Unmei no Hito eps 1 and 2
WHAT I LIKED
- Great cast. Motoki Masahiro, Matsu Takako, Omori Nao (Hagetaka), Maki Yoko and Manpyou Daisuke. Awesome acting all around. Nice to see Maki Yoko get a meaty role.
- You see the ending in the beginning along with flashes of what will happen during the series..... and it doesn't matter cause its still a bloody exciting political drama. Its all about execution.
- You got politics, cover up and debates about the role of journalists. Lots of issues to cover. Should journalists play kingmaker? Does the public have the right to know sensitive and confidential government documents?
- Main character is an idealist who is also very headstrong to the point of ignoring others. Lots of characters who will do anything to do achieve their goals. Whether they are right or wrong or whether the end justifies the means is up for debate. The characters aren't as clean as Kanryoutachi no Natsu and more realistic.
- Newbie reporter used to explain stuff to the audience who is not a johnny and does not appear more than necessary. cough Ai no Nedan. cough.
- I thought WOWOW was going to save this season with Suitei Yuzai (it still can) but I'm surprised this excellent show is from TBS and not NHK.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE
- Not enough people downloading the sub files. Please pimp this dorama.
- Just realised that ep 3 subs are out and its 2 am. Sleep can wait....
