Ode to Joy 2 – Final Impressions

Not much has changed from my initial impressions in this second season of the story, except to say that the addition of sexy VP Bao as Andie’s love interest was a success in terms of casting and compatibility. Giving Guan Guan a chance to blossom was enjoyable, and the relationship between ‘Flirty Zhao’ and Qu Xiao Xiao was even more so. But I still find the actress who plays Ying Ying annoying as hell in her interpretation (please god don’t tell me people think that kind of behavior is cute!), and I really wanted to slap Sheng Mei more than once before she wised up.

Season 3 is already underway, and this time I’m hoping they work Jin Dong more into the story! I know he’s really just a supporting cast member, but let’s change that, okay?

If you saw season 1 and are curious how the story continues, give this a look. If you didn’t, know that it doesn’t spend all that much time on filling in the backstory, which might be a good thing (if it means you spend less time on Ying Ying). Otherwise, you could get the gist of things in a sketchy fashion and just pick up new if only to enjoy Big Bad Bao.
