After having read The 100 by Kass Morgan, I was so excited to hear that The CW already had a TV version of the story on the way. The plot of the book is really intricate with so many different characters doing different things at different times and yet somehow all the stories are interwoven and connected. That is one of the things I loved most about the book and I sincerely hope that the new television drama sticks to that as much as possible.
As for actors, there isn’t anyone spectacularly talented. That probably sounds rather harsh but that’s not to say that the acting isn’t good, I’m just saying that it’s nothing noteworthy. Most of the actors aren’t particularly well known American actors, sure, I’ve seen a few faces before but for a lot of them this appears to be their ‘big break’ into television drama. I wouldn’t say that there are any particularly noticeable hunks, though I can tell which characters are supposed to be the ‘good looking’ ones. A lot of people will probably disagree but that’s just my opinion. The girls, however, are all beautiful, which is perhaps a little unrealistic given that they’ve been in a sort of ‘prison’ for years, but hey that’s television for you.
All in all, this wasn’t the best debut to a television series that I’ve ever seen but I’ve still got high hopes. I believe that series one of The 100 has been booked for 13 episodes so it’s not all that long and hopefully it will continue after that. So far, the story and the new world is still being set up but the foundation for exciting plot developments has already been laid down. This is a unique story that I hasn’t really been explored before and the CW usually has good shows so I’d recommend getting stuck into this new series!
