  1. S03.E06: The Source

    We get a very good idea of who likely did it and why.

    It's a matter of resources. If they had something like a 3-D printer, it could make the replacement parts given enough raw materials. If food were plentiful and they could create enough energy for heat and light and communication, I don't see why they couldn't create small scale factories. Of course, technological innovation on Earth is largely driven by financial motives, and that may not be in play on Earth 2.

    Or they cannibalized the Eligius 3 ship to build Earth 2. So far, we've had regressed civilization (Grounders) attacking the 100 as a fearsome enemy. We've had an advanced society (Mt. Weather) using the 100 as biological specimens to solve a medical crisis. We had Alie trying to save humanity by downloading them into an AI a la "The Matrix." Finally, the remainder of civilization had to struggle to survive, yet ending up destroying any chance they had with petty squabbles. Obviously, they can't land on some kind of utopia with resources and a social structure that works well. The viewers would be bored and the show would be cancelled. My bet is that Earth 2 will have advanced technology, but strict laws that will turn Wonkru and company into criminals almost immediately.

    It's not clear if any of the crew had access to those files. The missile system was locked out mostly to keep someone from launching the missiles at the ground. I couldn't keep track. Is Eligius 3 the ship they're on or another ship that went to Earth 2? Otherwise, they'll be some sort of civilization there and another dumbass fight for resouces.

    I thought Monty said he could grow plants using the algae as nutrient, then plant them in the barren ground. Then again, if that were possible, he could do it somewhere outside of the Damocles zone and restart the Earth in a couple decades.
  6. S02.E09: The General / S02.E10: Chinatown

    It reminds me of the gnomes from South Park 1. Do evil stuff 2. ??????????? 3. Rule the world

    5/10/2158 - Jordan is born. 11/3/2184 - Jordan is put into cryo by Monty and Harper. So, 26 years and 5 months when he went in.

    There's so much that could have happened that would NOT have led to the final destruction of Earth. Clarke could have left Octavia the worms. Octavia could have let Monty use the algae. Diyoza could have written her book in code or possibly filled it with ways McCreary should kill himself. Now, in reality, the one patch of Earth left should have died or expanded over the years. And were all the oceans gone? Because that would have required a shitload more heat to do that. I'll probably watch next season in the futile hope that I get some Sci-fi with my (post) teen drama.
  9. They really pulled a "La Femme Nikita" with this 5th season.

    I was wondering about Monty's corpse as well. That would suck if Jordan had to wake up and push his dad's remains out of the Captain's chair. So, my rough estimate is that Jordan is 25-26, which conveniently makes him about the same age as the 100 members left. That's pretty weird, though. He lived for over 20 years only socializing with his parents. I hope he at least had some videos available during puberty.

    And don't forget, Monty and Harper are gone. Like the viewers, the IQ of the survivors drops a little every season.
  12. S05.E13: Damocles. Part Two 2018.08.07

    One last battle for survival, my ass. Apparently, they're just going to invent chance after chance until the CW mercy kills this show.

    Also, Klaus said that there was going to be a wedding or mass murder there. The compulsion is pretty regular, but it probably beats the indiscriminate feedings and murders. Then there are the people compelled to kill themselves. From the beginning, The Originals was pitched as a mob family drama and that's what it is. A bunch of entitled scions have drama and everyone else is a pawn.
  14. We know the werewolf curse is a result of the Hollow getting revenge on her killers, so I'm sure she wasn't interested in a loophole based on intent.
  15. Current Timeline: News and Media

    NBC could care less about good will. They want to minimize costs (cheap productions) and maximize profits (as many eyes of 18-54 as possible). Very few people in reality boycott an entire network over a single bad programming decision. The good news is that shows on networks trying to sell soap are being pushed out by shows on streaming services trying to keep any viewer who pays them a subscription. It's even working for CBS, which is a hybrid by putting a terrible show like Discovery on a subscription site and giving it another season. Netflix saved Lucifer, and that is so procedural that the main character compared it to Bones. I think Timeless was high concept, but the show got bogged down in creating a new timeline while being too invested in the "real" timeline. Even worse, the villains have no logical motivation. I endorse the idea of a finale movie where they can try to cobble together a resolution, but I wasn't that excited about another season of 1)chase mother ship 2)steal clothes 3)find famous historical figure 4)find Rittenhouse sleeper 5)find out some minor piece of information back at HQ 6)Catch / kill Rittenhouse agent 7)fundamentally change the past because the Time Team deems it better 8)come back to find that nothing as bad as Lucy's sister disappearing happened, even though they arguably injured time worse than in the pilot.
