javabeans: It seemed only natural to follow up our list of favorite couples with our list of favorite bromances, which are sometimes just as compelling as the love stories—er, I mean romantic love stories, since bromances are love stories of another kind. girlfriday: The best kind! Bromantic love is one of my favorite types of... More »

The Lonely Shining Goblin: Episode 13
by | January 13, 2017 | 705 Comments
So many big things are happening in this show lately that part of me is excited (finally, big plot movement!) and part of me is scared for what’ll be left for the final three episodes (flashbacks and musical interludes?). But let’s focus on what we do get, because it’s pretty momentous stuff, and we gotta... More »

If you’ve been a fan of every minute of Goblin, this episode won’t change your opinion—but it may if you’ve been someone who’s felt hot and cold about the show depending on the story focus, in which I suspect this’ll be a good episode for you (us). It’s rich in emotional development, finding touching moments... More »

It’s a new year, although we haven’t been hit with any brand-new shows yet. (That’ll be for later this month—everybody brace yourselves for a sudden influx of material!) After last week’s year-end pre-emptions resulted in a paltry drama airing schedule, it was a bit of a relief to get a full slate this week, though... More »

The Lonely Shining Goblin: Episode 11

Sunny becomes the focal point of this episode, which is a nice change of pace, though of course it really boils down to how much angst she causes one goblin and one reaper. If she thought Reaper was the weirdest man she’d ever met, she’s got another thing coming. One thing’s for sure—she won’t be... More »

Learning about the past makes way for how our characters approach the future, as more answers come tumbling out before the year’s end. There’s a whole lot to unearth today for both mortals and immortals alike that each minute feels packed with information. Everyone could use a fresh start in the new year, but with... More »

The Lonely Shining Goblin: Episode 9

Our goblin gets a much-needed wakeup call when his lack of honesty nets results he clearly wasn’t ready for, and though he still might not understand the why of it enough to change how he shares his information, it’s forward movement nonetheless. And while Goblin loves to wallow, we at least get from one side... More »

Aha, time for answers to some major questions, some of which we’ve suspected all along and others that are fresher, as well as the opening up of brand-new questions. It’s an interesting conundrum to witness love deepening in a world where love may not, in fact, conquer all (or even very much at all). And... More »

The housemates at casa de goblin are becoming their own strange little family one baby step at a time, and their awkward and hilarious friendship, semi-peaceful coexistence, or whatever it may be is definitely the best part of this show. It helps that everyone’s maturity level is about the same, because apparently if there’s one... More »

The Lonely Shining Goblin: Episode 6

I miss the comic hijinks we had yesterday, but the melancholy tone is lovely too, and it’s a big episode for our gloomy goblin, who has to make some pretty big decisions about life, death, and the consequences for those around him. He seemed pretty dead set (hur) on the dying, but the problem seems... More »
