Ice Fantasy 幻城 - Episode 7 (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on August 30, 2016
This episode introduces JoAnne's favorite Ice Fantasy character: The Tiger Demon! Sadly, it's only a very short appearance. But never fear! There is tons of excitement again while the first of the ice crystal leaves is found ... and lost again. Oh well, don't be sad. There will be other chances.
SakiVI: This Tiger Demon was very Doctor Who. The old Doctor Who where Daleks were clearly made of tin foil. Okay, maybe it was a little bit better quality than that. Actually, looking at it again, I rather like the eye makeup.
JoAnne: I mean, come on. They didn't even try. Some producer's theater-major kid wanted a summer job and here you go: Cats, WAY off-Broadway!

Rants and Weekly Raves #102 (RAWR)

Posted by JoAnne on August 29, 2016
kakashi: Real life's a biatch. And is Korea crazy? too many dramas.
JoAnne: Ain't it the truth? I came home last night, queued up Moonlight. Before it even started, I was asleep. I woke up at midnight, watched it (loved it) then went to bed.
Jaehyus: Three 50 episode dramas are starting this weekend. Too much, too much. Okay, one of them has Rim, but it's the one about tailors that's caught my eye.
Three? I know two of them...Rim and the tailor one. What's the other?
Jaehyus: it's called Blow Breeze. Anyway, no subtitles, no care.
Trotwood: Not watching much and already feeling a loss because I know I will get to watch less with the students coming back to school for fall term.
Anyway, welcome to another very red RAWR!

~Save a puppy, watch~ Soredemo, Ikite yuku それでも、生きてゆ

Posted by MilaOnZeWeb on August 28, 2016

Hellooooo people ! Remember me ? No ? Well, I don’t blame ya. So allow me: my name is Mila, and more than a year ago, I wrote two posts (that, considering the length of them, you probably finished reading right about now, so it all works out in the end, yay) on this website, talking about older dramas, from 2001, and from 2002. Though I only wrote part1 of the 2002 post. Because then life got in the way, I also fell in a drama hiatus that lasted a long, LONG, OMGTHATWASSOLONG time. But I’m back, and being back, I’ve been wanting to write in English again, abusing Kakashi’s and all the good people of PotUp’s hospitality, because I was poorly brought up that way, I guess (no, I kid, my parents were great, I just failed them a lot). But while I wanted to write, I needed a theme, and I wasn’t quite ready to start on 2002 again since I needed to rewatch quite a few dramas before I was able to tell you about them. “Okay” I thought “you could just jump ahead, and go to a year that’s fresher in your memory”. BUT THAT’S CHEATING. And don’t get me wrong, I love cheating, I do it on a daily basis and bathe in the glory of it, but cheating only works if you don’t get caught, and I knew I would get caught this time. So I wondered “what else can you do, Mila ? What are you good at ?”, and stared into the void

The Disguiser 伪装者 - Episode 41 FINAL (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on August 26, 2016
Get ready for the final episode. Yes, you will need tissues. Of course you will need tissues. Did you think we'd get a happy ending? I'm beginning to suspect Chinese dramas never have happy endings.
Damn you, drama. I'm getting all dry from crying... less because I'm stricken with grief though and more because I don't like this ending at all.
JoAnne: On a certain level, I think it's a good ending. But as far as feeling satisfied for people I cared about, no - not a good ending at all, because it's not an ending at all.
Eleanor: I don't think we could have had a good ending without something like this though. I think they sort of went with the least sad ending that they could have.

Ice Fantasy 幻城 - Episode 6 (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on August 25, 2016
kakashi: Healer Boy Huang Tuo finds his twu wuv, Kasuo finds Shi, and then, everybody goes chasing the ice crystal, which - surprise!! - isn't as lost as Healer Boss wanted everybody to believe. I love how Kasuo and Li Luo totally ship Healer Boy and his twu wuv, even though she doesn't even know she is the twu wuv. Everybody is so awwwwww.
SakiVI: Yay for Twu Wuv!  Looks like it might be on the cards for Yan Da and Shi, too, though not in such an emotionally healthy way.
JoAnne: This guy looks like Siwon-light. It was very distracting.


The Disguiser 伪装者 - Episode 40 (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on August 25, 2016
This penultimate episode is Ah Cheng's episode ... and Liang's. Ah Cheng keeps cleaning up mess after mess and finds a rather unexpected helper in Liang. More danger is averted and more people die, but the Mings are never safe. Should we be glad all three brothers are still alive at this point - or does that mean we should fear the end of this show?
JoAnne: I keep waiting for one of them to die! Not that I want them to...but could it really happen? Could they all survive?
Eleanor: Maybe they will all die. Noooooooooooo!!!!

Ice Fantasy 幻城 - Episode 5 (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on August 24, 2016
The quest for the ice crystal begins! First up, the Healer Tribe. As their name says, they're all healers. There is human tragedy too, because the young son of the Healer Boss is about to be forced into a marriage with a woman he does not want. Oh, and Prince Shi surprises us all by ... well, turning into a hot namja.
SakiVI: A lot of Prince Shi's existence is a mystereeeeeeeee! The hot namja part doesn't hurt, though.
JoAnne: Both brothers are attractive but yeah, Shi... yum.
