Apologies. I realize that this LJ turned into The Outsiders zone lately. But I have gone mad for it the way I haven't for any drama since Mars. And I only have five and a half eps left so it will be over realtively soon :)

Also, because I don't want to scare people off watching it, it's angsty but not depressing in the least. So go watch! :)



Thoughts on ep 15:

Oh Goddammit. I am barely five minutes into episode 15 and I am sobbing.

Stop doing it to me, drama. Because Ah Hao is completely drunk, and the annoying mainland girl goes looking for him and she finds him and asks if he is OK (lady, he is on the floor, crying. Chances are, no he isn't). And he is so out of it and so drunk that he actually sees her as Yu Yen and he starts saying Yu Yen's name and when he looks up at her and is all 'you've finally come, Yu Yen' and he is crying and smiling at the same time, like a temporary reprieve from hell, I...

GOD.

Incoherent rambling on first half of ep 15 )

And here are screencaps. Why, yes, they are mainly of Dylan Kuo.

Am currently learning how to hardsub. Am a geek but it's exciting. Let's see if it works. I also need to figure out which format I need to convert avi files into in order to make them DVD compatible. Any tips? (because it gives me different formats for output files but I don't know which one is DVD compatible). (Though I guess I might just spring for a DVD player that plays avi files, but still, want to know).

In other news. Yup, still on The Outsiders.



The thing is Hong Do is spot on in telling her she should try to be open with Ah Hao (not about the rape of course) and talk about 'flowers and piano' like she used to. That way Ah Hao won't be looking for shadows of Yu Yen everywhere, he'd have the real thing. But I love the look on YY's face when Hong Do says that. How can she be that simple happy girl again? She can't, not after that night when Bao Ge ripped all her innocence from her.

Thoughts on first half of ep 14 )

And here are some pics from that part.

Stills from end of 13 and first half of 14. Pain melting into sweetness )

ETA: OMG. I was going to post about all other sorts of things about the eps but.

sorry.

He just found out about her rape.

Oh GOD. The woobies have SO MUCH heartbreak. Because she did think he cheated (and omg his face when he found out that is what she thought) and she tries to be 'compliant' because she feels guilty in her lack but he interprets it as her not even caring enough to be upset that he was with another woman. ARGH.



And OMG. He ends up going to a club and getting drunk as fast as he can and is just with his head in his hands on the table and he is sobbing her name and FUCK.

Seriously. And then he comes home in the morning and by that point she found out the truth but he is all shut off again and FUUUUUUUCK.

Seriously, would it have been better for her to have told him about the rape? I mean, would the consequences be worse? Especially if Danzi already killed the rapist. (And they wouldn't need to let him know Bao Ge was behind it all).

Also, honestly. It's awesome to rescue Mainland Girl's cousin in abstract, but it's going to get them in a lot of trouble and possibly killed and a total stranger ain't worth it.

Some pictures )

P.S. I really like how Uncle Huai points out that not only Bao Ge is scum but the ultimate boss is too, and Ah Hao was foolish to get involved with them, and even more naive for talking about honor with them. And (I see foreshadowing here) adds that one of these days they'll sell him out. That's the problem, isn't it? Ah Hao isn't good enough for normal world, but too honest for the mob.

OMG. I interrupt my viewing for three reasons.

1. OMG. Hong Do is awesome. She is yelling at her boyfriend (the completely irrepressible Ah Qi) because he went to the brothel with Ah Hao and when he points out that Ah Hao was the one who left with two girls, he was all alone, she yells that this is what makes her angry the most.

And then she is all 'fine, whoring is good for you, but why must you drag Ah Hao in with you?' And when he (understandably incredulously) asks if Ah Hao's 'chastity' is more important to her than his own potential fooling around, OMG, I died. Because she yells something to the effect of 'yeah, whatever, you need to let steam off now and then and you don't get attached, and all you need is for me to straighten you out now and then, so that's fine. But you know how are things with Ah Hao and Yu Yen. They are different. They always get intense' or something to that effect. LOL. True, but LOL. Also, seriously, whie it's not my idea of a relationship, the secondary OTP has a really working well relationship.

2. YESSSSS! I just bought Sony 18x Internal Double/Dual Layer & Dual Format DVD Burner. Soon I can be couch potato when watching in the literal sense of the term.

3. On the minus side, my MPCPlayer picked this week to start having problems playing rmvb files. Booo. It played them smoothly for ages. And my Why Why Love files are in RMVB format and I wanted to watch a few minutes as a little winding down from the intensity of The Outsiders. Odd. I guess I'll download GOMPlayer as VLC doesn't play rmvbs. Boo. But hey, I think it's the only player I don't have installed yet :)

If Ah Hao ever cheats on Yu Yen with Xiao Die (the girl who reminds him of premob YY) this will be the weirdest proof of love ever but that is what it would be (not that I think he will or anything, though he might, just thinking). I know, it sounds insane, but it really just highlights how hung up he is on YY. Because he is so seeing XD as the earlier YY, his chance to treat YY right. Just look at his face when he sees XD all tarted up. He recognizes the necessity but it's like watching destruction of his YY all over again.

I am halfway through episode 12 of The Outsiders.

This is, honestly, the most complex drama I’ve seen. If I didn’t know better, I would have sworn it was an adaptation (or a transplantation actually) of those mid-century French and German novels I used to read.



On a more shallow front, Dylan Kuo has displaced Mike He as the second hottest Taiwanese guy I’ve ever seen. And the jury is out on whether he is going to displace Vic Zhou, up till now the hottest spot holder ;) And I definitely now get why Barbie Hsu went out with Blue Lan. Whoa.

Also, if Bali is a dark mirror to Hanadan, I think this is a dark mirror to Mars.

I looooooove it so much!

Though how I can both adore an OTP and wish they never met, is a mistery.

Thoughts on ep 11 )

ETA: Oh, I am such an idiot, I watched five minutes of ep 20. I am barely typing because I am crying so hard I can't see.
