Just Bananas About: Week of 4/24/17

I didn’t watch last season’s Produce 101, partly because I didn’t have the time and partly because I wasn’t all that interested in watching a show in which young women are set up against each other to become “the number one idol”.  I know I’m being hypocritical as just because this season features young men doesn’t make the competition format any better.  However, I’m going to try and be a bit more open as many of the contestants are out trying to achieve their dreams.  That’s something I can totally root for.

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.

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 6/13/16

I don’t watch a lot of comedy shows.  I watch a lot of variety shows that are funny which are different from the comedy variety shows.  It’s just that these shows can sometimes be a hit or miss for me if the skit isn’t funny.  SNL Korea is the one comedy show that I keep up with and frankly, I don’t think it has been having a very good season.  However, I was looking forward to the appearance of the AOMG crew and was delighted to see this episode was the funniest episode I’ve seen all season.

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 3/14/16

Happy Pi Day!  Which is always an excuse to have the other pie, but I digress.  Lately, I’ve been watching a lot of weekend dramas.  A new one that started up relatively recently is Marriage Contract with Lee Seo Jin and Uee.  It’s not a very unique story but I really like the cast so I’ve decided to give it a go.
