1.)This show is amazing! When I first started watching, I had no
idea I would become as invested in it and passionate about it as I
am. The storytelling is cohesive, thought-provoking, and fantastic,
while the acting is top-notch. Every episode feels like a cinematic
experience. It's a shame it doesn't seem to get the recognition it
deserves since it's on the CW. The network should most definitely
promote it more, as it's one of the finest shows on TV and
definitely one of the most interesting sci-fi shows of all time.
2.)At the heart of The 100 is its characters, most all of whom are
extremely well-developed, consistently written, and delightfully
flawed. Bob Morley and Eliza Taylor, in particular, shine as
Bellamy Blake and Clarke Griffin, respectively, the male and female
leads of the show. Together they form the backbone of a complex
cast of characters. Both Bellamy and Clarke are intriguing,
interesting characters in their own right, characters who manage to
flip typical gender roles and expectations upside down. While
Bellamy is passionate, vulnerable, and often openly emotional,
Clarke is far more rational and pragmatic. Their relationship
together is one of the most unique and beautiful relationships to
ever cross the small screen. Between Morley and Taylor exists such
a strong chemistry that even the slightest eye contact can send
fans into a squealing frenzy. They are complemented by other strong
and intense characters, such as warrior Octavia Blake and braniac
Raven Reyes, both superbly played by Marie Avgeropoulos and Lindsey
Morgan. Richard Harmon is a sarcastic delight in the role of the
snarky John Murphy, and Devon Bostick shines as one of the show's
most criminally underrated characters, Jasper Jordan.
3.)I keep loving this show. It's better than it has any right to
be, or at least that's what I used to think. By season 4, it's just
that good. I just read a while back that season 5 is on the way.
Who knew that the CW would be the network to be most faithful to
the types of shows I love?
