Great of you to ac­knowl­edge The 100 as a watch­able show on your View Screen pages. It’s one of my favourites at the mo­ment. I like that the show has some great char­ac­ter de­vel­op­ment. The show por­trays very re­al­is­ti­cally the ef­fect that the strug­gle for sur­vival has on the moral choices of the char­ac­ters, and doesn’t shy away from killing main pro­tag­o­nists.

My only bug­bear with The 100 is the sci­en­tific foun­da­tion. Ev­ery­thing that has to do with the ef­fect of the ra­di­a­tion on Earth sounds re­ally dodgy. When Clarke makes the com­ment that the Sky Peo­ple are ge­net­i­cally en­gi­neered it seems as if the writ­ers just put that in be­cause they be­lat­edly re­alised that they have to ex­plain their ra­di­a­tion re­sis­tance!
