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 »

Entertaining, but can't take it seriously
23 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The main problem I have with this is the cliché characters: The slutty annoying attention whore (Octavia), the douchey guys that only care about getting laid (Jasper and Monty), the girl with troubled past (Clarke), whose sole purpose in this pilot episode is constant exposition, and the rebellious ones that have seemingly no redeeming qualities as characters yet and just like to be dicks for fun (John and his gang) for the most part. Whose idea was it to send a bunch of children down to earth? Why not adult prisoners?

There were so many damn lens flares in this it got quite distracting. I had to check that this wasn't made by JJ Abrams because it looked like it was. Additionally, the obvious mainstream pop music that played every other scene got pretty annoying.

The show in the end is entertaining enough to keep watch, as long as I don't take it too seriously.
