Season Two kicks off with Clarke and her friends trapped inside Mount Weather, a nuclear-hardened underground city where no one is safe, especially The 100.
When Clarke escapes alone, it sets off a chain of events for our trapped heroes, the adults on the ground and even the Grounders. Alliances will be made, friendships will be broken and justice will be served.
With everyone fighting for their right to survive, our heroes will have to ask themselves a very important question: How far will you go to save the people you love?
Many will fight, some will die, all will be changed forever in 16 earth-shattering, action-packed episodes.
Available on Blu-ray exclusively through the Warner Archive (www.warnerarchive.com)!
What We Thought:
The 100 is one of my favorite newer genre shows of the past few seasons.
While not a huge hit for the CW, it earned enough buzz to bring it back for a third season.
It’s a great mash-up of The Lord of the Flies, Battlestar Galactica, and After Earth, set in the distant future where Earth is potentially uninhabitable. One hundred under-18 “criminal” kids are sent to the Earth’s surface to see if it’s a viable place to sustain what remains of humanity.
The show has a few moments of suspect dialogue and acting, but overall it’s quite solid. And it takes some chances. There are some shocking moments that rival what a lot of more “mature” sci-fi shows are doing these days.
I’m really glad The 100 is coming back for a third season. Check out this second season collection; it’s really fun stuff.
