The 100 is back for S5, starting April 24th 2018 on the CW.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzh2hIv3QbI

Here is a trailer for S5:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giiIq7t4oMQ


It's really hard to describe what kind of show the 100 is, and it's even harder to recommend to people to watch it. But it's a fun show, and unlike most other shows the characters in this one suffer from the consequences of their actions and also change over the course of the show.

For example, this is Octavia, the "we're back, bitches" girl, shortly after landing on Earth:


And this is Okteivia kom Skaikru (Octavia from Sky Crew), aka Skairipa (Sky Ripper), aka Death from Above, from the previous season:


In a nutshell, the story goes that the world is dying and an AI called ALIE was developed to "save humanity."

This is ALIE:


This is ALIE, saving humanity via nuclear apocalypse:

Things don't work out the way they planned it to.

Yeah I know that last gif is wrong but I couldn't find one of ALIE nuking the world the first time.

There's also stories involving nanobots, blood-sucking humans not literally, mass murder/does the end justify the means, and oh yeah relationships like:

Bellarke


Clexa



Linctavia


Masper


Also, Pirate Captain Charles Vane is in this show too.



Please tell me I'm not the only one watching this.

Haha, wow, half the people in the OP are loving dead.

Only Clarke, Bellamy, Octavia and Jasper left. (ALIE too, probably, but I think I'm the only one who still thinks that.)

April 24 so far.

Yeah I mean if you wanna make a real effort post summarizing S1-S4 Iíd happily copy it into the OP. I tried but got super bored halfway through doing it and it was too many so I just deleted everything and threw in a bunch of gifs.

(Also I left dead people in the OP for the 2 people who decide to binge trough all the seasons for the first time.)

I felt really bad for that kid. His slow building suicidal depression was one of the better arcs the show's had.

Hopefully everyone in the idiot bunker follows his lead this season. Or at least Octavia does.

Question, if I recall correctly most of the technically skilled and intelligent spacers are dead because Octavia dumbassily backed the lottery system for entrance into the bunker right? So instead of ensuring some sort of educated, mutation free population base, the majority of the survivors are illiterate tribesman.

IIRC the original plan was each clan would get 100 or so spots with the choice of people up to the clan to decide. Clark made a list of people based on qualifications like ďis a doctor,Ē and then people got real upset and they switched to a lottery system. Jaha went crazy again, demanded all of Skaikru to be let in, and started a riot. Octavia was marching in with her army to kill everyone but didnít have to cause Jaha/Kane used sleeping gas to put everyone to sleep. In the end they went with Clarkís original list.

Should I give it another chance?

I'm gay for this show.

But that's pretty common knowledge.

Odds on for someone to be rocking some pretty wack facial hair early on in the season? My cubits are on Murphy.

Ok I am on season 2 like episode 3 (lol vampires) do they ever like explain anything or do they just drop little nuggets through the show? I mean it seems like there could be a whole lot of interesting world building information but they seem to gloss over a lot of it. I'm gonna stick with it since I'm already into the thick of it but yeah.

By the end of Season 2 you get both answers to everything you think you know while also being introduced to a wider world.

OK awesome thatís good to know. Iím about 1/2 through season 2 now. I mean the show isnít like amazing but itís pretty entertaining. I do enjoy that some times when someone does something really stupid they end up dying lol.

EDIT: Lol some of these characters are so loving stupid lol Finn I accidentally murdered those 18 people in that village lol!!

EDIT: Please tell me Finn dies hahaha I hope he does such a stupid death. He's such an idiot.

EDIT AGAIN: Ok gently caress this "Yeah Finn you murdered 18 people but you gave me my dads watch bag and omg my panties are wet for you again!"

EDIT gently caress : This Finn story line is loving stupid. Dude murdered 18 people in cold blood and they are all oh no we canít turn him over and omg a trial??? No way! Just turn him over what the gently caress! Also they drop that little nugget that he stole 3 months of air from the ark? Man gently caress this guy and gently caress itís stupid why they are trying to protect him.

EDIT HA! Holy poo poo season 2 really ramps it up once you get past the Finn bullshit lol although the vampires are a bit much but still drat good.

Drunk EDIT: So I really have to say the intro to season 2 is pretty drat cool.

I dunno, I think the actual magic radioactive death wave is pretty far up there. This show's always been big, loud, stupid post-apoc sci-fi and I love it for that reason.

Goddamnit I persisted through this poo poo. I wen't through the torture porn of Season 3 and conga-line of "This is our last chance" > "Oh gently caress we failed, we're dead." > "No actually this is our last chance" > "No actually we failed again and are dead" of Season 4. The show finally started turning good with Hunger Games and nuclear apocalypse Pt.2 but goddamn if we aren't getting back to good Season 2 type stuff I will Wanheda the entire loving CW HQ.

And the grounder word for kill is frag. I am totally serious. Makes sense if you think about it since the grounder word for fight is "gonplei" (gun-play), I guess.

Wanheda is a combination of "wan" and "heda," with the former meaning death and the latter meaning head or leader or in this case commander. You don't Wanheda someone, but a Wanheda might frag a gona (warrior/fighter, from "gunner") in gonplei.

i'm in the back 1/4 of Season 2 now, and I see what y'all are saying about Kane. He's come along way from being the sky bitch top cop

does clarke's mom ever make a similar u-turn or does she stay terrible? i will not consider 'she dies' a spoiler, but please don't tell me the reason, i'd like to enjoy that to the fullest

e: and are Jasper and Monty seriously not a couple? between the Masper ref in the op and them sharing a tent in S1 i just took it for granted that Jasper was bi and Monty was gay and they were shacking up like everyone else in the first 100. them playing Jasper as straight and him and monty as 'just close friends' in S2 threw me for a loop

It's not clear where they're taking her at this point. She's probably not becoming a better person though.
