This Week’s Wrap-Up: Oct 14-20

Marry Him If You Dare
This week is the premiere of Marry Him If You Dare starring Yoon Eun Hye, Lee Dong Gun, Jung Yong Hwa and Han Chae Ah. The Mirae (Yoon Eun Hye) in 2043 takes a time machine back to 2013 in attempt to stop her younger self from meeting her husband, Kim Shin (Lee Dong Gun). Fate is a scary thing as young Mirae still runs into Kim Shin despite ajumma Mirae preventing it from happening. Ajumma Mirae tells young Mirae to seduce the chaebol, Park Sae Joo (Jung Yong Hwa), who is working as a VJ to learn all the ins and outs of the broadcasting company that he will expand and make a huge empire by the year 2043.

One of the best parts of the drama is when ajumma Mirae was checking out profiles of bachelors at the matchmaking/dating agency and rejects all the A grade eligible bachelors saying that they all end up in prison. Grade B bachelors that include doctors and lawyers are also eliminated because “they all go bankrupt because there are too many of them.” The lady working for the matchmaking company looks at her disgustedly. Ajumma Mirae tells the matchmaker to hand her the Grade E bachelors. She is delighted to see the bachelors in that list to the surprise of the matchmaker. She calls them out to be future successful people, even including one that will be the secretary of the United Nations. LOL.

What would you do if you had the knowledge of the future?


Good Doctor withdrawal syndrome
No more Good Doctor! *sobs* How do we say goodbye to a great drama? Find all behind the scenes and blooper footage and watch them back-to-back…. Only that does not work here because there’s not that many clips of those. *sigh*. Time to stalk Joowon, Moon Chae Won and Joo Sang Wook’s fan sites for their post-drama interviews and such.

Heirs
Second week of broadcast for Heirs and it is still on my to-watch drama list. I did not get to it yet. Hey, there’s only that many hours in a day! Lots of hype, plenty publicity, cast members tweeting cute photos of themselves, behind the scenes photos and soundtrack by idol singers that it is impossible not to know the existence of the drama. Any comments on the drama? No spoilers please! (I do know about the skin crawling English speaking scenes and beautiful California backdrop so be free to comment on those)

To watch or not to watch? That is the question for Medical Top Team
Another medical drama after Good Doctor? I know it is not heading in the same direction but should I watch it? Recommendations please!

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
This show is awesome! Loved this week’s episode where the girl had a camera for an eye. Yes, ewww, but still awesome. The opening scene was the best where men in identical suits and red masks were walking in a group to transport $30 million worth of diamonds.

I like the dynamics of all the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents: a mastermind, a kick ass girl ninja, a handsome imma-save-the-world-on-my-own guy, a pair of cute and geeky scientists, and an unpredictable almost-girl-next-door genius hacker.  If you’ve seen the show you should be able to figure out who’s who.

Criminal Minds
For some reason, this week’s criminal also injected a camera in the victim’s eyes. Definitely much smaller than that of the one in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. But what’s up with the obsession with eyes this week? (I’ll spare you from the graphic screen caps)  It’s a case of sibling rivalry gone VERY wrong. There’s this sicko brother who is extremely jealous of his overachieving and straight laced sister being the favourite child of the family. He nabs her, performs a lobotomy, injects a camera into her eye and broadcasts that feed from the camera live on the internet. Eek! Her friend from medical school becomes collateral damage as he too becomes the second practice victim of the sicko brother. This episode had me cringing, face contorting and hugging my dear pillow for comfort.

The BAU gets a new section chief that has a special relationship with JJ: one where they have morning runs and breakfast together. There’s a mention of a case gone cold for 3 years and that seems to be the link between the two. What is that case about? Another great episode of spine chilling criminals and the awesome BAU agents!

Bones
Each episode is quite typical Bones style where there is a weekly crime and they solve it within a week. They have just killed off the serial killer in the previous episode. What most Bones fans are waiting for is the wedding that I think will be happening in next week’s episode.

The Blacklist
Another great new show that I am enjoying! This week’s episode was about a murderer that they call The Stewmaker. His modus operandi is dissolving human bodies with a chemical cocktail. Eww. Agent Keen is abducted and is the next victim of The Stewmaker. (Get her outta there!) the FBI and Reddington try to get to her before she is dissolved into nothingness and Reddington gets there first. He then drops The Stewmaker into the chemical concoction in the tub that was original meant for Agent Keen.

Just to lighten things up after all the talk about crime TV series… The Chew
Saw this on The Chew and it killed my appetite. I think I’ve found the best weight loss secret. This guy is eating noodles out of his beard bowl. *hurl*

Hayday has gone creepy
It’s Halloween in Hayday town and all your animals are dress in Halloween costumes. The best one goes to the sheep, looking all ghost-like and translucent. It’s a little annoying sometimes because it seems that you can’t see it properly to collect wool… There is a new Mayor events in Hayday where you get to contribute specific items in return for stars and some coins. After a certain level of contribution, you would be able to access the global event.

OMG!  Do you hate iOS7?
I hate it baaaaaad.  It crashes on me when I have all too many tabs in Safari.  It crashes when I’m getting nosy on Facebook.  It crashes on me when I’m reading the news.  Gaaahhh!!
