I had to write a brief review about season 5 of the 100 (the CW) after joining the Afterbuzztv panel. Eden and Red Queen are the framework with a time jump of six years, shocking death of a ‘beloved’ character AND meeting new sky people. Taylor Gates, Sayrie and myself round out the all new panel.
The CW Writers Room has me shook with the aftermath of Praimfaya and trouble in the bunker. Who would’t go a little crazy with the barren wasteland, no food and being alone for years? Clarke well she’s Clarke always trying to find someone to rescue but did she REALLY have to kill the buzzard that led her to Eden (that was a jerk move girl). I found her equally pragmatic mini-me a great addition for her. She’s a independent wild child who (rightly so) fears random stranger and has to protect herself. Clarke being wounded (less of a threat) the only way the half wildling would ever get close enough to eventually become a family unit. I especially liked the cross over of the two episodes with Clarke trying to get in and the bunker dwellers realizing they were trapped. It set up the tribes going to war for limited resources and the sky people (as usual) feeling superior. I did like that Octavia likely will include Niylah in her inner circle because that woman knows marketing! I had wondered if Jaha was going to survive the bunker and it turns out .. not so much. I was shocked that he died but rather you liked Jaha or not he has ALWAYS been concerned with humanity’s survival so he went out educating Octavia about the hard choices leaders have to make over life and death.
I was beyond impressed with the two episodes and getting to know the new sky people. I’m curious when everyone will be back on Earth, what will happen to the crew when they go to the prison ship, and how they will get out of the bunker! I’ll be watching every Tuesday and make sure you watch our Afterbuzztv Panel on Tuesdays (we are at 11PM but will move to 10PM in a few weeks)!

Everything is fun and games till the sharks turn on you! <guffaw> I must admit I LOVED Deep Blue Sea when I saw it with friends at the Cinemadome and we laughed like hyenas! It was and still is the funniest horror movie I’ve ever seen so let me be the first to say … am ready to watch this with a bowl of hot buttered popcorn and a soda (no brand preference).
Has humanity learned nothing about making sharks super smart? What next giving them legs so they can terrorize us on land next (just kidding sharks rarely attack humans)? Well it looks like we haven’t because a new mad genius has decided to improve on the sea killing machines that haven’t changed all that much since the time of dinosaurs. Deep Blue Sea 2 will be released on April 17, 2018 on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack ($24.98 SRP), DVD ($19.98 SRP) and Digital. The Blu-ray™ Combo Pack features the film in hi-definition, a standard definition DVD and a digital version of the film and will be rated R for gore, violence, language and general mayhem!
Deep Blue Sea 2, shark conservationist Dr. Misty Calhoun (Danielle Savre) is invited to consult on a new, top secret project run by pharmaceutical billionaire Carl Durant (Michael Beach). She believes the project, performed at a remote, sea-based facility, focuses on extracting shark antibodies to help work toward cures for human diseases. However, Dr. Calhoun is shocked to learn that the company is using unpredictable bull sharks as its test subjects, and Durant has bio-engineered a shiver of highly intelligent, super-aggressive bull sharks. When science meddles with the time-tested process of nature and nurture, the outcome can be deadly. The film is directed by two-time Independent Spirit Award nominee Darin Scott (Menace II Society, To Sleep With Anger), and written by Hans Rodionoff (Lost Boys: The Tribe) and award-winning writing partners Jessica Scott & Eric Patterson (Another Cinderella Story). Tom Keniston (Sophia Grace & Rosie’s Royal Adventure) serves as executive producer, and Tom Siegrist (Santa’s Little Helper, The Exorcism of Molly Hartley) is the film’s producer.
Rounding out the cast are Danielle Savre (Heroes, Boogeyman 2) in the lead role of shark conservationist Dr. Misty Calhoun; Rob Mayes (John Dies at the End, Mistresses) as Trent Slater, a highly decorated ex-Navy SEAL; and Michael Beach (Third Watch, The 100, upcoming Aquaman) as Carl Durant, a big pharma billionaire with questionable ethics. Rounding out the cast is Nathan Lynn (Outlander) as tech expert Aaron Ellroy, Kim Syster (Sterlopers) as neurobiologist Leslie Kim, and Jeremy Jess Boado (House Party: Tonight’s the Night) as clinical neurophysiologist Daniel Kim.
“Deep Blue Sea 2 is a true sequel, staying within the mythology of the original film, and taking the next step in the evolution of the sharks … and their human counterparts,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WBHE, Vice President, TV Marketing, Family & Animation. “This time, there’s more perspective from the sharks, giving greater personality to the ‘villains’ in this film. It’s a thrill ride that will keep the audience guessing throughout.”

The annual MTV Fandom Award show is airing July 24 8/7 C time in San Diego. It’s an award show that gives fangirls and boys the chance to vote for the best fandoms and best ships. Some of the categories are Ship of the Year, Animation Fandom of the Year, and Bandom of the Year.
I of course am very excited for the Ship of the Year category because I am a huge shipper, I ship everyone and everything. For people who don’t know what shipping is, shipping is when you want two or more people to end up together canon or noncanon. Sadly, my all time favorite ship, Kylux, is not featured, but Stormpilot is so that makes up for the lost. But there are other exciting categories; even Jon Snow’s resurrection is featured along with Han Solo’s death (sad face).

So as we all know it’s that time of the year again: San Diego Comic-Con. Warner Bros. Television’s have released official comic con 2016 interactive bags coming in 18 awesome designs for fans to collect their swag in. The bags now feature an interactive component through the Blippar app, which unlocks an augmented reality experience. Ian Somerhalder of the Vampire Diaries displays how to use the app with the bag.
More than 135000 bags will be released to Comic-Con attendees and the designs featured on the bags are inspired from hit shows and upcoming films Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, The 100, Arrow, The Big Bang theory, Blindspot, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Gotham, iZOMBIE, Suicide Squad, Lucifer, Supergirl, Supernatural, and a combo bag featuring The Originals and The Vampire Diaries.
I want the Vampire Diaries/the Original Bag and hope Cherry will grab me one AND get it signed by the cast <hint hint>
Are you attending San Diego Comic Con 2016? Tell us what bag do you hope to grab and why? What’s your favorite WB TV show? Leave a comment below and post your bag on twitter with #WBSDCC #WBSDCCBag.
As a TVD and Originals superfan I automatically go to the combo bag featuring both shows. I mean who wouldn’t love a bag featuring Ian Somerhalder or Joesph Morgan. The front features a combined image of infamous V and O intermingled. And when you lift the cover on top there is an image of Stefan and Damon Salvatore and on the bottom features an image of the Originals’ squad. The bag showcases the darkness of each show by excluding the bright colors from the bag. All of the bags are aesthetically pleasing especially the Teen Titans Go!, Vixen, and DCS LEGENDS of TOMORROW.
All of the bags have three panels of artwork, designed by Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Marketing. One side of the bag features a velcro-fastened cover flap featuring a classic show-related image that opens to show a unique show-related design and the back of the bag includes the new Comic-Con 2016 design.
