When a Snail Falls in Love 如果蜗牛有爱情 - Episode 19 (Recap)

Image
kakashi: Gestures of love are made and one of the main villains is identified. We are close to the end, but everything seems open. It's a nailbiter.
Eleanor: Wait, wow it really is close to the end and yeah, so many loose ends. But I'm going to take a minute here and just pretend that's me with Ji Bai. 
Trotwood: I'll pretend, too, with me taking the picture.
JoAnne: As long as you're already set up with the camera, will you pretend one of me too? With Ji Bai, I mean.

Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms 三生三世十里桃花 - Episode 37 (Recap)

Image
kakashi: Poor Ye Hua. There is not much of that eager puppy enthusiasm left ... okay, scratch that. He is still very eager, but Bai Qian isn't, or at least, she is making him doubt everything about him and her. It's a new phase of heartache for our Crown Prince brought on by her panicked rejection of his deep feelings. It hurts.
JoAnne: Not as much as having your eyes plucked out though, I bet.

Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms 三生三世十里桃花 - Episode 36 (Recap)

Image
kakashi: This episode is a complete dud in the beginning (mortal Dijun, bleh) and kicks major ass in the end. Bai Qian is fierce when she protects what she loves. I adore her.
JoAnne: I love that an innocuous little hand-held fan kicks ass, too.

Ice Fantasy 幻城 - FINAL Episode 62 (Recap)

Image
kakashi: We did it, my friends! We're at the end! We are still alive! Can't say as much about most of the Ice Fantasy characters, but that couldn't be helped. Millions of fans hated the ending, but I totally love it.
SakiVI: I was sad at the ending. I was also annoyed. I'll explain why below.
JoAnne: I am so looking forward to this!

Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms 三生三世十里桃花 - Episode 35 (Recap)

Image
kakashi: There are a lot of things in this episode that I don't get and that don't add up, but I think that's due to some very bad cutting and editing. Maybe the main editor was sick? Anyway, apart from some Ye Hua snuggling, it's a failure. 
JoAnne: I think Ye Hua snuggles can cover up a lot of sins, though, so I won't complain too much.

Ice Fantasy 幻城 - Episode 61 (Recap)

Image
kakashi: I can't with this show. I particularly like the zombies we get to see in this episode though! And that's a lot, coming from me, because I abhor zombies!
SakiVI: Oh, were there zombies?  Hard to tell with this lot.
JoAnne: Ooooh, I like zombies!

Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms 三生三世十里桃花 - Episode 34 (Recap)

Image
kakashi: Can't say I particularly like the next two episodes, when our Bai Qian's storyline intersects with mortal Dijun's storyline. Because I don't like the mortal Dijun storyline. The episode is saved for me due to some Xuan Nu craziness.
JoAnne: I can't say that I really like the Dijun mortal storyline either - but you're right, Xuan Nu is often enough to save the day. Isn't it funny how we can enjoy her crazy but we despise Su Jin?
The recap is officially saved because of JoAnne. Watch out for the Lotus-comment.
