It was two dramas for the month of September. I went for crime shows this time, and they were both decent watches. It was the sci-fi crime thriller Train and the murder mystery CHIP-IN that I got in:
Well, Train ended up being a mixed bag for me. There were things I liked and things I didn’t like. The positives were that I liked the overarching mystery thriller story, the sci-fi parallel worlds concept, and Yoon Shi Yoon gave a wonderful performance like he always does.
The main negative was the drama’s investigative style of storytelling, particularly in the first half, which really wasn’t to my tastes resulting in a bit of boredom. The drama gains momentum as it goes though and gets better in the second half. It had enough going for it that I’m glad I did stick around for it. (Train Review)
CHIP-IN is a classic Agatha Christie style who-did-it murder mystery. It has a straight-forward set-up with a family with a whole lot of issues coming together for a birthday dinner for the head of the family. Then there’s a murder and an investigation ensues.
It doesn’t do anything revolutionary, but it executes things fairly well. A simple murder does blossom into a much more intricate story as the drama progresses. The characters weren’t particularly likable, and this was not a drama that had me anxiously awaiting to go on to the next episode, but it still held my interest for the most part. Overall, it presented a decent murder mystery story. (CHIP-IN Review)
So how was September for you?
Happy drama watching to everyone!
