Marvel’s Inhumans – Season 1 Episode 5

“Something Inhuman This Way Comes” Marvel’s Inhumans finally brings most of the Royal Family back together as Crystal learns what it means to be Human. The past few episodes concentrating on the characters being on their own has been somewhat frustrating. As I’ve repeatedly said they aren’t interesting or sympathetic so waiting for them to…

Mavel’s Inhumans – Season 1 Episode 4

“Make Way for…Medusa” Marvel’s Inhumans reaches the halfway point and starts to work on reuniting the characters as Maximus moves forward with his plan. I mentioned last week that Medusa was one of the stronger characters in that particular episode. That really isn’t saying much but she did have one genuinely emotionally resonant moment that…

Marvel’s Inhumans – Season 1 Episode 3

“Divide and Conquer” Marvel’s Inhumans continue as the characters work to reunite on Earth as Maximus plots to solidify his power on Attilan. Before I really begin it’s worth noting that I watched the broadcast version of the first two episodes that I had already seen and I’m glad that I did as there are…

The 100 – Season 4 Episode 13

“Praimfaya” The 100 closes off season 4 with the arrival of the Death Wave and a race against time to make it into space before it’s too late. Last week ended with the last ditch plan to escape into space and live on what’s left on the Ark. To make this happen, Raven needs to…

The 100 – Season 4 Episode 12

“The Chosen” The 100 prepares for the finale by dealing with the difficult problem of choosing who gets to survive and who is left to die when time runs out. Everyone wants to survive but not everyone can. The main issue can’t be simplified any more than that. It’s very simple to understand but very…

The 100 – Season 4 Episode 11

“The Other Side” The 100 deals with Clarke and Jaha’s decision to deprive the other Clans access to the bunker as Raven tries to find a way to live. I had mixed feelings about the ending to last week’s episode and I suspect that was exactly the point. The choice made by Clarke and Jaha…

The 100 – Season 4 Episode 10

“Die All, Die Merrily” The 100 channels its inner Hunger Games as representatives from all 13 clans battle it out to decide who has control over the bunker. Battles for survival aren’t unusual for this show as most of the major arcs have amounted to various characters fighting for their lives in one way or…

The 100 – Season 4 Episode 9

“DNR” The 100 returns from hiatus with only 6 days to go until the Apocalypse with the reality of the situation really starting to sink in for the characters. I’m really glad that the show has dispensed with last minute last hopes as a plot device for the moment as it was getting really contrived…

The 100 – Season 4 Episode 8

“God Complex” The 100 continues to explore the available options now that they are merely 10 days away from certain death by radiation. I’ve mentioned in previous reviews that this show has a preoccupation with Doom. I’ve never said it in quite those words before but the sentiment is a common one from me. The…

The 100 – Season 4 Episode 7

“Gimme Shelter” The 100 slows things down a little when irradiated rain forces everyone to take shelter and worry about their future. This was a refreshing change of place. The 100 has been burning through plot at an accelerated rate this season and it has caused a lot of narrative issues for the show. I…
