The 100 – S4E8

We agree that this episode is the best of the season so far, setting up brilliant and exciting stories to follow. The ending might have been a bit predictable, but was utterly satisfying anyway as Clarke does what’s right (perhaps foolishly). Jaha’s off on another pilgrimage to save the world through religion, and no one seems to be stopping him, proving that we never really learn from the past. And Jasper’s just interested in drugs and dancing–and really, who can blame him?


The 100: S4E7

The one in which Murphy plays househusband, Abby plays mad scientist, and Octavia plays a normal teenager (for once). God, who even remembers that half of this cast of characters is suppose to be less than 20 years old at this point? Things we loved about this one include Clarke being Clarke, and Emori being Emori. Things we didn’t love: Bellamy being Bellamy.

Top Five Real Life Badass Women

In this episode, we move to the real world and offer our list of Top Five Real Life Badass Women. These are people who inspire us by their strength and tenacity, who are making the world a better place for not only women, but for all people.

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!


Top Five TV Villains

What makes a good villain? Is it pure, unadulterated evil? Is it moral ambiguity? Is it creativity of methods? Join us for our Top Five Best TV Villains episode….although it should be noted that Jove’s list contains a lot more than five. She’s bad with rules. And Blythe’s good with that.
