And playing seemingly the same type of character again. What is her agency thinking? Crazy She can't play this kind of role that many more times.

But I am a sucker for dramas about siblings, so I will try this one out too.

Ugh, I was just thinking the same thing. When I was adding this drama I got really excited to see Joe... but I think I'll skip this one.

It's called "lacking dimension."

You can refer to the Sosuke character in Last Friends as a reference.

Do I ever skip anything? I'm going to watch it. I will probably hate it. I cannot stand Nagasawa Masami, like many of you, but I've liked Odagiri Joe in what I've seen him in. Sigh...why did it have to be her?

Wow, what a turn of development at the end of Episode 1! I didn't think I'll watch Ep2 until that ending. Now, I want to know the reason behind the happening at the end. So I need to watch Ep2 Sweat

It's pretty good, I have to say. I'm getting more and more used to Nagasawa, although I couldn't stand her in the past.

seeing everyone's comments about nagasawa made me LOL.. actually I too dragged watching this drama, and I almost fell asleep during the show, until the ending of episode 1 caught me.

anyway from what i saw in episode 1, the focus seemed more on odagiri joe's character rather than nagasawa.. so yep.. can give it a try, she didn't have too much screen time in episode 1 anyway.

Okay, I've plunged into this one. I don't think Nagasawa is going to be the problem here, in fact, she's not doing too bad. This script has the potential to be a real cliche-laden minefield, though. And of course, anytime you get Odagiri Joe, you know you're gonna get, , ,

Yup, all those people making cracks about Nagasawa may have to eat their words. She's very good in this.

Okay, I finished this one and thought I'd never be saying this but Nagasawa was very good!! If this was the first time I'd ever seen her, I'd be saying, "I wonder what she can do if given a decent script."

Speaking of script, this was a total mishmash. Started out as a crime/mystery drama, then went off on the old "big brother hates little sisters boyfriend" tangent and wound up with "city doctor finds happiness at country clinic". Geez, what a mess.

I was looking at a friends pics from japan and I found one that was of a trail station. I really feel like I have seen it before and this is the only show I can think of. I looked quickly through the episodes but couldn't find it. Could someone tell me what episode and a timestamp would be best they go to a train station. tyvm
