★★★★★/★★★★★ Review: Veronica Mars, film and series, both produced by Rob Thomas.
In this review I will speak of the series and film as one entity, because it is inconceivable to speak of one without the other.
Veronica: “Tragedy blows through your life like a tornado, uprooting everything, creating chaos. You wait for the dust to settle, and then you choose. You can live in the wreckage and pretend it’s still the mansion you remember. Or you can crawl from the rubble and slowly rebuild. Because after disaster strikes, the important thing is that you move on. But if you’re like me, you just keep chasing the storm.

★★★★/★★★★★ My Mad Fat Diary based on My Fat, Mad Teenage Diary by Rae Earl.
This series follows Rae Earl, a 16-year-old who recently left a psychiatric hospital after attempting suicide. After returning home she encounters her old best friend, and tries to live the normal teen life of the nineties. This series follows her as she tries to reconnect with her best friend, Chloe, while trying to make friends with Chloe’s friends Finn, Archie, Izzy and Chop; it follows her as she tries to deal with her body image ( Rae has issues with her body); it follows her and her suffering with depression and her other mental health issues. But Rae is not the only one with issues, and so the series explores everyone else’s problems, how they overcome them, if they do, and how this affects their relationships.

★★★★/★★★★★ The 100, based of the novel by Kass Morgan and developed by Jason Rothenberg.
This is a review for the first 2 seasons.
The series takes place a century after Earth was destroyed by nuclear war, the survivors live in a spaceship known as “The Ark”. Obviously resources are few, so all crimes are given the punishment of death unless one is under the age of 18, in which case when said age is reached, the teen will be put on trial. When the Ark’s air supply starts to die, 100 of these delinquent kids are sent down to Earth so the planet can be tested as survival ground or not. There are many surprises, mysteries, hate-able and lovable characters, madness ensues. Continue reading “The 100: Diversity, a horrid future, and luckily, nothing like the book. | Series Review”
