The 100 The Complete Second Season
 

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 10/10/15

This is a fun scifi show, and I've been watching it since the first episode. In face you don't know, the show is set in the future after mankind has moved to space stations orbiting a nuclear-radiated Earth.  They have very strict rules, which results in a lot of teens getting incarcerated (mostly for minor offenses). When the space station is running out of air and food, they send 100 of these youths down to the Earth to see if it's inhabitable or not. The teens find that the air is breathable, but there are many creatures and humans of all types to deal with. Clarke (Eliza Taylor), who's the daughter of the station's doctor, ends up being in charge of the group, along with Bellamy (Bob Morley). The show has a huge ensemble cast, but Clarke is the heroine and main focus of the show.  They all find that they have to make tough decisions and grapple with horrible situations.

The second season opened with Clarke waking up inside a clean room, on a hospital bed.  They have all been taken in by a group that has been living underground. We learn during the course of the season that there are a couple of different reasons why they live underground still and want they want from Clarke and her group (and there are different agends), plus we meet new characters, which adds to the fun.

Meanwhile, the rest of the station has come down to Earth, including Clarke's mom.  The show takes many interesting twists and turns. It's very compelling and draws you in. This is not a show for the squeamish because it can be quite violent and gory, and people die. I really enjoy it, despite the fact that sometimes it's a little gross, or they kill off my favorite characters.  I can't wait for the new season!

One of the things I love about this show is that they have multiple generations. Not only do they focus on the kids down on the planet, but they also have great actors playing their parents and other adults on the station as well as other people on the planet. The CW always picks very attractive, young-looking actors, for the most part, even for the parentl roles, but still...

Anyway, the DVD comes with some good extras. It has a good featurette that I loved watching, and their 2014 Comic-Con panel, as well as gag reel and deleted scenes. It's definitely worth having. You definitely want to buy the first season DVD first if you haven't seen it, or you might not really know what's going on. They do a pretty good job of catching you up, though.

THE FIGHT FOR CIVILIZATION CONTINUES AS WARNER BROS. HOME ENTERTAINMENT RELEASES

THE 100: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON

ON DVD OCTOBER 13, 2015

DVD features all 16 episodes plus extensive bonus features including behind-the-scenes featurettes, a gag reel and deleted scenes!

BURBANK, CA (July 6, 2015) – For the Ark Survivors on Earth, the alien planet they’ve never known is a mysterious realm – a paradise one moment, lethal the next. Join the stars of this post-apocalyptic drama as they take steps to ensure their futures in the Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) release of thrilling The 100: The Complete Second Season on DVD.  Based on the bestselling young adult book by Kass Morgan, and a Top 5 show on The CW with Men 18-49, The 100: The Complete Second Season will feature all 16 episodes and is available to own on October 13, 2015 for $39.98 SRP.

Set almost 100 years after mankind nearly destroyed itself in a nuclear Armageddon, the surviving members of the human race aboard the orbiting “Ark” space station take the first step to recolonize Earth, by sending 100 juvenile delinquents back to the planet’s surface to see if it is habitable.  In the first season, they discovered that the Earth is not quite what they imagined – and that they were not alone.  Survivors from the nuclear apocalypse have broken into dangerous factions including The Grounders, Reapers and Mountain Men.  The first season finale found all of the survivors of the Ark returning to the surface, while The 100 fought for their lives against the Grounders.  In Season Two, our heroes find themselves alternately challenged, supported and betrayed by their own people and alliances with the Grounders, but always manage to reach common ground in survival, as they face off against the lethal forces of Mount Weather, whose civilized environment masks a horrible secret. 

The 100: The Complete Second Season stars Eliza Taylor, Paige Turco (Person of Interest), Thomas McDonnell (Suburgatory), Bob Morley, Marie Avgeropoulos (Cult), Devon Bostick (Diary of a Wimpy Kid), Lindsey Morgan, Ricky Whittle (Austenland), Christopher Larkin, with Isaiah Washington (Grey’s Anatomy) and Henry Ian Cusick (Lost).                      (more…)
