Does the title ring a bell?
Clarke, Octavia, Lincoln, Bellamy, Finn, Raven, Jasper, Monty, Murphy do they sound familiar?
Oh smokes! How do you not know them.
This is and i think will always be my most favourite series in all time.
Talking about series, am yet to do Game of Thrones (GoT), i have been an outcast for a while now lol! But, yes, i should watch GOT.
Back to my current; THE 100
The setting, the script, is unpredictable, exciting, thrilling and a must watch.
The series is about a group of people living in space who believe that they are the only ones who survived after a major blow on earth that caused it to become uninhabitable. Or so they believed.
Eventually, the oxygen supply in the spaceship, known as THE ARK, starts to dwindle and the leadership has to look for a way to save the population.
Normally, punishment for any mistake, including giving birth to more than one child, is to get floated. Like literally, you are thrown out into space with no survival gear so obviously that is death. That is for all those over 18 years. Those under 18 are lucky enough to get locked up in cells.
Jaha who is the current Chancellor and his team decide to send the under 18 persons who are in lockup, down to earth in a spaceship. As a way of doing away with them, giving them a chance for survival and also to help them discover whether earth is survivable. Among THE 100 is his son.
They get to earth and they soon discover that they are not alone. They label the other inhabitants ‘grounders’/ ‘trikru’ and they get the name ‘sky people’/ ‘skykru’
The grounders have an interesting fashion sense and some really cool tribal tattoos and face art
Grounders speak the language Trigedasleng their main sayings being;
- Jus drein jus daun to mean Blood must have blood!
- Mebi oso na hit choda op nodotaim to mean May we meet again
- Yu gonplei ste odon to mean Your fight is over
Watch as their personalities are put to the test amidst war against selves, grounder enemies, mountain men and the people who sent them on the ground.
I become so absorbed that i want to go fight along with them.
Clarke will be the main feature as she is forced to make hard choices as the leader of the skykru, along with Bellamy.
Octavia, Bellamy’s sister is quite the character. Be careful you might fall for her like i did, or fall for her grounder lover, Lincoln. Their’s is more of the forbidden love, but exciting for even the viewer. You know those scenes you go like, kiss already, because you feeling the chemistry just like them lol! This is one of them.
Then there’s Raven, The Beauty with Tech Brains, and a fighting spirit.
Eventually, THE 100 learn survival tactics, how to make deals, how to kill, bury their dead differently.
They are joined by the others who were left at the ark since the oxygen cannot sustain them.
On the ground, it is survival for the fittest! And it gets juicier, twisted, addictive if i may add, as the story continues. So make sure to grab the series; THE 100.
Yes, it is available on Netflix, three seasons. Just got season 4 from my local movie store (Planet Entertainment behind Eastmatt Kitengela run by Nicho, get him on +254 724681255). Season 5 is currently underway with 2 episodes in.
Lover of THE 100.
