The 100: Earth Skills

Earth Skills Directed By: Dean White Written By: Jason Rothenberg The second episode of The 100 picks up right where the pilot left off: the kids running away from the river in terror after Jasper was speared through the chest from 300 yards away.

Storytelling: The Sci-Fi Fan’s ROI

Warning: Agents of SHIELD and Arrow spoilers Sci-Fi consumers are privy to a factoid casual viewers never seem to understand (or, possibly, don't care to, which is fair). We anticipate the return on fulfilling story arcs. What does this mean? By using the first two season of Agents of SHIELD, I'd like to draw out … Continue reading Storytelling: The Sci-Fi Fan’s ROI

Primeval New World: The Sound of Thunder Part 1

The series 1 finale of the original series blew my mind. And then the series 2 premiere, in which we meet Jenny Lewis, sent me into a swirling vortex of mindgasms that inextricably linked my heart to the series forevermore.

Primeval New World: Truth

SPOILER ALERT While backtracking might be my best option right now, I will point out that, given what I had to work with, I still feel like I was right (concerning my "Why I think Primeval NW failed" post). Everything I wanted from this series occurred in the last six episodes. Everything. And that is … Continue reading Primeval New World: Truth

Primeval New World: Syfy Marathon

In case you're wondering where in the world Primeval New World disappeared to the last two Saturdays, Syfy pulled its melodramatic butt from the first string lineup. As sad as it is, I understand. Ratings still conquer good drama. If no one is watching (and by no one I mean myself and >1 million others), why … Continue reading Primeval New World: Syfy Marathon
