ASFKDJ | THE 100 SEASON 1&2

If you follow me on Twitter, you'll probably see a lot of tweets related to The 100. (Mainly Bellarke related stuff #BellarkeTrash) I binged the first two seasons and I love it. The 100 is an: Action, Drama, Utopian, Dystopian, Post-Apocalyptic, and Sci-Fi show on The CW network. A nuclear Armageddon destroyed civilization on Earth. The 12 international space stations joined up to form The Ark. After a few generations, The Ark begins to deteriorate and the supplies dwindle. The Ark decides to send 100 juvenile delinquents to the radiation soaked Earth. The show follows Clarke and her struggle to create/maintain unity and peace despite the wars and hardships on Earth.

I'm going to separate this post into two parts. The stuff before 'read more' will be my general thoughts on the show and after 'read more' will be my "nerdy criticism" on what happens on the show. (Mainly science related things. Gotta get your science right!)

So, *inhales deeply*

This show is Game of Thrones, but BETTER! Now some of you are saying, "Nothing is better than GoT, take that back!" I'm serious, this show is better! It has mostly the same content as GoT, but it's "appropriate" for younger audiences and much more exciting. It's not full of sex, so I can actually watch this on TV without making it awkward! There's also fighting, some political intrigue and (maybe) more character deaths than GoT. I enjoyed the Sci-Fi aspect of The 100 immensely, for the most part (click 'read more').

The 100 is exciting, but it should have a little bit more gore and some cursing, just saying. It has a really interesting plot and the story stands out amongst other TV shows. I love how there were many twists and turns and millions of character deaths. The show keeps you on your toes and makes you go Cot dammit Elizabeth, did that really happen?!?!?! The show also has an amazing cast of characters. Clarke is a bad b*tch. She developed into such a strong, take-charge person. She's such a great leader and she made many difficult decisions. Sometimes shit hits the fan, sometimes it doesn't. There's also Octavia, Raven, Lexa, Indra and Anya... Honestly, this show has a lot of bad ass women! There are female LEADERS!!!!
There's also Bellamy.
This show knows how to play with your feelings. The people behind this show know how to make you hate/love people. Although this show is super great, I thought the lighting kind of ruined it. The frames were too dark sometimes and it was hard to make out what's going on. There were grammar issues too, says the girl with horrible grammar. I would have liked a better transition between the seasons. I felt like some info was missing.

Other than that, I think that's pretty much it. This show is great! I totally advise you to watch it on Netflix. If you don't have Netflix, ask a friend like I did.

Now to Science: Beware of Spoilers
-Because Earth is soaked in radiation (I really do think this is a real possibility), Earth is uninhabitable. Maybe use a drone or rover on Earth. Transmit all info back to The Ark. If we can gather info from Mars, when can get info from Earth in space. We're living in space!

-Running out of Oxygen?! *sigh* You can turn Carbon Dioxide into Oxygen. (I googled it and it's possible). Because humans were able to kill the Earth, technology must have advanced enough to make Oxygen from Carbon Dioxide. I'm sure you can also isolate the Oxygen from the water in space.

If you're going to write a Sci-Fi book and adapt it into a TV show, make your brain think like a pessimistic 15-year-old know-it-all with "survival" skills. Basically, dumb yourself down.

-The radiation prone "Mountain Men". The medical procedures are so rudimentary. Human blood bags?! This isn't Mad Max!!! Maybe create a vaccine or do something with T-cells. The lack of medical advancements makes me have even less faith in humanity and I have like 0 faith in humanity already.

Seriously, you need to watch this show.

  1. I thought Season 3 of this show was a bit rocky, but overall it was pretty good. I got really mad at Clarke in the beginning as well as Bellamy in the middle, and I still hopelessly ship those two. I can't wait to see what happens in the next season! Crazy things I'm sure :)
