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.
Nooo...They will start doing bug-eye movies.

Very surprised they killed off the President's son.

Though the blonde girl is getting on my nerves. Just so damned self-righteous.

I watched and deleted the episode, maybe I missed a final scene after commercials.

Thanks for the help though.

The little girl killed him, because her nightmares that she saw each night was his dad killing her parents. So to stop the nightmares she killed him, it's why she was watching to see how Adam was killed. She killed him by stabbing him in the neck. She then hummed the tune that the blonde chick was humming too.

It was kind of creepy and unexpected of course.

I'm kinda ashamed to admit it but this show is growing on me.

I've seen the actor who plays Murphy on two shows and he's played a total dick on both. He's very good at it. He has a long career ahead of him playing villains.

Clarke is annoyingly self righteous but when she wears that low cut blouse, I forgive her.

This show has about the most attractive female cast I've seen (I can't really speak to the men's attractiveness).

How many of the 100 are left now? 95?

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!

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

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).

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...

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.

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.

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.
