What up people! The show that vexes me to no end, The 100 returns to The CW for its 5th outing this week and I have to say the first episode of season 5 made me remember why I used to adore this show.

Imagine a world where you could live out all your fantasies, no matter how vile they are, without consequences. That’s sort of the unintended premise of HBO’s latest mega series – Westworld. Many will applaud the show’s excellent production values while ignoring the glamorization and furtherance of an alarming rape culture. I guess depicting Rape is fine as long as it’s stylized and “has a point.” The saving grace is so far it hasn’t been graphically depicted, at least in the first two episodes.
