The 100: A Post-Apocalyptic World Without Rape

Rape is an extremely common plot device in the current television landscape. While some shows handle it with great care and intentionality, it is more often filmed to titillate the male gaze, raise the stakes, demonstrate how evil the villain is, provide motivation for a male hero, or make a woman character more likeable. Lately,… Read more »

San Diego Comic Con 2015 Roundup

Hello, fandom friends! Well, the Nerd Olympics (or a better analogy) is over for this year. Time for us all — or, more accurately, the ones who were lucky enough to snag tickets — to retreat back into the Internet. Perhaps to come out again at New York Comic Con. Perhaps only to peek our… Read more »

Mad Max, Mr. Robot, And A New Kind of Superhero

Hollywood spends a lot of time shilling superhero narratives at us, and, like many Americans, I consume these stories with gluttonous enthusiasm. Arrow is my favorite show. I have seen all of the Marvel universe movies (except Thor 2). And I am ready to adore CBS’ Supergirl in a completely unironic way. That being said,… Read more »

5 Ways Syfy’s New Space Drama Killjoys Will Ease Your Firefly Heartache

Have you checked out Syfy’s space bounty hunter drama Killjoys? Though the series’ pilot is a little clunky, the show is a lot of fun — and it’s doing a lot to fill the Firefly-shaped hole still festering away in my TV-loving heart. Don’t get me wrong: Killjoys is not doing the exact same thing… Read more »

Dark Matter Series Premiere Gif-Cap: “Ugh. Are You Sure?”

Oh no!  Life support systems are down!  The ship wakes up its frozen inhabitants.

Game of Thrones Season 5 Finale Recap: “Mother’s Mercy”

It’s hard to believe Game of Thrones season 5 has already ended. Probably because, until the last few episodes, pretty much nothing happened. But we finally have a lot to talk about, so we better get to it… First of all, Stannis. His wife kills herself after letting her daughter be sacrificed (women are emotional and… Read more »

Watched, Read, Wrote: TV Circa June 13, 2015

I spend way too much time getting down on myself about the TV episodes I haven’t gotten around to watching, the think pieces I have yet to read, and the sure-to-be pop culture-shattering articles I have yet to move from my brain to the screen. Call it fandom-related FOMO. Call it the insatiable desire to succeed we Millennials… Read more »

The Fosters Season 3 Premiere Recap: “Wreckage”

And… they’re back! Who’s excited? I know I am. I really do miss The Fosters when they’re not around. There’s something about this wholesome drama that adds to my life and makes me feel like everything will be alright. Glad to have you back, friends. Let’s start with the obvious: I told you so —… Read more »

Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 9 Recap: “The Dance of Dragons”

Well, it’s finally happening. The season is getting a bit interesting. Obviously it’s also almost over, but you know, it’s better (really) late than never. Remember how I said Stannis is the worst? I think now it’s pretty well established. Ramsay’s little plan was apparently to sneak into Stannis’ camp and just burn all the food… Read more »

    Shows You Should Have Been Watching: Britain’s Party Animals

    Sometimes, Netflix wears me down, catches me off guard, and convinces me to watch a show it has been peddling at me for months. In this case, that show was Party Animals, an unfortunately-titled 2007 BBC Two drama that follows fictional researchers, lobbyists, and MPs behind-the-scenes of the British Parliament. I have no shame in admitting… Read more »

    Arrow Season 3, Episode 14 Recap: “The Return”

    Arrow’s Season 3 finally has some new life breathed into it. These past two episodes have been a confident, cohesive return-to-form for the superhero show, which struggled after a strong start to the season. No, it wasn’t Oliver’s almost-death and brief absence from Starling City that brought this show back to life. (Though somewhat successful,… Read more »

    Arrow Mid-Season Finale Recap: “The Climb”

    What did I think of Arrow‘s mid-season finale, “The Climb”? This show just took the first step — dare I say ascent? — in reclaiming the narrative energy that’s dwindled from the Season 2 ending/Season 3 opener. I have this theory about full-order network shows: they don’t really get started until the mid-season finale. Hopefully, you can have some… Read more »

    The Lizzie Bennet Diaries And Transmedia Storytelling

    Guys, I’m in love — with transmedia storytelling. Yes, I know I am a little behind the Internet times on this one, but what I lack in timeliness I make up for in raw enthusiasm. Right now, the apple of my eye is Pemberley Digital — aka the adaptation of classic Austen novels into vlog-style web series… Read more »
