This has been a difficult drama year for me. I’ve struggled watching dramas and struggled even more trying to write about them. Which is why the “cold winds of no content” has been blowing through this blog for most of the year. The state of the world has probably had something to do with how things stand but mostly I believe it’s just overall, persistent drama fatigue. Which is why I’m probably going to take some time off from the blog and dramas, as both have sort of started to feel like a chore, something I have to do insted of something I enjoy doing. I may still keep tabs at what my blogging pals are doing and even comment if the mood strikes. 🙂
As things are, I haven’t watched much this year and even dramas I enjoyd a lot didn’t manage to pull me out of the “drama lethargy” long enough for me to write about them. I had fleeting thoughts and half realised ideas of many but those never turned into actual posts. It just felt like too big an undertaking. Sigh. Looking back, I’m having a hard time even remembering what I actually did watch but I think the dramas that made the most impact were all about groups of people working towards common goal and helping each other out.
My favorite drama of 2020 is without doubt Ancient Detective. It may not be as “grand” as many others and flew under the radar for most but it’s the one that still makes me all warm and fuzzy when I think about it. There was just something about it that resonated with me the way most dramas don’t any more. It made me happy and I loved our ancient seluthing team. Besides, my eyes were blessed as it looks so good. 😀
So many dramas were put on hold when my interest waned, never to be picked up again and I did drop several when I realised I didn’t really enjoy them or they weren’t up to my alley after all.
So, following are the dramas I did finish and all had something going for them. I wish I had enough incentive to write about FoS as it was really, really good but I every time I try I find I don’t have anything intelligent to say. Maybe one day.
