As I was aimlessly wandering around Netflix on Election Day (I had no school, holla), I stumbled upon this weird show! I obviously had no idea what I was getting into because I was just bored and looking for something to watch,
Let me be the first to say that The 100 is an amazing and exhilarating show that will keep you watching until 4:00 in the morning, well at least for me that is. If you're yearning for an action-packed apocalyptic TV series to start, I'm guessing this one right here will fit the bill. No one does action and blood better than the CW.
Let's start off with the plot: A nuclear war caused people to leave earth for about 97 years, give or take. Clarke Griffin, our main protagonist, is a juvenile prisoner. Little does she know that her society has big plans for "people" like her. 100 of these prisoners are sent back down to the ground to see if it is inhabitable. And the story takes off from there...
The thing I loved most about this show was that it didn't precisely focus on romance. That's a big thing in TV shows these days, especially for teens and young adults. For example, take the Vampire Diaries. First it was all about the keeping-I'm-a-vampire-a-secret thing, but then Elena showed up and I guess that's where we could say the romance blossomed. If you've ever watched TVD, you know what I'm talking about. It's like romance has practically taken over the show itself!
In The 100 we are taken on an entirely different journey filled with violence, mysterious creatures of the Earth, and not to mention, space!! I've yet to see a good space movie this year, however, I have high hopes for Interstellar. If you're not big on science fiction movies, this probably isn't the one for you. But majority of you are so there is no doubt in my mind that you will enjoy it!
I recently just found out that this show is actually based on a book. I bought the series the second I found out, and I really can't wait till they get here! This TV series is fairly now. As I'm writing this, I am watching as the show is airing. Every Wednesday at 9/8c, so tune in for the fun and excitement! Book review on this series to come soon!
