Recapped!: My Mister (Episodes 10-12)

SPOILERALERT

Alright so after another handful of episodes, My Mister continues to stand the test of time! The story of Dong-Hoon and  Ji-Ahn continues to delve further and further into a singular one, albeit with shared friends and foes alike. Here’s a breakdown of really the biggest revelation we need to know:

  1.  At this point in the story: PRETTY MUCH EVERYONE KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY EXCEPT DONG-HOON’s BROTHERS AND MOM!
  2. Dong-Hong’s fight with Ki-Yong ended in a draw (more or less) but it made Ki-Yong think twice about confronting Dong-Hong directly.
  3. Dong-Hong and his wife FINALLY sit down and try to talk things out. It doesn’t seem to go horribly well though, as they still seem bent on divorce.
  4. Ji-Ahn, on Dong-Hong’s insistence, has begone to integrate with her co-workers and Dong-Hong’s family as well at Jung-hee’s bar. It’s really a joy to see her really get to be a human and not a cold, calculating swindler.
  5. The race for new director really took a strong turn after Dong-Hoon PUNCHED THE CEO IN THE FACE!

We won’t get episodes 13 and 14 for a whole nother’ week which hurt me a lot more than I’m willing to admit! It does give me a chance to seek out other shows and movies to digest though!

 

Kevin Hart: What Now?

Directed by Tim Story, Lesie Small

In Philadelphia,  50,000 spectators were treated to a pretty solid stand-up routine from superstar comedian Kevin Hart. The special had a little something for everyone, and is somewhere between Steve Harvey and Katt Williams. Very family-centered, with plenty of silly, anecdotal gags sprinkled throughout.

So we get a Philly-cheese steaked addition of Hart’s latest stand-up. It comes sandwich between to silly, action packed skits—where we see Hart and co-star Halle Berry (looking fantastic!) In a James Bond-styled setting. Kevin the agent, Berry his sexy partner, and even Don Cheadle makes an appearance at the standard poker playing scene. It’s a silly affair, and provides plenty of chuckles and the occasional hardy laugh. 

That’s also how I felt about the meat and potatoes of this comedy special as well–it was a mostly silly affair that kept me entertained, but never brought the house down. Again, lots of observational comedy about his wife, kids, other friends and family plus insight on some of his more irrational fears.

Funny, but Kevin plays it pretty safe and there were times when the audience I was with was quiet even as Kevin delivered several predictable punchlines or drubbed up another gag from twenty minutes earlier in the routine. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it was definitely noticeable. Not sure you’ll wanna spend eleven bucks to see it–but you should see it. There is something to say about seeing people of all walks of life coming together to laugh. Hart himself astutely points out that, “If we can laugh together, we can live together”. I’ll definitely agree that comedy has a way of bringing together the masses for a night of entertainment; and  Kevin Hart’s ‘What Now?’ does just that.
