Recap/Rewatch, Yuri on Ice — Episode 11 Gotta Super-Supercharge it! Grand Prix Final Short Program

Of all the episodes in the series, this one is my least favorite for several reasons. It doesn’t really have much of an arc, because it’ can’t: the whole purpose is to watch the six finalists skate and to set up the last episode, the latter which should really be two, or better yet three […]

Yuri on Ice, Episode 1: Easy as Pirozhki!! The Grand Prix Final of Tears

A reminder this is the second time I’ve recapped this episode, and this is a more casual version, though also far more informed. Probably this is best consumed if you’ve seen the show, though you’re free to wade in if you hadn’t But you should watch the show. So I watched this on my BD […]
