The 100 is The CW’s post apocalyptic teen drama. Season 1 has been on Netflix Streaming for a while, but they just added Season 2 recently. Here’s how I describe The 100: Imagine Lost, with mostly teenagers, and none of the annoying time travel. It even has Henry Ian Cusik. In the world of The 100 the earth has been devastated by nuclear war. Survivors escaped to a space station and lived there for 97 years. But oxygen is running out on the space station. The leaders decide to send 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth to see if it is still inhabitable. Turns out that it is. But they are not alone, Grounders and Mountain Men have survived on the surface of the planet. So tribal warring ensues.

The central character in this drama is Clarke Grifin (Eliza Taylor) becomes one of the leaders of the motley crew of teens. Season 1 doesn’t offer anything in the way of lesbian romance. But it does have lots of strong, attractive women taking on the men, kicking butt and holding their own. In Season 2 we discover that our heroine Clarke is open to swinging both ways. She teams up with the leader of the Grounders, Commander Lexa (Alycia Debnam-Carey), to battle the Mountain Men. Their relationship morphs from foes to allies to friends to potential lovers. It will be interesting to see how their relationship evolves in Season 3. Interestingly, Alycia Debnam-Carey also stars in another apocalyptic drama, the zombie thriller Fear the Walking Dead.
