Old Nine Gates 老九门 - Episode 32 (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on October 21, 2016
kakashi: We're (almost) done with the fillers! Yaaaaaay! Fo Ye is back! Well, "back". And Lt Zhang is da bomb.
SakiVI: Seriously, during these episodes I almost jumped bias ship.

Ice Fantasy 幻城 - Episode 21 (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on October 20, 2016
kakashi: We spend most of this episode watching people fight over who should be the next Ice King. It's the first slightly boring episode of the entire drama. Shi is still beautiful. As is Kasuo. Less beautiful though: that ring Shi is holding in the picture below.
I like Shi's headpiece, though.  And the slightly pinky tone they give his outfit to highlight his dewy freshness.
That ring is pretty ugly. But Shi just takes my breath away.

Old Nine Gates 老九门 - Episode 31 (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on October 19, 2016
kakashi: There is a lot of Lt Zhang in this episode and he is awesome. A W E S O M E. Lean back and enjoy the pretty and leave your brain at the door. We're still in filler-land.
SakiVI: At least we have our lovely Visual and our lovely Chieftain and our clever, clever Ba Ye.

Ice Fantasy 幻城 - Episode 20 (Recap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on October 18, 2016
kakashi: Another episode brimful with excitement and plot development! Lian Ji/Lotus gets more serious about placing her son on the throne, Kasuo expresses his deepest wish and Shi knows, the solution to Kasuo's problem is very, very simple. If only there weren't so many powerful people deadset on having Kasuo on that throne!
Just let Kasuo go, people.  He's boring and emo and Shi is just gorgeous and will noona-kill in his Ice King robes.
Seriously. Shi is powerful enough to do it. Kasuo doesn't want to be king and has no power. Why is it so important that it be him, no matter what? We start to get an inkling that there's more to the story in this episode, but until now I just thought it was the Ice King's stubbornness.

Rants and Weekly Raves #109 (RAWR)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on October 17, 2016
kakashi: Lee Sang-swoon is doing it again - I'm under his spell. Twenty Again was pretty much a year ago and now it's happening again. Plus, he even has a Nespresso machine!  
SakiVI: I am now increasingly intrigued. Sadly, no time..... 
Oups, I spoke too soon. I started. And I need to drop things.
Shuk: I'm gearing up for two weeks of out-of-town and out-of-country. So I'm loathe to start anything new.
Sigh, I'd love a passionate kiss with someone cute.


ToGetHer 愛就宅一起 - Episode 4 (A Contest SqueeCap)

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on October 17, 2016
kakashi: Our OTP is far from ready to admit they have growing feelings for each other, but their actions and reactions betray them to the people close to them. It doesn't get any easier, for both of them - some hard times are ahead, with room for misunderstandings But they care about each other's opinion and because of that, they talk to each other. Talking is good.
Sparks: This was one of the hardest episodes for me to watch. But it's a baby-step in the right direction and I'm all for them getting closer!
Trotwood: Yup. No rewatching for me. I usually rewatch an ep before commenting, but it was painful for me as well.
SakiVI: I ... did not have such a strong reaction, lol.
JoAnne: I thought this was incredibly sad, poor girl.
Shuk: She is a little trooper. But then she's had to be most of her life.

Cinderella And Her Four Knights - Episode 7 (A YawnCap)

Posted by CM Shukmeister on October 15, 2016
Shuk: The show has completed its run on TvN, but we still plod on, one painful episode at a time. (Trotwood: I'm here for you, Shuk!-giving you a virtual consoling pat on back) Still, it gives us time to think about the existential characteristics of our primary characters, the neopragmaticism of their actions, and whether Eastern epistemology can explain their behaviors. Or maybe I should have another shot of soju and listen to Tropical Storm Matthew rage overhead. Yeah, that last one makes more sense.
Jaehyus: I'll hope that Eastern epistemology can explain their behaviors.
Several of our regular commenters are buried by RL, so hopefully they will come back soon. Aja aja fighting!
JoAnne: *waves weakly*

Old Nine Gates 老九门 - Episode 30 (Recap)

Posted by SakiVI on October 15, 2016
SakiVI: In which Ba Ye and Lt Zhang become a pretty lady's white knights. We also get some villain-side story, but it's pointless and covered only in case there are any Nose fans reading this. Skip over and read the Ba Ye & Lt Zhang parts only if you want.
kakashi: I call this episode Traps in the Swaps. Because I'm very, very tired and I find that really funny right now. Don't ask. Don't judge.
It's funny.
