Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. I cannot wait to share with you guys my topic for this week. Thank goodness for freebie topics!
This week I’m focusing on the top ten reasons you should watch my favorite show…
There really is no explanation needed…two words…Bellamy Blake.
Badass women. The 100 has amazing characters all around (I mean my first reason shows that), but these badass female leads are perfection. Each of them is badass in their own way, but if you want to feel empowered and like you can take on this world. Keep an eye out for all four of these beauties.
You never know what is going to happen. The show keeps you on your toes. It goes in directions you never think it is going to go. You always want to start the next episode as soon as the previous one ends. You never want the show to end.
Character growth. Every character in some way has had something happen to them that has molded them into the character they are going into Season 4. You see characters grow in ways you’d never expect. You also see some characters go down a path you’d never think they’d take. It makes them human and I love that. A lot of shows never allow characters to really “feel” and I just think we can connect with each character in some way and that’s amazing.
Shipping. You will find a couple, or two, you will ship and you will go down with that ship. You will fight for them. Oh goodness, you will.
The young adults take over. The kids are the one sent down to Earth to see if there is any radiation left. They are thrown out with really no clear direction. They take this responsibility head on (for the most part). Seeing these young adults take over and totally kick ass in any way possible is really fantastic. I love seeing how they’re these juvenile, irresponsible people and then they take on this new life. This goes back to character growth, too. I just love seeing them grow.
Friendships. Friendships are there from on The Ark. Friendships born right on the ground. But, then there’s a lot of unlikely friendships that happen and I love that.
The wonderfully amazing male characters.
This is a time where the show/movie is better than the books. Now, I can’t say this with one hundred percent certainty because I have not read the books BUT I have some people I trust who are just not at all fond with the books. They aren’t a total disaster it’s just the show is a bajillion times better. I know we’re the bookish community, but just skip the books and dive right into the show. It’ll be worth it I promise.
All the feels. Like I say above, there are quite a bit of twists and turns so you’ll be on a wild ride…a roller coaster full of different emotions will be coming towards you. & half the time you won’t really know what to do with yourself. You’ll want to jump for joy and then two seconds later you’ll be lying in a puddle of your own tears. Just beware that your emotions are not safe. But, it is 100% worth it.
Disclaimer: these ten reasons are brought to you by a completely crazed fangirl. They may be biased, but they’re really not. I cannot be blamed if you now become addicted. But, I will be here to discuss all things The 100. Also, if you don’t like this show, I don’t think we can be friends. I’m totally kidding…but I may side-eye you a little 😉
Have you guys watched The 100? If not, have I swayed you to give it a try? If you have, who’s your favorite character? & how excited are you for February 1?
