    Anyone else watch this? I was impressed. They managed to cram in a lot of exposition without it being too awkward, the characters were developed quickly, and the plot is interesting and mysterious enough that I found myself hooked. I'm glad this is on The CW, because that pretty much insures it'll be picked up for at least 7 or 8 seasons.

    Is there an ugly person on any CW tv show?

    I gave up on this show after the first 10 minutes. Then I read this thread and decided to finish the episode. It wasn't as bad as I thought but I'm not sure how far I'll want to continue with a show where 90% of the characters appear to be a-holes.

    I couldn't stand the obnoxious music and seemingly non-stop cheering and yelling.

    The only music I really noticed was the use of "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons, which must be the single most over-used television series montage song in the last year. I was amused by it, though, because the lyrics literally made sense in the context of this show.

    I thought it was pretty good. I hadn't heard anything about this show. :confused:

    It was advertized heavily on the CW and I watch entirely too many CW shows.

    They could have at least pretended to try to give the "kids" some useful training before sending them into the unknown.

    That kid that swung across the river... with all that jumping and hollering and nobody following behind, it was obvious that he was going to die.

    So I guess they are now The 99.

    Lucky for me the CW really is pushing this program and airing multiple repeats during the week. My schedule was too crammed to record the pilot on first airing, so my TiVo is grabbing the Tuesday showing.

    Hard to believe with all the tech they have that they can't tell what the radiation level on earth is.

    There are quite a few familiar faces here, but I don't think I've seen the blonde girl before--she's pretty good.

    Another dystopian Sci fi production that is based on another YA book series. And, It's actually quite good.

    With The Flash also coming soon, they'll have a nice portfolio of science fiction TV shows.

    Maybe The CW should consider taking over the Sci Fi moniker from the syfy channel.

    97 (2 died during the landing).

    Better than I expected - I'll keep my SP and see where it goes...

    Ha, ha, no. Well, yes actually, but they're in a distinct minority, and the attractive ones are really, really attractive. Arrow easily has two of the most beautiful actresses on TV, in Katie Cassidy and Caity Lotz, and one of the prettiest in Emily Bett Rickards. And I don't think my wife objects at all when Stephen Amell is shirtless. :rolleyes:

    I was thoroughly fed up with the 98 crybabies by the time they became 97. What a bunch of complete idiots. If that's what's left of the human race, good riddance. If they even managed to survive with the 5 brain cells between the 97 of them, I can only hope one or two thousand years of evolution can help.

    For people born in space, as the 3rd of 4th generation, they sure seemed determined to party like it's 1999.

    Yeah, I'm completely sure they managed to put the space station together from disparate pieces, all without any additional help from the ground. Right.

    The premise wasn't too bad, at least as it was advertised... up until the first 5 words out of anyone's mouth were aired. Then it entered turbo stupid mode. The had more space devoted to their little prison in space than they should've had for four times as many people to live. Which is all the more unreasonable considering it needed to be a closed ecosystem for almost 100 years.

    I watched it here tonight: http://www.cwtv.com/cw-video/the-100/pilot/?play=c1840010-670e-41da-b0ca-dfee657f0ab1

    I agree with every poster on this thread. To contribute I will say I wish Abigail Griffin had been floated.

    98, they started with 101, the brother of that girl who shot the chancellor wasn't supposed to be on it I thought.

    I agree, I'll give it a few more chances but this show is on probation already.

    Oh, and duh, I'm sure you've got more than one doctor aboard capable of performing major surgeries. Surely the medical school aboard the space station churns out more than one qualified candidate every generation. Wouldn't want to throw the baby out with the bathwater, would we, by tossing the only doctor out the airlock?

    They're just not even trying to make this show have any sense whatsoever.
