March rolls on with another big sci-fi premiere! This week The CW will premiere The 100 — the story of a group of juvenile delinquents sent to the Earth’s surface to determine if the war-ravaged world is suitable for resettlement. It’s a rare case of a pure, traditional sci-fi series on network television — set in the future, with a space ship and advanced tech, etc. — and we can’t wait to see how the show turned out on Wednesday.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has the week off (and next week is a repeat), so that ABC can show a special on the making of the Marvel cinematic universe — ahead of the April 4 theatrical release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
