I've been seeing some stuff about something called "the 100" on here and it sounds sorta cool, mind giving a short explanation to what it is?:)

The official summary: When nuclear Armageddon destroys civilization on Earth, the only survivors are those on the 12 international space stations in orbit at the time. Three generations later, the 4,000 survivors living on a space ark of linked stations see their resources dwindle and face draconian measures established to ensure humanity’s future. Desperately looking for a solution, the ark’s leaders send 100 juvenile prisoners back to the planet to test its habitability. Having always lived in space, the exiles find the planet fascinating and terrifying, but with the fate of the human race in their hands, they must forge a path into the unknown.

It’s got a female, bisexual main character whose massive amount of UST with the male main character is incredibly entertaining to watch. The entire cast is gorgeous and the characters are well rounded and their dynamics are fascinating, seeing how they develop and mature and learn to rely on each other is great tv. The plot gets contrived and loses focus when the writers (for some stupid reason) decided that learning how to survive on an inhospitable planet wasn’t enough of a plot and added in all these extra enemies, and the show is a fucking textbook example of the ‘Kill Your Gays’ trope, which is disgusting and awful, but my love for the characters still outweighs my hate for the writers that took over after the first series.
