stranger: Episode 19
by | July 7, 2014 | 82 Comments
It’s an odd kind of penultimate episode as jumbled pieces finally start coming together just in time for the surgery we were allegedly waiting weeks for. That isn’t to say those pieces necessarily fit all that well together, but then again, Doctor Stranger has never been the kind of show that gave us answers when... More »

Doctor Stranger: Episode 18
by | July 4, 2014 | 63 Comments
Our hero gets railroaded into doing nothing but reacting this hour as the only person he could cling to with any sense of assurance takes some time away from her main job of keeping secrets in order to multitask—now she gets to keep secrets and attempt to scrape Hoon off like an extra-clingy barnacle. When... More »

Doctor Stranger: Episode 17

There’s more of what the doctor didn’t order in this hour with the one surgical competition that will never end, injecting the show with even more moments of medical incompetency than I thought it could handle. On the upside, there are a few emotional beats that ought to stir your heart unless that heart is... More »

Doctor Stranger: Episode 16

Now that the show keeps sitting its characters down to talk about what’s going on, I finally understand why they were holding out on giving explanations for so long: They didn’t have any. As much as I wish I was making that up, this episode jumps the scalpel and then some by giving old evidence... More »

Doctor Stranger: Episode 15

In the midst of the truth-telling that happens in this episode, get ready for an hour full of medical incompetency, questionable ethical judgment, and callous administrators, all thanks to the one competition that keeps being revived by a narrative defibrillator. You’ve got families yelling at doctors, doctors yelling at other doctors, and even doctors yelling... More »

If you had a hope in your head and a song in your heart that things would get better if only we knew what the big overarching plan was—you know, the one governing the surgical competition of the ages, the very same one responsible for the running the minutiae of a hospital no sane person...

Our doctors put their day jobs on the backburner while they sort out their own feelings and ask intake questions about each other’s lives. The revenge-seeking, metaphor-loving doc remains mostly docile in this hour, opting to spend his time building a potential bromance with his former rival and learning things like what his favorite food...

Doctor Stranger: Episode 12

Our two former rivals find more common ground than you would’ve initially guessed in their struggle against their own personal demons, as they find out that what matters most isn’t destroying a castle or rescuing a potentially brainwashed girlfriend—it’s saving lives. Even if that means their self-realization can only happen in the midst of a... More »

Doctor Stranger: Episode 11
by | June 9, 2014 | 58 Comments
We bring the focus back on the surgical jousting tournament between Hoon and Jae-joon, where the number of rounds is as arbitrary as the whole concept itself. Oddly enough, it’s remarkable how this world can seem so small when it hones in on one hospital conflict at a time. History threatens to repeat itself in... More »

Poor Hoon gets taken for one hell of an emotional ride this hour, as his hopes and dreams collide with reality’s inbred cousin. The cat’s no more out of the bag than it was a week ago, though we do get some glimpses into just how gullible our good doctor can be when it comes... More »
