What is her name, anyway? I'm having a hard time learning anyone's name. I think it may be Eunji, though. Of course, I'm referring to the one who's making the pharmacist's life hell. I can't stand to see one character let another one get away with pushing him around so much. But, in her defense, if she was raised in the same home with (or, apparently, under the tutelage of) that brute Brutus, you can see why she's such a bully.
Now, who here can help me remember something I could swear I heard on this week's (6/24 and /25) episodes that left me shocked and offended? One of the male characters talked about spending money on a date and buying her drinks but then having her wake up before he could get his money's worth because someone made too much noise? I believe he was using it as a simile to something else.
The way he said it so casually made me sick. Dude, if that's what you do on your dates, you're a rapist. And it is really not funny or cute to have a character say that and get away with it.
MTPS just started on my satellite station last weekend (replacing “My Precious You”). And, since I’m only now up to episode #4, I’m guessing that I’m about two episodes behind Chicago.
I kind of liked the female attorney in the first episode (where she was sparring with that jerky Lee Pilmo character) but her viciousness towards the nice-guy pharmacist is extremely irritating.
Actually, I’m not loving this show as much as I initially thought I would - mainly because practically every one of the characters is too jerky, too despicable, or just plain too weird to develop much affection for. The only exceptions I can see are the pharmacist, and maybe Lee Pilmo’s unappreciated nurse.
I didn’t catch the “not getting his money’s worth” comment, but perhaps it comes up for me in the next episode or two. From your description, though, it does seem vulgar and out-of-place in a show that's intended as a light comedy.
Thanks, mikey. I hope you do catch it; I'm beginning to think I dreamed it. But if it wasn't in this drama, it was probably in another. I had trouble sleeping one night last week and saw the rerun of another show whose name I can't remember.
Yes, the characters do come on very strong. It's a little hard to take. I'm waiting to see if the show turns out to be as funny as it thinks it is. :-\
I wonder! Maybe they really like scenes of people chasing each other around with brooms, yelling at each other, and hitting each other. Even just the mugging is getting on my nerves. But, to any Philly folks here, we love ya--and maybe you could tell us if the show gets better as it goes along?
I cannot believe how much that mother beats her boys. I had 5 children and while there were spankings and groundings, never did I BEAT them up. It seems that she can't even talk to her "boys" without screaming and berating them.
I much prefered her as the ditzy mother in "The Chill Sisters".
I think there may be a culture difference happening here.I believe she beats them LIGHTLY out of affection rather than any thing else.I don't know of many American families who do much more than spankings and groundings.Anyway,I'm sure it's a lot less painful than it looks.In Korean dramas,even grown up daughters get those slaps on the arm,now and again,from their moms.There's absolutely no intent to injure the children!!Please note that the kids DON"T hit back.Unlike in the States,kids have been known to hit their parents back.
