I know, I know, but I couldn't resist! It was fun watching all the gulag prisoners take their revenge on their tormentors! And I know that it's all historic fantasy but it was a great scene. I thought that the traps were ingenious and watching the bad guys get a taste of their own medicine was satisfying. To see the fear on their faces as they discovered that the entire mountain was baited with traps was priceless. ;D
I used to think that my Girl Scouts were pretty good in lashing wood and long grass together to make furnishings for our camp, but DJY's guys would put all of my girls to shame. Maybe it's because we never had bamboo to work with. Tee=hee
Thank you, teacher, for alluding to this! That whole situation was just ridiculous. Could you believe the camp that the prisoners built? Give me a break. At least a half-dozen buildings, including a headquarters with a conference table and finished walls on the inside, with watchtowers, neatly manicured grounds, and ornamental stone walls and fencing. Along with lots of good-quality rope, and I even saw a bucket! All that was IN ADDITION TO the booby traps, enough to kill massive numbers of soldiers on all three paths. All made by 100 underfed and exhausted prisoners, in one day!
This is why the show drives me crazy. Why do they keep creating situations that are so absurd? They might as well have brought in Tinkerbell and Glinda the Good Witch to wave their magic wands. I mean, I'm not asking for perfect historical accuracy here (like that didn't go out the window a long time ago), but how about putting enough effort into the writing to make everything at least remotely plausible.
But with that aside, there certainly were plenty of great scenes in #75 and #76. Having to solve the problem of how to go from hunted to hunters, great stuff.

I didn't get the impression that all of that occurred in one day. Sometimes the show does take on an unreal, cartoon air---it reminds me of the original Conan the Barbarian. But I like it though. It's fun escapism.
It's fun escapism - YES BungalowDweller, and it's GREAT escapism. I know this could never happen but at the end of the day, I really am thoroughly entertained . I loved MON and TU episodes... if I'm looking for a sincere attempt at telling the truth I'll watch PBS.

geema Your hands are so pretty. Your cheeks are so pretty." Eunha answers back to Andrea, "You are pretty all over".
I thought the whole point was that there wouldn't be any hunting at night, the Tangs were afraid of the dark.
Yet they all continuously sat around on their Tangasses gloating in their quarters throughout the daylight hours at how gloriously easy this would be, (allowing DJ and his troops to work in the luxury of sunlight when theoretically they should have been under attack) and then set upon the mountain at dusk so that they had to descend before dark!
And Li Wen became a General how?? I guess he was absent from "Tactics 101" that day.
