Nirvana in Fire 琅琊榜 - Episode 39 (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on May 29, 2016
kakashi: He is going down! He is going down! Xiajiang is going dooooooown!
JoAnne: Now I want to see My Meng in a historical Chinese drama about a detective who goes around solving crimes and his signature move is shoving his badge in people's faces but something always goes wrong so he practices in the mirror over and over.
Eleanor: LOL That would be awesome.

Thumping Spike - Episode 1 (A Squeecap)

Posted by trot wood on May 26, 2016
Trotwood: I watched this whole show over a weekend in airports and in a foreign hotel. It’s exactly what I needed while prepping for an intensive Stats workshop—sports theme and romance. Just enough angst for a story but not so much that I was really worried. We also got some decent character development for a myriad of characters unlike the random flat side characters in Noble My Love. No. It doesn’t have Kang Swoon, but Song Jae Rim is in this and Jo’s tree puppy, Lee Tae Hwan, so you know we are in for some fun times. [The show is also known as Pounding Spike and Heart Thumping Spike.]
kakashi: Squeeeeeeeeeeee! It's Rim! It's a webdrama with very short episodes! It has really nice cinematography! I think I'm a little bit excited and not at all feeling like I need to snark. (Sidenote: I cannot gif this because I have not found any downloadable files in good quality)
Shuk: I don't know if I'll watch it, but I'll try to add in some gifs by Trot request.
JoAnne: For a drama I had no intention of watching this rapidly became something I didn't want to stop watching. And it wasn't JUST because of the boys, either.
Sure it wasn't. Honestly, it does just draw you in (and up that tree).

This is my first attempt at recapping so . . . have a little Patience.

Dramaworld - Episodes 9 & 10 (The End of Days)

Posted by JoAnne on May 25, 2016
JoAnne: Well folks, we're down to the last set of episodes. Much as we'd like to, we can't make it all about Seth after all. Other people did things that we liked, dammit. Why start NOW, show?
kakashi: Not me. I didn't like it. Didn't like it at all. I hated it. And only because it got the tiniest little bit better than before doesn't mean it is good.
Shuk: Aw, it wasn't that bad. But then, I was drinking absinthe when I watched it the first time.
Cookie: Absinthe! I've never tried it. Did you see the green fairy? They shouldn't have started filming until episode 9. Coz that's when people started getting comfortable.
They got cute and it's pissing me off

Nirvana in Fire 琅琊榜 - Episode 38 (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on May 24, 2016
kakashi: "This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill—the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill—you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember: all I'm offering is the truth. Nothing more." Nooooooo, Mei Changsu! Don't listen! Don't take any pills! Don't doooooo iiiiiit!
JoAnne: I have to keep reminding myself it's too soon for either of these men to die or else I get so anxious I have to look away.
Eleanor: Crap, oh crap. Oh crap. Noooooooooooo!!!!!

Rants and Weekly Raves #88 (RAWR)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on May 23, 2016
kakashi: No, I haven't grown tired of him yet. But I'm running out of things to watch. Oh well, I'll just rewatch everything. Plus, I just started Mr. Baek. You warned me people, but I'm still watching.
JoAnne: But his face looks a little photoshopped onto his skull, here. As if they took a head, added someone else's eyes, then someone else's mouth, etc.
What?! No. He is beautiful. Always. Especially in "All About My Romance" (screenshot from that). Soooo beautiful.  
Jaehyus: Oooh, that smile!
Oh for sure, he's adorable - but this picture is kind of weird, that's all.

Nirvana in Fire 琅琊榜 - Episode 37 (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on May 22, 2016
kakashi: As always, this episode takes some and gives some. One dangerous situation is defused easily, almost too easily?, but another almost immediately follows. Thank goodness Mei Changsu is in the full possession of his considerable wits at this point in time, he really needs them in his battle against the True Evil aka Xiajiang.
JoAnne: Is it really true that Xiajiang is being played by someone who is normally behind the scenes? Because I know he has a role in another drama, and also because he's doing such a good job here...
Eleanor: Yes, Xia Jiang is played by Wang Yongquan, an executive director. He is also trained as an actor and does act (he plays the dad of one of the characters in Ode to Joy), but he is mainly a director. He was executive director for All Quiet in Peking, Battle of Changsa, and many many other dramas.

Noble My Love - Episodes 19 to 20 FINAL (A SqueeCap)

Posted by CM Shukmeister on May 17, 2016
Enter the DragonMom! Nothing like bringing in more crap thirty minutes from the end of the show.
becca: *sneaks in for final squeecap* Warning: It's been months since I've watched this drama, and I think I've forgotten most of it.
All you need to remember is than Kang Swoon has a lot going on in his pants.
Blessed be the pants. All glory and honor to the pants.  Calls those pants Ms. Jackson, if you're nasty.
She was not what I expected.

Posted by JoAnne on May 16, 2016
JoAnne: Justin Chon continues to be our favorite thing about Dramaworld, and we here at PotUp would like to support his career. Thus, we present to you some of his other work, and ask that you support his sincere efforts as well. Hwaiting, Justin! BgA - Dong Saya Dae (똥싸야돼) M/V
kakashi: Awwwwwww, look at his hair! Much better than all the Eurovision hair I had to see yesterday. And the MV?! Hilarious. This is gold! And already more than 2mio hits?
Shuk: He was the character I most loved (except Siwon's adorable cameo). Best recurring character? Who cares? [thumbs up]
Cookie: I haven't seen it yet but I've heard its hilarious. I still walk around cackling at the little sister part.
