The 100 is a new science-fiction TV series set 97 years after a nuclear war destroyed civilization. It’s based on the yet-to-be-published novel of the same name written by Kass Morgan. Watch the official trailer below:
“In the future, humans live in citylike spaceships orbiting far above Earth’s toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the long-abandoned planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources and a growing populace, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland…before it’s too late.
Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents are being sent on a high-stakes mission to recolonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet they’ve only seen from space. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community. But they’re haunted by their past and uncertain about the future. To survive, they must learn to trust-and even love-again.”
If they have no idea what’s waiting for them down there then sending robot and highly trained soldiers would be a smarter move than sending a bunch of juvenile delinquents. But I guess they hope the teens to fornicate and rut like rabbits just to repopulate Earth as soon as possible…
Anyway, here’s a great witty quote about the show as seen on youtube:
