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

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:...

The Expanse meets Game of Thrones meets Mad Max in a forested post-apocalyptic North America.
3 May 2020 | by razrmaxx73See all my reviews

Alright, as you might know, The 100 is a CW production and most CW productions pull from the Vancouver Actor's Guild (my phrase) so you'll see a mix of familiar faces from other shows. And CW shows tend to focus around Millennials doing their thing. Which is OK, because given the quality of writing they can deliver.

Second, let me explain my Review title.

The Expanse. I mentioned this because The 100 deals with these very large space stations either in orbit, or crash landed. So it just gives the show a bit of the Expanse feel to it in that regard.

Game of Thrones. On the ground (planet Earth) there are 12 tribes of Grounders (apocalypse survivors) that are fighting each other and Sky Crew (our civilized group of humans) and all this has a bit of a Game of Thrones feel with all the political intrigue that goes with it.

Mad Max. Being that The 100 takes place 97 years after a nuclear holocaust wipes out the planet, the survivors (Grounders) adopt the survivalist look we all know from the Mad Max films. Except instead of taking place in a desert wasteland, it takes place in a heavily forested (nature has reclaimed the land) North America.

If you enjoy any of these types of genres/tropes, then you'll love The 100.
