‘No Boys Dorm’ Episode Six Recap (Season Finale)

Well, we all knew the time would come eventually, but after six weeks it’s finally time for me to sit down and recap the season finale of No Boys Dorm. Like always, if you haven’t watched the sixth episode yet, you should do that unless you enjoy having everything spoiled for you.

If you do enjoy reading spoilers… um… welcome to the recap? Make sure you still watch the show afterwards?

Anywho, we need to summarize where we are as quickly as possible (and pretty much the entire first season of the show leading up to this episode). Before the series started:

  • Lara No used to live a life of crime, and had a boyfriend named Dresden.
  • Lara No gave up her life of crime, and her boyfriend named Dresden.
  • Lara No’s Apartment burned to the ground.

And during the series:

  • Lara No went to crash with her brother Leon at his Dorm (at the illustrious and exclusive “Academy”)
  • To stay there, she had to pretend to be both a student and the girlfriend of ‘elite’ student Takashi
  • Takashi hasn’t ever told her why he’s helping
  • Takashi barely speaks, and looks constantly bored. Sexy-bored.
  • Elite student Teela Tether had her eyes set on Takashi, and has decided she must destroy Lara
  • Teela has employed the ‘Shadow Order’ to get Lara
  • The ‘Shadow Order’ includes a guy named Cyrus, who totally wants to get with Lara’s friend Alba
  • Alba is better than you.
  • Moe is moe.
  • Isaac is a sociopath but handy to have around.
  • Jason is more attractive than you, but forgets it when Maron walks in the room
  • Alice likes Jason, but Jason is super gay.
  • Martin (the RA) likes yelling at people, and has an assistant Janet… which is weird right? Since when did RAs have assistants? That’s not in the housing budget.
  • Molly Anne needs better friends.
  • People fall on each other a lot.

Wow, that got super long and I left a bunch of stuff out. On to this week though! Continue reading ‘No Boys Dorm’ Episode Six Recap (Season Finale)

‘No Boys Dorm’ Episodes Four and Five Recap

Well, it’s been two weeks since we last posted a No Boys Dorm recap, which means it’s time to tackle yet another two installments of this amazing webseries.

This time we’re covering episodes four and five, which you should probably watch before you read this. Y’know, unless you like massive spoilers or something.

To summarize where we are now, after Lara No tried to leave her criminal past behind her, her apartment burned down. Now homeless, Lara has moved into her brother Leon’s dorm at the exclusive “Academy.” Unfortunately, to crash with Leon (and his roommates Jason and Isaac), Lara has to pretend to both be an Academy student and the girlfriend of “elite” student Takashi.

Because of reasons.

This has made Lara an enemy in the eyes of Teela, an elite student who had her eyes set on Takashi herself. Teela has employed the talents of the “Shadow Order” to take down Lara — although it seems to consist of some guy named Cyrus who likes to shuffle cards alone in hallways.

Filling out the rest of the world are Alba (an old friend from Lara’s criminal past) and Moe (an old friend from Lara’s boring past). Oh, and Martin (the RA) and his Assistant Janet are there. Martin’s the best one.

I think that should cover it… Continue reading ‘No Boys Dorm’ Episodes Four and Five Recap

‘No Boys Dorm’ Episodes Two and Three Recap

It’s been a couple of weeks since we posted our recap of the first episode of MediaJunkie’s No Boys Dorm, which means it’s time to jump back into the world of Lara No and “The Academy” again.

In this installment, we’ll be covering episodes two and three, which you should really go watch before reading this (unless you want everything spoiled).

Episode one introduced us to the recently homeless Lara No, who is now pretending to be a student at the illustrious “Academy” with the help of her brother, his friends, and the “elite” Takashi (who seems to be helping because he’s bored or something). Takashi is pretending that Lara is his girlfriend, which gives her privileges in the boy’s dormitory. Of course, “classic snob” Teela had her sights set on Takashi for herself, and she’s declared Lara her enemy.

Oh, and Lara fell on people a lot.

Let’s see where we are now though… Continue reading ‘No Boys Dorm’ Episodes Two and Three Recap

‘No Boys Dorm’ Episode One Recap

MediaJunkie’s No Boys Dorm, the spiritual successor to their (My) Immortal webseries, debuted the first of its six episodes today. We previously recapped the second season of (My) Immortal, and we thought we’d do so again for this series. But rather than wait until the end of the season, like last time, we thought we’d post these as the show goes up.

Recaps for some future episodes may be combined, but as this is the first installment (and a ton of stuff gets introduced), we thought it deserved its own.

With any of these reviews and recaps, you should probably watch the episode first if you don’t want anything spoiled. Now on with the summarizing. Continue reading ‘No Boys Dorm’ Episode One Recap
