I think he meant it in the pejorative sense.

The new PBJ

Wow I gotta remember I want to use this blog for TV instead of putting it elsewhere. Well, I’m trying my darndest… starting now. (Pretty sure I reiterate this sentiment to some degree every time I come back once a year.)

So I’ve been catching up on The Office (just finished the last season…) and the Andy and Erin relationship is… hm. They are clearly trying to push this as the new Jim and Pam relationship, but they are certainly no Jim and Pam. I couldn’t care less if they got together or not. I think Erin can be cute and quirky, and Andy’s certainly… a character (I mean that with the best of intentions). Yet trying to put them together is so uninteresting I nearly zone out whenever their relationship is onscreen. The forced breakup with Gabe was just that. (Then again in the time between the episodes where they seemed happy and then the breakup, I stopped watching for six months.) It probably doesn’t help that Gabe is kind of likeable (he was Lady Gaga, lol) and Pam’s previous beau, Roy, was painted badly, especially compared to Jim. If anything, I dislike Erin more than Gabe; there’s naïveté and then there’s, “Did she shave a slice of brain away from her cerebrum or something?” I find those types of “innocent” characters off-putting.

Maybe when I start the new season things will feel different.*

Beyond the Realm of Conscience: First Impressions

(L-R: Moses Chan, Susanna Kwan, Tavia Yeung, Charmaine Sheh, Michelle Yim, Kevin Cheng)

Okay. I totally realize I have way too many projects going on here. I’m in the middle of one Meteor Garden episode (which is really the first of the HYD shows I’m doing), one Cinderella’s Sister episode, and now this… To be fair though (to… who?), I’m really only going to summarize this instead of my recaps with an ungodly amount of screen caps (now with gifs!). That, and endlessly compare it to Dae Jang Geum.

Wednesday Night Finales

I made a Mother’s Day resolution to post more here. After all, it shouldn’t be that hard, I watch tons of television. (I’m not exactly sure why I stagnated.) BTW, this site focuses on television, did my About page not mention that at all, commentator who questioned the purpose on an entry I don’t remember right now? (I edited the page now for clarification.) Anyway, it used to be episode-by-episode, as in, each entry only focused on one episode of a particular show (except for the TV on DVD parts), but I’m going to include more general entries too, that is, posting about more than one show in an entry. So, let’s go! (Spoilers for last night!)
