The 100 tells the story of 100 young people who were sent down to earth from space as a test to see if the earth is habitable again after some nuclear apocalypse took place years ago. However, they realized that some people actually survived it and saw the ‘Sky’ people as threats. The 100 people must fight to earn their place on earth, make alliances with the various Grounders and fight to defend their territories and their lives.
- Where does the show rank on your favorites’ list?
- From 1-10, how obsessed are you?
Maybe a 4.
- How did you discover the show?
Either on Facebook or YouTube. Saw the trailer and I decided to check it out.
- What was your initial thought of the show and did it change after watching it?
I was intrigued by the plot of having 100 young people sent down to a supposedly empty earth as ‘punishment’ and a test to see the earth is yet habitable again. It was an eye-opener seeing teens suddenly grow up to take charge of their own affairs to survive.
- Why do you like the show?
I loved season 1 in particular seeing how they managed to set themselves under one leadership, find out who one can trust and have alliances with…it was great. Seeing how circumstances and choices change people in unbelievable ways was interesting to me.
- Who are your favorite characters in the show?
I like Bellamy, Octavia, Raven, Monty and sometimes Clarke. I liked Finn as well till he was killed off. It’s just that, as the story progresses, I’m beginning to like Clarke less and less. I understand she’s normally put in impossible situations but I’m afraid the tough decisions she is forced to make is slowly killing her humanity especially in season 4. Deliberately exposing someone to radiation just to test a theory so she and her people can survive Praimfaya (sounds like prime fire) as well as closing down the bunker so her people will be the only ones to survive was heartless.
- Least favorite character in the show?
Jaha…even when it seems he’s on the good side, I can’t help but have the feeling that he has his own ulterior motives to whatever he’s suggesting to the group. And after what he did to force people to take the chip to get to the City of Light, I trust him even less.
- Favorite villain
The villains come and go with the seasons and they have all done fairly well to me.
- How would you kill off your favorite character?
Clarke? Hmmm…perhaps die in trying to save her people…again.
- Who is your crush on the show?
I liked Finn! I was so sad when he had to be killed and by who? Clarke!
- If you were to be a character, who would you choose?
I’d go for Raven.
- Favorite season
Seasons 1-3, I found very interesting. Season 4 isn’t so bad but it’s taking too much effort for me to watch it.
- Do you follow the cast and show on Twitter and Facebook?
I follow the show on Facebook.
- Which of the characters would you like to meet?
Marcus, Raven, Octavia, Bellamy and Clark
- If you could meet any of the actors, who would it be?
The actors who played the characters mentioned.
- What lesson(s) have you learnt from the show?
Being a leader especially in hard times is no joke. You make decisions you never imagined you would ever make. The rules of engagement change when you are in survival mode. We don’t really know people for who they really are until you get to see them in different situations. No matter the storms that come your way, don’t lose yourself. You may find your way back when you lose track but when you lose a sense of who you are, finding your way back could be nearly impossible.
Do you watch the 100 show? What do you think of the characters and the sub plots? Kindly share your thoughts.
