So, no surprise to anyone that this week's eps of Nice Guy were excellent.

Thoughts and caps of two parallel scenes )

Ep 22 of Five Fingers was delicious.....

A few caps and thoughts )

1. [livejournal.com profile] lb_klove has made a wonderful Faith MV here. Check it out!

2. I've watched the first episode of The Paradise and hmmmm. As a British period drama, it's good, as an adaptation of Zola's novel, I feel all the sharp edges and dark corners have been smoothed and lightened out. MMV. It suffered, though, from my watching it in such proximity to the sublime Parade's End.

3. I never did get around to doing a proper post on the last week's eps of Nice Guy, did I? Oops.



I loved the episodes - paradoxically, even with amnesia and hematomas, they felt like the lightest, happiest, most hopeful episodes so far - mainly because the memory loss (EG) and the impermanence (Maru) has, oddly, freed them to be together with no baggage. And oh, how wonderful it is to see that enormous capacity Maru has for caring turn towards a worthy recipient. The episodes reenforce over and over again how little he even thinks of Jae Hee other than as a threat to EG - he doesn't even hate her any more, he just doesn't care. I love that.

4. I have a whole batch of caps for ep 17 of Five Fingers (yes, I am a few eps behind). I continue to enjoy the drama - I see complaints about it but I think it's excellent, mainly because the excellent cast elevates the material.

I have to run (this week, between being busy at work, baby mousie's illness and Mr. Mousie recovering from being sick last week, has been pretty insane - at this rate, all proper posts will have to wait until the weekend and then you'll get ten each day. I am pretty sure I am not getting to my Faith recaps until the weekend - haven't even watched the eps properly because it takes me hours with capping etc) but I couldn't go before gushing about how amazing, emotionally perfect and oddly hopeful ep 11 of Nice Guy was.

Love love love.

Also, I am so spoiling myself for the end of Arang and the Magistrate because I want to be prepared if it ends badly.

These are very much game-changers, but I shocked myself by loving them.

Lee Kyung Hee really knows how to do melodrama! I could barely breathe watching this. I have no idea how the characters got to this point (OK, I lied, I have some limited idea) but what strikes me is that it doesn't matter because while knowledge is absent, emotion is not. To me, this shows what the best dramas can do - to transcend logic and go straight for the heart. I don't mean that I don't want consistent, plot-hole-less writing from my dramas (and in any event, I have no idea if ep 9 of NG is logical or not as I have not yet seen it), but ultimately, what I really want - I want my dramas to make me feel, to transform me into another state of being entirely, so that any other issues, the logical brain part of me, ceases to matter.

And oooh boy, does that clip deliver that. Straight to the heart. I especially love that Maru says barely a word during the whole scene and yet you can feel his every emotion - sadness, guilt, longing, shock, love (yes, I do believe it's love), as clearly as if he's been shouting it.
