It is true that we have a long way to go to resolve this pandemic. Things may get a lot worse before it gets better and 2020 is really doing its best to roll out red carpet for bad news. However, for the meantime,  it will not hurt to focus on the small bright spots in this endless wave of challenges to inspire us to move forward.

All in all, Her Private Life was so much more that its fangirling concept. It was an engaging journey about finding love, redemption, endings and beginnings in the most unexpected places. It doesn’t take an overly complicated plot or tons of kissing scenes (although the good news is that Her Private Life has plenty) to make a wonderful Kdrama work. A well planned story, with the addition of a great cast, great script and great soundtrack makes for a memorable Kdrama and this one is it.

In focusing on the style rather than substance, The Umbrella Academy just felt like a bunch of stuff thrown around to present an effort to produce an epic, and edgy superhero series that fans can get behind. Unfortunately, the show remains as a third chair in the genre filled with contenders for first as its crescendo fell way short of a bravo! 

All in all, , What Happened to Monday? had a very modern day Soylent Green vibe to it and its villain reminded me of Thanos minus the Infinity Gauntlet. But at the end of the day, its brilliance was hinged on the casting of an effective lead star like Noomi Rapace to serve up the acting and the action in equal heart pounding measure.
