The 100

Mystery . Sci-Fi & Fantasy . Drama . Sci-Fi

Season one of The 100 saw the human race return, after a 97-year exile in space, to a wildly transformed Earth...only to discover that the human race had never truly left. Clarke found herself forced to lead a band of disposable juvenile delinquents as they faced death at every turn - from a world transformed by radiation, from the fierce Grounders who somehow managed to survive in it, and, perhaps worst of all, from themselves. Alternately challenged and supported by rival leader Bellamy, the two found common purpose: Survival. Through it all, Finn was helplessly drawn to Clarke, destroying his long-standing relationship with the brilliant young mechanic, Raven. Octavia got close to a possible enemy Grounder, Lincoln -- some say too close. Meanwhile, as The 100 fought for their lives on the ground, The Ark's situation was no better. Though Abby believed that The 100 were still alive, she didn't have proof and couldn't stop Kane's population reduction. The killing of 320 volunteers and the subsequent realization that it was in error broke Kane and enflamed a revolution on the Ark that Chancellor Jaha, despite his best efforts, was powerless to stop. Both on the ground and in space, the final episodes will reveal the true desperation of their plight, as our heroes risked everything just to stay alive. Noble sacrifices and heartbreaking choices changed everyone forever and left them scattered to the wind. The epic second chapter picks up with the newly returned human race desperate to be reunited. Season two's quest will challenge them beyond anything they have faced before. Hearts will be broken. Lives will be lost. Heroes will be born.

    [A] strongly acted thriller, which seems to add another intense dimension weekly.

  • Hank Stuever

    A refreshingly taut and well-executed futuristic sci-fi series about a group of 100 jailed juvenile delinquents who are banished from an orbiting space-station colony and sent to live on Earth--97 years after a nuclear apocalypse.

    The 100 is better than it has to be, a little more exciting and surprising and intense.

  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    What is surprising is that the series, an adaptation of the Kass Morgan novel, is well conceived, cleverly plotted, and quite exciting.

    The 100 offers up a well-conceived society on the Ark that brims with conflict and moral dilemmas that’s paired with the unexpected discoveries of frontier exploration on Earth.

  • Jeff Korbelik

    This one has promise because it’s not formulaic. I have no idea where it’s headed, which is kind of nice for a change.

    Rothenberg and company are sneaking in a surprisingly sophisticated look at a world filled with want.

  • Ed Bark

    The 100 ends up being sci-fi fun for all ages--with a spine tingle or two also within these realms of possibilities.

    It gets better, digs deeper and reaches farther than anyone might have predicted.

    It's some solid CW cheese. [21 Mar 2014, p.58]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Tom Long

    At first, it seems like your typical show from the CW, overstuffed with bushy-haired teens in a sci-fi situation. But after a while the series, based on a book by Kass Morgan, reveals influences ranging from “Lord of the Flies” to “Battlestar Galactica,” with more than a few hints of “The Hunger Games,” “Lost” and “1984” tossed in.

    The 100 is imaginative, surprising and fun--Lost for kids. [24 Mar 2014, p.39]

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    A high-concept guilty pleasure that comes as a bit of a creative relief after a dreary season of derivative spin-offs, reboots and retreads.

  • Ellen Gray

    Yes, it's a CW series, but one that poses enough lifeboat-ethics issues to keep a freshman philosophy class busy for months.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Even with some shaky performances, there’s enough happening--including a few genuine surprises in the first half-dozen episodes--to sustain interest.

    Variety Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    The good news is this modest show already has a number of things in its favor: Its pace is bracing, the choices are difficult and the danger the characters face is real.

    The Huffington Post Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    It makes for lively drama, with sharply defined conflicts and characters who aren’t always all good or all evil. Naturally, there are also interludes for romance and mean girls and obnoxious hot-body guys.

  • Mark A. Perigard

    Cusick has done this role before so often, he might even be mixing and matching scripts. Washington looks so bored, he might nod off. The 100? If we’re marking days on a calendar, that’s being optimistic.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    As The 100 goes along, you can feel it becoming more and more the show that Rothenberg and his writers want it to be, but it sure starts off at a great distance from from that destination. And even as it gets closer, there are still too many moments of mind-numbing illogic.

  • Matthew Gilbert

    If you don’t think too much about details and leaps in logic, The 100 moves forward swiftly. But the characters seem stuck in place, with one foot placed firmly in central casting. They’re bland, no ish about it.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mike Hale

    A predictable mix of violence, sex and sentimentalism.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    The character complexities, special effects and attention to detail position The 100 well on the CW food chain.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    The fate of the kids on the ground is closely bound with the fate of the people in orbit, and vice versa. But it is hard to care about the people in orbit, as seriously as you're asked to take their predicaments and sacrifices. And it is not much easier to care about the people on Earth.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Allison Keene

    The 100 has a lot of interesting things to play with in terms of its narrative and world-building, but it chooses to gloss over them.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Michael Starr

    I just can’t shake the feeling that I’ve seen it all before--and that The 100 is another piece of The CW’s generic series puzzle.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mark Dawidziak

    It's another faulty futuristic fantasy drama patched together with used parts and overused designs.
