The 100 – “The Four Horsemen” Review and Analysis

How am I opening two out of my three season 4 reviews so far with a Ric Flair gif? Because it’s happening! When you call an episode “The Four Horsemen,” you’re gonna — WOOOOO! — get some goddamn Four Horsemen, baby!

And tell you what, I’d rather face these four in the ring than what Clarke and Co. have coming in the form of the second apocalypse, as a glimpse towards the future lands squarely on Arkadia’s doorstep in the form of what’s left of Luna’s riggies.

The 100 – “Heavy Lies The Crown” Review and Analysis

I’m just going to get this out of the way right now: this was, to me, a fantastic and uncompromising episode. It raises a couple tough moral dilemmas for our characters. Moreover, I appreciate that fact that I cannot say the choices made in “Heavy Lies the Crown” were definitively right or wrong, or good or bad, I can really only agree or disagree based on my own opinions and the facts at hand. And I LOVE IT. I’m sure we’ll get deep into these issues on our next May We Geek Again podcast, so be sure to check it out.

Everything leading up to season 4 has been very hopeful and positive; season 3 had its ups and downs and its massive controversy, but I’m here to “turn the page” and I look forward to what folks are calling a “reboot” of the show. After watching the premiere, I’m super hyped for season 4.

The 100 – Season 3 Wrap Up

So, I’ve had a hard time sitting down to write this because I’m, well, lazy. But…BUT…I’ve also been working on a new The 100 project that’s taken up a lot of my time and energy. And that project is called “May We Geek Again,” a podcast covering The 100. I’m joined by two co-hosts, Shahin and Jo, and we’re having a great time so far. Two episodes are up and if you’d like to give it a listen, you can find it at:

The 100 – “Perverse Instantiation Part 2” Review and Analysis

What a wild, crazy ride, y’all. Clarke saves the world (again), but also (maybe) condemns humanity to an ugly fate, as ALIE reveals nuclear reactors are melting down and destined to turn the earth into an unlivable mess in 6 months. Yay?

Season 3 concludes with a pretty strong finale, putting the cap on a tumultuous season that had some pretty high highs and some low lows. Season 3 was nothing if not incredibly ambitious, and for the most part, I think it paid off by exploring new themes and taking crazy risks. Continue reading

The 100 – “Perverse Instantiation Part 1” Review and Analysis

PI 07

The Adventure Squad and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. And we the fans had about 50 mini-heart attacks this episode because of the balls to the wall crazy pants action and twists.

I mean, COME THE FUCK ON. My heart was beating out of my chest for most of the episode. I thought we’d get a little time to ease into high-stakes action, but when Monty got shived by Jasper about 15 minutes in, my adrenaline started pumping and  I was ready to fight. Continue reading

The 100 – “Red Sky At Morning” Review and Analysis

Red skies 04.png

Now what? No, seriously, now what?! Because the Adventure Squad is so fucking screwed 90 ways from Sunday. Grounder Stevie Nicks Luna peaced out on our heroes, Raven screwed up in Arkadia, and ALIE is now untouchable on the Ark. Up in space. WHERE THEY CAN’T GET TO HER CODE. Because space and shit.

So. Screwed. Continue reading
