I believe in working my way up, so let's start with the bad. WTF, eps 11-12 of TTBY? How is it possible for my cute fluffy drama to go so boring? The fact that these eps focused mainly on the secondaries is a big big problem. I just don't find Eun Gyul either cute or compelling (I know, I know, minority of one) and why they thought spending a lot of time on Hana or Tae Joon/Hana would be of interest to anyone is one of the world's big mysteries. On the plus side, all that fast-forwarding saved me a lot of time so yay?

Worth checking out solely for this:



More plot-relevant caps )

Now, on to the mediocre, namely May Queen. I am in with this for the long haul (once again, with plentiful strategic fastforwarding) because I love the actors of the main trio and their chemistry and interactions are compelling, but my impression that this drama is written by brain-dead hamsters on a tight deadline has not lessened (why is this getting better ratings than the vastly superior Five Fingers again?) The way the whole 'is she my daughter? nope, probably not' thing is handled in this ep would have made my eyes fall out of my sockets if I felt invested enough in the ludicrous birthplot to care. I am beginning to believe pretty much every character in this except for the trio, In Hwa, and the uncle and aunt have cement for brains. This said, HJH is a darling, Jae Hee is doing his best in a role that is not making me ship him with HJH (grow a spine, dude! Go Oedipal on Daddy!) and the whole thing is worth watching for the marvelous faces Kim Jae Won makes. Why so darling, KJW! The drama gets about 50x better any time he is on-screen and he and HHJ have lovely chemistry. Can we ditch the rest of the waterlogged plot and just concentrate on them shipbuilding and enacting the most adorable revenge on everyone? Or something. I mean, who could say no to this face:



Some caps )

And now on to the good - episode 4 of Nice Guy. Even cranky and sick me was not immune to how good this was. One of the things I love about this drama is that scenes are given room to breathe, characters (incredibly complex and fascinating) are given room to develop and process...



More thoughts and a ton of caps )

And that's it for today, folks!
