Title: The 100
Post by: Cyst on May 06, 2016, 01:29:41 am
Who here watches this? I finally caught up to the active airing for this show, and omfl I cry so hard so often.

For those who don't, but might be interested:

The 100 is a dark-tragic medium-hard science-fiction dystopian television series, currently airing on the CW network. It's first two seasons are on Netflix, and the present season is semi-available, as it is currently approaching it's season finale.

It's premise is cheesy, with 100 criminals, all under the age of 18, from space being sent to the earth to see if it is habitable. It gets darker through the first 4 episodes, and includes such themes as "What's right isn't always what's legal/acceptable" and "There are no good guys." It is filled with hard choices, dead characters, and a good dose of redemption.
A beautifully designed 3-dimensional world, with characters that grow from their semi-flat origins, a good heap of interpersonal drama/politics, conlangs and distinct cultures.

Here is a wikia (http://the100.wikia.com/wiki/The_100_Wiki)

Also am I the only person here who cried on S3xE07 (Thirteen)?

Some of my friends are huge fans of this show.  I may eventually give it a shot, but I'm behind on everything else I try to watch, and I'm still wary of shows from CW, even though they've apparently proven themselves with Arrow and Flash.

All of it. If you don't mind spoilers, stuff like this is why it's okay and not great:

Yeah I hate Finn, his character was forced af. His death was good, in my opinion.

But it also hardens Clarke, which I like, because it leaves more room for my favourite ship to develop...

Yeaaaah, about that. Don't get too attached.

Watched another season, I think it's actually getting better.

I feel like they seeded numerous plots in the nooks and crannies of earlier episodes and seasons, and it's all starting to, hm, come together.

Rant: Clarke still literally committed genocide though. For all we know, the historical knowledge and technology of the mountain men died with them and their home. So thanks for erasing like 200 years of human history you dick.

Right? I had several "aha" moments Season 3, gasped often.

To be fair, the Ice Nation destroyed the art, data, and tech. Clarke only killed people, not that it makes anything OK. Also the whole mountain men stealing bone marrow thing?

The mountain man who survived was responsible. He used the ice nation to get his revenge as much as they used him.

The mountain men are responsible for their own death, both as a people and as a culture, in that case. I think that's oddly poetic.
