Love & Destiny 三生三世宸汐缘 - Episode 40 (Recap)

Image
kakashi: GoW acquires a disciple and remembers some love advice. Apparently, Yun Feng knows what he's doing, only not when it comes to his upcoming marriage.
JoAnne: What is this? Episode 4389 of Men Behaving Like Babies?
I don't need TV for that...

Bai Qian put her copper mirror away and went back to gazing down the bridge that connected the two parts of this small city as she waited for Moyuan to return from the tea shop he’d gone into a brief while ago. She’d never thought the mirror would work but it surprisingly had. Now she’d at last let Yehua know she was safe and was feeling less guilty about spending precious time here instead of at Xunzhua, training like everyone else.

Trotwood: I hope other people are watching stuff because I'm traveling, and my travel companions have been on a mission to get our money's worth out of the London Pass. We did eight of the items. I've been falling asleep each evening before I can get through any shows.
kakashi: Not watching stuff. I hope you're having a load of fun!!!! I'm massively preoccupied with very unpleasant things in real life.  
Panda: Hi everyone, I had a death in the family so feeling quite blue. Hope you are all taking care of yourselves.
JoAnne: Much love to you, my sad Panda

Love & Destiny 三生三世宸汐缘 - Episode 39 (Recap)

kakashi: A'Mo has a real hero moment in this episode. But some men just cannot take a no for a no, pffft.
JoAnne: I think she might be my favorite female lead in the Chinese dramas I've seen thus far.

Rants and Weekly Raves #275 (RAWR)

Trotwood: I'm creeped out about being first in the first RAWR of the decade since the last time I was first, I erased everyone's work! Anyway, Happy New Year. What new things are people watching? I didn't watch anything new because I was busy reviewing notes for the end of decade wrap up and getting ready for upcoming trip. I'll be traveling over the next week, so my drama watching for the next two weeks is going to depend on how sleepy I am and how good my wifi is.
kakashi: My drama year is starting with zero seconds of anything watched. Hm.
Panda: I have not watched any kdrama since the last decade. I have however binged on 6 seasons of the Holiday Baking Show, 2 seasons of Spring Baking Show, the most recent season of the Great American Baking Show, and old Bollywood movies on Netflix namely- Amar Akbar and Anthony, Don, Chalte Chalte, and the Great Gambler. Phew. I already know I am going to jump back into dramas with a chinese drama though since there are a lot tha…

A sunny spring morning, a pot of tea flavored with lemongrass, and the little sprite’s occasional chirping outside the window.

Sitting at the bamboo table in their safehouse’s kitchen, Bai Qian believed Moyuan was as ready to speak to her as she was to spill out her thousands of questions.

End of a Decade of Drama Watching

END OF DECADE POST!!!Trotwood: As usual, at the end of every semester, I make a list of things I need to do or about which I need to think or things I need to not forget. On that list was this blog's end of year post. I hadn't heard anything about it, so I innocently messaged our fearless leader, worrying that I had forgotten a message about it. But you know how that goes. If you ask a question, you end up being the person in charge.😊
Thus, if you were looking for our usual best/worst dramas of 2019 and are disappointed, don't blame anyone but me. I'm the one that wanted to look back long-term. It is the end of a decade after all. I don't know about you, but my life both personally and professionally is completely different than what it was ten years ago. Much of it has to do with the influences that dramas in general and this blog in particular have had on me. I want to thank all the writers here for the warm welcome and our readers for indulging my less than pop…

kakashi: These men are useless! I'm angry.
JoAnne: Is this news? (About the men, not about you.  The bit about you being angry is news, you're normally quite calm.)

Love & Destiny 三生三世宸汐缘 - Episode 37 (Recap)

kakashi: Wow. This GoW can be jealous, petty and rather shameless. Having to live without her is one thing but having to find out she's been sharing a house with another man... too much.
JoAnne: I feel like mortal arcs should be considered like hall passes, don't you? What happens on Earth stays on Earth and all that.
