I always come late when it comes to a review about something. I wanted to review Garance Dore’s book but I haven’t finished it yet, so I guess I have no choice but to write about something I actually have seen/watched/read, like the 100.
Apart from Pretty Little Liars, which is my absolute favourite tv programme ever, I also have a thing for the 100. Maybe because I used to watch it in Canada two summers ago, but also because my positivism matches perfectly with dystopian novels.
The 100 is a tv series (3 seasons, of the third there is only episode one online by now) set at the beginning in the space, on the so called Ark, and then on the Earth, destroyed and polluted after a nuclear war. You can read a more detailed plot on Wikipedia, I am sure about it.
In fact, what I wanted to talk about was not the plot, but the fact everyone is somehow trying to imagine the survivors of a nuclear war. As I have mentioned countless times, I am against any kind of war, fight and hot debates. I am a pacifist I guess, but this has really surprised me.
Hunger Games? Dystopian future. Wool/Shift/Dust? Even worse. Divergent? Is our world really so terrible that we cannot wish for a better future? I guess so. It is a little strange, I have to say, that the most popular option is a war. Maybe we should not only enjoy this tv series, but also learn from their already made and solved mistakes.
Do you watch the 100? Is there a particular tv series you would like me to review?
Have A Safe Journey!
