TV, both Eastern and Western

I really, really want to watch Nice Guy, but I have been abstaining because I have this horrible feeling that this drama is going to make me cry. A lot. Plus I want to be able to see it all at once, so that I don't have to wait a week (or even a day!) when things start to go very, very bad. But it's hard! I am really excited to see Song Joong Ki playing something other than a loveable scamp or simply adorable (Will It Snow For Christmas, anyone?) From what I've heard so far, Maru is more than kind of a dick, and I am looking forward to seeing him start to change and develop real feelings for Eun Gi-but I am also really looking forward to her finding out what he is up to and kicking his ass (figuratively or literally - I'm good either way). Based almost purely on speculation, knowing only that at some point Eun Gi gets amnesia, and that it has yet to happen as of episode 6 - here's what I think goes down: Eun Gi finds out what Maru is up to, loses her shit (quite rightfully), and lambastes him. Then amnesia happens, and she somehow comes to believe that Maru is her boyfriend and he goes along (either because he really feels like a heel, as he really, really should, or because he's like "hey! revenge scheme BACK ON, motherfucker!"), only to later get her memory back and be twice as betrayed. I just can't decide if it would be better (from a viewing standpoint) if he goes along solely because of revenge or actual feelings, or a mix of both. I think a mix of both would be better, but I do know that I wouldn't want him to go along with it based purely on altruism or love. From the little I do know about the show (mostly as I quickly scroll past the oh-so-tempting recaps at dramabeans, koalas playground, etc) that doesn't hold with the after-heartbreak Maru. Granted this is all just speculation. Maybe the amnesia will be in the last episode after the two have made up and Eun Gi will be all "who the hell are you?" and Maru's heart will break for good. And it will be both delicious and horribly. Deliciously horrible.

I am a little worried about this one, because the last drama that I was really excited for was Big, and that one really failed to deliver for me in the end. I really hope that I don't force myself to wait only to find out that it all turns to shit at the end, becase that would be such a disappointment, although that sometimes seems to be par for the course with kdramas (at least the ones I like to watch - see Big, Personal Taste, Sungkyunkwan Scandal, Full House, etc).

ETA - Okay, just started Faith (I know), and so far all I have to say is "hee".

In other news, American Horror Story season two is all set to premier on October 17th, and I am ridiculously excited for it. Seriously, I shouldn't be looking forward to trash this much, but I can't help it. I mean, it was trash, yes, but it was fun trash...though I still don't think that the crappy male lead should have been allowed to be part of the Big Ol' Family at the end. Whatevs. I'm interested to see what characters the returning cast members will be playing, and whether or not I will be able to separate them from their original characters or not.

Other than that I'm not really excited for any shows. Will try to catch Elementary at some point, because I am curious, and will probably fade in and out of watching The Mentalist and </i>Psych</i>, as I do, but most likely will not keep to any set schedule. I might babble about these shows at some point, as well as Arang and the Magistrate and Faith on the kdrama end, but not with any regularity.

Also, have read more books since my last review, but have not sat down to write about them. Should probably get on that. Eh.
