Material Queen: Final Episode (and final rant)
|Yeah, I had that WTF expression too|
It took two weeks of MQ rest and assurances that 22 really was the final episode for me to finally give in and watch it. It's one of those things where I figured I'd already made it through the worst, so might as well watch the happy ending unfold.
I'm not sure what to say about it (aside from the upcoming rant, that is). I mean, with a show as awful as MQ became, I had very low expectations. But even those managed to be disappointed.
|And Vanness' WTF|
|The assistant's so excited for the coming plot reveal|
We all probably figured Keg was Jia Hao's sponsor after seeing his round silhouette appear in the marketplace. So this was kinda set up, but mostly not, because even in the name of proving love Keg really didn't need to do the nonsensical stuff that he did, like almost-marrying Chu Man. He couldn't have just used his spy skills to a better cause and explained away the misunderstanding to Jia Hao before all this happened?
|Keg's wife, in the flesh|
|They're kinda a cute couple|
|Super-spy (and stalker) Keg|
|The doggie-cane Vanness managed to get a clear mental image of|
And as for all the drama in episode 21, apparently it was all a play put on by Keg, with his infinite wealth and spare time.
I have no words for how disgusted I am at this poor excuse for a plot twist. At least the angst and drama of 21 was semi-realistic. This, however, completely undermines the whole series, bringing it down to a level of falsity and cheesiness that leaves me unable to maintain even a semblance of respect for the story.
At least the Peter part of the ending was kinda funny. Now all I want is to quickly forget this trash excuse of a drama.
|Awww our cute couple. Now if only I cared.|
