7/7/16 Mega jdorama round up!
I so wanted to like this WOWOW show. Three people; a yakuza, jietai member and political secretary were betrayed and then brought together so they can help each other get revenge. The writing is oh so bad I cannot begin to describe it.
Instead of being a more WOWOW style revenge show, its more like a mainstream cop show where there is a lot of posturing and trying to look cool without any regard to logic. Avoid. Seriously so disappointed in WOWOW.
GOOD PARTNER Eps 1-3
The best of the bunch, which isn't saying much. Takenouchi Yutaka has gone from taxi driver to lawyer and his chemistry with Matsuyuki Yasuko is good. Its not like we get a lot of corporate law doramas.
The only thing I don't like is Yutaka's shtick of taking his badge off and saying I'm not going to talk to you as a lawyer but as a person. Three episodes in, there's no reason not to watch Good Partner but there hasn't been anything particularly good either. I'm just going to keep watching cause of the cast.
Mystery suspense show with lots of idorus who can't act based on a famous visual novel (I think). This might be so bad its watchable and I can't make sense of episode 2's ending and episode 3's preview so I'll keep watching.
Another super trashy and cheesy Hirugao style 'adult' show to kill off more brain cells. Its so bad only its targeted audience can appreciate it.
On a related note, Inagaki Goro is just a horrible actor. I have never ever seen him in anything that made me think he can act. Only for people who enjoyed Hirugao. Everyone else avoid.
Santamaria Yusuke is creepy guy who was once accused of murder by was found not guilty. He moves next door to the judge who freed him and befriends the family. The family members don't come across as very smart although to be fair, they all of motivations for behaving the way they do. Its just the family members are like those victims in horror movies.
They are there to do stupid things and die but no one in the family has died yet. In summary, I don't care about the family and there has not been an exciting twist yet. Small chance it might turn very exciting in the end but I can't be stuffed finding out. Meh.
I am giving up on this series for now because I really need Japanese subs for this and because I cannot stand how this dude always mumbles his freaking lines. Seriously, Japanese subs should be mandatory everytime he opens his mouth. WTF was his Japanese teacher who never taught him how to enunciate properly?
