The 100: S4E6

Clarke and Roan working together to deliver materials to Raven so she can fly a rocket ship to space to make nightblood? As Roen put it, “What could go wrong?” We enjoyed a lot about this episode, especially Clarke and Nylah’s relationship, Murphy and Raven’s antipathy, and Luna and Murphy’s unexpectedly moving conversations.

Five Reasons to Watch Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones has won more Emmys than any prime time television shows, and with good reason: arguably the most ambitious show ever to grace the small screen, GoT is epic in narrative and aesthetic scale. Its plot twists and turns until you’re spinning, and it’s a good idea not to get too emotionally attached to any character (although, good luck with that). In this episode, we give five reasons to watch the show.

The 100: S4E4

We are thrilled to announce a new series of Badass Women Save Themselves, in which we analyze each episode of the CW’s The 100. In this, our first episode, we dig into 4×4, “A Lie Guarded.’ Clarke’s made a list, Roan’s planning a war, and Luna’s asking just how much agency she has over her own body. We talk about who really serves as Clarke’s conscience, whether Jaha is redeemable, and the emotional connections Raven forges with some of the people around her. Oh, and dental hygiene.

Top Five Ships!

Let’s talk about ships. No, not the kind with sails and pirates (although, really, we don’t spend enough time talking about that). The lesbian, fan-fic kind! In this episode, we discussion our top five non-canon lesbian ships. Some are so obvious they might as well be canon. Some we made up because it would have made the story more feminist. Most involve painfully beautiful women who stare at each other’s lips a little too much. All are a blast to discuss!

Five Reasons to Watch Emerald City

By now, you pretty much know the story of Dorothy’s trip to Oz inside and out, right? You’ve had the original Wizard of Oz, the soulful 1970s adaptation The Wiz, Gregory Maguire’s philosophical (fan-fic?) novel Wicked, and the blockbuster musical that followed. You’d think we would have exhausted innovative and compelling ways to tell this narrative. Well, NBC would like to challenge that impression, and their new take on this canonical story is visually rich and narratively innovative. In this episode, we offer five reasons to watch (and one reason not to) Emerald City.
