    I find 100 to be interesting so far. Let’s see what they do with season 2. Chicago PD is pretty interesting beyond the all to obvious attempts at sentimentality. Is there anyone who didn’t think the girl out of rehab was going to help break the case. Also, a true dirty cop drama like “t he shield” would have sophia bush kill the ex-boyfriend and have the cover up as a background story next season.

    i’m almost in disbelief after last nights the 100 episode, did they actually just kill off ALL of the adults!?

    • Katherine215 says:

      No, weren’t the adults still alive on the ark? I think a lot of the adults on the ship that came to earth died, but I’m still expecting Clarke’s mom and the evil councilwoman and a few of her henchmen to have found a way to survive the crash…somehow.

      • jen says:

        in last week’s episode it was mentioned that the drop ship was tied into all of the major systems on the ark (power, water, air) and if it launched everyone on the ark would die. At the end of that episode (when the ship launched) it looked like the arc had lost power and was starting to break apart

        • Katherine215 says:

          I thought it just needed more time to disconnect from the systems, and the argument they had bought them the time. I definitely agree the ark looked damaged, but I don’t know that I agree that everyone died…

          • jj says:

            they would have needed some sort of a miracle to disconnect from the system, it was supposed to have taken hours! It would be really stupid to build up all this backstory just to kill off the adults…but then again thats what happened with Wells

    The middle was so fantastic last night!!!

    • Parker says:

      It was!!! :) The Hecks are always fun to watch but when they have holidays (Thanksgiving, Halloween) or they go on vacation they never fail to crack me up!

      I just was a little disappointed that they didn’t do anything with the blue bag :D

    So happy that scripted tv got higher ratings than the two juggernaut reality finales!
