Critic Reviews for The 100 Season 1

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (17)

What is surprising is that the series, an adaptation of the Kass Morgan novel, is well conceived, cleverly plotted, and quite exciting.

Aug 5, 2019 | Full Review…

The 100 won't make any must-see lists, but with minor tweaks, it could at least have been harmless fun for an underserved demographic.

Top Critic

Our attraction to Apocalypse TV runs deep, as our culture plays out different futuristic possibilities. That's still no reason to clone material, nor is it a reason to deliver characters who are little more than stereotypes.

Mar 18, 2014 | Full Review…

The 100 ends up being sci-fi fun for all ages -- with a spine tingle or two also within these realms of possibilities.

Top Critic

It's building toward 100 reasons to watch.

Top Critic

It makes for lively drama, with sharply defined conflicts and characters who aren't always all good or all evil.

Mar 19, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The 100 is imaginative, surprising and fun - Lost for kids.

Aug 5, 2019 | Full Review…

The 100's premise is so compelling that it makes the soap suds worth tolerating.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

If you're a thrill-lover, The 100 will keep you pressing "next episode."

May 22, 2018 | Full Review…

You know, for a post-apocalyptic dystopian scenario, The 100 is actually pretty hopeful.

Mar 19, 2014 | Full Review…

Yes, it's a CW series, but one that poses enough lifeboat-ethics issues to keep a freshman philosophy class busy for months.

Mar 19, 2014 | Full Review…

It takes a little while for the series to warm up, but when The 100 begins to hit its stride, a unique and compelling drama begins to emerge.

Audience Reviews for The 100: Season 1

    great tv series and a new idea i think s07 will be out of the blue
  • Mar 27, 2020
    Interesting story with characters doing a reasonable arc. It was nice to see both good and bad characters evolving - and pretty much converging, to stay alive.

    I've watched an awful lot of TV shows and I can honestly say this one is the best of all and stands out by a mile. This is the 1st season of many great ones. The character development through this series is like nothing you will have ever seen before. This show is haunting, dark, twisted yet beautiful, happy and most definitely inspiring. The characters show nothing but heart and fight as they overcome some of life's most difficult challenges. It's a sci-go show yet is somehow more relatable then any other show out there and season 1 is just the start. It has a lighter feel that will grip you, introduce you to the characters and leave with so many questions you need answering. This show is an absolute MUST watch and a complete masterpiece. This is the art of TV at its finest, it's what every show should be and it certainly doesn't get enough credit. I can not recommend it enough the cast are brilliant and their performance will leave you loved and in love with their characters.

    this tv show is awesome and it's from top 10 for me

    The perfect show for people who have yet to fully develop their prefrontal cortex. We can't rule out the possibility that the plot points, pacing, and dialog were the product of smooth-brained koalas, nor that those who take a liking to this show are equally as astute.

    Just watched the first season out of the blue because I liked the idea, generally a really enjoyable watch, quite low budget it seemed and some of the story's seemed a little rushed but overall very good! Looking forward to season 2
  • Jan 12, 2020
    This is one of my favorite shows! This first season of course was one of the best! I've rematched all 6 Seasons at least 3 times!

    IF you have a mental age above 'teenager', Only bother if you want to watch a bunch of silly clueless kids (and, for that matter, Adults,) getting it all wrong. Lord of the Flies, it ain't. It wouldn't be interesting if they did it nude. EDIT: It gets better in later series - not a lot, but better
  • Dec 29, 2019
    The weakest season but worth pushing through because the latter seasons are fantastic.
  • Nov 22, 2019
    It's infuriating that people actually enjoy this show, I'm an all-round fan of Sci-fi shows, but the 100 is an example of a teen-flick with a dystopian twist. There are sci-fi shows with a tremendously better storyline with better character development and a SENSIBLE depiction of a post-apocalyptic world, this show just fills like a high-school romance drama ! 5% Sci-fi and 95% teen-drama WHY ?! The Expanse, firefly, Defiance etc. Shows that had a more vibrant plot, were all canceled after a 1-3 seasons. I'm pretty sure this show was not made for sci-fi fans at all. LAME, odd character build-up, with a sac-religious undertone. it BORES me! It's annoying how great the cinematography is with a lot of funding for such a bad storyline.
