Just Bananas About: Week of 1/16/17

I have to admit that I’ve haven’t been loving this season’s episodes of Sherlock.  I’m not sure if it’s because we’ve waited so long for a new season and I’ve been building up my anticipation for it.  However, the first two dull episodes of this season have been building up towards this finale’s explosive end.

Just Bananas About: Week of 1/9/16

The boys are back causing mischief and chaos in the West and they’ve got two more members to join in the fun.  New Journey to the West made its debut last week on Navercast with a preview into the new season and more specifically the new members that will be joining them, WINNER’s Song Mino and Super Junior’s Kyuhyun.  Clearly, the two new members worried about joining the show because this type of variety show was new for them.  They might be good at games but they have no idea how to be underhanded and sneaky.

Happy New Year!  It’s been a mad dash for me to complete my reviews before I can put out my End of the Year TV Reports and I still got a few more to go.  If only I was better at not procrastinating… well, I suppose that’s what new year resolutions are for, right?  And still, that didn’t stop me from adding another program to watch on top of what I’m already watching.  Last year, I attempted to watch a web drama, Splash Splash LOVE, and loved it.  Each of the episodes are about 10 minutes or so in length, they don’t require much commitment and they’re often silly and entertaining.  So during the break, I was interested in doing that again and came across Seven First Kisses.

It’s already the end of the year and we’re down to the final Bananas post for this year.  Recently, there have been a lot of changes to the Sunday variety show line-up and one of the newest programs is Secretly, Greatly, which is basically a candid camera program featuring celebrities.  The show is hosted by Yoon Jong Shin, Lee Su Geun, Lee Gook Joo, Kim Hee Chul and John Park.

Just Bananas About: Week of 12/5/16

Goblin started its run on tvN this weekend and although it’s quite early, I’m impressed and optimistic about it.  Unlike Kim Eun Sook’s previous dramas, this one is a fantasy drama.  Sure, Secret Garden had fantasy elements but both of the main characters were human.  Unlike this drama, where there are gods mixing with humans who have superpowers.  The first two episodes clock in at an hour and a half each and I’m not sure if the subsequent episodes will follow suit but there was a lot of backstory that’s covered in the first two episodes.

About a year ago, it was announced that Gilmore Girls would be making a revival on Netflix.  This is finally what prompted to sign up for Netflix again.  Waiting patiently through all the exciting casting news about who would return, the release of promo stills and the trailer, it was finally premiere day.  I nearly spent all of Friday alternating between watching on a tablet on my bed and watching on the TV on my couch before I got through all the episodes.  While this post is not meant to be a complete recap of the episodes, I will be going through some major plot points so be forewarned that there are spoilers ahead.

Just Bananas About: Week of 11/21/16

I was a little worried when I saw the new cast of the Three Meals a Day with Lee Seo Jin.  I guess I was so used to seeing the chemistry between Lee Seo Jin, Ock Taecyeon and Kim Kwang Kyu but I’ve been enjoying watching Eric, Yoon Kyun Sang and the cats, Mong and Kung.
