PR: “Chopped” gets more heated on its new season 

There’s a lot of cooking competitions on reality TV but nothing gets as wicked as “Chopped.” The show follows the simple premise where the skills,  speed and creativity of participating chefs always come to play.   Each week, four chefs compete before a panel of expert judges and turn baskets of mystery ingredients into an…

The Royals – Pageantry, but Without the Pomp and Sophistication

It’s been a quite a while since my favorite guilty pleasure, Gossip Girl, has been off the air. Since then, there’s an obvious lack of a TV show with all the glitz, glamour, plush velvet chairs and expensive interior decoration — I have actually changed allegiance and have become a true convert of the legion…

The Bromance of Korean TV show 2Days, 1 Night

Like any aging yuppie, I am already past the phase of clubbing and crazy nights out. I noticed that I have become boring, prone to becoming a creature of habit, has started to prefer “staying in” rather than “staying out” and has no ounce of the dreaded FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) virus.

Bad Guys – finally a Korean drama loved by the Hubs

Like fashion, shoes and cosmetics, the love of Korean drama is something that is solely the women and the fashionable gay men’s territory.

Worst wedding. Ever.

Here’s one wedding where we truly hated being invited to witness the festivities! Yes, we are talking about Game of Thrones “Red Wedding” – as shown in the 9th episode, “The Rains of Castlemere”. We know it’s so late harping on the episode, but we managed to see the episode just recently in our neck…

Having a belated taste of Skins (UK)

I don’t know what kind of rock or cave I’ve been hiding six years ago to have missed “Skins” – particularly its first season which aired on Channel E4 in the UK. Maybe I was busy watching Smallville or some execrable local TV show, I don’t know. A better answer would be that I am…

Over the wall and over the moon with Rooftop Prince

Rooftop Prince is good!!! Watch it. Watch it. Waaaaaaaaaaaatch it!!! I wish I could summarize Rooftop Prince with just the above statements, and quite honestly, the above will actually suffice. This 2012 drama, starring Mickey Yoochun/Park Yoochun of idol boyband JYJ (formerly TVXQ) and Han Ji-min, plus with awesome support from Lee Min-ho (NOT that…
