But if one person or a small group of people write about skipping episodes on Social Media, then maybe other persons are also skipping episodes because they get affected by the stuff they read on SM
Look at this InfoBellarke girl ... It's only one person, but she has an Twitter account which is followed by thousands of followers ... if that one girl does something that harms the show, then maybe thousands of her followers do the same and that will harm the show in any case

I just think that people need to be mature about it. Period. If it's something you truly don't enjoy watching anymore, it's fine but what annoys me is when people are deliberately tuning out to reduce the ratings for certain episodes and then tuning in the following week/when they know that they still love the show but want the show to "suffer" due to certain creative choices.

But that's their right to do so. And frankly, as someone who's skipped and stopped watching, I find this stuff you guys are saying about people offensive and hurtful. I would never judge you guys if you stopped watching The 100 or any show!

You're making a much bigger deal of this than is called for. It's still a small group of people, the show's already been renewed and is doing fine in the ratings as it is, and it doesn't affect your ability to watch and enjoy the show.

Yes, that behavior is not good Sarah.

I totally agree with you Sarah

I honestly don't see what has been said here so far is offensive or hurtful, Kate. These are strong words TBH.

I've stopped watching shows because storylines frustrated me or were plain bad but I never tuned out to deliberately hurt ratings for certain episodes. I think that is plain childish, you might feel differently but that's how I see it. Same goes for the behaviour displayed by InfoBellarke as far as I'm concerned. Do I like Becho? Not one bit. But it doesn't mean that I'm going to resort to this sort of behaviour when I PLAN to continue watching a show but want to spite TPTB, all the same.

As for the ratings/renewal, we lucked out that the show HAS been renewed but if it wasn't already so, this would definitely affect ratings and I'll be angry at these people TBH.

Anyway, both sneak peeks for this episode:

I was not saying they're right to tune out to hurt the ratings on purpose! I even edited a post to say I agree with you right after you posted about it.

I did see that but your post still talked about the posts here being offensive and hurtful which I frankly don't see, IMO. That's why I commented on it, because that speaks negatively about the mood in this thread and I don't agree with that. Anyway, let's just focus on the episode.

Of course it’s everyone’s right to decide whether they want to watch or not, but . . . it just frustrates me is all. The consistently positive people in this fandom have to carry the negative ones on their backs sometimes, especially when they have a knee-jerk reaction to something. But at least everyone here is continuing to watch, regardless of whether they like a certain storyline or a certain ship or not. So that’s what matters.

Well said April

That's the reason why I enjoy it so much to post with you all here

It frustrates me because it speaks to a much larger issue IMO. So many people these days seem to feel that it's not enough for one to have an opinion, it's not even enough to have the freedom to share that opinion. No, people feel they have the RIGHT to have their opinions pandered to - even so far as having characters they don't like written off of television shows (and the actors put out of a job) - and that bothers me. It bothers me a lot.
