    S05.E07: Filleted to Rest

    I can believe that her mother would cut off and never speak to a man who had disappointed her, especially if she thought he wasn't good enough for her kids. But how he could be BOTH her and Evan's father makes little sense to me. I can't imagine her mother getting pregnant to a man twice when her children don't even know who he is. She's simply too much of a control freak for that.

    What the Mum said made no sense. I thought when she talked about him "coming back" she meant when he came back to Seattle around the time Evan got hurt. I also thought she was implying it was him that saved Evan. But I always thought that Liv and Evan were several years apart. So if they had the same father then... ???

    I realised today I'm mostly watching this show because I'm curious as to when and how we'll be introduced to this season's Lever of Ethical Quandary.

    I found it interesting that this was the brain Liv hated the most, especially when she didn't seem that bad on it. It suggests she was fighting the brain from minute one, which begs the question why. And then we meet her Mum again and go: oh yeah, that's why. Judgemental perfectionist brain? This is a bit too close to home. They were assholes from scene 1 mostly. Well, maybe not Evan but his mother, yeah. I think it's a shame we didn't deal with this whole thing earlier but also that the scene wasn't about her relationship with her mother at all but about her new Plot Father.

    Wow this episode was bad. What a pile of nonsense. Just aside from the utter gobbledygook about time dilation and anomalies and that weird scene with the tree sacrifice, this society continues to make zero sense. ZERO. And on top of all of that, the dialogue was bad. Really bad. This was a poorly-written episode from beginning to end. Oh and yeah the whole Dark Commander thing is an annoying retcon

    I personally find Blaine's whole thing a bit stale. So, while I wasn't entirely glad to have an entire Blaine-centric episode, it was nice to see him get knocked down finally. He is just such scum. Any enjoyment I had in his gleeful sociopathy ended a while ago. The music gave me a few chuckles tonight. The Gambler in particular I found had a dual-purpose. Major had gambled and won this hand but was also gambling with the city as a whole and it may just be time to "know when to run".

    Also, if your solution to a social problem is "curing" everybody so the problem no longer exists then you raise some really nasty comparisons and I think the show runners are far too intelligent to go there. No matter what criticisms I have of them, they're never cheap or tonedeaf (unlike a certain other post-apocalyptic show I could name *cough* The 100 *cough*)

    The fact is, Zombie City was never going to work. It was a monumentally bad idea no matter what the idiot Chase Graves acolytes think. Taking a hard line with the people who provide your food and can nuke you is just dumb. But I guess the myopic violent idiots tend to win just because they're violent and idiots. At this stage, I see this ending two ways: 1. Seattle gets nuked and everyone dies, which is I think waaaayyy to dark and depressing for this show. Although if Liv and Major get cured and them, Ravi, Peyton, Clive and Dale all get out before it goes then maybe that would be the right balance of tragedy and "happy". Still depressing though. No hope for any of us. 2. They find a synthetic cure for the virus and all the zombies get cured. This one seems like a copout.

    S06.E05: The Gospel of Josephine

    Frankly, I'm not finding the whole Mt Weather Pt 2 conflict interesting at all. For me, what Bellamy brought up about the 200 people still in stasis is far more of an interesting philosophical quandary. This season would have been much better if it was about them finding this small, safe but closed community that was only letting some of them stay. The conflict is then about whether you choose to save yourself and your close friends or strike out to build a larger community that can house everybody. As far as moral or ethical questions go, that's a far more interesting one to me than "this is just like Mount Weather, who has to pull the lever this time around?"

    And Korean zombie films are about unrestrained capitalism. But since modern American zombie film and television is entirely an expression of xenophobia - and iZombie is specifically a response to that xenophobia - than I fail to see why people would have a problem with this analogy. It's absolutely apropos.

    Josephine is supposed to be a super genius and Trig is just English with a language shift. I'm not sure why it shifted so much in only 100 years - especially when Sanctum's didn't shift at all over a much longer period - but then I think we have to defer to the power of Handwavium with the 100 timeframe for a lot of things.

    I thought that Bellamy spoke Trig to Clarke because he suspected she wasn't Clarke. He was testing her. But you're right - Clarke doesn't behave like Clarke in front of her own mother and she's too self-absorbed to notice. Bellamy low-key suspects immediately.

    I really don't see Murphy as being solely out for himself. I feel like that's become his personal brand, like it's a marketing tagline for himself. But it's been a long time since he genuinely put himself over everybody else. To me, "Wouldn't it be awesome if I could live forever!" is going to last about 10 seconds after he realises they murdered Clarke. At least, that's my read of his character. If that isn't the case this time around, they'll have to do a good job of selling me on it.

    Oh, me too! This is more to do with how TV works I suspect. They decided her family didn't work so they wrote them out. Which is fine, but I for one could use at least a cameo or a throwaway line to explain what happened.
