First Episodes: A Taste Test

29 Oct

As an official simulcaster now, I looked through the currently running shows and realized I’d seen 3 first episodes. Which got me thinking…rather than doing the Hot/Cold post I’d planned on recently completed shows, judging their worthiness for a spot on the coveted TBWList, I’d change it up. Try the first episodes, a first taste if you will, of the currently running dramas to see if they could hook me into watching the rest.

I came across some interesting results: shows I expected to come through with flying colors stumbled at the gate, leaving me with a bad taste, and others, that I hadn’t considered before surprised me with an unexpected dose of yum.

Now here are a few things to keep in mind. I only watched first episodes. I’m sure some of these got better as they went along, but that doesn’t count. And, I was lazy. I only watched shows available on my TV, so I did miss Medical Top Team and Scandal. But beyond that? I’m feeling quite proud of this accomplishment! I feel like a regular simulcaster–who knew I had it in me?

Now there was one time where I would have been completely thrilled by this news.  After watchingA Gentleman’s Dignity I honestly thought Kim Eun Suk was my favorite writers—but then I started seeing more of her other work—Secret Garden, which, yes, lots of people love, and while I didn’t hate it, I had some problems with it. After watching On Airmy esteem sank more. And thenHeirshappened. This has all forced me to even remove the rose colored glasses, look deep into the heart of A Gentleman’s Dignity and admit to its flaws as well.
The bloom is off this rose.

It had to happen eventually. First shots of the upcoming drama, Heirs have been released and with it, as expected, my interest has grown from–Groan, really?–to Hmm…maybe. Which doesn’t seem like it is a big change, but when the groan is accompanied by an uncontrollable eye-roll? Well, it’s a step in the right direction.  Continue reading

Heirs Irritates the Competition

LAUGH! This information just tickles me. Remember how I was saying that Heirs and it’s incessant casting news was boring me? Apparently I’m not the only one who’s noticed the drama snatching up all the best and brightest. I read an article which said that drama officials are complaining that there’s nobody left for them! That they are having trouble casting their own dramas for the fall because of this. Continue reading

Yep, that’s pretty much been my thought process since Cherry Cordial pointed out the news that LEE MIN HO

Yep, that’s pretty much been my thought process since Cherry Cordial pointed out the news that LEE MIN HO has been cast in a new drama. Well, I should also clarify, the actual scream didn’t let loose until I read that the writer is Kim Eun Sook. I’m a huge fan.

Lee Min Ho? Kim Eun Sook? Continue reading
