Update:  Changed date to saturday January 19th.  Sorry, another date change.  Hope this allows everyone currently signed up to still come and some others to join us!

 

And our next drama is... Boss!

"Boss" is the new drama series we are starting!  We just wrapped up the excellent historical series "Jin" and we've selected Boss as our next series.  Boss is a great show.  We already previewed an episode during one of the Jin drama nights.  It was a big hit!  Great cast and acting; excellent action and humor!!

The "boss" is Eriko Osawa.  She is a career woman just returned from 5 years training and working with the FBI in the United States.  She has been assigned to lead a new "Counter Measures" special task force to combat an increase in violent crime in Tokyo.  The new unit is supposed to be formed from the elite of the Division 1 police force.  However, the men in charge of Division 1 have no interest in the new unit succeeding and think Eriko should be fetching them coffee.  They give her unit all the odd-ball detectives of Division one.  Unfortunately for them Eriko is always the smartest one in the room and turns this odd-ball, outcast and entertaining group into the elite unit they are supposed to be.  She outsmarts the criminals AND the Division 1 leaders.  All while having fun and looking great while doing it!!!

Don't miss this new drama!  Each episode is complete, so it doesn't matter if you have missed episodes.  Come on out! Simple drinks and snacks are provided, just bring yourself.

We did already see episode 1, so we are starting on episode 2.  If you'd like to see episode 1 come early (5:45pm) and I'll run it again for you.  See you there!!!

    Thanks Scott, the Boss was better than I anticipated with lots of twists & turns in this episode. It was great seeing everyone and also meeting Eric's GF! Shirley, loved the Japanese sweets that your family brought! Is it a meibutsu from Sendai? It was the best!

    What a delightful evening! Thanks, Scott, for the early bird showing of Boss' first episode. The series was just great! I enjoyed seeing everyone again and am happy you all enjoyed the treats from Japan. I'm hoping for an event in April when I'll be back from California for a couple of weeks. Ja mata!

    Love Boss! Show was great, and thanks everyone for the great company! Shirley, loved the direct from Japan treats. And you win the farthest traveled award... all the way from California for a drama! Nice work! :-)

      Was a blast! Yes Shirley, your treats also win the award for most "Japan-ey!" Thanks so much. Great seeing everyone--my gf loved meeting you all, and gushed about how warm and friendly and accommodating everyone was!

    Hi Scott, I would like to attend these events, but during the evenings I would usually need to bring my 6 year old daughter. When you schedule the meetups, would you mind advising which ones are open to and appropriate for kids? Thanks!

      Hi Tanya, my place isn't kid-proof, but I think it should be ok for a 6-year old. Some of the other members have sometimes brought their kids. I would say most of our events are kid-friendly (they might be bored at some of them, however!).

      Oh, and so I meant to say come and bring your daughter! :-)

    My son & daughter-in-law visited from Japan last week and brought me Japanese sweets. I'll bring them to share with everyone. Some are custard-filled cakes - oishii!
