Sandra,

I second your thoughts on the pace too!
It's toooooo slow for my liking.
I was excitedly sitting down to watch Episode 3 just to realise "WHAT?! IT'S GOING TO STRETCH TO THE NEXT EPISODE AGAIN?!" *argh* TOO SLOW!!! Surely they don't need to keep on dragging more than half of the episode on how the terrorists try to control the hostages in the hospital right?

OMG... this is the only drama I'm watching faithfully this season but it's so slow.... faint.gif I'm sure I'll throw eggs at them if they end off the last episode abruptly or what.

On another note, I'm really surprised when I was watching Mezamashi TV the other day and they said Junichi is the one who is choreographing the fighting action moves. *wohh~~*

The subbed version of SP ep 1 is out !
http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/viewtopic_55433.htm

I've watched ep. 4 last night. I don't think truly they should have given away all the action scenes in the ending credits of ep 3. It was like....eh? that's all there is to it?

Now, I just hope that his immediate supervisor Shinichi is the killer of his parents and not only does Junichi find out but pls let Shinichi hide it as much as possible and in the end, give them a cat and mouse chase. Otherwise this story would be too plain, too plain.

For 4 episodes, Shinichi is just walking around saying a few things here and there being totally under utilized.

If this drama is supposed to be serious, then make it more serious with more malice. If this drama is supposed to be funny, put more funny lines in.

It's neither here nor there.

It's not funny like Bayside Shakedown and Hero nor serious like Saimen or Proof of Men.

It's very hard to take it seriously.

I know my complaints are driving all the readers away but those are my thoughts. If I don't post them, you won't see how I feel about this drama.

We need conflict and wholehearted striving asap or else it really drags.

That's why Infernal Affairs is such a great movie because there is internal conflict, turmoil, wholehearted striving and the audience is on the edge hoping to see every small action of Tony Leung and Andy Lau and the cause and effect.

That's why in Time of Dog and Wolf, we are on the edge of the seat because every moment, Lee Jun Ki as the mole could be revealed and get killed.

That's why in the Lobbyists, the latest Korean drama by Song Il Gook, you are still kind of glued to it because you see Song Il Gook, the right hand man to the mafia is constantly striving to get ahead and yet beaten up at every job, and the female star is striving to revenge for his father and every step she is thwarted. That striving is very important.

Excuse me for the lack of comments on this thread. I have not been watching this drama since episode 4. I will probably pick it up when the English subs come out.

But here is some news about it. Obviously, I must be one of the odd ones who don't like this drama. laugh.gif

It looks like the subbers are not progressing on the English subs for this drama. They are looking for translators.

Does anyone here need any English synopsis, or is it pretty evident so far? Let me know. I have the Chinese copy and so I could do the synopsis and key conversations if anyone need them.

Edit: No need. They seem to be back on track now.

"SP" drama gets prime time special
Wed, January 23, 2008 (3:41pm EST)
Fuji TV's Saturday night drama series "SP" will be transformed into a one-shot special on April 5, airing at 9:00pm. The series ends its 11-episode run this week, but so far, it has averaged 15.0% ratings despite its late time slot (11:10pm-11:55pm).

The action drama is scripted by Kazuki Kaneshiro ("GO") and directed by Katsuyuki Motohiro ("Odoru Daisousasen"). It stars Junichi Okada, Shinichi Tsutsumi, and Yoko Maki as special police bodyguards.

According to producer Ichiro Takai, the special episode will cover the original 11-episode series, but it will be re-edited and the timeline will be rearranged. It will also reveal a "secret" that is left undisclosed in the original, leading to some additional scenes that have already been filmed. Takai hopes the new version will appeal both to first-time viewers and the show's regular audience.
