Author: Daniel

Hey there, 26 year old TV junkie, podcaster, and aspiring screenwriter here. I graduated from Connecticut College with a degree in Film Studies and I love watching TV almost as much as I love criticizing it. My favorite shows include Buffy, The 100, Doctor Who, LOST, Jessica Jones, Breaking Bad, and so many more. Podcasting has been a passion of mine for over 7 years and I've covered a wide variety of (what I'd consider) guilty pleasure TV. This includes everything from Glee to MTV's Scream, to Girl Meets World. I love diving deep into a show, dissecting its storytelling, and commenting on the social and representational messages it provides. Currently, I reside in the Greater Boston area where I do freelance video editing for numerous companies. I've made several short films and I'm currently converting my basement into a mini studio so that I can build a YouTube channel. In my free time I design amateur video games using the Unity Game Engine and go to comedy shows with my wonderful girlfriend.

  1. A very inspiring discussion of the episode
    Apples play a central role in a variety of stories, for example in the saga about Troy, for a great war that ended with a trick and that led into a 10-year odyssey (Hesperides are then also the condemned from Bardo). Then also in the expulsion from paradise (sending the 100 to earth). The Hesperides -as symbols of a gift- stand for impersonality. So the apple and the Hesperides also became a symbol for Octavia, who was born as a forbidden fruit, was not officially allowed to exist on the Ark and had to be hidden, which is repeatedly torn between SkyCrew, Gounders, TriCrew, and OneCrew. Furthermore, she did not find any proper place in life after escaping from the earth because of her past. Anymore, she sees parallels to her life, especially in Hope.
