The 100 – “Die All, Die Merrily” Review and Analysis

Congrats on winning the Conclave Octavia! And you’ve united the clans! It would be a shame if Clarke screwed everything up by seizing control of the bunker and locking everyone out.

Other than my anger over the twist at the end of the episode, how did I like the rest of “Die All, Die Merrily”? I mean, there was a lot of hype going into this puppy, both from reviewers and those involved with the show. So my expectations were mega high. What do I think of the episode?

The 100 – “DNR” Review and Analysis

I have to get this off my chest at the jump: if Raven dies, I will flip tables and set cars on fire and punch squirrels. Meaning: I WILL RIOT.

“DNR” sets us up the very real possibility of Raven floating herself. But it’s her choice, as her brain is deteriorating and she’s decided she wants to go out doing what she loves…spacewalking. And I can’t say I disagree with her decision, nor do I begrudge her complete agency over her fate. Agency and the ability to act as one wants has been a vital part of the show, and extremely important for a disabled character on TV. So I applaud the power Raven displayed this episode, even if I will be howling at the moon like a feral gerbil if she dies.  Continue reading

The 100 – “God Complex” Review and Analysis

Phew, I’m so glad The 100 took a break from its heavy moral quandaries. BWAH HA HA HA. I LIE. Like this show is going to take its foot off the gas pedal! Whoo boy, this one was a doozy over on The Road To Hell Is Paved With More Hell Island. We also found the wacky cult bunker under Polis. And we had some fun with Jasper’s nuts.

Wait. Phrasing.

Jasper’s wacky nuts.


Mamrie Hart nailed it

The 100 – “Gimme Shelter” Review and Analysis

Do you enjoy a nice afternoon thunderstorm? I like to fall asleep to the sound of the raindrops or curl up with a good book or OH MY GOD THE RAIN BURNS WHY DOES IT BURN HOLY SHIT RUN OH MY GOD IT’S BURNING MY SHIT OFF I’M DYING HELP STOP IT I’M DYING FOR REALS!!!

Guys, radioactive black rain is here and…

Lisa Rinna we are fucked

This episode was written by new series duo of Terri Hughes Burton and Ron Milbauer. In addition, “Gimme Shelter” was directed by permanent series hype machine and supervising producer Tim Scanlan. What did all these talented people produce? Quite possibly the most confusing episode of Barefoot Contessa on record. Continue reading

The 100 – “We Will Rise” Review and Analysis

So, here was my plan for this week: Get some work done on Monday, swing by the hospital to get my gallbladder removed on Tuesday, recover on Wednesday, then be back to work and into the swing of things on Thursday like nothing happened. Easy peasy.

The 100 Season 4 – Preposterous Predictions and Potential Possibilities

So, we’re 5 episodes into season 4 and on a break this week, so I says to myself, I says: “Why not write up some predictions for the rest of the season? It’s not like you have anything better to do since you’re desperately hopeless as a human being.”


I obviously know how to play to my strengths and fill myself with confidence. So, without further ado, my preposterous predictions and potential possibilities! Who doesn’t love alliteration? Or should I say palliteration……..HAHA……..wait…………………language doesn’t work that way……………………….. Continue reading

The 100 – “The Tinder Box” Review and Analysis

Show downs, spaceships, and ‘splosions, oh my.

“The Tinder Box,” written by series newcomer (but experienced sci fi writer), Morgan Gendel, firmly planted its flag in the ground as the “oh fuck, what now” episode in the season. With Arkadia now mostly in ruins and off the table as a haven to save 100 people from the coming apocalypse, we’re now back to ground zero in terms of a viable solution to save humankind.
