    That grounder sure is a toughie. Not to mention good-looking.

    Excellent episode.
  • Absolutely breathtaking!

    This was an incredible episode! So much to love about it - it was so suspenseful and there were intense moments both in the Ark and on the ground.



    Loved the tension between Clarke and Abby - it has been building up and we saw it come to light.



    Also absolutely loved Octavia in this episode - from trying to stop them to ultimately helping the guy, it was so interesting and the nature of that connection is mysterious and interesting.



    Looking forward to the next one - this show is beyond amazing!moreless

    This is an action packed tv show from the word go. I reluctantly started to watch this and now I'm glad I did. Will they become friends with the "grounders" or remain foes? I hope they become friends . Time will tell. Great show.
  • The 100 is turning into Battlestar Galactica

    Since the first episode I felt that life on the Ark space station felt somehow familiar but I couldn't put my finger on it until this episode, when I saw 'Alessandro Juliani' playing a character in the Ark communication room, a role very similar to his role as 'Felix Gaeta'

    After seeing Alessandro, I instantly recognized the familiarity I had been feeling regarding the Ark as what life was like on Galactica. The producers of The 100 had clearly drawn a lot of inspiration from Battlestar Galactica.

    Less than 10mins after this realization, another major BSG Actress popped up (Kate Vernon, who played Ellen Tigh) playing the role of former chancellor Diana.

    There's no doubt that BSG has inspired The 100 and I must admit, I am already hooked to this show. I look forward to each episode and it clearly has lots of potential. I just hope they continue to be inspired by BSG and keep this familiar feeling because I miss BSG so much and this brings back so many good memories.

    Who would have thought, a cross between Battlestar Galactica and the Hunger Games would give us such a great show? I highly recommend The 100 if you haven't seen it yet.



    The only change I would like to see in this show is I want them to go deeper into the BSG style by bringing in musical composer, Bear McCreary. If he came on board, this show would be hard to beat.



    EDIT:

    I can't believe I forgot to mention this. Another connection to Battlestar Galactica. I noticed this similarity during the pilot episode. Has anyone else noticed that Councillor Kane played by Henry Ian Cusick, has more than a passing resemblance for the BSG character Gaius Baltar played by James Callis. With all these other BSG connections, I'm certain this is an intentional resemblance. It's just a shame they didn't bring in James Callis for the role. Mind you, I guess they need to be careful not to distract their viewers away from the story too much with too many BSG connections. Also, I suppose, If I was James Callis, I wouldn't take the part if I was offered it because as an actor, he would run the risk of being Typecasted into this type of character even more than he already has been by BSG.moreless
