    You didn't specify genre. I thought you meant just number of shows.

    I honestly think the investment of tv show and making a big deal about when shows get cancelled is kind of stupid.

    Another good episode. An clarke needs to use her M16 one handed more often.


    I wonder how many of the 100 Lincoln could take out without them even noticing, given that he was able to plant a flower right in front of them without them noticing.

    Raven is one scary chick,
    Flin or one of the other characters: the bridge survive a nuclear war,
    Raven "it won't survive me."


    I reckon the mountain men have the survivors from the crash. Shame we didn't hear anything about the ark this week.

    I did mean TV shows in general Just finished watching Arrow season 2 and I like how they didn't really end it on a major cliffhanger, but they kept it open so if it was cancelled it could have ended where ir was but also if it got renewed it was open to continue. Maybe other shows should take a leaf out of Arrows book on how to end the season. That way there won't be as many shows ending without a resolution if they get cancelled.

    I started watching out of curiosity. It's the CW so expect teen-stuff to take place, but it surprised me in a good kind of way. I like the cast and the characters. The premise of the show too, except that you do have to suspend believe a lot. I mean, 97 years... that's a bit short, wouldn't you think so.

    You mean the pod that came down with the rebels... I doubt anyone survived that crash.

    You know I can't remember that far back Maybe they learned while making season 2 to not risk ending on cliffies as they'll more than likely be cancelled in a season or 2.

    However, that was not the case for Arrow -- they knew even before they were halfway that they would get a second season.

    The writers of Arrow have admitted to being Buffy fans. They like using the premise of a Big Bad per season.

    Maybe it wasn't really a nuclear attack. After all their has to be a way for the Grounders to survive down there.

    A dirty bomb perhaps... there is lots of mention of radioactivity.

    The people on the Ark thought it was nuclear attack. It seems they have been wrong about a lot of things recently

    .
    Not really, actually someone did the maths and even the dirtiest bomb we could make, a cobalt device, earth would be habitable in as little 100 years, perfectly safe in 200 years.
    Plus radiation wouldn't be spread evenly across the planet, there be low and high levels of radiation in different places. The grounders could have been luck enough to have been in a low radiation zone.

    The highest death toll wouldn't come from radiation or even directly from the bombs themselves, it be from the nuclear winter that would occur and last for at least 2 year if not longer.

I suppose I could tape it and wait and see what happens before I decide to watch it. Done that with Arrow this season. Watched all of season 2 in a few days there.
    Exactly. The 100 and TP were imo their only Sci-fi focused ones. The others are all either vampire based, or Arrow. We know they ain't gonna kill their pop star (Arrow) nor the vamp ones since there are so many fans of them it seems. But the Scifi ones (the 100 and TP) are fair game. They already canned the TP, and though the 100 got a 2nd season it seems, whether it lasts beyond that is anyone's guess.

    TP had very bad ratings, o.3 throughout April.
    The 100 even without new episodes Arrow in support seem to be remaining stable at 0.5 to 0.6

    What even more where TP got neutral to negative reviews, The 100 is getting great reviews from critics.

    Hm. Strange. Guess since the TP was more 'adult focused' with it's story line, while the 100 seems to be (as its mostly kids) teen focused its holding the teen demographic more. Which i find funny since its a lot of teens who are into mutants and such with marvel etc.

    Have you watched The 100, I say the stories in The 100 have been more adult focused than teen focused.
    TP lot were suppose to be teens, through the poor casting and poorer acting it was hard to tell that they were meant to be playing teens.

    The biggest surprise for me -- they truly dare to go one step too far (in a manner of speaking that is), and show what happens when you drop a bunch of kids on a planet with no rules or regulations. And they start taking matters into their own hands.

    Lord of the Flies does come to mind a lot though.

    I would say its kids having to grow up fast and be able to make adult decisions. The threat of a radioactive Earth and the Grounders makes petty teen problems rather pointless.

    Mmm... petty teen problems do tend to pale in comparison in such situations.
