On The Air: 3 Days

Posted: 27 May 2014 09:00 AM PDT

I CAUGHT 3 Days for three reasons: Park Yoochun, Park Yoochun, Park Yoochun. There, I said it.

After watching the 16-episode series that centres on an elite presidential guard, it has not convinced me to become a fan of action thrillers.

It stars the good-looking triple threat; as a member of the South Korean boyband JYJ, Park sings, dances and acts (quadruple threat, if you count knitting. He knits!).

The show is redolent of the real-time format of the successful Hollywood TV series 24 is rather confusing and devoid of humour and romance. What it has are endless car chases, gun fights and gratuitous killings, but lacking in character development.

The main culprit, portrayed by Choi Won-young, is a mercenary, warmongering Dr Strangelove. It gets tiresome watching his murderous bids.

All said, however, I still find Park a competent actor with an improved range in his acting. Can I say it again? He is smokin' hot! — Looi Lai Yee

3 Days airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 8.55pm on One HD (Astro Ch 393).

On The Air: American Horror Story: Coven

Posted: 27 May 2014 09:00 AM PDT

The third season of Ryan Murphy's horror anthology goes behind the doors of a boarding school in New Orleans that houses a coven of Salem descendants. But Hogwarts, Miss Robichaux's Academy is not.

To begin with, there are only four students – the spoiled teenage movie star Madison Montgomery (Emma Roberts) who also happens to move things with her mind, clairvoyant Nan (Jamie Brewer), human voodoo doll Queenie (Gabourey Sidibe) and Zoe Benson (Taissa Farmiga) who seems to hmm ... you know what, I still haven't the faintest idea what Zoe's power is.

The girl accidentally killed her boyfriend after sleeping with him (making the scene part of television's greatest celibacy campaigns).

For all its spellbinding characters and wickedly delicious female ensemble (Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett are regulars), the series suffers from a chaotic narrative that tries to incorporate too much – controversial historical figures, racism, oppression, female empowerment – within indistinct story arcs.

Coven is cerebral when it should have just been dramatic and explicit when it should have just been campy. — Chester Chin

American Horror Story: Coven airs every Thursday at 11pm on FX HD (Astro Ch 726).

On The Air: Castle

Posted: 27 May 2014 09:00 AM PDT

AFTER a lacklustre fifth season finale – a romantic proposal coupled with bittersweet news that Kate Beckett may leave for a job in Washington, D.C. – Season Six begins with ... more lacklustre action.

Of course Beckett said yes! Of course Castle agrees to support her career move! But, wait! Does Beckett and Castle's long-distance relationship mean we will see less of Esposito and Ryan?

I've come to adore these two characters especially after the couple went all sappy on us! Thankfully, Beckett returns to the NYPD and the foursome are reunited.

But even better than that, their brief separation seems to have revived the series almost back to orginal form. Almost. There is more focus on the weekly criminal cases and less sappy love drama. Hopefully, the season will have some pizzazz. — S. Indramalar

Castle airs every Monday at 9.50pm on Fox (Astro Ch 710).
