(from The CW's press release, May 2014) Season one of THE 100 saw the human race return, after a 97-year exile in space, to a wildly transformed Earth...only to discover that the human race had never truly left. Clarke (Eliza Taylor) found herself forced to lead a band of disposable juvenile delinquents as they faced death at every turn - from a world transformed by radiation, from the fierce Grounders who somehow managed to survive in it, and, perhaps worst of all, from themselves. Alternately challenged and supported by rival leader Bellamy (Bob Morley), the two found common purpose: Survival.
The epic second chapter picks up with the newly returned human race desperate to be reunited. Season two's quest will challenge them beyond anything they have faced before. Hearts will be broken. Lives will be lost. Heroes will be born. Based on the book series by Kass Morgan, THE 100 is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Jason Rothenberg (upcoming "Twilight Zone" feature), Leslie Morgenstein ("The Vampire Diaries") and Gina Girolamo ("The Lying Game").
3/19/14 (We.) 9:00 PM The CW (#101) Pilot
Interesting premise, I did hear the plot from the book was rather weak. I actually liked the pilot and the following 2 episodes. Some of it was very cliche young teenage rebel stuff, but I have been watching quite a bit of Discovery's Naked and Afraid and I can't believe how stupid these kids are being as far as finding water and not boiling it and gathering firewood etc .... In one case they are too stupid to live and really I don't have a problem with that for some of them. I am surprised not more of the local fauna or flora has killed them. Overall it has promise.
3/26/14 (We.) 9:00 PM The CW (#102) Earth Skills
4/2/14 (We.) 9:00 PM The CW (#103) Earth Kills
These episodes just continue what had started in the pilot. I do wonder how it seems that only Clarke, the main heroine, seems to have any kind of survival skills. She can read a map, knows her medicine and seems to be able to hike for miles in the rugged wilderness without food or water and she is not directionally challenged.
Since Wells was the only one digging graves who will do it now that he has been killed and what about the latrines?
