The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 9 “What Happened and What’s Going on” Review

Five and a half seasons in, The Walking Dead shows us something new in its visual style and in handling the death of another major character in as many episodes.  Described by Director Greg Nicotero as Terrence Malick-esque, the mid-season premiere in certain scenes had a hallucinogenic, dream-like quality with a character straddling the afterlife and the living world.  “What Happened and What’s Going on” is a confident episode that marries an introspective reflection from a person facing death and the survival horror thrills the show is known for.

Everything after the break will contain full spoilers and a discussion of The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 9.

The 100 Season 1 Review: Five Reasons You Should Watch This Show

The100 Calling Ark Station

The 100 Season 1 Review (Spoiler Free)
Five Reasons You Should Watch This Show

From The Hunger Games to The Maze Runner, many young adult dystopian novels have been adapted into movies.  So while it’s not unexpected for television networks to jump aboard this popular trend, it is a refreshing surprise that The 100 is totally awesome!

One of the reasons The 100 stands out is how the series puts its own spin on familiar elements from sci-fi dystopian and post-apocalyptic drama genres. The premise starts off as Lord Of The Flies meets Lost, but by the end of episode 3 The 100 goes for the gut punch and in doing so, begins to develop its own identity within the genre.

This post is a spoiler free introduction to The 100. Here are Five Reasons You Should Watch This Show:

#1. Gritty Premise Packs A Mean Punch

The 100 strikes a nice balance between high stakes adventure and a gritty survival thriller, never becoming too bleak or despairing to watch. Taking place 97 years after a nuclear apocalypse devastates Earth, the last remnants of humanity, about 2400 people, live aboard a deteriorating space station named “The Ark” where any crime committed by an adult is a capital offense. 

Due to the lack of life sustaining resources on the Ark, 100 juvenile delinquents are sent down on a one way trip to Earth to determine if the planet has become habitable.

Community Links & News: Five Not So Random Things I’m Looking Forward To This Year

Tom Hardy In Mad Max: Fury Road

Yawn! I feel like a bear coming out of hibernation. Truth is, this blog’s inactivity over the last month is mainly because I wasn’t feeling inspired to write anything. I felt like I hit a wall and needed to consider if there was a future for this blog.

I’m grateful for your friendly support and words of encouragement. A belated and sincere Happy & Healthy New Year to all you gentle readers and fellow bloggers!

I’ll keep this post short and sweet. Here are some things I’m looking forward to in 2015, some are just based on my gut instinct.

Mad Max: Fury Road. To be honest, I’ve never seen a Mad Max film. But Tom Hardy looks so bad-ass in the above photo and I’m a sucker for gritty, action-packed post-apocalyptic movies.

• Batman: Arkham Knight.  I don’t have a next gen system yet. Maybe this is the year? Arkham Asylum and Arkham City are the best Batman games out there and I’m glad that Rocksteady Studios is making this installment of the franchise.

Game Of Thrones Season V.  Hands down my favourite show on the air. Can’t wait to see the adventures that await Arya, Tyrion and Daenerys this season.

The Flash Series Premiere Review

CW’s The Flash 2014 TV Series: Spoiler Free Pilot Review

The opening scene to The Flash (8 pm, Tuesdays on CW) tells us exactly the kind of television show it is. It’s a fun, contemporary super hero series that asks the audience to believe that the impossible can be possible, if only for the next hour.

The Flash doesn’t set out to redefine the genre which is not a bad thing at all. The show embraces its comic book origins in a way that is accessible to new and old fans alike.

What sets The Flash apart from other comic book based shows such as Gotham, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and even Arrow is that its lead character has super powers. It’s refreshing that while the amazing feats of The Flash aka Barry Allen are not grounded in realism, his personality and emotional reactions feel genuine.
