July 2015 Recap
Upon request I am starting this new thing and y’all can let me know what improvements I can make on it! Basically I’ll be doing a review on the episodes of this month. It will be more about my opinion of the eps than listing which guests were on, etc.
Disclaimer: These are just my opinions. You are free to express your opinion in the comments but please be respectful. Thank you!
Ep 254- Welcome to the World of Girl’s Generation
Some members of SNSD are just naturally better at variety than others. I really felt like the members were pulling a lot of the weight throughout the episode. I loved the video game concept of this episode though; I just think it might’ve worked better with different guests?? The Tetris mission was probably my favorite part since that’s when the SNSD members seemed to be trying their hardest. As for the last mission, I’m pretty neutral about it. It was cool seeing the SNSD members figuring out the puzzle, but it was pretty heavily scripted for Yoona to win. Also the chasers were pretty much impossible to avoid. I guess overall I feel this episode was biased and I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to rewatch it.
Ep 255- The Queen of Early Summer Race
The female guests in this episode were really fun! They all had really good personalities and worked well with the members (no awkwardness). The sushi bowl mission was hilarious. Then again, I always like it when they have dance parties. The last part with the water park wasn’t as good though. I felt like it was kinda just each group doing their own thing; furthermore, the point system was really difficult to understand. I guess the ending of this episode was very anticlimactic?
Ep 256- Come Over to My Place
I always love seeing 2pm on RM because they bring so much energy, and it’s even better when almost all of them are on! The concept for this episode was really sweet. I love when they visit fans (although I kinda wish they had visited a random fan instead). The name tag ripping mission in this ep was not very well done. It was fun seeing them on the see-saw and it would’ve been much more effective if they’d done something that wasn’t name tag ripping. The basketball mission was difficult enough that it was suspenseful yet doable. And of course the mud mission was hilarious. It was so funny how JSJ kept choosing scissor and kept losing! Also YJS’s plastic yellow fashion was great. Overall this ep focused more on the interactions between members/guests rather than the suspense (since each mission was more fun than suspenseful).
Ep 257- The Battle of Heros
I had pretty mixed feeling about this episode. The first half was kinda boring. It felt very rushed since they needed to fit so many different missions into so little time. However, I really liked the name tag ripping half! It was awesome to see how each team utilized their superpowers and I really couldn’t predict who was going to come out on top. To sum it up, the first part of the ep kinda dragged but the second really kept my attention and I just had to watch to the end.
Quite frankly this month’s episodes were all just okay. If I had to pick a favorite it would be ep 257 since the guests interacted well with the members and the name tag ripping section was very suspenseful.
