The 100 – “Damocles Pt.1” Review and Analysis

I feel like I’ve fed through a woodchipper, heart-first.

Sorry kids. No GIFs or funny bits this time around…I’m a bit exhausted and simply can’t do a normal review.

Do you know how much I love this show? So much that I’ve probably written 150,000 words – that’s a very long novel y’all – sharing my thoughts about this show, spending nights and weekends on work I’m not paid for…something that I pretty much vowed I’d never do again after being a graphic designer waaaay back in another life. I love this show SO MUCH. So the wall I have suddenly slammed into really hurts my heart. And slam I sure have, with all the crunching, slippery gore you’d expect. Continue reading

The 100 – “The Dark Year” Review and Analysis

Welcome to my The 100 review site and food blog! Hey, if you’re looking for some great BBQ sauce recipes to spruce up your next “eat or I’ll kill you” soiree, you’ve come to the right place!

“The Dark Year,” written by Heidi McAdams and directed by Alex Kalymnios, featured the gears of war starting to finally grind, Clarke’s turnstile loyalty tested yet again, Octavia and friends had a nice stroll through the wasteland, and Kane and Diyoza, perhaps taking a page out of Clarke’s book, turned up on McCreary’s doorstep looking to peddle some Thin Mints, aka treachery. MAYBE. Jury’s out on that one.

Oh, and we learned that Wonkru ate people for a year in order to survive. No big.

The 100 – “The Warriors Will” Review and Analysis

Razing your best, last hope of avoiding bloodshed to the ground makes quite the statement, setting you on an irreversible path to destruction. It’s a strategy I’ve used my entire career, and boy is it fun!

“The Warriors Will,” written by the Sisters Benson, Shawna and Julie, and directed by purveyor of beardy sexy beards, Henry Ian Cusick, was a great episode that I really enjoyed despite having a quibble or two about certain things that just chap my ass. But from a drama/character perspective it hit all the right notes, brought out some hero moments I didn’t expect, and had a shocking en fuego reveal about Becca Pramheda that HAS to be leading somewhere.



My humor IQ is off the charts.

The 100 – “Sic Semper Tyrannis” Review and Analysis

You get a betrayal! You get a betrayal! Everyone gets a betrayal!

This episode, written by Miranda Kwok and directed by Ian Samoil, was an all-you-can-back-stab betrayal buffet!
