The 100: The Complete Second Season (DVD)
Set almost 100 years after mankind nearly destroyed itself in a nuclear Armageddon, the surviving human race aboard the orbiting “Ark” space station take the first step to recolonize Earth, by sending 100 juvenile delinquents back to the planet’s surface to see if it is habitable. In the first season, they discovered that the Earth is not quite what they imagined – and that they were not alone. Survivors from the nuclear apocalypse have broken into dangerous factions including The Grounders, Reapers and Mountain Men. The first season finale found all of the survivors of the Ark attempting to return to the surface, while The 100 fought for their lives against the Grounders. In Season Two, Clarke and Monty have been captured by the Mountain Men and are being held inside Mt. Weather, but the fate of everyone else is unclear.]]>

Sadly the ratings have not been very high for this futuristic thriller I think partly because it is shown on the CW Network, the smallest of the four over the air networks.
The story continues from season 1 of a group of young adults sent back to Earth after living on a space station all of their lives with their parents to escape a nuclear holocaust on Earth.
With supplies dwindling the elders decide to send the younger generation back to earth that they hope can now support humans again after many years have passed.
In season 2 we witness the emergence of leaders among the people sent back to Earth and the challenges and dangers they face trying to survive.
Intelligent writing, direction and acting make this a must see show.
Season 2 is, in my opinion, even better. The conflicts are more character based than event based, a plus in my book; the actors - those that survived the first season - seemed more comfortable in their roles; and there was less reliance on special effects. The writing, which I thought was very good in the first season, went up a notch in this second season due primarily, I think, to the fact that the situations were more "real." In this season the castaways and - later - the entire population of The Ark were forced to deal with a plethora of issues ranging from distrust of "the others," maneuvering for control of the group, the need for alliances with former enemies, betrayals, and the eternal conflicts that arise when young people and their elders have to come to a mutual decision for the good of all. Not everyone handled their new situations well; some went completely off the rails while others made difficult choices based more on emotion than on reason.
This season's episodes have been reviewed countless times already so I won't add much more to the pot except to say that I thought Eliza Taylor as Clarke Griffin; Paige Turco as her mother Abigail; and Thomas McDonnell as Finn Collins were outstanding in their roles. McDonnell was especially good, I thought, as his character's personality frayed to the point that he became violent and unpredictable during the season. It was a treat to watch a young actor handle this difficult role with such finesse.
The introduction of "The Mountain People" along with the Mount Weather subplot, bringing the rest of the inhabitants of the Ark to the ground, and further development of "The Reapers" and "The Grounders" allowed the writers more space to fill with character development. There's still a fair amount of over the top, unbelievable plot points in season two, but the momentum is shifted toward character depth and plot density. Suddenly, I found myself actually caring about the characters and becoming interested in the post apocalyptic landscape.
If you were put off by poor quality writing (and acting) in season one, stay the course and don't give up. Season two is a fresh start and a much more enjoyable viewing experience.
Other than that this show is definitely my top favorite
UPDATE** HAVE A FEELING THIS DVD THEY SENT ME IS A FAKE I JUST GOT A BRAND NEW TV PLAYED THE 1ST AND 3RD SEASON DVD IN MY NEW TV AND I CAN EASILY TELL THE DIFFERENCE BEWARE OF THE SELLER!!
By the time Season 2 came along the action began to build up and you had a history of most of the main characters. I am a fan; in hooked and am waiting for the long awaited year wait between Season 2 and the impending Season 3 which should return within the first three months (hopefully) of 2016. Whenever it returns I will be eagerly awaiting it's return.
