THE SHORT VERDICT:
This is a pretty unique and refreshing show – if you’re able to tune in to Show’s vibe.
Show is quirky and heartfelt, with equal amounts of poignance and deadpan humor; supernatural stuff and regular human relationship stuff.
It’s refreshingly balanced, and tightly written in a way where you can feel that our writers knew every narrative piece by name, and had prepared each narrative piece lovingly, for a particular purpose.
Some of our cast isn’t as strong with the delivery, but I found the most important roles to be delivered with nice amounts of nuance and heart. The standout for me was Tseng Jing Hua as our protagonist Pu Yi Yong; such a memorable character!
Also, even though some of the visuals might hint at horror, this isn’t horror at all.
Altogether very worthwhile – again, if you’re able to tune in to Show’s vibe (more on that after the jump).
