Santa presents: Things I Learned from Dramaland
by | December 25, 2013 | 90 Comments
The one good thing about working one day a year and outsourcing most of your menial labor to elves is that it gives you plenty of time to watch dramas. This year I discovered that I had watched them all wrong before, because when you watch with an open mind, you can gain valuable life... More »

Here are your winners for 2013! It was an interesting year in dramaland, with a wide array of genres to choose from all year long.

by | December 20, 2013 | 132 Comments
It’s that time of year, for Show to trade in all its good deeds and gold stars for a spot on Santa’s list. Have you been naughty, nice, or something in between? If there’s any constant in dramaland, it’s that you can never underestimate the sneak-attack of a naughty finale, or the surprise resilience of... More »

A Year in Compliment Sandwiches [Year In Review, Part 3]
by | December 16, 2013 | 196 Comments
It’s been an interesting year for the world of dramas, hasn’t it? Usually any given year will at least give us that one epic drama we can all rally around like a big ol’ communal campfire, allowing us to share s’mores of our feels filled with chocolate (abs) and, okay, maybe this analogy is getting...

I Watched for You [Year In Review, Part 2]
by | December 13, 2013 | 214 Comments
Given the sheer volume of shows that dramaland puts out every year, I can think of plenty of reasons as to why I dropped a title or two from my watching list in 2013. And yet, I also realized that there almost always happened to be something or someone behind why I watch the ones... More »

Cheers to Dramaland 2013 [Year In Review, Part 1]
by | December 9, 2013 | 342 Comments
Another year has flown by, and it’s time to look back, reminisce, and assess how 2013 treated us in dramaland. And in taking a trip down memory lane (sure it’s a short lane, but so’s the memory), it strikes me that 2013 was pretty good in churning out a steady diet of watchable dramas, but... More »

Master’s Sun: Episode 17 (Final)
by | October 3, 2013 | 380 Comments
We’ve reached the end of another Hong sisters drama, and I’m happy to say there are no sudden whiplash-inducing turns in the final hour. I guess on the flipside there are few surprises left in store, but if those are the options, I’ll stick to what’s tried and true and save my neck, thank you... More »

Master’s Sun: Episode 16
by | October 2, 2013 | 203 Comments
We’re almost at the end! Even though I’d never argue that the one-episode extension did this show (or any show) good, I did find myself pleasantly surprised with how the show seems to feel on track with its pacing as we head into the finale. Granted it wasn’t exactly a fast pace and I do... More »

Master’s Sun: Episode 15
by | September 26, 2013 | 368 Comments
It feels like a mini-finale of sorts, resolving one of our long-running mysteries and affording our characters some closure. I like that we get to put the necklace-kidnapping-twins plot behind us now, because while it served its purpose in moving us along, it’s also nice to get that lesser conflict out of the way before...
