Pinocchio: Episode 4
by | November 20, 2014 | 175 Comments
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.

Pinocchio: Episode 2

Agh, they’re so cuuuuute. Now that our backstory is in place, the second episode actually brings our leads together onscreen, and I’m happy to say that their dynamic is adorable—their bickering relationship is funny and heartfelt, and I really like both characters. It was impossible to tell from the first episode alone if the show... More »

Are they lying on clouds? Cotton candy? I don’t know why they’d be swimming in either fluffy substance to begin with, but the effect is rather pretty. Posters are out for SBS’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday series Pinocchio, the new part-fantasy, part-reality drama from the team behind I Hear Your Voice. That show was similarly sprinkled with...

I would expect no less from a movie that’s all about royal clothing and the people who make it, but these posters for Tailor sure are beautiful. We’ve also got our first trailer, which is equally beautiful, and also highlights for us the story’s mix of tension, intrigue, romance, and thrills. Tailor is about two... More »

Okay, the second teaser for SBS’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama Pinocchio is a step in the right direction — at least it contains a tidbit of story information and actually features the heroine of our story, which is more than I could say for the first teaser (possibly a thing we should pretend didn’t happen. Except... More »

by | September 4, 2014 | 164 Comments
Ah, so now we have the reason behind Pinocchio’s title — the drama features a heroine who can’t tell a lie. She’s a character who suffers from Pinocchio syndrome (I think it’s called different things, but they mean a condition where your body shows a physical sign whenever you lie), which makes her hiccup whenever...
