The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Okay, I admit that I didn’t watch Katie the paralegal toss her “pre-Raphaelite” curls on ABC’s first episode of “The Deep End,” even though I had a pretty good time blogging about her based on TV reviewers’ online articles.
Kenichiro’s female cognate is the protagonist of “Magerarenai Onna” (The Woman Who Can’t Be Bent; Nihon TV, Wed., 10 p.m.), whose own scrupulousness is manifested as a stubborn refusal to listen to others’ opinions.
Saki (Miho Kanno) is a 32-year-old paralegal who has taken the bar exam every year for nine years and still hasn’t passed. Everyone tells her she should just give up and get married.
I say, “Girlfriend, go ahead with your bad self, and flunk that bar exam as many times as you want.”
