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.

Material Queen: Almost-Final Review


Good god, will this drama ever end???!!! I started writing this review under the impression that it would end at 20 (which is already stretching it). Only, to find out at the end of last week that nope, there would be a 21. And having just finished 21, guess what? Still no ending!!!! Omg kill this story already. It's drowning way beyond repair and to keep it any longer is pure suffering, both for it and for the poor audience members that feel forced to finish it. 

Honestly, I've never been so pissed off by an extension before. Don't advertise something as 20 episodes, then out of the blue give us a string of unqualified story-draggers (and detractors) to prolong the angst, pain and stupidity. So, so, soooo idiotic, every controversy plays out as if it had been written by a 10-year-old. Everything is predictable, nothing is original, and characters have no inner depth except for a secret mean streak.

Material Queen: In-Progress Review


Material Queen has aired 14 of its planned 20 episodes so far, and this is probably the show that I've had the most conflicted reaction to. I love the heroine but hate the male lead, the plot is predictable yet oddly addicting, and it makes me so frustrated that I want to keep watching.
