Sisyphus: The Myth: Episodes 15-16 Finale Review

Prelude If you’ve ever read I Capture the Castle (Dodie Smith), you might remember its iconic opening line: “I write this sitting in the kitchen sink.”  I write this before the finale of Sisyphus, and maybe even the act of this preface before the grand finale is giving the experience more importance than it merits.… Continue reading Sisyphus: The Myth: Episodes 15-16 Finale Review

Sisyphus: The Myth: Review 13-14

Days away from the nuclear attack, Tae-sul and Seo-hae begin to finally use their knowledge of their own past attempts to change this future against Sigma. In a story where the villains are sticking hard to the timeline of previous pasts, so the future remains the same, the protagonists maybe should have started using this… Continue reading Sisyphus: The Myth: Review 13-14

Sisyphus: The Myth: Episodes 11-12 Review

Ahhhh this show. How can we be down to a mere 72 hours until the Apocalypse? 😱 Also, how can I gather all my scattered thoughts and pin them down to a coherent body, fixed in time? (Spoiler: not coherent, a LOT of words.) First things first, though: that OST you’ve all been waiting for… Continue reading Sisyphus: The Myth: Episodes 11-12 Review

Sisyphus: The Myth: Review 9-10

This review is a week late, but not because of a lack of enthusiasm. Sisyphus decided to take almost all of my complaints and burn them in a heap of glory from episode 7. The editing got tighter, the pace got faster, and the story became magnificent. Sisyphus in the last two weeks has been… Continue reading Sisyphus: The Myth: Review 9-10

Sisyphus: The Myth: Episodes 7-8 Review

Friends, we have reached the halfway point, and...this week’s episodes were rather magnificent? I mark that as a question because while I am positive that I LOVED them, I am also feeling slightly uncertain about whether my opinion is to be trusted given that there’s a lot of naysaying for the show out there. Of… Continue reading Sisyphus: The Myth: Episodes 7-8 Review

Sisyphus: The Myth: Episode 6 Review

Dear Reader, we love that you're on this ride with us through each and every episode, but after some discussion (and too many late night texts), we've decided to be smart about our recapping commitments here. Sisyphus: The Myth will get one weekly recap post from next week. We'll still bring you our thoughts, but… Continue reading Sisyphus: The Myth: Episode 6 Review

Sisyphus: The Myth: Episode 5 Review

And now for some real answers! This episode, Seo-hae and Tae-sul get to know each other beyond the superficial running-for-their-lives + adversarial banmal stage (yep, this is the one that stuck in my head, kind of like the first answer you write on the test paper). Unfortunately, I’m still not quite where I’d anticipated with this… Continue reading Sisyphus: The Myth: Episode 5 Review

A Drama for Every Day of the Week, and Wandering Reviews of All of ‘em

Times, Sisyphus, Vincenzo, oh my! There’s a drama for every day of the week and that is not even an exaggeration!  Because I have not yet learned wisdom, I checked out EVERYTHING. Well, everything except Hello, Me, which my youngers and betters have helpfully reviewed already: check out Paroma in a snazzy video-review, and Anisa… Continue reading A Drama for Every Day of the Week, and Wandering Reviews of All of ‘em

Sisyphus: The Myth: Episode 4 Review

A bright, new day for scavenging through a dead city with my accessorized AK-47 Badass Ninja Becomes a Real Girl I needed those first ten minutes with Seo-hae this week, wandering the streets of her post apocalyptic world, scavenging coins from corpses and humming to BTS's Spring Day, with her trusty pink machine gun and… Continue reading Sisyphus: The Myth: Episode 4 Review

Sisyphus: The Myth: Episode 3 Review

What I like most about this show is the atmosphere it creates, with its pervasive sense of unease that runs through the whole episode, no matter what is happening. It adds a lot to the soft worldbuilding approach of the show, so rather than getting info-dumps interspersed within blocks of plot movement, you actually get… Continue reading Sisyphus: The Myth: Episode 3 Review
