Cinderella And Her Four Knights - Episode 8 (A SqueeCap)

Image
Shuk: Our gang is camping out together as another way of bonding everyone together. For us, it's just more of the same stuff, just in a prettier setting, with sheep and wind turbines.
Kmuse: Who doesn’t love a scenic wind turbine? I know it always adds that extra romantic va va voom for me.
SakiVI: This episode was just full of cliches that I hated to no end.

Episode 8

Ducky wakes up, still in his pajamas, inside the corporate airplane.  Apparently, he's a really bad flier, because he starts panicking and shouting. Everyone else various reactions from boredom to amusement as he is finally put back in his chair to have a mini-meltdown.
Trotwood: To be fair, I think I'd be a bit freaked out if I went to sleep in my own bed and woke up on an airplane. The only people for which this would be normal would be babies who are constantly falling asleep in one place (car seat, crib, etc.) only to wake up in another (mall, Target, park, etc.).
JoAnne:  Yeah, I'm with Trot on this. On…

ToGetHer 愛就宅一起 - Episode 7 (A Contest Squeecap)

Trotwood: So I am taking my turn as promised to do a recap of an ep of the Mars-Momo show, but I can see why—besides the call of real life work—people were not that eager to recap this one. There is entirely too much Jia Sen in this episode. I say this knowing that he bothers others a LOT more than he bothers me and then there was the painful past and present with mom here as well. Not much cute going on in this ep but there is much marching forward for the couple and their understanding of each other. So there is character progression even if there seems to be not much plot progression.
Shuk: I didn't much like his character or his place in the storyline, but I'm glad we can get a glimpse into why his life is so messed up.
JoAnne: Oh, is this THAT episode? Okay. *takes deep breath* I'm going in.
kakashi: Wait, what color do I get? I'm seriously confused. 
SakiVi: the colour you just used, kakashi!
I thought the rule was you have to take my usual color because I have to …

Round Two of the destruction of our eyes! And just because of these eyesores (well, and the kissing), I am now the proud owner of a HD version of the show.
Trotwood: (breaking out into wild applause) The things you do for humanity, Shuk!

Old Nine Gates 老九门 - Episode 37 (Recap)

SakiVI: We get noodled. Read on.
kakashi: The episode is called "Er Ye's Troubles", but it should really be called "Er Ye's Noodles". Or maybe "Er Ye's Noodles meet Er Ye's Balls?" Here he is, sobbing into his noodles:

kakashi: I want to stop being so busy, it's no fun! Also, I see that I'm running out of stuff to watch.
Trotwood: I feel that way as well. Very busy, and I'm not really excited about any upcoming kdramas. I'm still loving Snail, and Japanese dramas. I've been introducing one each week. I'm waiting for the Wallace Chung/Aaron Wang show and the Weir/Min lakorn.
Shuk: I have all sorts of small projects to complete, but combined they are well nigh overwhelming. Plus my Thai fanfiction starring one of my favorite lakorn co-conspirators.. [secretly points upward] But I have lots, new and old, to watch! Also, if I only had the time.
JoAnne: Busy, getting busier, and no shortage of things to watch. I curse whoever pointed out Marcus Chang to me (secretly points upwards.) Fantastic holiday, though. Man, I love Thanksgiving. 

Ice Fantasy 幻城 - Episode 29 (Recap)

Image
kakashi: Oh dear. Oh dear oh dear oh dear, that's a LOT of excitement for my poor nerves!! This (below) doesn't look good. Not good at all. Rest assured though: Shi survives. Even though he is forever altered.
SakiVI: Even all red like that, Shi is pretty.  #LifeGoals
JoAnne: Nah, he looks like the Wicked Witch of the East, but red.

Ice Fantasy 幻城 - Episode 28 (Recap)

Image
kakashi: Look! This is Shi, as a baby! Wasn't he extremely cute??! And they want us to believe this cute baby was evil? I won't!
SakiVI: Me neither. They were all just prejudiced against Lian Ji and paid off to say Shi was evil by the Ice Queen. 
JoAnne: I've never seen a baby in full drag before. Well, pre-wig.

80% of Something Horrifying: Jae-in's Jackets (Part One)

Image
Shuk:  I started Something About 1%  by dramarathoning the first ten episodes or so. After sighing and squealing and my emotions running the spectrum, I wiped away tears from my eyes. They weren't tears of sadness, nor of joy. They were just irritated from the sheer ugliness of more than half the outfits that poor Ha Seok-jin had to endure. Do they ever get a say in what they wear?

Ice Fantasy 幻城 - Episode 27 (Recap)

kakashi: This is a sad episode for our Eagle Pian Feng, so let me honor him with the top picture. There, there, it will be alright. Maybe.
SakiVI: I hope so. He's really handsome, and one of my favorite characters outside of Shi, Yan Da and Lianji.
JoAnne: I am quite fond of the Eagle Fairy also, even if I laugh every time I say those two words together.

Old Nine Gates 老九门 - Episode 36 (Recap)

Image
SakiVI: In this episode, we enter an alternate reality. Yay, I guess. But at least we're in the tomb for a while, and it looks really cool! Plus, we get more Lost Tomb-like activity than we've had in ages, possibly ever, in this show. The Prince continues to troll Chief Lu, Chen Pi is himself, and we also learn who Ba Ye admires the most. 
kakashi: Yes, so, if you thought this was a bit crazy, you should probably reset your crazometer, because this show is only getting started.

JoAnne: Lots and lots of new stuff this week! kakashi: I'm so glad I'm not watching it. I'm so damn busy. The time before Christmas could be so nice but it never is.

The Man (That Should Be) Living at My House - Episode 8 (KimJiCap)

Image
kakashi: We say goodbye to my man and I won't lie, I'm not sad about it. Because I don't like this show and hence, I don't like him in it and anyway, I don't care, because he will soon be on my screen as smart and friendly oppa. If you guys have seen the variety show Let's Eat With Friends, you will agree with me that he impersonates that oppa. He won't even have to act.
JoAnne: It's okay, I'll just take my Nan Gil love to the RAWR...

kakashi: Oh look! He's still around.
JoAnne: He needs to be kicked in those teeth.
:(((((

Old Nine Gates 老九门 - Episode 35 (Recap)

Image
SakiVI: I'm back! I was away on holidays, then had a sudden family visit, and then the election, and now, I'm back for your recapping pleasure! and I'd like to say, I really need this show right now. Fo Ye and Gang just cheer me up a lot. I'm even mildly happy about seeing the Nose again.
kakashi: This episode is a lot of fun because of the poncey and lavish Qing Prince, who loves nothing more than fooling Lu and his band of Idiots.

Shuk: Hi everyone! Back from my cruise and none the worse for wear except for slightly heavier and just a tiny tiny bit less zombie white. I dumped Shopping King Louis somewhere near Nassau and ended up watching an older lakorn and working on my current fanfic. But now I'm back and ready to watch some more dramas!!
Trotwood: Welcome Back, Shuk. I can't wait to read your fanfic (and not just because you've promise me that I will be riding on Weir's bike). So many dramas ending this week. I'm not excited about any of the new dramas though. Persuade me, guys.
kakashi: No MerMinho?
JoAnne: Oh you know I'll be watching that one, at least. Jeon Ji Hyun for the win!
Trotwood: I love her, but I have a problem with her co-stars. (Waiting for the hate from LMH fans)
Until recently, I honestly thought he'd be the mermen. I'm still a bit confused about it. Luckily, I have a blog to deal with my confusions.

Ice Fantasy 幻城 - Episode 26 (Recap)

Image
kakashi: One episode closer to finding out who will be the Ice King, but it's babysteps, really. I'm yearning for some kick-ass fighting! Bring it!
SakiVI: this competition thing is rather annoying. Either have a general election or just designate a successor.  
Ice King is stalling. Maybe he gets paid extra for more episodes?
He just really likes wearing that makeup.

The Man (That Should Be) Living at My House - Episode 6 (KimJiCap)

Image
kakashi: Ratings are dropping for this show and I know why: Not enough Kim Ji-hoon! The less he is on screen, the less people watch.
JoAnne: Despite that cute Kim Ji Hoon smile, I believe it had something to do with (shudders) Romantic Doctor. I just.. that name. Ugh.

kakashi: And once again I fear that .... but no, here he is! Opppaaaaaaa! You're the star in my special version of this show!
JoAnne: I keep wondering what is going on in his head... most of the time, I fear the answer is nothing.

Old Nine Gates 老九门 - Episode 34 (Recap)

kakashi: Saki is back, Fo Ye is back, everyone is back. Yay. Also, our villains are sloooowly going down. Better slow than not at all.
SakiVI: Yay! I missed Fo Ye, and Visual Zhang and XinYue! Ba Ye and Er Ye too, though I'll be frank, not as much.  

Ice Fantasy 幻城 - Episode 25 (Recap)

kakashi: Can this show ever top fishtail-sex? Probably not.
SakiVI: That was pretty creative, though. Unfortunately, it got me looking up the love life of sharks, and I can't unsee that now. 
JoAnne: I had fish for dinner twice this week, and both times that scene ran through my mind. Thanks.
