Fight For My Way Series Review

K-Drama Reaction: Fight My Way | Episode 1 – AHJUMMAMSHIES

We are introduced to Ko Dong-man, Choi Ae-ra, Kim Joo-man, and Baek Seol-hee. Dongman has been best friends with Seol-hee and Aera since they were children, and he was friends with Kim Jooman while he was in high school. He used to be a taekwondo star when he was in high school, but after a tragic accident during one of his games, he vowed never to fight again. Now, he lives in an apartment complex with his high school friends, and he works as an exterminator. He wishes he could do better for himself, but since he never went to college, he doesn’t know what he could possibly do without returning to fighting.

Aera has wanted to be a TV announcer/reporter ever since she was a young child. Not going to school has caused her to not qualify for many of the positions she interviews for, but she is determined to be successful someday. For now, she is experiencing disappointment after disappointment as she maintains her job as a customer service representative/welcome person at a department store.

The two must overcome their obstacles in order to follow their dreams.

I absolutely adored this show when I watched in in either November or December, but I just never got the chance to write a proper review.

This K-drama is very realistic, which is why some people didn’t like it, but it is why I absolutely adored it. In real life, there are no perfect endings, there are no perfect relationships, and no one lands the job of their dreams without hard work. It is difficult for an adult without a college degree to land a job while competing with college students that have internships and recommendations, and this show really emphasizes this point.

I also like the point that this show really emphasizes the joy in the small victories. Aera, Dongman, Jooman, and Seol-hee have fun together just by sneaking up to the roof for some drinks, or having breakfast together in the mornings before they head off to work. It shows that in real life, you do not necessarily need money to be happy.

I also really enjoyed Seol-hee and Jooman’s storyline of the office place romance. I won’t spoil too much about it, but it definitely wasn’t a storyline that I was bored by.

I would recommend this story to anyone looking for a sweet and realistic romance show.

Riverdale Season 2 Episode 4 Review

Riverdale Season 2 Episode 4 Recap: THINGS JUST GOT SO REAL

Archie’s Red Circle is failing, as the Principal promises to disband the football team until they make an official apology and eliminate the group. Many of the players say that they are going to quit the group, but Archie is determined to get revenge for Mrs. Grundy and his father. He goes into the SouthSide with his gun, spray painting red circles on the buildings. He scares off some Serpents with his gun but he scares himself in the process. Veronica has to go to the school to retrieve it for him, and she tells him that she threw it away. Then, when the football players come to Archie to apologize, they get into a fight in the Serpents, which ends with the Serpents being scared off by the gun that Veronica took from Archie, and one of Archie’s friends being stabbed in the leg by a Serpent.

Betty receives a letter from the Black Hood saying that he was inspired by her Jubilee Ball speech and that included a cipher that only she could solve, in order to find out where his next attack would be. At first she doesn’t tell anyone about the rest of the letter, but then she trusts Jughead in order to solve the cipher, and in the end has to tell the other town officials after the Town Hall meeting turns out to be the Black Hood’s next place of attack.

My favorite part of this episode was definitely seeing Veronica be a bit responsible. Archie is going completely off the rails, yet no one is noticing because they are all going a little crazy due to these attacks. I hope that someone notices how bad he is getting before he kills someone.

Overall Rating: 5/5

Riverdale Season 2 Episode 3 Review

 

Meet The Parents - Riverdale Season 2 Episode 3

Kevin hears the gunshot in the woods from Midge & Moose’s car and goes to see what happens. Moose covered Midge, so only he got shot, but he is rushed to the hospital and survives the attack. After this, Archie decides that the football team, filled with the strongest boys in the town, ought to form their own team to try and help fight the Black Hood. So he forms the Red Circle, and films an intimidating (ish) video where all of the members of the football team stand bare chested with red hoods on their heads and vow to protect Riverdale.

Alright, so the Red Circle video was hilarious, I found a clip of it, just skip to the end, I was just laughing. Like in the show it was supposed to be intimidating but it was simply funny to me.

Anyways moving on, Betty and Kevin are having a spat of their own, as Kevin keeps going into the woods to find men to…well to find men to hook up with, there’s no better way to put it. Betty believes that this is dangerous, as the woods are where people think the Black Hood is hiding, plus the men might be dangerous. However, Kevin is feeling lonely as one of the few gay men in his hometown, so he does it until Betty tells his father and Kevin almost has a dangerous encounter.

Jughead is still at the Southside High, where he has befriended Toni, a female Serpent, and has restarted the school newspaper. He doesn’t want to be associated with the Serpents, but he soon realizes how dangerous it is for him to be alone.

My favorite part of this episode was definitely Kevin’s arguments with Betty. Even though Betty was butting in and eventually really hurt him, she did end up possibly saving his life, by giving him a sense of caution when he was going into a car.

Overall Rating: 5/5

Riverdale Season 2 Episode 2 Review

‘Riverdale’ Recap: Season 2, Episode 2 — ‘Nighthawks’ | TVLine

Because Archie’s father was almost murdered there, Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe is on the verge of shutting down. It has been a staple of Riverdale for years, and so Betty and Veronica are determined to save it. In order to do this, they must convince Cheryl to lend them the Cheerleading Squad, and convince Josie and the Pussycats to perform.

Archie feels guilty for the death of Ms. Grundy, and he want to do something about this killer who is going around trying to eliminate citizens of Riverdale. He is so determined to be prepared for the next time the Black Hood strikes, that he buys a gun from one of the shadier students at his school, and tries to train himself in shooting it.

Veronica is still debating whether or not to trust her parents again, letting the past be the past, but by the end of the episode she seems to be on the side of trusting them more than questioning their every move.

Lastly, the episode ends on a cliffhanger of the Black Hood shooting Moose and Midge as they do drugs in their car in the woods.

This season is coming together quite nicely, and I cannot wait to see how far Archie will go before he completely snaps.

Supergirl Season 3 Episode 4 Review

Supergirl Season 3 Episode 4 – The Faithful [S03E04] - Primebaze

Supergirl has to try to take down herself this episode.

A cult has sprung up in her name, with the people whom she has saved in the past worshiping her. At first, Kara was simply upset that someone was worshiping her instead of her true God, Rao. But soon she realizes that this cult is dangerous, as people are putting themselves into danger in order to become closer to her, because she will come to save them. When the leader of this cult decides to plant a bomb under a stadium, in order for Supergirl to come save them, she is unsure of whether or not she will be able to. It becomes even more dangerous for her when she cannot even destroy the alien bomb because it contains Kryptonite.

Ruby and her mother Samantha are having issues, as Samantha’s new job is taking away most of her time, and Ruby wants her mother to hear her practice for her talent show. Sam thinks that her having to put her daughter on the sideline makes her a poor mother, but Lena quickly makes her realize that she is doing what is best for her and her daughter.

Alex is still struggling with the fact that Maggie does not want children while she desperately wants one, and the talent show with Ruby seems to break her. She is not sure whether or not she can marry someone who is adamant against having children.

This episode was amazing as usual. I often hate cults in TV, but this episode seemed to tackle them in a more respectful way. Supergirl was happy that she could change the lives of these people by saving them, but she was more angry that her God Rao was being tarnished by the people worshiping her instead. Alex’s emotional battle over having kids is showing what can really happen in a relationship when people have different thoughts about an issue, and so I appreciate Supergirl for showing this side of love. This episode was simply everything that I could have hoped for it to be.

Overall Rating: 6/5

Supergirl Season 3 Episode 3 Review

J’onn must return to Mars, and he thinks that M’Gann is in danger. However, the truth is that his father, thought dead for hundreds of years, has been found as the last prisoner of the White Martians. He is the only one who knows where the White Martians are moving a scepter that could potentially wipe out the resistance without even touching them. J’onn must figure out how to convince his father to tell them where they are moving it, but his father is convinced that his son is dead.

Maggie and Alex are having their wedding bridal shower, Maggie decides to invite her father, whom she hasn’t spoken to since he kicked her out of the house when she was 14 years old. He arrives and seems to be making an effort to change and accept his daughter. However, in the end, he cannot accept that she is choosing to be an outcast by marrying a woman, when he worked so hard to make her not be an outcast because of their race.

My favorite parts in this episode were J’onn finally being able to reminisce about his family with his father and Maggie getting closure with her father and realizing that he is just not going to be able to accept her. Both of these things were important in the development of the characters, as J’onn is finally getting closure about Mars, and Maggie about her life in general. I am also glad that I am getting to see the side characters get a lot of screen time this season!

Supergirl Season 3 Episode 2 Review

Supergirl Vs Psi - Supergirl Season 3 Episode 2

Supergirl must battle Psi, a villian who can make you see your worst fears. This is something even Supergirl struggles to fight, especially as she is still working on getting over the fear of what happened to Mon-El after she sent him off.

Lena and James are butting heads, as Lena wants to be involved in the running of CatCo, and James wants to be completely in charge as he has been since Cat left.

Ruby and her mother Samantha struggle as her mother has just received a new job and Ruby gets into a fight with a girl at school about whether or not her mom  has superpowers. When Ruby puts herself into danger, it is up to Samantha to save her again.

I enjoyed this episode a lot more than the season premiere. This episode truly showed how fear and anxiety can affect anyone, including superheroes. My favorite part of this show was when Samantha saved her daughter, even though we still do not know what causes her superpowers. Ruby made me a bit angry in this episode, as she purposefully put herself into trouble in order to be “saved” by her mother. This would be fine if she was supposed to be like 5-9 year old. However, the actress is 13, and looks to be at least 12 if not older. SO this just seems like a middle schooler  having a very immature temper tantrum. This did not taint the episode for me, as I still enjoyed the storyline very much, but it was worth mentioning.

Overall Rating: 4.5/5

Riverdale Season 2 Episode 1 Review (Spoilers!)

 

Watch Riverdale Online Free. Riverdale Episodes at ...

The season starts with Archie rushing his father, who has been shot at a local diner, to the hospital. Once his father is in surgery, Archie calls his friends to come to the hospital for moral support, and the gang is reunited in fearful waiting for Archie’s father to come out of surgery. Archie doesn’t know why the robber shot his father, and he is going through some emotional turmoil because he thinks he failed to protect his dad. Veronica is struggling as her father is coming home soon, but she still wants to be there for the boy she loves, Archie. Jughead and Betty do some sleuthing of their own to find out who tried to hurt Archie’s dad, and they discover that no money was taken from the diner, so the shooter must have been there specifically to hurt Archie’s dad. Jughead asks the Serpents to do some sleuthing as well, but he gets more than he bargained for. Cheryl is with her mother in the hospital who is suffering from severe burns after Cheryl started the fire, and she is determined to control her mother’s life now that she knows who really killed her brother.

My favorite part of this episode was when Veronica and Archie were back at his house. Veronica wanted to be helpful and took Archie’s dad’s clothes out of the bag that he hospital had given him, but Archie becomes enraged saying that she shouldn’t have touched anything and that his dad’s wallet was missing. He tries to kick her out, but Veronica tells him that she won’t leave because he needs someone to help him through his fears instead of leaving him.

Personally, I have always seen Bughead as the couple with the most emotional attachment to each other, so to see Veronica truly comforting and helping Archie was a first. I enjoy seeing this more responsible and mature side of this couple, and I hope to see more of it as the series progresses.

SuperGirl Season 3 Episode 1 Review (Spoilers!)

1000+ ideas about Supergirl on Pinterest | Melissa Benoist ...

This episode killed me.

Let me give you some backstory. When I was watching this episode, I had been having a rough-ish day. I wanted to be able to let go and see happy Kara with her friends just having fun. But then I remembered what had happened in the last season. Mon-El had been shipped away to Daxam due to his lead allergy, and this crushed Kara. So I went to the episode unsure as to what would happen. Sure enough, we had depressed Kara.

Kara is struggling to be both Supergirl and Kara Danvers ever since Mon-El has been gone. Her friends and sister have noticed, but nothing they say will change her mind. In fact, it seems as if the more they talk to her, the more she seems to bury herself in her work and ignore them. This is a very intense time for them, as they are preparing for Alex and Maggie’s wedding along with fighting a rich man who wants to take the poor waterfront of the city and turn it into a rich living area. On top of this, they came upon a ship that had a machine/gun/bomb thing that no one could sense until it was shooting at them. With Kara checking out, the team is worried about how they will get her back and solve this mystery.

Alright can I say that I almost died of laughter? Kara was about to die because apparently she can’t breathe underwater, and she had a Bella of New Moon moment where hallucination Mon El shouted at her to wake up. If this becomes a staple I won’t be able to stop laughing, I thought I was done with the crazy hallucinations once I finished that book.

To be honest, this entire episode is almost exactly like New Moon. Well to the people that want her to be with her friend of many years, James, even though they didn’t work out. So that’s how I am going to explain it! Edward/Mon-El, gone. Bella/Kara is sad and depressed and pushing all of her friends away while still dreaming about Edward/Mon-El. James/Jacob is trying to get his best friend back to normal. Charlie/Alex is really worried about Bella/Kara’s well being and doesn’t know what to do. And I am just here for the ride. Not a super disappointing first episode, especially with the addition of a possible second alien lady, but I hope that after this the show will go past the New Moon depression, even without Edward/Mon-El returning immediately.

Overall Rating: 4/5

The Gifted Episode 1 Review

The Gifted TV Show | Cast, Plot, Wiki, Reviews | 2017 Fox TV Shows

This was one of the best shows I have seen since Riverdale and Supergirl went on summer break!

The Gifted is a new story set in the X-Men universe, years after the X-Men have disappeared. Now, people who have gene mutations that give them gifts are being held in government facilities until they learn to “control their gifts”. Reed Strucker is one of the people who tries to be an attorney for mutants on trial. His family is fairly normal, but he and his wife are worried about their son Andy who might be being bullied at school.

When Andy and his sister Lauren go to a school dance, Lauren spends time with her boyfriend while Andy sits on the sidelines. But then the boys who have been tormenting him show up at the dance, and drag him off to the bathrooms. When spraying him with scalding shower water in the face, Andy loses it trying to free himself, and his powers are triggered. He tears the school apart, causing everyone to flee from the dance, and his sister having to use her shield powers to come and save him. Their whole family is now on the run from the government as they protect their two gifted children.

Can I please say how refreshing it is to see a family that actually cares about each other on a TV show? Like honestly, when the father heard that his children had the genetic mutation, he automatically thought “How can I protect them?” instead of “This will ruin my career”. The mother was also protective of her children when they show up on her doorstep as fugitives, immediately going with them to escape the agents that show up at their doorstep. Lauren and Andy may occasionally bicker about stupid things, but she never blamed her brother for her having to leave the school and town she probably loved. She was always protective of him, and willing to help him, like a true older sister should be. I just love this family so much!

Anyways, the storyline and action scenes were amazing. I just focused on the parts of the family in the episode, as they were my favorite, but there is also the side of the rogue mutants on the run who are trying to protect themselves. One of them is put into jail while helping a newly escaped mutant to get to the “safe house”, and her boyfriend is trying to break her out of the facility in order for them to both be safe and sound. This is by no means a boring storyline, but it is not out of the norm for TV shows. I didn’t dislike it, but it didn’t stand out to me as much as the loving family.

I would recommend the Gifted for anyone who is looking for a fresh action show to watch this season. It looks amazing, it is amazing, and airs on Fox on Monday nights.

Overall Episode Rating: 6/5
