“My Friendship: S1 & S2: Before The Rainbow” Series Review

Though it may not be necessary to watch part 1 before part 2, it might make more sense to watch it since part 2 is the prequel to part 1. However, I watched part 2 before the first series. For me, it was not necessarily the smoothest of transitions. But the story is simple and basic, yet it conveys a sense of life as it exists. One comes to terms with who he is and the other does not. There are only two characters in this series and so the whole story is shouldered on the strength and conviction of these two young men.

“War of Y” Series Review (Ep.1 to 20)

There are four anthologies involved in this series. The four are tangentially connected but in the most loosely defined way. Each involves a ship in the world of Y from various dimensions, none of which are flattering, or display any sense of socially acceptable behaviors. To be sure, every profession has its unsavoriness, but this series tended to show that every aspect of the BL industry is fraught with ruthlessness and pain. Is it worth it? For many, it is their life-long dream, but it is paid at a very high cost.

“Big Dragon Season One” Series Review (Ep. 1 to 8)

This BL series is like taking a canoe ride down an unknown river- you never know what is around the bend. The first leg of the journey, I would say the first three episodes, were exciting, fun and different (for a Thai BL). Then the trip got boring and meandered because of too many tributaries to choose in which direction to paddle, and in the end, after hitting a couple of rocks that nearly capsized the boat, we finally ended on the dock, saying to ourselves, “Did I enjoy that journey?”

“Never Let Me Go” First Impressions (Ep. 1 to 3)

This GMMTV answer to KinnPorsche hasn’t gripped me in the way that I thought it would. It’s alright; I don’t dislike it. It just hasn’t given me that “wow” feeling like I have with other GMMTV series like My School President and The Warp Effect, but again, I don’t dislike it.

“The Warp Effect” First Impressions (Ep.1 to 3)

The Warp Effect is a GMMTV sex comedy that is pushing boundaries in directions the company (at least from what I’ve seen) hasn’t been to before. Fluid sexualities, kinks, and a blatant and unapologetic approach to responsible sex. Honestly, I’m here for it. New Thitipoom (Dark Blue Kiss, SOTUS) stars as Alex, a seventeen-year-old high school student who made a promise to his mother (before she passed away) that he would wait until he was 18 (and had found the right girl) to have sex. But he broke that promise (and lost the ring that came with it) while he was drunk out of his mind at a party hosted by his friend Jedi (Mark Pakin, My School President).
