Still 2Gether – เพราะเราคู่กัน (2020) Episode 4 [Review]

Episode 4 of Still 2gether was a filler sort of episode where even a die-hard fan like me questions Tine’s seemingly exaggerated sadness over Sarawat being gone. However, I did appreciate some of the moments where he realized how he had been very casual in his approach to Sarawat and this relationship. All is well in the world of the other two couples so far, and it was good to finally have a definitive direction for Mil & Phukong because I was scared Mil would not change his stand until the very end (and then have another high five!)

Gameboys The Series – Episode 8 [Review]

At the end of Episode 7, Cai gets the call from his mother about his father’s passing. Cai breaks down, but it is not just his tears that made the viewers cry but also the silent tears of total empathy from Gav, who wants to be with Cai at this moment but Cai logs out without a word.

You lived your life fully happily – for yourself and the people you cared for – and we take comfort & pride in that

Roommate the Series รูมเมทเดอะซีรีส์ | Episode 4 & Special [Review]

On August 16th, when the trailer for Episode 4 was released on Twitter, the Roommate series team also shared a message to the fans because a lot of us were surprised and upset to see that this series had only four episodes. Thankfully, we got a special episode for this series this week, which in my opinion, was just “Episode 5” because it was the proper closure to this sweet story. But what’s in a name! I am sure most of the viewers are pleased with this show and the way it ended.

Still 2Gether – เพราะเราคู่กัน (2020) Episode 2 [Review]

Everyone who knows me on twitter is aware of my love for 2gether the Series [yeah, even the high-five did not make me like #SarawatTine any less], so when Still 2gether was announced with a different director, I was very excited. The trailer and the first episode totally lived up to my expectations (and then some). The first episodes ended on a really high note with a lot of humor, love, and quite organic conflicts with a resolution for all of them.

Roommate the Series รูมเมทเดอะซีรีส์ | Episode 3 [Review]

On August 16th, when the trailer for Episode 4 was released on Twitter, the Roommate Series team also pinned the message below for the fans because a lot of us were surprised and disappointed to see that this series only has four episodes –

Dear Fans:

The “Roommate the Series • This room is for only you” is a small project that all of us wanted to create as a Boys Love series. All of us, the staff, and the actors worked together to think and create this series for ourselves.  [We] do not have the budget. There are not any sponsors.  Everything we do [was done] by ourselves. And [we] just want to make a great short-series on our channel, so we [could] only do four episodes. Thank you for all [of] your support. Every criticism and compliment, every encouragement, and everyone who loves and supports our series. That [is] beyond our expectations. If there is an opportunity, [and] Double M Studio and “Roommate the Series • This room is for only you” get support from a sponsor, we hope we’ll be able to create works that will come out for everyone to see in the future and we will make it even better.

Sincerely

Double M Studio

Gameboys The Series – Episode 6 [Review]

Saying sorry to someone you love is hard. But it’s easier than losing someone you love for not saying sorry

At the end of Episode 5, we saw Cai questions Gavreel about using his grandmother’s demise as a sob story to make guys fall for him, which triggers strong emotions in Gav. Because of this, Gav asks Cai if he wants him to stop courting and for them to end their communication. Gav is too hurt by this, and he drops the call, unable to control his tears.

Still 2Gether – เพราะเราคู่กัน (2020)

Months after 2Gether the Series ended, most of the BL fans have now moved to make memes or are still raging about the way Sarawat & Tine high-fived (sigh! I seriously was not expecting that from the showrunners) to show their love for each other in the last episode. While many of us were already upset with the last-minute, and convoluted plot twists, the last episode totally crushed all the hopes of seeing even a little intimacy between the boyfriends. (quite a fair request, right?) But even with that outrage, you simply cannot ignore the numbers of views this series received and the way it ruled worldwide trends on Twitter for hours after it premiered on Friday nights.

Life Senjou no Bokura 線上の僕ら (2020) Episode 4 [Review]

In the first three episodes, we saw Itou and Yuki meet and fall in love with each other as if they were fated to be together. After the initial years of trying to be in sync with each other and their own desires and expectations, the two have settled into domestic life routines by the age of 25. Episode 3 started the same but ended with Itou breaking up with Yuki and marrying Honoka instead.

We are just little dots that were forced into this world like this,  helpless and lonely. That is why someday we search for another dot to connect with, Someone that we can form a line with and live on…

HIStory2: Right or Wrong 是非 [Review]

My introduction to the HIStory series was through Trapped, which is my favorite story in the web drama anthology created by Chang Ting-fei. “Right or Wrong” is one of the four-episode stories in the second season of this series, but the one that I watched the last. [And I regret judging it by the synopsis alone]

He wants to drag you into the sunlight to walk together; So you shouldn’t drag him into the darkness to hide
