I have heard of Death Note the series many times. But this is my first time watching it because it has piqued my interest while I was extremely bored on the plane. I mean… why not, I have nothing to lose. I was worried though whether I would be able to pick up the show without having knowledge of the series. Thankfully they made Death Note easily to understand with the narration and slight flashbacks. It was great!
Medical drama is not my cup of tea. It’s not just the technical terms or the sight of blood that threw me off, but it also needs to be done in a fast pace manner. I don’t know, perhaps because I loved ER so much that any medical dramas that do not have the sense of urgency, I became bored of it. A Life is boring to me. I wanted an overwhelming and intense feeling when I watch the show and I do not get it with A Life. Granted the show focuses on surgeons at work and not the emergency room, I still find the pacing too damn slow *rolls eyes*.
