Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching
by | September 11, 2016 | 342 Comments
How did everyone’s dramas stack up this week? Any big duds to avoid, or hidden gems you’ve unearthed on dusty old hard drives that you care to share? The constant turnover in dramaland is so relentless that I can’t remember the last time I went back and watched something old, but I’m about to have... More »

Sweet heroes and fierce heroines [Year in Review, Part 10]
by | December 27, 2015 | 150 Comments
Looking back, 2015 has been a really generous year for me in dramaland. Thanks to the overlords’ wicked sense of humor (or maybe just a belated sense of self-preservation…), the five-drama limit posed an interesting predicament. I found I didn’t want to expend my words or energy on the middling-to-mediocre shows, or indeed, the half-good-half-bad... More »

by | December 23, 2015 | 72 Comments
Wowie, it’s the end of 2015, and another eventful year of dramas has come to an end. I always enjoy awards and reviews season, since it puts the whole year in perspective and gives me a couple more dramas to put on my list. I’m making a list and not checking it twice, since I’ll... More »

Five by five in 2015 [Year in Review, Part 3]
by | December 16, 2015 | 136 Comments
So it turns out that the only thing worse than being frazzled to capacity to write twenty reviews at year’s end is forcing a drama addict to choose ONLY FIVE shows to talk about. I’m pretty sure we knew this going in, and I even have vague recollections of saying things like, “Yes! The angst... More »

javabeans: Did everyone like the first Top 10 feature? I can say I thoroughly enjoyed it… in that capping my workload to just 10 entries (…ish) is really working for me. girlfriday: Being limited is really liberating. It also means we have the energy to think up new lists on new topics, which keeps it... More »

Twenty Again: Episode 16 (Final)
by | October 17, 2015 | 359 Comments
I’m really sad about saying goodbye to this show. Twenty Again made a simple story about a woman and her road to self-discovery an uplifting, emotional journey where we could root for our heroine to grow young so that she could grow up. Maybe it even inspired some of us to do some soul-searching of... More »

Twenty Again: Episode 15
by | October 16, 2015 | 179 Comments
Just when you think it’s going to be smooth sailing all the way to the finish line, we’re reminded that it’s never truly over until it’s over. And here I was thinking it’d be a cakewalk to our happily-ever-after. I know that pain and suffering builds character and all that, but I’d waste a time-traveling... More »

Twenty Again: Episode 14
by | October 10, 2015 | 305 Comments
Oh, schoolyard romance hijinks, there you are! Cute makes a comeback (not that it ever really left) as our heroine struggles to hide her feelings… in the most obvious way possible. Not that I could blame her. She also gets some amazing support from the people around her when she really needs it, as she... More »
