The first Japanese TV drama I ever stumbled across, on a visit in the 90s, was this rush of uncut melodramatic insanity. I think it was actually the even more batshit second season I saw, but either way, nothing I’ve seen since has topped it for me.

Maybe we need to modify the model: "the recent Netflix trend in the West is to cancel shows, even after one season, EXCEPT WHEN THEY'RE ABOUT PORN"
