Finally beginning to feel better and I hope I have this bug kicked soon. Being able to breath through my nose would be awesome. At least watching these episodes give me a nice distraction from the unpleasantness.
From what I remember of the few 2004 episodes I have watched I think things are more or less moving to what will be the standard for this upcoming season. With KAT-TUN continuing to dominate and the other remaining groups getting a bit more screen time. Of course we are getting close to Kis-My-Ft. and J.J. Express being formed, as they are both 2004 groups, but already there are some signs of things coming together for them between ity being with the group of Junior Boys where the permanent members of that group will come from and then also the pushing of the current group of little Juniors that will lead into JJE.
I was surprised that after them pulling Tackey & Tsubasa out to be guests in the first January episode they are no where to be seen in this second episode. It really makes me wonder if T&T was just a last minute thought to have been added. Oh well, it was actually nice not to have a guest for an episode for a change.
The episodes for next month will the last new episodes of the season, as the March episode is just a recap. So it will not be long before the next season starts and the show gets a bit of a shake. up.
