Spoilers, as usual.

Well, this has got to be my favorite Agent Carter episode to date, though I would have liked to see more of Jarvis.

Howard Stark is back in town, supposedly to steal back a glorified light switch from the SSR. As if. Finally, we find out the secret that he and Jarvis has been keeping, and, boy, is it a big one! Peggy has every right to be furious at Howard, and her speech was full of so much emotion. Continue reading

As I was going through reviews for another show, I saw someone do a reflections post for ever episode they watched, and thought it was a creative idea to get thoughts down. So, I decided to give it a try.

Full Reviews: Swipe, Tap, Love (愛我請留言) – 2014

Genres: Romance, Comedy, Family, Friendship, Heart-Warming

Overall Rating: 9/10

When I first started Swipe, Tap, Love (STL), I was a little worried about how slowly it was progressing, but the first episode showed promise. Now that I’ve finished it, I’m immensely glad I did. It has become one of my favorite TVB dramas, with its human feel, character and relationship development, and downright cuteness. STL is thought-provoking, delving into aspects of life that is relatable to so many regardless of situation.

STL doesn’t follow the usual TVB feel or “formula.” Most of the plot points were refreshing and original. It was interesting to see its approach to technology and its impact on relationships as our world becomes increasingly digital. So many of us in the newer generations read articles like “What do the texts mean?,” “Why hasn’t my significant other replied?,” etc., and very few dramas touch on this, but STL does. One thing I’ve found about TVB dramas are that the resolutions and last episodes are much less well thought out that the rest of the drama. However, STL is one of the few that ties up all of the storylines well.

The rest of the review contains spoilers.
