After I finished watching The Quiz Show 2 with Sho and Yoko, I decided to watch the first season. I didn't expect it to have many similarities in the characters as well as in the final episode.

The Quiz Show 1 is pretty much the same premise as season 2, a quiz show where the contestants are asked 7 questions and after answering those questions they get the chance to fulfill one of their dreams. The host of the show is MC Tazaki a really weird character, that confronts the contestants with personal questions in order to make them admit their sins. He does an amazing job as a host, but is a very mysterious person, this is due to the fact that he lost his memory.


 
The other important character is the producer of the Show, Yamanobe,  who controls Tazaki's every move, he holds the key to unlock Tazaki's memory, and is the one that chooses the contestants and the questions. In several episodes he mentions the relation btwn the contestant and one of the Seven Deadly Sins.
 

 
I found this show interesting, the thing is after watching season 2 I have to say this show lacked character development, the episodes were really short 23 - 26 min long I think, so there wasn't really much time for the contestants to develop their story. But overall it was a good show that entertains you.

Similarities btwn both shows )
  • Both MC had amnesia
  • In the first episode, we have singers as contestants and both killed someone and both didn't get to accomplish their dream.
  • In episode 2 we have female contestants that betray their own selves in order to achieve what they wanted, both won the Dream Chance.
  • In episode 4 we have fortunetellers as contestants that wanted to promote their new fortunetelling technique, but are just fake people that at the end had to admit it.
  • Now to the final episodes, both had the MCs as the contestants and recover their memory thanks to Yamanobe and Honma. They admit they committed a crime. In the final episode the roles are inverted and now the contestants are Yamanobe and Honma, both discover that they are the ones who committed the crime and discover a shocking truth.
There are more similarities both those are the most important in my opinion.

Lastly I liked Honma's DREAM CHANCE dance in season 2 but Yamanobe's is pretty interesting too. Here is the link to watch it www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6hmy94ZK9s&feature=related 
Tazaki's wasn't as good as Sho's it was really disappointing.

I've been waiting patiently for the subbed episodes, and finally I get to watch the entire drama!!! I'm so happy.

The Quiz show 2 , well the real reason I watched it was because Sho-chan and Yoko where there!!!!! And I don't regret it at all, it was the best collabo ever!!!

When I finished The Quiz Show 2 and after hearing them mention the previous drama I decided to give it a try, so I watched The Quiz Show 1 also, it was good, but I think season 2 is way better.  

First thing first. The quiz show 2 is a suspense drama whose main characters are very mysterious; the MC, and the director(Sho and Yoko). It's about a quiz show (what a surprise!) where the contestants participate for the right to have their most important dream fulfilled. But the questions they are been asked are no common questions, they are very personal questions that will uncover a deep secret they been hiding, here is the catch they have to decide btwn exposing their secret or fulfilling their dream. 

Sakurai Sho acts as MC Kamiyama the host of the show, he is a really charismatic MC, but the thing nobody knows, except Honma the director's show is that he lost all his memories and obeys everything Honma tells him to do.




Yokoyama Yu acts as Honma the show's director he is the one that chooses the contestants for the show and elaborates the questions. He hids a dark past together with Kamiyama.



There is also the producer of the Show, Saejima, she isn't aware of the intentions of Honma and disagrees with his methods, but also cares about getting good ratings, that´s why she lets Honma do things his way.

I just finished this drama, and found it really awesome. First of all because I got to see Tamaki Hiroshi (a.k.a. Chiaki-sempai from Nodame) , DAIGO and Matsuda Shota (a.k.a. Nishikado-san from HYD)

At first I didn't want to watch this drama, because I thought it will be some kind of weird drama where 4 couples will change their partners, but in some kind of twisted way, but this isn't tha case.

LOVE SHUFFLE is about finding the meaning of true love and the importance of each others existence in this world. It has many comic parts and I also liked so much the friendship btwn the 4 leading characters. I was pretty pleased with the ending and also excited about it. 

We have Usatan (Tamaki Hiroshi) who is engaged with Mei, but then one day Mei decides to cancel the engagement.
Then we have Aiai (Karina) who has a relationship with Yukichi (DAIGO) but wants to end it for good.
There's also O-chan (Matsuda Shota) who is a cameraman and has a relationship with and older woman who is married.
And finally we have a pshyquiatrist Kikurin who wants to stop his patient Kairi from committing suicide. 

The 4 leading actors found themselves trapped in an elevator and then talked about love issues, this is the beginning of their friendship and also the beginning of the Love Shuffle "game". They decide to switch partners each week and found out what their true compatibilities are. 

This leads to very interesting sets and comic situations.
