The Weekly Recap (148)

Posted July 27, 2020 by Rowena in Features | 4 Comments

This week has been one heck of a week. Exactly one week from finding out that my cousin’s husband died from COVID-19 and that my cousin herself was recovering from COVID-19, we found out that my best friend’s uncle died from COVID-19 too. That’s three cases that are near and dear to me. This shit is real, no matter how much the naysayers say it isn’t. It’s really frustrating to me to see all of these Facebook posts about COVID-19 being a hoax and we shouldn’t be forced to wear masks out in public because when the hell did all of these guys become doctors and nurses? Where did they get their medical degree from? Wear a damn mask or stay your ass home. Pick one.

My nephew Chase turned 18 on Saturday and poor thing, nobody was here to celebrate his becoming an adult with him. Just all of us old folks. So his birthday green wall were with his family but none of his buddies in his family were here. They’re all in Colorado and Utah. He’s trying real hard to get himself to Utah but unfortunately for him, it looks like he won’t be going up until we all leave for our family vacation in two weeks. Still, happiest of birthdays to Chase. He’s one of the good ones and he finished his Eagle Scout project so he’s officially an Eagle Scout. All of the blankets were finished and delivered and his Scout book is complete so he can move to Utah for school with the knowledge that he wrapped everything up here in California.

That’s about it on the personal front so let’s get into what I’ve gotten into this week…

What I’m Currently Watching

It’s Okay to Not Be Okay
Abyss

I was a bit busier this weekend than I normally am, so I still haven’t watched this weeks episodes of It’s Okay to Not Be Okay though I will be taking care of that today. I’m probably watching it when this post goes live and after last week’s episodes, I’m super anxious to get them watched. This show is so stinkin’ good.

I will also be starting Abyss today too. My girl Strong Woman Do Bong Soon is in this show and I’m low key interested because I’ve been seeing such great reviews of this show so I’m going to start it after I finish this week’s eps of It’s Okay to Be Okay. Wish me luck.

What I Watched

Suits | 4.5 out of 5
Be With You | 4.25 out of 5
W | 4.5 out of 5
Touch Your Heart | 3.5 out of 5

My favorite watch of the week goes to Suits. Even though I watched the American Suits from beginning to end and the Korean Suits was a remake of it, I still really enjoyed the slight differences that the Korean Suits made. I liked the American Harvey and Donna but Korean Mike Ross was the bomb. He absolutely made this show so much better than I was expecting. His Rachel was pretty awesome too. What surprised me with Korean Suits was how much more invested I was in the everyday business of the show. The romances were pretty much background noise to everything else going on but the main romance that we got was super sweet and though it ended on a hopeful note, I still appreciated having it included in the show. Korean Mike and Rachel were a great couple!

My least favorite watch of the week is one that I enjoyed but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the others that I watched. It was a bit on the cheesy side and the female lead was super extra and ditzy and I rolled my eyes so many different times throughout the entire season. That show is Touch Your Heart. I watched this show because I really enjoyed both of the main leads secondary romance in Goblin so I was happy to see them in their own show, front and center. Like I said, this was good just not as good as the others.

  1. I’m so sorry to hear about the COVID deaths in your family. People in this country are utter morons and we will never get rid of this virus because of them. Watch how the anti-vaxxers will be a set-back when the vaccine come into the market. So many unnecessary deaths. 🙁 My condolences to your family.

    Happy Birthday to your nephew Chase. I’m sorry he wasn’t able to have a big celebration but perhaps when this all goes away you can plan something.

    Ooh, I’m glad you liked the Korean Suits. I’ve had my eyes on it. I just finished Because This Is My First Life last week and I enjoyed that a ton. Have you seen that one? I started Voice last night and phew, that is going to be a stressful show!

    • Thanks, one of the funerals was today. They didn’t have a public funeral so I watched it on Zoom. What a weird time to be alive. Everything is online and people still think that the whole covid thing is a hoax. All of those people can bite me.

      Thanks, he had a good day even though he missed everyone. He’s probably counting down the days until we leave for Utah. I’m doing the same thing so I don’t blame him.

      Yessss, Korean Suits was great! I liked that it wasn’t dragged out over 7 years and that everything wrapped up nice and tight after 16 episodes. So great! I haven’t watched either of the shows that you mentioned but I’m going to check them out now. I’m guided to dramas by who’s in them so I’m watching shows with all of my actor crushes and my crush list keeps getting longer and longer because there’s just so many! I’ll keep you posted though.
