Review: ‘The Walking Dead’ Episode 5.13 “Forget”

***Spoiler Alert*** A lot of weird stuff happened, so you probably should go watch it.

We are two episodes in since Rick’s group has joined the peaceful community of Alexandria and while some seem to be adjusting well (Maggie and Michonne). Rick, Carol, Daryl and Sasha seem to be having a harder time living with the locals. The episode focused mostly on their path to “normal living,” which seems to have proved to be rocky for some. This week had a lot going on and there is so much to discuss. Continue reading Review: ‘The Walking Dead’ Episode 5.13 “Forget”

Review: ‘The 100’ Episode 2.15 “Blood Must Have Blood, Part One”

****SPOILER ALERT****

Last week, the group had successfully taken down the defenses of Mt. Weather. At the beginning of this week’s two part finale, Lexa and Clarke’s plan is going off without a hitch. Bellamy frees the captive Grounders inside, gearing them up for a fight. Indra and Octavia make their way through the mining tunnels, where they plan to escape with all of the newly freed people. Clarke and Lexa wait outside the main door of the mountain with an army. While Raven and Wick take down the power through the dam. Everyone is in place so, what could go wrong?

Review: ‘The Walking Dead’ Episode 5.12 “Remember”

***SPOILER ALERT***

Last week, the group was faced with the opportunity to join the community of Alexandria. This week, we get to see how they are adjusting to this seemingly perfect place. There is an eerie calm as the group enters the streets of Alexandria. They don’t know what to except and probably seem like a Rick seems kind of cocky, like he is the hero (oh, wait, he is) as he tells them, “It’s a good thing we’re here.” You tell them Rick… Continue reading Review: ‘The Walking Dead’ Episode 5.12 “Remember”

Review: ‘The 100’ Episode 2.14 “Bodyguard of Lies”

***SPOILER ALERT***

First, let’s briefly recap last week’s episode (Episode 2.13 “Resurrection”) :

The aftermath of missile leaves Clarke feeling a bit guilty (Abby doesn’t help matters). Marcus gets stuck underneath piles of rubble, but is saved by Abby and Octavia. Jasper’s group prepares to defend the floor of Mt. Weather they have taken over. Cage has too many men and weapons, but the group manages to escape thanks to Bellamy. Maya’s dad and other opposing Cage help hide them for the time being. By the end of the episode Abby realizes that it was too harsh to judge her daughter when being on the council has lead to similar hard decisions. Indra reconciles with Lincoln. Clarke is told by Abby to not “forget that we’re the good guys.” Continue reading Review: ‘The 100’ Episode 2.14 “Bodyguard of Lies”

Review: ‘The Walking Dead” Episode 5.11 “The Distance”

**SPOILER ALERT** We recapped this a couple days late, so you should have already watched the show. Seriously.

In this week’s episode the group reacts to the suspiciously clean Aaron, who emerged out of the woods to startle Sasha and Maggie. He is as charming as the Governor without seeming too condescending. He tells them he understands why they don’t trust them, but shows them pictures of his community and tells them he wants them to “audition” for membership. Rick punches Aaron because he has apparently forgotten how to say “no thanks.” I get it; it is hard to trust anyone in this world especially since they have already faced some nasty people. Its possible that Aaron could be just another Governor, Gareth, or Dawn. Continue reading Review: ‘The Walking Dead” Episode 5.11 “The Distance”

Review: ‘The Walking Dead’ Episode 5.10 “Them”

**SPOILER ALERT** Not much happened this week, but still.

Not a whole lot happened this week, but there is much to discuss. The show was a little slow paced, but that doesn’t mean that the group is out of danger. They are put in the very real situation of being emotional drained, weak, and hungry. It also doesn’t help that they don’t really have a definite place to push forward to. Continue reading Review: ‘The Walking Dead’ Episode 5.10 “Them”

Review: ‘Scandal’ Episode 4.12 “Gladiators Don’t Run”

**Spoiler alert** If you haven’t seen Thursday’s episode then GO WATCH IT ALREADY!

Recap: 

Attention World: Olivia Pope is for sale, today only! Exclusive to terrorist members only!

She immediately goes to Pope & Associates where Quinn and Huck refuse to say anything because “You’re not a Gladiator anymore,” Abby. Fitz gets a team together to find a way into the auction. Telling Cyrus and Mellie, “We can win this. Who has more money than the United States?” They name a few like China and United Arab Emirates, but Fitz still wants in.

Review: ‘The 100’ Episode 2.12 “Rubicon”

**SPOILER ALERT** Stuff happens, I talk about it, so you should probably make sure you have already watched Wednesday’s episode before you read it.

In this week’s episode, Jasper’s group fights to stay alive, Bellamy finds a new ally, and Clarke is reminded of how much it sucks being a leader.

Review: ‘The Walking Dead’ Episode 5.9 “ What Happened and What’s Going On”

**Spoiler Alert** If you haven’t seen Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead, than you probably already know what happened. The Internet is a big old gossip.

The world can rejoice because our beloved show is back and they didn’t spare any time in breaking our hearts once again. If you are an avid reader of TV news then you may have read the numerous teasers about what lied ahead for the group. It really isn’t anything new; destruction and devastation all around! Judging by the first episode back from winter break, the group is headed to a dark place (mentally, maybe even physically.) Things are looking bleak, again. Which, of course, leads to some of the greatest moments in the show’s history. So, let’s get started and recap the wreckage from Sunday’s episode.

Review: ‘Scandal’ Episode 4.11 “Where’s the Black Lady?”

**Spoiler Alert** Don’t read this unless you like ruining everything for yourself.

Last week’s episode proved that Olivia Pope can hold her own, but the realization that she may never get out has left her feeling hopeless. This week we get to see what everyone in the Scandal universe, including Olivia, is willing to do for her safe return. Continue reading Review: ‘Scandal’ Episode 4.11 “Where’s the Black Lady?”
