A Negative Review: The 100 S01E01 (pilot) Sucks

Pic related: actual science-fiction

What do you get when you combine terrible science-fiction with terrible fantasy romance? The 100, apparently – it's the type of show that follows the Twilight phenomenon of turning previously niche genres into something for the masses by removing all the interesting and distinguishing characteristics of said genres; in this case, it's taking science-fiction and turning it into a high school drama. Indeed, in The 100, Earth has been ravaged by a nuclear war, and 97 years after the planet has been abandoned by its 4,000 survivors, a group of 100 delinquent teenagers is sent as a science experiment of sorts in order for the powers that be aboard the mothership/space station to find out if Earth is now habitable. In and of itself, this premise is quite interesting, but unfortunately, the show entirely fails to deliver.

A Negative Review: The Walking Dead S04E13 "Alone" Sucks

I'm not going to bother with an excuse

So I guess at this point, the writers are trying to reduce the fan base of this show intentionally. There are just so many things wrong that it's almost hopeless to try to list them all – but in brief, it's that characters keep doing things contrary to what rudimentary logic would dictate, and that The Walking Dead is no longer post-apocalyptic horror. I have no idea what is going on with this show anymore.

A Negative Review: The Walking Dead S04E12 "Still" Sucks

Exhaustive list of imperfections: terrible actress

The most recent episode of The Walking Dead was by far the worst episode to have aired, and as it stands, I don't see things improving any time soon. In brief, the plot of the episode is as follows: some dumb, spoiled girl that no one cares about goes around looking for her first drink, to be shared with the guy whose dick she wants more fiercely than a typical zombie wants brains. Oh yeah, also, guys, Beth can totally take care of herself! LOOK! A ZOMBIE! Wow, how incredible, Beth killed it! Guys!
