1. my first jdorama! [Rating: 10/10]
i saw My Father is a Newscaster on TV more than 10 years ago and it has been one of my all time favorites ever since. it was also the first time i got to see Masakazu Tamura give a great performance as the playboy newscaster Kagami Ryutaro. Very funny and heartwarming throughout.

In all japanese family dorama even in the best one they try to deliever a message and lecture the children. Tho "morale" is very present. But never in this one! I can't believe this dorama was broadcast in 1987!! It's much more modern that the new ones! This one has great actor, great humour (the sentence that Tamura uses when he pickes up girl, in all languages is just too funny!). Thi dorama doesn't have and end specially it starts in a mess and ends in a mess. Even the specials of the dorama are good! Excellent.

I actually was watching this when it was playing in Japan, real time. Only watched it because Koizumi Kyoko was in it, who I was a real fan. Tamura Masakazu was like the hot leading men then..NEVER understood it. It was okay and probably unbearable to watch now.
