The 100 – Season 1 Episode 1 – Pilot

Screen Shot 2014-03-28 at 15.33.36

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 Walking Dead – Season 4 Episode 14 – The Grove Review

Screen Shot 2014-03-20 at 12.44.06

Wow! This has to be the best episode of the season so far. Not only because it was a great hour of TV, but because it was the kind of TV that ripped your heart and soul out and danced all over them, so that by the time it was up I had no idea what was going through my head.

Tyrese, Carol and the girls were by far the focus of The Grove, and when they stumbled onto that house I knew something bad was going to happen. The Walking dead won’t ever let anyone be truly happy, not for long, and it was obvious the happy family home life wasn’t going to stick around here for the long term, but I had no idea what was about to happen.

The Walking Dead – Season 4 Episode 13 – Alone Review

ImageAlone was all about decisions and making the right ones. The group is all split up and most of the people who have grown the closest over the last four seasons are split up. They’ve got to make a choice, go off alone and try and find their BFFs/ significant others or stick with the groups they’ve got and hope for the best. There was also a little side story about Bob, and how he came to join the group. Continue reading

The Walking Dead – Season 4 Episode 12 – Still Review

Image

Guess I was wrong when I said that we we’re going to spend our episodes following the different pockets of survivors from the prison last week, because Still was all about Daryl and Beth, where they’re at right now, and how much they’ve changed, not just since the prison, but since they left the farm in the first place.

Ninja News – Supernatural: Tribes

Picture 147

A little while back the guys over at The CW announced that a Supernatural spin-off was in the works. While we’ve been dealing with that (there’s been some pretty mixed feedback so far) they’ve also come out and said that it will start as a backdoor pilot, coming in episode 20 of Season 9.

Supernatural: Tribes is going to be set in Chicago, and features (you guessed it) a mixture of young people fighting within the different four monster families that exist. A (once again) young (gotta love The CW) police officer tries his best to shut down all supernatural happenings in Chicago, and comes across the four mafia-esque monster families that are running the city’s underworld. Good luck with that!

Nathaniel Buzolic and Lucien Laviscount have both been cast in the show. Let’s hope Buzolic steps up his game, having been essentially written out of both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals already.

Tune in later this season to get a sneak peak and decide for yourself whether Supernatural: Tribes is worth watching. (Ps. No Winchesters!)

Helix – Season 1 Episode 8 – Bloodline Review

ImageIt’s secrets galore at our favourite arctic facility. Hidden stories keep piling up, and with no cure in sight, the place is now a crazy house. Constance Sutton is on full force this episode, asserting her power in what she considers to be her project. The rest of the crew members are at the point where they would rather risk it all than let her continue her reign of terror.
