End of the Year TV Report (2016): Part 2

I’m finally getting around to Part 2 of this review.  However, it looks like I won’t be able to complete Part 3 until after I return from vacation.

The rating system:

Must Watch – Eyes glued… To the chocolate abs.
Watch – Well, heeeey there good lookin’
Just OK – Mildly entertaining at times but I’m here for the pretty boys.
If you’re bored – Sorry, you’re pretty but I’m just not that into you.
Pass – You might be pretty but not that pretty enough

Just Bananas About: Week of 8/15/16

It was one of the best episodes of Fantastic Duo ever that probably did not make you want to go outside.  Not that anyone would want to go outside.  I mean, seriously.  I made a big mistake in thinking I could handle going outdoors.

Just Bananas About: Week of 8/8/16

I’ve been looking forward to this Fantastic Duo.  This week we got the Diva special featuring Gummy, Bada and Yoon Mi Rae.  The first episode dealt mostly with Bada and Yoon Mi Rae but I quite enjoyed watching their various contestants competing for the coveted spot to go up against the reigning champs, Kim Gun Mo and Masan Sulli.

Just Bananas About: Week of 7/11/16

I literally finished the American drama, The Good Wife, a few days before the Korean remake began.  The dangers of looking forward to a new show is that you’re just not sure what you’re going to get but so far, I’m optimistic about the drama.  I will say that the drama makes me think a lot about the original American series as there are so many similarities.  There are some differences as well but the characters are generally the same and even seem to have the same backstories which I’m not totally against as long as the story is compelling.  And so far, it’s been pretty compelling.

Just Bananas About: Week of 7/4/16

Happy 4th!  As we are drawing closer to the finale of the Show Me the Money 5, the competition is getting fierce and exciting.  I always love this part of the show because for the most part, we’ve weeded out the some of the less-skilled rappers.  I think not only do we get to hear some of the competing rappers one by one but we also get to see whether their collaboration with their producers is a plus or a minus.

Just Bananas About: Week of 6/6/16

The challenging thing about doing a show like Sugar Man is finding the artists and bringing them onto the show.  There have been a number of groups that fans have been interested in seeing but for one reason or another, they haven’t made an appearance yet.  Last week, the show changed up its typical format.  Instead of remaking old songs, they brought not 2 but 4 groups on the show and had idol members fill in for the original members of the group that could not be there.

Just Bananas About: Week of 5/16/16

When I first heard the news that Ahn Jae Hyun would be on New Journey to the West 2 to fill in for Lee Seung Gi who is in the army, I wasn’t sure how I would feel about it.  However, the episode that aired this past week had me laughing so hard that I couldn’t breathe that it’s totally worth sharing.  (Also, later the new season of Show Me the Money.)
