Love At Seventeen: Episode 3 “Adulthood.”

Last recap for this drama on my end (not like many are reading!). There is only a handful of times you could shove a scene down my throat and call it romance or the tingling of teenage hormones, director. I thought we had something special, but this episode churned out cliché one after another, and the lead up to the ultimate split was dull and predictable. (Unless they are totally duping me?!)

Love At Seventeen: Episode 2 “Family Reunion.”

There are so some lovely character moments, as well as some in-your-face OTP moments. I know I praised the director before and he still does well in many scenes but can someone walk him out the door when it comes to romantic scenes? Subtlety is not his forte. Lol.

Love At Seventeen: Episode 1 “Deftly Directed.”

And unlike you, this missy does not know a handsome manager to get her a job! Oy, the pains of reality. Anyway, the plot is moving at a snail’s pace, and if it weren’t for the likable cast, I might not have continued this far.

Aim High: Episode 1 “Never stop dreaming.”

And that ladies and gentlemen, is the lesson for today! Never let anyone rain on your dreams and definitely, never let anyone tell you to stop dreaming! 🙂

SETTV’s latest offering on Fridays gives us Aim High, (another) story following (another) group of friends as they live, dream, and struggle in today’s brutal working society. You sense my skeptical attitude yet? At the end of the hour, I liked what I saw in these kids adults. The name brings me back to my own high school moments, how we gathered around the teacher’s desk and guessed who scored the highest on the weekly calculus test (such nerds we were!), and one of my friends would say, “Aim high, so when you fall, you fall within your true range.” The response he always got was, “Shut up!”

Now that I think about his quote, I snicker, that puny-sized wise kid.
