Tientsin Mystic - 河神 - Episode 6 (Recap)

SakiVI: More visions, more creepy villain, and a possible reason for the deaths.
kakashi: I guess I'm not as enthralled as you lot with this show. I often find it very draggy. This episode in particular, certain scenes went on and on and on.
JoAnne: I do like it, but you're right, there are times when it is very slow. By the way, did anyone notice the Snow Weasel on Evil Keebler's desk?

“And you guarantee this will work?” Shao Wan, whose name was Jiānguǒ (堅果) in this miserable life, frowned at the shaman in front of her. The one-eyed woman had lost most of her teeth and her tanned face was full of deep wrinkles that were like crevices of shadows in the flickering candle light. After entrusting her hard earned - and sometimes stolen - money to too many charlatans over the millennia, Shao Wan was naturally cautious about approaching the next mystic. But this one had caught her eye in curious ways on her stroll through the night market. Sitting outside her tent on a low stool, smoking her pipe with a content expression, this woman had not tried to draw potential customers’ attention like everybody else, but had simply surveyed the crowds like it was her favorite pastime. When their eyes met, Shao Wan had felt a strange falling into somebody’s arms through pink, soft clouds. Shao …

Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy 九州海上牧云记 - Episode 18 (Recap)

Panda: I must apologize for the break in recaps. I got swept up in movies and Prison Playbook for about a week and then RL showed me some “fun times”. I am back though and this is a very cool episode especially the beginning.
kakashi: Loved all the He Ye plus forest stuff.  I really dig that magician tribe.
JoAnne: I would love any tribe that could make me stop thinking about those disgusting Helan sibs.

Rants and Weekly Raves #177 (RAWR)

JoAnne: I have no hope of other voices this week, readers...Saki is in faraway lands eating delicious things, and Trot is in fly-over country but also eating delicious things. Kakashi is home and always eats delicious things (I do?), but will probably only talk about Mozart in the Jungle, which is back, yay! - so my one hope is Panda, may she have watched many shows this week. And now I'm hungry.
Trotwood: (running from the airport bus) I'm here! I'm here! Not caught up but here.
Panda: I am here with my trio of jdoramas :))
You guys, I missed you! Group hug!
KOREA Radio Romance  This week things took a real turn - we get a lot more insight into Soo Ho's feelings, we maybe get a reveal that Giddy Doc is not as benign as he seems, and our radio show begins to find its footing with the audience as the tv show begins to find its footing with us. I look forward to seeing if Geu Rim responds positively or not to Soo Ho's kiss - it would certainly take her by surprise b…

An eye for an eye, makes the whole world blind—Whoever had thought of this proverb was no doubt lying in his grave somewhere, wondering why he had been so naive and foolish.

Bai Qian was raised in a household with four brothers, would she have lasted this long had she applied this kind of virtue? Her father had taught her to be a reasonable person, and her mother had taught her to stand up for herself. So, if someone was good to her, she’d be good to them. If someone wronged her, she’d get them back.

Xiao Yu had been given a gash of retribution on his right butt cheek an hour ago, which Bai Qian thought was fair repayment for his treatment of her. So why was she the one tending to him now as he moaned and groaned?

After Moyuan had lifted Xiao Yu’s spell and transformed her back to her human form, he had given her a stern lecture and the task of bandaging up the wound she had caused…

“It’s been several days, Ye Hua.”

“Yes, Qian Qian, I know.”

“Then do something, Ye Hua!”

“What will you have me do, Qian Qian? Break into the cave?”

“Yes!”, Bai Qian exclaimed, sounding close to tears, “yes, you break into the cave and check on your Da-ge! It is your duty as his younger brother.”

“Here you go, Miss,” The friendly shopkeeper handed Bai Qian the change of two silver coins, which she took and left with the book she had bought for A-li: an anthropology on magical creatures written from a mortal’s point of view. Once she was out of the shop, Bai Qian headed straight for the teahouse where Moyuan was waiting, flipping through the pages on the way.

When she arrived, two thirds of the play about the butterflies seemed to have finished. She spotted Moyuan’s figure at a table on the second floor and started to walk up the stairs to him.
