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?

What A Tease!

14 Jun
Lookee what I found. It’s teaserapalooza over here! I’ve always been a big fan of movie trailers. I actually won’t go to a movie if we’re going to miss the trailers. Why is that important? Uh. It’s not really. I just think it’s funny, looking at American movie or even tv show ads where we’re not so much teased as we are given the entire plot.
Not so much with Kdrama.
With Kdrama, teasers are usually doesn’t give me any information as to what the show is going to be about. It could be that it’s so early in the game even the PD’s don’t really know waht the show is going to be about? It’s probably more the case that the teasers aren’t translated and I just have no idea what’s actually going on.
WHY DO I STILL NOT SPEAK KOREANNNNN????

Scandal!

5 Jun
ScandalMind? Blown. So I clicked on a link talking about Kim Jae-won’s first day’s shooting of a new drama. Since Can You Hear My Heart and being replaced by Yoon Shi Yoon on Me Too, Flower! after Kim was hurt during filming, ┬áhe’s been on my radar. So a new drama that I wasn’t aware of? Well, my interest was caught.
The premise seems really interesting too. The drama is called Scandal and is set to air after Hundred Year Inheritance finishes up its run later this month. It’s scheduled for 36 episodes. (Does Kim Jae-won only want to do the really long dramas? Can You Hear My Heart and May Queen were both over 30 double the usual episode count. Is he a glutton for Kdrama live-shoot punishment?)
