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: 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 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

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

Sisyphus: The Myth: Episode 2 Review

I spent most of Episode 1 more confused than anything else, and with SO MANY QUESTIONS. We did get a few answers this hour, although they mostly led to more questions, but hey, it’s premiere week. I’m so glad we jumped into the action instead of having 1000 voiceovers explaining what’s going on. And I… Continue reading Sisyphus: The Myth: Episode 2 Review

Sisyphus: The Myth: Episode 1 Review

Guys I finished the first episode basically in one second (yes that’s a lie, it took me more like two hours) and I will start by saying: YES. Yes yes yes. Yes, give me this show. Yes, I am excited. Yes I am terrified. Yes, I am going to write nonsense and pretend it’s a… Continue reading Sisyphus: The Myth: Episode 1 Review

Drama Addict Diary: Uncanny Queens, Uniforms and More Jo Seung-woo

Friends. I think you will regret asking for more of these. It is untidy inside my brain. But with the overwhelming 100% POPULARITY of the last one, I felt like I had to at least let this one out. But don’t go thinking this is regular! I am a woman of limited and finite thoughts,… Continue reading Drama Addict Diary: Uncanny Queens, Uniforms and More Jo Seung-woo

Drama Addict Diary: Run On, Jo Seung-woo, and the Virtues of Scruff

Drama Addict Diary is back and it's very silly and trivial and full of pictures, even though I did not manage to stick in that one Lee Jun-ki one that I can't seem to let go of. This is a highly untidy version of what's been going on for me lately in drama-watching-land, and it's… Continue reading Drama Addict Diary: Run On, Jo Seung-woo, and the Virtues of Scruff
