Not Papa's best week...

There is an old saying: "Position is everything."

That sums it up. If you stand in a line waiting to buy an orange, and there a lot of them to go around, you're in a good position no matter how long the line.

If you're at the end of a line of fifty people, and there are only 30 oranges to be had, you're in a bad position.

The figures on the new program are disappointing in the extreme. It has nothing to do with the performers or the story. It has everything to do with position.

Single Papa is up against two monsters, and they are eating the audience. Therefore the ratings, those magic ciphers the networks pursue as though they were nectar from the Gods, are not good. Papa is not in a good position, and there's more at stake than oranges.

There's a decent amount of activity at the Soompi Forum thread for the show, and a lot of screen caps some good people have uploaded.

If you are not a Soompi member, you can't access the pages. Signing up takes a few minutes, and it's free. No one will ask you to do anything extraordinary.

I'm asking you to try to show support for the show, Oh Ji Ho, and the rest of the cast, by going up to Soompi and participating in the forum. Even if you only say "hello", by commenting, you are seen as a person interested in the show. That's important. The more pages a thread has, the better. It shows a large active, or potential, audience.

These forums are usually a lot of fun once you get into them.

The second step: When you are signed in, use this link to take you directly to page 1 of the thread about Single Papa. http://www.soompi.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=190559

The above link will always take you to the thread as long as you're signed in.

A Soompi member found this link for YouTube. kirra12ppil has already put up the first 11 minutes of the show. No subtitles. Here is the link to that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGWjdbvqN0w

It is absolutely great! See it!
