Storyline

Taekwondo empire boss Joseph Chang's intransigence over a prenuptial demanded from daughter Julie, Kate's youth buddy, and her 'common' fiancé, artist Eric Malloy, clearly stems from deeper. Kate wants to help the love-birds, but seems to ruin the match by finding out Eric pretended his demented mother were dead, yet plays his scorned design skills. The money trail suggests David Smith stole, tainting dad's inheritance, so Kate burns it. Written by KGF Vissers

points in favor far outweighed by dull approach

This episode has going for it Kim the sandwich girl, she is just cute and charming and did I say cute? And series lead Sarah Shahi is again in fine form, no denying that. So my rating goes up from the dismal 5 I gave the previous one.

But Clyde Kusatsu... Overused Asian actor with patently obvious limitations when it comes to more than just basic acting. And as a Tae Kwan Do master? Clyde?? Surely they could have found some other Asian dude to play the overly protective Korean father, one who had more attitude, and at least lived up a bit to the character he is supposed to portray?

Truth be told, I like this episode even less than those that have gone before, but glamour-wise, it's up to the usual standard, which the previous one (except for its welcome return of Kim the sandwich girl) just wasn't. But it's incurably bland. Compared to the (usually) more upbeat stuff I collect.

Lots of people would find it to be a decent show, high quality, many would love it. I am NOT knocking it saying it is mediocre. It's not. I am saying it lacks the zing and the sparkle and the buzz that was needed to launch it into popularity. Like, the pretty lead is a great start. But look at the other characters. Leo and Lauren and that cap-wearing pram-pushing lame brother in the earlier episodes. See what I mean?

The basic set-up was surely workable, but the magic ingredient to put some pulse into it, is quite obviously far beyond its reach.

Sarah Shahi deserved better. Not that this couldn't have been it. But it is not.

Love the leggy box-covers. Disappointed by show.
