the F U T U R E T I T L E S

The 100 ratchets up the stakes and tension to the maximum and never lets up again.
The 100 is one of the best genre series on TV.
The 100 careens through sci-fi subgenres, pulling them together in a single narrative that has infinite room to grow and explore.
The show, as a whole, [has] resolute exploration of the moral contradictions of governing, warfare, and survival.
The 100 has a marvelous way of diving back into the world they’ve created, throwing new stories and tying up ones with loose ends.

I am considering of going to Congenda for one day but even if it's just one day, it's alot. I realized autograph and selfie at the table cost money too. I can't make any decisions at all with the table. Watch me panic about driving. Totally am having a breakdown.

I blame all of you guys for having an urge to go to a convention.

Yep, the autographs and selfies do cost money, but it’s totally worth it for the experience, if you ask me.

Oh Adie, that sounds like a great opportunity.
I hope you will get over your driving panic when the day comes

I really hope that you can go, Adie. In case you still prefer not to drive, is there any convention that you can take a plane to?

An earlier article on The 100 (April, your tweet made it here!) :



Quote:
Beginning 97 years after a nuclear apocalypse destroyed life on Earth, The 100 follows the story of humanity’s last remaining survivors, orbiting the irradiated planet in a space station that is quickly running out of resources. Driven by their desperation to survive, the decision is made to send a hundred juvenile delinquents down to the Earth’s surface to determine whether it is habitable. The delinquents find out that not only is the Earth habitable, it’s inhabited — by a warrior tribe who view the newcomers as threats to their land.

Humanity’s desperation to survive is the driving force behind much of the series, as the heroes make riskier and harder decisions in the name of survival, always at the risk of losing themselves. While the series starts as a teen drama reminiscent of Lord of the Flies, it quickly evolves into something much darker, more complicated, and heavier, where every decision has consequences that often cause a domino effect that echoes throughout the seasons.

It’s the characters and the relationships they forge with each other that are this show’s greatest strength: an artistic teenaged healer who will stop at nothing in the name of saving her people; a self-centred rebel king who comes to seek his own redemption through the protection of his family — both blood and found; a young zero-G mechanic who goes through more loss than anyone and yet contains a steely inner strength that allows her to carry not only herself, but everyone else, as well.

There is no right or wrong in this show, or good and bad; only the question of what one will do in the name of survival — whether that’s survival of self or survival of the species — and the point at which the scales tip so far that the cost of survival is no longer possible to bear.

You really have.

Another great review (non-spoilery extracts from it) :

Quote:
What is clear in all of these scenarios — on the ground with Clarke, in the air with Bellamy and in the bunker with Octavia — is that The 100 has found its way back to the spark of inspiration by getting back to the roots of the kind of story the series has always told best: one about the foibles of humanity and the inherent cycles of violence that come with it. And it has does so through a narrative device that has always made it one of the best pieces of genre fiction on television: reinvention.

Through its highs and lows, The 100 has always excelled at expanding and evolving the world it plays in, shifting the landscape in drastic yet natural ways. It did so first in its very concept, taking us from space to post-apocalyptic Earth, and then with the introduction of the grounders and Mount Weather, crashing the the Arkers to Earth, the City of Light, and so on. The 100 embraces the freedom of genre storytelling fearlessly to constantly uncover wondrous and despairing realms to explore (ok, mostly despairing). In keeping with series tradition, the end of Season 4 saw a significant culling, both of characters and dragging storylines, and as painful as it was to see them go, it was a necessary and a due evolution. This season’s time jump seals the deal, and once again The 100 drops us in a new reality where the ground has shifted under our feet.

Even for a series that always embraced change, we’ve never had such a head-spinning reset; essentially a mid-series soft reboot. It’s a brilliant move, thrusting the action forward toward the future once again, rather than spiraling inward toward the secrets of the past. That’s not to say there weren’t clever strokes in the way The 100 expanded its mythology in recent seasons, but the deep dive into the history of ALI and the secrets of the first apocalypse always felt like it was bringing us to where we already were. Now, The 100 feels like its forging forward again. The series hasn’t forgotten its past, to the contrary, the parallels between Season 5 and Season 1 ensure every moment is ripe with remembrance of it, but it is narratively free to move in exciting new directions.
Quote:
That’s the magic of The 100’s story, the way it inspires empathy for its characters despite their hideous actions and forces you to explore morality from a place of emotional complicity. It’s a high-wire act that can easily topple over into perpetual punishment, and the series hasn’t always nailed the balance, but it has never shied away from the complexities.
I don't agree with this bit however:

Quote:
“There are no good guys,” Clarke says as she fires off a killing shot at one of the intruders — an interesting reversal from the Grounder attacks in Season 1. This time we’re on the side of the people defending their land, but it’s certainly not the moral high-ground.
I'm not a huge fan of Grounders in general and they're definitely flawed too but they were defending their land against the perceived intruders (the delinquents) at that time, and I kind of dislike comments like this.
