The 100 review
Searching for a new show to pass your quarantine time? Are you into science fiction?
How about post-apocalyptic storylines? Do futuristic shows interest you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, The 100 might be the perfect show for you!
Written by Jason Rothenberg and closely following Kass Morgan's eponymous book series, this action-packed thrilling adventure hit the big screens in 2014, but that doesn’t mean it has gone out of style just yet! The creators just released the last season fairly recently, and it is scheduled to return to screens post-COVID with a prequel.
The show takes place 97 years after a nuclear apocalypse supposedly wiped out all life on Earth. The human species took refuge in a space station named The Ark. A group of criminal teens is sent down to Earth in order to test whether it can be inhabited again.
The adventure shadows Clarke Griffin and her relationships with characters including Raven Reyes, Monty Green, Jasper Jordan, Octavia Blake, Bellamy Blake, and John Murphy through a tumultuous series of events: encountering a sizable group of humans referred to as “Grounders” who understand Earth to be theirs; extremely technologically advanced equipment and those who have mastered it; and climate circumstances unknown to the protagonists, who step on Earth for the first time of their lives in the first episode!
Through the twists and turns of the seasons, this epic expedition is not one you want to miss. All seven of the seasons are available through the CW, Netflix, and Amazon. Join Clarke on her adventures, and maybe soon you’ll be able to translate phrases such as “Mebi oso na hit choda op nodotaim” from the show’s most incredible language Trigedasleng, or “forest language,” spoken by the Grounders and accepted by Clarke and her friends. Considered a dialect of modern American English, Trigedasleng is a fascinating language developed in order to contribute to the uniqueness of the post-apocalyptic world and immerse the audience in the new Earth.
