STORY: The description above sums it up but I have to say that Season 2 was spectacular. It beat all my expectations. The first half of the season was a solid 10. The writing was so damn good. The second half slowed down so I'd give it an 8. Each episode focuses on one of the cast, but does have side scenes of the other members. The episodes of Win and Phu were especially good. Phai's episode stunned me, it was shocking; I don't think I could ever watch that episode again...ever. One thing that bugged me was that all of the relationships were harmed by one of the partners still being in love with an ex. Why was this theme so overused?? It would have been nice if at least one couple had a healthy and stable relationship where one wasn't still in love with some old flame. As far as the LGBT themes, there is a girl couple and a guy couple, but not enough screen time was devoted to this topic, and it wasn't presented in a positive way; realistic maybe, but why can't a gay couple be happy? ACTING/CAST: I liked all the cast but not all the characters. (I wasn't really all that fond of Sprite or Phai, even though the actress playing Sprite is amazingly cute.) Some are better than others and some have one-dimensional presentations or flat performances. Also, missed opportunity for this show, but dammit I wanted MORE POP! He was a great character that was underused! MUSIC: I am always impressed with Thai drama music. This was no exception. There's a ton of great music here and many original songs. It's apparent some of the cast are also musicians. REWATCH VALUE: I don't know if I'll watch it all a second time, but I might rewatch the episodes of Win and Phu. OVERALL: This season rocked. The Movie was slow, Season 1 was OK, but Season 2 knocked it out of the ballpark. Again, first half was better but as a whole it was worth it.
