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

Mount Weather is in the Blue Ridge Mountains surrounded by temperate hardwood forests, oak, maple, walnut and the like. The forests we see are classic taiga evergreens, mostly pine, spruce, fir, etc. Filming in Vancouver means the only forests available are taiga. See more »

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.

Cool SF, but dumb writing, and teens
24 April 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

SF about how humanity's sole survivors were on space stations for 100 years after Earth was rendered uninhabitable by nuclear war. The stations are failing, so criminals (juveniles) are being sent to Earth prematurely and desperately. Teens are so handy for TV, people like to look at them, and dramatic conflict can be easily stirred up on the pretence of immaturity. Excessive drama is not just excused, but mandated, to seem realistic. Anyway, the forest was gorgeous, but with startling and unexpected elements, the girls were pretty, I liked the concept. But there was quite a bit that was just bone dumb. For instance, the stations are running out of time, in their desperately closed ecosystem, so they execute people, for any misdemeanour, by flushing them, alive, with their bodies full of water and nutrients, out into space along with an airlock full of air.
