Storyline

Prisoners are sent down to Earth 97 years after humans had left the planet after a nuclear fall-out. They're sent from a space station where humans now live, but they do not have resources and supplies to live and survive in space station much longer. The 100 are therefore used in order to determine if Earth is habitable once more, the 100 must learn to adapt to their new surroundings quickly but factions begin to emerge amongst the 100 and not everyone is playing ball.

Trivia

In the pilot, Murphy scratches a threat to Wells on the dropship. When Wells sees this, he turns to Murphy, who rubs his nose. This would later become a signature move that Murphy does (in 1x12, for example). Richard Harmon improvised this tic; the director wanted him to show that he was holding a knife, that he was dangerous, but it was such a close shot that all he could really do was the nose rub.

Goofs

When a spacecraft is re-entering Earth's atmosphere, passengers are not weightless and cannot "float." Astronauts actually experience the highest g-forces of the entire mission during re-entry, before the parachute opens, as the spacecraft decelerates from orbital speeds to about 200 mph in only a few minutes.

Clarke: [narrating] I felt the sun on my face. I see trees all around me, scented wildflowers on a breeze. It's so beautiful. In this moment I'm not stranded in space. It's been 97 years since a nuclear apocalypse killed everyone on earth, leaving the planet simmering in radiation. Fortunately there were survivors.

Young adult sci-fi. Haven't we have too many of those already? Well, the first episode of "The 100" shows that, if you do it well enough, a done-to-death idea can be fun enough.

Here we have all the ingredients of these kind of shows: 100 under eighteen people are sent back to Earth from a space station, after humanity had to run away (some kind of nuclear war). This 100 very mature and resourceful people (cough cough) include everyone in a 101 YA sci-fi: nerd guy, reckless girl, god-complex suffering guy, etc etc. You will know from second one who is going to get together with, and then who is going to split with to start a relationship with... The summon of originality. The group dynamics don't differ much from this idea: who is the leader, who wants to be the leader, who doesn't but will be...

But even if we have seen this a hundred (sorry?) times, the package is nice, the young actors do a good job, and the adults (which include people from "Lost", "Battlestar Galactica" and others) too, and it's always nice to have some dystopian series to watch, as it is easy on the eye and fast paced. And it may hold one or two cards up its sleeve yet.
