Great show! However, just like many others, from the Fonz to the Friday Night Lights "teenagers," they look like they're going on 30.

After watching every episode of the 100 season one, I got hooked. My friend recommended it to me a few times but I did not end up watching it until a few months later. I watched the first episode and I gave up because it was completely burning and I could not watch it for another minute. One day I got bored and decided to watch it again. The first two episodes were very tiresome to watch but after that all the action came rushing in. I watched hours of the show and after the first two episodes every single moment was full of action-packed scenes, as well as great acting. I binge-watched the show on a regular basis and I ended up finishing the first season in less than two weeks. If you do not like scenes with blood or fighting I wouldn't recommend the show because that basically is the plot! I am very happy that my friend recommended the show to me because without it I would be very bored with nothing to watch. I would rate the first season of the 100 a 4/5.

The 100 is one of the most intriguing shows I have come across. It is a galaxy type of theme, involving outer space and fictional stuff in the future. It is set 97 years after a nuclear war ruined earth and the last surviving people live in space stations. These stations came together to form their territory which is known as the ark. Because the ark's life support will soon fail, 100 teenagers who have done wrong (considered prisoners) are forced to be sent to earth to test if it is safe to live on. We mostly follow the main character, Clarke Griffin, and her surroundings which she comes across threats and battles that she must face in order to survive. Once I started watching it I couldn’t stop. I recommend anyone above the age of 14 to watch this series! 5/5 stars

Liked this series way more than I thought I would. If you're anything like me, and read the description thinking, "Law-breaking teenagers sent to a post-apocalyptic earth? Yes, please!" be forewarned: the first episode sucks. As in, the first words on the ground are "We're back, b*tches!" and then some teens form a group full of all the trope stereotypes, while the rest of the teens throw a big raging party.

However, once you make it through that (and you do have to, because otherwise the rest of the episodes won't make sense) everything gets way better. It's got the survival action of Lost, the alliances and tough choices of Game of Thrones (don't get too attached to any of the main characters!), and even some Battlestar Gallactica going on with the adults still up on the space station orbiting earth, doing that odd dance of politics and betrayal and an ever-dwindling air supply. The cast is very good, and none of the characters are squeaky-clean heroes, all of them struggling with what's in front of them the best they can. The series is not just extremely watchable, it's hard to look away from.

And, okay, it's not perfect. Like, everyone speaks American English 100+ years in the future? And all the teenagers are so pretty, it's amazing the way there's access to make-up and fashionable clothes, even though they have to eat roast jaguar for dinner to stay alive. But if you don't think to hard about the science part of the science fiction, it's a great story.

I haven't finished the series (somebody had a request on it after I did), but it's not bad from what I've seen. Very much "lord of Flies" meets the newly exploded 'teen dystopia' genre, 'The Hundred' is sharply written, competently (but not brilliantly) filmed and framed, and the actors are serviceable in their roles. I don't like the characters of virtually any of the teens, but i suspect that is because I am older than the intended target audience. This is certainly better viewing for a teen than 'Twilight', so there you go. Also, my friend is the Grounder blacksmith, so there's that.

Really enjoying this series. A mix of high-tech locale on "the Ark" in space and a forest camp down on Earth. Reminds me some of The walking dead as they adjust from a well-ordered society to a survivalist mentality.

This show manages to incorporate many different aspects while being incredibly entertaining. Issues of family, friendship, love, war, leadership, and more are discussed. Important questions about morals and difficult decisions are asked, that despite the show being set in the future, are very relevant today. Great acting and sets make for a well-rounded production.

Have only watched the first episode so far and I was hooked within the first 5 minutes. Lots of entertainment. I was actually disappointed I had to head to bed for the night because I could have kept watching this series. Will for sure be what I am watching this week. Adults who enjoy sci-fi will like this as much as the teens.

Exciting SciFi series that will remind you of a cross between "Lost" and "Lord of the Flies", with maybe a little of the "Island of Dr. Moreau" mixed in. Acting is quite strong especially with Australian newcomers Eliza Strong playing Clarke, and Eli Goree as Bellamy. These 2 actors square off for leadership of the 100 teens dropped on a post-nuclear Earth with different strategies, but end up finding out they're more alike. Though extras say that they tried to be scientifically sensitive, it's hard to believe that 100 years would make the Earth viable to the point that it's portrayed. Yes, there are mutated animals, but the plants don't seem effected, and surviving humans don't look physically different, just have bad attitudes!
