The CW is the last place you’d expect to find the most compelling science fiction currently on television... Throughout the season the “ground” stories became increasingly more exciting, eschewing most teen-drama convention (aside from one ill-advised love triangle) and focusing on interesting questions like who has the right to inhabit the land and the moral responsibilities of being a successful leader.
...the show is a surprisingly feminist take on the apocalypse. The 100 treats violence as a question, not a foregone conclusion. As its characters struggle to survive in a harsh reality, they ask: Is violence truly inevitable? When the end of the world happens, who gets to be in charge, and what should that look like? What if that power was placed in the hands of a teenage girl?
