Oh groink, groink, groink... Everyone must look at the context of the situation.... And believe me, many TV show producers would like to draw some blood from this organization. I'm just wondering, who? Second, it is the popularity of SMAP. Kusanagi-san may not bring in good ratings for his drama app...

I totally agree with every single post that Groink has written in this topic. Instead of people bashing on Hollywood (which really offends me but doesn't matter anyways because it's not about me :)) people need to STAY on topic.

What J-Drama would you like to see Hollywood try to remake? None at all. Hollywood can and will break any original concept, then disfigure it with cheap plots and clichés after the first season.

He doesn't necessarily pick challenging scripts, but he's smart about trying to keep himself bankabl...

Yamashita Tomohisa -- Plays more or less the same guy all the time. Fujiki Naohito -- Always plays the handsome guy. I guess that annoys me. Jinnai Takanori -- :al...

Elisha Cuthbert comes off more quirky and haggard; her character is still a drunk in the beginning. The character, Charlie B...

Attack #1 is a new bad drama for me. The strict coach with the fake beard was just silly. It seemed overdramatic at some points and tried to be as good as Ace wo nerae. Only thing I liked about Attack #1 was Ayana Sakai and the opening of the series :lol Also, Ace wo nerae got wrapped up too early. ...

Maria - I like Maki Goto but wtf was that about.
Pride - Didnt care about the story.
Hero - Overall a waste.
Tokyo Wankei - I like Nakama Yukie but this was bad.
Forbidden Love (Majo no jouken) - Badly written, but not badly acted.
