It just gets better and better. Lines are drawn and everyone crosses them, culminating in one of the most emotionally satisfying episodes in the series. Moo-yul finds himself the master of his own fate and goes with his heroic gut, which we wouldn’t have any other way. In retrospect, I only see one negative in... More »

Are monsters born or made? Our boys (and okay, one girl) come face to face with a bonafide monster who loves guns, threats, and mind games.

There’s just something about this drama that manages to hit all the right notes, since there’s nothing quite like watching puzzle pieces find their rightful places. Set all that inherently-nerdy satisfaction amidst haunting, atmospheric visuals and a tone that manages to be both creepy AND introspective, and you’ve got episode two of White Christmas, entitled...
