This fall, The CW debuts a reboot of a classic primetime soap (Dynasty) and a military drama (Valor). Then, for mid-season, the network has a superhero series from (surprise!) Greg Berlanti (Black Lightning) and a slightly sudsy comedy drama (Life Sentence).
Anyone who follows my ramblings know how much I absolutely loved the first two seasons of The 100 on The CW. You also probably followed my slow decent into madness during my weekly recaps of S3. I never believed that “rage quitting” was a real thing until The 100. It’s a strange feeling, being so passionate about something that it when it goes off the rails it literally enrages you enough to just saying “fuck it, I’m out.” I normally quit shows when I no longer care and am ambivalent.
This feels different, I know the cast and I still love the show and want to give S4 a chance but I know it’s going to drive me BatS crazy. I had the opportunity to talk to the show’s creator Jason Rothenberg and star Eliza Taylor and you all know I have no filter, so you can guess how it went. The 100 Season 4 premieres this week on The CW. Jason did tell Eliza to watch out for me, because I ask tough questions.
The 100 returns this week, February 1. I rage quit the show last season and highly doubt I’m going to watch S4. I’ve interviewed the cast so many times that I still feel connected to the show and want the cast to succeed. I purchased the S4 iTunes pass, so I may binge it at the end, but I can’t bring myself to recapping again especially after seeing that wretched S4 trailer. The best I can do is preview each episode.
