Today’s Webtoon: Episodes 15-16 (Final)

It’s time to draw a close to this chapter, as our characters finally reap the rewards of the seeds they’ve been painstakingly sowing all this while. They’ve come a long way from where they first started, and adversity has only made them stronger.

 
EPISODES 15-16 WEECAP
“Today’s

Dae-ryuk and Dong-hee toil away at their tablets, and at the end of it, they manage to submit Dae-ryuk’s manuscript before the deadline. The latest chapter goes up right on time, and Ma-eum’s eyes tear up as she reads it. For the first time, there’s color in Dae-ryuk’s art — the yellow flowers reflect the hope that has begun to bloom in his heart.

Ma-eum asks Dae-ryuk how he thought of adding color to his manuscript, and he answers that he recalls doodling with his mom as a child, using colored crayons. It was a happy memory that had gotten lost with the sands of time, until now.

“Today’s

Reminding Dae-ryuk to always remember that he’s not alone on this journey, Ma-eum reassures him that he has the support of the webtoon team and his readers. She holds her hand out for a no-contact air fistbump as they’ve always done, except this time Dae-ryuk makes contact. He’s gotten over his fear of touch!

Ma-eum instinctively pulls back in shocked disbelief as Dae-ryuk smiles sheepishly, and then she fistbumps him again excitedly. Aww, Dong-hee asks if he can get a fistbump too, and Dae-ryuk happily obliges.

“Today’s

Ma-eum walks home with Joon-young after work, and he thanks her for teaching him how to trust people again. Pointing to both ends of the bridge, Ma-eum muses that they once used to be polar opposites, but now they’ve met in the middle.

In response, Joon-young says that he’s glad their differences brought them together then, and that the person at the other end of the bridge was her. Flustered by his sincerity, Ma-eum laughs the moment off lightheartedly.

“Today’s

Ma-eum returns home to find her father reading — and crying over — the latest chapter of Dae-ryuk’s webtoon. He remarks that it’s pretty amazing, and Ma-eum says that she’s glad to be in this line of work.

As long as she keeps working hard, she can make even more people happy with the work that she produces, and no one has to get hurt. Aww, Dad sheds proud tears of joy as he gazes at Ma-eum. He may be gruff and obstinate at times, but it’s clear that he treasures his precious daughter deeply.

“Today’s

Ji-hyung and Ma-eum head to a quaint little restaurant for lunch, where they notice that its walls are plastered with scribbles and drawings made by previous customers. Ma-eum suggests that they try drawing each other, only to end up surprised by Ji-hyung’s drawing skills.

Ji-hyung admits that he used to dream of becoming a webtoon artist, except he ended up choosing to become a “shadow artist” instead — i.e., someone who works behind the scenes. He told himself it was because he didn’t dare to become an actual artist, but as time passed, his perspective changed.

“Today’s “Today’s

So many people pour in effort behind the scenes just to produce one piece of creative work, and their presence is equally important. We’re shown a montage of the drama’s production team hard at work, which is a really sweet acknowledgement of their hard work.

Ji-hyung admits that he was skeptical of Ma-eum at the start, since she would’ve been used to receiving love as an athlete, rather than giving others support. However, she’s since proven him wrong, and he encourages her to continue doing well.

“Today’s

The day of the Neon executives’ meeting rolls around, and Ma-eum is so anxious she ends up going to the pantry so she can flip her lucky coin. Except she misses as it falls, and it rolls all the way to someone’s feet. It’s Ji-hyung, who picks it up and says he’s taking his coin back. There’s no need for it anymore, since he tells her to believe that luck is always on their side.

Man-cheol presents his pitch to the Neon executives; in order to remain competitive with Youngtoon, he suggests setting up an affiliate company for Kang-nam. This studio can be helmed by Ji-hyung, who will handle the management aspect, while Kang-nam oversees the creative content.

“Today’s

Thankfully, the executives are convinced and Man-cheol is given the green light to go ahead with his plan, but the news is bittersweet. As the co-CEO of the newly-minted Studio Ginger, Ji-hyung will have to leave his position in the webtoon team.

At their team dinner, everyone congratulates Ji-hyung with teary-eyed smiles. Afterwards, Ji-hyung contemplates the coin that he once gave Ma-eum. He reminisces about the day he gave it to her at the Neon interview, and then as if tying a neat bow on his feelings, he uses that coin to buy a drink from a vending machine.

“Today’s

After a team meeting, Man-cheol tells Ma-eum to stay behind. He asks her how many years she practiced judo, and when she says 15 years, he requests that she work with them for exactly that amount of time, too. Omg, she’s getting hired as a full-time employee!

The team surprises her with a cake and handfuls of confetti, and Ma-eum can’t help but burst into overjoyed tears. Aww. Her hard work has finally paid off, and I’m so glad it all worked out in the end.

“Today’s “Today’s

Chief Heo’s office gets searched by the audit team, under CEO Yoon’s orders. It turns out that Joon-young finally reported Chief Heo’s corruption and backstabbing to the CEO, along with the evidence he’s painstakingly collected. Hah, Chief Heo’s fallen into the very trap he laid. He’s made to take a long break from work, after which he’ll have to resign.

When Chief Heo runs into Man-cheol in the hallway, he’s as unrepentant as ever, putting on an air of superiority. However, Man-cheol isn’t cowed, and he asserts that his webtoon team will continue to grow even stronger. Ever the bigger man, he advises Chief Heo to stop sabotaging others and playing dirty, and to instead treat the people around him with sincerity.

“Today’s

After a meeting, Pomme asks Joon-young if he’s confessed to Ma-eum yet. When she realizes he hasn’t, she urges him to, coyly musing that she might just confess first. Joon-young freezes in surprise, asking if she… possibly… likes Ma-eum? HAHAHA. Hey, at least he’s supportive?

Joon-young heads to Ma-eum’s manhwa cafe that night, and he tells her that he’s moving out since he’s finally paid off all his student loans; he doesn’t have to work at the rental service anymore. Joon-young asks her to recommend him a manhwa to read as he wraps up this chapter of his life, and she deliberates for a while before pointing to herself. Ma-eum offers to be his listening ear, and he says he’ll take her up on her offer once he’s done moving.

“Today’s “Today’s

Now that the webtoon team is finally producing good results, they have more leeway to launch projects, and they decide to hold another webtoon contest. When the winners are announced, first place turns out to be the author of a slice-of-life travel comic that both Young-bae and Ma-eum have their eyes on.

Oh no, the artist is Seul-ah, who submitted her entry using a pen name. After the traumatic experience working with Young-bae previously, Seul-ah is very much inclined to choose Ma-eum as her PD in charge.

“Today’s

However, Young-bae’s years of experience and knowledge about the webtoon industry would certainly be more beneficial to Seul-ah, and everyone knows it. In the end, Seul-ah chooses Ma-eum, but Ma-eum offers a suggestion — how about she works with both of them?

Since Ma-eum cares about doing justice to Seul-ah’s story above all else, while Young-bae focuses on exposure and raking in views, Seul-ah can get the best of both worlds. It’s a nice resolution to the arc, with both Ma-eum and Young-bae maturely recognizing the merits to each other’s work.

“Today’s “Today’s

At night, Joon-young considers calling Ma-eum, but chickens out at the last minute — until his ringtone has him tripping over himself to answer Ma-eum’s call, HAHA. She calls him out to their usual pojangmacha for a drink, and she tells him that she also feels like she’s ended a chapter of her life.

Ma-eum recounts her last judo match, confiding in Joon-young about how she finally mustered up the courage to see that friend again. She muses that she doesn’t think she could’ve done it without the lessons she learned and the strength she gained from the webtoon team, but Joon-young disagrees, saying that he thinks she’s fully capable as her own person.

“Today’s

The next morning, our webtoon team begins packing up their things. Thanks to their consistently improving performance results, the webtoon team finally gets to move to the Neon main building like they’ve always dreamed of. Yay! As they carry their boxes to their new office, Joon-young good-naturedly teases Ma-eum that she hasn’t given him an answer yet.

We flash back to the rest of their conversation at the pojangmacha — Ma-eum asks Joon-young what kind of person he thinks she is, and he replies, “A good person… as well as someone I like.” Eeeee! He finally confessed!

Joon-young good-naturedly reassures her that she doesn’t have to give him an answer right away, and that he’ll be waiting for her response. Back in the present, he walks off with a smile, leaving Ma-eum flustered.

“Today’s

We see a montage of the team’s past moments, as Ma-eum narrates that we may stumble and fall, but ultimately we still persevere in the pursuit of our dreams. Sometimes, we have to make difficult choices, but that’s how we keep on writing the story of our lives.

The team calls out to Ma-eum, beckoning her to join them, and she runs after them with her trademark exuberant grin. In voiceover, she says that a new story unfolds every day — just like today’s webtoon. (Heh, title drop!) Together, the team walks towards a better and brighter future.

“Today’s

I think one of the reasons why I loved this show was also one of my biggest gripes with it — it was hopeful, but sometimes too hopeful. That made its story heartwarming, but it also ended up oversimplifying problems at times. For example, Young-bae’s now more generous with deadlines, and he even shows concern for his authors’ health. That’s because he’s now the new deputy editor, and he can afford to take things slow instead of rushing deadlines to meet sales requirements like before.

Perhaps this was intended to show that Young-bae was a good person all along and was merely constrained by circumstances. Except this insinuates that the moment things take a turn for the worse, he’s going to go straight back to being unreasonable and uncompromising. This narrative robs him of character growth, and feels somewhat like a cop-out.

“Today’s

I suppose that’s why it’s difficult to sum up how I feel about this drama, since its many contradictions give me mixed feelings. I appreciated the sensitivity with which it handled its character’s struggles; for example, I thought Ma-eum’s guilt over hurting her friend and her struggle to find a new identity outside of judo was woven quite well into her character trajectory, shaping her decisions and outlook on life. Similarly, Joon-young’s gradually growing trust in the team felt organic, making it all the more rewarding when he finally developed a sense of belonging there.

Yet, other crises were dialed up to the max for dramatic effect, which diluted the realism and broke immersion. Perhaps some of it could be chalked up to an intentional quirkiness that was meant to reflect a webtoon style, such as Han-seul’s childlike temper tantrums. However, others came across as contrived, such as that one week when the drama piled on problem after problem onto Dae-ryuk in quick succession.

“Today’s

In addition, I found the drama’s pacing uneven at times. Often, it would spend several scenes on setting up a seemingly important plot point, only to have it resolved all too simply and quickly. The most recent example would be Writer Baek’s storyline this week; after a successful surgery for his back pain, he didn’t regain consciousness for a while, making everyone worry a fair deal until he eventually woke up.

This allowed the show to touch on the topic of how much webtoon artists are willing to risk for their careers, but it also felt like a way to manufacture a cliffhanger ending for Episode 15. Which didn’t even work, because I’m pretty sure all of us expected that Writer Baek would come out of it safe and sound.

“Today’s

That’s primarily because the drama has demonstrated a consistent pattern of choosing a happy ending over leaving things unresolved or bittersweet. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, and in my opinion, it works in the context of this show. While some of us may prefer our slice-of-life dramas a tad more realistic, I think this tale was always about hope.

In a world where we may often find ourselves worn down by our circumstances and our struggles, Today’s Webtoon reassures us that it’s okay to persevere and pursue what truly makes us happy. Not everything may work out the way we want it to, but we’ll learn and grow along the way, and the journey may end up being our most precious takeaway.

“Today’s

Where the drama falters, then, is when it prioritizes a hopeful plot over organic and genuine character growth. I’ve already said my (strongly opinionated) piece on Dae-ryuk’s character arc last week, but I’m still upset over how his character was shortchanged and the dangerous message about trauma that was conveyed as a result. I know the drama wanted him to end up happy, but it shouldn’t have come at the expense of a proper trauma recovery process.

Dae-ryuk has made leaps and bounds from where he first started, and I’m so proud of him for his growth and how he’s overcome his trauma. Yet I can’t bring myself to be as enthused as Ma-eum is about it, because he could have gotten there via a different path — preferably one that involved therapy and a solid support system, instead of him being shoehorned into forgiving his abuser. Still, I’m glad that Dae-ryuk is free of his metaphorical shackles, and that he’s finally found hope and happiness in his life. (And I’m gonna go watch a happier Kim Do-hoon in The Law Cafe!)

“Today’s

One thing I particularly liked about this drama was how it set up plot points that seemed inconsequential and purely for laughs at first, only to have them become plot-relevant and come full circle later on. One example is the webtoon review channel run by Ma-eum’s sister; it was a pleasant surprise to have her platform be the key to resolving Dae-ryuk’s false allegations, as well as the catalyst to sisterly bonding. Plus, she had her own mini growth arc through realizing how deeply malicious comments can cut, and learning how to use her influence for good.

Since I haven’t read the webtoon that this drama was based on, I don’t know how much of this ought to be credited to the original work, but I do think the drama did a good job of bringing these arcs to life in an amusing and endearing way. As much as Writer Oh and PD Doo-hee’s scenes were mostly played for comedic effect with not much impact on the main storyline, I found myself developing a soft spot for their antics by the end of the show. I also really liked how Woo-jin’s webtoon was used to parallel the drama’s loveline; it was cutely creative, and I enjoyed her recurring appearances.

“Today’s

Above all, though, I loved how the drama handled our central trio of characters. Perhaps the romantic payoff (or relative lack thereof) might not feel all that satisfying to some viewers, but I liked that the boys’ feelings arose as a result of how much Ma-eum helped them grow as people. She spurred them to reflect upon themselves and confront the fears they’d been repressing, allowing them to find closure and gain the strength to move on.

Similarly, both of them have inspired and supported Ma-eum in their own ways. Thanks to their guidance and encouragement, she’s grown into a more mature, thoughtful, and considerate version of herself. Beyond the romance, this is a trio that has one another’s backs through thick and thin.

“Today’s “Today’s

I’ll admit I started this show purely for the main cast, since I loved them all in their previous roles. Kim Se-jung is simply a breeze to watch; her effervescent exuberance always brought a smile to my face every week, and I liked the touch of vulnerability she gave Ma-eum.

Nam Yoon-soo was adorable as the awkwardly reserved Joon-young, and it was so endearing to watch his heart gradually thaw out as he developed feelings for Ma-eum. (If you want to watch him in another cutely lovestruck puppy role, I’d recommend the web drama The Temperature of Language: Our Nineteen!)

Of course, Daniel Choi is great in the mentor role, as always — I first watched him in School 2013, and while he was certainly more prickly there, he has a reassuring presence that exudes a steady dependability.

“Today’s

Today’s Webtoon may have its shortcomings, but if I’m willing to overlook them and suspend my disbelief in certain scenes, I think I still enjoyed the drama a fair bit. Just like how the team healed one another and grew together over the course of the show, their determined optimism and words of wisdom touched my heart. As much as the plot could be frustrating at times, the central tale was one that offered comfort and warmth, and many of its quotes will stay with me. One particularly poignant line I liked was uttered by Dong-hee this week:

Just because we’ve woken up from a dream today, doesn’t mean we can’t dream again tomorrow. There’s always room for hope; where one door closes, another opens. Just as the sun always rises every morning, heralding the start of a new day, we can always pick ourselves back up and continue onwards towards what makes us happy.

@solstices thanks for a lovely weecap of the finale and the show as a whole. There was much to be enjoy as well as despair over and on the whole I am pleased I watched it as it was interesting to see the very marked differences between the two cultural perspectives on the webtoon. I completed the Japanese version first as it was shorter and appreciated the differences between the two as one focused on the online and the other on the printed versions of the comic format.

I loved the fact we got to see the brighter surprisingly cute Daeryuk emerging from the shapeless dark clothes and unflattering hairstyle.

I love that the sister had the parents support with her new version of her show and no longer felt that she was in her Maeum’s shadow. It was great that the family was already running their own comic cafe so it made sense for both daughters to have careers in that field too.

There were so many things I loved about the concluding episodes. One of which is that fact that we were given two perspectives of shadow people could be. Whether they found the limelight like Nu-ri or they utilized their shadow persona like Ji-Hyeong, they landed in good places.

Daeryuk betraying Ma-eum like that 🤭🤭.

It was fine. It some really great family and work stuff. I am actually glad there wasn't a romance. However, I didn't like that the last story was a "redemption" for the jerk co-worker. He is lucky the writer didn't burn out completely.

CEO Yoon : I wanted to learn from you...How to be cool. I also wanted to teach you...how to be powerful.

I guess Yoon embarked on the journey to hone the skill of the other and she reached it in no distant time. All of this while I had seen Man-cheol play cool to perfection, it looks to me like another sweet gratifying journey to see him start to embark on the journey for power, beginning with that final board room meeting. That's how you roll. Had he gotten in the game sooner he'd have utilized Director Heo's machinations to the betterment of Neon Webtoon Team. Well, better late than never. And I'll welcome a romance spin-off of Man-cheol and CEO Yoon. An episode special is enough.

Young-bae’s now more generous with deadlines...it's a cop out
I feel a bit differently from this due to the timing between when he dropped the adjusted schedule. Timing is really important, and the fact that he let the uneasiness settle in to the heart of the new artist before talking about the chance of having an adjusted schedule gave the impression that he's not losing that sharp brittle edge he has.

Ji-Hyeong becoming CEO is very fitting and conclusive. He got something more than an Editor at Youngtoon would fetch him.
Ma-eum working with PD Kwon 😅...what sweet loving begrudging alliance do you have in store had this play out. I guess this is left to my imagination.
Tough dad with the kind heart. Ma-eum's Appa is an adorable man, big time.
And Artist Baek Eo-jin. He lived.
Pomme getting easily under Joon-young's skin🤭🤭

And we also had Dong-hee. I was wondering what they were doing still keeping him around but dang! they had so much impactful things to do with his character.
Im Chul-soo's Na Gang-nam has me thinking he's a squishy teenager.
This finale episodes had me feeling good and almost all was forgiven. I had lots of laughs, and some really cool dopamine moments. At the end of it all I'd call it a nice wrap.

The last two episodes felt like pouring a box of sugar into a cup of coffee. Everything wrapped up too nicely. The bubbly personality of KIm Se-Jeong can hold the lead position in a light drama but to sustain that positivity to the end is a grind. It happened in BUSINESS PROPOSAL and it happened here.

I have not read the source material or the Japanese version because I believe an adaptation should stand on its own. I think there were some major choice disappointments in the script. I would have swapped out the whole artist Shin arc for more interaction with Ma-Eum’s family members. The real tension, strong personalities, banter and life decisions were there as a resource that never saw its full potential. I also think the Pomme arc got a short-circuited to by the end a mere cameo. If there were to be an office romance, it could have been JY and Pomme because she actually liked him. Artist’s Na’s relationship with his girlfriend had a bright and fun beginning in sync with the first episodes' comedy element, but it too was set aside for boring office politics. Daniel Choi was more a cartoon cut-out than an engaged, dynamic tutor which is a shame since he is a talented actor.

The work place decision making, rookie over-responsibilities and secrets from superiors were the most teeth grinding things to watch. You could not suspend belief if you ever worked in office. What was a pencil stab to the throat in the final episodes was the point that PD editors do not edit their artists’ manuscripts. Huh? It diminishes their duties to being life coach babysitters.

Any romance elements were DOA, which is fine if you were going for a slice-of-office life show. But adding broken past relationships and uber shy non-confessions did not add any character development. It was clear from the beginning that Ma-Eum was not interested in anything except work. She really viewed webtoon co-workers as colleagues and not friends which makes sense since she wanted to earn a full time position on her talent.

The open ending of crossing the bridge may a cynical viewer pause . . . are the producers looking for a season two? I hope not.

In the end it was an average drama with no ground breaking story lines and more than few script stumbles along the way.

I liked the 3 main characters. I liked to see their growth and how they interacted and helped each others.

I liked the different webtoons, they made me curious and wanted to read them.

The different stories behind the writers were pretty much all disapointing... Either it was very cliché or too optimistic.

The fact there wasn't a romance didn't bother me. Ma-Eum already had enough to handle in her life (but I was team Ji-hyung 🤣)

The two final episodes, they're a good wrap in my book :)

The only disappointment that bothered me quite a lot about this drama is the way it handled Da Ryuk trauma of his childhood, I was furious to the reveal of the reason behind his mother act, however my whole feeling about this drama is still a good one since this is a show that has so many elements that I love in a kdrama:
1. The Characters
- a heroine with a joyful character (KSJ play this to perfection, i love her MaEum)
- a mature ML who supported the growth of the FL, and learning from her too (and concealing his feeling because it's complicated otherwise)
- a younger ML who started as a cynical char towards life in general but gradually learned and healed, and fallen for our FL
- 'side character' that has come long way, and becoming my favorite for his arc aside from the trio (Dong Hee, i'm talking about you, all the very best in life)

2. Warm family
a loving mom, and a bit spoiled sister, but seriously, everytime Dad come to screen I just wanna laugh for his gruff, and hug him for his antics haha,

3. Life lessons
things that I've experinced making me nod on some scenes, and the quotes are lovely reminder of life lessons, I think they made good use of the title for each ep too, nice touch. And JiHyoung using the coin for buying drink?
this is an ending to a lucky charm that I thought I would never get in a kdrama.
Prop to the story for encouraging us to rely on our effort and determination, and not luck.

Finally, about the 'romance', i was always team JiHyung, so my heart sank for the scenes in the last eps, they are the tropeee (tying FL shoelaces, drawing each other cutely and stamped the drawing side by side, walking the FL and ensuring she got in to the cab safely eventhough he brought his own car, gosh writer nim, all those trope but no loveline tk them? that's cruel! kekeke),
but, I've grown to love joon young in the last eps, he's worthy of MaEum too if she decided to accept him as a BF.
his arc is satisfying , and I gigled when I see he saved MaEum's number with a heart, oh why you're so cute haha

I got the joy of watching this show, thing that i don't want to take for granted these days in dramaland, and reading weecap and comments here has enhanced that joy, so thank you for staying with me on this journey all beanies and @solstices :)

Thank you, solstices, for a really clear and comprehensive weecap. I dropped Webtoon for many of the negatives you addressed, but particularly the whole Dae-ryuk trauma and resolution. I'm a therapist, and as much as I love Kdramas, the way they deal with mental health issues makes my skin crawl. I wind up dropping a lot of super popular dramas (I'm looking at you- Kill Me, Heal Me). Melo is My Nature is one of the few that did a really good job of representing therapy.

But back to Webtoon - I returned for episodes 15 & 16 and I'm glad I did. It wrapped up with the same tone in which it started: light, warm, intimate without a lot of romance, which in this case I found appropriate. Many have described being disappointed with drama endings lately (me, too), but this was a disappointing middle for me.

@solstices thank you for your thoughtfulness in these recaps! I admit I'm left quite disappointed with this show. As I think back on it, I feel like the frustrating parts outweighed the sweetness overall. I just can't forgive or forget how they absolutely botched Dae-ryuk's storyline. I guess at least they didn't have him confess to Ma-eum or make it a weird triangle.

I thought Ma-eum and Joon-youn were super cute and I wish their ending wasn't so open-ended. Everything about the business side of things just made my head hurt. I wish the webtoon writers had gotten a bit more attention, there were lots of comedic moments that could've been expanded. I graded this one a 6.5 on MDL and I can't decided if that's too harsh or not but it suits my ambivalent feelings at this point.

Thanks solstices for the recap! I agree with a lot of your review.

I honestly wasn't in the mood for these last episodes, but they weren't too bad. Kinda fluff. They did a good job when it comes to the lighter, cute, and funny moments. I like the family scenes and the ones with Artist Yoon and his PD. The sisterly bond was nice too.

Dae Ryuk looked even more handsome with his new hairstyle~~
I like that they kept his dark circles lollll. XD

The show didn't handle the dramatic and traumatic parts well. Artist Baek's surgery was an ok thing to happen during his career. Something that was possible. But the fact that they used it to make a cliffhanger and to add some tension was annoying and unconvincing. Didn't they visit him right on the day of surgery? Couldn't they have visited him the next day? Didn't he wake the next day? I'm not sure. I was never worried. It wouldn't make sense to have a major death in the finale.

I'm glad the romance was not the main point of the drama. It was just enough. Woo Jin and Pomme teasing Joon Young was cute.

Came out of this drama still liking Kim Se Jung a lot and now I've discovered Kim Do Hoon~~ Hope he does well in the future with more roles. It also seemed like she had fun acting extra and giving more expressions in the finale (I shared gifs on my fanwall.)

Thanks for the weecaps @solstices! The drama would probably have done better with 12 episodes, I thought the political stuff went on too long. I liked the character development of the main characters, but it was surrounded by a lot more that could have been developed better.

Thanks for a really thoughtful set of ending comments @solstices. I agree that we had a set of really charming characters but that their storylines weren't developed in the best way. I genuinely loved all the artists - but wanted more for Pomme, wanted Daeryuk to start healing through the realisation of his dream not a breath-takingly poor reconciliation, wanted Kangnam to do more than become a besotted baby-bump lover and so on. The artists held so much potential as characters and I think a trick was missed by having so many side-characters that inevitably we couldn't develop them all. Shame, but I did look forward to watching it each week and NYS's smile will always have a place in my heart.
