The 100 got a renewal order for next year. I’m at a loss as to where a season 5 can go. So far season 4 is everything that I wished season 3 was. Episode 5 was a game changing episode and featured everything that I used to love about the show. When I say game changing, the ending of the episode truly changes everything and did everything that I’ve been screaming that the show should be doing. Check out my video recap.
As Eminem once sang guess whose back? I had no intentions of watching or recapping The 100 again this season, but even though the show enrages me, it’s nice writing about something that I’m actually passionate about. I can’t help it. There was a lot more good than bad going on in the season premiere.
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.
So here’s the thing I love the cast of Grimm. They never take themselves seriously, well accept Silas Weir Mitchell (watch my Recap Video for my funny Silas story) and always fun to spend a little time with at SDCC. I generally end up having a drink with several cast members at NBC’s annual SDCC party. Never got a chance to visit the set though. With that said, I run hot and cold on the show. Grimm airs on NBC Friday nights.
Ok, I generally like to wait a season before I commit to recapping a show. I binge watched Colony over the holidays, so now I’m into it. In case you didn’t know Colony is basically V-The Miniseries without the aliens being at the forefront. It’s an alien invasion story without the aliens. It asks the question what would people do under these circumstances. Do you become a collaborator or try and resist? If you resist how do you do it? Season 2 returned to USA Network this week. At the end of the season everyone was left in a precarious place at the end of last season I’m pretty curious to see where season 2 is going. Colony airs on USA Network Thursday nights at 10pm.
I was in The Vegas last week hanging out with movie stars at CinemaCon – you know how I do, so missed recapping last week’s ep. Overall I liked it, but I’m sick to death of Bellamy’s bullshit and the fact that he never suffers any consequences for his actions. People act like he’s some 16 year old kid easily led around, but he’s a grown man who needs to accept responsibility for his reckless actions.
I’m one of those crazy fans who was really upset with Episode 7 and didn’t bother to watch the last Arkadia centric episode. I repeatedly stated in these recaps how much I’m loathing everything going on in Arkadia this season, so I certainly wasn’t going to waste my time watching an episode dedicated to all things Arkadia. Tonight we get back to more Grounder stuff as we finally get to see the Conclave. There’s no chance in hell Aden or any of the night bloods will survive.
After a pretty busy and sometimes shaky start, is Gotham ready to come back strong for the 2nd half of their freshman year? The first episode of the new year has a promising title “Rogues Gallery.” Are we finally going to get some forward momentum going?
Last week we saw Gotham’s first vigilante the Balloonman make an appearance and Bruce realizes that killing the bad guys isn’t the way. The week’s episode kicks off right where last week’s ended with freaky Cobblepot showing up on Gordon’s doorstep.
Crap really hit the fan last week, now we have to deal with the fallout. What’s going to happen now that Dr. Leekie is no more and Donnie knows the truth? Cosima is getting sicker and more desperate, she’s testing Kira’s DNA for a possible cure. We haven’t seen Helena in a few weeks. Sarah has formed an uneasy truce with Mrs. S and we still have to deal with the Felix situation.
