Absolutely, I agree, with these type of shows it's very easy for them to devolve into a lot of teen age romantic white noise when they have so many episodes to fill. Keep it tight with low episode numbers, I think 13 is just about right.

One other thing occurs to me... what are the odds that since the Mountain Men still seem to have electricity and other technology that they will somehow come up with a plan to rescue Jaha before his air runs out? I hope they don't go that route, but they might...

They said he had about a week or two of air left. At the end of the episode the clock on the camera watching the kids said it was over 6 days and counting, were they watching them for over 6 days????

I found the level of teen romance filler in season 1, or even in Tomorrow People, which ran for 20+ episodes, to be tolerable. I bring up Tomorrow People, because I thought that show managed to sustain interest throughout the full season, with plenty of interesting plot twists and minimal predictable "mission of the week" and relationship filler, and even the relationship stuff threw in a few surprises.

So yes, as long as The 100 can keep things moving in an unpredictable fashion (killing characters that one would assume were unkillable, like Jaha's son), I'll happily put up with young, nubile bodies in their bras and panties every now and then.

I gave up on Tomorrow People, actually I missed a few episodes and couldn't get caught up and just let it go, did it end ok, is it left with a cliff hanger or does it have a decent stopping place?

There was a character cliffhanger ending, but the season long story arc got wrapped up pretty tightly. It's kinda like a comic book ending one storyline, with the last 2 pages setting up the next big arc.

Dazed and confused over high tech.

Sigh...Concrap. The Internet Overlord Cometh
They're not com-tastic!

Couldn't have said it better myself. I'm really glad Tomorrow People wrapped it up the way it did for the sake of closure, given the cancellation, as this show makes for great Netflix streaming viewing whenever it lands there for folks who missed this very entertaining series.

I don't usually mind romance angles, either, but I would be happier to have CW showing something different, since it already has enough of those shows on its roster. TP was a huge disappointment, and I'm glad The 100 got picked up for a second season instead.
