The 100 is set 200 years in the future and 97 years after a nuclear war. A small community of people is now living on a space station, with strict control over the small population. Criminals over 18 are punished with death and those under 18 are contained in individual cells. So, adults are killed and juvenile delinquents are disposable, that is why they are sent to Earth in order to test the toxicity level there.
At first glance I expected something like The Hunger Games. I expected the teenagers to be shocked and do anything in their powers to survive on a planet they only read about. The 100 teenagers sent on Earth were delinquents, I am pretty aware of this, but the last thing I expected to see was a bunch of kids throwing a party like it was their first day in college.
I don’t understand why send them in the first place. It was well known that most of them were not fans of following rules from the beginning, yet the future of the entire humanity stands in their hands.
Probably the most annoying character was Octavia. In the middle of a crisis she would swoon over every hot guy and act like she was on a field trip. Not to mention that she was the first to laugh after a giant snake tried to chew her leg.
