Looking for a new TV show addiction, darlings? Let me introduce you to one I think has the potential to be a new fave: The 100. Okay, so I might be a little bias because it’s from the same network (The CW) and creators (Alloy Entertainment) that brought you moi, but isn’t that reason enough to know it’s going to be oh-so-good?
A little background on the plot: 97 years after a nuclear apocalypse, a group of 100 juvenile delinquents are sent to Earth to see if it’s inhabitable for the rest of the survivors to return from space. Of course in between all of the “trying to save mankind” adventures, there’s sexual tension and romance happening among the delinquents. Oh, and lots of drama…..
My only fault with this show is the lack of designer clothes featured on it, but I suppose it wouldn’t quite make sense for a community of people living in space stations for almost a century to have access to Prada and Chanel, so I’ll overlook it. Actress Eliza Taylor (Clarke) joked about it recently saying, “I’m hoping in season two we discover an abandoned mall or something, and there’s like all these new clothes hanging on racks.” I could get behind that–everyone loves a good shopping montage!
Check out the preview for the show below. And watch the premiere episode tonight at 9 pm ET on The CW! XOXO
