It's so, so, good you guys.

Hello all and thank you for your attention. I'm here to talk to you today about a show called The 100 which will change your life*.

The CW

*Okay, maybe not. But it's really good.

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.

The CW

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.

The CW

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

But, believe me when I say that it's not just ~another teen show~. I'm an adult and I LOVE IT.

The CW

The best part is, it's FILLED with badass women.

The CW

Most of the clans or tribes in the show are led by women, and none of them give any fucks.

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.

The CW

Which is very fucking rare, let me tell you.

And the cast is a lot more diverse than a lot of other prime-time shows out there.

The CW

It's one of those shows that just grabs you by the heart and drags you in, giving you no choice but to love the shit out of it.

Not to be dramatic but this show wants to make me hurl myself off a cliff.

Anyway, Season 4 starts this week, and it looks like it's going to be QUITE A RIDE.

The CW

The first couple seasons are on Netflix so you really have no excuse.
