The previews make it seem like Lord of the Flies + monsters.
If this shows has it own topic, merge or delete, but i have clue how to search for it.
more dumb than good, but found it mostly interesting.
couple of questions
are there multiple colonies in space or just the one?
are they in Northern Virginia?
book(s) any good or am i wasting my time with teen drama bs?
The previews make it seem like Lord of the Flies + monsters.
CW and their endless supply of hot chicks. Nice of them to show some ass and brutally murder 3 underaged kids.
This looks like a Hunger Games tv series with the two camps and the adults above fucking with them.
I watch some terrible shit, and am no stranger to CW programming, but I was tired of the stupidity and teen angst halfway through. It didn't help any that the douchebag with the knife is the fucking douchebag from Continuum, who absolutely makes me rage. If I could kill that guy's character in both shows, I'd be a much happier person.
That being said, I'll probably keep watching for a bit to see if it evens out a little and isn't so Lord of the Flies'ish. And the hot chick is worth tuning in for if they keep having her pose like that. Wow.
But I'm really not feeling it yet. Hopefully it gets better, otherwise I'll probably give up on it eventually.
It's pretty meh, but yeah, just being sci-fi will keep me watching for a bit. Hot brunette is a bonus, too bad the main chic isn't really that attractive.
I watched the season preview at the end of the episode, which I pretty much never do. Was a mistake. Assholes spoiled the fact that:
Not a huge deal, I just hate spoilers.
Also, the math is bothering me a bit. Trying to figure out how small the population of the space station is that getting rid of 100 kids extends their life support for a month, while still being large enough to have 100 underage criminals.
Edit: Not to mention the fact that getting rid of your young hardly seems like it's in the interest of the survival of your species.

Whole premise was ridiculous unless the book goes on to explain more of the background. 100 years and no one had any idea what state the earth is in, no scientific data had been collected, science has progressed to jettisoning 100 kids to earth to test things out. Yeah the sociopolitical back drop of the station and lord of the flies on earth.... Ugh, this was just bad.
Will watch, because sorta SciFi
Pussy bitch Draegan sold us out to MMORPG.com
Exodus underway to Rererolled - A Gaming Community
Oh and sorta fuck Tuco too.
A device used to measure radiation levels in a particular area.
Why do they not possess one of these?? All this talk about " Radiation might be killing them, and nobody has even one of these devices? I guess it would not matter that much since it is a " Do and hope you do not die" kind of mission but it annoyed me at all the talk of radiation levels with no measuring device to be had. I also wondered about the space station population. It has been 97 years in space and they had a large enough population to breed 100 teenagers( All of whom look to be 17-20 years old)+ the non-criminals? That is a LARGE population. I guess there could be an age limit established though. At 50, you get air locked.
I loved the part where the blonde chick expresses her concern about the lack of animals. There are no animals and yet the trees apparently mutated to not require carbon dioxide to live?? I was hoping that something was going to come out and eat the deer, but the two headed gotchya was good enough. So yeah the show has a ways to go, but some of the premise is fun. If the kid that got gutted in the chest by a spear lives, there better be a damn good reason why or I stop watching the show right there. That was the best scene in the first episode as it showed that life indeed can be brutal. The last statement made me roll my eyes though, "We are not alone". You are also not in Kansas anymore, as I am sure that line will also be used. Thank you Captain Obvious.

The whole not sending them down with geiger counters and having them built into each of the braclets is more than dumb. Also the guy getting upset people are taking their bracelets off. Dude the people on the station sent 100 kids unequipped un supplied to die horribly why in gods name would anybody do anything to assist them?
Sure it may be nice to have farmers and engineers but chances of them letting you live if they do come down is pretty much nil so the people on the planet should do everything they can to encourage the people on the station to off themselves.
the station did supposedly drop supplies
from comments and reviews from above, appears the book didn't do shit in terms of world building or explaining anything.
I already rewatched that part like 20 times...I mean, uh, what?
@goatface The only supplies that I remember being discussed were the ones stored at the Mt. shelter they are heading to. Which I don't understand how they would be unspoiled after 100 years. Or why they would send these juvenile delinquents to find it, since it has a stockpile of weapons also. But, I digress.
It's a little vague, but apparently there was some kind of malfunction which threw the dropship off course. They were supposed to land a lot closer to the bunker.
Looked readily apparent there were supposed to be 3 parachutes on the dropship but one immediately ripped off and progressively ripped off the second and then none left before the retro rockets kicked in. Honestly, they should have been more than 20 miles off course from their drop zone.
"Hey there's a thread on Rerolled about it and people don't say it's totally awful, let's watch it !"
Worst decision ever, it was awful on every level, bad Disney Channel actors struggling to act in shitty tv show with no direction at all.
That is not to say that this show will not completely suck ass, but I will give it a couple more episodes. Also, as I said earlier, if the guy that got hit in the chest lives, I leave.
Well, after both House of Cards s2, Utopia and True Detective, I can't be bothered watching a beyond mediocre TV show with terrible characters and lame setup. It just doesn't stick. Like, they have wristbands health tech but can't afford 1964 radar tech ? Please, if you wanna get into Sci-Fi, at least do it right or on purpose instead of LOST'ing "it's magic I don't have to explain shit" your way around some lame disney survival trend.
If no one in the thread says anything along the lines of "ya'll should check this out" then you can usually assume that it's going to suck. Not to mention nearly every post had something negative to point out, and nothing to the good except hot-ass in panties (brand new panties with elastic waistband when all the other clothes are old/worn/falling apart haha).
I never watched a pilot where I was actually rooting for ALL the characters to be horribly killed. Usually it's just one or two.
I certainly have never watched the second episode of said show, still hating on the pretty Lord of the Flies morons (I'm lookin at you, wall eyed kid) yet still strangely entertained and ready for episode three...
yeah the idea of the show is pretty awesome and would be great on HBO or AMC, but here on CW it transcends bad and becomes an awesome unintentional comedy. If you are a picky viewer its definitely not something to watch, but as a mst3k-sorta "Dawsons Creek.... IN SPAAAAAAACE" it is good popcorn fun
it certainly isn't good, i find myself hating all the kids then i see the space station and a nice ass and figure might as well kept watching
Needs a bracket on what order they're going to die in.
Why do these people not have access to one spy satellite? I'm able to forgive a lot, this omg they are dying shit is just retarded, sir. You would think they could figure out that vital signs don't go from perfect to flatline in a split second. It took a hot chick that's a grease monkey to tell the scientists this.
found the cw's offical show page, at the start there was 400 people on the 12 stations and now there are 4000 in the colony, but one of the producers said was 2094 at the start of the show and the 4000 number came from an early draft.
also said "All satellites have long since stopped working. Most have been harvested for parts by the Ark. This is why they're Earth blind"
anyway from what little i read, pretty sure this is going to have more science fantasy or real/possible science.
edit - added the part about it being from a early draft

Real smart move to increase your population tenfold when you're stuck in orbit with limited resources. Guess birth control/condoms ran out early.
I think i remember reading for space ark style conquest of other planets the minimum viable populations would need to be 5k, preferable 50k or higher, to prevent genetic problems so its probably not good science anyways. Doesn't really matter, there are apparently mutants on earth and I'm sure they will end up looking super hot and young so all the teens can populate the earth.
You can't really think too much about science on this show, after all its a bit insane that Desmond would be willing to execute a doctor on a trumped up charge, after all in pretty much every society the people you keep alive the longest are the blacksmith, the farmer, the engineer, and the doctor. I feel bad for Gaeta, dude was on BSG and now he's stuck showing up in maybe one scene every other episode to blurt out some worthless technobabble.
also I wonder why they made Desmond loose his accent, unless of course his accent on Lost (Scottish?) was fake...
Ah. I see. Goatface left out a word, screwing up my math. Damn you, man.
I dont mind the show, its CW you come to watch for amusement and mild entertainment and in the end most of the shows on CW are more entertaining that other shit. The 100 has alot of flaws and if you're trying to make too much sense out of it then you're just wasting your time.
All i want to see is these kids getting yanked up like the retarded bitches they are and dismembered. That aside it still has alot of potential for the overall plot so im curious where they take the show since the potential is nearly limitless. The acting along the way will suck, and it does have the disney vibe but whatever.
I'm hoping the super hot mechanic chick gets down to the surface, and takes over after the ugly blond girl gets eaten by gorilla men.
The lens flare on the flashback scenes in space are going to drive me nuts though.
Also, talk about Femme Fatale. Anyone that is even remotely interested in Octavia has something horrible happen to them.
Might be worth it though. She's hot as fuck.
I read this show's synopsis to my wife, then we laughed and didn't watch it ever.
Doesn't the space station have enough landing craft to get everyone to the surface? Why not just put those 300 people in a craft and take their chances on the surface instead of killing them on the station? If the space station doesn't have enough, what good is it if earth is habitable if a ton of people will be stuck there anyway.
info from twitter, so maybe a spoiler....
Rothenberg (show runner) said they had "drop ships", but only had one that took the 100 down. sure that can change if needed.
supposedly a bunch of info was given out at wondercon, but not really looked
did see this interview with Clarke, wish they had let her use her accent on the show
I found it quite hilarious when grounder marine #2 repel drops from a tree to snatch a space teen and conduct horror movie style throat slash and body drop.
This show has gone from cringe inducing to really phenomenally good. Almost one of my weekly favorites. It would be disappointing if it gets cancelled.
They actually wrote a story that shows how much fucked up shit humans would be doing in such post-apocalyptic conditions.
Agree with the above folks. The show has gotten significantly better since the first few episodes.
So will some the adults ever get down to the planet cause know that is the plan but the plot makes me think its adults up there kids down there alone.
If adults came down the kids would have to listen just don't see it happening.
The show is called "The 100", not "The 100 and a few thousand others". I fully expect the rest of the season will be about the slow devolving of the political situation up in the Ark, culminating in a bloody revolt/revolution that ends up with most of the Ark dead or stuck. A few of the named characters will end up escaping down to Earth. Could be wrong, but it just seems they are setting things up to go bad quickly.
Alternatively, the mass landing will go off without a hitch but somehow end up landing off-course. Setting up next season to be a trek to regroup with the adults. Regardless, they'll do whatever deus ex machina they need to keep the adults and the kids separated.
Although at the rate the kids are getting killed, I expect it'll need to be renamed "A Few Dozen" by next season.
Don't know if this was really in the show or not.....but i am thinking not
@JRothenbergTV Creator/Executive ProducerThe Hundred was the name of the project designed to send the prisoners to Earth. Not dependent on # of kids left.
Seriously, who didn't realize what the title referenced.
Well, Octavia has made out with practically every eligible bachelor on the planet now. I mean, I get it, she's ungodly hot, so I'd be right there in line. But still, almost everyone she makes out with gets fucked up too. So there's that.
I'm so glad I watch this show. Until now I never knew that the cold of winter could kill you, even when you're camped in the middle of a forest with a way to make fire.
Ok, I'll let that slide.
Oh, cool, a fallout shelter. They can spend the winter there.
Cause it's too dirty.
Better find some fucking tauntauns then, bitch.
i thought the oil drum bellamy knocked over was gonna be full of oil and catch fire
octavias plans are pretty awesome, "these berries make everyone hallucinate! LEMME GET THE WHOLE CAMP FUCKED UP NOTHING COULD GO WRONG" hahaha. Now lets add a ton of machine guns (that have bullets that don't work sometimes?) , gonna be pretty rad.
Bellamy is literally male captain janeway
the show got renewed for season 2, so pretty awesome. If you like this, and who doesn't, Crisis is a bit similar except its more 24-ish and supposed to a story wrapped up in single season.
I liked the 300 year old oil soaked optic.
Freezing to death because the fallout shelter is "disgusting" is not plausible.
Humans gonna human. Glad to see we haven't lost our touch.
Does The CW do Sci-Fi better than SyFy ever did?
Um, yeah? Not like that's hard, so does any random high school drama class.
This show has better BSG human episodes than BSG.
Really good episode, however no mention if Clarks mother lived somehow from that crash, no mention of what is happening to the space colony when it lost a lot of its power and supplies when the life ship or whatever it was called was stolen with only 50% crew, that caused the space colony to have all types of air and power issues.
It don't look like we get and answer next week to any of these questions.

The main focus is quickly becoming the people on the ground, who for all they know may now be completely stranded as their reinforcements just assploded into Earth. By not giving us a 'meanwhile, on the Arc' split storyline it's just making us focus and empathize more with those on the ground. You know, instead of watching one character weep over the mother she thinks is dead while we know she's alive the whole time, we stuck not knowing with the character. It's what I would almost classify as quality writing.
Finn is an interesting character and/or actor. Some episodes, he's shit at delivering his lines. Others, he's really good. I guess having a cast that could just as easily be in a overly angsty high-school melodrama it's to be expected, as they walk a fine line on the C-Dub.
I literally burst out laughing at the mutant horse scene.
I did not see that coming. That was actually a really good season finale. Lol at the Jesus walk getting interrupted by someone who just did it instead of talking about it and lol at the "mountain men".
The shot of the lake and the contrast with their shit heap was fantastic.
Wow, no idea where this show is going now with that ending. Will stick around for season 2 to find out though. And how many freaking different groups of people are on earth? The mountain men seem to have technology, they never comunicated with those in space? Or did siginials? A giant space station would be very visible on earth.
Well hot damn that was a quality season finale.
They sure don't skimp on death and destruction. They're down to almost half of the original hundred, no ?
I was 99% sure that the mountain men were the military that took shelter in nuclear bunkers and shit. Should have called it here for some tuconets.
Just repeating the "Wow" that has already been said several times now. This has turned out to be fairly interesting with only a few groan-inducing moments (Lincoln is a bit too much of a deus ex, for example). And any show, CW or not, that has the balls to incinerate dozens of people on screen, and then show us their charred skeletons afterward, has earned my loyalty for another season.
I'm sure most everyone else has already come to this conclusion as well, but I'm quite certain that Finn and Riley are still alive. Clarke can't carry the show by herself.
This has returned, btw. And Clarke is looking as busty as ever.
Probably one of my favorite shows from last year, its amazing how much it improved from the beginning of the season to the end. One of the few remaining sci-fi shows. And Clarke has become one of my favorite female protagonists. Smart, cold-blooded, AND busty.
Really getting a Fallout or Wasteland vibe from this season so far, btw. Especially with the vault-dwellers.
5 Reasons To Watch The 100
Finished season one, horrible pilot but picked up around episode 3, ignoring the shitty teenage love triangles and various not another teen movie symptoms it is good times. This show has more red shirts than star trek away missions can handle.
Everytime a new guy talks to or around the main characters they are dead within 10 mins. Chakrum to the face! Only thing that still bothers me is how a normal human can throw with such force, they hinted at ape dudes which would make sense but than they all turn out to be ripped dudes.
And we have resident evil style "Cerberus" program gene soldiers coming up soon too! Such joy. I am curious as to how the anti-radiation healing blood space magic will be explained.
B.Net: TJT#1179"Let go your earthly tether. Enter the void. Empty, and become wind."
More death and destruction (well, mostly death).
Really didn't see this one coming, I'm impressed by CW.
All 4 CW shows I watch (Arrow, Flash, Supernatural, and The 100) had pretty good mid-season finales. This show is much better than the first couple episodes indicated, glad it stuck around.
Except of course for how easy it is for the "kids" to sneak in and out of the fucking camp. Everyone is at the fence watching, 3 kids do a fade but people see them go (including Clarke's mom), and no one thinks "Huh, these are the kids that have snuck out 37 times already. Nah, there is no chance they'll do it again!" That started to annoy me this episode.
Yeah, if he's not 100% dead, it will ruin the show. I get that practically everyone important manages to survive against all odds, but motherfucker is dead.
I'm pretty sure she gave him a drug to make him appear dead. Didn't they have a drug like that in the show already?
