The 100: Red Sun Rising (2019)
Face Your Demons Already
So... That tagline of this season was introduced pretty quickly.
Intruders threaten the safety of the spaceship. Clarke and Bellamy try to deal with the consequences of the eclipse. Octavia lashes out again.
This episode was extremely intense. There were so many great moments that I can't even list them and I am very excited to see where this is going.
That being said, the Clarke hate continues and so does my annoyance. Hence I keep this short so that I won't repeat myself.
New Amsterdam: Pilot (2018)
I have this rule going on for myself. If an episode of a TV-Show manages to make me feel so much for the characters that I cry, it's a 10/10 for me. This episode did not make me cry, but it did make me tear up. And I figured that's worth a 9/10.
Other than that, this show has a lot of potential. There were quite a few OMG moments in this episode and overall I thought most of the characters have the potential to be interesting. The only criticism I have is that it felt a bit too much at one point. Suddenly, loads of big things were happening simultaneously and that did strike me as a bit unrealistic.
But besides that, I am definitely intrigued and will keep watching.
The 100: Damocles: Part Two (2018)
Rise Of The Commander
My main reaction to this episode was: "AAAAAHHHH. NOOOOO. FEELS. STAAAAHP."
And yeah, that basically pulled all the way through this one.
Is it just me or does the intro prove once again how much Jarod Joseph (Miller) needs to be a series regular? Just like Sachin Sahel (Jackson), there is so much potential for them to have bigger story arcs. Give. Me. More.
But then again... All the characters deserve screentime. It was just amazing how I care about each and every one of them (with the exception of McCreary). It really makes for a lot of intense scenes. And there were A LOT.
This finale proves again how suspenseful, shocking and surprising The 100 can be. And I am so looking forward to see even more of this.
The 100: Damocles: Part One (2018)
It took me a long time to come to this point, but Clarke officially annoys the living daylights out of me. Enough is enough. I get why she is protective, but there is a line. And she crossed it tenfold.
The war itself is pretty intense. It is hard to see people fighting each other when you don't 100% know who to root for, though compared to the rest of the season, choosing sides on this one is a bit easier.
However, there were a lot of shocking but also emotional moments, that make this episode more than worth watching, proving once more that season 5 might just deserve to be considered the best season of The 100 yet.
Orange Is the New Black: Be Free (2018)
This could have been a 10/10.
The only reason why I don't give this "only" am 8/10 is because of the extremely important topics of racism this episode touches upon.
But other than that, which was extremely intense, it was kind of underwhelming. I expected more of a finale, but what I got was more of a "middle-of-the-season" episode. And that was kind of disappointing.
That said, this season was skyrocketing if you compare it to season 5. While season 6 had 2 not good first episodes, the rest caught itself pretty quickly and delivered almost what I wanted from this show.
I would have wished for more grittiness like in season 4, but this was a big step up, so I am definitely not complaining.
Another pretty solid episode. All the stories were interesting, there was not one that I wasn't invested in.
It was an okay set-up for a season finale, but I do hope something big is going to happen.
Scheming all around.
This is what I am talking about!
I want THIS from a Oitnb episode! All season long. It was perfect scheming, perfect comic relief, perfect acting... I loved it. And the final scene was so intense!
If it have had one big bang, this would be a 10/10. Let's hope for that big bang in this season's conclusion!
And I Darken...
This episode had one of the darkest and most shocking flashbacks yet due to its ruthlessness.
I was really invested in this episode as a whole, though. But I can't give it more than 8.5 points because unfortunately, it is still not up to the quality I was used to in season 2 and 4.
But it makes me hopeful for the season finale, no doubt.
The Old Ways
I am amazed at how often people fall back into their old habits on this show. And I am very annoyed by that, even though I am also very sad because I apparently care so much about them still, despite me disliking the previous season.
Now I caught the fever again.
Orange Is the New Black: Gordons (2018)
This episode features one very intense scene that actually had me choked up, because it speaks the truth.
The rest of the episode was fairly intense as well. There were quite a few scenes I really enjoyed, and the shifting loyalties make this all the more interesting.
MORE OF THIS PLEASE!
This is what I am here for!
Sure, there are still a few things that are bothering me in this show, since a few stories are obviously filler... But the last 5 minutes of this episode were amazing!
I hope they will build on that.
I'm definitely looking forward to more!
I was kind of disgusted by this episode, which was kind of intentional though... And I know that immature humour has always been part of this show, so it's nothing new, but I am just not a huge fan of that kind of humour... So that whole "crappy" situation fell kind of flat for me...
However, the rest of the drama between the inmates, the flashbacks and the scenes outside with Aleida were definitely interesting! So I am kind of torn when it comes to this episode.
I was not bored, but it definitely could have been better.
This was not the best episode so far, but one of the better ones. All the stories were solid, with one or two exceptions, but the one that confused me the most was Pennsatucky's. I still have no clue about what the message in that one is supposed to be.
Other than that, I really did enjoy the scenes with Frieda and Suzanne, as well as Nicky and Lorna. Piper is still annoying, though.
Towards the end, there were a few intense scenes, (minor spoiler) like the killing of a small animal (end spoiler), and of course several scenes happening to our favorite inmates, so it was definitely interesting enough for me to keep watching.
But it does creep up on me that I wish that the show will end after season 7. It just seems like the show reached it's full potential. Its best to end it while it is (hopefully) still good.
Okay, first of all: This "reveal" in the beginning was so obvious, that it wasn't even a reveal. As soon as the "mystery" was started in the first episode of this season, everybody knew what was going on. So honestly, this was absolutely boring and unnecessary. Just to get this out of the way.
Other than that, I really enjoyed this episode! It was the best so far. All the intrigue, the character development (in most cases), and the suspense... It was pretty intense. Now this season hooked me. I am definitely looking forward to the rest! Please keep this quality up!
Of course, there have been a few frustrating scenes, I am not going to deny that. But that's part of OITNB. And it's intentional. So, once again: Great episode.
So... This episode starts with letting a story line fall that could have been one of the most interesting this season... Which means, we are off to a good start. Not.
Piper is just so freaking stupid, she is definitely on my bad side for good now. I can't even take how all of her is just focused on one single topic without focusing on anything else. She is so self-obsorbed, I am just done with her.
But, for the record, I did definitely enjoy the rest of this episode a lot. The flashbacks we had, and the scheming and intrigue happening overall... It was very good. I hope this season will continue to get better. I want this show to be good like season 2 and season 4 were. And I want to forget about season 5 REAL quick.
Season 5 was already a huge disappointment for me. It was so far behind of what the story could have been, so I just did not enjoy it. But I hoped that this season could make it all better again.
This season premiere though did not do it for me. It felt disconnected, violence seemed to be thrown in without a real purpose, characters seemed like jerks just because they can (which gets tiring at this point - I enjoyed Piscatella for the reason that he actually was a fleshed out character).
But hey, not all hope is lost. There is still 12 episodes left. Maybe it was just this season premiere that did not hit the spot, but the rest of the season will.
We will see.
The 100: The Dark Year (2018)
So, this review is going to consist of two parts. First, my non-spoilery review, and after that, a spoiler discussion/reaction about the episode.
This was an intense and disturbing episode. The more that was revealed about the Dark Year, the more shocked I was. The plots tied in perfectly with each other, and the episode ended at a really intense situation, that has me scared for the next two episodes. As of right now, this is probably my favorite season of the whole show. Who knew that a show, whichs 3rd season I hated, could catch itself in such an amazing manner and have me at the edge of my seat the whole time? I am most certainly impressed.
The acting of everyone was top notch. There is not much more I can say to this, without going into spoiler territory.
But I definitely recommend watching this episode. This season in general. It is just an amazing journey.
(SPOILER FROM THIS POINT FORWARD!) As soon as the "previously on The 100" started playing, I had to pause to get some food. Because I don't think I would have survived it otherwise. Even then, I wasn't ready to start the episode. But once I started, I immediately regretted the food part, due to Abbie vomiting. Which was delightful. As soon as McCreary walked in to the room where Clarke and Madi just tried to save Abbie, I thought now it would escalate. But it didn't. They somehow had a casual conversation in the next scene and I was just like "???". So yeah. I mean, of course, he spilled some threats and everything. But I would have expected him to immediately get rid of the two.
The Murphy - Raven - Shaw dynamic is amazing and I want a million more scenes of that please.
One thing that starts to bother me is Clarke kind of not giving a damn about anyone else... I mean, I do understand her motivations, but I would have liked to at least see more remorse or inner conflict from her.
It was obvious that they resorted to cannibalism in the dark year, but I was surprised to see it reavealed that early on. It definitely made me wonder what else was in store for us this episode.
Oh, and I also want more of this Murphy, Raven, Echo and Emori dynamic. Because yes. HOWEVER How freaking stupid was that plan? AND WHY, SHAW? WHY? <-- Back when I thought they'll be captured. Then I was like: YASSSS show me them badass fighting skills!
The dinner scene was really hard to watch. I was definitely not prepared for this.
I want to use this platform to express my deepest respect and love for the character Diyoza. At first I disliked her, now she is one of my favorite characters. I really hope she survives this season.
The Bellarke family really has a rough spot this episode. I still feel bad for Octavia, even though she did a lot of stupid and gruesome things in the past few episodes. But I really held out hope for something in the Dark Year to be responsible for her actions.
I had this theory early on, which I already commented on the YouTube-Video of the promo of this episode, that I think someone was pregnant (Abby) and Octavia had to shoot the baby. At least that's what it sounded like to me. But Abby suggesting that Octavia makes it a crime not to be a cannibal was extremely rough and disturbing. And Octavia acting on it and killing those who refused was even more screwed up. I do understand the mindset, though. She wants them to survive. Without food they die. When they are starved, they are not useful anymore when they're dead, so killing them now before its too late is sort of logical. Screwed up, but logical. But it was still extremely hard to watch.
SHAW AND RAVEN KISS WAS EVERYTHING
But Kane's decision to turn against Wonkru was shocking, to be honest. It made sense. But still. I was not prepared for this. And I am not prepared for the losses we are probably going to suffer.
(NO MORE SPOILERS)
So once again, all I can say is that this is my favorite season of this show, even beating season 2 and season 4, and I cannot wait for the two part finale.
The 100: The Warriors Will (2018)
Heda vs Bloodreina
Abby is in withdrawal. Clarke continues to try and keep Madi safe. Octavia faces impossible choices.
It was really interesting to see how Octavia deals with the traitors, though I kind of saw it coming. Marie Avgeropolous continues to impress me with her acting. This season, she really blows me away every time she is on screen. I'd love to see more of that. The outcome of that situation was rather obvious too though, unfortunately. I had hoped for something more gut-wrenching. While I am mostly on Clarkes side in this situation, she did something in the beginning of the episode that felt out of character, rather reckless and dare I say stupid. The actress of Madi also does a solid job, and her story just gets more and more interesting as well. And I also do really admire Indra for her loyalty. And her courage. Her scenes were pretty good.
Overall, this was a good episode, but unfortunately not the best one yet. I am definitely looking forward to the last three episodes of this season, since the showrunner Jason Rothenberg said himself, episodes 11, 12 and 13 were his Top 3 favorite of this season. So I am expecting great things. After this season overall, I am positive the finaly will be amazing as well.
The 100: Sic Semper Tyrannis (2018)
She is an enemy of Wonkru.
Indra tries to keep Wonkru together. Bellamy struggles to do the right thing. Spacekru tries to turn the prisoners against each other.
This season continues to blow me away. I don't know how, and I don't know why this didn't happen earlier. But it is very apparent in this episode. With The 100, you don't get an easy way out. Everything is complicated. And that's what makes it so damn exciting.
I am so looking forward to the next episode. And I am very positive that this season will do nothing but continue to blow me away.
The 100: How We Get to Peace (2018)
The Things We Do For Peace.
This episode was amazing. It once again proved that nobody is entirely good or evil.
The many character moments we had in this episode were great, and I am definitely surprised of the turns some of them made. Even though it seems to be unavoidable to realize that some characters are not going to survive this season.
And one character seems to be the most likely candidate for that, but I am not going to spoil it.
I even love Dioza, even though I was convinced in season 3 and parts of season 4, that every season will be one big bad that will be put down by the end of the season, I really hope Dioza stays. Since she is not entirely bad, but also because she has a very interesting story I want to see a lot more of.
The only thing I have to complain about is that we have to wait two weeks again for the next episode. This is really starting to go on my nerves.
The 100: Acceptable Losses (2018)
Which side are you on?
Echo tries to follow through with her plan. Clarke and Monty make a terrifying discovery. Octavia schemes against Shadow Valley.
This was yet again a very good episode, showing even more character development than before. I really like all the new character interactions. But I am very conflicted about who I want to root for. Every single person has a valid point in this war. No one is entirely good or bad. (Except McCreary, but, you know, still hope for character development...) And that is exactly why I love this season so much. Every loss would hurt. Every victory would be bittersweet.
I can not wait how this continues. And thank GOODNESS that we finally get another episode next week, not two weeks later.
Sense8: Amor Vincit Omnia (2018)
Love Conquers All.
This was a perfect season 2 finale.
All the characters interacting with each other, as always, all the story lines being wrapped-up, all the callbacks to even the first episode of season 1, it was amazing.
There were a few times where it felt a bit rushed, but that was to be expected. For what they had, they really created a perfect episode.
Amor Vincit Omnia. Love Conquers All.
This show really proved it. As long as we are together, there is nothing we can't do. And I will be forever grateful for what this show taught me.
The 100: Exit Wounds (2018)
Clarke tries to keep Madi safe. Echo tries to prove herself useful. Murphy and Emori try to survive on their own.
This episode was again one of the better ones. I really enjoyed all the plotting and intrigue going on here, especially when it came to showing where each others allegiances lie.
It was a very suspenseful episode that had me at the edge of my seat several times.
I do not know how to pick one certain favorite character anymore, let alone two or three. This season is definitely starting to prove itself to be the best we have seen yet of The 100.
I do have one complain though. McCreary is still way too bland in my opinion to be particularly interesting. Still just the cut-out bad guy, no real depth to his character... I am really hoping they will go a deeper route with him after this episode.
Let's see where this goes.
The 100: Shifting Sands (2018)
Sandstorms, worms and plots
Octavia marches to war. Abby tries to prove her worth. Raven tries to help her friends.
I have to be honest and say that this was not my favorite episode. Some scenes felt very choppy. All the characters keep being interesting, with the exception of McCreary, who continues to be kind of your stereotypical bad guy. Some characters I liked before I start to dislike and vice versa. This is not necessarily critique, since it is probably wanted that way, so I am just interested where those individual story lines are going to go.
However, I really did like the ending. It really makes me look forward to what is going to come next. But until now, I unfortunately have to say that this was the weakest episode of the fifth season for me.
The Beginning of the End
Justin goes on trial while Clay and the others look for the box of polaroids and Tyler goes to a dark place.
There is so much happening in this episode. A lot of suspense, and a lot of darkness that is slowly creeping up on you. This was a really good and important episode.
