    Hurray for jurors 7 & 8, who started the chain of doubt by asking pertinent questions! Brilliantly written movie with logic, humor and heart. Even more important is that the movie reaffirms faith in the ultimate goodness of our fellow human and the credibility of a jury trial judicial process. None of the jurors were experts in anything or geniuses. Nor did they hold high positions. They were just ordinary people. Yet, in order to arrive at a just verdict, they questioned to their satisfaction. And, instead of doing what was expedient, when it counted the most, each juror did his/her due diligence. After all, they are deciding the fate of another human being. The ensemble cast was excellent. The background music was tongue-in -cheek. This movie is worth rewatching. BTW, there is an old American movie, "12 Angry Men", which also showcased a jury deliberation. However, it doesn't have any humor.

    Description of this drama doesn't do it justice. I thought it was going to be a light-hearted drama about the main character learning and making a mess of her homemaker duties. Instead, this is a drama with a wonderful theme about the various "hats" that a woman wears, ie, as individuals, friends, spouses, mothers, etc. The drama explores some very unique and plausible situations, without being cloyingly contrived. There is no ' suspension of disbelief' required. However, best are the script and dialog that are filled with insightfulness and intelligence. I recommend paying close attention to the topic in each episode and the accompanying dialog discussing the topic. And, the ensemble cast is perfect. It is a pleasure to see all the 'top' stars in a drama together.

    This movie's all about the action fight scenes. Not that there is anything majorly wrong in this movie, it's just that the action and fight scenes are so creative and perfectly filmed. The cinematography is lovely. And, the wire work for the acrobatics during the fight scenes is superb. A very entertaining watch.
