Announcement: Upcoming Group Watches!

Thanks to everyone who voted in the poll; 552 votes were cast by 289 voters, and Stranger / Secret Forest came out on top, with 119 votes! Looks like I will finally watch Stranger, after putting it off for so long, heh.

At the same time, some of you have let me know that the poll results were showing inaccurately for you, in terms of the shows that you voted for. I do want to make sure that the group watch features shows that you guys actually want to watch, so I’ve taken the various opinions raised in the comments into consideration, in mapping out a solution that I hope will satisfy most voters.

I did also promise Ele, that I’d use my Editor’s Choice to balance things out, if our winning show doesn’t feature a romance, because it’s true that we’re due for some romance, in our group watch.

I really hope you guys like the solution that I’ve come up with.

Group Watch: Poll!

Thanks everyone, for your many suggestions, thoughts and contributions on the Group Watch brainstorm!

Lots of worthy titles were floated, and as promised, I sifted through all of them, and shortlisted the most popular titles for this poll. I also made the executive decision to add 2 wild cards into the mix, which you’ll see in a bit. 😉

Except for Hikaru no Go, Mother and Stranger, I’ve seen the other shortlisted dramas, and I do believe they are each solidly worthy of your drama hours.

Announcement: Breakup Probation, A Week episode notes!

This is becoming a bit of A Thing on the blog, but just in case you didn’t know, every so often, I like to cover a mini series as a bonus on Patreon, with the notes for the first 3 episodes made available to everyone, and here’s the announcement for the next bonus show I’ll be covering!

Previously, I covered Scripting Your Destiny and Mad For Each Other, so you can check out those bonus notes too, if you’d like.

For now, let me tell you a little bit about these latest bonus notes!

Announcement: Kill Me, Heal Me Group Watch!

Remember how we voted for our group watches 2 months ago, you guys?

Well, time has flown by, and while our Nirvana in Fire group watch is still on-going (so rich, and so meaty! Do join us, if you can!), we have now completed our group watch of the very breezy and very fun My Girlfriend is a Gumiho.

..Which means it’s time to announce the start of our Kill Me, Heal Me group watch, which was the second Editor’s Choice pick that I made. Here are all the details you might need!

Announcement: Mad For Each Other episode notes!

You guys might remember that a couple of months ago, I announced episode notes for Scripting Your Destiny for my patrons on Patreon, with the notes for the first 3 episodes made available to everyone.

Well, that was pretty fun, I thought, so when Mad For Each Other showed up, and enjoyed so much positive buzz among you guys, I thought I’d do it again! 😃

Whee~!

Announcement: New commenting system!

Hey everyone,

As you can tell from this post’s title, I’ve switched to a new commenting system for the blog, and I’m hopeful that this will make conversations on the blog a lot more fun to navigate!

Also, this feels timely, since a number of you let me know that the edit button for comments has stopped appearing for you. Not to worry, my friends! This new commenting system has a built-in editing feature, so you’ll be able to edit your comments for up to 15 minutes after posting them, just like the previous one.

The new commenting system is fairly easy to navigate instinctively, but I thought I’d highlight a couple of things, just to make it even easier for everyone.

Announcement: Upcoming Group Watches!

Thanks to everyone who voted in the poll; 413 votes were cast by 224 voters, and Nirvana in Fire came out on top, with 94 votes, woot!

As promised, I’ve also made my Editor’s Choice group watch picks – plural, because it’s going to take two shows, not just one, to match the 18 weeks that it will take to complete our Nirvana in Fire group watch!

As you can tell from the collage, I’ve chosen My Girlfriend is a Gumiho and Kill Me, Heal Me for our Editor’s Choice group watches. As a matter of interest, My Girlfriend is a Gumiho came in second in the poll, with 83 votes, while Kill Me, Heal Me came in fourth, with 72 votes.

Group Watch: What shall we watch next?

Our Dr. Romantic and Money Flower group watches are almost over – gosh, time flies, doesn’t it?!?

I hope you guys have been having fun with the group watches! I especially appreciate those of you who managed to join both group watches &/or have been active on the Open Threads. Sharing your reactions and your thoughts really makes the experience richer for everyone. Thank you for playing! ❤️

What I’d like to find out from you guys, via this post, is

(a) whether you guys are keen to keep going, with the group watch, and

(b) what you’d like to watch together, if you want to keep going?

Let me know in the comments!
