139. Blood 블러드 (2015) Korean

Ahn Jae Hyun, Ku Hye Sun, Ji Jin Hee

Drama Rating: 1/10     Neck Score: A

This show in a nutshell: 18 episodes of nothing really happening but lame stupidness and bad acting, and then everything you absolutely didn't want to happen being crammed into the last two episodes for a finale that is so epically and ridiculously bad that you are extra angry that you just wasted 20 hours of your life only to see everything you actually liked okay destroyed and ruined for forever.  This show took itself way too seriously, and was not only badly written, but also very, very badly acted. Well, maybe it was just Fish Face (Ku Hye Sun) who was actually bad at acting.  Everyone else just wasn't as good as they typically are because the script was so bad.  I think that Ahn Jae Hyun was just not ready for a lead role quite yet, especially one so demanding as a badly written vampire surgeon.  I used to play this game while watching where I imagined how different a scene would be if Jung Il Woo were actually playing the role.  It was different, but not any better, because even he couldn't save Night Watchman, so... but it was still a fun game.  But really, this show doesn't even make sense.  No one behaves in a remotely logical way, and they literally break every ethical code ever.  And not just the evil vampires, like the people who should know better too.  And where the heck did all the normal doctors go to?  They literally disappeared from view in the second half of the show.  Did they fire everyone who wasn't absolutely necessary to the plot to save money when they still were having crappy ratings and hence no extra sponsorship funds or something?  I'd believe it, because that is really how bad this show was.  I wouldn't have been sad either, if I were one of the fired secondary characters.  They had sense to jump ship and get cast in something better, I hope.  Whew, this was just so bad.  It might have started as good bad, but it was definitely just bad bad bad by the end.  The one thing that could have saved it was maybe killing everyone (as in the lead dude), but they didn't even do that.  They had to mess it up with an ambiguously (hopeful?) open ended mess.  Basically, this show is What.the.heck/crap/lame.
