Shipping is a serious business in the Asian BL industry, with legions of fandoms invested in the offscreen camaraderie between their beloved idol’s.
An overlooked series that has both brilliance and occasional ineptness. Through its sporadic ups and downs, I was mesmerized by its message, that is both clear and muddy at the same time.
Approximately 5 minutes after I finished watching the finale of Bad Buddy (my sister and I had an unspoken rule to only watch it late at night after the rest of our family had fallen asleep so as to not let anyone and anything disturb the bliss of watching each episode), I tweeted this- “Please excuse me while I cry about #BadBuddySeriesตอนจบ the whole night and figure out how high it’s come on my favourite BL’s list”.
One of the most interesting things about watching Bad Buddy the Series or BBS has been seeing how its fandom grew from ‘oh this series looks interesting’ to ‘they did what?!’, finally culminating in ‘omg greatest series ever’ over the course of its twelve episodes. As to what I thought, well, that’s what this review is for.
Bad Buddy is a Romeo and Juliet-esque BL, about Pat and Pran, next-door neighbours, whose parents have decades long enmity.
55:15 Never Too Late was one of the shows I was really looking forward to from GMMTV’s 2021 line-up, because the premise seemed interesting and the cast promising, and I feel happy to say, six episodes in, that my anticipation was not misplaced.

Let me start off by saying that the vibe of the second season of Safe House was vastly different from the first in some ways, and exactly the same in others.
Pran: We know how it is going to end, why start at all?
The current episode is an actual portrayal of “Actions speak louder than Words”.
