Thumping Spike - Episode 19 (A Squeecap)
kakashi: That is lovely of her. Mother-daughter bonding over bad KDrama! I like that. But hey, don't ever feel guilty again. That's an order.
JoAnne: Wow - I'm impressed both by her kindness and your ability to recall an episode in enough detail that it could be recapped without having been watched.
Oh, I had rewatched it... Last weekend when I should have recapped it
They won? See, I don't even remember that much.
I don't know about Korea, but in the US you can see local media doing commentary for at least football games and I think probably basketball, too - around here they stream from the local newspaper's website. The annual Thanksgiving Day game between our school and the next town over is one of the oldest rivalries in the country and made it on to the Today Show, one year.
And yet, we know they'll win anyway.
No one ever does a show about the team that loses. If they lose, the show goes to the next year to show that they eventually win. Just let people lose sometimes, drama!
Yes, is he dying?
No memory of this whatsoever.
Here he nearly doubles over on the way back onto the court. Han Sol asks if they should call an ambulance which just pisses Hyung Sung off. He grabs Han Sol by the shirt to ask if he’s really worried or if he just wants to see an ambulance again. Ambulance, ambulance! Hyung Sung barely finishes saying this before he passes out. Oh I do remember that, now that you mention it. They take him off the court. Coach, proving once again that he is the worst coach ever, starts to console them, saying they should be proud they’ve come this far as if their losing now is inevitable. Really coach? You’ve got all those other players standing right in front of you with uniforms on, and you’re ready to throw in the towel during the finals?? Pfft.
Why is this character in the show? No, really, why?
The volleyball sequences are actually nice to watch. Either our actors really played that well or they did a great job at making it seem like they do.
My Giant Puppy is an athlete, naturally.
Whatever. (But seriously, this writer: Hmmm, we need a reason to make a player substitution in the final game. Go with Hung Sung, then we can use Tapir again. I never did quite know what to do after I made him hang around all the time, so this is good. But what to make wrong with Hung Sung? Hmmm. Oh, whatever, just make him nervous. That way I don't have to look up any medical stuff.')
Writer: Shit, I have a whole episode still to fill. What can I do, what can I do? Gotta fill up some time...oh, hey! Let's list all the characters. I never got them all straight in my head so this is perfect, really.
You know, it's kinda cute and kinda sad at the same time that he has completely given up on Sera.
Don't be. One of the scenes that ended up on the cutting room floor is him fooling around with Secretary Kim.
You do that and then I'll crush his testicles. Too much?
Can she please move on already.
Maybe she'll fall out of the car when Woo Jin stretches his legs.
I want to marry this dude. He is perfect.
My Giant Puppy :) Now everyone wants to climb him like a tree.
Is this the last we see of her, I want to know?
I'm the last person you should ask, clearly. I barely remember that this is about a volleyball team. Well, a volleyball team coach.
Han Sol cracks me up.
Sunbae! I can't believe I didn't remember. I want him in lots of stuff.
I understand him. There are so many people, with so many stupid comments!
The unbearable fame of the - what is she? College? Semi-Pro? - volleyball player. How will they survive?
This is the episode in which everyone learns their place, Jerk. What about you? (my daughter, who watched this with me as well, said: "they are both not beautiful at all". Haha).
Both? Gi Joon and Jae Woong? I mean, Rimmie has looked better, but still.
Both. She likes Shi and Kasuo :)
This being Kdrama, on the other hand.... hey, by the way. What happened to the storyline with his sick sister?!
She died. Off camera. He took an afternoon off. Volleyball is the most important thing!
Yes, I didn't mind this episode at all. Convenience food, tastes okay, makes you happy, doesn't really fill you up, but you don't care because there's another meal waiting for you sometimes soon.
Yeah, it's not like they introduce new problems. Not that it hasn't been done in the past.
