Have been wanting to update for days, just about whats happening here and stuff but blogger wouldn't open.. now when i was able to log in, i have nothing to say.. so im writing about japanese TV.. boring probably unless you've seen it..
I’ve seen a couple of episodes of various dramas while in Japan.. Some were quite interesting, interesting enough to keep me entertained without understanding 95% of what was being said LOL. Here are a couple, im listing them so when the season’s over I can search for them online and watch them. I’m too impatient to wait week in week out to see what happens, so I prefer to wait until the season is over and I can watch the thing in one long drama fest ;)
My favourite is Bara no nai hanaya. Katori Shingo from SMAP is the lead.
I’ve also watched some eps of Saito-san which is quite funny.
Binbo Danshi, staring Oguri Shun. I didn’t like this one so much but I think I might of seen a boring episode.. the whole thing is probably interesting.
1 Pound no Fukuin, kazuya kamenashi’s newest drama. I don’t know what to make of it really, him falling for a nun LOL but the episode I watched was hilarious.
Edison no Haha, this is really good. About a teacher and this little naughty boy. I watched 2 eps and really enjoyed them
Sasaki Fusai no Jingi Naki Tatakai, this drama is being advertised everywhere, billboards, TV, everywhere but I have no idea about it except that Inagaki Goro from SMAP is the male lead.
I watched quite a lot of TV in Japan, for someone supposedly on holiday. Since my bro got up late every morning and we came back to the hotel early every evening, I had a lot of time and nothing to do. So I averaged about 4 hours of TV a day.. I watched so many interesting shows, and its interesting how I enjoyed them all without understanding much of what was being said.. its amazing actually LOL. OK, the stereotype about most Japanese shows being funny and whacky and bizarre as hell, is true! LOL but that’s a good thing.. I really enjoyed the show..
I’d like to talk about every show ive seen but I cant remember them and you’ll be bored to death, you have to see them to know what I mean ;)
There were these 2 guys on TV, wearing tight tank tops and tight speedo shorts, I saw them daily on more than one show. They are so hilarious.. at the beginning I hated them but then I got into them.. LOL I don’t know how to explain it.. On one of the shows they had to eat everything that baskin robbins sells.. took them 2 days and was funny as hell.. Watch this video of them if you want, maybe you’ll understand just a little bit of what im talking about.. (its about exercising in different situations, during a funeral, at an eye exam, while putting out a fire LOL)
Anyways, all I have to say is I LOVE JAPANESE TV! It’s the best!
