Certified Off the Rails

February 18, 2019

If you ever wanted to know how we were outside of the podcast, this episode really shows how crazy we are. No real topic, so we decided to talk generally about a number of things including what we are watching, more discussion on Romance is a Bonus Book and Touch Your Heart, upcoming things...and then it basically spirals from there.

There are some minor spoilers, so I added when we talk about them in the time codes. It really isn't anything big, so even if you haven't watched those things it won't ruin it for you.

Next week we'll be back to normal. Maybe.

Certified Romcoms

February 11, 2019

Love...true love...

It's that time of the year, friends, and to keep up with the holiday we decided to dedicate an episode to (almost) everyone's favorite genre: the romcom. We discuss what we personally think makes a romcom, and give you some of our top picks for ones to watch. We also talk about the first four episodes of Romance is a Bonus Book and the first two episodes of Touch Your Heart.

During the general talk, we keep it mostly spoiler free sans a few plot points that won't ruin the show (the are from older dramas) but we do talk extensively about the two newest dramas so beware of spoilers in them.

You can find the clip of the press conference for Romance is a Bonus Book here.

We also have a romcom list started over on our MyDramaList to help you out!

Certified Spoilers: Twelve Nights

January 28, 2019

We're down a member today, so we figured it was the perfect time, on this our 12th episode, to do a deep-dive/spoiler-filled episode about the drama Twelve Nights which is the first show we talked about on this podcast.

Although this is a super spoiler filled episode, you can listen from 1:07:40 to hear our end wrap up that doesn't spoil anything, but does convey how we felt about the show.

Go cheer Natalia up by stopping by her Patreon, or maybe check out her new Society6 shop!

Certified Down to Clown

January 14, 2019

It's been a slower week for us between life and sickness so here's a nice smallish episode to listen to. This week we talk about what we are watching and discuss the first episode of the new sageuk drama, The Crowned Clown and discuss clowns and court jesters in general, as well as play a fun game.

We only discuss the first episode of the series in this one, so don't worry about any spoilers except for things in that episode!

Editing note: Hi, it's Jessie. My audio did that weird thing again, so for headphone users I apologize. Pretend we were talking on the phone and I just went into a weird tunnel for a bit. We're not perfect around these parts, but I still feel bad that it happened.

Certified Music: Big Bang

January 7, 2019

Happy 2019! It's the first of our monthly music episodes and we decided to pick a collective favorite of ours: Big Bang!

We first give a refresher on how we came to kpop and our respective fandoms (living that #multifandom life), and play a fun game. Then we dive into Big Bang, telling our favorite songs, variety show appearances, and discuss the group as a whole.

We mentioned a ton of videos, so we decided a YouTube playlist was for the best: http://bit.ly/2FbYgjw

Certified Holiday Spirit

December 14, 2018

It's our Christmas extravaganza episode! What better way to celebrate the holidays than to hang out with your sisters talking about random kdramas to get you into the festive mood.

Dramaland doesn't have many Christmas specific shows, so we decided to create our own and recast the classic movie White Christmas and our individual holiday favorites. We also watched the first episode of the very-much-not-holiday-themed drama special, White Christmas and discuss what we thought of it (no spoilers!).

Time codes will be posted later tonight.
