On Rotten Tomatoes, the show’s first season was certified “fresh”, with 72% of competent reviewers reviewing it emphatically and the accord: “Although flooded with stereotypes, the breathtaking atmosphere helps make The 100 a rare high-concept convicted pleasure.”
On Metacritic, the first season scores 63 out of 100 points, indicating “generally agreeable reviews.”
The second season was met with more favorable reviews, holding a rating of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. In a review of the season 2 finale, Kyle Fowle of The A.V. Club said, “Very few shows manage to really push the boundaries of moral compromise in a way that feels accurately difficult. Breaking Bad did it. The Sopranos did it. Game of Thrones has done it. Those shows never back down from the profound opacity of their worlds, refusing to provide a tidy, happy ending if it doesn’t feel right. With ‘Blood Must Have Blood, Part Two,’ The 100 has done the same, presenting a finale that doesn’t shy away from the morally complex stakes it’s spent a whole season building up”.
Maureen Ryan of The Huffington Post, in another positive review, wrote: “I can say with some affirmation that I’ve rarely seen a program demonstrate the kind of consistency and thematic dedication that The 100 has shown in its first three seasons. This is a show about moral choices and the consequences of those choices, and it’s been laudably committed to those ideas from Day 1.”
On Rotten Tomatoes, the third season received an overall rating of 100%. Ryan of Variety scribble how limited the extension and the ambitions of “The 100” were two years ago, when a rag-tag chain of oddments first crash-landed on Earth. In season three the show is more publically arduous than ever, and the world-building that escort the illustration of various factions, accord and conflicts is generally admirable.”In a review of the season 3 finale “Perverse Instantiation: Part Two”, Mariya Karimjee of Vulture.com wrote: “Every moment of this finale is pitch-perfect: the choreography of the fight scenes, the plotting and pacing, and the dazling way in which the episode finally reaches it pinnacle. “Perverse Instantiation: Part Two” elevates the season’s themes and pulls together its discordant story lines, setting us up nicely for season four.” In another review of the season 3 finale and the season overall, Kyle Fowle of The A.V. Club wrote: “Before we even get to tonight’s action-packed finale of The 100, it needs to be said that this has been a rocky season. The first half of it was defined by run-down character motivations and oversized villains. The second half of this season has done some work to bring the show back from the fringe, concentrating on the City Of Light and issues of freewill and difficult moral choices, bringing some much needed intensity to the third season. That work pays off with “Perverse Instantiation: Part Two,” a breathtaking, forward-thinking finale that provides some necessary closure to this season.” He gave the finale itself an “A-” rating.
Brian Lowry of The Boston Globe said: “Our attraction to annihiliation TV runs deep, as our culture plays out different futuristic possibilities. That’s still no reason to clone material, nor is it a reason to hand-over characters who are little more than stereotypes.” Allison Keene of The Hollywood Reporter wrote a negative review, stating: “The sci-fi paly presents The CW’s eventual vision for humanity: an Earth inhabitated only by attractive teenagers, whose parents are left out in space.” Kelly West of Cinema Blend gave it a more optimistic review while noting: “CW’s Thrilling New Sci-fi play Is A Keeper. CW’s The 100 seeks to examine that concept and more with a series that’s about equal parts young adult play, sci-fi experience and squeaker. It takes a little while for the series to warm up, but when The 100 inaugurate to hit its stalk, a unique and fascinating drama inaugurate to appear.” IGN’s copyholder or Eric Goldman also gave the show a more optimistic review, writing: “Conquering most of its early burgeoning pains pretty quickly, The 100 was a very durable show by the end of its first season. But Season 2 exalted the series into the upper degree,as the show become one of the coolest and most daring series on TV these days.” Maureen Ryan of Variety named the show one of the best of 2015.
In 2016, the year Rolling Stone ranked the show #36 on its list of the “40 Best Science Fiction TV Shows of All Time”, the episode “Thirteen” captivating criticism when Lexa, one of the series’ LGBT characters, was killed off. Critics and fans considered the death a continuation of a tenacious allegory in television in which LGBT characters are killed off far more often than others – implicitly characterizing them as disposable, as existing only to serve the stories of straight characters, or to attract viewers. A widespread debate among writers and fans about the trope arise, with Lexa’s death cited as a prime example of the trope, and why it should end. Showrunner Jason Rothenberg eventually wrote in feedback that “I write and produce television for the real world where negative and hurtful tropes exist.”
