We are finally looking forward to the finale episodes. The plot turns a little convoluted at this point. The ending was vague and left a lot to be desired. But at least none of the main characters die, so that’s a saving grace. I was truly disappointed with the show’s scriptwriters for giving Thien, a very abysmal ending. Let’s review and see what’s happening with our main characters.Continue reading “Adam’s Secret 2 – My Brother | Bímậtcủa Adam | Episodes 13 – 14 [Review]”
Those things we can’t find closure on, they will haunt us. I think that phrase best described the journey of Mark in Truly Very Yours, a new Pinoy BL series that aims to bring more colors into the emerging BL industry in the Philippines. Surrounded by tough competition, such as Gameboys the Series, Hello Stranger, and Sakristan, Truly Very Yours hopes to attract viewers’ attention by offering a simple love story that is close to their daily lives. Although it seems promising, I can’t stop myself but ask, will it be enough to make it memorable?
Well, let’s find out!Continue reading “Truly Very Yours Review (Episodes 1-5) [Review]”

Pearl’s (Adrianna So) new addition to the story gave the series a new dimension that the representation of women in BL series who are or were attached to one of the protagonists can be portrayed as supportive and healthy. Her character appeared to pose a threat to the budding romantic attraction between Cairo (Elijah Canlas) and Gavreel (Kokoy de Santos), but Episode 3 cleared the air and instantly transformed her into the major shipper we all love today. Pearl was later given the title “Pambansang Shipper” or the national shipper of BL tandems in the Philippines.Continue reading “Gameboys The Series – Episode 4 [Review]”

Phong and Vu are finally together, but that doesn’t mean the end of the problems. Instead, our sweet couple is riddled with trust issues and an unwanted pregnancy. On the other hand, Thien is faced with an unacceptable alternate reality that he can’t comprehend. I’m enjoying the trope so far as the show keeps throwing unpredictable twists and turns. At least it’s better than the monotonous plot contrivances in the original Thai movie “My Bromance.” Let’s see what is happening with our main couple as they try to understand each other.Continue reading “Adam’s Secret 2 – My Brother | Bímậtcủa Adam | Episodes 9 – 12 [Review]”
Every story, even the one that we love so dearly, must eventually come to an end. And it’s about time to say goodbye to Gun and Bar as they conclude their love story in the final episode of TOSSARA. Previously, the doctor and the head hazer have come clean about their relationship by announcing their status as boyfriends to the whole university. With them being a couple and no further obstacles coming to their relationship, it seems that they have gotten their perfect ending already. Thus, I can’t help but ask: is it even necessary to add another episode to the series?
Well, let’s find out!Continue reading “EN of Love – TOSSARA: Episode 4 Finale [Review]”
