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...

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.

Saner,... Continue Reading →

18 Again: Episodes 13-14 Review

Saner and I are without our Saya today, because she’s off doing important and busy things, but we have plenty to say about the penultimate week of 18 Again between the two of us. We’ve got revelations, long-awaited conversations, and confessions galore. Much of it was lovely, but there were aspects that drove us to... Continue Reading →
