Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching
by DB Staff
So, what are we all watching this week?
What kept you reaching for more (or agonizing when there was no more), and what made you want to throw your remote through the screen? Time to weigh in…
Mouse: I kept coming up with theories on who the true psychopath might be, but I’ve given up on trying to figure out what’s happening now. I’m also less invested in the show after finishing this week’s episodes. Is the philosophical argument nature or nurture, or is Mouse saying a hammer to the head is enough to change someone into a bird-killing psychopath? I don’t know and I’m not sure I care enough to find out.
Vincenzo: I’m still watching this and am entertained, but honestly it’s not striking any emotional chords for me. If I stopped watching it I wouldn’t miss it, and I don’t like saying that about a drama. But what I am enjoying (darkish Song Joong-ki, those really cool/kickass moments that we end most episodes on, the zany ensemble) is keeping me tuning in. And now that we’re so many episodes in, maybe we will get some more advancement with our lawyer leads and that basement of gold? Don’t make us wait too long, Show.
Sisyphus: I’m so confuuuuuused! I’m enjoying all the crazy interconnectedness in this drama but they’re really starting to lose me when it comes to how many versions of each person exist, who knows what, and what’s even possible. The downside is that the drama doesn’t feel like it’s about the unexpected things that can happen in this story world — instead, it’s more like they’re making it up on the go. However, I did enjoy Tae-sool carrying around a floppy Seo-hae.
Currently recapping: Vincenzo
Beyond Evil: The plot is moving faster than I expected. I thought the whole drama would be focusing on the whodunnit aspect, but it looks like we’re going in a different direction with the second half. Crime shows often feel repetitive, so I’m glad this one keeps moving and shifting its focus.
Sisyphus: I hope Sigma gets more interesting because right now, he’s a little too stock villain. I kind of hoped we wouldn’t get a straight-up villain at all and would just have the different factions with conflicting goals. But if we are going with the villain angle, I’d at least like him to be somewhat compelling.
