It’s been a while since a show with such a clear concept came around, and on the CW no less! The 100 has a really strong premise, and the pilot didn’t disappoint (much).

So, to give a quick breakdown of what’s happening here, 100 juvenile prisoners are sent down to earth to see if it’s now viable for life. No one has been back to earth since a nuclear war wiped human life out, and fourteen space stations came together to make the Ark, where the remaining human population lives. They’re quickly running out of oxygen and supplies, so instead of sending some probe to test earth’s radiation levels, they figure it’s all good to just air drop 100 kids down there and see what happens. You might think this is a bit rash, but in a ‘world’ where anyone who commits a crime (of ay kind) is sentenced to death. Continue reading

The Originals – Season 1 Episode 17 – Moon Over Bourbon Street Review

We’re still struggling to wrap out heads around the news that Claire Holt is gone from the show here at The TV Ninja. Moon Over Bourbon Street has seen the story jump one month into the future from Rebekah’s exit, and Elijah is firmly in control.

The Originals – Season 1 Episode 16 – Farewell to Storyville Review

Screen Shot 2014-03-20 at 11.39.38

Picking up after last week’s huge cliffhanger was always going to be fun. They’re still faced off in the graveyard when they’re trapped there by Celeste. Elijah does his best to calm Klaus down. Not an easy job, that one. Still I was pretty happy to see what was going to happen.

The Originals – Season 1 Episode 15 – Le Grand Guinol Review

ImageOk, can someone explain to me what’s really going on here? After fourteen episodes of no sibling issues, there’s plenty to deal with in Le Grand Guinol. When Elijah plunged the blade into Klaus’ chest I, for one, was pretty darn shocked. Everything did feel a little too relaxed and comfortable amongst the original family, so I guess it was just time to kick off. Continue reading
