The 100 – Season 3 Wrap Up

Season 3 poster 02.jpg

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

pi 13.jpg

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

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

The 100 – “Join or Die” Review and Analysis

Join or die 02

“Oh crap.” Things go from bad to crucifixion-y in Polis, Luna’s all like “uh, no” when given the opportunity to become Commander, and somehow I now care about Pike now? You guys, so much happened but not really from an action standpoint? Which is fine because we got a lot, A LOT of good stuff. And some head-scratchers, but that’s pretty much season 3 in a nutshell.

“Join or Die” gave us tons of stuff to marvel over – flash backs of the Ark! Floudonkru! Luna! – and tons of stuff to horrify us – ALIE controlling Abby! Crucifixion!

WHAT, TOO SOON GUYS? I couldn’t resist the cheap joke. Sue me.

The 100 – “Demons” Review and Analysis

Demons 03a

Demons of the past come back to haunt the world of The 100 and stir up trouble. A demon comes a callin’ this week as Clarke learns that tying up loose ends may be a bit more important than mercy. And the true monster of this season grows even more powerful as ALIE becomes the defacto Commander in Polis.

We’re getting close to the end of this season and with only four episodes left, I’m starting to feel a sense of dread because I don’t think things are going to end well and we’ll have a long wait until season 4. A long hiatus to freak out, share theories, and wonder what lays in store for us next year. One thing’s for certain, people are going to die and I’m going to need a big fucking hug.

The 100 – “Nevermore” Review and Analysis

bitey raven 3The Adventure Squad is back! This is not a drill. THE ADVENTURE SQUAD IS BACK! And it is a welcome return to the roots of The 100. It’s like slipping under a nice warm blanket…a warm blanket filled with anger, resentment, and heartbreak. Because our intrepid delinquents have BEEN THROUGH SOME SHIT, y’all, and are quick to play the blame game and lay guilt trips on one another.

But as dysfunctional as this reunion often is, it is glorious. It shows the delinquents at their best, fighting for their friend’s soul. The dynamic between the Adventure Squad members is the heart of this goddamn show. They are family. Believe that. BELIEVE IT.

So, say it with me: ADVENTURE SQUAD ASSEMBLE! I’m so happy right now!
