Storyline

The series is set 97 years after a devastating nuclear war wiped out almost all life on Earth. The only known survivors are the residents of twelve space stations in Earth's orbit prior to the war. The space stations banded together to form a single massive station named "The Ark", wenis galore about 2,400 people live. Resources are scarce and all crimes no matter their nature or severity are punishable by death ("floating") unless the perpetrator is under 18 years of age. After the Ark's life support systems are found to be critically failing, one hundred juvenile prisoners are declared "expendable" and sent to the surface in a last ditch attempt to determine if Earth is habitable again. The teens arrive on a beautiful planet they've only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. However they discover that not all humanity was wiped out. There are people on Earth who survived the war, called "grounders" by the 100.... Written by Thomas O'Darren

Goofs

In the first half of Season 1, a huge part of the plot involves the fact that people on the Ark assume a deactivated wristband must mean death. This makes no sense. The devices are sophisticated: they can detect respiration, blood glucose, dehydration levels, and body temperature. If someone died suddenly, their heart might stop, but they'd still register a body temperature. Besides, something this advanced would surely be programmed to tell the difference between "no signal" and death. Even a 20th Century ankle-monitoring device can detect when it's been deactivated.

[repeated introduction to episode recap]
Clarke: [v.o] I was born in space. I've never felt the sun on my face or breathed real air or floated in the water. None of us have. For three generations, The Ark has kept what's left of the human race alive, but now our home is dying, and we are the last hope of mankind. One hundred prisoners sent on a desperate mission to the Ground. Each of us is here because we broke the Law. On the Ground, there is no Law. All we have to do is survive. But we will be tested:...

Starts off slow, but builds into a very compelling and interesting story
10 May 2015 | by sam-moore82See all my reviews

If you'd asked me after the first few episodes what I thought of this show, I'd say that it had some good, dark and surprising moments, but was let down by underdeveloped characters, inconsistent writing quality and predictable plot points. After the first few episodes, however, the show realises that it's trying to be a compelling, dark and intriguing survival story instead of a documentary on which guy Octavia wants to sleep with, and it becomes a very addictive show to watch. So the plot for the show is that, after a nuclear war, the only surviving humans live on an Arc orbiting earth. After 100 years, oxygen is low, meaning all crimes are punishable by death unless you're under 18. If you're lucky enough to be under 18, you get executed on your 18th birthday. That is until someone came up with the idea of sending 100 of these children down to earth to see if it's survivable, and thus the premise of the show is set up. It's actually a nice setup for a show, and the good CGI of the Arc as well as a genuinely capable performances by the cast set it off on the right foot, even if the start is a little too rushed (they're literally already being sent down to earth 3 minutes in, and you're introduced to characters in arbitrary ways that tell you nothing about them. The show also reminds you that these are teenagers with predictable romance situations and iffy scripting in place of actual character development. As already mentioned, the show drops these to an acceptable level and starts creating an interesting crew of survivors who get placed into difficult situations and have to work together to survive. The real moment that signified the start of this change was when Belamy (who starts off as your cliché unlikable leader figure in the group) is placed in a situation, avoiding spoilers, where he has to kill someone. It's when the show really starts to bring in the themes of survival and that this is life-and-death. There's also some dark plot twists not long after this that make you realise that they are onto something here. The characters all start to develop into believable people, the writing steps up a notch and the story lines start becoming more unique. This is helped a lot by the utilisation of the adult cast on board the Arc. They are also battling with survival, and there's some great character development done here, particularly with Jaha and Kane. By the end of the season, I actually cared about these characters, their survival and what happened next, and that the show is suitable for all ages and not just teenagers. There's still some cheap love triangles and such where they try and keep the teen audience entertained, but if you can ignore that then there's a genuinely good and interesting show here. I won't talk that much about Season 2, as it's difficult to do so without hitting spoilers, but the show really becomes a must watch by the end. All the characters are put to great use, the writing is great and the storyline feels much more unique and developed.
