Rants and Weekly Raves (RAWR) #388


Anne: Cedar!!! This very last week, just about everywhere in South Texas, this has induced all types of problems in my sinus. The congestion and coughing the tree pollen has inflamed was worse than obtaining contaminated with SARS-CoV2. If only we could build a vaccine versus allergies! It got bad adequate that I pretty much dropped my voice on Friday. I conducted a conference all by IM. It is a very good matter that they manufactured us all master typing abilities when I was in high university. In the course of my tutorial job, I had far more than 1 foreign graduate college student who asked whether I figured out typing all through school. I have always believed that this was something that was taught as a common rule. But then I remember that when I was in higher college, desktops ended up just commencing to arrive onto the marketplace. And we learned typing on the term processor. (Two factors to anybody on the web site who appreciates what this is.) Though I was in between coughing matches and sinus blockage, I was happily watching my two favorite dramas of this 7 days.


I was pleasantly surprised when I recognized that I was receiving far more than two episodes this week! This drama carries on to captivate and shock me. Each and every episode there is a thing new to discover, and it retains developing on what has now took place. As the viewers, you come to feel like the two qualified prospects, coming into new details that will help you recognize more and far more of the events that you hold reliving. When the qualified prospects determine to investigate which passenger on the bus is the bomber, the audience is released to facet characters that for the most portion, we would have rapidly forgotten. The way the story of each and every individual was told is an case in point of wonderful story telling and plot building. There is never any exposition, all the things is “proven” via steps. Practically nothing is spelled out like a lecture, all the responses the viewers arrives to understand. 

All the things up to episode 4 is all about the how, and anything else later on is about the why. Previous 7 days, I uncovered a whole lot of the plot. The how is just the beginning and with the exception of where by the bus explodes, there is just not really something that would ruin your satisfaction of the drama if you realized in advance of hand. Having said that, now that we are acquiring to know all the figures, and we are receiving to see what occurs each and every time that He Yun and Shi Qing resets their ride, there are some surprising and pretty jarring conditions that you have to knowledge for your self by watching it. 

Episode 8 is when we know who is the bomber. It is also the starting of some stunning times that I have rarely viewed portrayed so very well. There are only 15 episodes. And even even though the bomber is discovered at the halfway point, rely on me, each one episode afterwards will carry on to produce and interact your desire. I informed my spouse that after all the things is subbed in English, I will observe it all about it yet again with him.

Bad and Outrageous

With episode 10 remaining bumped for it’s airing routine final 7 days, we are only up to episode 11, and I have to wait around One Total 7 days to know how it all ends. In episode 10 and 11, what did we discover? We learn that when Soo Yeol was 13, he achieved a good friend, whom recognized the violence he suffered inside of his have home. The two boys had been really shut. And then the other boy advised a answer to their problem.

Soo Yeol wasn’t convinced that this was the way to go. 

By episode 11, the Russian/Korean drug gang plot closed as speedy as the “lousy” cops did formerly. In a collection of scenes that lasted <20 minutes (maybe not even), Boss Yong's righthand man, Andrei, died at the main "evil" character's hands. In her desire to get revenge on the murderer of her friend, Boss Yong turned herself in. (There are some serious logic issues with this show, but given that the ML is a cop with an imaginary friend...I just go with it.)

Now… it doesn’t take a genius to figure out who is the man behind the curtain, pulling the strings to lure Soo Yeol into his trap. Soo Yeol’s childhood friend is not exactly thrilled that Soo Yeol negated on their plan, and doesn’t appreciate how much better his life turned out to be after the death of his father. Joo Hyuk wants Soo Yeol to suffer. Now, what was a work of art is how Joo Hyuk did it all.

This is the smile of a man who is extremely satisfied with the result. (I don’t know why but I really like this still shot.)

[Off topic — every time I see the word ‘therapist’, I remember the old Jeopardy skit SNL did with “Sean Connery”. I can never stop equating ‘therapist’ with the rapist’. To this day, it is how I remember to spell the word.]

With his master plan seemly fulfilled, Joo Hyuk succeeded in putting our ML in a psychiatric hospital medicated to the point where K is no longer present. In the last 30 seconds of episode 11, we see that Soo Yeol never took the meds, and K is very much still hanging about in his life. And the two of them are apparently ready to kick some ass next week!

Color Rush 2

When I saw the second season, I was kind of excited. Mostly because they left that odd mystery with the disappearing mom plot completely open. And in the first episode, this is now front and center and obviously the primary driving force of season 2. But…wait a second… who’s that guy next to Yeon Woo? 

So where’s Yoo Han? Apparently he was kidnapped between Season 1 and 2, when the boys went to a carnival for a date? So now Yeon Woo is looking for both his mom and his boyfriend. This new boy Se Hyun sort of just barges into Yeon Woo’s life. Se Hyun has a younger sister that Yoo Han saw in a dream and some mysterious surgery where a mono can be transplanted with the probe’s eyes? And by the end of episode 2, Se Hyun’s sister apparently died. 

I looked at that scene and scratched my head…and went…what? Does anyone else understand what is going on?

I also see that the boy who played Yoo Han is nowhere on the cast list in MDL…oh oh… given the opening plot…what are the chances that Yoo Han will be found alive and well?

That is yet for this week. Here’s hoping that my allergies clears up and my sinus will treat me better.
