    I don't know, Arrow's cast is pretty magnificent itself...

    Yeah, the CW shows have a knack for casting the best looking, most mediocre actors around.

    Oh sure, kill off the minority so that the two white people can get together.

    If they have acid storms often enough, wouldn't the fauna show signs of it?

    All that plants that are susceptible to acid rain are long dead. The plants we see today are the descendents of acid-rain-resistant plants.

    Yay evolution! :D

    I would think the acid rain would affect the streams and rivers also, make them all acidy and possibly non-potable.

    Is it "The Hundred"? or is it "The One Hundred"? This keeps me up at night...

    According to the "Previously On..." spoken bit at the beginning of the episodes, it's "The Hundred." (I know this because it kept me up at night, too).

    Ask some and they will tell you it's the "Ahundred."

    I have watched the first two episodes and am surprised that I like the show since, I am not into CW teen angst shows. There are plot holes you could drive the USN George HW Bush through but it is still entertaining.

    For me, IMHO the Spartacus series had the best looking women in the history of TV.:)

    Of course, Spartacus had, shall we say, an unfair advantage...

    There are a couple of women on Banshee that can be on my team.

    TV shows in general tend to have better-than-average looking women...

    They certainly aren't afraid to kill people on this show.

    Kudos to the writers for not having a last minute reprieve.

    Long...
    Is there some reason they couldn't drop 325 people down to Earth instead of killing 325 people aboard the station? Lack of "drop ships"? Of course, if they have no drop ships what exactly are their plans to get there at any point in the future?

    Did they tell everyone they dumped 100 of their prisoner kids to Earth, or is that still a dirty secret?

    That place they saw the rocket flares from seemed pretty spartan compared to everyone's quarters... was that her cell? With a "skylight"?

    And speaking of rocket flares shot into space... Yeah. How convenient someone happened to be looking into just the right 5% of the planet during the 30-ish seconds they might be there, not to mention how convenient the station was in just the right place so that when they were finally ready to launch the rocket flares, they'd even be able to be in a useful location.

    And I suppose since it's The CW there was simply no real question that the one person who'd make it down to the ground would be the girlfriend of the guy who just had sex with another girl the night before... just so they could create a jealousy triangle of some sort.

    There's reasonable explanations for all your nitpicks.

    They don't have dropsies ready.
    Even prison cells now have barred windows. (At least TV ones do)
    Stationary orbit.
    What else are you supposed to do in a holding cel with one window with a spectacular view? Stare out where your daughter you miss horribly is.

    Was there dialog to that effect?
    Because I don't recall hearing any.

    Otherwise, I have to agree with Doug that it was stupid.
    Since that thought has been on my mind, I kept wondering why they didn't even think about sending some people to the surface.

    You could have even kept the sacrifice theme even though I'd take probable death over certain death.
