“Quaranthings S2” Series Review (Ep.1 to 8)

This series is simply an abject failure. It abandoned all the charm and creativity of Season One and instead it was replaced with a banal and boring journey of childishness and self-centered indulgences.

“Rainbow Prince” Series Review (Ep.1 to 10)

I am going to come right out and say it: I LOVED THIS SERIES! It is pure escapism and entertained me despite all its cheesiness, tropes, and flat-affect acting. I did not care about any of that. What it did was to allow me for a moment to become a child again and muse. Additionally, whether realized or not, I think this series is ground-breaking for several very important reasons:

“Love At The End of The World” Series Review (Ep.1 to 9)

“From the day we arrive on the planet

And, blinking, step into the sun

There’s more to see than can ever be seen

More to do than can ever be done

There’s far too much to take in here

More to find than can ever be found

In the circle

The circle of life”

“Jack & Jill” Series Review (Ep.1 to 8)

This is a surprisingly good series. A bit too short, however. It does not pretend to be anything than what you see. This is no masterpiece, but it gets to a story quickly with some excellent dialogues and exchanges. The acting, sorry to say, is a bit amateurish in parts and has no real depth in the beginning. But towards the end, the two main protagonists become believable and effective.
