The Eternal Love Episodes 1-3 (A Positive Recap)

.;a1a2s4a4We’re back and checking out the latest Chinese web series craze that all of social media seems to be talking about. Namely, the web drama The Eternal Love. Not only are we recapping, but upon deciding that we were sick of having to pull apart dramas for our weekly reviews, we decided to take a different approach. Did your mother ever tell you that if you don’t have something positive to say then say nothing at all? Well, we are taking that saying to heart and only saying positive things this time around.

So without further ado, let’s dive into the positive surrounding the first three episodes. Continue reading

1a49

Remember a year ago when I was so excited for Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy because of their 1st trailer?  In case you have forgotten, feel free to remind yourself by seeing the 1st trailer again HERE. Fast forward a year and we are still waiting for the dramas release.  A fact that would usually make me upset, except for one little thing.  They just created one of the most epic looking dramas in the history of dramas.  We are talking full all out Game of Thrones level production values.  Which means if I have to wait a year for them to create this grand of a drama… I’ll happily wait with bells on.
