There was something comfortable about watching Switch. It felt a little like coming home, which is odd to say about a drama that was full of twists. I reminded me, forcibly, of USA Network’s White Collar and TNT’s Leverage. All three shows drew me in because of the characters with contrasting moral codes, the unexpected plots, and the likable ensembles.

Oh man, y’all — Signal was an incredible bit of storytelling. Thank you for choosing that drama for me! Fingers crossed for a season 2, right? Let’s chat about what I loved and why I think it DEFINITELY deserves a second season.
At least once a year this inevitably happens. I start watching a Korean crime drama and get so pissed off at police stupidity that I start searching elsewhere for my crime trope fix. Sure enough, I started Criminal Minds and within an hour I was yelling, “Nope, nope, nope.” and searching for something else. Just so happens that my all time Japanese bias had released a crime drama earlier in the year and it was completely subbed! It is amazing the things you miss when you actually have real life interfering with drama addiction. But in this case, it is a great surprise since I can now binge the heck out of Oguri Shun’s newest show Crisis. And that, of course, means writing a blog post to try and encourage all of my amazing readers to give it a try with me. Drama enabling is alive and well here at DWASOK. Continue reading
