Episodes of A Bit Much

It's been six years since the world ended AGAIN, and our favorite characters are back at it, trying to save their friends and keep the human race alive. We discuss Clarke's mythologizing of her own life, the reversal of roles when a new threat
As Season Four - and the surface of the earth - comes to a fiery end, characters are scrambling to figure out how they'll survive the next 5+ years of nuclear fallout. Octavia experiences the burden of leadership for the first time. Jaha's ego
It's Octavia's time to shine as she enters the conclave to fight for Skaikru. Through her cooperation with other warriors, her memory of Lincoln's beliefs, and her witnessing how far Luna has fallen, she comes to a radical decision about how hu
In the last days before the arrival of a deadly radiation wave, our characters are faced with fewer and fewer options for survival. We discuss Jaha's conspiracy theories, Monty's admirable commitment to his friends, Octavia's extremely brief at
In these episodes, a series of increasingly unfortunate events cause the characters to become more and more desperate for a plan to survive the encroaching nuclear radiation. Jasper provides levity through pranks and Dr. Seuss quotes. Luna insi
Our friends from the 100 may have just solved one apocalypse, but as Season 4 begins they're faced with another one, as well as several smaller yet more immediate crises. These kids just can't catch a break, huh? Skaikru tries to maintain good
As Season 3 comes to an end, our favorite characters face increasingly dangerous and high-stakes challenges, making one last ditch effort after another to save themselves and their loved ones. Bellamy shows some growth, Murphy is a reluctant he
As we move into the back half of Season 3, the threat of ALIE is ever-growing, while her ethical considerations seem to disappear. We get to flashback to the 100 as naive teen criminals and see how much they've all changed. An old enemy makes a
This episode of A Bit Much has some heavy stuff, which is saying something, considering what is typical for The 100. We talk about major character deaths, and the way that these characters' sexual and racial identities complicate their deaths.
Everything kind of takes a turn for the worse here. Clarke convinces Lexa to take a controversial stance, Raven joins a cult, and Bellamy makes some deeply out-of-character choices. On the bright side, there is a really cool trial-by-combat sce
War among the clans is impending, the threat of a creepy AI is spreading, and the brief peace enjoyed by the Arkadians seems to be crumbling. There's a lot going on at the start of season 3, and most of it does not bode well for the future. We
As season two concludes, the characters must all grapple with what their moral standards are and what they're willing to do to protect themselves and the people they love. We discuss trust and betrayal, guilt and innocence, and the significant
Things heat up as the Arkadians struggle to maintain an alliance with the grounders, and life in Mount Weather becomes increasingly dangerous for the 47. Clarke tries to become more cold-hearted. Murphy decides to believe in something, for once
Welcome to the Finn Collins show, where we talk about the highs and lows (but mostly lows) of Finn's character arc. Other topics of discussion include zombies, badass power struggles, and Book!Octavia's bad habit of nearly being murdered.   M
The second season starts in true The 100 fashion - messy, complex, with heavy themes and high adrenaline. The book also gets more complicated and messy, but not in a good way. We discuss the clash of different societies, the making and breaking
As the first season comes to a close, tensions raise on all sides - matters of personal drama, warfare, and survival all become more urgent. We meet new characters and are reintroduced to old ones. Characters are put in increasingly tough situa
In this episode, Megan and Jenna look at the middle of Season 1 (and a few book chapters, which are...inconsequential). We discuss the introduction (and conclusion) of a new villain, the parallel between Bellamy and Kane as they begin feeling g
In The 100, it's 97 years after a nuclear apocalypse, and the only known living humans live on a space station called the Ark. When once again facing the threat of extinction, the leaders of the Ark decide to send one hundred juvenile delinquen
It's the beginning of a new era. In this announcement episode, we discuss the future of A Bit Much.   Music: Up In My Jam (All Of A Sudden) by Kubbi https://soundcloud.com/kubbi Creative Commons — Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported— CC BY-S
A Bit Much is two years old! And in podcast years, that's like, twelve. To celebrate this anniversary, we decided to look back on the greatest movies that we've watched for this podcast - and to argue over exactly which movies those are. Which
A Separate Peace tells a nuanced story about friendship, jealousy, and wartime. We discuss queer readings, underlying savagery, and the merging of identities. We also complain about the amount of pastoral descriptions of New England.   Music:
For this special, face-to-face recording, we chose a story that's had a big impact on our lives and on the genre it popularized: The Hunger Games. It's a story that takes an outlandish concept and gives it an intense emotional truth. We talk ab
Sol Yurick's 1965 novel The Warriors depicts the harsh and incomprehensible realities of gang life for young men in New York City. The movie adaptation removes much of the violence and adds a lot of camp. Jenna insists we discuss an ancient Gre
To All the Boys I've Loved Before has everything we could ask for - a fake dating plot, complicated family dynamics, and beautiful 20-something leading actors. Both the book and movie have their strengths and weaknesses, but they were both a to
Silver Linings Playbook is a story about family, romance, mental illness, books on a high school English syllabus, violence, and the Philadelphia Eagles. The novel does an excellent job of interweaving themes and subplots through the eyes of a
