      Post Apocalyptic Sci-Fi Series

      The 100 is a post apocalyptic sci-fi offering that has many elements typical of the genre. We start off about 100 years after the surface of the Earth was destroyed in an atomic war. Thirteen nations have orbital space stations and when the thirteenth is destroyed a truce is eventually called and the remaining station unite physically forming the Ark, what is presumed to be the last remnant of the human race. The Ark has a very dysfunction society were all crimes are punished by execution (floated out of an airlock). Juvenile offenders are reviewed at age of 18 and may be spared. Out story opens with Clarke being taken out of juvenile detention to be sent to Earth to see if the planet can support life, since the Ark is dying. Many elements of the first few episodes borrow from the Lord of the Flies and other science fiction works. The 100 find out in a matter of a few episodes that they are indeed not alone on the planet and the situation worsens on the Ark when over 300 people are "removed from the life support grid" which is polite language for them to be killed to allow the remaining people to live. The culling was voluntary but along with the political fighting that was shown and death of likable main characters revealed a very dark undertone at times in the series. The dark undertone was similar to Stargate Universe. We are left at the end of the season with the remnants of the 100 being taken to what appears to be a surviving military bunker. The ending of the first season has a deja vu appearance similar to Jeremiah season one. Overall a good sci-fi effort but only combines elements already seen in the genre with no new ground breaking plot or story lines so far. Look forward to season two. Blu Ray picture quality is excellent.

      The 100 is like a fine wine: it's a show that only gets better with age. Although the first few episodes seem like typical CW-fare, the emotional stakes and characters continue to develop with each subsequent episode. The story beings when 100 juvenile delinquents are sent down from their space station to the war torn earth, to see if it is inhabitable many years after a nuclear apocalypse. Questions of morality, survival, sacrifice, and cultural politics are the central themes in the first season, and continue on for the rest of the show. The 100 dares to ask questions that other shows are too scared to even acknowledge. It's worth your time, for sure. In my opinion, the blu-ray release is the way to watch this show. With a gorgeous picture quality and an impressive audio track, you will get the most bang for your buck with this release. All 13 episodes from the first season are included in this set. But don't worry because season two is already out to marathon after you finish that intense and shocking cliffhanger at the end of the first season.

      I don't understand the varied reviews of this show. The "100" are juvenile delinquents released from their space station prison sentences to populate a radiated earth: earth is most likely not habitable. But down they go, and when they get to earth they not only experience a "planet" for the first time, but they also have just been released from prison. So imagine, 100 irresponsible criminals get dropped on an earth that hasn't seen a human in 97 years; you might expect to see some strange behavior and you do. The setting is pretty awesome, the characters are interesting and unless the writers completely drop the ball on the story, then you can expect a pretty good show. Also note, all the bad reviews have come from people who have just seen a single episode (who's expectations were probably unrealistic in the first place). This is one of the better pilots I have seen.

      I love sci-fi – and this show caught my attention. I would compare this show to be similar to Lost (which I also love), and Lord of the Fries. The characters are believable, even the "bad guys" – the desperation and their willingness to do whatever it takes to survive made that show more exciting. There are times that I actually had to pause to gather my nerve before I continued watching. The plot twists, here and there, made it more exciting. I know this is a TV show and not real life, I do feel sorry for the characters that they have to fend for themselves. I watched the original on Netflix, and now I have the opportunity to get a Blu-ray copy. (I did buy the DVD version of this, but I believe the compression rate was set too high, and there were parts that were pixelated.) I am hoping for the second season to go on sale, and I will buy that, too. If a sci-fi show with younger characters is for you, you will not be disappointed.

      Going in, I expected another run-of-the-mill post-apocalyptic teen drama. Well, it is that to some degree, but the writing so much better than the majority of what's out there. You grow to love characters that you originally disliked, and even become repulsed by a few of the likeable ones. Just as in real life, a character's actions can have deadly serious repercussions, but he or she may never actually see the consequences first hand. Main characters are constantly being muddied and bloodied physically and mentally, and at the end of the day the ramifications are real and none of them are above being killed off. When this realization sinks in, it truly makes for some very tense moments.

      II'm not into TV shows but this one rocks, the characters are ones you can get to know. As the series progresses thru you ask yourself whats next the episodic style is awesome compared to the random episodes a lot of series do.. I recommend this show to anyone who wants to enjoy a good story and since this is only season 1 you'll b e like me at the end wanting to buy the next season to continue the adventure.

      I was not aware this was even a show until my wife had purchased this series. I had seen it in passing through the room she was watching it in, but never gave it a chance until later. It is a great show about the human power struggle of survival at almost any means necessary. This is a good show that does not have to base everything around drugs or violence. Though there is a fair bit of violence.

      I had never even seen this show when I bought it from Best Buy, but I took a chance on it since it was at such a great price. I am very happy I took that chance, as it's now one of my favorite TV shows currently airing! The show looks and sounds amazing on Blu-ray, and I can't wait to pick up the next two seasons on Blu-ray as well.
