BBJX has just started airing on my local TV channel, and so my friends and moms/aunts/grandmas/cousins/nieces of friends r collectively watching it, I'll be shocked it doesn't break ratings for the channel. It has a 100% hit rate on its demography just on peeps I know alone. I think we chatted 30 min on BBJX alone at party yesterday, boring the men to their first taste of apocalypse 2012. Some of my RL friends don't have a clue I'm this huge closeted drama addict, and I'm not going to out myself scaring ppl I'm not close enough with, but when I told them I've watched it live and was a few wks of perpetual sobbing scary mess…I've retold bits of my BBJX experience, ad nauseum, on new year's day.
And now, I'm sitting down tonight and is watching regular TV for the first time in weeks, a random early episode on basic cable with my 2 newly addicted friends over dinner. It's the arc of making the case of a never meant to be 10RX ship and the budding 8RX (I would firmly stand its 8RL in roleplay) with tiny bits of 4/13 mixed it.
AND IT IS TEDIOUS, TIRESOME AND GET ME OUT OF HERE!!!!!
I dunno, since this is a rewatch, the scene progression is imprinted, leaving me too much ample energy to nitpick (my fav thing to do, apparently and am not amused). I've lost the feeling of liking Nicky's job here, it comes across to me as lots of posing, constipation and sorely lack complicated furballs of conflicting emotions I want to see for his character….I just dun see much under the mono-emotional surface,esp now that I know it's attraction in first sight for him. LSS looks insanely fatigued in HD, at times her eyes r so puffy and circles so dark I feel so bad for the poor girl, and sorry, in a double take, she's trying too hard most of the time. I still love my 13. KC, whom I thought did the greatest till the bitter end….is now having an undercurrent of pervie uncle wanting to get in pants of his niece kinda deal. AND there r cheap sets and CGs everywhere unresolved (I naively thought no freaken way TR is going to SELL it without fixing those jarring booboos)
The experience is made more aggravating with my spoilerphobe friend firm on 13RX is the OTP, love at first sight (yes, the same scene that we're supposed to be the first fateful meeting of 4RX yet it's 13RX/ YHLSS sizzling with chemistry) even when friend is still unable to rem Yuan Hong's name after the 19th time I've mentioned it in one episode. And her 13RX analysis r so right on, I can't bear to break her shipper heart, coz frankly in rewatch, there is little to nil sexy chemistry btn the OTP.
THEN when I can finally stop holding breath in fear I'll break out the news of the OTP to friend, a commercial is on for a new drama showing an hour earlier starting in a week. IN TIME WITH YOU!!
SHOOT ME NOW!!! I'm already getting nonstop eyetwitching on the fact that the same audience that's bombarding me with their new BBJX love will be harassing me with their ITWY obsession and both frenzy will be in a hellish 'synergy', I LOATHE ITWY!! It's my worst drama experience in the longest time. My acting is not good enough to fake niceties when forced to fakecare for ITWY. One wk is too short to emotionally prepare for my social perfect storm D!O!O!M!
I'm contemplating unsubscribing cable and be obnoxious and refuse good friends over for dinner and hanging out in the foreseeable future.
