Recently, I bought a new TV for a good price.
Well, let's watch some TV dramas on it (because I haven't bought a DVD player yet...)
What are TV dramas like in your countries?
In Japan, a TV drama is usually a series of 10 to 12 episodes
and appears on the TV for 3 months (one episode per week).
If you want to watch this drama, you have to sit in front of the TV
at 9:00PM on every Monday, for example.
One episode is one hour including CMs. "Including CMs" is important.
The actual story in an episode is only about 40+ minutes
and all the rest is commercial messages.
(Popular titles from this year and last year)
You will see the same story novelized and filmized if it is successfull
as a TV drama, and vice versa.
When you have such a popular actor, you will see him
in two different TV dramas at the same time.
He plays a simple elementary school teacher on Saturdays
and a poor farther with 3 kids on Tuesdays, like him ↓↓↓
Wow, how busy he is.
Yusuke Kamiji (We see him on TV everyday this year.)
