EPISODE REVIEW: The 100: “Earth Skills” (Episode 2)

Kevin Long's picture

Sorry for the delay in reviewing this. I’ve had 3 doctors appointments in 2 days.

Anyway: We pick up exactly where we left off last week, with Jasper being run through with a spear, and the rest of team Clarke hauling ass away. Despite being clearly dead last week, Jasper isn’t dead this week, and they hear him scream. Rather than going to get him, they head back to the landing site for reinforcements (Probably a good move)

EPISODE REVIEW: Cosmos – A Spacetime Odyssey: “When Knowledge Conquered Fear” (Episode 3)

This episode bugged me a little bit for philosophical reasons I’ll get to a little later. Consider this full disclosure, so if I’m a little dour in this review you’ll know where it’s coming from.

EPISODE REVIEW: The 100: “Pilot” (Episode 1)

Kevin Long's picture

The latest entry in The CW network’s Angsty Teen High Concept Sweepstakes is “The 100.” Premise: 100 years after a nuclear war, the only survivors of humanity live in a space station called “The Ark.” As an attempt to find out if the earth is now viable for human habitation, they drop 100 impossibly attractive juvenile offenders on death row. The kids are expendable.

Well, at least there’s no vampires for a change.

EPISODE REVIEW: Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey: “Some of the Things That Molecules Do” (Episode 2)

Last week I mostly bitched and moaned about how the Cosmos of 2014 wasn’t as good as the Cosmos of 1980. I expressed my disappointment at the music, the pacing, the lame design of the “Spaceship of the Imagination,” and the general lack of wonder and awe.

EPISODE REVIEW: Cosmos – A Spacetime Odyssey: “Standing up in the Milky Way” (Episode 1)

Thanks to Ganesha, I became aware that a sequel to Carl Sagan’s seminal “Cosmos” was going to premier last night (Sunday), on Fox of all places. My first impression was, “What, has Seth McFarlane run out of off-color gags?” But, no, that'll never happen. Seth is actually one of the producers of this, oddly enough. Also, Brannon Braga, “The Man Who Killed Star Trek,” is a producer. Disconcerting. On the other hand, it starred Neil DeGrasse-Tyson as our host/narrator, so, you know, not entirely without promise.

Stargate: SG1 Season 1 Review

Republibot 3.0's picture

What with the “Stargate” franchise being dead for the foreseeable future, and since my older kids kinda’ like it, It thought now was as good a time as any to review the series. I’d always wanted to do it in chronological order, but I never have. Also, there are a metric ton of SG1 episodes I’ve never seen, and a lot of SGA eps as well. I really didn’t start watching until it was on Syfy (Then called “Skiffy”), and while they endlessly repeated the earlier eps, I never made an effort to catch up.

RETROSPECULATIVE TV: Macross II: “Ishtar” (Episode 2)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Back on earth following the Zentradi attack, Hibiki stashes the hot fan service girl with his creepy transexual friend “Mash,“ then heads to the network and turns over the footage Dennis shot to his boss. He’s informed that there’s a blackout on coverage of the battle until the UN Spacey makes an official statement. Hibiki rolls with this.

Hi, I’m new here to Republibot and I’ll be reviewing Green Lantern The Animated Series since there haven’t been any reviews for the episodes after R3’s review for episode 3.

RETROSPECULATIVE TV: The Tick: What have We Learned?

Republibot 3.0's picture

Since I've been working on "B5" reviews for such a long time, it's been a while since we've actually *finished* a series. When we do finish one, however, we like to do a little overview, reflecting on the series as a whole, and deciding what we think of it, good or bad, reflecting on its many merits or weak spots. It's a time for introspection and judicious artistic criticism. Usually. In this case, though, the show just sucks so there's no need for that.
