The 100: what is it?

Hey guys! I am back and today I will write about a new series that I started that is called The 100.
Before I begin in I would like to say that this is a fantasy and adventure series, personally I am absolutely obsessed with two of the main characters (you will meet them in the first episode if you watch The 100).

These characters are Bellamy Blake and Octavia Blake (between the two I love Bellamy but Octavia is pretty awesome too).
The 100 is an American television series created by Jason Rothenberg, loosely based on the series of novels of the same name by Kass Morgan, airing from March 19, 2014 to September 30, 2020 on The CW.

The 100: the plot and setting

The first episode of the series was broadcast on Italian TV for the first time on 1 October 2014 on the Premium Action channel, while the last episode was broadcast on 8 February 2021 on the same channel. Tthe first two seasons were broadcast, starting from 19 May 2015 in the late evening, on Italia 1, while from the third season the series was broadcast on another channel.

The story is set in 2149, 97 years after a global nuclear war in 2052 that shook planet Earth, only one space station remains of mankind, the Ark, of a complex of 12 minor space stations that were in orbit at the time of the disaster. The Ark has very strict laws to maintain order: whoever transgresses is punished with death by expulsion into the void. But now, the Ark is dying with population growth and the rapid deterioration of recycling facilities.

The 100: my personal opinion

The members of the Council decide to send one hundred juvenile delinquents to Earth to check if the planet is habitable again. These young boys will embark on a very dangerous journey on a planet that is fascinating to them but unknown and will have to find a way to overcome the differences.

I haven't watched the whole series yet but I like it very much. If I'm not wrong they are about 7 seasons, so yeah it could take a little bit of time to watch it all but maybe the person reading this could be a fanboy or a fangirl and watch all the seven seasons in one week. That will be very much impressive guys, let me know if you watched this series and if you liked it or if you will watch it and what do you think of it.
I will see you next week.
