“Welcome to Purgatory” – Wynonna Earp 1×01

WELogoI’m gonna be honest – for anybody interested in women-positive and/or queer-positive television, 2016 has been, in short, devastatingly awful. But thanks to Emily Andras of Lost Girl fame and her SyFy series Wynonna Earp, I’m happy to say we got at least one bright spot. I’m also happy to share my fun with you in this rewatch-recap series. Needless to say, MEGA-SPOILERS ahead. Continue reading

Candles and Sin – Season 3, Episode 6, “Bitter Harvest”

lexacandlesThe fandom this week had absolutely zero chill. Things quickly went from zero to a million hilarious memes about Lexa’s candle collection, to off-the-charts speculation about potential smut on the show (and beyond), which degenerated into Sin Day, which we shall never speak of again. And generally there was a lot of speculation about a possible kiss between Clarke and Lexa because the night episode 6 aired was the one-year anniversary since the fateful kiss that launched a million gifs. Turns out no kiss, but we did get the drawing scene. And apparently there was a lot of ugly hate on twitter, but I don’t venture on there often.

The Rollercoaster Descends – Season 3, Episode 5, “Hakeldama”

What this episode lacks in death duels and cute nightgown repartee, it makes up for in important plot advancement. We need that sometimes – like working out or taking gross medicine or eating kale – as much as we don’t actually want it. I’ll do my best to keep things light, despite the less-than-hilarious nature of this episode. I mean, it’s The 100. It’s gonna be dark sometimes. Continue reading

Buckle Up, Y’all – Season 3, Episode 4, “Watch the Thrones”

Well, in case you thought the intensity of Season 3 would slow down, think again. I’m afraid it might have just started, if Ep 4 is any indication. Buckle your seatbelts, friends. Some major skrish is about to go down. That’s Trigedasleng for “shit” incidentally. I will not pretend to not be a ridiculous nerd for this show. It had me at “space station” and “ruined Earth.” The gay stuff has just been really unexpected, delightful icing on the cake. Continue reading

The Bow™ – Season 3, Episode 3, “Ye Who Enter Here”

Well, after last week’s explosive ending, I am so ready for this week. Or am I? Turns out I was totally unprepared. We start where we left off last week, in Polis tower. Clarke stares out the window. Lexa enters. Clarke turns to glare at her, “What part of I won’t see you was unclear?” Continue reading
