Episode 26 - Catching Up with Citizens, Private Life, Secret Secretary and more…

May 15, 2019

Episode 26 - we go through a lot of shows in this one since we ran into an unexpected delay.  We slug through My Fellow Citizens, gush over Her Private Life and peek at The Secret Life of My Secretary.  What is Jane doing (or not doing) with Romance is a Bonus Book?  Mother of Mine recap and we zip through While You Were Sleeping and Pinocchio (Lee Jong Suk much?).  Big thanks to listeners with recommendations - somehow, Jane will discover the secret of time distortion to watch them all! *little finger hearts*

Episode 25 - My Fellow Citizens and Her Private Life

May 1, 2019

Episode 25 - we continue with My Fellow Citizens and share a common complaint about the series and we're picking up Her Private Life, which was unexpected.  Mel looks at watching My ID is Gangnam Beauty so that we can discuss in a future episode.  Jane wrapped up Sky Castle and clearly no longer cares that Mel won't watch Running Man as she talks about it anyway!  In personal news, Jane fell while walking and is looking for pity on the show (it's okay, she's fine now).  Aiming for our next 25!

Episode 22 - this really is our last look at The Last Empress as our guest, John, comes back for a final analysis!  We ask the big questions: can a grandmother killer be redeemed?  can there be an overweight hero? why extend the show?  can people burn in a car and come out with just a scratch on the face?

Episode 20 - Melissa is away on vacation and Jane has hijacked the podcast to talk all about Running Man.  So, the synopsis is Running Man, Running Man and more Running Man.  We look at the latest episode 440 and why Jane thinks that this is a great all-around episode to use to recommend to first-time watchers.  It's an introductory episode - Jane's fishing for topics for future hijackings - dedicate an episode to favorite cast members?  Special guests?  Storylines?  LOVELINES?  Come listen and have your say!

Episode 17 - we carry on with The Last Empress and it's all sorts of crazy!  We look at what we're doing here in the podcasting world and look ahead to the next shows to follow as The Last Empress starts to wind down.  If you missed our first guest from Episode 15, he makes a short appearance here (albeit, in the form of a clip).  Brief synopsis of Urban Cops is also provided as Jane tries to lure Melissa into watching a reality show.  Our next episode will be more in-depth on The Last Empress... we promise!
