Finished Joseon X-Files and I think everybody should just go ahead and watch it. It was a great mix of drama, humor, and creepiness. Plus, I don't think there has ever been another drama that I've loved just looking at so much. It's strange that for a show that dealt with such strange topics, I'll mostly remember how great I thought the camera work and lighting was. The director did a wonderful job of creating atmosphere through both. For a show about aliens and other phenomena it just felt real to me from the locations to costumes to characters. it was more like watching a movie than a drama.

Having said that, I have some thoughts on the finale...Spoooooilers )

Watched the first two episodes of My Princess and I can't believe how much I'm enjoying it. I had no intention of watching it at all, honestly. I just wasn't interested for whatever reason, even though on paper it's totally my thing, but I'm so glad I changed my mind! It's pure fun. I'd only seen Kim Tae-hee in IRIS before, and while I liked her there, I love her in this role. She's too precious. I'd never seen Song Seung-heon in anything before, though I'd heard plenty about his "acting." And while there is no denying those abs, his face just never did anything for me. And while I think Kim Tae-hee is totally the heart and soul of this operation, I love when they are silly together. Cuteness. Serious cuteness, people.

In other news: my cats chewed on my power adapter cord and killed it. Now I get to go buy a new one. Joy. I wish they'd just go ahead and get shocked so they'd learn their lesson. Of course, they're probably too stupid to remember what happened. Any ideas on how to make power cords less appealing?
So, instead of posting on a genuinely excellent drama (Joseon X-Files - I just watched episodes 7 and 8 last night and WOW. That was some excellent television right there. This show is just really fantastic from the stories to the camera work. It's more like a movie than a drama), I'm going to post some random screenshots from Jyuui Dolittle, which is.... not an excellent drama.

They do take their hamster health VERY SERIOUSLY though.



Spoilers for ep 3 )


SO MUCH GOOD TV, GUYS.

I'm not even going to go into My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, because I'm still ridiculous about it. I'm aware of it's faults (mainly any character or storyline that ISN'T Mi-Ho... and to a lesser degree Dae-Woong), but I don't care because I just go to a happy wonderful place whenever Gu Mi-Ho is being adorable.

In other drama news, I've devoured the first 6 eps of Natsu no Koi wa Nijiiro ni Kagayaku (hereafter known at Natsu Niji because COME ON). And it's been so long since I've enjoyed so many dramas at the same time. This one is just completely precious and I adore every character, which is more than can be said for MGiaG. And since it has a shorter jdrama running time, I just inhale it like candy. I just want to snuggle everyone. It's so pleasant and easy to watch.

Sakura might be my favorite character though, as wonderful as Shiori is and as goofy as Taiga is, I wish Sakura had her own show. I love how serious she is about work, she manages to be very professional but is just as quick to drop that facade and show her slightly acerbic personality. But she's never false or cutesy and I love it! I just wish she hadn't fallen for Taiga. I knew it would happen, but I really don't like it. I don't think the show needs that. Also, I KNEW I had seen her before. She was totally in Hana Kimi! I'm not insane!

GOLD is awesome. More subs need to come out. That is all.

What's with all the fantastic female characters this season? I LOVE IT.

Watched the first 15 minutes or so of Joseon X-Files and it looked pretty promising. Very slick. I'm excited to watch more. Anyone else following this series?

Leverage went out with kind of a putter for it's summer mid-season finale. I thought they phoned it in, which was disappointing.

No True Blood this week... *claws at walls* I don't see how they are going to resolve everything next week (there is only one episode left, right?). The show has been all over the place I almost feel like too much has gone on, but also nothing at all. I mean really, what are the plot points? The werewolves have kind of disappeared...

Basically, I'm still on kind of a high from this week's Mad Men, which I'm fairly certain is in my top 5, if not my favorite episode. Fantastic through and through. I found this recap/picspam here and it just made me want to rewatch the episode more.
