The 100 Season 2 Episode 8 Review: Spacewalker

I must say that last nights' episode brought tears to my eyes. I cant believe that a TV Show could have done that to me. My heart was so broken. I never expected Finn to turn himself over to the "grounders" and neither did I expect Clarke to kill him. At the same time I can understand why she did it. After all, it would have been too painful to see him being tortured. But what I cant get is why the grounders are so hard-headed. No one is ever willing to just listen to the 'arkers' much less to see that they just want to live- that's why they came to earth in the first place. This show is so interesting. It has so many twists and turns that causes me to have so many emotions all at the same time. Finn's death made me so sad but at the same time - made me wonder what kind of relationship Clarke will now have with Raven and the rest of her people. Looking forward to the resumption of the show in January 2015. Still want to know what will happen to those at Mount Weather. How will things turn around as it relates to the Octavia and Lincoln. Cant wait...

Arrow Round Table: What's Next for Starling City?

"Protect him from the punishment of the grave" will do just that for Oliver. He will return and perhaps have learned a lesson: the boy becomes a man, He is after all the lead arrow. I'm just hanging on to Ollies' admission that he loves Felicity. That to me is the bigger of the cliffhangers.

When you have an entire episode full of flashbacks on two main characters only,you know who will be kicking the bucket at the end!That and the episode title gave it away for me.When raven gave clarke that knife/scalpel,i really thought she was going to kill lexa for a moment but when i saw clarke's face when she asked to say goodbye,i knew exactly what was going to happen.Nevertheless,it was tragic and gut-wrenching!
What i love about this show is that even though sometimes the twists are a bit predictable like this episode,they execute it such a unique and unorthodox way-it makes the watch worthwhile!
I can't wait to see raven-clarke confrontation or how it's going to affect clarke moving forward!Brilliant episode,one of the best written shows on-air at present IMO!

Stalker Round Table: Perry's Commuppance

I prefer Amanda with her current boyfriend maybe because I love the actor who plays the role.
The only problem I have with the show is the lack of team dynamics. They are so cold toward each other that I fail to connect with them.

The 100 Season 2 Episode 8 Review: Spacewalker

I guess I am one of the few people sad to see Finn die. I really liked his charector and I am not keen on the Clarke, Bellamy pairing. While I get that killing is wrong, no one is innocent of that in all the sectors. It was kill or be killed with the whole grounders army attacking a group of teenagers who were just trying to survive without trying to understand what was happening with them or if they posed any danger to them as a people. This also leaves me wondering if there is not enough land to accommodate returning races who had previously abandoned earth because of the bombing. This is supposed to be post apocalyptic world with reduced population. In my opinion the grounders set the whole killing spree into motion because they started the attacks and should at least partly take responsibility for the death of their people. After all if the 100 hadn't taken a stand to fight for their lives, they would have all died. I hoped that by mid season finale, the different sectors would have started to take steps towards realising that they all had a part to play in the way things unfolded to find a way forward.

I love the young Greer (Emrhys Cooper). I swear he sound exactly like Ewan McGregor. Even sort of looks like him. He has a new fan. :)

This is by no means a complaint, but Finn's death does serve to forward Clarke's character development, which is pretty much the plot of every 'man-pain' story ever written. Interesting reversal here.

Yes, it seems that was Finn's only purpose this season. And good point!

Thanks! It's not a perfect analogy--Finn had waaaaay more character development than most of the women who are fridged as a plot device and I think there was a at least a definite intention on the writer's part to bring his story full circle--but it will definitely be interesting to see where Clarke goes from here.

NCIS Season 12 Episode 10 Review: House Rules

I have to say I enjoyed the show immensely. It kept my interest and I like the way we were in McGee's apartment as he wrote an endearing letter to his father; stating that he had a better understanding what his father's went through raising him and loved him. It was a real tearjerker that Sean Murray accomplished splendidly.

Alice said it well: "I’m very disturbed about the show’s direction right now. This isn’t even a figment of the show I fell in love with. The writers have gone completely mad. What do I want to see in 2015? Supernatural become a watchable sci-fi show again."
I want a show about Sam and Dean Winchester; not episodes written specifically for every character that ever appeared once on the show. If the writers have no interest in the show and no interest in the genre, and the two actors only want to work part-time, then they need to wrap the show up. I was so excited for S10 over the summer. The last thing I expected was a weekly soap starring a different obscure character every week. WTH!!!

The 100 Season 2 Episode 8 Review: Spacewalker

THE 100 IS THE BEST TV SHOW. It would have been wrong if they saved Finn, he killed 18 innocent people, but somehow I found myself hoping he'd be saved. I thot they'd take him to mount weather to seek refuge or something, I really was hoping for a twist that would spare his life but alas, it had to be done. My heart was racing when Clarke went to see Lexa, I thot for sure she was gonna slit her throat and the episode would end there, it would have been a crazy cliffhanger, but no, she didnt. Well, its done, I dunno how Raven's gonna recover from this, but I think she'll come around eventually. Maybe, they should get her a new love interest. I'm not even worried the least about the 47 or 46, since one of them is currently being drilled. Those last minutes were very intense. the mid-season finale was perfect.
