Say “I Love You” #01 — Misplaced Bassoons

October 6th, 2012


Was it budget saver day at the orchestra?

Code Breaker’s going to be a little delayed. It airs extremely late compared to most things and I have some Aroduc Stufftm I need to go off and do.


Yawn. Nothing special here. ‘Nothing’ is also a very good way to describe the scoring of the episode. When the music was there, it wasn’t much of an improvement. Nothing says grumpy teenage angst quite like a bassoon. ‘Nothing’ is probably a fairly accurate definition of the show’s budget. Way to beat out Little Busters for the title of cheapest Saturday show. Direction was boring as sin too. You’d think they’d at least try to play up the stalker scene, but nah. One stock sound effect is enough apparently. I don’t even know what the hell they were doing during the kiss. She flashed back to kicking him and her cat meowing? What is that even supposed to mean?

Everything else was the standard cliches already seen a thousand times. This is the second type of heroine these romances get, the helpless picked-on social outcast instead of the spunky independent. She wasn’t winning any points anyway by glaring and being a bitch when someone tried to apologize for bumping into her anyway. And she can only become complete thanks to the super popular boy, also without any discernable defining traits besides being popular, who has become mysteriously attracted to her at first sight. Hooray for the power of the penis. Someone should really learn to harness it for the good of women everywhere. He’s not even a vampire or werewolf either. What the hell?

  • Baby Choo Choo says:

    Meh, I can be a bit of a sucker for the occasional romance show. I enjoyed it even as cliche-ridden as it was (and dear sweet baby jesus it filled with cliches).

    I feel confident in saying if the first episode is indicative of the direction of this show, I’ll probably forget it even existed a month after this season ends, but I could see myself sitting down to watch this every week.

  • The Phantom says:

    “Yawn” is the exact word that describes this show.
