Rants and Weekly Raves (RAWR) #410

Anne: Hello everyone, again I am one day late. I really have no excuse except that I needed to finish work last night. The 5 year old boy started space camp this week and he is very excited. Although he always tells me that he doesn't remember anything that he did during the day. Today, when I asked specifically if he had milk during lunch, he says that "No milk. We get to choose water or juice." I then asked what he picked, and he said juice and then added, "No one picks water." Sounds about right. And now on with the shows! A Dream of Splendor I wake up Sunday morning, and they dropped the rest of the episodes. So I spent the rest of Sunday afternoon binge watching everything to the end. This will be an overall review of the end with little details so I don't give away too much for those who is still waiting. As expected, happy endings all around. Although the "mis-understanding" between the leads did last a bit TOO long. And seriously, no one ev

Anne: I have since come to the realization this week that the 5 year old has the vocabulary of a teenage girl in every 80s movie ever made. Everything is "Oh My Gosh!", "What the hell?!", "That is ridiculous!", "Are you serious?!". It is quite funny. That's the only little bit of silly news that I have of the real world. And now back to drama land... Jinxed at First This was on my Viki list, and I started it this week just to see what it was all about. The story is a bit fantastical, about a family of female shamans who could see the future of anyone they touch. For years, they were the properties of royalty, until a chaotic time allowed them to escape captivity. However, being free didn't last long, and one of the line ended up being back under someone else's protection. Lee Seul Bi, a woman who has been kept in captivity and hidden away by a wealthy family who uses the women's powers to keep themselves wealthy and powerful.  How

Anne: Another week goes by and I have to start by apologizing that not only am I one day late, but I also have little to post. I came down with a stomach virus of some sort since Friday and basically spent the next three days and nights in bed, and missed all my prime show watching times.  But I did watch this...(It's not new exactly, but it did just come out on streaming) The Lost City , starting a bunch of people I never thought to put into a film together (but this may also be because I haven't been to a movie theater in like 7 years...something no one ever warned me would happen when you have a kid). It is a movie full of all the cliches and plots devices that we have seen and then some. But everything is put together in a new light with a slight twist and it was VERY enjoyable.  It is a simple story about a romance writer who has lost her spark (due to personal loss) and a model who wants to be more than a pretty face. They get pulled into an adventure because someone had

Anne: Hello everyone! I am one day late on the post. I fell asleep with only two drinks during dinner last night. Today is the first day of summer vacation for the 5 year old and he fell asleep at his normal bed time. My week has gone by as usual, with nothing interesting to report. So...onward with the discussions! From Now On, Showtime! As mentioned last week, this is one of my current favorite shows. Cha Cha Woong is a magician with the ability to see ghosts. He can also "share" his "energy" with the ghosts that allows the ghosts to handle physical objects. His fantastic "illusions" are the result of his 3 ghost workers who can interact with physical objects without being seen. Cha Cha Woong is the last remaining descendent of a long line of shamans. But due to his first hand witness of how his grandfather was treated when his grandfather was accused of interfering in a police capture of a serial killer that ended in the death of a detective, ChaWoong r
