A dying army commander, an indolent emperor, a man trapped in servitude and a plot to take back a kingdom’s lost territory. This is the core of the move Shadow, which sees director, Zhang Yimou, reuniting with his House of Flying Daggers cinematographer, Zhao Xiaoding, for another visually enticing, as well as intriguing, film. I’d read a lot of great things about this movie and when I saw that it was posted to LeTV’s official YouTube page, I had to watch it.
Finally, the end is here! Can’t believe I made it through all 60 episodes after everyone else gave up. I must be a crazy person. 🙂 There are some actors on this show who I hope to see again in other series, but I hope I never end up recapping a series like this one again. Don’t think I could make it through next time.
So let’s finish the final three episodes of Martial Universe!
Did a marathon of last week’s episodes to catch up on this series before the final three episodes and now I’m all annoyed with this series all over again. This week was flashbacks galore, sad music galore, pity parties everywhere, things get even more complicated and then they ended the week by breaking my heart. *sigh* If Lang Tian doesn’t suffer a miserable death at the end of this… argh!!!
So let’s hurry up and get through week 4 of Martial Universe!
After moving to another state and trying to get settled in, I’m catching up on the latest episodes of Martial Universe. This week our Tiger finally found his Tigress (or I should say Fox), Lang Tian still can’t be defeated, Qing Zhu finally finds out what happened to her father and Lin Diao even shows that he’s more than just a little brat.
As October comes to a close, so does Season 2 of Let’s Shake It. Hope you guys enjoyed these recaps and that it helped you to follow along with the show while you wait for subs. Let us know what you thought of the series and the finale. Do you want to see a third season or was this a good end to the story? Are you following Zheng Yecheng and An Yuexi in their new series (An Oriental Odyssey and Granting You a Dreamlike Life)?
For one last time, join Enid Bee and Linja as we post the final recaps for Let’s Shake It: Trouble on Planet Duo.
Now that Dramafever is no longer, I’ll be watching this show on Viki.com and, since they aren’t turning episodes around as quickly as Dramafever was, there may be a two or three day delay for me to post the recaps for the week, but I’ll keep posting as soon as they are finished.
This week: Lang Tian bites the hand that fed him…and takes her powers, my favourite Tiger finally returns, Lin Dong reunites with his sister, some characters get killed off, and we travel to the Demon Domain and meet a bunch of new characters including Lin Diao’s family and future wife. So let’s start week 2 of Martial Universe!
Get your tissues handy. We finally get to the Tang Dynasty, but only after a literally gut-wrenching scene. And now there are two Tang Qing Feng’s for Abu to deal with, but she doesn’t know which one is really her’s. We also finally meet Tang Qing Feng’s mom and see that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. And there are more familiar faces as well.
Since I did a Review post for Age of Legends as the show was starting up, I thought I’d add a Discussion Post now that the series finished up this week. Judging from various comments and chats I’ve seen, it seems like there were quite a few of you watching it who didn’t realise anyone else was and others who were thinking of watching, but weren’t sure if you should commit the time. I really enjoyed it, but wanted to see what you thought about it.
So what did you think of the show? What did you like about it? What did you wish had been done better? Would you recommend it for others and why? Is William Chan the next big action star? How did you like his work on this series compared to his past work? Are you looking forward to his next series, Dancing in the Storm? Who else stood out for you in this series?
