It's so, so, good you guys.

There are a lot of layers and subplots, but it's set in the future, where the human race all live on a big old spaceship after ruining Earth and evacuating.

After a couple hundred years of space life, 100 delinquent teens were sent back to Earth to see if it had become habitable again. It was... but after a while it turned out they weren't alone on the planet. It sounds very sci-fi, but I personally do not like sci-fi shows at all, and wouldn't really say The 100 falls into that category.

I don't want to give anything away, but basically what follows is three seasons of war, truces, action, suspense, adventure, plot twists, and a lot of general drama.

Season 3 introduces all these fucking NUTSO ideas about faith and artificial intelligence and ~the greater good~ and it's truly goddamn incredible.

Also the show totally normalises queer relationships. Yes, these characters have a lot of problems going on, but NONE of them have anything to do with their sexuality.
