I’m the first to point out a drama’s descent into latter half insanity and/or doldrums, but in the case of Protect the Boss, I think it’s yet early to make that inference. I have the feeling the kooky denizens of Boss-land might just continue to remain subversive and deal with the arising conflict in ways that are different and refreshing, just like the drama has done from the get go. What I don’t want is any problem dragged out too long, and would rather spend the remaining five episodes watching all the characters enjoy their newfound relationships together.
