Late Spring TV Report (2016)

THINK I DO REMEMBER HOW TO DO ONE OF THESE POSTS

It’s been so long since I last did one of these that I don’t know if I remember how to do one.  I don’t think I did one once last year but I’m going to try to better about getting these out.  It’s nice to be able to talk about shows that are currently running.  There are times when I start off loving a show only to be disappointed at the end.  Also, there are those American shows that I don’t have the time to do full reviews or shows that I’ve given up midway that it’s a nice way to recap some thoughts on those shows.

Just Bananas About: Week of 9/11/15

I have to admit that I’m not all up on the Web-TV format as I’m more of a traditionalist when it comes to TV.  I supposed that’s going to change big time with more and more shows choosing to distribute via the internet and, what we in the industry call, over-the-top service (OTT).  However, I couldn’t resist not watching New Journey to the West.  In some ways, the show doesn’t feel like a TV show at least when you consider how it’s edited. Rather, it’s a bunch of web shorts chronicling the group’s trip to China.  In other ways, there are elements that are classic Na PD such as beautiful aerials of the city they’re visiting and games.  Of course, you can’t leave out the most important part, the camaraderie between the cast members.
