And Life Goes On- Finale of MGD
Posted on April 22, 2012
I was regretting that I didn’t watch the finale live this weekend. The sun was out, the flowers were blooming and it was the freakin’ weekend- as R. Kelly might point out. I had a great time sipping sangrias and throwing a BBQ. It’s how we roll in the Pacific Northwest when there is a semblance of sunshine.
So when Sunday finally rolled around and I caught up with the finale of Mam Gam Dang, I was glad I opted to enjoy life.
Because unfortunately, the ending was a total miss. It is almost as if Great Warinthorn (writer) or the director scratched their heads at the final fork in the road: I have all of these characters I’ve introduced, how will I finish them off? Let’s just create the most perplexing climax and closure of lakorns to date! Everything that I’ve enjoyed about Mam Gam Dang came crashing down..
Rather than talking about what I didn’t like (because to be honest, all of ep 13 was bad..) I’m going to relive what I liked about it instead. I love how Mam Gam Dang challenges the typical lakorn norms, I enjoyed and related to the strong attributes of our main leads and I thoroughly adored their progressive and eventual love story.
It is far from being a perfect lakorn, but it did managed to strike a chord with me, and for that, I truly appreciated it.

*crying* that they ruin it. but i’ve seen worst. mgd into scarred in my heart.
Can’t it be good from beginning to ending? =)
What’s next on your radar?
i’ve promised myself to keep up with buang, but i’ve failed to. so i’ve given up. waew mayura didn’t grab me, thus, i am now watching nothing but that’s good. i need to study for my finals. i just posted a announcement that I’ve taking a 3 week recess from LG to study. i’ll miss you.
Buang is just not my cup of tea. I’m going to miss you godninja. I wish you great success and high grades for your finals!
I’m sad this ended… don’t know what to watch now 🙁
That is the million dollar question… what to watch next?? I don’t know about anyone else, but I feel so uninspired, unmotivated by lakorns lately. Sounds like I need a break?
Maybe I should watch older lakorns or just venture out into a different drama (K, J, Chi) altogether??
Ah well, maybe it will figure itself out.
What I’ve noticed is that the lakorns during the first half of the year aren’t that great… hopefully the second half of the year gets better.
Good observation R. Tan. So far I’ve only found MLP and MGD inspiring 🙂
Hopefully Khun Seuk and Torrannee will turn things around for us- or who knows- we might stumble upon a gem like MGD.
Ahahaha… I think we have similar taste in lakorns. I would admit that MLP and MGD were good surprises – I thought I wouldn’t watch them but they ended up being the only ones that I really got into. I think the only ones I really watched beside that was Rak Ork Arkard. Wow, this seems so little. Where have all the good lakorns have gone?
Woo, new layout!
Re: Buang. The story reminds me of Roy Mai, but this time it’s the p’ek who gets the black magic treatment and uhhh, not my kinda thing either.
I’m a few days away from my trip and I’m so unprepared! haha, work hasn’t been letting up so I’m banking on this weekend to cram in all my last min planning/packing. o__O Also hadn’t count on ny being this cold in May and my Singapore wardrobe is ill fitted for it. boohoo.
Hehe, I got Spring fever. Needed something lighter and fresh.
How long will you be in the states? Dress warm! But pack for cold and warm.. the weather can be a little bizarre. I miss Singapore weather so much- haven’t been able to wear anything I brought back from Asia, unfortunately. Too cold here.
I’m going to miss chatting with you, I wish you a safe and fabulous trip! Can’t wait to hear all about it!!
As for lakorns, I’ve no idea what I’ll be watching .. but then again May 1st is coming right around the corner. Can’t wait for KS.. then Torranee (whenever that’s going to air..)
So it;s not just me to feel like there is no lakorn worth that keeps me asking for more 🙁 cross my fingers the second half of the year will surprise me 🙂
You’re definitely not the only one. I’m still looking for a lakorn that will knock my socks off 🙂
