TV Guide: The 100

The 100I started watching this show a month ago and I got hooked.

Here’s some background: Humans rage war and eventually nuke themselves worldwide (smart). If it weren’t for the space stations orbiting the earth the human race would be extinct. Over the following years the space stations join together to create the Ark (fitting name).

The people on the Ark wait. Their futuristic technology allows them to survive for around 150 years. Cue The 100.

The all-knowing in the ship decide that it’s a good time to test the earth’s habitability, and they send their 100 juvenile prisoners to check it out. Always a good idea to send the teenage delinquents to do a job that requires responsibility.

The first episode starts by introducing our main characters: Blondie, Joker, The Sister and Wankerface. Prepare to start shipping immediately.

Okay I admit it. I ship him with Blondie.

The Sister. She's brave, rebellious and wants freedom. Sounds like every teenager I've ever met. Ever.

It’s the little details in this show that I really like. For instance the costuming is amazing. Have a look up close and you’ll see everyone’s clothes are worn through. This is because, without ways to reproduce fabric, they’veĀ  been sharing and passing out clothes for the last century and a half. I have to admit, they’re not in bad shape considering. But imagine eating food substitutes every day, for your whole life… I’m good thanks.

Back to our plot…

When the teens are sent on their mission they’re given special wrist bands that send information about their vitals back to the Ark. This is what is going to tell the law abiding Ark citizens that they can finally return to earth and ditch the one child policy. They’re also supposed to have video contact, but of course that line of communication goes down pretttty quickly.

So, when all they’ve got to contact their friends and families is a wristband, you’d get pretty attached to it right? Wrong.

Guess what our clever delinquents do? Everything bad that happens can nearly always be brought back to Wankerface and his Douchebag Assistants. Sounds like a band.

My partner in watching The 100 has been Lucy, who pointed out that if you’re stranded on Earth, the last thing you’d have access to is hair products. Your hair would be greasy and grimy, at least for a while until it equals out. Somehow Blondie doesn’t feel the need like every other girl I know to throw said greasy grimy hair in a bun and leave it there. No, Blondie lets it all hang out because hers looks amazing. #unfair

To be fair, I think The Sister’s hair may even be more amazing. #LifeIsCruel

While sporting her magnificent hair, Blondie, whose mama is back on The Ark, is determined to make the best out of a bad situation. The only problem is everybody hates her. When we get the Joker and The Sister on board, things may or may not take a turn for the better. I refuse to spoil the show. You’ll just have to watch it yourself.

When the teens land on earth the questions are is earth habitable? will they survive? and, who’s gonna die first? I’ll let you watch to find the answers.

I’m always a fan of post-apocalyptic teen drama… Who isn’t? So this show is definitely up my alley. I’ve devoured the first season and am hoping to see more in time. There are thirteen episodes in the first season, each one full of action and flashbacks, and plot twists galore.

Let's do this guyz!

There’s not even too long to wait before the next season starts. The air date according to IMDB is October 22nd in the States.
