September 23rd is right around the corner. Why is that day important? Well it’ll be the day that you can bring The 100 home on DVD/Blue Ray.
The 100 is based off the book series by Kass Morgan. Now, I loved the book, but even I will tell you that it’s not like the TV show exactly. Yet, I feel like you should read both. But that’s a different story.
If you haven’t watched ‘The 100’ here’s a synopsis –
Ninety-seven years after nuclear Armageddon destroyed our planet, humanity’s sole survivors live on the Ark, an aging space station experiencing overpopulation and inadequate resources. When faced with difficult choices, the Ark leaders-chief medical officer Abby, Chancellor Jaha and the mysterious Kane-decide to send 100 juvenile prisoners back to Earth to test its living conditions.
Among them are Clarke, Abby’s bright daughter; Wells, Jaha’s son; the daredevil Finn; and siblings Bellamy and Octavia. With the survival of all in their inexperienced hands, The 100 young people must learn to rise above their differences and forge a new path on a wild and dangerous landscape that teems with radioactive waste, turbulent weather and unimaginable predators…or face the ultimate extinction of the human race!
For those of you that have, you’re probably wondering why you should buy the DVD? Here’s the extras –
