    What is surprising is that the series, an adaptation of the Kass Morgan novel, is well conceived, cleverly plotted, and quite exciting.

    Rothenberg and company are sneaking in a surprisingly sophisticated look at a world filled with want.

    Yes, it's a CW series, but one that poses enough lifeboat-ethics issues to keep a freshman philosophy class busy for months.

    It makes for lively drama, with sharply defined conflicts and characters who aren’t always all good or all evil. Naturally, there are also interludes for romance and mean girls and obnoxious hot-body guys.

    If you don’t think too much about details and leaps in logic, The 100 moves forward swiftly. But the characters seem stuck in place, with one foot placed firmly in central casting. They’re bland, no ish about it.

    It's another faulty futuristic fantasy drama patched together with used parts and overused designs.

I was sceptical at first as I am not a huge fan of the CW's channel however I realised that this is an exception to that thought. I have so far really enjoyed watching it and am hooked. If you like The Walking Dead, Revolution, or Lost, then you will love this show! Some people on here give silly reviews for shows... don't buy into their lies! If you like apocalytic, intense, thrilling, quality dramas, this is your show. It has a nuclear and isolated feel to it and it has yet to disappoint me. If you like the show too, please spread the word as much as possible, the show can't survive without support and good ratings so encourage those around you! Expand

How many times did I see a scene where a man with a knife unties another one but it looks like he is going to stab him at first? I think that particular one was there at least 3 times by the episode 6 of season 2. Really painful to watch. Especially that it is basically a teenage drama.
    But at the same time it hooks you up. You want to know what happens next. So get yourself a bottle of good wine before watching this. You'll need it and you'll thank me later.

They were really my cup of tea and even though there was too much relationship drama I loved it. In season 3 it became too unreal, too weird and too twisted. I lost my interest. Season 4 actually looks like something I could love again so I am giving it a shot but I don't know if it can come back to where it used to be. The characters either became really annoying or they died and there's too much of something that really doesn't feel good but I just can't name it. Expand

The visuals are well done but then its all downI read the professional critics review on this site and thought I'd give a go. What a mistake. The visuals are well done but then its all down hill let down by pantomime level acting and script written for a specific target audience who probably won't watch it because it is 'sci-fi'. This show had promise with a good premise and could go in any number of directions but I for one won't bother seeing where it goes. Expand
