E4’s new show ‘The 100’ premiered on Monday night, and so far the programme has received mixed reviews from critics and TV fans on Twitter.
The sci-fi series is set in a Dystopian future, years after a nuclear war has destroyed human civilisation.
Everybody who survived the disaster is living on a space station, however, a lack of supplies causes leaders to decide that 100 young offenders should be dropped back onto earth.
When it was first screened in the US, Vulture’s reviewer enjoyed the show, writing, “The 100 is better than it has to be, a little more exciting and surprising and intense”, and a number of UK viewers posting their thoughts on Twitter shared this sentiment…

However, not everyone was as impressed. In a mixed review, The Independent’s TV critic writes: “The blend of young-adult drama and science fiction didn’t always work - it was a bit like a futuristic version of Sun, Sex and Suspicious Parents.”
The Western Gazette were less than complimentary too, writing: “It's US sci fi for those with the attention span of a gnat with so much packed into an opening episode it's difficult to entirely wrap your brain around exactly what occurred.”
