Flash Review: The Silent Sea

I’d heard such mixed reactions to this one, that I became curious enough about what my own reaction would be, to check it out for myself.

Now that I’ve emerged on the other side, I can safely say that I do think your mileage may vary, with this one.

Some folks will like it a lot, while others will find it rather ‘meh.’

Personally, I find myself somewhere in the middle – but tending towards the side of ‘meh,’ unfortunately.

Still, I hope that this quick review will help you figure out whether you’re likely to love this one, or whether you’d be better off spending those drama hours elsewhere.

Review: Rainless Love in a Godless Land [Taiwan]

THE SHORT VERDICT:

I do think that Rainless is a pretty special snowflake of a show, in that I don’t think I’ve come across a similar drama, among the hundreds of dramas I’ve checked out, in the last 15 years.

Show manages to weave its story, while providing a good amount of educational insight into Taiwanese indigenous culture, and it also manages to make statements about environmental issues without being preachy. That’s pretty impressive.

I think it’s helpful to mention that you either really love this one, or you don’t. And you’ll figure out which camp you fall into, reasonably quickly.

Even though I appreciated Show’s strengths, I have to confess that this one never stole my heart. Still, I would say that this turned out to be a worthwhile watch.
