Once I started watching the show, I got their obsession. The show (at least the early seasons) prioritizes positivity, diversity, and inclusion.

WARNING: Major spoilers for Season 1 of "The 100" ahead I know people who dislike romance, especially when it distracts from more important plot elements. In my view, there's no such thing as too much romance. Okay, that's not true.

Why I love and hate “The 100”: THE WRITING

WARNING: Major spoilers for Season 1 of "The 100" ahead As I said last time, I like watching this show.

I LIKED… Continue reading Why I love and hate “The 100”: THE WRITING
