2014 Editors’ Picks [Year in Review, Part 6]
by | December 29, 2014 | 221 Comments
And now for the Editors’ Picks, which closes out another Year in Review series (and another year, which hardly seems possible, but apparently time stops for no one, no matter how we beg). As ever, we’re grateful to gummimochi and HeadsNo2 for all their awesome recaps and reviews, whether rain or snow or, in some... More »

Santa turns over a new leaf [Year in Review, Part 5]
by | December 25, 2014 | 69 Comments
Ho ho hoooo boy. Well, this sure was a rough year for ol’ Nick, what with the ongoing class action reindeer labor lawsuit and the elf uprising and all. It was getting close to Christmas time so I resorted to training some scab caribou to show old Rudolph that he wasn’t the boss of me.... More »

And the award goes to… [Year In Review, Part 4]
by | December 23, 2014 | 120 Comments
The end of the year marks the beginning of awards season, where everyone hands out shiny trophies for the best of the best. Yes, but what about the middling, and the not-so-stellar? What do they get? This year I’m spreading the love around so that every drama gets to go home with an award and... More »

The art of lie detection [Year in Review, Part 3]
by | December 19, 2014 | 83 Comments
I think I echo the entire human race when I say that there was something in the air this year that made the days go by faster. What other explanation could there be for the fact that it’s December again? Why does the end of the year have to be once a year? Maybe we... More »

Stocking stuffers for the drama addict [Year in Review, Part 2]
by | December 15, 2014 | 117 Comments
If you’re anything like me, then you’re probably wondering to yourself, How is it December already? It really does feel like this year flew past in the blink of an eye, and I’m already up to my eyes in holiday cards that have yet to be sent out. So if you’ve been procrastinating on that... More »

Omg is it that time of year already? [Year in Review, Part 1]
by | December 13, 2014 | 230 Comments
How on earth has another year zoomed by already? It felt as though I’d only just recovered from banging my head against my keyboard over last year’s year-end reviews when I had to start banging my head against my keyboard for this year’s batch. And okay, perhaps banging isn’t expressly necessary—but trust me, it’s become... More »

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 »

by | December 23, 2013 | 273 Comments
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. It was also a year without one drama to sweep all categories and all hearts, but never fear, because that just means the love gets spread around. Thanks again to... More »

Gonna find out who’s naughty or nice [Year In Review, Part 4]
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...
