So, they decide to send down a group of 100 teenage prisoners to the Earth to see if it is now livable. Lots of problems arise. Plays again next Tuesday. Back during the summer after having watched all The CW’s new pilots for the 2013-14 TV season, this was my favorite they had to offer. I’ve now seen the first six episodes of The 100 and it is still my favorite of The CW’s new shows this season. It has some problems, especially the reaction that many have once reaching the ground. Yes, it has the teenage love triangles and such, but the wrapper is a very compelling premise. The cast is great with lots of recognizable faces, especially in the adult cast playing the leaders on the space station. Check out some video interviews with the cast and creator of The 100.

Doll & Em (HBO): Series Premiere. A woman heads to Hollywood to be her best friend’s personal assistant after breaking up with her boyfriend. In the second episode, Doll ends up babysitting at a Hollywood party for Em’s new movie.
