The 100 is set in 2146, 97 years after a nuclear apocalypse has devastated the surface of Earth. A spaceship called The Ark housing approximately 400 survivors sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth to determine whether it’s habitable in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet.
The Ark has strict measures, including punishment for those over 18 and population control, as the leaders of the Ark take steps to ensure the survival of the human race. But now, resources are running out and The Ark is dying.
With the survival of the human race entirely in their hands, the 100 must find a way to transcend their differences, unite and forge a new path on a wildly-changed Earth that is intense with the unknown.
Clarke Griffin is a major character in the show. Griffin is a medical apprentice and uses those skills to serve as the medic for the 100.
Bellamy Blake is also a major character in the show. Blake is willing to make difficult decisions to ensure the safety of his people.
Octavia Blake often helped Clarke as a medical assistant and collects information on Grounders for the delinquents.
It’s my favorite show on Netflix and definitely others too because of how fast the show’s popularity skyrocketed.
Samantha Quinones, 8th grader said, “A friend referred it to me.” It just takes a few episodes for viewers to get hooked on the show. “The first episode made me want to keep watching,” Quinones said.
The show is more about survival and the decisions that go along with it rather than relationship drama.
“The plot needs to be changed because it’s too confusing, you have to pay attention to follow up,” Quinones said.
The world is literally about to end in a nuclear meltdown so the conflicts are intense. But, the plot and characters are what attract many viewers because it keeps them on their toes.
