Thanks Moonmoon for reminding me that I have the option of creating a DC for this drama! Because of the back-end shenanigan of cutting and uncutting, I’m in no desire to write recaps, so here it is, a place to rant and rave. In the future, just let me know if you would like a place to discuss a drama, but be prepared to accept the position of ring leader. 😉

Cdrama: Sound of the Desert Episodes
Triumph in the Skies 2: Episode 16 – 20 “Not meant to be.”
You see the blue sign? How fitting, isn’t it?
This set of episodes are uneven in emotions. Most intense scenes take place in the first three episodes and the last two flake out, adding more irrelevant characters to a cast that is already too big. I do not care about Bee, Flowers, Apple, and Pink Pink, OKAY? Can we just skip their sob stories and insert some flight emergency/action? We haven’t had any major accidents in the sequel! If last week’s theme was reunion, this week is breakups. These are mature breakups, not noble idiocy that we see so many times in Kdramas. They break up for the same reasons they got together. Isn’t that an interesting concept to mull over?
Triumph in the Skies 2: Episode 11 – 15 “Reunions.”
hee! Love the friendship moments in this drama. The two dorks and their seduction of Batman’s Robin. 😛 Seems like the running theme of this batch of episodes is reunion. Reunion of friends, lovers, ideas, and differences. Opposite from the prequel where the cameo appearances were from big stars, I quite like low-key additions of guest stars here. The effect is not huge to disrupt the flow but small enough to make an impact on our characters, forcing them to look at issues from a different angle. Holiday’s missing boyfriend arc has a closure and we finally learn why Sam’s been swimming in a sea of regret regarding Zoe.
Triumph in the Skies 2: Episode 6 – 10 “Fun with aviation jargon!”
Mother Hen and the three gossipers! I love when these four share the same scene. It’s light and fuzzy and cute. And Sam’s reaction is hilarious as he feels challenged by the hyperactive Holiday, playful with Coco, and critical of Isaac. Yet together, these three dominate the mother hen with their mischief. Careful there Sam, losing MOAR hair doesn’t do your image any good. Breathe! And now I’m just sad that our little makeshift family is split up in the next few episodes for the development of other story threads, especially that pesky thing we call love. Oh yea, it comes with multiple sides too. What? You don’t like subtle hints? We have a doll for that! Meet triangle!
Triumph in the Skies 2: Episode 1 – 5 “Unexpectedly good!”
Men are handsome in uniform. Yes, yes?
Great flight guys! It’s a good sign when I sat down and breezed through 5 episodes like they did not take away five hours of my day. Old and new characters meshed in very well, with chemistry exploding from left to right. The conversations were surprisingly very funny and witty. Oddly enough, there were no emergency plane situations in the first five episodes. Considering Tvb’s style, this will change pretty soon. But I guess they have 38 episodes for those incidents. Heh. So far, it’s more character-driven than anything, but I don’t find myself feeling the urge to fast forward any scene. It’s a testament to the writer’s strength in turning mundane dialogues into entertainment. 🙂
TVB 45th Anniversary Awards Ceremony (2012): “Well-deserved!”
Is all I have to say. Your favorites might not win, but it’s hard to argue against the winners. Everyone looked happy and moved, and the camaraderie was palpable among the contestants. The stage looked nice this year, not the usual bright and shiny getup. We have a dark blue canopy with stars shining overhead. The one thing that stood out was the fashion. Ladies, you’re PRETTY! Dress BETTER!
