The 100 Season 2 Episode 1 Review: The 48

Well now we know why Lincoln is called Lincoln his village is the Lincoln Memorial - or did anyone else get that? Sort of "Planet of the Apes".

Powerful episode.................. It should not have mattered how many porn films the girl had done and it is a travesty that in the end it did matter.........NO MEANS NO..............

i agree with you,
But like Fin said, when you're a porn star, people outside don't disassociate reality from fiction, they don't give the benefit of the doubt. I think that's why Barba didn't initially want to take the case, because sex workers (prostitutes, pornstars) are never treated fairly and with impartiality. Take Christy Mack, the porn star who was beaten within an inch of her life by her ex-boyfriend (an MMA fighter). I read some comments saying because she's a pornstar, she deserves it. It disgusts me. I'm French by the way.

The 100 Season 2 Episode 1 Review: The 48

I'm so happy to have the show back and I loved getting to see everyone in this episode but this episode made me so mad or well I guess irritated. First at mount weather I was so happy to see Clarke not trust them and I kept thinking they would talk her into thinking they're good and she wouldn't question them anymore but no she's srill questioning them and definitely doesn't believe or trust them but it looks like now she'll play along and be more secretive about her suspicions. I was getting mad that no one else questioned it especially jasper and monty. Jasper asked Clarke "why would they lie to us?" Well my first thought was "why wouldn't they lie to you." I mean come on. I don't trust them for a second so i hope Clarke will continue to question them and hopefully found out what they're really up to and find a way out of there. The second thing that bothered me was kane. I was so excited to see him show up and killher the grounder and save Bellamy and Finn but that quickly went away as he decided to take order and he arrested Bellamy for beating Murphy. He told Bellamy he wasn't incharge anymore and that they were acting like animals. That's the part that really got me because murphy killed 2 of there own, shot raven, and tried to kill Bellamy and coming from the guy that's floated people for less says that it's not right and arrests Bellamy for punching him a few times. He said Bellamy wasn't incharge anymore well news flash neither are you. Bellamy was a much better leader and kept there people alive and knows about the ground way more than kane but now that the ark is here they're in charge and make the rules again and are totally jerks. Come on! That made me so mad. The only thing that really didn't make me mad was Lincoln and Octavia and that's because I love them. They're my favorite characters and my favorite couple. I just love them together. So my hopes for this season are that kane stops being such an ass and they don't run things anymore and Bellamy gets back to being incharge, that Clarke escaped mount weather and finds out what's really going on there, and that Lincoln and Octavia make it and are together. I want them all back together like in season one and I don't want the stupid soldiers/grown ups in charge and making the rules.

Clearly I'm alone here but I enjoyed the episode and found the review to be a bit harsh. Yes, everything about Borin's actions bugged me in this. and Yes, Gibbs was the superman and I do wish they'd let it be more team effort than that but I've so long been used to that with NCIS as it's no different than the many, many years of Ziva being the lone wonderwoman and portrayed as the only competent one that I've come to expect it. But in this ep I saw a writer who did a better job of letting everyone have their competent moment and work better as a team with everyone having something to contribute and doing so in a fresh surrounding. It's not a 6 hour miniseries. They have 42 minutes to accomplish character, plot, humor, drama, mystery, resolution all while fitting in 8 different regular characters on top of the bad guys and bit players ... so I'm happy to cut them some slack. I think they still do the best job of mixing all those ingredients into one show than anyone else. If I'm looking for comedy, I'll go to TBBT but there won't be much else of substance but giggles. If I'm looking for fully plotted mystery, I'll go to Criminal Minds but don't expect the light-hearted moments or character time and I've got to be prepared to stay an extended amount of time wallowing in depravity without much reprieve. NCIS can integrate the multi facets better than any other show except maybe GOT but that's a completely different animal. And I personally like that they're showing Bishop as a Probie and the steps she has to take. When McGee started he was no field agent either. He's had to learn and grow into it over time. When Ziva started she was cold-blooded lacking empathy and perspective and little more than a killer, not an investigator or even familiar with the American laws or legal system. She had her things to learn too, (though she never believed it). Difference is Bishop and McGee acknowledged they didn't know it all and had room to learn and improve. My point is it's entertainment. If you go in expecting only to see negative, you will certainly see it and nothing else. Sometimes it seems like some reviewers are watching for no other reason than to have ammunition to lob to tear it down the second a review goes up. So your favorite ninja left you. There's still a lot of other things to enjoy about NCIS. And if you don't find that to be the case, there's a lot of other free channels and paid channels out there. Go forth and explore. Geez. Life is too short to sit in front of a made-up environment that you hate.

I said it before, and I will respectfully say it again; for 8 years the sane thing was asked of those who only came on these pages to post their weekly Ziva gripe. This is not something new that has only just begun with Bishop. Heck, Ziva and Cote bashing is still going on. While I was a huge Ziva fan, I like Bishop and I am adjusting to her. If I didn't like her, I wouldn't come here to complain about her but others will just as anti Ziva people did for years. Telling people to change the channel and to stop watching won't change a thing, believe me. And people need to remember that not every Ziva lover is a Bishop hater nor is every Ziva hater automatically a Bishop fan. But as I have said before this debate will continue on until the show is off the air.

Even though we disagree on this episode, I think what you wrote was well-said. There are indeed only a few minutes (comparatively speaking) to develop an entire story, when compared to a miniseries or a movie - and there is only so much they can do.

Laurel as any vigilante is unbelievable, they really need to give her more acting lessons, she comes off as stiff and a bit fake. The best scenes Laurel had were the first episodes of season 1, she didn't look like she was trying too hard.
Wild Cat is one hot teacher, I predict Laurel will be sleeping with him in three episodes or less.
Thea has something up her sleeve, she already looks badass (take note Laurel)
Felicity and Ray are going to make a good team, but yes what are his plans for the top secret plans.

I disagree. Katie Cassidy looks damn fine, but her acting is definitely sub-par. Haven't been able to connect to her character at all this season because most of her scenes are just laughable. That Sara death scene, oh god; I wanted to cry because one of my favourite characters just got killed, but I couldn't because Laurel's cry was so unbelievable, I couldn't help but giggle. Liking this new, kick-ass Thea, though I do question just a teensy little bit how she picked up everything so quickly. Then again, Malcolm was her teacher so... hm. I hope he shows up more as the season progresses; I'm always intrigued by him. Lastly... SO SO SO keen to see Felicity in The Flash next episode! Her and Barry have such a fun, cute chemistry that makes me smile.

Katie Cassidy is a fine actress. Are you sure you're not angry over show developments? She did great tonight and it was perfectly plausible that she would want to go in this direction. What's unbelievable?

Arrow Season 3 Episode 3 Review: Corto Maltese

This episode was "eh" not bad but not great. Glad to see Thea back bc Willa is my celebrity crush, but is it me or does it seem like she aged a year or 2 ? Her voice is deeper & her face looks more defined as a woman. But I'm happy they showed her training with swords, even though it looked like the one sword was to heavy for her when she was sparring with Malcom, I know the show is called "Arrow" but that doesn't mean everyon had to use a bow & arrow. Still wonder what the writers are going to do with Thea though. I forget but Does Oliver know that Malcom is alive ? Or does he believe that Thea some how got a mansion in a foreign country on her own ? The boxer who will eventually become Wildcat & train Laural was pretty cool & everything else was alright. Next week looks like a good one.

Younger actors definitely mature in the off season. :-) I'm excited to see where the writers are taking Thea, as before now she's only been window dressing.

Ronald simkins

You're right this was and episode that probably sets off a whole bunch branches into the future. This is a believable start for Laurel's development and she certainly picked a hot mentor. I am also glad that Roy and Thea had some closure - from rumblings previously I thought that Thea and Roy would be total enemies, They aren't going to be buddies but I don't think she's going to be trying to kill him. Loved Felicity's new position she deserves it and I don't think that Ray is researching weapons for his own use but to find out what has really been going on in Queen enterprises that Oliver didn't know about. Next weeks Flash looks fabu with Felicity and her buddy Barry.

@ isoron

I never thought about Ray looking into what was going on while Oliver was gone. Good call!

I love the show The Mentalist, I am sad that this is the final season, I have followed since day one. I am happy to watch the older reruns that they show. I will forever be a Patrick Jane fan.

Criminal Minds Season 10 Episode 1 Review: X

Not loving JLH on CM. Didn't like Blake either, they need to bring Paget Brewster back, she was a terrific fit. JLH is not the greatest at acting, she lacks that certain something that was there when Emily Prentsis was part of the team, will watch a couple more episodes, to see if JLH grows on me, have been a fan since season 1, episode 1, but it is not holding my interest anymore. Also had a hard time when the character Elle was on, she was lacking in the acting department also.
