The 100 “The Last War” Photo-Recap; Sorry, the Old Human Race Can’t Come to the Phone Right Now

I write to you now from the past - from a few minutes before I watch the series finale of The 100, when it is still Schrödinger's episode. I have some things to say before this story comes to a close.  So many, “long time listener first time caller” comments have been made on my … Continue reading The 100 “The Last War” Photo-Recap; Sorry, the Old Human Race Can’t Come to the Phone Right Now

The 100 “The Dying of the Light” Photo-Recap; Just Replace the Bulb Maybe

Indulge me in a thought exercise. Let’s pretend, just for the time it takes you to read this recap, that Bellamy Blake fell through a wormhole and ended up in an alternate universe populated only by Matilda the mutated gorilla and her mutated gorilla family. Let’s also pretend that Clarke is the woman we have … Continue reading The 100 “The Dying of the Light” Photo-Recap; Just Replace the Bulb Maybe

The 100 “A Sort of Homecoming” Photo-Recap; SIGH

Imagine, if you will, an alternate reality where we got an episode like A Sort of Homecoming, with reunions and hugs and great dialogue and action and a touching death scene (look at that, they DO know how to give a beloved character a good death), and heroism and banter and cute dancing… and it … Continue reading The 100 “A Sort of Homecoming” Photo-Recap; SIGH

The 100 “Blood Giant” Photo-Recap; The Head and the Disposable Plot Device

Why are ghosts such bad liars?  Because you can see right through them.  Heh. … heh.  Look, I know you came here for jokes, but I just don’t know how successful I’ll be in trying to laugh through the pain this time. I’ve recapped this show since the very first episode, and even when I … Continue reading The 100 “Blood Giant” Photo-Recap; The Head and the Disposable Plot Device

The 100 “The Stranger” Photo-Recap; You’ve Changed, Man

Excuse me, but I need a minute or seventeen or calm the sweet heck down, and make my heart stop trying to palpitate its way to Mars. THE ANXIETY that came with fearing for the Beautiful Creepster’s life was off the charts (and the chart is SO BIG!).   Please don’t take him from us, The … Continue reading The 100 “The Stranger” Photo-Recap; You’ve Changed, Man

The 100 “Etherea” Photo-Recap; Conversion Excursion

WELCOOOOOOOOOOOME BAAAAAAAAAACK, Bellamy Blake! It was very, VERY nice to see you again, even if you did drink allllllllllll the Kool-Aid. Just all of it. I’m not sure there’s any Kool-Aid left for anyone else. It’s pretty sugary, so you should probably brush your teeth.  The heart has returned to the show, and his first … Continue reading The 100 “Etherea” Photo-Recap; Conversion Excursion

The 100 “A Little Sacrifice” Photo-Recap; She’s a Real Gem

Hey guys! Thanks for coming to my blog even though there wasn’t an episode again this week. SO BIZARRE how it was just a blank screen for 42 minutes, huh? Like, NOTHING upsetting happened because nothing happened at all. I mean, it’s a weird choice, but I’ll accept it. So I guess we can just … Continue reading The 100 “A Little Sacrifice” Photo-Recap; She’s a Real Gem

The Austen Photo-Recap Chronicles; Northanger Abbey

Well, friends, we did it. We reached the final novel published (posthumously) by Jane Austen. What a journey our girl took us on! Imagine the stories that would've come out of her brilliant brain had she not been taken from the world so soon. *deep, awkwardly emotional sigh* But we shan’t dwell on what could've … Continue reading The Austen Photo-Recap Chronicles; Northanger Abbey

The Austen Photo-Recap Chronicles; Persuasion

Ah, lovely Persuasion, the mature readers’ Austen.  CONFESSION: this book wasn’t my favourite for a very long time. It wasn’t even top 3. I hadn’t read it since my twenties, and it was good, sure, but not as charming as Northanger Abbey, or as romantic as Pride and Prejudice, or even as heartwarming as Emma. … Continue reading The Austen Photo-Recap Chronicles; Persuasion

The 100 “The Flock” Photo-Recap; Get the Flock Out of There

Things are HAPPENING. Violent things! Sexy things! Disturbing things! Confusing things!  We got a flashback episode and we STILL don’t know how deep into the kool-aid punch bowl our girls are. Were they somehow aware of being tested, or did they really think they were knifing Hope in the THROAT? Is Levitt for-realsies in love … Continue reading The 100 “The Flock” Photo-Recap; Get the Flock Out of There
