Cheating Craft Episode 5: I got nothing


I think I figured out what my problem with this show is. They focus way too much on the absurdity of the testing environment and not enough on the actual cheating. If half the effort that went into the exams and the examiners went into the cheaters and their techniques, this show might be fun.

Anyone else upset that they did basically the same scene five times this episode?

You know this is a Chinese proverb because it starts with "he who". Nicely done, translators.

Thanks...for the arrow?

I think the more surprising fact is that all of these students, half of whom are bookworm L-types that study all the time, didn't drown.

Seriously? Two slow camera pans underwater? That's like half of the episode.

Aaaand that's four.

They could have put a little bit of effort into the voicings and sound effects in this episode...come on, guys.

WHAT?

Casual shark murder.

    I'm getting the impression that they really didn't know what to do with the set up in this show. Someone had a cool idea for a story about cheating and that was as far as the planning went. I'm not writing a review for this during the week so it will be next before I catch up with this show. That said, it's probably a good thing they are short episodes.
