It keeps you waiting for the next episode.

Once you get beyond that whole ridiculous idea then the show is like Lord off flies mixed with Lost mixed with I don't know what.
Jazzy
It has everything we love in a show, sci fi, action, and a little bit of romance.

First, I've just watched the pilot. 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 plot/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.

It's hard to believe that The CW is the network for some of the best genre TV on air. Science fiction shows are hard to find these days, particularly space-based sci-fi, so it is refreshing to see that The 100 offers just that.

The casting is pretty good and for the most part I like the main characters: Clarke (the lead female character), Finn (a character I expected to be just a good-looking opportunist, but who ended up being one of the most compassionate characters in the show), Raven (another strong, smart female character), and Bellamy, as well as Dr. Abby Griffin. It's a CW show, so everyone is good looking, but the nice thing is they can also act. Even though I knew about a couple twists from the trailers, the first episode quickly makes you realize that this is going to go to some dark, scary spaces.

I like that the story follows both the teens sent to Earth and the adults remaining on The Ark, since both settings provide great opportunities for dramatic storytelling. As an adult myself (in my early 30s), I have a greater respect for the dilemmas of the adults and as a BSG fan, I appreciated the practical and ethical struggles the adults on The Ark are faced with.

Teenage characters are usually difficult for me to relate to, since in TV they tend to be annoying, self-absorbed, and reckless. However, in The 100, these teens are forced to grow up fast and make life and death decisions without any guidance from the adults.

There was a lot of exposition in the first episodes and some of the dialogue was clunky, since they were trying to explain a lot of backstory, but these elements improved as the season progressed.

I have to admit, I started watching this show half-expecting to hate it. The idea is well-traveled science-fiction terrain, with last year's 'Oblivion', starring Tom Cruise, being one of the closest and most recent comparison's. But that happens all the time in Hollywood, with nearly identical film concepts racing each other to theaters to end up playing simultaneously: 'Armageddon' and 'Deep Impact', for example, or this year's 'The Double' and 'Enemy', both about emotionally crippled young men who have their lives upended by extroverted doppelgangers. But I thought 'The 100' seemed like a cynical cash-grab counting on fans of 'The Hunger Games' and 'Divergent' to tune in. Well, it certainly will appeal to the same demographic, but this series, based on a book by Kass Morgan, is much more than a cynical cash-grab.
It begins on 'The Ark', where a small remnant of humanity have lived for nearly a century, waiting for the radioactive aftermath of a nuclear holocaust -- which came close to rendering mankind extinct -- to dissipate. As the Ark, a cobbled-together amalgam of various space stations like 'Mir' in geo-stationary orbit, nears the end of it's life-expectancy, the ruling council makes a desperate decision. In a society where the punishment for virtually every crime is being blown out an air-lock, or 'floated', they still don't execute their young offenders. But when the series begins, following 17-year old Clarke as she and her fellow prisoners are taken from their cells, her mother -- who is a Doctor and member of the ruling council -- tells her that she and 99 others are being taken to a Drop-ship bound for Earth.
What follows is an exciting and well-written tale that borrows liberally from film and literature without seeming wholly derivative.

Apparently, many people only watched 1 episode and then wrote a review. So, they missed all the agonizing decisions and sacrifices that are made by both the juveniles and the adults on the Ark. They also totally misunderstood the characters. Sure, some are stupid, but the leaders, Bellamy and Clark and even Octavia, are not criminals. Octavia was imprisoned just for being born since no person was allowed to have more than one child. Bellamy, her brother, is an older, trained security officer that snuck on board to watch after Octavia, and Clark was imprisoned because she knew a major secret - the fact that the Ark is dying. Her mother, who is a high profile doctor, wanted her on board the drop ship so she could possibly survive. Clark has a lot of medical training that she learned from her mother, and even Monty and Jasper have some superior skills at engineering and farming techniques. They were just stupid enough to grow some "improper plants" and got caught. Finn wasn't a criminal either. He basically took an illegal "spacewalk" that used too much oxygen and was stuck in prison for it. So, all the juveniles are not just idiot criminals. There is a lot of intrigue, suspense, and eventual heartbreak that make the show dramatic and leaves you wanting more. There are constant surprises that keep the storyline fresh as well. I look forward to season two.
P.S. I am a sci-fi lover, former high school science teacher and over forty, so I'm not some teeny-bopper who likes shows that don't make you think!
