The 100 Show Review


Gabi Cuellar, Reporter

The 100 is a science fiction, post-apocalyptic, CW original series based on the books by Kass Morgan.
The show first aired March 19, 2014, and ended Sept. 20, 2020, allowing the show to run for seven
seasons. The show takes place in 2149, 97 years after a nuclear war destroyed the earth. For the past 97
years the survivors of the extinction-level event have been living in space, on “the Ark,” an international
space station. But when the Ark starts failing to meet the needs of those who live there, leaders make
the decision to send 100 of their juvenile prisoners back to earth to test if the conditions are suitable for
human life. Now the 100 have to figure out if they can preserve the human race while also preserving
their humanity.

While the show follows the basic plot of Kass Morgan’s book, many details are changed as the show
progresses throughout the seasons. Despite this I think that the changes that were made in the series
were what led to the success of the show.

While I enjoyed most of the show, I wouldn’t exactly give I a 5-star rating. The 100 started off as
entertaining, interesting. However, as the seasons progressed the story plot started to lose its luster. I
personally believe that the 100 should have ended much sooner than season seven in order to preserve the quality of it.

Genre: Sci-fi, action adventure
