My First Time

Posted by Stephanie on March 14, 2016



This is it guys. And I’m not sure how to feel. Or I should say, I’m feeling all the feels and all of them at war with each other. What’s going down? In a matter of moments I’m headed off to finish the last episodes of Signal.

And, while I’m not ready for it to end, I’m also nervous about what these episodes hold. 

So how is this my first time? Yes, yes I’ve simulcasted a few shows before. A very few. Actually, I think I can count the amount of times I’ve simulcasted on one hand besides this. Village, Master’s Sun, Hidden IdentityA Clinic On The Sea, and The Lover (okay so it’s a hand with an extra finger). All for me meh dramas. Or at least dramas that, by the end, I wasn’t very excited about.

Signal will be the first show that I have actively loved straight through. A show that, if these episodes go the way I hope they will, will take it’s place proudly amongst my all time favorite dramas. Throughout watching Signal, I’ve waited, I’ve waited for that moment for it to flub up. You see, that’s happened to me before. Padam Padam, In A Good Way shows I loved with big fluffy hearts only for them to take big dives at the end. So I was prepared for this to happen with Signal. Prepared and yet, with every episode I’d chant, please be good, please be good, please be good. While every episode hasn’t been off the charts stellar, overall, it is a well crafted, well acted, cracktastic show.

It’s gotten to the point where, before watching with Jacqueline, I actually don’t want to watch the show because I don’t want to see it fail. But here I am. 2 episodes to go. 2 of the very last episodes to go. There will be no more waiting, there will be no more watching every episode on the projector chanting ‘I love this show, God I love this show, I love this show.”

There can be no more delay at watching though can there. I’ve been lucky. Years and years, I’ve honed my ninja skills, usually using them to dodge people I know in the grocery store. This weekend though? I’ve used them to avoid any sort of spoilers for the ending. There have been some close calls, some very close calls, but as a testament to my bad ass skills, I managed. However my skills can’t hold out forever. Not to mention I need to see what happens.

So here I go, to watch the conculsion of my very first non-hatewatch simulcast. And I don’t want to goooooo.


(I even used a picture I made for one of the chats because I didn’t want to chance seeing a spoiler looking for a graphic.)

    Opinions divided about the ending, but I loved it. I think it answered most of the questions, at least one baddy meat a hefty dose of justice and our heroes got a resolution to their stories that was logical and in character. As you can see, I tried to stay vague to avoid spoilers.
